Six runs, a pair of plunked batters, and a bench-clearer all within four innings will ensure Jeremy Guthrie doesn’t forget his Australian Baseball League (ABL) debut any time soon.The veteran big-leaguer and member of the 2015 Kansas City Royals World Series winning team was also let down by his new Melbourne Aces teammates, who committed two crucial errors which lead to four unearned runs and an early ending to Guthrie’s night.

The 37-year-old struggled in the first, as the Sydney Blue Sox bats rocked the viagra femme prix naturel Oregon native with a trio of doubles, a single, and a walk, before an inning-ending double play capped the damage at three. Had Aces second baseman Jared Cruz not committed a fielding error earlier, that would have been just two.

After settling in and working through scoreless second and third innings, with one out in the fourth a wayward throw from Aces shortstop Darryl George was the catalyst for the floodgates to open and the Blue Sox ultimately added another three runs to increase their lead to 6-1. Guthrie wouldn’t return after retiring Stone Garrett to end the inning, ensuring his night ended after just 72 pitches. In total, he allowed six runs (two earned) off six hits, a walk, and two hit batters. He struck out just one.

Continuing the Orioles connection to the game, Guthrie was relieved by former O’s farmhand Matthew Wilson, who also struggled – walking two, plunking one, and allowing two hits which cost him a pair of runs. Another former Orioles farmhand, Aces catcher Allan de San Miguel, went 0-for-1 with a walk.

The league-leading Aces would go on to lose 9-2, however still own an impressive 16-6 record on the season.
