The real story of this game was that it was tight until it wasn't. The 7-1 score doesn't show how tense that game was, how the Jays pitching staff held on to a one run lead by their fingernails.
J.A. Happ looked little uneasy both on the mound and in the dugout, but had a good four seam fastball working. He just might look uneasy when he's cold.
Per Shi Davidi, Happ threw his four seamer 62 times out of his 104 total pitches, and generated 15 of his 19 swinging strikes off it. Happ allowed five hits, one homer, nine strikeouts and three walks over six innings.
Orioles starter Dylan Bundy made Josh Donaldson look pretty foolish a few times.
It's relatively easy to do that when a hitter has as hard a swing as Donaldson. Donaldson commits. Bundy had a tight little slider working sporadically, and he got Donaldson on it twice.
Donaldson was just lying in wait and it finally cracked the game open.
This fan, who has been sitting all game in 6 C weather, calling this out is a hero.
My game thought, in tweet form.
For someone I just compared to a T-Rex in the rain, he was rather low-key.
MLB's Youtube channel posts condensed games without any commentary, just game sounds. It's quite soothing.
They looked cold and miserable.
And a lot like Muppets.
