Bases loaded, 2 out , bottom of the 2nd, and Nick Markakis nailed the first pitch from perhaps the best hurler in the AL for a rocket double clearing the bases and giving Tillman a 3 -0 lead. Tillman pitched a strong 7 innings allowing jst one hit but pitching out of a few jams. Freddy told me early in the day to look for a shutout from Tillman. This was a big win!! but witnessed by only 12,800 one of whom was yours truly. I have suffered through too many empty Septembers to miss any of the action this year.
Is Nate McLouth, the O’s Nick Swisher. This guy has been awesome–3 more hits last night. He has tremendous speed and quite a glove. Waivers–are you kidding me.
Once again Sweet Lou Ford went deep along with Adam Jones who slammed HR #100 after a lengthy HR drought.
