The Orioles' "fun" night

After the Orioles' 6-5 win Saturday night, manager Buck Showalter characterized the game as such: "Fun, a lot of fun."

Raise your hand if you thought the Orioles would go up 5-0 on Justin Verlander.

Raise your hand if you thought Verlander would serve up Matt Angle's first major-league homer -- on the fourth pitch of the game.

Or that Angle would win the game on a squeeze bunt, a run that was set up by rookie Kyle Hudson's heady decision to go from first to third on a wild pitch.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed the Tigers to get back into the game, but he avoided his 18th loss, too, so that was good.

With a first-inning single, Vladimir Guerrero also tied the baseball's hits record for Dominican-born players with 2,586.

Yeah, the Orioles were pretty excited after that game.

"A lot of good things happened, I'm lucky to be a part of it and get to look at it and watch those things," Showalter said. "We had a great seat for some good things tonight."
