Like I said, perhaps the Orioles should play the N.L. East more often; better yet, maybe the Orioles should petition Major League Baseball to move into the N.L. East and move from the complicated arena known as the A.L. East
On Sunday, the Birds continued their winning ways and won their fifth in a row as they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 2-1, in a razor tight game. Cole Hamels struck out ten and showed why he is the ace of the Philadelphia Phillies; however, Brian Roberts -- who hit the game winning home run yesterday -- came through in the clutch with the deciding RBI in the eighth inning, and an RBI single by Jones in the sixth sent the Phillies to a sixth straight loss.
Jeremy Guthrie came through for the Orioles despite giving up Greg Dobbs in the second inning. He earned the win, his fifth and went seven strong innings and only gave up a run. Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless eighth and George Sherrill got his 15th save.
The Orioles got a series sweep of the Phillies, and despite they not having Ryan Howard or Raul Ibanez in the lineup, it's quite an accomplishment.
