Settling the Score: Friday’s results

48 Comments

The Orioles fell one run short in their comeback attempt Thursday, but they managed to get it done last night against the Tigers, coming from six runs down for an 8-7 victory at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

After Wei-Yin Chen was knocked out of the game early, the Orioles chipped away with one run in the fourth inning and four in the fifth, including a three-run homer from Adam Jones. Manny Machado then gave the Orioles the lead in the sixth with a two-run homer. Chris Davis delivered an RBI single later on in the frame, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame.

With the win, the Orioles improved to 52-50 on the year and sit just one game back in what promises to be a crazy Wild Card race in the American League. Seven teams are within five games of the Twins right now.
