In baseball, some games are unlike others.
One night, a team could blow out their opponent.
The next, they may need to rally from a large deficit to pull off a jaw-dropping victory.
Other nights, they might just not have it and will take a loss.
But for the Baltimore Orioles, Tuesday night was a weird night to say the least.
The O’s battled it out with the Texas Rangers and were seemingly unable to put them away.
They allowed game-tying home runs in the seventh and eighth innings before allowing a go-ahead home run in the ninth.
However, Baltimore battled back each time and ended up winning it on a double by Cedric Mullins in the bottom of the 10th.
MLB on FOX tweeted that Orioles became the first time to allow game-tying or go-ahead home runs in the seventh, eighth, and ninth, but still go on to win the game.
One in a Mullins 🔥💪

A Rally For The Ages
That’s a lot of theatrics for one game, especially one where you win it.
When you allow two game-tying home runs in the seventh and eighth, respectively, and a go-ahead home run in the ninth, your chances of winning aren’t great.
But the Orioles still found a way to get the job done, with Mullins saving the day when push came to shove.
There really isn’t much to look forward to if you’re an Orioles fan, but with last night’s win, fans of the Orioles definitely felt a sense of relief and maybe even accomplishment for being able to win in spite of everything.
That’s what a never say die attitude looks like.
The Orioles never quit and pulled it out, even after everything that took place.
