#131 - Toronto Blue Jays (60-70) at Baltimore oriLOLes (37-94)

Monday, August 27, 2018 | 7:05 pm
Oriole Park at Camden Yards of Shitbirdia | Baltimoron, Maryland
Sam Gaviglio (3-6, 4.94, 1.42) vs. David Hess (2-8, 5.50, 1.40)


Kendrys Morales has set a new Blue Jays record with HRs in 7 straight games, and he's gunning for the major league record of 8 games, held by Dale Long, Don Mattingly and Ken Griffey Jr.  Tonight, he faces victim #4 David Hess again, so let's see how it goes tonight.  Let's hope that Buck Showalter isn't a complete asshole and lets Hess pitch to Morales.

Sam Gaviglio takes the ball tonight, coming off a solid 7-inning performance against the OriLOLes his last time out.  He'll face Hess who has lost his last 7 decisions.


The clubhouse attendant's office is quiet today; no new names to be sewn onto uniforms for today, a day after Jaime Garcia was DFA'ed and Aaron Sanchez came off the DL.

Kendrys' last seven games:  27 at-bats, 13 hits, 9 runs, 8 HR, 13 RBI, .481/.500/1.370 (1.870 OPS).

And, perfect timing... this tweet popped up while I was typing that out:

Guess who has the majors' longest streak of saves without blowing one?  Ken Giles.  23 for his last 23 save opportunities.

Oh ho, more breaking news, this time about Joey Bats:

Thanks to Zee Panza ACE for doing the previous two series ... figures you'd quit as soon as the Jays lost a game.  (hey, kidding...)   Actually, I think it was RADAR who finished up yesterday's post and made it go live, so in that case, he gets the blame for the loss.  (again, kidding, you can release that death glare now).  A big thank you to everyone for keeping the game threads going while I was away.

Gonna keep Dabbles' tradition of posting a dog pic for good luck.  So, puppy, what do you think of the Orioles?
