M's Drop Second to O's, Bedard Pushed to Tuesday

by Patrick

I just got back a little while ago from tonight's game and what a disappointment it was. The O's were right on Batista taking him hard up the middle or watching him struggle to throw strikes. Mac left him in four or five batters too long and it was sickening to see how long it took a Mariner to get up in the pen. Sexson went 0-4 with 3 k's (2 of them looking), Vidro hit his SECOND HOMERUN of the year as did Lopez. Four errors combined with only six hits drops us to under .500 for what must be the first time in a while. While the score was 6-4 and Sherrill got his third save of the year, it really would have been a lot worst had the Orioles not made some dreadful baserunning blunders; I swear, Luke Scott must have tripped like 4 times.

Shocking news tonight from the M's blogosphere... Mac said in his post game comments that Erik Bedard, who was scheduled to start tomorrows game in Baltimore, has experienced hip inflammation and will not start tomorrow. Not only this, but he will be pushed back all the way until TUESDAY in Tampa Bay and won't get to pitch against his former ballclub. I have been looking forward to watching Bedard face the O's since we acquired him and now my dreams are shattered. Instead, Felix will take the hill tomorrow and then Silva in the finale. This will make the lefties pitch back-to-back... grrrr
