O's-Astros, Typical Game

Another day, another come-from-behind one-run victory for the Birds. Jeremy Guthrie was once again excellent (8 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 8 K) but didn't get much help from the offense. A solo home run by Luke Scott is all they managed against Brian Moehler (really). To extra innings they went, where Chad Bradford pitched a second scoreless inning. The O's then put up three straight singles against 'Stros closer Jose Valerde, with Kevin Millar driving in Melvin Mora with the winning run in the bottom of the tenth. Oh, and Miguel Tejada went 0-4. The O's go for the sweep tonight, with Brian Burres opposing Shawn Chacon.
