Then in the fourth Luke Scott dropped a bomb on Eutaw Street with a solo homerun. It was his 18th of the year, his 3rd career on Eutaw Street, and the 51st ever to land there.
Rich Hill looked flawless through 4.2 innings of work, but gave up two out hits to Marco Scutaro and Aaron Hill to tie the game at two.
Hill struck out Adam Lind and vented a bit in the dugout by tossing his gum out on the field. I wonder if he chucked that dubble bubble as a curve ball.
Hill finished the night after just six innings surrendering seven hits, two earned runs, a walk, and four strike outs.
The O’s brought in George Sherrill with the game knotted at three in the ninth inning and the closer sat down three straight Jays. With help of Brian Bass and Mark Hendrickson, the O’s set things up for that dramatic walk off from Melvin Mora in the 13th.
Mora walked up to the plate in his biggest homerless drought of his career, 50 games without going yard. Melvin’s drought has been so bad that the team stopped playing his Venezuelan music when he walks to the plate and starting playing “Long Time” by Boston.
Apparently that’s all it took, Melvin hit a solo shot to right field and ended the streak and the game.
