Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well enough to win a 4-2 contest. He allowed a second home run of the night to a fellow, Ty Collins, who had been 0 for 30.

It was not pretty.

Starting Pitching

Five strike outs, Three walks and those two home runs. In five innings.

Relief Pitching

The Orioles have a new closer, or setup guy, or pitcher of the day. Miguel Castro called up from AA Bowie. He pitched a scoreless eighth and final inning with a strike out and no hits or walks. That will get him attention.

Hitting

Welington Castillo is back with a vengeance, three for four. Jon Schoop was two for four and Both Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo doubled. Mark to the yellow line. That was the difference of this game.

Fielding

There is a viral Iglesias meme going round today.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
