Orioles’ five-hour wait pays off with another walkoff win over Royals, 4-3

On a cold, dreary, April day, the Orioles and Royals decided to wait through a five-hour rain delay to play baseball.

For the Orioles, the payoff was totally worth it.

James McCann’s two-out, two-run single in the bottom of the ninth led the Birds to a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Royals, their second walkoff win of the series. A game that once seemed a lost cause for the Orioles — after a shaky Corbin Burnes start and a seven-inning no-show from the offense — turned amazing late when the O’s tallied four runs in their final two frames to stun the bleary-eyed Royals.
