Birds Give Tenth Inning Gifts, Don’t Sweep Ghetto Fabulous A’s

Pedro, Pedro, Pedro.  Yesterday’s loss was not really your fault, but since you were on the mound when the game ended, we’ll blame it on you anyway.  Strop has to be frustrated today. With the score tied in the bottom of the tenth, Pedro gloved a ground ball that could have been an inning ending double play, instead Strop air mailed his throw to second into the outfield.  Trouble babes.  When the  next A’s batter weakly grounded to third, Manny Machado  got into the Bad News Bears routine by chucking his throw into left field while trying to get the lead runner at third.  Game over.  It was an ugly ending to a crazy ass game but it probably won’t really bother the Birds, who have now won 5 of their last 7.  On to Seattle tonight as this long west coast trip continues.

Simply put, this guy’s the man.

Our boy Miguel Gonzalez again was the victim of one bad inning.  He was looking dominant through five, allowing only two hits, but it got rough in the sixth.  Miguel allowed four runs before being yanked for Troy Patton.  He did leave with the lead though, and could have still registered the win, but the normally reliable bullpen let him down later.

Meanwhile the offense is clicking.  Nate Mclouth is currently the best lead off hitter in baseball.  Yesterday de was 4-5 with 4 runs and a stolen base.  He is now batting .351 for the season.  His on base percentage is an incredible .455. And by the way, he jacked a home run off of a left-handed reliever on Saturday.  He is an everyday player.  Buck don’t bench him against left-handed starters, we’re beggin’ ya babes.

Combined numbers for Adam Jones and Chris Davis  are:  .350, 18 doubles, 13 HR, and 48 RBI.  Real pleasant.

Tonight the Orioles travel to Seattle to face former Bird and post- season hero Joe Saunders (1-3) .  Zack Britton (0-0)  gets his first start tonight.  Will somebody please step up in the fifth starter role.?!  C’mon!

Go O’s
