A Win...

Finally, the worst losing streak for the Baltimore Orioles in two decades has come to an end. It was painful to see, and they've gotten a lot grief for it, nevertheless, they won against the Rays, 3-2.

Chris Waters was solid in a spot start as he went five innings and allowed only a run -- courtesy of a Ben Zobrist solo homer (his 27th) in the 4th inning.

Of course, things naturally got interesting in the ninth as Jim Johnson came into the game to wrap it all up for Baltimore, and had a bit of trouble. He allowed a few runners to reach base, and Pat Burrell plated in a run with a sacrifice fly to bring the Rays within a run. However, the Orioles sealed the win as Akinori Iwamura grounded out to Johnson. The save for Johnson was his 9th of the season.

Baltimore took the lead, 1-0, in the first inning as Nick Markakis plated in Cesar Izutris with an infield RBI-single, and then they scored twice in the fourth as both Melvin Mora and Jeff Fiorentino had RBI-singles.

It was good to see the O's finally win, because things were getting horrible. I guess at this point, they just need to finish the season strong and avoid 100 losses.
