Beware of the Pookas & Fygars!!

Orioles OF Adam (Dig Dug) Jones hit the first walk-off homer of his career off of Royals closer Joakim Soria. He’s not Pac Man, so he’s Dig Dug. I didn’t make up the nickname but it’s still pretty good. Alfredo Simon picked up the win, it was his season debut since he has been held up in the Dominican Republic because he has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. Wait what? Usually guys miss time with injuries, or maybe visa issues…but a (gasp) murder??? Soria came on with a 5-3 lead and gave up 3 runs & 3 hits to blow the save, and the first major league win for Royals rookie Danny Duffy. Duffy went 5 1/3 innings, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks & 6 Ks.  The Orioles were 0-21 in games in which they were trailing after 8 innings this season.
