Pride goeth before the fall indeed.
After constructing a 9-1 lead, and sitting through a rain delay, Boston's vaunted bullpen apparently mistook themselves for the Mets' bullpen, undergoing a complete implosion. They allowed 5 runs in the seventh and 5 more in the 8th to give Baltimore a shocking 11-10 advantage, which George Sherrill managed to hang on to for a gut punch loss.
The blame pie has plenty of slices tonight, Bat Masterson taking one, along with Sensei Saito, the Okey Doke, MDC, and even the Lord of the Dance.
Teach me to mock the mighty Orioles.
