Orioles 2, Mariners 8
Somewhere, Chip Caray is collecting his unemployment check and screaming “Fistered!” in my direction. Fister took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and Orioles starter Brad Bergesen gave up 7 runs in under 3 innings, which proved to be a tough combination for the now 2-12 Orioles.
Diamondbacks 2, Cardinals 4
Arizona scored 2 runs in the first inning, but could get nothing more. Holliday was 3-for-5 with a 2-run homer and the Cards scored in the 8th and 9th innings off the Arizona bullpen to pull out a 4-2 victory. For those scoring at home, that’s now 5 straight losses for the D’Backs.
Season-to-date: 11-12, +3.06
Runs: 97-103, .407
Today: Arizona might have a shot today with Haren on the mound against left-fielder and cleanup hitter extraordinaire Kyle Lohse. Minnesota is off to a 9-4 start and they start a series with the Indians. Kyle Kendrick is a pretty overrated pitcher coming off a terrible start, but -155 with the Braves is a lot. I’m not sure who is going to take the Astros as a small dog tonight. The Orioles are still 2-12 and playing the Mariners, so that should be an option. Elsewhere, Kansas City, Cincinnati and San Diego all look decent.
