The Tides lefty fell victim to a lack of run support by his teammates and suffered two losses. All that was despite striking out 19 batters in 15 innings of work and allowing only five earned runs.

The Not So Hotsheet

Brandon SingBowie Baysox – 3 for 19 (0 extra base hits, 1 RBI)

The Orioles had hoped that Sing’s disappearing bat act in 2006 was due to allergy and vision problems. Now that they have cleared up, observers are wondering what happened to his power and patience approach.

Justin JohnsonFrederick Keys – 1 for 14 (5 strikeouts)

The Keys’ catcher saw his struggles at the plate continue this week. He struck out four times in one game and batted only .070 for the week.
