    Orioles batters back up Reyes in 8-5 win over Tigers
    From the Orioles' perspective, nearly everything seemed gloomy prior to Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers. The weather was rainy and miserable, the tarp was on the field, and the forecast showed no let up in sight. Even if the game did go on as...

    Orioles battle back from five-run deficit to beat Tigers, 7-5
    After one inning of baseball at Comerica Park on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles were in a five-run hole against the Detroit Tigers. But for these Orioles, it was business as usual, not an insurmountable deficit. In the bullpen, the relievers were still...
  • Yankees leave A-Rod out of lineup for Game 5 vs. Orioles
