Tuesday Bird Droppings

July 16, 2012; Minneapolis, MN, USA; Baltimore Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman (30) is removed from the game by manager Buck Showalter (26) during the first inning against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.

Good morning. I apologize for the lack of recap for last night's game, but when the game starts at 8 p.m. and two hours later is not only a blood bath but also just in the third inning, sometimes that happens. I was just too exhausted when it ended at 11:30 to deal with a 19-7 loss. I had plans to do it, but the inning from Jim Johnson broke me. I do have to commend Endy Chavez for his FUHR in the 9th inning, though. Here are a few recaps in case you just have to read about last night's disaster:
