Ubaldo Jimenez did not pitch a no-hitter. He allowed two hits. And he walked one. He returned to the scene of the crime and he conquered. He is the Orioles Hangout Player of the Game

- Ubaldo. Eight innings of wonderment. 98 pitches. 71 Strikes. Eight Strikeouts.
- Brad Brach allowed a hit and collected his 15th save.
- Joey Rickard went 2-for-3. With a double. And walked.
- Jonathan Schoop was 2-for-3 with a sacrifice fly.
- Caleb Joseph doubled with the second RBI.
Yep, they caught them all. And no one was one base.
Caleb Joseph on his pitcher from MASN
“For the most part I think a lot of it has been the movement has been out of the zone, or missing the spot. So when that happens, you either walk guys or give up balls centered in the plate,” Joseph added. “When he’s been able to locate and find out where the movement is starting and able to pinpoint that you usually get good results. The thing about pitching is you’re always just trying to disrupt timing. When you have four pitches that move totally different and you can execute different quadrants, you can keep them off balance. Boy he did that tonight and it was a lot of fun.”
