Doormats No More

The Baltimore Orioles came into Fenway Park last night with a 27-17 record under new manager Buck Showalter and showed why they are no longer to be taken for granted any more by anybody: a 4-2 win over Daisuke Matsuzaka and the Red Sox.

They came within one pitch of winning the series from New York over the weekend, and the O's broke through with two in the seventh to break a 2-2 tie. The Evil Dice-K made yet another appearance at the Fens, walking five with two of them scoring. When he starts nibbling like he did last night, he's dead.

The Red Sox have now split the first 16 meetings with the Orioles this season. You can point to the injuries all you want as to why the Sox aren't going to the postseason, but their record against the inferior clubs of the AL is an even bigger reason why the golf game begins for the Sox on October 4th.
