SI has an article talking about the win, and particularly about Reynold's RBI-single:http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...#ixzz28pcZIwoJReynolds' picture-perfect -- and wholly unexpected -- inside-out swing drove home Wieters with a single, providing the essential insurance run behind a stellar outing from starter Wei-Yin Chen as the Orioles went on to win 3-2 in Game 2 of the ALDS to tie the Yankees at one game apiece.
"I was actually trying to do that," Reynolds said. "After Wieters led off the inning with a double, it actually crossed my mind to bunt. I know how big every run is in these kinds of games."
Bunt? That'd have been so unbelievable that an identity check would have been needed to make sure the man wearing Reynolds' uniform wasn't an imposter. But such a thought process shows how well the Orioles have bought into the team, a group whose sum is greater than its parts.
In the jocular nature of the baseball clubhouse, however, no out-of-character good deed goes un-joked upon, so when Jones brought him his glove on the field between innings, he told Reynolds, "Atta, baby, your fourth groundball to second base all year." When Reynolds returned to the dugout, second baseman Brian Roberts quipped, "It looks like your first round of B.P. every day. Why don't you do that more often?"
