About Last Night...

The Orioles on Wednesday night lost their second consecutive game of the season at the hands of the Rays, 4-3.

In yet another close loss, Evan Longoria once again touched up the Orioles thanks to a two-run double in the 5th inning that gave Tampa a 3-2 lead. He struck again with a long home run in the 8th that gave Tampa an insurance run and would be enough of a cushion.

Of course, with Pie out with a shoulder issue, Reimold was in left field on Wednesday. As we know, Nolan is trying to come back from a serious leg injury. From my point of view, it still looks as if his running ability is still hampered.

I bring this up because perhaps if Pie was out there, he might have caught Longoria’s double that perhaps should have been caught by a more-fleet-footed outfielder.

Oh well.

Baltimore had their hands full against Matt Garza (1-0) as he went eight innings and gave up two runs – one earned. Garza struck out nine and would walk two.

The Orioles scored twice on Garza in first inning as a Miguel Tejada had an RBI-single and Nick Markakis would score on an error.

However, after the opening inning, the bats for Baltimore would be rendered quiet until the ninth inning as they came within one run, 4-3, thanks to a Garrett Atkins RBI-double to plate Matt Wieters.
