Orioles 10, Rangers 9: Messing with Texas not as bad as reported

George Sherrill almost never makes it easy, but after a tightrope act in the ninth inning, Sherrill and the O's held on to their 10-9 lead in Arlington to improve to 5-2 on the season.

The Good

Aubrey Huff was 4-for-5 with three steaks. Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with a walk, two RBIs, three runs scored, and a potential game-saving catch in the bottom of the ninth inning on a rocket to the wall hit by Michael Young, after Ian Kinsler had led off the inning with a double. Walker, Johnson and Sherrill combined to close out the final two innings with no runs allowed, though Sherrill as always made it interesting. Felix Pie was 3-for-4 with a homer. The new road uniforms looked great.

The Bad

Koji Uehara was roughed up pretty good: 5 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 4 BB, 3 K. On the plus side, that beats Chien-Ming Wang (1 IP, 8 ER) tonight, and the fact that the Yankees are paying $200 million for their team and Nick Swisher pitched tonight.

The Ugly

Nothing out of the ordinary, though watching the team do everything but flat-out squander a 10-4 lead was pretty tough.

We'll do it all again tomorrow.
