Going for the sweep

The Baltimore Orioles are going for the sweep of the Washington Nationals Sunday, the word sweep has not been used often this year for the Orioles except when they are trying to avoid being swept.

The Orioles had another come from behind win against the Nationals Saturday. The Orioles were down by 5 runs in the top of the fourth inning but came back thanks to a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth by Adam Jones and a 4 run inning in the sixth.

Corey Patterson, Matt Wieters, and Miguel Tejada all had great days at the plate. Wieters had 3 hits and 2 RBI’s, he finally looks comfortable in the batters box.

Brad Bergesen struggled in his first game since being called up from triple A. For the long run I am not worried about him he missed a lot of time due to weird injuries and still has not found the mechanics that he had perfected for so long. He allowed five earned runs in four innings.

On the Nationals side they lost back to back games in which they had a big lead early in the ball game.
