It has been a busy summer and Thursday night I finally made my first trip of 2014 to Camden Yards. The Orioles won the slugfest 9-7 including 6 runs via the Homer.
This is Cruz at the plate - This is from the pitch that he would knock out to center for the first of the Orioles 3 home runs.
Devin Mesoraco had a big night for the Reds. He was 4-4 with a Homer and a Double with 4 RBI.
The Orioles offense spotted Tillman 6 runs unfortunately he was only able to get through six innings and the bullpen couldn't hold the lead.
The Reds #12 Prospect (mlb.com) Yorman Rodriquez made his Major League Debut on Thursday night. He was 0 for 3 prior to being lifted for a pinch hitter.
It was a bit warm but still more than nice enough for a game. Sadly the O's drew just a touch over 21K fans. They are a first place team, hopefully they will pack a few more in as the playoffs near.
