Lets relive some of the crazy moments from Friday night's Orioles-Yankees game

Things got "weird" on Friday night in the Bronx when the Yankees hosted the Orioles for a 14-inning extravaganza-- and it didn't take long for the game to grab our attention. 
Let's relive it, shall we?
In the top of the first on a 1-0 pitch, Manny Machado smacked a ball over the left-field fence, because he does that:

Brett Gardner scored on a Giancarlo Stanton single in the bottom of the first. Then, in the top of the third, Machado hit another home run in the same spot:

Followed by a Chris Davisbomb -- and everyone seemed to be happy about it:

CC Sabathia left the game due to an injured hip in the bottom of the fifth and was replaced by Tommy Kahnle:

Good news, however. Following the game, it was reported the MRI came back negative. 
There was then a rundown situation in the bottom of the sixth (of course there was) with Stanton caught in a pickle between third base and home plate:

Stanton was ruled out.
Are you still with us?
It was then Sir Didi Gregorius' turn to smack a ball over the fence. And he did just that with ease:

We finally reached the ninth inning, but that didn't mean the game was anywhere close to being over. Oh no -- there was quite a bit more baseball to be played.
Pedro Álvarez entered the game in the top in the 10th to replace Danny Valencia, and he hit a line drive single to left field.
Fast forward to the bottom of the 11th, and there was a play that still leaves us scratching our heads.
Gregorius ran home on a wild pitch by Mychal Givens, and, well -- this happened:

On to the 13th we go ...
Aaron Judge made a fantastic robbery play over the outfield wall on a Caleb Joseph fly ball:

Then, it was the final inning. Alvarez smacked a go-ahead grand slam to right-center. The O's were up 7-3 over the Yankees in the bottom of the 14th. The Yankees couldn't do anything to put them back on the board, and the game was over.
It was an evening of crazy plays and #weirdbaseball and we loved every moment of it.
