Orioles trail 6-3 after seven innings. In his first at-bat for Baltimore, Jake Fox nearly sent the crowd into a frenzy with a deep drive to center that would’ve tied the game. Instead, it was a warning-track out that moved the O’s no closer. The fans still gave Fox a hearty hand for his effort. Long-ball outs are reason for excitement in Baltimore these days. At least when they come from a new face.
Shortly after applauding Fox, the first wave of early departures took to the gates. There’s still a healthy portion of the crowd remaining in Baltimore; however, I don’t sense that anyone’s expecting Orioles Magic.
