Great Pitching Equals Series Win for the O’s

Posted on May 15, 2011 by Ryan Heller

It all started on Friday when Jeremy Guthrie took the mound for the Baltimore Orioles. He made a good start and kept the Orioles in the game, but got a complete game loss. Just like all the games Guthrie has pitched in he gets no run support and usually loses the game despite giving a great performance.

The Orioles offense has been backing the starting pitching.

For the next 2 games of the series the Orioles starters would get plenty of run support.

In the second game the Orioles would look for Brad Bergesen to give e them a quality outing, he would do that as he pitched a complete game win.

The Orioles offense would explode in this game with 6 runs sparked from an unusual suspect backup catcher Jake Fox, who hit a 2 run homerun that would give the Orioles the 4-0 lead and get them to their magic run total of 4.

This game would set up a rubber match up and a chance for the Orioles to win the series. They would keep their run surge going in the finale.

In the final game of the series, the Orioles would get some good pitching from Jake Arrieta and the offense would help with 9 runs. The Orioles 9 runs were scored with help from everybody in the Orioles line-up.

The Orioles starting pitching has been pitching well for the last 6 games, which the Orioles are 5-1 in them 6 games with a lot of innings thrown. This production from them should keep the bullpen fresh and ready to go.

Look for the Orioles offense to start pouring out runs and for the pitching to stay solid.

The Orioles hope to keep this going, as they take a trip to Fenway to face the Boston Red Sox. It should be a great 2 games, but the Orioles hope to keep themselves in the win column.
