Walk, fielder’s choice, walk, strikeout, strikeout.
Alfredo Simon is many things to many people. He isn’t boring.
Simon tossed a scoreless ninth, but he turned it into another marathon. A four-pitch walk to Dustin Pedroia landed him in immediate trouble, and a one-out walk to Kevin Youkilis didn’t improve matters. But Simon fanned J.D. Drew and David Ortiz, the last out coming on his splitter with the count full.
Nothing to it.
Matt Albers is warming in the bullpen. Will the Orioles actually use him a third straight night?
