You've got to crawl before you learn how to walk and so the Orioles have finally won a game against the Yankees this season, which was also Buck Showalter's 1,000th managerial win, the first win in 14 starts for Brian Matusz and included the first hit for Nick Johnson in 30 at bats.

Steve Melewski: Finally back in the win column: Matusz pitches Orioles past New York This guy...always with the running tallies.
