FROM THE BLOG OVERLORD: June 30, 2009: A Night to Remember
It was on June 30, 2009 that the Orioles completed the greatest comeback in franchise history, and it was one of the most fun games I can remember watching. After falling behind 10-1 to the Boston Red Sox, the Orioles scored five runs each in the seventh and eighth innings to come all the way back and defeat the hated divisional rivals 11-10.

Orioles starters are putting their bullpen counterparts in jeopardy -
"It has been more than two weeks since an Orioles starter went seven innings. It last happened on June 10 when Jake Arrieta managed to keep his pitch count down long enough to hand the ball over to the bullpen before the eighth inning, and it was the only time an Orioles starter has lasted past the sixth inning in June. No wonder the Baltimore bullpen has allowed more run earned runs than any other team in baseball."
