I’m speculating about the last part because the Orioles haven’t announced it, but Brad Bergesen is no longer an option to start Tuesday night because he replaced Alfredo Simon today, and Jo-Jo Reyes is leaning against the dugout railing.
Reyes isn’t an option to pitch in relief today or he’d be, you know, sitting in the bullpen.
Simon gave up six runs (four earned) and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings. He didn’t walk a batter, struck out three and served up Brett Lawrie’s first major league home run.
Lawrie’s 403-foot blast to right-center field ended Simon’s day.
The Orioles have one run - on Mark Reynolds’ 25th homer - and two hits in six innings against Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero.
Is this team ever going to win another series?
Today’s game isn’t over yet, but the Orioles are down by five and Romero is dealing.
