Orioles 9 Angels 3
From the very first batter, Nick Tropeano, called up fresh from Salt Lake City, could not find the strike zone. A prompt plopping later and the runner was on first base. It was all downhill from there. One run given up in the first, a whopping six in the second, and the Angels’ coaching staff was far too late to be able to change the outcome. Tropeano, with a shining 7 earned runs surrendered, followed with three scoreless innings after putting the game out of hand.
On the flip side for the Orioles, some guy named Asher Wojciechowski, a 30 year old with about 100 innings of major-league experience, held the Angels to two runs over seven innings.
Baltimore had 11 hits to the Angels’ 5 and 0 errors to the Angels’ 1. The Halos were 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position.
Playoffs? With the performance and effort shown in this series, this team doesn’t deserve it, and it’s not close.
Get ‘em tomorrow, I guess. Bleh.
