The Orioles stopped their losing streak at two and will go for the short two-game sweep tonight. Until then we have some links for you.

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Mornings after the Orioles win are always so much nicer than mornings after they lose, don’t you agree? If you missed last night’s walk-off win or just want to re-live the magic, check out Randy DeCleene’s recap and vote in the MBP poll! I was at the game wearing my Jonathan Schoop shirt, and Schoop hit two home runs! So I voted for him.

Some early morning news if you missed it is that the Orioles will be calling up Edwin Jackson before today’s game. Mark has those details for you. All I have for you are some links:

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have three Orioles birthday buddies, though none are especially exciting. Chris Richard, dark days utility man who play for the Orioles from 2000-2002, turns 43 today. Journeyman relief pitcher Heathcliff Slocumb, who played for eight teams in his ten year career, turns 51. And a happy 73rd birthday to Roger Nelson, who pitched in 19 games for the 1968 Orioles.

On this day in 2010 the Orioles drafted Manny Machado. That was a good day.
