That was one amazing game last night!
The Orioles wrapped up a winning homestand as they defeated the New York Mets thanks to Aubrey Huff's game-winning RBI single in the 9th inning, 5-4.
Baltimore trailed 4-3 in the ninth against New York, and their closer, Francisco "K-Rod" Rodriguez came into close the game. It seemed that the Mets would take the win as Rodriguez had been nothing short of dominant in the 2009 season until Thursday night.
The deciding frame kicked off as rookie Matt Wieters doubled, and then was replaced by Felix Pie as pinch runner. Nolan Reimold walked, and then Brian Roberts dropped down a critical bunt along the third base line; thereafter, catcher Omir Santos tried to field the ball, but Felix Pie -- who was on second -- was called safe at third on a bang-bang play.
After a brief dispute by both David Wright and New York manager Charlie Manuel, Rodriguez walked Adam Jones to plate Pie, and struck out Nick Markakis. However, the next batter Aubrey Huff singled in the deciding run.
