Jeremy Guthrie: Comeback Pitcher of the Night

Do they hand out an award like that one?

Guthrie recorded the first two outs in the first inning before a walk, hit batter and single put him in a 1-0 hole.

I had my doubts about him. The night had the potential to become a long one.

Shows what I know.

Jhonny Peralta’s run-scoring single is the only hit off Guthrie through six innings. He’s walked one and struck out four. He’s also rubbing a little salt in the wounds of an organization that drafted him in the first round and let him go.

Guthrie’s thrown 79 pitches, and the Orioles have given him a 6-1 lead with one out in the bottom of the sixth.

Luke Scott singled again and drove in the fifth run.

In case you hadn’t noticed, he’s caught fire again.

Tonight’s attendance: 25,902.

It’s Fireworks Night. The Orioles got started a little early.
