The O's Slip The Umpires A Few Bucks, Get A Cheap Win.
The O's caught a lucky break Wednesday night when heavy rain caused their game to be called in the 6th inning while they were leading 4-1. Any good O's fan knows that their bullpen would have most assuredly blown the lead in the later innings if it were not for their good fortune.
I once again didn't get to see any of the game, but I'm venturing a guess that after the 3rd rain delay there were about 100 fans left in attendance and all of them were either drunk or stupid. I have a hard time getting excited to watch the Orioles play when the weather is nice, let along when it is in the mid 50's and raining.
The series continues tomorrow as the O's go for the exciting 2 game sweep. Judging by the forecasts, they won't have the weather to bail them out for this game, so expect a loss.
