Cedric Mullins walk-off home run gives Orioles 4-2 win and sweep of Twins

The last words spoken on the MASN broadcast before Cedric Mullins hit a walk-off home run to give the Orioles a sweep over the Twins were: “Cedric Mullins has never hit a walk-off home run in his career.” Reliever Griffin Jax threw the next pitch, heard Mullins make contact, dropped his head, and walked off the mound. That’s why it’s called a walk-off. He knew. Everyone knew. This ballgame was over, with Mullins’s two-run shot breaking the tie for a 4-2 O’s win to spare us extra-innings Manfred Man-induced drama.

This is another one of those games where the story could have easily been a different one that is much less fun by the time it got to the end.
