It was close. Very close.
It came down to the final weekend.
But they did it!
Thanks to another spontaneous MelMo bunt (that man has playoff experience, ya know), the Orioles staged an extra-inning comeback victory against the MFY; that victory, coupled with Tampa Bay's loss to Toronto, ensured that the Orioles would avoid last place in the AL East for the ninth consecutive year since 1988.
No cellar dwelling for this special team. Congratulations O's!
