Well Orioles fans it’s not a game 7 but as close as it gets. Game 5 Friday in the Bronx, Yankees Stadium vs. a true Ace C.C. Sabathia. That’s a task, a daunting one at that. Jason Hammel on the hill but the question is where are the collective bats?

No one is scoring in this series really so maybe it’s just the vibe of things. Nate McLouth owned both sides of the 5th inning with a solo shot in the top and a great catch coupled with doubling off Russell Martin in the bottom. It’s pretty remarkable how well both teams have been pitching but even more so considering the O’s staff.

I want to say that at this point everything is gravy for this 2012 bunch from Baltimore but I want a big game 5 win too.
