Ok seriously who are these guys and what have they done with our Orioles from the past 14 years?

So far to date this team has showed us they are true competitors by hanging around late in games and despite not always winning they still manage to make some noise late and at least show us they are giving it all they have.

But back-to-back come from behind wins in the 7th inning or later???

Two more extra-inning wins in three days?

Now that’s impressive.

Never in my time as diehard Os fan have I seen this team play with so much gut and determination late in games. This team actually believes they can win every game and they should anyway with top notch players like JJ Hardy, Adam Jones, and Matt Wieters not to mention a bullpen that has been lights out since the start of the season; Hell, even Kevin Gregg has been a shutdown guy his past handful of appearances; if that doesn’t say Orioles Magic I don’t know what will.

Buck really has these guys believing and its paying off. It seems the past’s regular trend of giving up 5 runs in the first three innings and then sending in a relief guy to do mop up duty while the offense dogs out the final 6 innings is thankfully out the window. Not this season…Buck would have their heads. Guys aren’t showing any quit – they are hustling late and its paying off. Just look at Ryan Flaherty’s game tying run scored in the bottom of the ninth on Wednesday where he just beat out the tag at home to send the game into extras, where again the clutch bat of Adam Jones reared its head as he blasted a 2 run shot that would prove to be the game wining home run.

The Orioles are doing enough the small things right to win these games. Good base running, situational hitting, quality starts from pitchers and shutdown relief from the bullpen. If they can keep this up I see no reason why they cant shake things up late in the season with possible playoff spots up for grabs, and man how awesome would that be?!

These guys are playing great for this city so lets all get out to the Yard and cheer them on. Oriole magic is making a comeback and we all have to do our part in supporting these guys who seem to really want to win for their city.
