The Same as it Ever Was... Orioles Lose To Indians, 5-1; Reimold at 1st?

On Sunday, the Orioles were deftly handled by Jake Westbrook and the Cleveland Indians, 5-1.

As time has shown us fans again and again this season, the offense could not break through and Westbrook – who missed more than a season with an injury – pitched nine strong innings. He would have had a shutout if not for a late Luke Scott solo homer in the ninth inning.

In the end, Baltimore made Jake Westbrook look like a Cy Young candidate – literally.

The Orioles had nine hits on the afternoon; however, they stood no chance against the Tribe – who took the three game series winning two of them.

Baltimore’s Mark Hendrickson started in place of David Hernandez (who was schedule to start the game) because of a sore shoulder. He lasted five innings while giving up three runs.

Cleveland got the majority of their runs off homers both two-run shots – one from Matt LaPorta in the fifth and the other from Russell Branyan in the 9th inning.
