I’m not sure we’ll do this for every O’s playoff game, but we’ll do it for this one, a 7-2 loss in Game 1 to New York.
Jason Hammel — Hadn’t pitched in a month but matched CC Sabathia for five and two-thirds. Too bad CC went three more.
Nate McLouth — Picked up a two-RBI basehit, plating both of Baltimore’s runs.
Chris Davis — Made two great defensive plays out in rightfield, gunning Mark Teixeira out at second and catching a ball completely out of sight down the line. Also picked up two hits.
Darren O’Day and Brian Matusz — Shut it down in the seventh and eighth.
Jim Johnson — Hadn’t given up a HR in four months, but he gave one up to the first guy he faced, a ninth-inning backbreaker to Russell Martin.
Adam Jones — Went 0-for-4 tonight, is now 0-for-8 in the postseason.
Matt Wieters — Went 0-for-4 but made two nice defensive plays behind the plate, throwing Ichiro out at third and making a beautiful pick-and-tag in a tight situation.
