More potential bad news on the injury front however. Orioles ace and #1 starter, Jason Hammel apparently tweaked his knee again and had to be removed in the 4th inning. Hammel is hoping its just a scar tissue issue. So let’s summarize, in the past 3 games the O’s have lost their hottest hitter, Nick Markakis, and possibly their best pitcher. But we have the Yanks and Rays right where we want them!!!!
JJ Hardy went deep twice and finished 4-5 with 3 rbi. JJ mentioned that the reception the O’s got at the Ravens game was one of the thrills of his career.
Miquel Gonzalez takes the mound Wednesday night for the O’s
