BALTIMORE (WJZ) — On this date in Orioles history, Delmon Young’s playoff magic lifted the Orioles to a 2-0 series lead in the ALDS.

Trailing the Detroit Tigers 5-4 in the bottom of the eighth with one out and the bases loaded, Young ripped a double into the left-field corner to score Nelson Cruiz, Steve Pearce and J.J. Hardy.

The three-RBI double gave the Orioles a 6-5 lead headed into the ninth for closer Zach Britton to slam the door shut and secure a victory.

The Orioles went onto win the series but fell to the Kansas City Royals in the ALCS.
