I don't like the terms "fate" or "destiny" or "magic" or anything like that....but there is definitely some Orioles magic going on in Baltimore. The Orioles were trailing the Mariners 2-0 goint into the ninth on Tuesday, and tied the game up at two thanks to a Chris Davis two-run single. Then, silence...until the 18th inning, when Taylor Teagarden hit an RBI single to make it a 3-2 game. Mark Reynolds added a run-scoring groundout to make it 4-2, and a perfect ninth from Jim Johnson sealed the deal. The Orioles now continue to lead the second AL wild card race, and are back to being tied with the Yankees at the top of the AL East standings.
Game of the Night: Marlins 4, Braves 3 (ten innings), This one won't hurt the Braves as much as a walk-off loss in 2011 did, but it's still disappointing. Atlanta trailed 3-0 going into the ninth, but Miami closer Steve Cishek just didn't have it on Tuesday night. Jason Heyward led off with a double, and Chipper Jones followed with a walk. After a Freddie Freeman strikeout, Dan Uggla singled home Heyward to make it 3-1. That brought up the struggling Brian McCann against new pitcher (and former Brave) Mike Dunn, who gave up a game-tying double to McCann. The Braves couldn't bring McCann home, and they extinguished a bases loaded, none out situation in the bottom of the ninth. In the bottom of the tenth, Jose Reyes blooped a Cory Gearrin pitch into shallow right field that fell *just* shy of the glove of Heyward, giving the Marlins a comeback win.no comments
