Taylor Teagarden stroked a pinch-hit RBI single to right in the 18th inning to help give the Baltimore Orioles a 4-2 comeback victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
The win allowed the Orioles (84-64) to pull within a percentage point of the Yankees (83-63) for the lead in the AL East. The Yankees were rained out Tuesday and will play a split double-header with Toronto on Wednesday.
Baltimore maintained a three-game lead over the Los Angeles Angels for the wild-card spot. The Angels beat Texas in Anaheim Tuesday, 11-3.
Nate McLouth opened the 18th with a walk off Lucas Luetge (2-2). With McLouth breaking toward second, J.J. Hardy sent a single through the right-side hole. McLouth continued onto third.
Teagarden then lifted his game-winner down the right-field line. Hardy later scored on Mark Reynolds' fielder's choice.

Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Tommy Hunter was on the receiving end of a not-so-nice of a gift from high above, courtesy of some members of the winged animal kingdom during Tuesday’s game against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. While warming up in the 16th inning of a marathon of a game (one the O’s [...]
The Baltimore Orioles are throwing 19-year-old pitching prospect Dylan Bundy into the middle of a pennant race.
Baltimore recalled Bundy from Double-A Bowie on Wednesday. The right-hander will provide depth in the bullpen for the Orioles, who played an 18-inning game against the Mariners on Tuesday night and have an upcoming doubleheader against Toronto on Monday.

A Winning Season
It’s been a long time for Orioles fans, but the O’s finally have a winning season
It has been 15 years, but the drought is mathematically over. The Baltimore Orioles will end this regular season with a winning record. The Orioles got their 82nd win on Sunday and look to continue to fight for the AL East division lead, but I wanted to focus on the winning...
After Wednesday's 18-inning marathon win over the Mariners, Orioles pitcher Tommy Hunter emerged with the victory. During that relief appearance –– where he pitched two innings –– he made the Oriole bird logo stitched on baseball cap proud. As it turns out, Hunter also received a good luck charm from a real bird Wednesday. While Hunter was in the bullpen, a bird left...
Well, the Baltimore Orioles seemingly are now a team of destiny. They’ve pulled out amazing win after another, and some of them seem utterly incomprehensible. One night after their amazing 18-inning win over the Mariners, they did at again this morning.
Once again, the Orioles played an extra inning game – this time, only 11 innings – and they defeated the Mariners again...
Few things get baseball fans more excited than the opportunity to begin taking an extraordinary young talent for granted, so baseball circles are abuzz right now with talk of the Orioles’ promotion of top prospect Dylan Bundy. It didn’t at any point appear as if Bundy would see the majors in 2012, so this news comes as a surprise, but few were also counting on the Orioles to...

Adam Jones was done. After playing 29 innings of baseball in 24-plus hours, the former Mariners prospect had enough. He launched a 385-foot homer in the 11th inning Wednesday that gave the Baltimore Orioles a 3-1 win and a series sweep at Seattle. The victory marked the 15th consecutive extra-inning win for Baltimore, and it kept the Orioles within a half-game of first place...
The Baltimore Orioles and Seattle Mariners are giving fans plenty of free baseball.
A night after playing a 5 hour, 44 minute, 18-inning marathon, the Orioles and Mariners went to extra innings again on Wednesday night. The teams were tied at 1-1 after nine innings.
The Orioles and Mariners both used eight pitchers in Tuesday night's game, won 4-2 by the Orioles. On Wednesday...
The Baltimore Orioles initially had said that they would not
promote their top pitching prospect, right-hander Dylan Bundy. A
pennant race and an 18-inning game have a way of changing a
teamâs best-laid plans.
The Orioles pulled the trigger on a potentially impactful post-season move by calling up the 19-year-old phenom Dylan Bundy. Electric stuff who projects to be a #1 rotation guy will provide a new weapon for Buck Showalter down the stretch and potentially in the playoffs (although not on the roster by the playoff deadline to be added, there are legal exemptions that can get him on...
