I, like most people, was lost in all of the chaos of Wednesday night. So forgive me if I missed people complaining about the Orioles’ celebrating their walkoff win that eliminated the Red Sox from the postseason. But according to Steve Melewski of MASN, “some fans and media members were whining about the Orioles celebration.”
Really? It seems to me that if you’re affiliated with the Red Sox in any way, you pretty much lost your right to complain about this kind of thing for a good long while. Epic collapses will do that.
If Robert Andino gets plunked by Red Sox pitchers next season it would be pretty low rent in my view.
The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
