The Rule 5 Draft pick; worthy of a Major League roster spot, or stunting the growth of a quality prospect?
The NL East leading Mets came to visit Camden Yards for a mid-week two-game set that was split with one win by each team. In both games, the victor scored at least 10 runs, with the Mets scoring 14 in their win Wednesday night. These two games looked like football scores!
The Orioles headed into this three-game series tied for the league’s worst record with the team they were set to face, the Minnesota Twins. Now, the O’s officially have the worst record in the majors.
Finally, the Orioles played someone in the A.L. East other than the Red Sox or Yankees. The Tampa Bay Rays came to town for a three-game set, their first three meetings this season.
The Yankees came into Baltimore to reek havoc on the Birds, and they did just that. Well, in the first two games at least.
The Orioles paid a visit to beautiful Citi Field in New York, as the O’s and Mets took part in a short two-game interleague series, one that featured a fantastic pitcher’s duel in game one and the return of “The Dark Knight” to his old stomping grounds in game two.
The Yankees came to visit Camden Yards for the first time this season, and it was a hard fought series for the O’s, who came away with two separate one-run victories in this set.
The Orioles had their hands full this weekend, as the red hot Oakland Athletics made a trip to Camden Yards. The A’s entered this series on an 11-game win streak, while the O’s looked to snap a six-game losing streak to the A’s.
