O's 8, Red Sox 4: Two in a row

The Orioles defeated the Red Sox today using a lineup of mostly non-regulars and six pitchers including starters Brad Bergesen and Chris Tillman.

O's hitters beat up on Tim Wakefield, getting to him for 5 runs and 9 hits in 3.2 innings. They also greeted their old friend Hideki Okajima with a couple hits and a run.

Hitting stars were Luke Scott who went 2-4 with a sacrifice fly, a double, and a three RBI home run, and Brandon Snyder who also had a double and a home run. Jonathan Tucker, Justin Turner, Lou Montanez, Rhyne Hughes, and Pedro Florimon each had two hit games as well.

Brad Bergesen started the game and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits in 2.2 innings. Both runs came on a David Ortiz HR in the third. Bergesen got into a jam in the first inning, allowing two singles and walk to load the bases with two outs, but he got out of it. Bergesen threw 21 pitches in the first inning, 9 in the second, and 11 in the third before leaving with two outs. Check out Roch's blog for 3E1N's thoughts on his outing.

Chris Tillman, the other pitcher to allow runs, gave up 2 on 4 hits and 3 walks in 2.2 innings. Like Bergesen, Tillman allowed his runs on a HR, this one by Josh Reddick. Tillman said he felt a little uncomfortable coming out of the bullpen because he couldn't go through his routine but he was pleased at his ability to pitch inside early in the count, something he didn't do last year.

Also appearing for the Orioles on the mound and turning in scoreless outings were Cla Meredith, Frank Mata, Mark Hendrickson, and Ross Wolf.

The Orioles travel to Fort Myers tomorrow to play the Twins. The game will be broadcast by the Twins radio network on KSTP-1500, Gameday Audio, and XM176. Maybe we'll get to hear some more about that shell museum.
