Game 1: Tampa Bay Devil Rays @ Baltimore Orioles

D-Rays take it in 11


Above: Toby Hall sends one out to left to add 3 runs in the 11th,Right: The Bench gets up as the ball rockets into the left tfield stands

Opening day at Camden Yards couldn't have been better for the capacity crowd who flocked in to see the D-Rays and The Orioles do battle for Opening Day pride.

Tampa shot off to an early 3-1 lead in the 3rd off a Crawford double and a Gathright single. With Kazmir not throwing his right stuff all throughout the game he was forced to take a seat in the bottom of the 5th which setup Jesus Colome to come on and rattle the Orioles.

But it was in the bottom of the ninth when Kevin Millar (The former Red Sox player who was picked up by the Orioles in the off season) who tied the game up with his Huge 2 RBI Home Run into left field.

Although that brought down the spirits of the D-Rays, they fought back in the 11th to get 2 base hits and then have Toby Hall rip on an inside pitch to send it sailing into the upper deck of the left field stands.

D-Rays Talk:

Kazmir: "It just wasn't me out there today, it may have been because it was Opening Day, but i havent thrown that bad since I picked up the ball after the season finished last year."

Hall: "I just can't believe i was able to setup on Opening Day to get our club the first win on the year."

Personally I'd have Rocco batting behind Cantu,and I'd also make it a priority to get Gomes bat in the lineup. :wink: Just my 2 cents.

Game 2: Tampa Bay Devil Rays (1-0) @ Baltimore Orioles (0-1)

5 Inning Limit?


Above: Fossum only lasted 5 Inning tonight which is the same amount that Kazmir lasted in the last game ,Right: Toby Hall hits his second Home Run in as many games.

Only 24 hours after the dust had settled from Opening Day the D-Rays and the Orioles were at it again. It didn't take much for the Orioles to get there bats swinging as Hernandez belted a 2RBI HR in the bottom of the 1st to put the Orioles up 2-0.

On the other side, the D-Rays were having trouble with their own bats as they were kept hitless for 5 Innings. It wasn't unti the top of the 6th that the D-Rays could get someone on base. And it was not until the Top of the 8th that the bats were really alive when Toby Hall hit his second Home Run of the year, belting a 425ft Home Run into the left field stands scoring 2 runs.

In the second straight game the Opening pitcher for the D-Rays was only able to pitch 5 Inning which really the D-Rays because of the lack outs they were able to get while the Orioles were hitting singles, doubles and even Home Runs left, right and centre.

D-Rays Talk:

Andrew Friedman (D-Rays GM): "It must be something going through the locker room at the moment because our pitchers just can't seem to pitch more than 5 Innings."

Hall: "Two in two games doesn't do much for myself or the team because we didn't win."

D-Rays Notables:


T. Hall 1-3, 2RBI, R, HR

S. Burroughs 1-3, 2R

T. Lee 1-3, R

Game 3: Tampa Bay Devil Rays (1-1) @ Baltimore Orioles (1-1)

Hendrickson throws a gem


Above: Gathright gets one of his 2 hits for the night,Right: Lugo lays down a great bunt

After playing 2 games and having one a game each the D-Rays and the Orioles were both looking for a second win in the series. Both teams went all out swinging from the opening pitch but weren't able to put a run on the board until the 3rd when Joey Gathright hit a 2 out, RBI single into left field.

To back up the run the D-Rays had a great pitcher in Hendrickson who was not allowing the O's to get any hits at all. It was in the 5th that the D-Rays scored another 2 runs and went up 3-0 going into the bottom of the 9th.

Travis Harper came down from the pen to throw the last inning for the D-Rays but didn't know that he would have a tough time. Harper let the O's have 4 hits on him and they scored 2 runs in the process giving the D-Rays a heartattack. But as Harper does he came back and got the final out to get the D-Rays out of trouble and win them the game.

D-Rays Talk:

Hendrickson: "Well I went up against Kazmir and Fossum to put up a nice 7 inning game and i only allowed them 3 hits. I think this is a great start for me this season."

Gathright: "Today's game was good but I should have done better with my speed."

D-Rays Notables:


Gathright - 2/3 2RBI

Crawford - 2/4 1R 1SO

Lugo - 2/4 1R

Huff - 0/4


Hendrickson - 7.0IP 3H 0R 0ER 0BB 3K 0HR 0.00ERA W(1-0)
