The O's won last night in Chicago by a score of 7-6, after mounting a dramatic comeback and taking advantage of a tough Bobby Jenks who was having an off night.
The Orioles came back from a four run deficit to secure the win.
Chris Ray even looked great, striking out the side in the ninth inning after being beleaguered in his past few appearances. He earned his 14th save.
Erik Bedard had so-so outing as he only went a little more than five innings and was tagged for six runs; however, the bullpen picked him up and Rob Bell got the win. Corey Patterson came through with four hits, and Millar came through in the clutch delivering an RBI single to win the game for the Birds.
Although the Orioles are nine games under .500 at 36-45, I feel a lot better about the team than I have in the past few weeks.
At this point, give Trembley a shot to manage until the end of the season. It looks like the players are responding to him and there now seems to be fight in the team – which was missing since April.
