Hits And Misses

May 11, 1995|By Buster Olney

On the field: Boston's Wes Chamberlain may include the Orioles in his will, because they are making his season. Chamberlain had three at-bats in the first 11 Red Sox games. But he pinch-hit in the ninth inning Tuesday, hit a game-winning homer against Armando Benitez, and earned a start in last night's game. Chamberlain walked in the third inning and stole second -- only the sixth steal of his career and his first since 1993.

In the dugout: Orioles manager Phil Regan said earlier this week that he wanted to find a way to get Sherman Obando's bat in the lineup. He started him as the DH Tuesday, then in right field last night. Obando made a nice running catch in the fourth inning, grabbing a looper by Luis Alicea after making a long run to the line.

In the clubhouse: Brady Anderson, who stretched his hitting streak to 11 games, on who would be the type of hitter to challenge Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak: "I don't think anyone is the type of hitter to get hits in that many games."
