Right after Lou Montanez singled home a run in the 14th inning tonight to give the Orioles the lead in the resumption of the April 28 suspended game, the Orioles checked with the Elias Sports Bureau to make sure he still gets credit for hitting a home run in his first major league at-bat a couple of weeks ago.
Turns out, he does. Since he was not in the major leagues on the original date of the suspended game, his statistics are counted as if they came in the Orioles' 130th game of the year instead of the 26th.
The game, however, goes into the books as having been played on the original date, so the Orioles did not end their three-game losing streak with the victory.
Cabrera update: Daniel Cabrera will undergo an MRI on his elbow tomorrow after seeing Dr. John Wilckens today. Manager Dave Trembley said the examination didn't reveal any serious health issues, but an MRI was ordered anyway as a precautionary measure.
