I was at a wedding tonight and I missed a one-hitter? Drat.
To be fair, I’d be that idiot who misses her own wedding because a no-hitter is going on, but this was an incredible performance from Jason Hammel tonight – he had that no-hitter until there were two outs in the seventh inning and only allowed Jason Heyward to reach on a double. (There were two walks to Dan Uggla, but walks aren’t hits, so that one-hitter thing stands, yo.)
That was it.
On the offensive side for the Orioles, Mark Reynolds drove in two of the five runs with a bases-loaded single and the other three RBI went to newly-returned Brian Roberts. I like that fellow. “He’s the old guy,” those MASN commercials would say. C’mon, MASN, old people are good at sports, too – look at Ryan Giggs!
I’ll stop before this turns into a rant, but you get the idea: Brian Roberts is still good despite being concussed for a while and being “the old guy.” And I’m glad his return hasn’t disrupted the team’s flow, too.
Happy early Fathers’ Day, everyone! Enjoy spending time with your families!
