O’s rookie pitcher, David Hernandez got alot of support in Angel Stadium last night. The crowd even chanted, “Lets go David!” Hernandez was a native of California, and had a lot of friends and family in attendance to root him on.
The O’s scored five runs in the first two times through the batting order, spotting Hernandez the lead and giving him something to work with. That was all he had needed, as Hernandez only gave up one run in five innings. “Oh I could here them,” said Hernandez. “There are alot of people in Oakland when I pitched there, but there were even more people here to root me on.”
Hernandez pitched two perfect innings on Friday, as he pitched around two singles in the third and left runners stranded in the fourth as well. Hernandez pitched into the seventh inning before coming out of the game. He had a very good outing.
Manager Dave Trembley commented saying, “He just never stopped throwing strikes. He just kept repeating his delivery and commanding his fastball.” Trembley really loved the way Hernandez changed the speeds on his breaking ball though. He thought that was very hard to catch on to.
Here are the reason’s for one
To be in the
Is it just me, or do any other O’s fans out there wanna just rip Trembley’s head off?
The O’s can never be consistant! I just have to blame that on Dave Trembley. I think that the O’s pitching is pretty decent. They have some good prospects coming out of the farm and I think they should give them the call up to the MLB for a few outings. Bergesen has been good. Very good.
If all of the O’s pitching could be like Brad Bergesen there would be no problem. But, most of the starting rotation is shaky, and the bullpen… Lord knows! And the O’s offense, wow. Brian Roberts is in one of the biggest slumps in his career, and he struck out twice last night, which he rarely does.
The thing that really makes me ticked is that Trembley is having a good old time in the dugout each game and doesn’t ever make a change about the O’s offense.
If he doesn’t turn the O’s around soon, they will find someone who will. My suggestion is
1. Talk to your guys, tell em’ to start playing a little harder.
2. Get Brian Roberts, (Your Leader) to get back to the way he normally is.
3. Get the pitching started up so that will trigger the Offense.
4. Finally, please take more action!
What a weiner.
C’mon O’s! Let’s start winning some games! Thanks for your time! Please comment. 🙂 and remember to watch tonight’s game vs. LA!
The Orioles offense was blistering Thursday night scoring two runs against the Angles. One off of Matt Wieters RBI single, and another off of Luke Scott’s 16 HR of the year.
On the other side, Jeremy Guthrie pitched pretty well except for giving up two HR’s to Bobby Abreu, a solo shot in the fourth, and a three run shot in the fifth.
C’mon O’s wake up! You got to get the offense going. The pitching is getting there. You just have got to get the wheels turning! We are almost there.
In other news, Melvin Mora asked for a day off yesterday night as his homerless games streak is at 43. I think he is down and out right now. He needs to just go back to the basics… He needs to see the ball better and pick better pitches to hit.
With Uehara out, the O’s want to possibly bring up prospect Chris Tillman who is currently playing in the triple-a international all star game.
Luke Scott is on a role now, bumping his HR total up to 16 now. He is leading the team in HR’s. Maybe if all the Orioles would just hit like him, they would win a few games?
Well what more can I say, Brian Roberts looks like he is still slumping as he looks like he is throwing the towel in. Roberts went 0-4 last night, and watched a fastball in an 0-2 count go right down the middle for strike three.
Tuesday night at Oriole Park in Camden Yards. Dave Trembley commented on the win saying,
“That was just tremendous. It was by far the best game I have been involved in.”
With the O’s down and their starters out, the first O’s hitters of the seventh inning made it an eight run deficit, (score was 10-1 before). Oscar Salazar then came to the plate and mashed a three run home run making the score 10-6 by the end of the inning.
The eighth inning, the O’s struck again, when the first three O’s batters got singles off of Hideki Okajima. Next, rookie Matt Wieters came up to the dish and singled home starting LF Nolan Reimold. Score now 10-7, Ty Wiggington hit a sac fly to make it 10-8 Red Sox. Brian Roberts, who was slumping knocked a single down the third base line, scoring another run making it 10-9 Red Sox. After Felix Pie came up and struck out, it was Nick Markakis. Markakis got a great pitch, and sent it into the left center field gap, bringing home two runs, and giving the O’s the lead.
George Sherrill got to close it out for the O’s, who almost lost it. But retired the side. He gave up a single to the leadoff Sox hitter. Then set down Lugo and Pedroia before beaning Youkillis who had an HR earlier in the game. With runners on first and second, Sherrill struck out Bay, and the O’s went nuts! Sherrill got his 17 save of the year, while the O’s came onto the field to celebrate! And can I say what a win it was for the O’s. That was very exciting and now I believe. Until next time…. GO O’s!!!! 🙂
Adam Jones sprinted to the center field wall in anticipation to catch Kevin “Youk” Youkillis’ home run ball, but instead he hit the wall full force and had the wind knocked out of him. Jones stayed in the game for the second inning until Orioles skipper Dave Trembley pulled him for precautions, with the Sox already winning 4-0. Felix Pie was put in to fill his spot and almost immediately contributed with an RBI triple in the bottom of the third. Although Jones was okay. the Orioles aren’t.
C’mon people out there. We need you all to vote for the Orioles duo, (Markakis and Jones) to get into the All Star Game. They are almost the same in every category, and in fantasy they are one point apart. So why not vote Orange? Brian Roberts needs a push too, but he will most likely not get it due to the fact Pedroia is all publicity now…. So we need all of you to get at least one, yes one O in the All Star Game (ASG).
