Yankees 7, Orioles 4: Yes, Adam, you do stink.

Adam Eaton Sucks

 Adam Eaton's final line: 4.2 IP, 7 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 2 HR. His ERA on the season is now 8.56. If Adam Eaton makes another start for the Orioles I'll be shocked. That's all I'm going to say about Adam Eaton, because it's obvious to everyone that he's the worst pitcher in the universe.

It's hard to be mad about this game. I've been mad about a lot of games this season, but seriously, what are you gonna do? Everyone knew what was going to happen, pitching-wise. Actually, a few good things happened tonight.

  • After going hitless his last three games, Nick Markakis had three hits including a home run.
  • Ty Wigginton came off the bench and went 2-2 with two doubles and 2 RBI. I'm certainly not convinced that he's going to start being worth something, but it was nice to not have to hate him for a night.
  • It seems like every game lately there are multiple defensive miscues, but this night I can't even count one. Felix Pie made all of his catches without flailing, Aubrey Huff cut off a throw from Adam Jones to catch Melky Cabrera trying to sneak to third, even a snazzy play by Wiggy as he played SS for the first time.
  • Likewise, the O's didn't make any boneheaded plays on the bases. It was refreshing. Sure, they left 9 guys on base, but there's a big difference between that and their normal miscues.

This series sucked. No doubt about it. But the O's finally get to play a team more matched to their talents as they head down to DC this weekend to play the Nats. Pitching this weekend: Rich Hill, KOJI, and Brad Bergesen. I feel, dare I say it, optimistic?
