FIRST INNING: ROYALS 10
(0) – 0 ORIOLES
You’re at home. You’re 8-26 on the year. You have no hope.
But you’re facing the Royals. They’re just a hair better than you. It’s the first inning and something about every game is a new day.
And then, Jorge Soler comes up, takes a hack at a fastball over the plate, and Gary Thorne announces the beginning of the end of the Baltimore Orioles 2018 season.
“High in the air, that is deep center field, and goodbye home run.”
