A matchup for the ages

In today's Orioles-Red Sox game, with the Orioles clearly about to squander a 4-0 lead in the 6th inning with Jamie Walker on the hill, something amazing happened.

Before Boston's center fielder came up to bat in the bottom of the sixth with the bases loaded and one run already across in the inning, Baltimore Manager "Diamond" Dave Trembley strolled out of the visitors dugout and made a pitching change that created a historic (not an historic) moment ...

That's right. As comically-named Coco Crisp came up to the plate for the Pink-hat Sox, in from the bullpen strolled almost-as-comically-named Rocky Cherry.

I'm just glad I was paying attention to MLB Gameday as the momentous occasion occurred.
