Good morning, one and all. It's nice waking up after a series win, isn't it? Much nicer than waking up after Jim Johnson blowing a save, that's for sure. The Orioles seem to be back in the groove, and tonight we get to watch the their top prospect (non-injured division) make his major league debut. Break out the powdered donuts for Kevin Gausman!

The writer makes a mistake in where they were traveling from, but really you just need to look at these photos that Adam Jones posted on Twitter.

Orioles GIFs | Twitter
Those of you who read the GIFs of the Week post know about our GIFs only Twitter feed, but if you haven't checked it out, it's a must follow. Aaron posted a number of awesome Chris Dickerson GIFs from Tuesday's game and Dickerson himself replied saying thanks.

On this day in 1999, the Orioles scored 10 runs in the first inning against the Texas Rangers. Brady Anderson, king of the HBP, took one for the team twice in the inning.

Happy birthday to former Oriole Mike Gonzalez and to Camden Chat contributor twistedlogic! Haha, twistedlogic is birthday buddies with Mike Gonzalez.
