    The Battle of the Beltways between the Nationals and the Orioles opened Monday at Nationals Park as a fairly strong contigent of orange-clad fans dotted the stands.

    With the Nationals trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the sixth, potential All-Star Anthony Rendon tied the game with a two-run homer that was caught by an Orioles fan, who promptly threw it back onto the field.

    Rude.

    Anyway, the Orioles (and presumably that fan) had the last laugh. Baltimore crushed three home runs in the 11th in an 8-2 victory. None were thrown back to my knowledge.

    The Nationals have now lost nine straight home games that have gone to extra innings. That's tied for the second-longest streak in baseball in the past 35 years, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
