That was the best game they played all season

Wow ... just incredible.

The pitching was incredible. Saunders keeps them in the game, O'Day shuts the door, Matusz strikes out Hamilton on 3 pitches, and although JJ was shaky he got the final 3 outs.

Offensively they came up with multiple sacrifices and multiple clutch hits. Men on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out and they score both of them ... that's winning baseball.

The only blemish was Reynolds' error but they got a double play the next batter so it didn't make a difference.

Incredible ... Orioles Magic!!!!

Some other season highlights for me:
-- 1-0 win in Tampa Tuesday night
-- 3-1 win in LA on Pearce three run hr and solid pitching by Gonzo
-- Huge win in Oakland recently.
-- Coming back from 5-0 to beat NY
-- Memorable extra inning marathon wins in Seattle and Boston
8-)

Forgotten in my excitement last night was O'Days error which was erased by a groundout from Andrus and Matusz striking out Hamilton on 3 straight fastballs.

Everybody in the game contributed to the victory. What a well played game.
