In last night’s Yankees-Orioles Game 4, Joba Chamberlain was pitching in the 12th inning when Orioles catcher Matt Wieters came up to bat. The score was tied 1-1, and Wieters, one of the O’s best hitters, had a chance to spark some rare offense.
Although Wieters’ single ended up not mattering — the Yankees closed out the O’s that inning — Baltimore took it in the 13th. Game 5 is tonight in New York.
For his part, Joba made light of his apparently terrible luck — he has a history of weird and unlikely injuries.
“I don’t know if I’d hang out with me very much. I might need a bubble. It happens. Obviously, it’s part of the game, you take care of it and hopefully I can get after it (Friday) … But right now, it’s Bat 1, me nothing.”
