Orioles Get Beat By Fish Late...

The Orioles were down, but never out last night in Florida; however, when all was said and done, they ended up losing in the 12th inning as Emilio Bonifacio scored the final run off a Jorge Cantu line drive to left, 7-6.

Baltimore scored twice in the eighth, and three times in the ninth to tie Tuesday night's ball game at six; however, giving up the game in the twelth inning was their own undoing.

Everything started off as Bonifacio got on base via walk and then found himself on second thanks to a wild pitch by reliever Brian Bass -- who lost the game. Thereafter, Bass intentionally walked Hanley Ramirez -- who had hit a grand slam home run in the 7th to break open a 1-1 tie -- and then allowed the game-winning single by Cantu.

Cantu's liner was fielded by Luke Scott who then threw a rifle-like throw to home plate, but catcher Gregg Zaun could not hold on the ball and that allowed Bonifacio to tag home.

I just found your blog, it's great! I've always been a big oriole fan! Brooks Robinson is the main reason I started to watch the Orioles...he was such a great third baseman. I heard he is playing in the legends sports challenge, I would love to see him there. Keep up the good work on this blog. Go Orioles! Hopefully we'll pull through this season!
