"Another bright spot for the Orioles has been the play of Ty Wigginton, who homered and drove in four runs Sunday and continues to look like one of the only Orioles hitters with a clue. Here's what you have to love about Wigginton: He knows his role on this team, and he's totally fine with it. He's never going to wow you in the field. And he knows the only way he gets into the lineup is if he hits. In fact, he sat down with (Dave) Trembley this spring and said as much, that he was going to concentrate on hitting and make it tough for the manager to keep him out of the lineup. So far, he has done just that. And you can bet driving in four runs against Brett Anderson , the A's hard-throwing left-hander, is going to get him a few more at-bats on this 10-game road trip—especially with the Orioles dropping like flies." - Staff Writer Kevin Cowherd (The Baltimore Sun, 04/18/2010, , Source )
