Join the conversation as Tilly makes his first start since throwing all nine against Kansas City. The O's will face Wandy Rodriguez as they try to take all four game from Pittsburgh this season.

It happened. Many thought it wasn't possible but, alas, it happened all the same. The Orioles played a complete baseball game and beat a team they are better than. Crush Davis reemerged and sent 1200 feet worth of home runs into the Pittsburgh night.

Tonight, the Orioles will try and beat the Pirates for the fourth and final time in 2014 (barring any World Series rematch *shiver*). We get to see Tillman on the bump and with the lumber. The Pirates send another lefty to the mound. This time it is Wandy Rodriguez, who has struggled thus far in the season.
