So if you watched the game, you know how it went. If you didn't... you're a better person for it.
Brian Bob did it again... almost single-handedly scoring. He led the game off with a single. followed by an Adam Jones, son! single. Nicky failed to move them along so Brian Bob decided to he'd just take third base. And so he did. Aubrey Huff then grounded out to first base. But the always alert Roberts took that oppurtunity to put the only Orioles run on the board. 1-0, Good Guys. Like I said, the ONLY Orioles run, so that would be it for the offense.
Bergesen started out, um, OK. He got Jeter to ground out right back to him followed by a bloop single by Girly-Arm to center (apparently AJ,S wasn't playing so shallow afterall). After he got Boo! Teixeira to ground out to the Man-Horse himself with Damon moving to second, he decided to throw it beyond the grasp of ZAUN. Afterwhich, A-Roid absolutely slobber-knocked a ball to left center; beyond the bullpens.
There the score stood, 2-1. And there it would stand as Bergesen and Cookie Monster found themselves locked in a pitchers' duel. Bergesen retired 13 in a row after the homerun going to the 6th inning before allowing his next baserunner, a single to Cervelli who was subsequently caught stealing 2nd. After the Roberts score, including Aubrey Huff, CC retired 11 in a row until Peni singled to lead off the 5th.
Into the 7th the game would go with a 2-1. MFY score. Here is where the wheels fell of the bus. I won't go into to detail because it hurts so much. I will tell you that Bergey got who my wife thinks is the ugliest player in baseball, Hideki Matsui, to ground out to the Man-Horse. After that the O's would go through 2 pitchers and allow 7 runs before the next out was recorded. And who do you think was our savior? That's right. Hendo. The Hendmeister. He would come in and put the fire out, retiring Rodriguez and Matsui. Obviously quite a lot happened to allow the atrocities that I witnessed last night, but as I said, it hurts so much.
The rest of the game would go quietly and you see the final result. I guess we all have our health, huh? But that's not much consolation when we could have John Gibbons.
