How ’bout ‘dem O’s? (UPDATED)
Now 8-1 under Buck Showalter.
Just won their third consecutive series, for the first time since ???? I’m gonna guess 2005, but I’ll let someone else look it up.
Update: From Roch:
With a win tonight, the Orioles would complete their first three-game sweep in Cleveland since April 10-12, 1987. It also would mark their first three-game road sweep since June 19-21, 2009 in Philadelphia, and their first five-game winning streak since June 17-21, 2009.
Also with a win tonight, Buck Showalter would tie Davey Johnson for the best 10-game start as manager of the Orioles.
The Orioles have won three straight series for the first time since June 12-21, 2009 vs. Atlanta, the Mets and Philadelphia. They’ve won eight times in a nine-game span for the first time since April 22-May 2, 2005.
Brad Bergesen allowed two hits last night, the lowest total by an Orioles’ starter in Cleveland since Tom Phoebus on April 19, 1970.
Starting pitchers have put together 8 quality starts in Buck’s 9 games as manager.
The man is some sort of miracle worker. My head is spinning. I’m borderline speechless.
