More of Same: Orioles 7, Phillies 2

Let's see how fast I can do this: 

blah blah blah interleague play blah blah blah can't win at home blah blah blah offense goes into storage after the first blah blah blah mediocre pitcher throttles the Phils sluggers blah blah blah Jack Taschner really, really sucks. 

That's basically it. Antonio Bastardo provided a bright spot of sorts, pitching seven mostly solid innings and allowing four runs while walking none. But the three-spot he surrendered in the second, right after the Phils had taken a 2-0 lead, proved enough to drop his record to 2-2. Jayson Werth again hit well in defeat--at some point when I really want to upset myself, I'm going to run his numbers in wins and losses--with two hits, the first a two-run double. Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino each drew a couple walks, but Orioles starter Rich Hill (who also drove in what proved to be the winning run) and closer George Sherrill held Chase Utley and Ryan Howard to a combined 0 for 8 with a walk. Young Baltimore hitters Nick Markakis, Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters all had run-scoring hits for the visitors.

The Mets beat Tampa in Flushing by a 5-3 score to pull within two games in the NL East.
