The Orioles continue to amaze with occasional timely hitting and perplexing pitching performances. I'm still not entirely sure I saw Miguel Gonzalez duel David Price to a standstill.
On this day in 1959, Hoyt Wilhelm threw 8.2 innings of no hit relief in an 18 inning marathon; in 1986, the O's and Rangers combined for three grand slams by Toby Harrah, Larry Sheets and Jim Dwyer in a 13-11 O's loss.
It's the birthday of Jim Hardin and Victor Zambrano and, while not an Oriole, John Shelby III gets a mention anyways.
