The Orioles are in town for a critical three-game series against the Sox. Baltimore finds themselves in the middle of a tight race for a wild-card spot in the postseason, while Boston entered the series with a magic number of 4 games to win the American League East division.

The O’s were able to sneak out a win last night, powered by a home run by the other main storyline of this series, first baseman Chris Davis. In the sixth inning, he hit his league-leading 51st home run, which broke the Baltimore Orioles all-time franchise record previously held by Brady Anderson, who hit 50 in 1996.

As a baseball fan who grew up in Baltimore watching Brady Anderson and the rest of those 90’s Orioles teams, it was neat to be on hand to shoot the record being broken. And, given my two previous seasons shooting for Baltimore, I was able to pass those photos along for Orioles marketing and social media

That being said, I’m no mole, and for the record I’m still rooting (and shooting) for the Sox come playoff time.
