At the Plate: Hey! The O's won AND Brian had a big game! It's about time. I don't know where Brian's been all week - but he's back and we missed him! He had two hits off of Roy Halladay last night and a HUGE bases loaded walk in the eight inning that gave the O's the lead for good. (Did anyone else notice that the TV coverage didn't show that ball four pitch live and have a heart attack? They were showing the crowd when he threw it!). Brian had several really patient at-bats last night that resulted in him reaching base - that's a great sign that he's back to normal.
Up Next: The O's are in the Twinkie Dome tonight for a weekend series against the Twins. Lopez & Lopez will try to make it four in a row against Minnesota's Brad Radke. Brian's only 3-for-17 lifetime against Radke, but two of the three were home runs!
