The Battle of the Beltways is going on right now between the Orioles and the Nationals. Now one radio station is turning up the heat, airing a promo that takes several digs at Baltimore. It's WJFK 106.7 The Fan that's running the ad.

It says:

"This week two of the hottest teams in baseball meet in the Beltway Series. First, the Nats travel to Baltimore to face Manny Machado and the Orioles. Side note: Natty Boh is brewed in Georgia, and 50 percent of crabs served in Maryland are actually from Japan. Then, Baltimore brings its massive inferiority complex to D.C., a city with more jobs, a lower crime rate and a better baseball team. Hear it all on your flagship home of the Washington Nationals, Sports Radio 106.7 The Fan."

The O's have one more game in Baltimore Tuesday before playing two in D.C. The Orioles won the first game of the split series 6-4.
