In case Brian Matusz doesn’t recognize what just happened, the Orioles scored a run for him.
Matusz will try to protect a 1-0 lead as we enter the bottom of the fourth inning, and hope that the Orioles’ generosity will extend a little further.
Miguel Tejada, Nick Markakis and Ty Wigginton opened the top of the fourth with singles that produced a 1-0 lead.
Markakis is 2-for-2 and hasn’t been retired since he vented about the club’s offensive approach, among other things, to The Sun.
Did he notice that Matt Wieters swung at the first pitch with one out and grounded into a 5-4-3 double play?
Wieters is 3-for-28 with one RBI in his last nine games, including tonight.
