Sunday Bird Droppings

Gerardo Parra fits right in and Chris Tillman almost certainly won't pitch Monday. Things slowed down a bit after Friday's trade deadline.

About Last Night

Joseph, Machado HRs Help Orioles Defeat Tigers 6-2 - ABC News
"Caleb Joseph homered and drove in three runs, Kevin Gausman allowed four hits over seven innings and the surging Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 on Saturday night."

School of Roch: Gerardo Parra officially becomes 1,000th Oriole (O's win 6-2)
"Orioles starter Kevin Gausman delivered his first pitch tonight at 7:07 p.m., a ball to Tigers leadoff hitter Anthony Gose, and left fielder Gerardo Parra officially became the 1,000th player to appear in a game in team history."

Steve Melewski: Parra on his welcome, Gausman and Joseph on the win over Detroit
"I want to say thank you to the fans for giving me a good welcome," Gerardo Parra said. "I feel happy and like this is my house, too. That felt great. Big for me when you come to a new team and see the fans welcome you. I feel great, feel happy. Just want to play hard."

In Other News...

Orioles SP Chris Tillman near-certain scratch for Monday : Fantasy News

Gerardo Parra is asked questions. He answers them. You may be interested in the answers. Maybe not. It's not like he admits he sabotaged the Hindenburg or anything.

Birthdays and Such

Happy Birthday to former Oriole (and unlucky metalhead) Matt Riley. He shares it with author James Baldwin, actors Carroll O'Connor and Peter O'Toole, director Wes Craven, O.J. Simpson judge Lance Ito, musician Mojo Nixon, comedian and political gadfly Victoria Jackson, singer Apollonia, actress Mary-Louise Parker, actor Edward Furlong and singer Charlie XCX.

On this date in Orioles history, in 1964: "In Baltimore's 8 - 7 win over Kansas City, Brooks Robinson hits a ball that strikes the LF pole at KC and it is ruled in play by John Rice. Brooks is thrown out at third base. Later, Rice admits he made a mistake."

And I told you Ronda Rousey would beat Betche Corerria. And 34 seconds is her longest fight in her last three fights.

Consider this your discussion space for the PGA QuickenLoans National. Maybe we'll see a CC denizen in the crowd!
