Such good depth in that pen. These guys are nasty. Got Verlander out early only to face two guys with low 2’s.

Hope Hyde manages this like a playoff game from this point forward, especially with the off day tomorrow.

All hands on deck at this point. Off day tomorrow

Can Mountcastle be any worse right now.?


He's a lost puppy for sure. Just swings at everything and continually gets himself out.

Mountcastle is who he is. Think Elias will look to change it up at 1b/DH

He's starting to remind me of Chris Davis up there. He's clueless.

The home plate ump is consistent. That's about all I can say that's positive. Maybe the biggest strike zone I've ever seen,

Agreed, the hitters need to realize that and adjust as best as possible,

I don't mind replay but get the call right! I don't know what the hell they were looking at. He was clearly safe. I didn't think it would even require multiple views.


It was close, but I thought he was safe.

Maybe they saw a view that we didn't see.

Urias doing his best Mountcastle impression ans swinging at garbage WAY OUT of the zone. Jesus…

Nah, the one angle I saw, Mateo's hand is clearly in contact with the base before the glove touches him. Yes, it was bang-bang and I'm not faulting the umpire necessarily but you have to overturn that with replay. Sure hope it doesn't come back to haunt them.

This has a playoff game feel.

Dusty is pulling out all the stops.

That's the Oriole way with hitting. Santander and Rutschman are the only two with any semblance in their head what a strike is.

The Astro's are damn good.  And the Orioles have not backed down one bit.  You have to love this team.

Add Cedric to the list too, but the team is improving in that regard.  I watch pitch count closely and the last few weeks we have done a good job driving them up.
