Happy 36th birthday, Luke Scott! Go shoot a cake or something. It is also the birthday of one-time O Dick 'Ivan' Drago.  On this date in 1961 the O's and Angels combined to use 16 pitchers over 14 innings before the Birds emerged victorious. In 1970 the O's also won a 14 inning affair, this time with the Red Sox, who lead 7-0 in the 5th. In 1988 Cal Jr.'s streak reached 1000 games. In 1999 Jesse Orosco made his MLB record 1051st appearance.
