It was a wonderful day for a ball game in Baltimore; however, when it was all said and done -- Koji Uehara pitched a great game, but his bullpen lost the game -- the Yankees took the three game series by defeating the Orioles, 5-3.
Baltimore might have lost, but Aubrey Huff made quite an impression on the New Yorkers and specifically, Joba Chamberlain.
The demonstrative Joba Chamberlain was on the mound for New York, and the Orioles jumped on him for a 3-0 lead. Baltimore started off the frame by Brian Roberts and Adam Jones got on base, and then Aubrey Huff hit a memorable home run by taking a Chamberlain offering to center field. Then in perhaps of one the most animated and funny celebrations I have ever seen, Aubrey Huff did a ridiculous fist pump -- first at rounding first and then at home plate -- to seemingly show up Chamberlain, who celebrates a huge moment with by doing it.
Did Chamberlain see Huff's display of affection -- maybe; however, his antics perhaps have irked many around baseball and it might be served as comic relief for Huff and the Orioles as well as giving the hurler the finger. Then again, it also might have urged the Yankees to get back into the game and overtake the Orioles.
