Sports Orioles Peter Schmuck's Report Cards

Relievers: C

If pitching more innings than the rotation wasn't a quirky enough stat, the bullpen had a pair of losses in which the losing pitcher did not give up an earned run, thanks to a very shaky defensive performance by the left side of the Orioles infield. Overall, the bullpen pitched 27 2/3 innings and allowed 11 earned runs, which works out to a workmanlike 3.58 ERA to go with a 1-2 record. Orioles relievers have had plenty of better weeks, but this one was all right considering the uneven workload. In related news, Tommy Hunter, pictured, came off the disabled list Sunday, which will add to Buck Showalter's options in the late innings. Grade: C Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun
