Isn't Gentry the name of the guy in Trouble With The Curve who has um, trouble with the curve?

I think Gausman has run out of gas.

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.

Not difficult for me to not care about Donaldson pulling up lame. If he's not available for the rest of the series, good.

With a team as slow as the Orioles I wouldn't be so aggressive. But maybe he's over aggressive b/c there's a good chance the next batter is gonna strikeout lol

The name Gentry makes me think of this:

I wasn't around -- thankfully -- but it's a black mark just the same.

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

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.
