Baltimore manager Dave Trembley had a couple amusing comments about Brian Bass — who earned the victory in Wednesday night’s game — during his pregame media briefing on Thursday. Trembley also noted another rain game in which Bass picked up the decision from last season and drew a hasty horse racing type conclusion.
“Bass seems to be a mudder,” he said.
Trembley also noted a play in which Bass attempted to field a ball back through the box with his bare hand, a brave effort which may have turned a double-play ball into an infield single. Trembley, concerned about the potential for injury, counseled against him doing it again.
“I told him to keep his hands in his pocket after he throws the ball,” he said.
