BALTIMORE Plays 1st Game in New Road Unis! O's Win a Slow-Pitch Softball Game Against Rangers; Uehara Tagged for Seven Runs
Seeing "Baltimore" or the road uniforms last night on MASN was a wonderful thing, and what was even better is that they beat the Rangers, 10-9. Many people -- fans and those in the media (WNST especially) -- have been waiting for this night for years now, and it finally came on Monday.
In a game that resembled a roller-coaster or better yet a summer beer league softball game, Baltimore gave Koji Uehara ample run support to win his second major league game; however, he was not good at all as he gave up seven runs against a Texas team that can slug with the best of them.
The Orioles had 16 hits -- a high on the brief season so far -- and Aubrey Huff led the way for Baltimore with a 4-for-5 night with three runs driven in. Nick Markakis and Ty Wiggington each had two runs driven in, while Brian Roberts went 2-for-5. Felix Pie finally broke out as he hit his home run as a member of the Baltimore franchise. He too had three hits, but still looked very, very shaky in left field defensively.
