Not the fans who have sat through a steady rain.
Not the sportswriters who just want to file their stories and go back to their hotels or homes.
I’m talking about Corey Patterson, who hit his first career grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning to tie the game, 6-6.
Rangers closer Neftali Feliz kept pumping fastballs at Patterson, who launched a 2-2 pitch into the second deck.
Patterson immediately pointed his right index finger in the air, the smile never leaving his face as he rounded the bases.
The Orioles lost two players to injuries. They aren’t going to lose this game without a fight.
Is anyone still watching?
Update: Jake Fox led off the 10th inning with his third home run as an Oriole.
If you’ll recall, Fox replaced an injured Felix Pie in left field.
I’m pretty sure that Pie’s injury occurred in this game, though it seems so long ago.
