And as a bonus (if you’re not above a little schadenfreude), it spoiled the Boston Red Sox’ home opener.
Red Sox slugger David Ortiz suffered an inauspicious final home opener of his career Monday. Not only did Orioles’ Chris Davis turn things around with a three-run homer to give the O’s a two-point lead in the top of the ninth, but also when Ortiz went to the plate with two runners on in the next half, he grounded into a double play.
The upshot: a last-minute 9-7 win and to make a 6-0 record, the best start in Baltimore Orioles history. (When the franchise was playing as the St. Louis Browns in 1944, they went 9-0.) They’re also the only undefeated left in baseball.
How about we celebrate by beating the Red Sox again tonight?
