O's tie series After Very tough loss in Opener at Fenway

Good evening O's fans. It is always better as you know when the O's are in the win column. This was a great bounce back win tonigh after last night's fiasco with Ubaldo being tossed for no reason. I am not going to talk about that because it will just make me angry. The O's got a great bounce back win today 4-1 to even the four game series at one a piece.

The O's needed Tillman to go as deep into the game today as possible with the bullpen needing some rest. He battled through 5 1/3 innings throwing 105 pitches. I thought he was yanked a little early in my opinion. I would have liked to have seen Buck let him get through the sixth. I guess he did not want to stretch his ace too far too early on. He was pulled and Brad Brach came on to finish the sixth and seventh. O'Day pitched the eighth and Britton closed it out. Bullpen was awesome today!!

Chris Davis had a big game today getting 3 hits with a huge opposite field homerun over the monster in the top of the ninth to give the O's some much needed insurance. The O's had chances to blow this game wide open as they had the bases loaded three times against Buckholtz but could not get the big hit and let him off the hook.

On a sour note, Jonathan Schoop will be on the DL with a torn PCL. He will be out at least 8-10 weeks. This could have been from the Sandoval slide last night or when he tripped over Mike Napoli's foot at first base. The Evereth Cabrera signing is now huge. Jimmy Paredes was called up. Maybe he can add some spark to the lineup as he had a great spring.

The O's will send Miguel Gonzales to the hill tomorrow to try to get game 3. He will face Rick Porcello. No easy task tomorrow for O's hitters. Miguel will need to be sharp as he was in his last outing when he struck out 10 Yankees. You heard it From the Booth and let's go O's!!!!
