4/13 game thread v. Toronto

72 posts in this topic

I wonder if KG tired himself out last inning; his fastball this inning doesn't seem to have the same pop. Those were two shots by Bautista and Donaldson.

 

He may have, and as Pitbull pointed out on the wrong thread, the O's hitters gave him virtually no break between innings.

Like Mancini's approach: wait out the walk from a pitcher who is obviously tiring and is losing his control.

 

Schoop got severely squeezed on that AB. On 3-0, the pitch was up and out but was called a strike. Then Jon swung and missed on a similar pitch, then got called looking on another pitch in the same area that may have been out of the zone as well. Schoop's plate discipline is mediocre, but I think he got a raw deal on that AB.

On the bright side, the bottom of the order is 5 for 11 with both RBI

Wow. Doesn't get much uglier than that.

That's just inexcusable. Hopefully the bullpen can keep Toronto off the board

O'Day has punched a lot of guys out over the years on checked swing strikes. So that's a minor encouragement.

That's the pre-2016 O'Day we remember fondly.

Gentry can't even bunt without hurting his hand. Can't wait for Rickard to get back.

That was a get-this-over-with AB by Manny. Just flailing out there. Dude, it's a 1-run game.

 

Now here comes the most underrated Oriole. Maybe one of the most underrated period.

Get back in there and hit bumtista, before BB punches you out worse than Odor did.

 

Nice play by Schoop.

Need some insurance here. I just have a bad feeling that Zach is due for a blown save.

Sure hope Britton is sharp tonight. No margin for error this time around.  I doubt we can score again till tomorrow night some time. Can these O'/Jays get any tighter or uglier?

The offensive ineptitude tonight is worrisome. Some of these guys look completely lost

Dickersons send earlier with no outs was inexcusable. Keep thinking about that b/c that coulda been a big inning. And in hindsight it turned out to be their only offensive threat
