Game 102: Orioles 4, Yankees 2

The Good:

  • In what could be (and probably should be, though I doubt it) Jeremy Guthrie’s last start as an Oriole, he did a fine job; 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 5 K 1 HR.
  • In what could be (and probably should be, though I doubt it) Koji Uehara’s last appearance as an Oriole, he did a fine job himself; scoreless inning, 2 K’s. Neat note from MASN; since 1900, Koji has the best K/BB ratio for all pitchers with at least 150 IP – his (now) 6.6 is way, way ahead of second place (5.4).
  • Derrek Lee went 2-3 with an opposite-field homer, a double, plus a walk.
  • Mark Reynolds hit a bomb of his own.

The Bad:

  • The O’s K’ed 11 times with only 2 free passes.
  • Kevin Gregg didn’t blow the save, though he tried; a run on two doubles and a walk.

The Final:

The O’s take game one of the series in New York. Hopefully they follow it up with an organizational victory by picking up some prospects before the trade deadline.
