June 24, 2011

BALTIMORE (AP) — Derrek Lee led off the bottom of the 12th inning with a home run to give the Baltimore Orioles a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.
Lee sent a 1-2 pitch from Jose Arredondo (0-3) into the seats in left field to end the marathon. It was Lee’s fifth home run, the first since May 8.
Cincinnati missed a chance to take the lead in the top of the 12th when Joey Votto was thrown out at the plate trying to score from first on a two-out double by Jay Bruce.

Legislative dilemma

Pierce said that an amendment has been proposed to add onto Ohio House Bill 153, The Ohio biennial operations budget bill, which will declare the drug as a controlled substance in the Ohio Revised Code (ORC).
