Although it was close throughout, the Orioles dropped the first of a four game series against the Chicago White Sox. 

Some games, it’s easier to know what to focus on than others. For example, everyone was making contact on Monday night, so the infielders were busy making plays all game. I only came away with a handful of shots of batters. 

I also fooled around with the wide angle a bit. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned:” The more action there is, the better I am at shooting. I really enjoy when it seems like there’s a play almost every pitch. It’s during those times when I find myself shooting with a nice rhythm.
