Everything is awesome.

Does everyone feel a little better? After a terrible first game out of the break, the Orioles rebounded nicely to take a road series from the Tigers. Jonathan Schoop was a monster at the plate and made some great plays in the field, Chris Tillman looked like a different person, Adam Jones showed signs of shaking off his July swoon and Manny Machado continued to be awesome. A guy could get used to that. The O's are off today, but their road trip continues with potentially crucial stops this week in New York and Tampa.

On this day in 1993, Ben McDonald tossed a one hitter and Harold Baines homered as the first place O's shutout the Royals 7-0. In 2001, the Howard Street Tunnel fire claimed another game as public safety concerns forced the O's to postpone another game in their series against the Angels.
