Tonight's game was intruptd by two rain delays. It would have been better had it just kept raining. Chris Tillman and Brandon Workman were on the mound. Two men entered, One man left. Workman was relieved having only allowed a walk to Nelson Cruz and a hit by Ryan Flaherty. Cruz may not have really seen four balls, but he made up for that umpiring issue by wandering off first base on a pop up to be doubled off.
Chris Tillman continued to look pretty bad, but he did weather both rain delays and completed six innings miraculously allowing only one run. It was enough for him to take the loss.
Final Line: 6 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, Loss
Ryan Webb was superb for an inning and Brian Matusz pitched two innings, using his defense. At the fense
Ryan Flaherty singled off Workman and Steve Peace singled off Koji Uehara in the ninth.
Defensive Highlights/ Lowlights
Manny Machado made several good plays. He is appealing his five game suspension for flinging a bat.
Key Moments In The Game
The Orioles did not hit. The Red Sox scored a run and made it stand. Koji Uehara allowed a lead off single and made the next three batters look foolish. He even made up for an error by his catcher on a foul pop.
