Seriously, would 20 do the trick? What’s it going to take?
Johnny Damon’s two-run, walk-off home run off David Hernandez in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Tigers a 7-5 victory over the Orioles.
I had a bad feeling about this game once interim manager Juan Samuel called upon Alfredo Simon to get a five-out save.
Was Hernandez unavailable until the 10th?
Jason Berken has been outstanding this season, but the two runs he gave up in two-thirds of an inning put the Orioles in a bind.
The Orioles left 17 runners on base, matching their hit total. I’d rather that their run total matched the hits.
I need a distraction: Single-A Delmarva’s Luis Noel got the win tonight by holding Hickory to one run over eight innings, with no walks and 10 strikeouts.
Seventeen hits would have been more than enough for him.
