The Orioles rallied to beat the Red Sox last night 6-3 after a spectacular inside-the-park homerun by Robert Andino, who is by far the most improved Oriole this season. The win drops the Red Sox to a tie with the Tampa Bay Rays for the American League Wild Card with two left to play. The announced crowd last night was 21,786, but from watching on tv and listening on the radio it sounded like there were WAY too many Red Sox fans in our Camden Yards.
Sure the Orioles have been eliminated from the postseason, and our record is less than stellar (68-90), but they've won 6 out of the last 9 games, and finish up the season at home against the Sox.
So start spreading the word in the Baltimore blosphere, go down to Camden Yards and get tickets for tonight and/or tomorrow. Let's pack Camden Yards with as much orange and black, so we can give our O's a real home field advantage these last two games. We can still remind the Red Sox that we're still a dangerous team, because right now their postseason fate is in the Orioles hands! This is Birdland, let's fill it. You know I'll be there!
