Orioles Win Series

O's WIN 8-3! They were down early but Reynolds' 3-run dong turned a 3-1 Yanks lead into 5-3 Orioles. Jeter had a chance with the tying runs on but hit into a tailor-made DP to end the 7th. The O's also ended the previous inning on an amazing DP. Then Lowe came in, and, mission accomplished! He allowed a hit and then walked in a run on the two batters he faced. He was one of 247 Yankee pitchers on the day. Then a Markakis 2-run single wrapped it up. A "Let's Go O's" was heard at Yankee Stadium!

So they really did show up all weekend, with only a TYR (typical Yankee rally, with a walk tying the game and error giving them the lead) between them and the sweep, which would have meant a tie for first in the AL East right now.

But we'll have to settle for the Yanks holding a slim 2-game lead with just about a month left. Rays are 3.5 back with their win today. O's go to Toronto and the Yanks go to Tampa this week, before the Yanks and O's meet up again next weekend in Balty.

Red Sox only gave up 2 runs before the first out today! I'd say the score of the game right now but I'm pretty sure it'll change by the time I finish the sentence so what's the point?

Congrats to the PawSox, who clinched the wild card yesterday. Yes, a team called the Red Sox is in the playoffs!
