Hey did you see that the Orioles won last night? They did give up five runs for the 17th straight game and are getting close to the major league record of 20, but it was actually not a feel-bad win like some others of recent days (as long as you don’t look at Chris Tillman’s line).

If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check out Randy DeCleene’s recap of the win and place your vote for Most Birdland Player. I voted Manny.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! Your big Orioles birthday buddy is Mr. Rick Sutcliffe, who has the distinction of being the first starting pitcher to appear in a game at Camden Yards. His complete-game shutout on Opening Day 1992 is a memorable game and you can catch it sometimes on MASN Classics.

Your other Orioles birthday buddies include Sandy Rleal, whose major-league career is made up of 44 games pitched in relief for the 2006 Orioles; Luis Rivera, who pitched 23 of an inning for the 2000 team; and Eddie Lopal, who finished off a 12-year career with 10 games in an Orioles uniform in 1955.
