Phelps gives up 9 runs as anemic Yankees are pounded by Orioles - NYPOST.com
"If there was any pretense the Yankees could duplicate the magic of April and May, when they thrived without injured stars, it vanished into the heavy Inner Harbor air Saturday night when the Orioles pummeled the Yankees, 11-3, in front of 46,607 sweaty customers." I'm enjoying the death spiral of the Yankees ALMOST as much as the Orioles winning. The fact they are coinciding is just too much joy for words.

Chris Davis hits 2 HRs as Orioles pound Yankees 11-3

Garcia opts out, signs new Minors deal with O's | orioles.com: News
"Freddy Garcia, who was optioned Monday to make room for Kevin Gausman, opted out of his contract Thursday, before signing a new Minor League deal with the Orioles." Spots starts, long relief, or maybe trade bait for the big club, and maybe even the bullpen in Norfolk. Freddy's down for whatever the O's want to do.

No O's birthdays, nothing interesting orioles-related on this date. Late game tonight, so go wear some sunscreen and go outside!
