During the spring training, Rougned Odor invisibly complained about his time at the New York Yankees. He described their use on the third base as “inconvenient”. The club’s facial hair policy forced him to shave his branded beard, making him unrecognizable even to his daughter.

On Sunday at Camden Yards, he retaliated by making twice in the middle of a singles game to push the Orioles to a 5-0 victory over their former club, giving Baltimore a win in the series to close their first home game in 2022. . .

It seemed that the hit got rid of the long seasonal struggle of “Orioles” with runners in the main position. They were 0-for-6 in those day situations, pushing them to 7-for-83 this season. Robinson Chirinas was working 10 steps to load the base with two exits when manager Brendan Hyde summoned Ador, a second-base veteran who signed with the Orioles in the off-season following the 2021 clash with New York. remained in the zone, and Smell struck her in the middle.

Kelvin Gutierrez moved twice, killing Chirinas and Ador before Jorge Matteo scored one on the right, striking the Orioles three in a row with a runner on the second or third. Baltimore (3-6) have not received more than two such shots in a single game this season.

The surge shook the day the orioles crossed out 16 times. This included 12 in five innings from former oriole Nestor Cortes, who made a flawless inning – recording three strikeouts in nine innings – in the fourth.

Bruce in Baltimore

Bruce Zimmerman opened the 30th anniversary season of Camden Yards with four zero innings on Monday. With Sunday’s speech, he listened again to 1992.

With five productive frames, Zimmerman, a native of Elicot City, joined Rick Sutcliffe in his first year at the football stadium as the only oriole in Camden Yards history who prevented a run in the first two starts of the season at home.

Against the composition of the exclusively right-hand Zimmerman largely relied on his change, throwing it more than any other proposal. He received the highest of eight career moves and misses on the serve, three in one-third of a half-time meeting with New York reflector Giancarlo Stanton. In the bats that ended with Zimmerman’s change, the Yankees went 2 to 10 with four strikeouts.

Due to the effects of shortened spring training, which lasted for the entire season, Zimmerman was stopped after 75 fields, compared to 66 in his first outing.

Around the horn

>> The Orioles moved left-hander John Mins (left elbow dislocation) to the 60-day casualty list, ensuring their ace will remain at least until June if they seek additional opinions and tests for structural damage to his elbow. With an open spot on the list of 40 people, they chose right-handed Marcos Diplan, choosing left-hander Alexander Wells in Triple-A Norfolk.

>> Asked if he expects head coaches Anthony Sanders and Tony Mansalina (Illness) to join the Orioles during their upcoming trip to California, Hyde replied: “I hope so.”

>> Baltimore has yet to announce who will replace Means in Rotation for Tuesday’s start in Auckland. Spencer Watkins will begin Monday, with Jordan Liles and Tyler Wells performing in the second half of a four-game series.
