Was it just last inning or did he not have it all game?   All I can see at work on Gameday are the results.

Ben was talking about Means velocity being down today.  He said he thought it was by design to keep something in the tank for the later innings.  As I type this, another Detroit homer off Means.  Maybe he should have been trying harder all game because he is not going to be pitching later in the game.

It's totally his fault the other guys didn't get on base in front of him.  If he was a better player he could have willed baserunners.

This has been a problem with the O's all year long - they have a tough time stringing together hits and hitting the long ball with people on base.  They have to have the highest percentage of total home runs being solo shots.
