Today's comeback victory over the Yankees probably doesn't mean a whole lot in the greater scheme of things, but it was a great way to end the series after Friday night's heart-breaking loss and Saturday's blowout.
Mariano Rivera doesn't give it up very often, so Orioles fans have every right to savor Luke Scott's game-tying home run and his leadoff double in the 11th that set up Ty Wigginton's walkoff gapper.
The Orioles may be a world away from the Yankees from a competitive standpoint -- as I said in my column today -- but if you break down the two series between the two teams under Buck Showalter, the O's come away looking pretty good. They have split the six games, two of their three losses were in games they were leading until Nick Swisher and Alex Rodriguez hit last-gasp home runs.
Those still count as losses, but there's no question the Orioles went toe-to-toe in every game except Saturday nights.
