Everything better. Control, pitching down in zone and velocity up.  He hit 93 in the 8th.  He could barely break 90 last year , ever.

Yeah. It seemed for real, not just a fluke.

Brach makes a good sub for Britton. Two down. One to go. This will be a huge win IMO if the O's pull this out.

And the way Brach is pitching it might not be automatic for Britton to return as the closer. I think it'll depend on how hurt he really is. A healthy Brach is better than an iffy Britton. Brach looks very serious in mowing down everyone he faces. That's what you want in a reliever.

Regardless of "stats", Miley gets this W in my opinion. 8 solid.

Well, this story had a much better ending than beginning.

I thought the same. He is not hesitant. He attacks from the first pitch and wastes no time between pitches. He looks strong.

Well, unless you think it was boring. Or rag on how bad the hitters hit.

Yeah these last two wins were gutty.  Man when you pull out those kind of wins, it may be your year.

No drama Brach again.  Count me as impressed with this guy.

LOL!!  The hitters were pretty bad, but its all about winning.  Orioles going old school.  You can win and score 2 runs a game :)

This was a good one. Every win they get with Ubaldo or Miley on the mound is like theft.
The kids are alright.

As a practicing pessimist, I'm looking for a reason to doubt the Orioles.

 

But the hell with that. I've had a hard week, and I've had several adult beverages, and I'm gonna indulge meself in some optimism. This is the good stuff:

 

If Miley and UJ can echo the kind of dominance they've shown the past two nights, then right there the biggest concern about the Orioles -- the rotation -- is a bit .... tempered. If the biggest worry in the nonce is whether Gausman can command his off-speed stuff, then I'd say we're not too bad off.

 

BB looks like he's ready to be a closer. Get Zach back, and you've got the 21st century version of the Yankees in the 90s, with Rivera and Wetteland.

 

Schoop's pitch recognition seems better to me. Of course, that a totally subjective judgement and is probably wrong. But what if ...

 

Hardy's days as a 20 HR guy may be over, but that doesn't mean he's not a serviceable bat out of the 9 (well, tonight, 8) hole. He made good contact on that 1-2 to drive in what turned out to be the winning run. Maybe it wouldn't wow Statcast, but it got the job done.

 

Manny isn't exactly setting MLB on fire so far. Yet the O's still have the best record in baseball.

 

Taking 2 of 3 from the Reds, who are (were) dong well, playing BS NL rules, after getting blown out the first game when your (ostensibly) best pitcher of the series got rocked, makes the choir sing in tune.

I have no hope for Ubaldo. I'm not letting that clown sucker me in. Miley however might actually be better this year.

No one in the national liberal media. They all predicted Hillary to win too.

There is a wide gulf between hope...and faith. I have hope in UJ. Faith? That's a horse of a different color! :P
