His big swings are making the Baltimore Orioles feel like winners again.
One day after hitting a drought-breaking homer http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-michael-jordan-jersey ,
Davis belted a three-run double and Mark Trumbo hit a first-inning grand slam to
power the Orioles to a 7-5 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.
Davis worked on his swing for almost two weeks before returning to the lineup
on Friday with his first homer since May 9, and he added more momentum to his
renewed confidence with his big fifth-inning double high off the right-center
”I feel a lot better,” Davis said. ”I feel like I’m getting there. I’m
starting to get that calm and easy feel, seeing the ball a little bit better and
putting some good swings on the ball.”
Dylan Bundy (6-7) allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 1/3 innings while
improving to 3-0 in June. One day after allowing four runs and recording only
one out, Zach Britton pitched around a one-out walk to Johan Camargo in the
ninth to earn his first save.
The last-place Orioles have won four of six.
AL East-leading Atlanta dropped its third consecutive game. Julio Teheran
(5-5) allowed a season-high seven runs in 4 2/3 innings.
Trumbo’s homer was his fourth in his last six games. He has seven homers this
season after missing April with a right quad strain.
Nick Markakis, who spent his first nine seasons with Baltimore, drove in
three runs for Atlanta, including a two-run double off Donnie Hart in the
Ozzie Albies had four hits for the Braves Greedy
Williams Jersey , including an infield single off Mychal Givens in
the eighth that sent Charlie Culberson to third base. Givens’ errant pickoff
throw to first base allowed Culberson to score, cutting Baltimore’s lead to 7-5.
Givens walked Freddie Freeman before striking out Markakis to end the
The Orioles led 4-0 before Teheran recorded an out. Colby Rasmus walked, Adam
Jones doubled and Manny Machado walked before Trumbo hit a drive to center
”I think the two walks in the first inning got me in trouble and I couldn’t
get out,” Teheran said.
Trumbo took a called third strike from Teheran with the bases loaded in the
fifth. Davis followed with his double for a 7-1 lead.
”The bases-loaded double was the big one … that really hurt.” Braves manager
Brian Snitker said.
There was a 20-minute rain delay before Hart entered the game in the
Orioles: Manager Buck Showalter said OF Trey Mancini (stiff neck) needed
another day before returning to the lineup. He struck out as a pinch hitter on
Friday night and was held out of the lineup for the third straight game.
Braves: Closer Arodys Vizcaino was again unavailable due to a sore right
shoulder. He felt more discomfort while throwing in the outfield before the
game. Snitker said he hopes Vizcaino feels better on Sunday, but the team could
soon face a decision on placing the right-hander on the DL.
BEATING THE BRAVES
The Orioles have won the first two games of the interleague series. Baltimore
has won seven straight over Atlanta, including a three-game sweep at Camden
Yards in the teams’ last series in 2015.
Each team needed a fresh arm in its bullpen following Friday’s night’s
15-inning game. The Orioles recalled Hart, a left-hander, from Triple-A Norfolk.
Hart relieved Bundy in the seventh and allowed two runs without recording an
out. Infielder Steve Wilkerson was optioned to Norfolk.
The Braves recalled right-hander Lucas Sims from Triple-A Gwinnett and
optioned outfielder Preston Tucker to Gwinnett.
Orioles: RHP David Hess will look to recover after allowing five runs in each
of his last two starts against Washington and Boston. He is 0-2 in his last four
Braves: RHP Brandon McCarthy is 2-2 with a 4.28 ERA in 10 career
appearances http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sione-takitaki-jersey ,
including eight starts, against Baltimore.
Billy Connors, a three-time New York Yankees pitching coach and confidant of
late owner George Steinbrenner, has died. He was 76.
The Yankees said Wednesday that Connors died Saturday. The team held a moment
of silence before their game Wednesday night against the Seattle Mariners at
”A close and trusted friend of my family for many years,” Yankees managing
general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. ”Billy contributed to the
organization in countless ways over his long career as a pitching coach,
executive and advisor.”
Connors coached the Yankees from 1989-90, 1994-95 and 2000, and was vice
president of player personnel from 1996-2012. He was instrumental in the
development of Yankees pitchers Orlando Hernandez Sheldrick
Redwine Jersey , Andy Pettitte, Chien-Ming Wang and Mariano
Steinbrenner and Connors would go over pitching plans not only at the team’s
spring training complex in Tampa, Florida, but also while regularly watching
Tampa Bay Lightning hockey games in the Boss’ suite.
A native of Schenectady, New York, Connors played baseball and basketball at
Syracuse and was member of the Schenectady team that won the Little League World
Series in 1954.
Connors spent three seasons in the major leagues, starting with the Cubs in
1966 and then with the New York Mets the following two years. He was 0-2 with a
7.53 ERA in one start and 25 relief appearances.
Connors became a Mets batting practice pitcher in 1971 and was a minor league
pitching instructor for New York from 1972-76. He spent 17 years in the big
leagues as a pitching coach, working for the Chicago Cubs from
1982-86 http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-seibert-jersey ,
and also spent time with Kansas City and Seattle.
He was with the Cubs when they won the NL East championship in 1984, the
teams’ first postseason trip since winning the 1945 NL pennant. Rick Sutcliffe,
acquired in a mid-season trade from Cleveland, went 16-1 to capture the NL Cy
Connors also helped the Royals win the 1980 AL pennant.
Former Yankees pitcher Jim Abbott shared a story about Connors’ on
”Sadly, our family once lost a beloved dog in an accident,” Abbott wrote. ”I
was with the Yankees and on the road in Anaheim when it happened. Our pitching
coach, Billy Connors, told me I needed to be at the ballpark early the next day.
I arrived to the Yankee clubhouse to find the cutest brown and white Springer
Hill Jersey , ribbon around its neck, frolicking with the players.
Billy with a smile on his face. He had driven around Southern CA all morning in
search of this puppy. We lived with `Billy’ the Springer Spaniel for 12 years,
never forgetting the smile on Billy’s face that day in Anaheim.”
Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux, at his induction ceremony, discussed the
important role Connors played in his career. Atlanta scout Tom ”T-Bone” Giordano
scouted Connors as a high school player and the pair became long-time
”Lost a dear friend and a heck of guy,” the 92-year-old Giordano said. ”A
great baseball man.”
