BALTIMORE -- Two improbable comebacks produced one extremely uplifting victory for the Baltimore Orioles.
After Ramon Hernandez tied it with a home run in the bottom of the ninth inning, Luke Scott homered in the 10th to carry the Orioles past the Detroit Tigers, 11-10, Saturday.
The Orioles trailed by six runs in the first inning and entered the ninth down by one. And somehow, Baltimore ended a stretch of consecutive losses in one-run games at nine.
"People who have been watching the club all year have seen similar-type events like this," Manager Dave Trembley said. "I tell you, every time it happens it just makes you a little more proud to be around these guys because they will not quit. They will not quit at all."
Baltimore has come from behind in 29 of its 47 wins this season, but not after trailing 6-0 in the first inning, or 10-9 in the ninth against a team that was 41-1 when leading after eight innings.
Scott's shot against Freddy Dolsi cleared the 25-foot scoreboard in right field and landed on Eutaw Street, an estimated 420 feet from the plate. It was Scott's third homer in two games.
