The Orioles finish off "the Gauntlet" 9-6. Good stuff. On to Kansas City and then Washington for a battle of some of the most hyped prospects of the last decade.

Sounds like someone put Icy-Hot in Stephen Strasburg’s jock | HardballTalk Flash forward: Jim Palmer's keys to the game...

On this day in 1954, Don Larsen salvaged a split against the Yankees in a doubleheader drawing a record 46,796 to Memorial Stadium. In 1965, Jim Palmer picked up his first win keyed by his own home run off of Jim Bouton; Palmer was released by the Orioles exactly 19 years later. In a 1999 rout of the Rangers, Mike Bordick has 4 hits and Albert Belle hits two home runs; no starter has less than two hits. In 2000, while serving as coaches for the Dodgers, Rick Dempsey and John Shelby become involved in a melee with Cubs fans after one takes Chad Kreuter's batting helmet and hits him in the back of the head.

It's the birthday of Ivanon Coffie and Nick Bierbrodt.
