Game 27: Orioles 5 Pirates 1 // Game 28: Orioles 6 Pirates 5

Once upon a time, this day was off to a promising start for the Pirates. Charlie Morton cruised through three innings and the Pirates had runners more or less perpetually on base in the early innings against Bud Norris despite only scoring one run. Then the rain came, Morton lost his edge, and when the Orioles put three runs on the board in the bottom of the fourth it felt like the...

Magic in Sarasota
