Ty Wigginton probably deserved that one.
The Orioles burly first baseman absolutely mauled two balls in Monday's series opener and they absolutely died in deep center field, otherwise known as Death Valley at Fenway Park.
So with the game tied and two runners on in the seventh inning tonight, Wigginton decided to go the other way. It was a wise move.
Wigginton lined Scott Atchison's first pitch just inside the right-field foul pole. The three-run homer, Wigginton's 21st home run of the season, gave the Orioles a 4-1 lead.
