Even though an error directly linked both of the runs that Tampa Bay put up in the away half of the 5th inning, the official scorer just made the proclamation that both of the runs are earned. If anyone can tell me how this is possible, please make sure to leave a comment!
Brandon Fahey’s wall scraper off the out of town scoreboard (complete with yesterday’s scores…still!) puts a lead off man for the Orioles. After a ground out, Adam Jones follows with a solid single as O’s third base coach Juan Samuel holds Fahey at third.
Guess what happened next? Aubrey Huff grounds into an inning ending double play. This meaningless game continues to get more and more intriguing as we head into the late innings.
