How the Mariners beat the Orioles tonight.

With two outs, JP Crawford took a two-strike pitch to left field to get on first. He drew a lot of pro forma throws over from Felix Bautista.

When Julio Rodriguez eventually got a pitch to hit he smacked it up the middle, off Bautista's glove or leg. Bautista threw it to Mountcastle who had a tag on Rodriguez but lost control of the ball, which bounced off various legs and feet and rolled up the line. 

But most spectacularly blunderful, Rodriguez avoided the tag but also missed first base and landed farther from first base when Mountcastle picked up the ball. But for some reason Mountcastle tried to make a play on Crawford going to third rather than simply tag Julio, an easy play.

The runs didn't score until Jesse Winker hit a ball to the top of the right field wall, but that was enough.

Diego Castillo and I thank you Ryan.

At least Mancini's balls in play find the ground in Camden Cavern. Mountcastle clearly is getting robbed over and over.

Dan Connolly, who covers the Orioles for The Athletic:

It’s fair to say Cedric Mullins’ breakout 2021 caught everyone by surprise. Well, maybe not everyone. I kinda, sorta saw it coming.

Last year, we were asked by our fantasy sportswriting team to pick a breakout player for the clubs we cover. I hedged my bets, but I made a solid call. My answer was: whoever wins the center field battle between Mullins and Austin Hays.

Mullins won it and became an MVP candidate. But Hays played plenty in left and right and was a solid contributor, too. By the way, my answer to the same question in 2020 was Anthony Santander. So, I’m on a mini-roll.

My answer this year is sort of cheating. I’m going with Ryan Mountcastle, who hit 33 homers last year, so he basically already broke out. But I think his other numbers are going to spike in 2022 — his average, his doubles, his OBP, OPS and, yes, maybe even his homers. He’s my early pick for 2022 Most Valuable Oriole.
