To the delight of the crowd, relish takes the hot dog race as we race into the third inning at Oriole Park. Adam Jones left two runners on to end the second inning after he committed the second strikeout of the inning. I wouldn’t ask Tampa starter James Shields about the first one.
The official scorer does not like Alex Cintron. On a Jason Bartlett slow roller to Cintron, the O’s shortstop made a good effort but couldn’t find Oscar Salazar in time for the out. An automatic error was assigned to Cintron. About two minutes later, on a check bunt attempt by Fernando Perez, Aubrey Huff made a quality throw to Salazar for the out. We’re waiting on one to get out of the infield in the third. 2-0 Orioles.
Section 374-388 Update: The ushers have left. I’m not kidding. There is no one up in these nine sections right now. If you didn’t celebrate Easter this year, I highly suggest coming down to the Yard and have a personal Easter Egg Hunt. Meanwhile, on the lower concourse, three children are racing in and out of empty rows around the lower bowl.
