It’s officially afternoon here in the BSMY Tournament.
Typically the 8 vs. 9 match up is a toss up, these two moments are definitely memorably, but I think I know which will walk away victorious in the first round. From the Modell Region, here’s #8 Chris Davis Strikes Out Adrian Gonzalez Vs. #9 Orioles Hit 7 Home Runs Against Toronto.
#8 Chris Davis Strikes Out Adrian Gonzalez
It was a crazy season for the Orioles and no moment could sum it up better than this one. When Chris Davis was called to pitch in emergency relief for the O’s against the Red Sox in the 17th inning, no one expected him to walk away victorious.
Not only did he, but he struck out the Red Sox $154 million man, Adrian Gonzalez. I’m still smiling about it today.
#9 Orioles Hit 7 Home Runs Against Toronto
Bombs away. The Orioles tied a team record with seven home runs against the Toronto Blue Jays on September 26. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each went deep twice, Nate McLouth, Jim Thome and Mark Reynolds also connected.
Voting is open from 1:00 PM on Friday February 22 to 1:00 PM Saturday February 23.
