You know the old saying: Changes in latitude, changes in Natitude?
The O’s adjusted the Nationals “Natitude” in quick fashion last night with a six-run, six-hit top of the 11th inning in what had up to that point been a very closely contested ball game, turning it into an 8-2 win in front of 35,126 fans at Nationals Park.
Meanwhile, out on the west coast, The Los Angeles Angels took care of business against the Toronto Blue Jays late last night, 5-2 as Toronto’s tailspin continues. When you wake up this morning, the Baltimore Orioles have a three-game lead in the A.L. East.
