Rank Relief: Jim Johnson blows second save in one week

RR 5.18 - 1

Matt Joyce reaches out and bumps a feeble double to take the lead.


Jim Johnson has had rough week.  Coming into the top of the 9th today to protect a 2 run lead, he didn’t even come close to protecting the lead.  After getting one out, the wheels came off.

RR 5.18 - 2

The tally for Johnson: 1 home run, 2 walks, 1 single, 1 double, 3 runs, only one out.  He came way with a 135.00 ERa and 15.00 WHIP.  Not bad.  Johnson wasn’t alone today either.  Darren O’Day came in to try and clean up the mess.  He didn’t help much.  Immediately giving up back to back doubles and walking in a run.  Bad day for the Orioles bullpen.  The AL East is shaping up to be a tough division again this year.
