Camden Yards took on the calm feel of a golf event during Wednesday’s zero-crowd game between the White Sox and Orioles. And so Orioles broadcaster Gary Thorne took the cue

Thorne has called college football, college hockey, NHL, and obviously Major League Baseball games, but he has never broadcasted golf in his long, decorated career. Cool to hear him try out the whisper.

There have been three walkoff grand slams in the past week

Last night Jason Kipnis led the Indians to victory over the Chicago White Sox via a walkoff grand slam. Such a beast is a pretty special, but lately they’ve been surprisingly common. Indeed, Kipnis’ walkoff slam was the third one in the space of a week.

Francisco Mejia of the Padres hit a walkoff salami on Sunday afternoon to lead San Diego over the Texas Rangers. Sal Perez of the Royals did the deed on Friday against the Twins.

As Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com tweeted this morning, there were only two walkoff grand slams in the entire 2016 season. Having three in a week is pretty darn cool, eh?
