Guthrie's still got it going
Jeremy Guthrie pitched well for the third straight start tonight, for all the good it probably will end up doing him. He worked six innings and gave up just four hits, but two of those hits were a home run and an RBI double by Nick Swisher, and they'll probably be enough to send Guthrie to his 13th loss -- especially after Mark Hendrickson gave up three more runs in the eighth.
Of course, with Andy Pettitte taking a perfect game into the seventh inning and a one-hit shutout into the eighth, Guthrie was never much of a threat to earn his 10th victory, but the Orioles have to be encouraged by his performance. He has pitched 20 innings in his last three starts and given up just four runs.
