Ok, It's the 5th inning and I'm updating. It's that bad. Daniel had a magnificent line of 1 1/3 innings, 3 hits, 7(yes, 7) walk and 7 runs. Then came Eric Dubose who didn't do much better. He ate 3 2/3 innings, but that is probably the only good thing I can say about him. 8 hits, 3 walks, and 4 runs.

Guess I spoke too soon. No, the O's didn't win, but they made it close. The rally started in the 7th inning when C-Pat, Ramon, and B-Rob all got RBI singles making the score 11-4. Boston then came back and got 3 runs off Brower(who sucks mightily). Those would end up being crucial. The game started to get a little more serious when in the eigth when Gomez had an RBI single followed by a 3-run homer for David "the Hebrew Hammer" Newhan(Note that at least 1 more run would have been scored were it not for a web gem at 1B robbing Corey Patterson of a double). That was as close as the O's would come, though, as Foulke shut them down in the 9th.

The Red Sox scored 14 runs tonight and only 8 of them were on hits. 4 on walks, 1 on a DP, 1 on a sac fly. Take away those 6 and it's a whole new(tie) ball-game. Red Sox hitting highlights include a Trot Nixon 2-run jack and a Manny RBI single.

14 walks tonight. Dang.

Be patient with the starters who pitched in the WBC. I don't think it's a coincidence that the pitchers who went to the WBC(Bedard, Lopez, Daniel) are struggling and the one that didn't(Benson) pitched a great game. Hopefully Benson can pitch well dispite the pattern formed so far.

Go O's.

Schilling vs. Chen tomorrow.
