Kevin Millwood has taken the mound for the top of the seventh inning, and he’s showing no signs of surrendering the lead or the ball.
Millwood’s thrown only 61 pitches, 42 for strikes.
One strike he’d like back is the long home run by Alex Gonzalez in the fourth inning.
Millwood has held the Blue Jays to three hits, but the Orioles have left seven runners on base and cling to a 2-1 lead.
We’re debating who’s going to pitch the ninth in a save situation. We know it won’t be Mike Gonzalez.
Update: Make that 70 pitches and 46 strikes as we head to the bottom of the seventh. Millwood is really on his game today. Keep him on the mound and let him finish what he started.
The Orioles are 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position today, so Millwood can’t count on an insurance run.
