Luke Scott and Nolan Reimold powered the Orioles to yet another victory last night as we defeated the Detroit Tigers by a score of 5-1. Luke Scott looks healthy as ever, hitting another two HR's in yesterday's contest. David Hernandez had a solid major league debut pitching 5 2/3 innings and only yielding a run on five hits. This was the fourth time this season an Orioles pitcher was victorious in their major league debut. The Orioles improved their record to 22 and 26.
The best part of it all is that more is yet to come. Tonight, all eyes will be on catcher Matt Wieters, rated as the number one prospect in all of baseball. He will make his long awaited Oriole debut tonight against Dontrelle Willis, who has worked his way back from anxiety issues and has put together some great outings lately.
The younger Orioles are contributing better than most have expected at this point in the season, which really shows how far our minor leagues and scouting have come. One thing is for sure, the Orioles are exciting to watch once again!
