Orioles Win Late in Texas Thanks to Patterson and Fox

Staying up sometimes after a long day is worth it, and last night proved it. After seeing Stephen Strasburg in Washington on Friday, I made it home in time for the O’s game to start – thanks to a two-hour-plus rain delay in Arlington, Texas.

Friday night/Saturday morning’s game looked like another Oriole loss in the top of the ninth inning against the AL West leading Rangers; however, with two outs in the ninth with the bases loaded and against of the best young relievers in the game – Neftali Perez – Corey Patterson was at the plate.

I honestly assumed the game was over as the Orioles were down 6-2, but for one night, something amazing happened. Patterson took a Perez pitch with two strikes and launched it into the upper deck for a grand slam and tie the game at six.

At near two or so in the morning, I reacted with glee as if the Orioles won a playoff game or something.

Jake Fox decided in the game in the 10th inning with a homer off Dustin Nippert and when all was said and done, the Orioles earned a dramatic 7-6 victory.

The win came at 2:30 in the morning here on Saturday, and Baltimore is now 27-59 on the season. It’s been a long season already for us fans, but it was good to see what happened last night. The Orioles are 3-3 in the past week, and while it may not be anything all that special, it’s been better than they have been playing in the past few weeks.
