Michael Gonzalez tossed another scoreless inning today, getting a dazzling double play to end the eighth inning.
Reid Brignac singled with one out, but John Jaso grounded into a 6-4-3 DP. Cesar Izturis ranged up the middle and flipped the ball to Brian Roberts, who snatched it with his bare hand and threw to first base.
Gonzalez hasn’t allowed a run in his last five outings covering 5 1/3 innings. He’s given up three hits, walked none and struck out seven, and his ERA has gone down from 13.50 to 6.75.
The Orioles have drawn 18 walks in this series. Only two runners have scored.
Down on the farm, J.J. Hardy is 0-for-4 with Triple-A Norfolk. He’s popped up, struck out and grounded out twice.
Happy Mothers Day, Mom.
Happy Birthday, Dad.
Did you plan for these two occasions to fall on the same day, or was it random?
