Dave Trembley has started to crack a smile, and why not. The Orioles have won six of their last seven games going into Matt Wieters' debut tomorrow night. The subject du jour was the guy who came up from Norfolk for tonight's game -- David Hernandez.
"I thought after the first inning, obviously David was excited and he had every right to be,'' Trembley said. "After the first inning he really settled down. his fastball, I think we talked about that earlier, he can elevate his fastball and change eye levels with it. His change up was good, and he worked out of jams three different times. I was impressed."
On Luke Scott: He's a guy that when he's in a groove, he likes that fastball. He usually doesn't miss it. He's been chomping at the bit to come back . He told me he only needed two games at Delmarva and that's all he needed. He's come up with some big, big hits for us."
On a week of Oriole magic: When you win, it's a whole lot of fun. In the last inning I saw nine guys up on the top step and on the rail. Roberts called the home run in the dugout before Scott hit it. There's justg a real good feel about what's going on. Melvin kicks one, and keeps his head up and comes back and starts the big double play. We've got a long way to go but I felt a few days ago that we were starting to turn a corner."
