Not A Good Day For O’Day

An article by posted on April 23, 2009

Former Met reliever Darren O’Day was picked up on waivers by the Texas Rangers, dressed in Kason Gabbard’s jersey, and gave up a game-winning hit to Kevin Millar.

O’Day reported to Rogers Centre for a game against the Toronto Blue Jays before there was a chance to stitch up a jersey with his name, so he was forced to wear Texas minor-leaguer Kason Gabbard’s jersey. O’Day was thrown into the game in the 11th, with runners in scoring position in a tied game. Kevin Millar drove O’Day’s offering into the outfield for the walk-off single.

Rangers 7, Blue Jays 8 (11)

In other news, the Philadelphia Phillies were almost no-hit against the Milwaukee Brewers. Brewers starter Dave Bush held the Phillies hitless through 7.1 IP before giving up a pinch-hit HR to Matt Stairs.

The Brewers got HR’s from Ryan Braun and Bill Hall, and a bases-loaded double by Prince Fielder.

Bush became the sixth pitcher this season to lose a no-hit bid in the 7th inning or later, following Tim Wakefield, Ted Lily, AJ Burnett, Randy Johnson, and Trevor Cahill.
