In a game with a similar outcome to the “Mother’s Day Miracle”, the Baltimore Orioles saw themselves with a big lead over the Boston Red Sox. But as time went on, the Red Sox chipped away at the 7-0 lead spotted to the Orioles by an ineffective Brad Penny and eventually came out 10-8 winners at Fenway Park last night.

While Penny had some good life on his fastball, his location left something to be desired as he walked 5 batters and left some pitches up in the zone that this good hitting Orioles team capitalized on.

“I felt great. I haven’t had that kind of stuff in a while. The walks killed me tonight.”

“I don’t know. That’s uncharacteristic for me. I don’t usually walk a lot of people. I got that one out of the way, I guess.”

“Stuff-wise, I felt great. My breaking ball was good. I didn’t get to throw too many splits, because I was 2-1, 3-1 to everyone. I had a great curveball. My fastball, I felt great with it today.”

He may have felt great but he looked awful last night. Hopefully, Penny can bounce back in his next start against the Minnesota Twins. With Daisuke Matsuzaka out right now, the Red Sox need him to pitch well because the bullpen can’t keep getting taxed.

Speaking of the bullpen, how good do they look right now. Manny Delcarmen and Ramon Ramirez still haven’t given up a run this season (knock on wood). Ramirez in particular has looked outstanding and is showing why the Red Sox traded Coco Crisp to the Kansas City Royals for him.

The bullpen is hot though right now as they have throw 16 straight scoreless innings. The only one who has looked a little out of sorts has been Javier Lopez but I suspect he’ll turn it around sooner rather than later. Otherwise, he may find himself out of a job.

One last thing to pass on about tonight’s game.

With the Boston Bruins taking on the Montreal Canadians in Game 2 of the first round of the NHL Playoffs and the Red Sox playing at the same time, tonight’s Red Sox game will be shown on the NESNPlus channel.
