Back to .500

"As New York Yankees batter Curtis Granderson (L) warms up, New York Yankees batter Derek Jeter (R) looks up to the sky as rain, sleet falls before the start of the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles during their MLB baseball game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland, April 11, 2012."

As I mentioned last week, Major League Baseball is back in full-swing and I was at Oriole Park at Camden Yards covering the New York Yankees Vs. Baltimore Orioles series for Reuters in Baltimore, Md.

Coming into the series, a win-less Yankees team was facing an undefeated Orioles club. To say the least, it was probably a bit surprising for both teams to be on the opposite end of spectrum.

The Yankees would go on to sweep the Orioles in three continually cold and extra inning nights, putting both ball clubs at even.

While there were some amazing plays in the series, whether I had, missed or thought weren't important in this edit, baseball is often about quieter moments that may seem mundane by others. Actions by players say a lot about a game or series in just one picture. I'm often drawn to these moments as they are overlooked by others.

These are some of my favorites from the series. I certainly had more peak action moments, but these frame before and/or after I thought communicated better to the viewer about the three-day series.
