Somewhere over the Warehouse…and the rainbow!

Matt Wieters gets tested on the first play of the game. He goes 0-fer at the plate. Brad Bergesen goes eight strong innings. Luke Scott jacks two home runs onto the flag court and drives in five runs. The stadium is packed with orange hopefuls, young and old, and the weather even held off as the Orioles beat the Tigers 7-2 in one of the more “Magical” nights in the history of Camden Yards.

Dave Trembley said it perfectly: “Good for our team. Good for our fans. Good for our city.”

That about sums it up.

And truly is a blog where a picture is worth a thousand words:
