More Marco: Red Sox shortstop cuts down tying run at the plate

The Orioles wasted a leadoff double from Mark Reynolds in the bottom of the fifth, as Red Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro was able to throw out the tying run at the plate on a Nolan Reimold grounder and help keep Boston on top of the Orioles 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Reynolds advanced to third on a Chris Davis grounder and then went on contact as Nolan Reimold grounded to short.  Scutaro’s throw home was a bit off, but Ryan Lavarnway made a nice diving tag to get Reyolds for the second out of the inning.  Robert Andino then grounded out to end it.

With the Yankees now up on the Rays 7-0 after an Andruw Jones homer, the Red Sox may well stay out of a Game 163 playoff if they can hold on to their lead for four more innings.

    Having been an Orioles fan since the Beatles were popular on vinyl 33’s, I simply can not reach down far enough and feel ANY sympathy for the Soxs. They regularly field championship calibur teams. With the Orioles, the question I regularly hear about them is “What do the Orioles & Michael Jackson have in common?” …. of course the answer is, “they both wear one glove and no one knows what for!”

    I’m hoping, with the age of medical science, that I’ll live long enough to see the Orioles in one more World Series … yeah, yeah … I know, well, that’ll happen when they get AC in HELL, right?
