The Baltimore Orioles saved their magical season in New York with their backs against the wall Thursday night.
The Orioles had their backs against the wall heading into Game Two of the ALDS against the Yankees at Camden Yards Monday night.
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.
Dylan Bundy pitched a scoreless inning in a somewhat uneventful Orioles loss.
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.
The Orioles waited until the ninth inning to get on the scoreboard Tuesday night in Seattle. They waited another nine innings to score again. And that was good enough.
Chris Davis homered in the Orioles 3-2 loss against the AL Wild Card leading A’s.
