Break up the O’s!

5 out 6 of the last games have been wins for the Orioles.

I got home about 8 tonight and got to see a good chunk of the 6-3 win tonight (I listened to some on the way home on the XM too…that’s why I love it).

Nick Markakis 3-4 with 3 HR’s. All solo shots. Nick’s now batting a robust .306. His first half struggles seem long long ago.

Adam Loewen 8 innings 4 hits 1 run 7 K’s and NO BB. After I guess the first, he retired his last 20 (or something close to that). He showed some great control tonight.  His record now stands at 4-4.

Brian Roberts and Corey Patterson also added solo shots and Miggy hustled from 1st to score on close play at the plate off a Jay Gibbons double. The only bad part of this game was LaTroy Hawkins in the ninth. 0.2 innings 2 runs and 2 BB. Chris Ray though struck out LaTroy Hawkins, the only batter he faced to get save number 29.

What a game tonight. Loewen and Markakis are supposed to be part of the future for the Orioles and tonight they certainly looked the part.
