Something positive happened in the O’s organization this fall. For the 3rd time in this decade, the Frederick Keys have won the Carolina League and the Mills Cup.
The series clincher came in game 5 against the Kinston Indians. The Keys exploded for 11 runs, a postseason record, in the third inning and cruised to the victory. Manny Machado had four RBIs in the win including an emphatic three-run blast that capped off the big third inning. Machado was named the MVP for series for his efforts.
