Steve Pearce is on fire. Just try and stop him.
With his team down 5-3 in the top of the seventh, Pearce came up with two men on as a pinch hitter for relief pitcher Preston Guilmet. He worked a 3-0 count, fouled off a pitch just down the left field line and then hit a line drive dinger to left field to give the Orioles a 6-5 lead.
We’ll ignore what happened after that.
The O’s greeted Pearce like this after he rounded the bases:
It was the Orioles first pinch hit home run since Luke Scott went deep on April 18, 2011.
