No respect for O's, plus a Zaun faux pas
For an idea of how outsiders view the Orioles, check out this headline in today's New York Post: Yankees lay egg vs. putrid Orioles
The story takes other shots at the 4-16 O's, too. The 5-4 Orioles win "can only be described as an embarrassing loss" for the Yankees, writes George A. King III.
On another note:
One night before rookie Rhyne Hughes hit a two-out RBI single to help the Orioles claim a 5-4 win over the New York Yankees, the player he was traded for, former O's catcher Gregg Zaun, now with the Milwaukee Brewers, laid a few eggs himself.
In the first inning of a 17-3 Brewers win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in Milwaukee, Zaun had a series of awkward throws to Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo.
The first throw hit the dirt on the mound and rolled past Gallardo.
The second throw sailed over Gallardo's left shoulder.
At this point, fans began to boo.
The third throw fell to the ground short of Gallardo and rolled into the infield.
Zaun finally found Gallardo's glove, and Brewers fans in the stands cheered.
