“I’ve struggled in the first inning throughout my career, I think.”
Chris Tillman struggled early, which, as the above quote suggests, is nothing new to him. I think. Actually, I know.
O’s fans expected as much from Tillman, and from Yovani Gallardo given their past histories. Nevertheless, what looked to have the makings of a high-scoring affair in the early going instead turned out to be another one-run grinder that favored your Baltimore Orioles, 3-2. The O’s are now 10-4.
In honor of Chris Tillman, Roar from 34’s selection for Victory Song No. 10 is “I Think I Love You.”*
Orioles, I love you. I think. Cue The Partridge Family.
*I can’t hear the opening to this song without “Hip Hop Junkies” immediately coming to mind.
