BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The pie is back!
If Adam Jones was saving the return of the pies for a special occasion, tonight was one of those times. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched a nearly perfect game against the Reds and deserved something for it.
Jimenez (1-0) held the Reds to a pair of singles in the second inning and four walks overall in 7 2/3 innings, striking out three. Brad Brach pitched the ninth for his first save, completing the Orioles’ first shutout of the season.
It’s been over a year since Adam Jones’ tradition of celebratory pieing had to be discontinued for “safety reasons.”
