That is sure a lot of dots in the strike-zone. The kid is good. * Felix Pie with a 3-5 night. Hopefully his hot start will encourage Dave to just let him keep playing. * Ty Wigginton hit a two-run bomb, which gave the O's their biggest lead of the season at the time (3-0). Then he homered again (a solo shot) in the bottom of the 10th. Think he'll get some more at bats. * Luke Scott, pinch-hitting in the bottom of the 8th with the team down 5-3 and a LOOGY being brought in, hit one heck of a home run. Tied the game at 5 in most exciting fashion. The Bad: * The 8th inning. Matusz was tired - leaving the fastball up and with lower velocity. He gave up 4 singles, resulting in a run (losing his shutout). Then Jim Johnson came in. Got Zobrist with the bases loaded, but gave up a two-run single to Longoria. Then Will Ohman came in. A single and a double to score two more. Just like that, the O's went from up 3-0 and firmly in control to down 5-3. Brian Matusz didn't deserve to have to sit in the dugout after his sterling start and watch it all be given away. It was painful, frankly. * Matt Albers got the task of keeping things even in extra innings, and he failed miserably. Two walks, and then a towering home run by Carlos Pena. Ball-game. The Final: Orioles lose 8-6. Now 1-7 on the season. Terrible. (Not the team, so much as the games thus far.) I don't even know what to say. It's just been a horribly trying start to the season. The days they score, they can't pitch. Most days they pitch but can't score.
