John Means made a spot start and kept the Orioles in the game. The bats stayed silent so they fell.


Lefty Means lasted five innings allowing four hots and a run. It would have been enough for the loss as the Oriole gave him no support. He struck out three and walked one. A very nice outing up in Boston for a left hander.

Other Pitching

Evan Phillips and Miguel Castro put up zeros, Paul Fry allowed a run and Josh Lucas two. Phillips struck out all three batters he faced. Lucas gave up his runs and Fry’s with a big fly. In a third of an inning.


Trey Mancini and Richie Martin both doubled. Hanser Alberto, Jonathan Villar, and Renato Nunez singled.

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.
