Hits and misses

July 03, 1996|By Buster Olney

On the field: SkyDome fans gave Roberto Alomar a lot of respectful cheers in his first at-bat Monday, but with each at-bat, the booing directed at him gets progressively worse. He's responded with hits and defense. He was involved in two double plays in the first three innings last night.

In the dugout: Orioles general manager Pat Gillick and manager Davey Johnson will have a tough decision to make when Jeff Huson comes back from knee surgery sometime in the next two weeks. They'll have to cut someone to add Huson, who went 7-for-16 in four games for Single-A Frederick, and then 0-for-4 in his first game with Double-A Bowie on Monday.

In the clubhouse: Brady Anderson tripled in the fifth inning, after Otis Nixon and Jacob Brumfield botched his fly to deep right, but after sliding into the base, he got up flexing both his hands. "I got cleated and hit with the ball on the same play," Anderson said. "I don't know what happened. All I know is I came up with two bad fingers."
