Dalton Pompey walked with two out in the eighth and Baltimore Orioles reliever Darren O was ready to deliver a 3 burberry cloth 2 pitch to his nemesis, Jose Bautista, with the Blue Jays leading 8 7.

And there was a lot going on in the noggins of pitcher and hitter as Bautista had ducked out of the way of an O pitch and the two had a history going back to 2013. Bautista stepped in and after an O pick off attempt at first, the slugger hit the next pitch, a 79 mph slider, for a two run homer to left, allowing the Toronto Blue Jays to win the finale 10 7 in three hours and 17 minutes, a game that featured 15 runs in the first five innings. hit me a few times, I got him a few times, Bautista told reporters. he burberry shirts outlet online threw behind me. I figured he go off speed on me. If he threw a fastball I go back to the dugout. I sat on his slider. flipped the bat and circled the bases. is the only pitcher I have a history with, Bautista said. of the moment. There history. He hit me a few times, thrown behind me a few times, and I got him a few times. 2013, O struck out Bautista and yelled at him, the next day Bautista homered off him. Bautista is now 5 for 15 (.333) lifetime against O with four homers and eight RBIs.
