Hits And Misses

June 22, 1995|By Buster Olney

On the field: Among the Yankees' biggest problems this year has been the inability of their pitchers to keep the ball in the park. They have allowed at least one homer in 36 of their 50 games and a total of 70 -- second-worst in the AL behind Minnesota. Last night, they held the Orioles without a homer.

In the dugout: Orioles manager Phil Regan went into last night's game praying that starter Jamie Moyer would pitch at least five innings and as many as seven to give his exhausted bullpen a bit of a break. Regan used four relievers for a total of seven innings in Detroit on Sunday, after Mike Mussina was knocked out in the second inning, then four relievers Monday and five Tuesday.

In the clubhouse: "We couldn't ask for anything more than we got out of Jamie Moyer. He pitched a great ballgame." -- Regan
