Ok. I should be jumping up and down to celebrate. The As won their Opening Night game. Yes, they won. The pitching was alright. The hitting was barely enough; at least they made no fielding errors. And that is where the worry about how real a 5:1 win really was. The As had an early run, The Baltimore Orioles came back with their own run. Later in the game, the As had a 4 run inning. Which wouldn’t have happened without first a major Orioles fielding error (RF & CF sliding and failing to catch what would have been a simple “grounded out.” A second error later in the inning, I don’t even remember who overthrew first base, meant that instead of the side being retired, there were still base runners after the man on third scored.
That is not how you win a game against a team which is even a smidge stronger. Plus, there were only two batters In the line up who started the evening with a drum beat. That is a lot of turnover split between older players needing to retire and young ones just called up. I skipped the chance to be on the field to stay with a friend in the bleachers. On camera? Me? Not likely.
Enough about baseball, I doubt you were interested anyway!
