Bottom of the 4th. Bases loaded. Tie game. 2 outs.

And Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris is facing the game’s best hitter, Mike Trout.

Bud The Stud throws Trout a 95 MPH fastball that just crosses over outside corner of the plate and Trout is called out on strikes. On his way back to the O’s dugout, Norris turns appears to turn around to third base, where David Freese is standing, and celebrates the big K.

I’m not sure if Freese said or did something to Norris or if Bud was just a bit emotional after the strikeout, but regardless, I loved every second of this.

  1. That is testosterone at it’s finest! :)

  2. That was definitely not a strike.
