Tampa Tops O's Twice in Doubleheader

It was a long day for the Orioles and their fans...the Birds fell 5-2 in Game 1 and then again 7-5 in Game 2 on Tuesday. After nearly seven hours of baseball, the Birds bullpen (Jamie Walker) imploded and sent any and every O's fan still in attendance home with a severe case of "WHY!!"

The O's were up 2-0 in Game 1 before the tragic fifth inning...need I say more? Worse yet was Game 2...the Birds sent Alfredo Simon to the mound for his first big league start...Simon left in the eighth with a 5-3 lead...enter Jamie Walker (my personal hero this season, he's just pitched so well!). Walker came in with the daunting opportunity to record ONE OUT, and was unable to do so...he allowed four runs on three hits, a walk, and two wild pitches...if he's still around in 2009 he better be wearing a Seattle Mariners uniform.

That's it for me...the O's play one more against Tampa tomorrow night before the Blue Jays come to town...
