O's Take First Game From World Champs.
Last year the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series. Yesterday the Orioles beat the Philadelphia Phillies. That means the O's are World Champions!!... well not quite, but suck it Phillies, how does it feel to lose to a last place team?
Rich Hill did it all for the Orioles yesterday, giving up 2 runs in 6 2/3 innings and driving in the go ahead run in the 2nd inning with an RBI single. Matt Wieters, Nick Markakis, and Aubrey Huff all added RBI doubles and Nolan Reimold homered as the O's won 7-2.
Today the O's send red-hot Brad Bergesen to the mound in an attempt to win another series against NL opponents. He will be opposed by impressive rookie J.A. Happ, in a game that has the makings of a pitchers duel.
Tune in fans. The O's are slowly becoming watchable again.
