In case Rougned Odor needed any assistance, a Little Leaguer sitting behind home plate at Bowman Field on Sunday stood up and waved his arms, up and down, while shouting. Odor’s Orioles teammates were doing the same, signaling for the Baltimore second baseman to slide.
The head-first dive — as smooth of a slide as Odor displayed on the hill at the Little League World Series complex earlier in the day — slipped in before the tag, and the Orioles pointed to shortstop Jorge Mateo on second, who cleared the bases with his eighth-inning double.
Baltimore had faltered in the top half of the frame, giving up a one-run lead they’d held throughout. But as the Orioles have done for much of the season, they battled back immediately, leading to a 5-3 win in the Little League Classic.
