Today is the birthday of former Oriole Allan Ramirez. Ramirez appeared in 11 games for the Orioles in 1983, the only games of his major league career.

On this day in 2012, Buck Showalter won his 1000th game as a manager, and Brian Matusz won his first game in 14 starts dating back to June 6, 2011. Between wins Matusz went 0-12 with a 10.47 ERA. And now he is in the bullpen, where he belongs.
