Orioles Fan Throws Back Anthony Rendon's Home Run




    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.

    Just in case you missed it, here is a closer look:


    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.
