Welcome to Wednesday, Camden Chatters. It’s been a rough time in Birdland lately and things won’t get any easier with a weekend road trip to Houston to play the team with the best record in baseball. But first they have to face the Twins in a day game and try to avoid being swept.

If you missed last night’s game, you missed a pretty good pitching performance from Dylan Bundy and not much else. Check out all the details in Randy DeCleene’s game recap.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have one Orioles birthday buddy, old time shortstop Willy Miranda. Miranda was born May 24, 1926 in Cuba and played the final five seasons of his nine-year career with the Orioles. Miranda couldn’t hit (career OPS+ of 55) but he was an outstanding fielder. You can read more about him at the SABR Bio Project.
