The much vaunted Oriole lineup will consecutively send to the plate Clevenger, Schoop, Flaherty, Lombardozzi, Markakis and his disappearing power act, and Lough. Anibal Sanchez is probably praying for rain

Davis gives us an early lead and Gonzalez works overtime to give it right back.

Miguel was VERY lucky to get out of that inning behind by just one.

This is game four of the season and we have yet to have a well pitched start. Yeah, Tillman won on Monday, but he was far from effective. I'm not sure I remember ANY of our rotation having an effective start the last two weeks of ST.

Half way decent bounce back inning for Gonzalez aided big time by a very nice throw from Lough. That bottom half of the second was almost 20 mins long

Gonzalez probably felt like it was 20 YEARS!

The rain delay may actually be a break for us. Buck will almost have to bring in Stinson when (if) the game resumes.

After the game reply: I would have tried to have kept Gonzalez in the game. This team is already on a poor trend of relievers wracking up IP that will likely cost us later. I know it's early in the season, but thus far we are seeing the same thing we always see. Oriole starting pitchers that cannot get through innings efficiently.
