Another day, another win against the Orioles. We are now a remarkable 10-0 against them this year, And today on the 101st game of the season we go for number 11. These games against the O's gives our guys a great chance to keep streaks going too.
Last night Morrow made a good start in his return to the mound. Tonight Romero gets his chance against the lackluster O's. Last time out Ricky was saddled with the loss against the Tigers as he went 7 innings giving up 3 runs. He did end up walking 4 and only striking out 3 which got him into a bit of a trouble. He takes on the ace of the staff for Baltimore in Kevin Millwood. Millwood really started the year strong but since then he has seen his ERA and WHIP both climb to above career norms.
|2010 - Ricky Romero||7-7||20||20||2||1||0||0||130.1||120||58||51||8||51||116||3.52||1.31|
|2010 - Kevin Millwood||2-9||19||19||1||0||0||0||114.0||142||80||74||21||38||86||5.84||1.58|
The lineup goes back to the trusty ol number 1 tonight, Buck behind the plate hitting 8th and EE batting 9th everything else remaining the same. That being said our Bullpen should now be fully charged after the double header on Sunday and likely Downs, Camp and Gregg should all be available if the need arises.
As a side note I really hope the weird buzzing I was getting last night on ALL sportsnet channels is gone. I honestly couldn't take it and had to turn off the game. And in the comments Craigincalgary mentioned he had it too so it wasn't just in my head..... well I guess it could have been in both our heads... does that mean I think like Craig? A truely disheartening notion.
