KANSAS CITY, MO - JULY 10: American League All-Star Matt Wieters #32 of the Baltimore Orioles tips his cap during player introductions for the 83rd MLB All-Star Game at Kauffman Stadium on July 10, 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Well, that was a bit of a drubbing last evening. And now the N.L. retains home field advantage for the World Series. Does this just mean we will get to see Zach Britton and his career 1.750 OPS swinging the lumber for the Birds in the the Fall Classic? Time will tell....
Not much in the way of O's news on this day. But the calendar tells me it's 7-11 day. So go get yourself a Slurpee and pass through the day in sugary, syrupy bliss.
