This is written by Johnny Goodtimes, best known for his pursuit of trivia throughout the Philadelphia area.

Considered by most historians to be one of the 5 greatest teams in MLB history, the 1929 A’s crushed Gehrig, Ruth, and the rest of the Yankees...
As deflating as Game One was, this O's team wasn't one to quit.
"Even if tonight's game wasn't literally a must-win, going to New York down 2-0 would have been mighty troublesome for the Orioles. They needed a good start from Wei-Yin Chen, and to actually score some runs against long-time O's nemesis Andy Pettitte."

The Baltimore Orioles could never have imagined their first home playoff game in 15 years ending with a dismal performance by their most reliable pitcher.
Jim Johnson gave up five runs in the ninth inning, and the Orioles lost to the New York Yankees 7-2 Sunday night in the opener of their AL division series.
Russell Martin hit a tiebreaking homer leading off the ninth, and CC...
The story of the Baltimore Orioles making the playoffs this year, something they haven’t done in fifteen years has been a good one.
Tonight the Orioles played the first game of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees. The game was tied 2-2 until the top of the 9th inning when Russell Martin hit a home run off of Orioles closer Jim Johnson.
