A seething Trembley
Orioles manager Dave Trembley was very curt following his team’s 4-3 10th-inning loss to the Nationals, cutting off the media session by nearly running away as he called, “that’s about it.”
“A lot of things happened in the game that have been repetitive, but the intent to play hard, to come back, the things that are very apparent, speak for themselves,” he said.
When asked about losing the game in the 10th, he chose to ignore the question by answering: “I thought we did a hell of a job in the ninth inning to get back in it.”
When asked about the lack of bench depth and having to use slumping Garret Atkins in a big spot in the ninth Trembley said: “I thought Atkins had a very good at-bat. He didn’t get the hit. The game, there’s a lot of stories, different chapters within the game. A lot of different things happened.”
Including Corey Patterson’s failure to tag up on a ball hit in the sixth. When asked about that, Trembley responded curtly: “That is about as plain as the nose on my face, what you should do. That was a mistake that was made by a guy with a lot of experience. You can go ask Corey Patterson instead of asking me because that’s an insult to my intelligence.”
