Baltimore ended a tremendous three-city trip on the West Coast with Sunday's 3-2, 10-inning win over the Mariners at Safeco Field, the latest example of a thriving starting staff backed by solid defense and just enough from the bats.
For almost all of us, it starts the same way. Mom or dad give us a bat and a ball, maybe even a glove. They send us out to play and they keep an eye on us to see what happens. You never ever know. That's the best thing about baseball, whether the players are the best in the world or the kids on your block.

The big day finally arrived on Sunday for a memorable Hall of Fame Class of 2014 -- 300-game winners Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, slugger Frank Thomas and managers Joe Torre, Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa. The Big Six were inducted during the annual ceremony held on a stage behind the Clark Sports Center before a crowd of approximately 48,000.
David Ortiz knows there are bound to be many trade rumors in the coming days, with the Red Sox in the rare position of perhaps being a seller leading into Thursday's 4 p.m. ET non-waiver Trade Deadline. But he cringes when he hears his longtime teammate Jon Lester mentioned in trade talks.
Frank Thomas did promise during Saturday's interview session that his Hall of Fame induction speech was all about thanks. But why did the "Big Hurt" feel the need to point out so many on Sunday in Cooperstown? The idea that no man is an island emerges as the most precise answer.
One of David Ortiz's signature bat flips brought David Price's early-season criticism of the Boston slugger back to the forefront Sunday at Tropicana Field. But this time, it was Price's teammate Chris Archer who wasn't happy with Ortiz's actions.

David Freese's solo home run in the eighth broke a late stalemate and lifted the Angels to a 2-1 win over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon at Angel Stadium.
Bobby Cox, the great manager of the Atlanta Braves, spent part of his Hall of Fame induction speech on Sunday putting his career in perspective. Sure, he'd love to go down in history as one of the smartest managers who ever lived, but not if it robs him of a chance to be self-deprecating.
