The bottom line

It was a good week to trot out that timeworn baseball cliche about playing .500 on the road. The Orioles bounced back from two straight losses to the Rays to hammer Matt Moore and go home even for the six-game trip. That's OK, especially when they were looking at the possibility of a three-game sweep at the Trop with an 8-1 pitcher taking the mound against them, but the O's have reached the point where they're not happy splitting anything with anybody.
