Matt Wieters and El Oso Blanco With Game-Winning Home Runs

The Orioles and Rays were all locked up at 6-6 in the bottom of the 10th when Orioles catcher Matt Wieters walked up to the plate with the bases loaded. Orioles Magic would happen on the next pitch...

Meanwhile in Pittsburgh just moments earlier the Braves and Pirates were all tied up in the top of the 8th when former janitor/ski lift operator/El Oso Blanco stepped up in pinch hitting duty to hit the go ahead bomb for the Bravos. This would be Evan Gattis' 5th homer of the season...

Two catchers. Two moments. Two heroes for the respective ball clubs. One a can't miss prospect from Georgia Tech. The other a feel good story about redemption. Gotta love baseball.
