Jeremy Conn: Orioles Must Finish Strong
The Orioles needed to find a way to win tonight’s game against the Blue Jay’s and regroup on the day off.
Right now everybody is scoreboard watching and if you are taking notes, here is who we are rooting for.
We are pulling for Texas to win all of their games from here on out. They have 3 against the Angels and 4 against the A’s. After tonight Oriole fans will become Blue Jay fans as they will take on the Yankees, and then Red Sox fans after the O’s next series. The Rays travel to play the White Sox for a 4 game set, so hopefully the Sox will be in the Cat Birds seat. Also the Angels have a few games left against Seattle, so we are also pulling for the Mariners. The most important thing is the O’s finishing strong.
With 7 games left, you would think 5-2 and maybe 4-3 would get you in the playoffs. The pitching has been pretty good, but the bats need to pick it up every day.
