The Orioles take the field tonight looking for their fifth consecutive win. Wouldn't that be something!

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

If the first-place Orioles can avoid the rain and outplay the Astros, they'll have a five-game winning streak.

Some may say that mentioning that the Orioles are in first place is silly considering it's only May 10th. And maybe you're right. But I spent so many years being unable to say that (or even, second-place Orioles or third-place Orioles), that I'm going to say it every day that it's true. And while there are 129 games to be played and the Orioles won't win them all, all they need to do to stay in first place for at least one more day is win tonight.

Let's go O's!
