CRAIG KIMBREL COMES BACK TO BITE PHILS, WATCH!

By Lew Gould

Craig Kimbrel struggled for the Phillies in their seven-game loss to Arizona in last year’s NL Championship Series.

He’s with the Orioles now, and the many Phils fans who were part of Friday night’s sellout at Camden Yards gave him a rude welcome when he took the mound to pitch the ninth inning yesterday.

He worked the ninth again Saturday and received a similar reception. Kimbrel walked the leadoff man then struck out three in a row, although the four-run lead meant it wasn’t a save situation.

“A four-run lead with a three-batter minimum — for me that’s a save situation, especially against this club,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said.
