O's Beat Bucs During Throwback Night, 9-6

At this point last year, if the Orioles were behind by five runs in let's say the third inning, a game would be over. However, with this team's new collection on the roster, anything can happen -- thus, never consider a Baltimore Oriole game over until the last out.

With 47,000 plus on hand in a full house at the Yard, and with the Orioles in throwback uniforms on hand, plus former Oriole manager Earl Weaver and third baseman Doug DeCinces honoring the 1979 team, you knew there was potential for the night to be memorable.

For the 18th time, the Orioles once again came back from being down and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 9-6. A big night from Melvin Mora, Brian Roberts, Melvin Mora and Luke Scott's homer helped Brian Burres recover from a horrible start to get his fifth win. He but got the win after six innings of work, in which he gave up six runs on eight hits.

Despite the Pirates jumping on the Orioles in the first two innings, the Baltimore offense came back and brought Oriole Magic back to the Yard for yet another night.

Does anyone think the cartoon bird on the cap of either the 60's, 70-80's should make a return, at least maybe Saturdays, Sundays at home, or better yet all the time?
