BALTIMORE (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Tigers lose to the Baltimore Orioles 8-6 after Taylor Teagarden hits a walkoff homer in the 13th inning for Baltimore on Saturday.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Orioles score three runs in the 13th inning to defeat the Tigers and Teagarden ended his first game with the Orioles in stunning fashion, hitting a two-run homer in the 13th inning that sealed the victory over Detroit.
In a crazy, back-and-forth duel that lasted 4 hours, 43 minutes, Baltimore scored three runs in the 13th for its 10th straight extra-inning win and snapped Detroit’s six-game winning streak.
Detroit went into the ninth inning down by three runs but an error by the Orioles’ Ryan Flaherty at third base and RBI singles by Brennan Boesch and Quintin Berry gave the Tigers a tie in the ninth and put the game into extra innings when the Orioles failed to score in the bottom of the ninth.
Alex Avila hit a RBI single in the 11th inning, scoring Delmon Young to give the Tigers a temporary lead of 5-4.
The Orioles scored in the 11th after the Tigers scored in the top half, then rallied again in the 13th after Quintin Berry put Detroit ahead 6-5 with a two-out RBI single.
In the bottom half, J.J. Hardy ended an 0-for-28 skid with a tying solo homer off Joaquin Benoit (1-2). After Adam Jones was hit by a pitch with two outs, Teagarden homered over the right-field wall.
