I went to the game yesterday for the first time since Opening Day. All in all it wasn’t a bad game for the first part of it. Jedd Gyorko crushed a home run, which will hopefully get him started, and Eric Stults pitched a decent game. However, the Orioles are a tough team with a great lineup and we saw that yesterday as JJ Hardy and Chris Davis both hit homers to give the Orioles the win with the help of a bullpen collapse.
