Dave Trembley didn't have all that much to say after the game, other than to point out the obvious -- that David Hernandez did not pitch very well.
"I didn't think Hernandez was very aggressive with all his pitches,'' Trembley said. "This is the second outing in a row where he looked like he struggled with his command."
When Trembley was asked if he thought the innings were starting to pile up on the rookie pitcher, he pretty much dismissed the notion that September fatigue might be an issue -- even though the Orioles have been more sensitive about that with some of the other prospects.
"He told me it's not,'' Trembley said.
Somebody asked Trembley if he gave Brian Bass an abrupt hook because of Bass's panicky throw into left field in the fifth inning or because he wasn't pitching well.
"Both,'' Trembley said curtly. "Both."
