BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It came down to a nail-biter in New York Wednesday night, as the Orioles tried to take over their five game showdown with the Yankees. Orioles fans held their breath, hoping to see the O’s push ahead in the playoffs. Unfortunately, the Yankees won the game 3-2 in the 12th inning.

Meghan McCorkell has more.

Canton fans chanted “Let’s Go O’s!” during the game. Everyone held their breath, hoping for a win.

Orioles magic took over Plug Ugly’s in Canton.

“Every time I log into Facebook or talk to anyone, that’s all they can talk about: how good the O’s are,” said Liz Mergehenn.

Many here barely remember a winning O’s season.

“I was probably in second grade when that happened,” said Kelly Brown.

At Jimmy’s Seafood in Dundalk, Rodney Bolding loves the O’s so much, even his drink is orange.

“I haven’t missed a game yet,” said Bolding.

And playing the Yankees is that much sweeter for O’s fans.

“Give New York a little bit of what they’ve given us for so many years,” said Eric Bogan. “I’m ready to give it back a little bit.”

Even with the game away, Baltimore is all lit up for the O’s. Buildings downtown have been painted orange. Even City Hall got an O’s makeover.

“The Orioles team is breathing new life into a generation of baseball fans all over the city,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

“My son’s never had a chance to see the Orioles win, so now he’s interested finally,” said Rodney Carr.
