Hard to get TOO excited about beating the Astros, but happy to see our new Bud get off on the good foot at OPACY. This weekend, the Orioles get to face the Mariners before heading off on a West Coast swing of the interleague variety. The Mariners are coming off a somewhat humiliating sweep at the hands of Boston, but were in the midst of an eight game winning streak last week...so, yeah. No Felix. No Iwakuma...but Saund-o vs. Chen Sunday!

Buck Showalter thought his comments about the Yankees were off-the-record | HardballTalk It was an eventful day for Buck as his comments about Alex Rodriguez and Matt Wieters sort of took on a life of their own. To some Buck expressed what we've all been thinking. To others...well, fuhgeddaboudit.

On this day in 1964, the Orioles eked out a win at Kansas City 8-7, despite a muffed call that ruled a Brooks Robinson foul pole shot fair. In 1995, despite being one hit, the Orioles prevailed 1-0 thanks to a Harold Baines solo home run and a four hitter from Mike Mussina. Although still theoretically in the hunt at the time, it was the last day the Orioles would see .500 that season.
