Some folks in Baltimore didn’t get to see the end of yesterday’s game

When you have a six hour ballgame in a three hour television slot, something has to give.  Usually it’s whatever is scheduled for after that slot.  But not in Baltimore yesterday:

The Orioles used designated hitter Chris Davis to pitch the 16th and 17th, and he got the win after a 3-run home run by centerfielder Adam Jones. The Red Sox were also pitching their DH. Except if you were watching WJZ, you missed that unbelievable finale, because the station cut away from the game at 7 p.m. (in the 15th inning) to carry “60 Minutes.”

The game was still available on MASN, and a large percentage of people — and I’d guess a majority of die-hard Orioles fans — have MASN in the area.  But not everyone does, so some folks got boned out of seeing the end of that crazy game.

But hey: Steve Kroft and Morley Safer.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
