And so, the Orioles beat the Nats 8-2 in 11 innings Monday night in front of what seemed to be an evenly split 35,126 fans until the end, when Nationals Park sounded more like Camden Yards. Lots of competing "Let's go Nats" and "Let's go O's" chants throughout, although Brady Anderson's doppelganger threw back Anthony Rendon's game tying home run ball in the sixth. Here's Strasburg on the Orioles fans (video via MASN above):
"Well, maybe someday it'll be different. But obviously that franchise has been a lot longer than we have. Can't really worry about it too much. Hopefully our fans travel well after tomorrow."
Wonder if he heard them yelling "O!" during the National Anthem?
