Wei-Yin Chen, 2013 Panini Pinnacle #77

Well, that was unpleasant. The Orioles have their first series loss of the season and their first losing streak. The Red Sox, as loath as I am to admit it, are a pretty good team. They didn't win the 2013 World Series by accident. In 27 tries over these first three games of the season, Baltimore pitchers had one 1-2-3 inning. Wei-Yin Chen suffered death by a thousand paper cuts tonight, giving up four runs on 11 singles and a double. The Birds continued their opening-series offensive torpor, scraping together three runs before being blanked in the final three innings. There's still 159 games left to go, and tomorrow's another day. Off to Detroit.
