Tides Opening Night Game thread
Since the O's are PPD, I'm watching the game cast for the Tides opening night game. Tough first inning for the Tides. Penn allowed three runs, all with two outs and in the Tides bottom half of the inning, they loaded the bases with one out before Mike Costanzo ran the count to 3-1, fouled three straight pitches back and then struck out. Mike Roberson then fllied out on the first pitch he saw, Tides down 3-0 to the Bisons after one.

Penn got two quick outs before Josh Barfield, who signled in the first inning, doubed down the line. Penn then gets Jason Tyner to ground out to 1B Oscar Salazar who tossed it to penn to end the inning.
After one and a half, it's 3-0 Bisons.
Due up for the Tides: Heinz, Boucher, McCoy
Otherwise known as not Murderer's row..

Chris Heinez singles and moves to second on an error by left fielder Ben Francisco. BTW, it's been drizzling all game and the radar does not look good.

Sebastien Boucher strikes out for out number one. Bison left-hander starter aaron Laffey seems to be pretty tough on lefties so far.

Penn allows a single and a walk but gets a double play to get out of the inning. He's now allowed just the three first inning runs.

Terrero singled, but another Costanzo K and Roberson out ended the inning. Six left on in three innings for the Tides, four left on by Costanzo with two K's.

Seems like Penn has settled down a bit.

Good inning for Penn in the 4th, two K's and a pop up. Looks like he's settled down a bit.

Well, McCoy hit into an inning ending double play to make sure they didn't leave a runner on base this inning.
End of 4, 3-0 Bisons.

Yikes, loaded bases with one out. Penn in a lot of trouble.

I know this is the first game, but it sure will be nice when they have some legitimate hitting prospects in Norfolk.

Well that just ruined Penn's night... three run double by Ryan Mulhern... That's the end of the night for Penn...
Six runs on ten hits and walk over 4.1 IP. That's a 12.46 ERA and what's called a poor start to the 2008 season.
