The game also earned an 11.7 local rating in Baltimore, making it the highest-rated MLB game on ESPN in the market since at least '99 (as far as current records go back). There was one ESPN2 Orioles game in '04 that delivered a 12.5 local rating. Meanwhile, ESPN also earned a 1.5 overnight for the Brazil-Spain finale at the FIFA Confederations Cup.
