practice and working but not skooching down yet or running. so a runner on, 6-3 oriole lead, bottom of the #th inning, ramos, and harris is 0-2. 1-0 count. jeremy guthrie, a lot of pitches early in the ball game. interesting to see how far dave trembley will go with him. he's been over the 100 pitch count three times in the starts this year. 2-0. >> mike: start to see a little movement in the oriole bull pen. >> gary: just in case time now for the pen. and misses with that and falls

base over the last eight games or so. no look back, you can tell straight steal. >> gary: 3-3 on the year. i'm sorry, 2-4. right center field, span coming, he's got it. >> eddie: lugo played great right there. great positioning. >> gary: hit the ball hard. key to today's game if you are one of the hitters, do not hit the ball hard. if you will bloop it off the end of the batter, you will get the base hit. >> eddie: tejada may still have the hardest hit ball today. >> mike: and he's 0-4. . >> gary: jones a single, 1-4, 1-8 in the series.

>> gary: uehara in the bull pen. great job has been done here so far with bergesen, of course, combining with ohman or uehara or simone for the shut out. that will be fouled away and will ohman gets ahead on the count, 1-2. >> mike: but the oriole staff has done so well in this short two-game series so far. they stopped the walks. the twins had just been walking at an as astronomical pace. >> gary: here's the 2-2
delivery to hudson. and ohman goes full. three balls, two strikes. orioles also in this game have added his. another one in the 8th. that ball's a base hit. 3-3 '2 single by -- 3-2 single by hudson. >> mike: that's a pretty good afternoon, 3rd base hit, two singles, triple and now he short strokes it. >> eddie: the twins found them one there late before spring training there. >> gary: morneau in the middle of the order against will ohman.
or noto off the mask of wieters. that one brought him to his knees or off the shoulder. >> mike: the pounding a catcher will take over the course of the season, it's amazing. top of the shoulder. stretching it around. >> gary: home plate umpire going out to the mound to give wieters a chance. >> mike: if that happened to an infielder got hit in the shoulderer, there would be three trainers and a medic on the field with a defib fib fibullator. >> gary: morneau's home run -- the orioles have scattered their
offense up and down the line-up. hudson at 1st base. 0-2 delivery, morneau. pops it up. 3rd base. foul territory, one away. >> eddie: he's having some fun down here with the fans. it was coming out of the glove there. >> gary: one down. you're close enough this this ballpark, there will be some discussion with the fans. >> . >> eddie: i never talked to the
fans during a game. just like they could tell he almost dropped that one, they know when i almost caught one. >> gary: the shift is on. light rain falling. thome completely fooled on that pitch. 0-2. he was guessing something else. ohman trying to work his way through the inning here. there's the 0-2 delivery, thome will take it outside. and ohman's been good enough against both right and left handers to gain the confidence of staying in for longer than
just a specialty thing of getting one out. >> mike: he's not allowed an earned run in 15 appearances. that's the most among american league releaves without allowing a run. >> eddie: i'm watching tejada standing at shortstop hoping he doesn't get a flash back, just stand there and watch that runner go from 2nd to 3rd. >> gary: big shift is on, birds are flying around, tejada is taking notice. and just missed inside. >> mike: that used to be at the metrodome you had to worry about the ceiling and today it's more the light rain and the birds. >> gary: there's the 2-2
delivery. we had fun with the bird that sits up on the foul ball at night, and we would joke about it and it made all kinds of national reruns so someone from our great crew brought in from a bird book the pictures and stories about that bird and that's why i said -- there's the bird right there. so it's a falco spervious. >> eddie: i really wanted to know that. >> gary: how about that double play! that is a five-six-three double play as the shift against thome worked perfectly. the orioles lead it 7-3.
. >> gary: orioles trying it make it two in a row against the twins. 7-12-0, the twins 3-6-0 trying to beat liriano the start who are gave up five runs, 12 hits over six, by far his worst of the year. jeremy guthrie to pick up his first win if the orioles can maintain. tejada's had an 0-4, maybe his
last chance to extend his 7-game hit streak. up and away for a ball. mahay's delivery will be taken outside. tejada with a .391 average against left handers. and he gets one here in the 9th inning. and takes it to right field near the warning track. cuddyer is there. one down, 9th inning. >> mike: creative headgear. seemsz like if it's over the outfielders' heads it's a home
run. you don't see any deep fly balls. you get it all or you miss hit it the way it's played here. >> gary: yes. one down, here's ty wigginton. wigginton an rbi double came in the 7th inning. he's the designated hitner this ball game. lugo's got an rbi, wigginton with a couple, izturis an rbi. ty wigginton against the lefties, .286. he's had just one home run off left handers so far. and we'll take that away. >> mike: mahay start -- >> eddie: mahay starting this inning off trying not to give the hitters anything. >> gary: that's your best
chance, the ball down the line here. power alley to power alley the word is it plays very big. wigginton, morneau, hudson, all give chase. nobody gets there. including cuddyer. they've gotten up to 48 degrees apparently this afternoon. bull pen active fortunate orioles. not a save situation. uehara has been throwing in the bull pen, stays loose. he may be coming out to finish it up.
dave trembley said simone is the closer but he doesn't think he could use him in back to back situations, that's why he's happy to have koji uehara back and i would not hesitate to use him him in a closing role. wigginton to center. span. >> mike: pretty good numbers out of the orioles bull pen. earned run for nine innings, one save in the last five. starters go deeper in the ball game, that's the delight of the effect it has. the bull pen settles in to be predictable when they would be used. >> gary: matt wieters doubled and scored in the 4th inning. he's 1-4 in the ball game.
mahay with two down, nobody on. matt, .273 right-handed, .279 left-handed. four home runs, three of them hit from the left side. mahay is away with that one. 2-1. tell you about matt's home runs, he said 13 in his major league career now, nine left-handed, four right-handed. the other way, foul. eight of the twelve have been hit the opposite field. and most of that coming from the other side of the plate. five opposite field blasts when he's batting left-handed. 12346 like i said, that's really a good indication when a kid couple times up and hits the ball the other way, you can
teach him. he'll get more comfortable with swings and throwing that ball later on. >> gary: mahay gets the strikeout, the orioles three outs away from getting the win. we good to the bottom of the 9th. m-bohm ♪ ♪ bohm-bohm, bohm-bohm, bohm-bohm ♪ ♪ bohm, bohm-bohm-bohm-bohm ♪ bohm-bohm, bohm-bohm, bohm-bohm, bohm ♪ ♪ if you want a revolution, the only solution, evolve ♪ ♪ you gotta evolve ♪ if you want a revolution, the only solution, evolve ♪ ♪ you gotta evolve ♪ if you're getting off track and you want to get back ♪ ♪ may take a lot of work, gonna break your back ♪ ♪ if you want a revolution, the only solution, evolve ♪ ♪ you gotta evolve ♪ no matter what they do, they can't break your stride ♪ ♪ evolution is a thing that starts inside ♪ ♪ throw your hands up, pat your friends with pride ♪ ♪ hold your head high, no need to hide ♪ ♪ e-v-o-l-v-e ♪ come on, get inside, come and ride with me ♪ ♪ if you want a revolution, the only solution, evolve ♪

jeremy guthrie, nick markakis, izturis. >> mike: the second game of the series and pretty well long road back from koji. had been a closer in japan a couple years back. just trying to get back and give dave trembley three outs right here. he had a clean inning in the 8th a day or so ago. seemed a long time ago. >> gary: here we go, bottom of the 9th inning. uehara gets the fly ball up. nick markakis, one pitch and one out in the bottom of the 9th. cuddyer with 1-4 and you home run.
koji uehara will have kubel and ramos up. jeremy guthrie, three runs, five hits, six and two thirds, could be the winner. will ohman worked an inning and a third, gave up just one hit. liriano would be the loser in this score holds. >> eddie: he continues to struggle but he will wake up. i just hope the orioles are out of town. >> gary: hitting only .200 as he stands in right now and had an 0-3 in the ball game. he and delmon young are tune platooning a bit in left field. pitch is away. >> eddie: had a lot of big hits for this minnesota squad last year. >> gary: 1-2. jason kubel got jammed.
>> mike: they went through some bats today. check with jimmy kyler, who's on the trip, orioles clubhouse man. >> gary: left center field, reimold, kubel picks up the base hit here in the 9th with one down. >> mike: it's the third hit on the oriole staff since the 3rd inning or the 4th inning with the lead off homer by cuddyer. >> eddie: tried to come in that time but got his hands inside that one a little better. >> gary: wilson ramos who got hit by a pitch on the wrist area obviously has stayed in the ball game, good news for the twins. he's 0-2. 1-6 in the two games. a little sunshine coming back through again. strike on the outside corn frer
uehara. koji uehara as dave trembley says keeps hitters off balance. he has a wide assortment of pitches. very hard to get the timing on him. that one reimold will back up on a bit. he's got it. two down. >> eddie: trying to make the appearance back in. >> gary: the orioles one out away from beating the twins for the second time. they shut them out 2-0 in the first game two nights ago and now trying to take the front end of this day of in night double header. brandon harris takes the pitch for a strike. harris has had an 0-3.
francisco liriano came in the game with -- strike taken. jeremy guthrie you know is ready to breathe. he had a personal eight-game losing streak, 0-4 this year. swung on and missed, koji uehara wraps it up and this one is in the books for the o's. and an impressive performance all around. no runs, one hit, no errors and one left. the orioles have taken two in a row. this win this one 7-3. a little celebration that will make the between-game meals that much more enjoyable. there's your final line-up
there. good attack, seven runs on 12 hits in the ball game, 3, 7 and 0 for the twins. guthrie gets the win 1-4. liriano is the loser, he's 4-1. there was no save in this ball game asellout of 38,608 on hand. the orioles left eight, minnesota stranded five. the orioles came in 0-18 with runners in scoring position. and went exactly the other way in those situations in this game. >> mike: every statistic we talked about this afternoon did not take effect 12346 runners in scoring position, bingo. >> gary: let's check in with one of those big offensive bats. >> the orioles able to take the first two games. do you all feel as if right now you need to force teams to respect you and is that exactly what you're doing with these wins? >> absolutely. guys are starting to swing the
bat. we knew it was going to come around, we just didn't know when. it's coming along good and hopefully we continue it, our pitches are doing great. >> your bats were able to get out against liriano early. what did you see from him today that was maybe different that you were able to take advantage of. >> when you have those kind of approaches and those kinds of bats in those situations in the game it makes things a lot easier. you win ball games that early. >> jeremy guthrie has given you guys a few quality starts this year, how good was it to give him some run support? >> it was good. we struggled to give him support early on and he had one wad outing and all -- one bad outing and all his other starts were good. >> enjoy this one and then game 2. >> thank you. >> gary: that's going to do it
for this day portion of our day-night. our second ball game coming up tonight, 7:30 o's xtra followed by game coverage at 8 on masn hd. i'm gary thorne, bid you adieu for the moment anyway. our final in this one, orioles win it 7-3. this has been a masn presentation. o's xtra, jim and rick coming up right now. . hi again, everybody, jim hunter and rick dempsey with o's xtra postgame. so we have the reverse lot going today. this was supposed to be a minnesota walkaway, 4-0 liriano, 0-4 jeremy guthrie, wait a minute it was a lock except it was guthrie's lock. >> finally jeremy guthrie got a little bit of breathing room. he gives up a two-run home run
early in the ball game. but the o's second time through the -- around facing liriano, they got eight more hits tacked on to the two they got from the 2nd inning and just a good offensive day. two-out hitting is the way this team got to go. >> game recap as the orioles trail 2-0 when they batted in the top of the 3rd but the bases are loaded and markakis serves it into center field, drives in 2 and ties the game at 2. top of the 4th, two men on, two men down. izturis, talk about a seeing eye single bas the glove -- past the glove, the orioles lead. lugo would come through as he pulls it into left field. that's an rbi base hit and orioles with a 4-3 '2 lead. top of the 7th, now it's 5-3, o's a big hit. ty wigginton with an add-on run.
markakis had walked and stolen 2nd base. the orioles go up 6-3. they would add another and win it by a final of 7-3. seven the nine orioles in the line-up had base hits and four of those seven had multi hit games. so guthrie gets his first hit on the year, liriano suffers his first loss as he is now 4-1 on the season. all of a sudden after leaving new york, they go in minnesota with a 2-0 game on thursday night and unexpected day off yesterday, but they pick it right up. >> bergesen yesterday set the tempo. the guy threw nothing but sinkers for strikes all night long. guthrie gave up sun solo -- one solo run but he comes right back and got outs right away. usually the orioles pitching staff has given up runs. as soon as they score, they give the run right back.
but it looks like a whole different form at and i like what i see today. today was only the second time in the past 11 games the orioles have scored at least six runs. what a difference it makes for a pitcher when he can calm down a little bit because he has run support. >> always a lot of pressure on jeremy guthrie. the team does not play well defensively behind him. as they don't for a lot of the oriole starting pitchers but today was entirely different t looks like the mind set is just to relax now. not as much hype was there was in new york and they're all very relaxed. >> the orioles win it by a final of 7-3. they have won back to back games. i feel guilty as we throw back to gary and eddie, 72 and sunny here in baltimore and wait a minute, i'm over t i'm not guilty anymore. garry. >> gary: well, i'll tell you tonight it's going to be layer night because it will be down
near freezing. but the orioles won't care as long as they continue to play as they did in gim 1 of this day -- game 1 of this day-nighter. >> he started out the day for the orioles by getting the two rbi single there early and tying the game up. that was just a big hit and the guys had fun the rest of the afternoon there. >> some of them weren't exactly big blasts. here's another one that ends up no play. that's an infield hit. that's another rbi. you take them the way they come. >> location, location, location, they hitting them in the right spot. >> look at the 2-4 he had. couple of singles, .319 average, two home runs and 12 rbis on the year. you always need, eddie, one to get going. you need a leader because it is for the often something that spreads. >> you're absolutely right. but a lot of the times it comes from the locker room.
you must somehow have fun in there and joke, get everybody relaxed because this team was struggling with runners in scoring position and it does become a head case for everybody. >> the skipper, dave trembley is joining us here live. skip, an impressive second win. that was all around an outstanding ball game fortunate orioles. >> well, we got some big hits. you know, it wasn't always pretty but we got some big hits. guthrie pitched well, kept the ball down, but zeros up after we scored. our bull pen was solid again. markakis got a big hit, lug o gave us a hit, we found a way to get it done. >> how about jeremy guthrie's performance, skip? >> probably had as good a location as i've seen in a while. he kept the ball down, didn't overthrow. i kept looking up at the radar gun, the velocity wasn't telling me the truth. he had real good movement on all his pitches and you know, stayed
within himself. he gave us a very good game. that's a tough line-up. >> i was wondering, you got some production out of that leadoff spot. you think lugo is going to be in the second game? >> when it's going good, you don't want to change anything. lugo swung the bat pretty good in new york, came up here today and had some good at-bats, used the whole field. we'll see what we got. >> skip, thanks very much. we'll see you in a couple hours. >> all right. >> dave trembley joining us here as the orioles picked up the victory in the first game, seconds one to come up. jim and rick back to you. >> gary, thanks very much. rick i thought it was very nice of you to offer your orioles parka to gary but how are we going to get it to him? >> i got a cold looking at him. >> the orioles hitters didn't seem to mind and the conditions are going to be worse later on tonight. at&t player of the game, jeremy
no matter when you hit the ball. nick markakis with a big swing, bases loaded this drives in two runs. the orioles tie the ball game and they're on their way back. izturis had a very big day for the orioles. base hit up the middle, another run scored. matt wieters on his way. they don't look back. right here another ball into the hole in left field, lugo when had three base hits on the day. you see right there not in a good spot. reimold scores another run and nick markakis again with a base hit up the middle, so way orlando hudson is going to get him right there. they didn't get a hit his first time up. >> this is plagued the orioles all year, runners in scoring position with two men down, first 29 games just 19-10 #. today six out of nine
