Buck Showalter Three-For-Three as Manager So Far; O's Sweep Angels

It’s three games into the Buck Showalter era and Orioles have won each one.

Last night, the Orioles swept the three game series with the Angels as they won, 5-4, thanks to a walk-off hit by Cesar Izturis in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The difference in the team during the Angels series has been obvious – the young starting pitching has been a lot better, the Orioles are hitting in the clutch, performing with runners in scoring position and aside from the bullpen faltering in game two, the team has been solid.

The Orioles nearly blew Wednesday’s and last night’s game – but hey, at this point, win any way you can.

After the train wreck we’ve all seen this season as fans, it’s nice to have a little win streak going into a tough weekend series against the Chicago White Sox.

Then again, the Angels are not nearly good as they have been in years’ past and look to be nothing more than a .500 team.
