vs. BLUE JAYS 8/06

Recommended Posts

That was perhaps the most unusual run I've ever seen scored by the Orioles this season.

Well-hit ball, but hangs up there, outfielders get to it.

Wait.... wait! TWO of them get to it! They're getting closer... CLOSER... and they SMACK into each other! But one of them catches it!

The one who caught the ball stays on his feet! The baserunners are advancing! He's throwing the ball in!

The cut-off man misses the catch and the ball rolls into the infield toward the pitcher's mound!!!

Lead runner heading for home, and he makes it -- there's no play at the plate!!!!!

Pretty exciting stuff, and pretty hilarious fielding by the Jays.

Os don't have many innings like this, making the opponents pay for their mistakes (BB, HBP, Error). Really nice to see.

Nice pickoff move back there in the 8th. Did that pitcher even throw a pitch to the plate? Or did he just throw a pick-off? :laughlol:

That would be really funny if he was a rookie LOOGY who came up for his major league debut in the bottom of the 8th with 2 outs, and picked off the guy at first before even delivering his first pitch to the plate. And then they pull him for the closer for the 9th, so that he can go down on record as having "0 pitches" in his MLB debut. :laughlol:

Question: Has that ever happened? Would any pitcher be able to honestly answer the question "So how did your major league debut game go?" with "I picked a guy off at first."? :laughlol:

Also, AWESOME and quick 9th inning with HOW many pitches thrown by Gregg? Holy moly. 3 up 3 down with some flashing of the leather?!
