Another home run by Nolan Reimold (4th game in a row!) and one by JJ Hardy gave the O's their second win in the series against the White Sox yesterday. That guarantees them at least a split, and they'll get two chances to take the series.

The Good:
  • Fantastic first inning by Tommy Hunter, as he struck out the side. For the game, he 7 whiffs (and a number of called strikes) on his breaking-balls. There were a number of cutters thrown as well that looked pretty good.
  • Chris Davis AND Mark Reynolds made nice plays on defense. Really.
  • Kevin Gregg was used in the correct role (team down by a lot), and managed not to give up a run despite allowing a hit and walking two.
The Bad:
  • The rest of Hunter's innings, which totaled 4.2 IP, 9 H, 8 R, 4 BB, 5 K, 2 HR. He's now given up 6 home runs on the season, and his fastball is averaging just under 90 mph. Building-block! When Wada or Britton or whoever is ready to take a rotation spot, moving Hunter to the pen seems like it might be a good idea. They could use a long-man out there certainly.
  • Jake Peavy pretty much completely shut down the O's offense, who had almost twice as many strike-outs (9) as base-runners (5 hits, 0 walks, 1 error).
The Final:

That was, let's say, not quite as good as the previous two games. More "usual" Orioles baseball. At least with the Blue Jays' loss, the O's retain control of first place in the AL East.
