The Orioles’ 2018 campaign has been an absolute nightmare, and the team’s recent fire sale leading up to the trade deadline was indicative of that.
Baltimore traded away a number of its veteran players, and it’s clear the rebuild is officially underway.
That seemed to fire up Orioles players in Wednesday’s game, though, as the team jumped out to a 7-1 lead over the Yankees in the Bronx.
The team did manage to produce a comical moment, though, in the fifth inning of the game. It happened when Caleb Joseph attempted to score from first base on a double, but he probably shouldn’t have. The throw home beat Joseph by a number of steps, and all the Orioles catcher could do was slow up and give catcher Austin Romine a hug, leading to him being called out to end the inning.
That didn’t end well.
