Back To The Cellar

The Orioles pulled a "late-90s Yankees" tonight. Every time we came back to tie them or take the lead, they immediately came back and did the same to us in the top of the next inning. Right down to the 10th, when they scored 2 right after Salty's dramatic 2-run game-tying dong with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the bottom of the 9th.

Lester was so-so, but left with the tying run on base. At which point Atchison and Albers shit the bed to give the O's the lead in the 7th. Aceves gave up the winning runs in the 10th, but he did pitch a 1-2-3 9th to keep it within two for Salty's heroics.

So we stay 3 out of first, but we're alone in the cellar again. With the Rays, O's, and Yanks bunched up at the top, we can only gain a half game max on first place tomorrow night. Chen for them, Beckett with a perfect game for us.
