Patrick's First Game Ever at O.P.A.C.Y.

In 2005, my brother and I made the 4-hour trip from Brewster to Baltimore to see the Orioles play the Yankees.

The game was rained out, and we were relegated to watching them play the Indians the next day.

But that was just the beginning.

We spent the next 2 hours walking all over the city because we forgot which garage we parked our car in.

Finally we went to a nearby hotel to go to sleep, and it cost more than $200 for the night.

The next afternoon we continued to look for the car for another 2 or 3 hours, with no luck.

We went to the Orioles PR department, and a very nice lady by the name of Joyce somehow gave us an educated guess of which garage our car was parked in ...... and she was correct !!! :eektf:

Needless to say, the game itself was anti-climactic for us, as finding our car gave us a new lease on life (literally AND figuratively.)

Mark Trumbo (29) - .239/.286/.347, 80 OPS+

Austin Jackson (28) - .247/.291/.348, 82 OPS+

Logan Morrison (27) - .220/.297/.364, 88 OPS+

Dustin Ackley (27) - .215/.270/.366, 79 OPS+, traded

Mike Zunino (24) - .170/.227/.299, 48 OPS+


Nelson Cruz (34) - .324/.389/.604, 178 OPS+

All of the above should be in their prime and have underperformed their averages. Old Man Cruz is having a career year -- after having a career year last year. Baseball's a funny sport.

Not including a throwing error by the 3rd baseman, Villanueva allowed 2 base-runners in the first 7 innings ...... a walk, and a single.

At the time of the error, there were 2 outs in the 7th inning, and Villanueva was at 83 pitches. He promptly got the next batter to fly out on 4 pitches, essentially getting the 4th out of the inning.

He then ceded 2 more singles to start the 8th inning before manager Ron Johnson took him out of the game.

Richard Rodriguez then came into the game to record a triple play to end the inning !!!

21 OUTS: 7 Flyouts, 5 Groundouts, 4 Strikeouts, 4 Lineouts, 1 Popout
