Today's Game, Around the 'Net and Adam Jones Unplugged...

This afternoon, the Orioles lost 6-5 to the Minnesota Twins; however, the biggest news of the day happened real early in the game as pitcher Brad Bergesen got drilled with a line during the 4th pitch of the game (and didn’t make it past the first batter, Denard Span).

Considering how shaky Bergesen has been throughout March, today’s start was very important to him – and the team. Right now, the only thing that the tests and X-Rays found were a contusion, but it could have been much, much worse. Who knows if he will be ready for Spring Training, or if things turn out to be serious; however, the Orioles may have dodged a bullet.

The Twins did all their damage in the second inning in which they plated six runs. Reliever Mike Ballard – who came in for Bergesen – got crushed thanks to a two-run homer by Delmon Young, and runs driven in by Mike Cuddyer, Matt Tolbert and Tsuyoshi Nishioka. Justin Morneau had an RBI sacrifice-fly.

Although the Orioles got a two-run homer from Adam Jones, and longballs – solo – by Jake Fox (his freaking ninth of the Spring) and Nolan Remiold, it was too little, too late for the Orioles.
