Game 27: Orioles 1, Yankees 4

The Good:

* Nick Markakis singled and walked.

* Miguel Tejada went 2-4 with a double and a flyout to the warning-track. Also looked good at third-base once again.

* Garrett Atkins DH’ed, and picked up three hits including a double. Yes, Atkins was the team’s hitting star of the game.

* Brian Matusz looked pretty good, and pitched a quality start against a tough line-up (even with a couple back-ups in there); 6 IP, 6 H, 3 R (1 ER), 3 BB, 2 K. The unearned runs came as a result of his own throwing error

The Bad:

* Adam Jones took an 0-fer and struck out twice. Wiggy too. And Scott.

* Matt Wieters one-upped them with 3 K’s, and also grounded into a double play. Not exactly his best game ever, though he did almost pick a runner off of second-base.

The Final:

AJ Burnett picked a great time to find his strike-out stuff, K’ing 8 Orioles’ batters and holding them to just one run (also scoring on his own throwing error). O’s lose 4-1, and drop to 7-20 on the season.
