Fun Cards Submission: 1990 Topps Debut Tim Adleman
Rookie Tim Adleman made his major league debut on Sunday against the Pirates, pitching six innings while giving up two runs on three hits. A pretty impressive start, striking out six batters including Andrew McCutchen, Josh Harrison, and Starling Marte. Bryan “Fisher” Price decided Adleman was pitching too well, so he brought in the bullpen to give the Pirates a chance. Amazingly, the Reds’ offense powered through and Cincinnati ended up winning 6-5 when Scott Schebler doubled home Eugenio Suarez in the top of the ninth and Blake Wood (who?) got three scalawags to ground out in the home half to end the game.
I apologize for the delay in posting this. TWJ contributor Patrick sent it shortly after the game, but I was out of town and did not have my computer with me. I didn’t get in until late last night (thanks, Atlanta airport!), and have been trying to rest ever since. I’ve got some cool stuff to show off from Saturday’s Rays game, and some new baseball cards, but I need to rest a bit more first. Thanks for the “fun card” Patrick!
