Orioles Start Off 6-Game Trip with Loss to Giants, Huff and Bobby Valentine Speaks

The Orioles started a 6-game, 2-city road trip that kicked off against the San Francisco Giants on the left coast last night. Unfortunately, much like a recurring scene that has taken place over and over again this season, yet another Oriole starting pitcher got himself in trouble early and literally buried his team before the game ever got going.

Baltimore lost for an astounding 47th time in 64 games as San Francisco won in a laugher, 10-2.

Chris Tillman, before his callup has been succeeding in Triple-A Norfolk, took the loss again – his second of the year at the major league level. He didn’t look good at all as he gave up six runs in two innings of work, including a five-run second inning highlighted by a Pat Burrell (yes, the man cut by the Rays).

Jason Berken, who has held in own in relief for Baltimore this season, and Matt Albers each pitched two scoreless innings to stop the bleeding; however, the Giants busted the game open in the eighth by scoring four times off reliever Frank Mata.

Matt Wieters hit a absolute bomb – a solo homer – to left-center field in the second inning and Ty Wigginton had an RBI-double in the eighth, but that was all the offense Baltimore got.

Once again, the Orioles made another pitcher from the opposition look like an All-Star. Pitcher Jonathan Sanchez easily got the win as he gave up two runs on 7 2/3 innngs of work.
