Leftovers from Yesterday; Photos: Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles; Baltimore Gets Its Heart Ripped Out..
I'll have more as the day goes along about the Red Sox series; however, last night's loss was painful.
With the game tied at 2, the Oriole bullpen could not hold off a charge by the Red Sox. Jim Johnson have up a run in the seventh inning off a Dustin Pedroia infield single, and then in the eighth inning reliever Mike Gonzalez came into the game and added more fuel the fire, unable to get anyone out and giving up an RBI-single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
After Gonzalez got the hook, Berken came in and gave up a two-run single to Jacoby Ellsbury. That would bury the Orioles for the night.
Brad Bergesen pitched well as he allowed two runs in six innings worh of work. He got off to yet another rough start as Boston's Adrian Gonzalez plated in both runs -- one in the first with a double, and the other in third with a single.
Just a flat night for the Orioles. Jon Lester owned them again.
Derrek Lee -- who is starting to heat up at the plate -- drove in Brian Roberts to the tie at one in the first inning.
Vladmir Guerrero crushed a solo homer into left center field in the sixth inning to tie the game at two before things fell part.
The Baltimore Orioles are now 10-13 on the year; however, on the bright side, they took two out of three from the Red Sox.
Always a very good thing.
About Mike Gonzalez. He just looks all out of sorts and you have to wonder will he figure it out on the mound sooner rather than later.
