O's-Yankees, Poor Jeremy

I'll keep this one quick, as I'm pretty tired (going 0-3 with a K while your softball team loses 21-1 and then someotherbignumber-0 will do that to you).

The third game of the O's-Yankees series went about as expected.

Jeremy Guthrie pitched pretty well (7 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 4 K) but got no run support (2, on a homer by Melvin Mora). Jason Johnson pitched a scoreless inning in relief, but was lifted in favor of Jamie Walker with some lefties coming up. Walker, as has been the case all year, was largely ineffective (a run on two walks and two hits in 2/3 of an inning).

Andy Pettitte (23-6, 3.77 ERA career vs. the Birds before this game) pitched like Andy Pettitte does against the Birds - 6.2 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K. Joba K'ed 3 in 1.1 IP, and Mo pitched a perfect ninth for the save.

The O's drop the game 4-2, but still end up taking the series. They are now 26-26 and to split the first two games of their four-game series with Boston to end May at .500.
