Hopefully, tonight Mr. Till will find better luck than MiGo did last night.

A bit of a clunker last night, one might think. But I seem to recall not too long ago the O's dropping the first game of a series vs. their opponents best pitcher, only to come back and take the next two games and the series. Perhaps we'll get a little deja vu all over again....

DEMOPSTER cleaned up his game and wrung out the O's offense.

Get used to having JC Romero in the 'pen for a bit longer, friends. And Dylan Bundy says to DD, "Call me....maybe!"

Today is the birthday of old-timey baseball player Cannonball Titcomb. Also the birthday of singer and rotisserie chicken roaster Kenny Rogers. So there's that.

On this date in 1901 a bit of a kerfluffel erupted after an Orioles pitcher expectorated upon an umpire. Benches would eventually clear, fans would storm the field, and the police would be called upon to quell the mini-riot. In 1977 Brooks Robinson retired after a fantastic 23 year career. In 1999, Brady Anderson lead off both games of a double-header with a Home Run. Only the 3rd player to ever accomplish the feat.
