Yeah, glad I missed this one. That was actually a reprieve.
Brian Matusz continued his troubling trend of being beaten up
and making me cry, giving up thirteen hits, which apparently is the most he’s ever given up in a game. That’s not okay, kiddo. To be fair, though, the runs came for the most part when he gave up the long ball, so he’s really just turning into Tommy Hunter. Which isn’t good either, but you get the idea.
Of course, what did we do then? We put in Tommy Hunter. Yep.
Tommy Hunter only gave up one home run today, but then he was replaced by Kevin Gregg, who copied him and also gave up a home run, so there’s really nothing good to say about our pitching tonight other than the fact that they’d all be a great help at the Home Run Derby in Kansas City in a few weeks.
Oh, and that offense thing still doesn’t exist. There’s that, too. I really don’t know what to say about that (although we scored all three of our runs on homers tonight, too). I’d like it if we could score runs in more than one way and not rely on the long ball so much. It’s too Yankee-ish and nobody in Baltimore wants that sort of thing going on. We’d like their success without their stigma, to be honest.
This one gets a Morris Marina, I think.
