Tillman Wins 16, Buck Is Pissed, and We Are Knee Deep In a Playoff Race

Hell yeah, Buck.  Buck and Yankee manager Joe Girardi exchanged pleasantries between the 1st and 2nd innings after Girardi yelled at Orioles’ third base coach Bobby Dickerson.  Buck wasn’t amused.  It’s a playoff race, it’s meaningful September baseball, let’s fucking go….

 

Meanwhile Chris Tillman pitched his face off.  Seven innings, four hits, two earned, no walks and nine strikeouts.  He was yanked in the eighth after giving up a solo shot to Lyle Overbay.  No worries.  Tommy Hunter and JJ slammed the door and the Birds won 4-2. Tillman now has 16 wins after dominating tonight. Can you say ace?

Nick Markakis had three hits from the leadoff spot tonight to go along with an RBI.   Adam Jones also had an RBI tonight.  He’s got 102 on the season.

The Orioles hit four doubles off Sabathia tonight.

Crush Davis went 0-fer.  He’s got 19 games to catch Brady Anderson for the club record in dingers.  He needs two more to tie Brady’s 50.  Before the All-Star break, Davis had 37 homers and was batting .315.  Since Davis has had 11 home runs and is batting .254.  It’s a grind babes.

The Orioles are just 1.5 games out of the wild card with 19 to go.  Every game in magnified.  The Birds have helped their cause by winning 4 out of their last 5.  Keep it up….

Only 17,000 at the Yard tonight for the Yankees while in the middle of a playoff run.  Really Baltimore?  That sucks.

Same time and place tomorrow.

Nova (8-4) vs  Gonzalez (9-7)

It’s always fun to kick the shit out of the Yankees.  Especially in September.

Let’s Go O’s!
