Perhaps the biggest play of the night came before Ian Kinsler’s home run off Cormier. Jay Payton ran down German Duran’s fly ball in left-center, but the ball popped out of his glove for a two-out double. I had already written 7 on my scorecard, figuring that Payton held onto it.
It would have been a tough catch, but Payton makes it more times than not.
Now the Orioles must face Kevin Millwood tomorrow. He’s 8-2 with a 3.29 ERA lifetime against them. And I don’t need to remind you that it’s Sunday.
