Sports Orioles Peter Schmuck's Report Cards

The bottom line: C

The Orioles won three of the five games they played during a strange weather week, so it's going to be hard to be too critical of their performance, but they should have been able to squeeze more than one victory out of the series against the Minnesota Twins. The three Minnesota starters (Ricky Nolasco, Kevin Correia and Phil Hughes) entered the series with a combined 3-6 record and 6.38 ERA, but the impatient Orioles hitters spent much of the weekend getting themselves out. They batted just .235 against those three pitchers and just .240 in the series overall. For some reason, the Orioles seem to have more success against the league's best pitchers than they do against lesser competition. Grade: CHannah Foslien, Getty Images
