Boom goes the bird

The Orioles lead the Pirates 8-3 in the seventh thanks in part to the power of Jake Fox.
Yes, Jake Fox. Fox has been a part-time player in three seasons with the Cubs, Athletics and Orioles, and has shown some power - 18 home runs in 428 career at-bats.
Today, however, he hit his sixth and seventh home runs of the SPRING. His first, off Pirates starter Ross Ohlendorf, bounced off the roof of the Boys and Girls Club in left.
His second shot, off reliever Scott Olsen, landed just right of the building. Both were two-run shots, giving Fox seven home runs and 12 RBIs in 16 games this spring.
Not too shabby...
