Hits And Misses

September 14, 1995|By Buster Olney

On the field: Dwayne Hosey hit his first major-league homer on the second pitch of last night's game, a highlight for someone who fought long and hard to get to the big leagues. Hosey spent more than seven years in the minors before getting called up by Kansas City last year -- just four days before the strike began. Hosey was sent back down before seeing any action, but he finally broke in Sept. 1 with the Red Sox.

In the dugout: Orioles manager Phil Regan ordered an intentional walk of Mike Greenwell in the first inning, loading the bases and setting up the double play with Tim Naehring at bat. Naehring grounded to short, starting a 6-4-3 double play, and Jimmy Haynes escaped what could've been a big inning.

In the clubhouse: Regan, on being booed: "I think it bothers anybody. I've been booed in Caracas, I've been booed in the Dominican, and I've been booed here. In my mind, I've made the right decisions. I can't manage for the 5,000 and the 10,000 fans over there. It doesn't help when you bring in three relief pitchers in a row and they give up three home runs in three days."
