The rookie left fielder didn't move out of the way of a split-fingered fastball. The second baseman, emerging from his slump, didn't swing at the last pitch he saw.
The Orioles accomplished a lot in the eighth inning last night by doing very little. Some players let the game come to them. The opponent's mistakes will do the same.
