    Manny Machado's 14th-inning single clinches the Orioles' first non-losing season since 1997
    The Orioles’ 3-2 extra-inning win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday afternoon was a long time coming — in more ways than one. The Orioles needed 14 innings — and five hours and 14 minutes — to complete a three-game sweep of...
