Another day, another 1 run loss to Yanks.

Javy “Rally Killer” Lopez flied out with 2 on, 2 out in the bottom of the tenth to end it.

Luis Matos went 0-4, with 4 K! He should have been wearing pinstripes today.

Corey Patterson stole his 23rd base today.

Adam Loewen made his first major league start.
I was pretty happy with the results.
5 innings worth of work 6 hits 3 earned runs 4 K and 4 BB
It’s something solid to build on.
And…unlike Bruce Chen, he did NOT give up a home run.
Though I think he should spend the bulk of this season in the minors, I hope he gets a couple more starts in the majors. Shoot, what do we have to lose? Are we going to put Chen back in the rotation? Loewen’s the future, so we might as well let him get a little time in now.


Right-handed pitcher Daniel Cabrera was short with reporters on Friday, answering every question in a one-liner. The right-hander has spent two weeks on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, and he said that he has no pain in the joint. He also said he doesn’t know when he’ll pitch next, but the Orioles are eyeing a Monday return.

Cabrera threw on the side Friday and last pitched in a game on Wednesday, which was also Bruce Chen’s last appearance. Chen is currently penciled in for Monday’s game, but that could change. At worst, Perlozzo said that Chen would pitch a few days later — he’s not being skipped and he’s not being removed from the rotation.

Please Sam…just admit that Chen is stinking it up and leave him in the pen.

Jay Gibbons is on the DL ….and the hits keep on coming.
