Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

O's winning formula

When the Orioles win, it's usually not hard to see why. Just look at the first three lines in the O's half of today's box score and add up the performances of Brian Roberts, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis. Today, they combined for six runs, nine hits and six RBI.

Pending the end of some other games, Markakis now leads the major leagues with 21 runs scored and Jones is tied with Albert Pujols and Kevin Youkilis for second with 20.
