Run Down

So far the Orioles’ trip to the Big Apple has sucked major donkey nuts.  The Birds, behind a less than stellar effort from Chris Tillman, lost to the hated Yankees in the Bronx tonight, 4-3.  Tillman wasn’t aggressive, he nibbled at corners all night, and the Yankees took him deep into counts and were able to capitalize on his mistakes.  New York was all over CT30 early, taking a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first.  In would have been worse, but Delmon Young flashed leather and robbed A-Rod of a three run bomb by leaping up the right-field wall.

In the third, Caleb Joseph would tie the game with a home run off of Yankee starter, Nathan Eovaldi, who, for whatever reason, reminds me of Spider form Goodfellas.

The tie wouldn’t last long as A-Rod went yard in the bottom half of the frame.  The home run (#661) moved A-Rod into fourth place on the career dong list.  He surpassed the great Willie Mays in doing so.  I won’t mention steroids here, because I just don’t want to talk about steroids.  Steroids.

The O’s would tie the game again in the fifth off of back-to-back Travis Snider and Caleb Joseph doubles.  Manny would sac-bunt Jospeh over to third, and then Jimmy Paredes would walk.  Paredes would then get picked off at first with Adam Jones at the plate.  Jones would then ground out to end the threat.  It was the last Baltimore threat of the night.

The Yankees would retake the lead on an RBI double from Mark Teixeira in the bottom of the fifth. Every damn time the O’s took the lead or tied this game, the Yanks would take the lead right back.  Tillman was leaking all night.  He gave up ten hits and three walks en route to allowing four runs in just 5.2 innings, and suddenly he’s got a record of 2-4.  Ugh.

Meanwhile, a lot of the Yanks are celebrating their early season success by growing mustaches.  That’s all well and good, but this group of douche-bags just can’t quite pull it off.  I mean Jesus,  Gardner and Teixeira look like their gonna straight up creep New York neighborhoods in a van with no windows looking for victims.  Hide all the goddamn women and children.  Yikes and double yikes.

Other Game Notes

Jimmy Paredes got a lot of grief in the post game show on MASN for getting picked off in the fifth.  It was ugly, but I’ll give the dude a pass on this one.  He hit a home run in the first and he’s batting .339.  He’s the man.

The O’s again played great defense tonight.  Steve Pearce had a diving play at second base (My man can play anywhere.) and Delmon Young added a gun down at second base to his home run robbery in the first.  Guy has a cannon arm.

Chris Davis went 0-4 with 4 strike outs.  He is definitely an all or nothing player at the dish.

Caleb Joseph went nuts tonight with a double, a dong, and two RBIs.
