What a sweet win. You all know what happened — the Orioles finally snapped a streak of 15 consecutive Sunday losses as they beat the Los Angeles Angels, 5-2, on a overcast and rainy day in the mid-Atlantic region.
Guillermo Quiroz had three RBI’s to down Ervin Santana — who walked into the Yard with eleven wins. Olson looked great as he finally pitched to his potential, going a little more then six innings and giving the Orioles a chance to win.
George Sherrill earned his 30th save, and time will tell if he’s in an Oriole uniform by weeks’ end due to the trade deadline.
It was a great Sunday and even better to see the Orioles finally win on the Sabbath. We’ve got changes to make, moves to do — Liz was sent back to Norfolk, while Walker was activated — and whatever else, but the Orioles landed on the Worldwide Sports Leader, perhaps for all the wrong reasons — but hey, we needed the win.
Meanwhile, an old friend of ours — Sir Sidney Ponson — is getting his arse kicked in Beantown.
