In game one, the Orioles collected three hits, but left 10 runners on base and went an awful 2-for-13 with RISP. The Orioles had a 3-2 lead, but Jimmy Yacobonis relieved Dan Straily in the sixth and allowed three runs in 2/3 of an inning.
In game two, Alex Cobb came off the injured list and was promptly hammered by the Twins for nine runs on ten hits, including three home runs in just two and 2/3 innings pitched. Mike Wright came on things got out of hand. Brandon Kline came on the 7th and pitched a perfect inning in his major league debut, but came back out for the 8th and allowed to homers. Chris Davis came on in the 9th and allowed a home run to Jonathan Schoop, but otherwise pitched pretty good.
Renato Nunez was the hitting story for the Orioles, going 5-for-9 with three home runs and four runs batted in across both games.
