Another GIDP

Miguel Tejada grounded into a double play in the top of the first today to kill a rally. The O's had runners on first and third and scored a run on the grounder, but it took the air out of their first-inning rally. The O's are among the AL leaders in hitting into double plays: 53 - Minnesota 49 - Orioles 48 - KC Here are the O's leaders in GIDP's: (through Saturday) 6 - Garrett Atkins, Adam Jones, Ty Wigginton 5 - Nick Markakis, Nolan Reimold, Matt Wieters 4 - Miguel Tejada No Oriole is close to the AL lead in that category: 12 - Michael Cuddyer, Minn 11 - Billy Butler, KC 9 - Miguel Cabrera, Det & Joe Mauer, Minn Some good hitters on that list. The DP ball has been a thorn in the side of the O's all year. In the third, Tejada lined out to second. It seems to me he also hits the ball hard a lot with no hits to show for it. Don't think they keep a stat on that.
