Ty talk

Ty Wigginton met with reporters at his locker after the game. Here are a few quotes to get you through the night:

On Kyle Davies: “He made good pitches. I was underneath them. He’s tough. He’s got a nice little cutter and he did his job.”

On lost opportunities: “We definitely had the opportunities. Garrett (Atkins) had a great at-bat to start that ninth inning, Izzy (Cesar Izturis) gets down the bunt, Corey (Patterson) does his job, they walk Nick (Markakis) and it’s up to me next. I didn’t come through.”

On playing little ball: “At the end of the day, all that matters is if you get an L or a W. Unfortunately, we were on the wrong side of that. We got the L.”

On the nasty conditions: “It really doesn’t matter. The other team has to play in the weather, as well. That really has no bearing on the game.”

On the Orioles going 1-for-12 with RISP: “Miggy (Miguel Tejada) picked me up in the first inning after the strikeout, and you hope things can get rolling. I was able to get him in the next couple times.”

Wigginton drove in two runs, both on ground outs. He also reached on an infield hit in the third inning and has hit safely in eight straight games, batting .406 during the streak.

A few other nuggets:
Corey Patterson’s stolen base in the first inning was the first by the Orioles since May 8 in Minnesota (Izturis). Patterson had the 18th multi-steal game of his career and his first since April 27, 2008 in San Francisco.

Patterson also matched his career high by scoring three runs. He’s done it 12 times.

Luke Scott has reached base safely in eight straight games, batting .419 in that stretch.
