Found June 03, 2013 on Oriole Post:
The Orioles had a very good weekend on the field, taking two of three from the Detroit Tigers in dramatic fashion. They took on another favored World Series contender and held their own. As the Tigers have learned, any lead you build up against the Orioles isn’t safe. On Sunday, the Birds came back from behind, using a three-run seventh inning to erase a 2-0 deficit and defeated the Tigers, 4-2. Baltimore earned their 32nd win of the season and Chris Davis hit his league leading 20th home run in the seventh inning that started a furious rally. Danny Valencia tied the game with a bloop single, and then Nate McLouth plated in a run to give the Orioles their first lead of the afternoon, 3-2. Alexi Casilla raised the score for the Orioles to 4-2 as he drilled a liner to left, plating in Chris Davis. Jim Johnson threw a scoreless ninth inning for his 22nd save. The story of the game on Sunday centered around pitcher Kevin Gausman. After being knocked aro...
