The Orioles will have to be satisfied with having taken three of four from the Nationals. They got not terrible starts from Ubaldo Jimenez and Wade Miley in the process and even made up some ground in the division. The Birds head to New York for the weekend to face a radically different squad than the one that nearly swept them in July. Ravaged by injuries and indifference, the Yankees have given the kids the keys to the car with some success. Catcher Gary Sanchez may actually be more than just a flavor of the month. How awful. Handle your business, boys.
