With their next victory, the Orioles will equal their win total of 2018. At the beginning of the season, general manager Mike Elias said the goal of the team was to increase its talent pool, and that he wasn’t focused on the won/loss record.
Manager Brandon Hyde is trying to win every game he can, and he’s shown fire on the field. He was ejected from his third game this season in the second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader in Tampa Bay.
Hyde’s three ejections aren’t unusually high for a rookie manager. Cincinnati’s David Bell has been tossed eight times this year.
Some fans enjoyed Hyde’s display of emotion when he kicked dirt on home plate after the ejection.
