Tampa Bay’s James Shields pitched one of the very best games in Rays history Tuesday, but he made the mistake of letting the Orioles score a run.
Cobb (W, 11-9) gave up just one run on two hits through seven innings, outpitching O’s lefty Wei-Yin Chen (L, 12-11), who hasn’t won since August 19.
The Orioles wrapped up September very hot. Dangerously hot. Almost TOO hot. How hot is that? Too hot for flight. More on that in a moment, but first, let’s talk about your playoff-bound squad.
My friend Gary and I were staying home that night and his Grandmother was in charge on Aug. 13, 1969. Evidently there wasn’t much on TV that night so we were going to listen to the Orioles-Athletics game on the radio.
The Orioles and Red Sox have met numerous times at Camden Yards in September in games with playoff implications. Implications for one of the teams, anyway, and the Orioles haven’t been that team. Oh, 2012…how Orioles Nation has waited for you.
Chris Tillman, like Gonzalez, has been a savior for this team. Since he joined the club just before the All-Star break, who’s been better? No one on this staff.
The Orioles swatted seven home runs in their 12-2 beat-down of the Toronto Blue Jays
Dylan Bundy pitched a scoreless inning in a somewhat uneventful Orioles loss.
The Orioles and Blue Jays split a doubleheader at Camden Yards Monday night, the O’s winning 4-1 in game one, and Toronto taking the nightcap 9-5.
In Sunday’s series finale at Fenway Park, the Orioles had two chances to tie the Red Sox or take the lead with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Instead, the birds fell to Boston 2-1 as the Red Sox avoid the sweep.
