The Orioles will send Brian Roberts on an injury rehab assignment to Double-A Bowie tomorrow and determine his status after the game. It's possible he'll only be there for one night, rest on Thursday and join the team Friday in Washington, D.C.
Twenty-one of the 52 hits off Bruce Chen have been for extra bases, including four of five tonight. He's allowed 13 homers, second in the majors to Carlos Silva (15). He's given up two or more in five of his seven starts.
"I actually thought he threw the ball more like himself tonight," manager Sam Perlozzo said. "He just threw a lot of pitches (95). But I thought his style was coming forward a little bit more and I thought that was a positive step for him, actually."
