A's top O's 4-2

Same early season story: Decent pitching, very little offense. With the loss, the Orioles are now 1-10.

Kevin Millwood threw 115 pitches in six innings and gave up nine hits. But he only allowed three earned runs and struck out an impressive nine batters while walking none. Will Ohman and Matt Albers each pitched a scoreless inning in relief.

Ty Wigginton, who hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning, was responsible for the O's only runs. Nick Markakis also went 2-4 with two doubles, raising his average to .243. Adam Jones, Miguel Tejada, Matt Wieters, and Luke Scott went a combined 0-15 in the game. The O's were also 0-4 with runners in scoring position and grounded into two double plays.

Tomorrow, Jeremy Guthrie faces Justin Duchscherer at 4:05. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the game will not be televised.
