It was just four months ago that Robert Andino blooped a fly ball off Jonathan Papelbon to left field that Carl Crawford muffed as the Orioles defeated the Red Sox 4-3 eliminating Boston from postseason contention.

Baltimore is a two sport city and one that has been dominated by football for over a decade. But on September 28, baseball was top dog.
This Sunday, Baltimore’s other professional sports franchise, the Ravens, has a chance to eliminate another one of Boston’s teams. The Ravens head to New England for the AFC Championship in a game that they listed as seven point underdogs.

We’ll find out Sunday night. Kickoff is at 3:00. Are you ready?
