On this date in 1966, the O's hit back-to-back pinch hit home runs vs. the Red Sox in the 9th to tie the game up at 2-2. They would go on to win 3-2 in 12 innings. In 2011, Joe Girardi and the Yankees throw a fit over the O's proposal for how to deal with make-up games as a result of the impending landfall of Hurricane Irene. In 2012 the O's acquire Joe Saunders from the Diamondbacks.
