Finally! Something good to write about. Here's the summary.

The first scoring came in the third inning, when the O's bats finally woke up. Newhan started the scoring with a single to center, which brought home Jeff Conine. It didn't stop there, as Gibbons got an RBI infield single, bringing home Newhan, which was followed by a Ramon Hernandez single to center, scoring 2(Mora and Tejada). It was all quiet until the 5th inning, when Gibby hit a HR to right, which madre the score 5-0. The next inning Erik continued his dominance, getting a DP after giving up a single, and then ending the inning with a K(his 5th and final). In the 6th Nick the Greek and B-Rob got back to back hits, but the O's couldn't get any runs out of it, keeping the score at 5-0. The next inning looked like it would be another one where the O's rolled 1-2-3, until Newhan dropped an extremely high fly ball, and a passed ball got a runner on third with 2 outs. All scoring chances were shut down for that inning, though, when a grounder back to the mound ended the inning. In the bottom of the 7th, it really got interesting. Ty Wiggington started it off with a single. Travis Lee popped out, but that was followed by another single by Toby Hall, making it 1st and 3rd with one out. Nick Green then grounded back to Bedard(happened several times tonight) and he cut off Wiggington going home. With 2 outs and 1st and second, Jorge Cantu(previously injured) lined out sharply to Melvin Mora, ending the inning. That was the end of Bedard's night, and here's the line:
7 IP, 0 ER, 5 K's, 4 hits, 2 BB's
Great line for Erik, much better than last weeks. After the O's went 1-2-3 in the top of the 8th, the Rays got another run chance. The Rays started the inning with a walk, to the speedy Carl Crawford. After a K for Hawkins(the new pitcher) and a fly out, Aubrey Huff tripled off the wall to make the score 5-1. That would be all they got that inning. In the top of the 9th, the O's got that run back. After Roberts and Newhan were retired, Melvin got a 2-out single to Center, and Miggy followed it up with an RBI double. Gibby, then, ended the inning with a fly out. Tim Byrdak came in to pitch the 9th, and he didn't start out well. Travis Lee began the inning with a ground ball double down the right field line, and Toby Hall followed it up with a 2-run homer. 6-3 Bawmer. The O's then brought in the automatic Chris Ray, and he started the inning by getting a K. He then followed that one up with another one, but that was where the strikeout streak ended. Carl Crawford, then, got a single up the middle. Next up was Joey Gathright. Strike one. Strike two. Strike three. Save #2 for Ray, and win #3 for the O's.

Tomorrow night we get revenge on Hendrickson, who is facing Benson.

Go O's! Sweeeeeeep the Rays!
