The Baltimore Orioles had difficulty generating offense for starter Jeremy Guthrie, which was nothing unusual. The extent of Baltimore’s struggle at the plate on Saturday, however, was historic.
Jeremy Guthrie pitched well enough against the Minnesota Twins to brag about his performance. Instead, the Baltimore Orioles right-hander ended up talking about his shortcomings, and an even better outing by the opposing pitcher, following a 3-1 loss Thursday night.
The O’s ran into a really good Texas Rangers team at Camden Yards this weekend.
Jeremy Guthrie knew it was going to be a struggle. Not only was the Baltimore Orioles right-hander recovering from a high fever that forced him to spend two nights in the hospital, but he was facing the high-powered Texas Rangers.
The Baltimore Orioles optioned right-hander Brad Bergesen to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday and selected the contract of pitcher Chris Jakubauskas, who could start Sunday against Texas.
I’m sure most of you are still feeling the excitement from Monday’s festivities at Camden Yards. I hope everyone in Baltimore had a happy and safe Opening Day. What a perfect day for baseball and a perfect way to start off the season with an undefeated 4-0 record. Thank you all for coming over to Pickles Pub to listen to the Post Game Show with Bob Haynie, Joe Orsulak and myself. What a scene that was!
Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was hospitalized Monday with a high fever that will force him to miss his scheduled start Wednesday against the Detroit Tigers.
Rookie Zach Britton did his part to help Baltimore start the new season with three consecutive wins. Britton pitched six sharp innings in his major league debut, J.J. Hardy hit a two-run double and Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Sunday to complete a season-opening three-game sweep.
Jeremy Guthrie will start opening night in Tampa Bay against the Rays. Followed by Brian Matusz, and Chris Tillman. Bring on Friday night!!
The Baltimore Orioles’ rotation is beginning to take shape, starting at the top with right-hander
Ryan Howard and Raul Ibanez each homered and drove in three runs, while Shane Victorino had two hits and scored three times to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 13-6 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.
Right-hander Jeremy Guthrie and the Baltimore Orioles agreed Friday to a $5.75 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.
