Tommy Hunter wore an Orioles uniform for parts of five seasons, so facing his former team on Saturday – now as a member of the Cleveland Indians – was admittedly strange, he said.
Hunter entered Saturday’s 11-4 Orioles loss in the seventh inning armed with a six-run lead, but allowed two runs on three hits in the frame. Hunter allowed five of the first six batters he faced to reach base in his worst outing in 11 appearances with the Indians.
“It was kind of hard, you just don’t look up, just try and keep your head down and go,” Hunter said. “It was some pretty good friends, but you never want to give up two runs.”
