2012 stats: .167/.182/.238, 1 HR, 2 RBIs, 3 R, 15 Ks, 1 BB Skinny: Without question, the highlight of Flaherty's week was hitting his first major league home run to lead off the Orioles' 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of last Thursday's doubleheader. It was one of three consecutive homers for the Orioles in the first inning as J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis also went deep. There's not much else to say here (other than: Let's hope Flaherty doesnt manage to sustain his 15-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio for an extended period of time).
