Its a wonderful day in Charm City and the Cincinnati Reds will be playing the Baltimore Orioles in the final contest of their three-game interleague series. It's partly cloudy day out and very comfortable out this afternoon. We are in the press box this afternoon.
Of course, the Orioles won Friday night thanks to Derrek Lee's walk-off homer in extra innings; however, they lost yesterday as an ineffective pitching corps lead by Brian Matusz got hammered by the swinging Reds, 10-5.
It's pretty obvious that there's is something very much wrong with Matusz. I didn't see the game since I was out of town; however, caught snippets of it on the radio and the kidsimply didn't have his stuff. Matusz isn't throwing very hard, and when he tries to locate his pitches, hitters have been getting good wood on his offerings. Overall, Cincinnati got all their runs off homers, and last night Camden Yards became a launching pad.
