MR. ROBERTS THE MAN OF THE HOUR

What a ballgame! After five innings the score was tied at eight. There was a 1 1/2 hour rain delay. The highest paid baseball player in the game ARod came up in the top of the 11th, with the bases loaded, and nobody out.

The infield was in when Rodriguez hit a screamer to second, just inches off the ground. Brian Roberts made a miraculous play on what turned out to be a grounder, scrambled to his feet, and fired home, in time for the out. Then the O’s catcher threw to third to double up Derek Jeter. Hideki Matsui singled in the two out go ahead run, 9-8.

But Alex Cintron drove in the game winner in the bottom of the 11th after the Birds had tied the score. Final score Baltimore 10, Yankees 9.
