Matt Tuiasosopo was a late addition to the Seattle lineup when Ryan Langerhans was a late scratch last night.
Now, maybe they won’t get him out of the lineup. Getting him out has been difficult for the Orioles.
Tuiasosopo hit a three-run homer in his last at bat last night and hit a three-run homer in his first at bat tonight.
He also had an RBI double last night, so he has three hits in his last four at bats in this series now with two homers and 7 RBI. Not bad for a guy that was hitting .173 when this game started.
So he has 7 RBI over his last four at bats vs. the O’s the last two nights. Ichiro, Russell Branyan and Chone Figgins have a combined 7 RBI vs. the O’s in 88 combined at bats vs. O’s pitching this year.
By the way, the O’s just got him out to end the top of the fourth with a man on second. He didn’t get that 8th RBI, at least not that time.
