Two game recaps here, even though one of the games isn’t over yet.
The Orioles beat the White Sox 6-2 this evening. Tillman went five innings and gave up six hits, allowing only one run. However, no strikeouts occurred during that span. The pitching star of the game, though, was Michael Gonzalez. Seriously. I’m not joking here, he looked excellent. Andino provided quite a bit of offense, including a homer, as well. If you’re not on Team Robert Andino, this might be a good time to join it. He’s trying to follow in the footsteps of Jed Lowrie and is attempting to take over the starting shortstop job now that J.J. Hardy is on the DL.
Hardy and Matusz are both on the mend and should return in May, though. Thank God, especially for the latter.
Secondly, keep an eye on Bowie. As I write this, the Baysox are in the top of the 18th against Richmond. They tied the game up in the bottom of the ninth and both teams have pitched eight scoreless since. Now go and win it, boys!
