O’s Celebrate Labor Day…Beating Indians, 7-2

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

The Baltimore Orioles took advantage of two situations: 1) the early exit of ace Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson, who left the game in the second inning because of an apparent rib injury, and 2) the solid pitching of Oriole starting pitcher Bud Norris who gave up only 4 hits, while striking out 8 Indians hitters.  Norris, who is undefeated as a starting pitcher since being acquired in a trade from the Houston Astros on July 31st, was aided by a 2-run home run by left fielder, Nate McLouth in the 4th inning, and a Matt Wieters 2-run homer in the 9th inning.  Second baseman Brian Roberts also contributed 2 runs batted in to support  Norris’s strong pitching effort.
