A few musings
*Brad Bergesen will be activated for Saturday’s start. But who goes in his place? Tough to say. My guess is Matt Albers, although Albers had a nice 1 1/3 scoreless inning outing against the Yankees last night. He is out of options, so that could be a deciding factor in whether to send him out and risk losing him on waivers. We could know post-game today, or early Saturday.
*In their four wins, the Orioles are 17-for-48 (.354) with runners in scoring position…In their 18 losses, they are batting .133 (17-for-128) with runners in scoring position…When the O’s score four or more runs, they are 4-3, but when scoring fewer than four, they are 0-15.
*The Orioles two runs in the first inning Friday doubled the run support David Hernandez has gotten on the hill in his first four starts. The team has scored 10 runs total, but only two have been while Hernandez is in the game.
