The Orioles WON! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
But more importantly, I was there! My first live win of the season, Ugh, I swear it feels as though a large weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It was a great night all around. Adam Jones continued his turn-around with a 3-5 night including a home run, and two RBI. Miguel Tejada was the star of the evening with a 4-hit 4RBI night including a three-run homer as the Orioles cruised to a 11-5 win over the Marlins.
People have been riding Jones all year, with reason, but i think it is absolutely great to see how he has turned things around so far. His batting average is up over .270 for the first time since April, his OPS is up over 700 and he is driving the ball. Yes, Adam still needs to work the count more and walk more often and his OBP is still absurdly low, but I think that will come with time. Right now I just want to sit back and watch Adam continue this nice streak, and hope it continues for another month or so.
