The O’s hung on for a 7-6 win Sunday at Boston.
Cla Meredith got the final two outs to record the save after 271 career appearances without a save.
I would use him in a save situation on Tuesday. Not kidding, he did the job for one day and with this bullpen right now that qualifies him to get a second day.
On the upside, the O’s offense has started to hit.
The offense produced 13 runs on 31 hits the past two games. The O’s hit .331 as team (40 for 121) in the Boston series and they have picked up nine hits or more in six of the last eight games.
The O’s today rallied from 4-1 down after six. Miguel Tejada’s two-run homer in the 7th was huge to tie and Rhyne Hughes gave them the lead with an RBI single in the 10th followed by Matt Wieters’ two-run single.
The O’s have three wins on the year. Two of them were down to the wire nerve rackers. Nothing comes easy right now.
