Today’s attendance: 10,248. Not a record low, but pretty darn low.
That’s 125,646 tickets sold for this homestand.
B.J. Upton has two home runs this season - both of them coming today. He connected off Brad Bergesen in the third inning and took Jason Berken deep in the seventh.
Tampa Bay 9, Orioles 1
Did two blown saves in four games really turn things around this dramatically?
It’s the second multi-homer game of Upton’s career, the other coming July 20, 2007 at New York.
See, bad things happen to the Yankees, too.
I stopped keeping score around the fourth inning. I’m just memorizing everything.
Ty Wigginton is playing third base. Justin Turner has replaced Wigginton at second. Also, Felix Pie is playing left and Nolan Reimold shifted to right.
I’m sitting in my usual seat in the press box.
Kam Mickolio will join the Orioles in Oakland tomorrow. That’ s when the roster move becomes official.
Every player will wear No. 42 tomorrow night to honor Jackie Robinson, so don’t be confused while filling out your scorecards.
