All things consider (Grade: A-)

The Orioles desperately needed to have a week like this. They won five of six games in spite of a so-so overall performance in the home series against the struggling A’s. There’s still a mountain to climb if they want to get to the postseason, as evidence by how many games they had to win to pick up just a couple of games in the wild card race, but a big performance during the home stand that starts tonight could put them right up there. Nice to get three against the Red Sox, but they’re still too far ahead for any realistic hope of competing for the division title.
