There have been some instances where I've spoken too soon, but my last item takes the cake. I didn't see any way the Orioles were going to rebound after that, even though they chipped away and got two runs back in the eighth. When Matt Lindstrom got the second out of the ninth with no one on base, I would have bet the house that the game was going to be over in a matter of seconds.
Not my house, of course. I would have bet someone else's. I'm not stupid. But give the Orioles hitters credit for an amazing comeback, no matter what happens from here on out. Jim Johnson is in the game and Hanley Ramirez due up third in the inning, but I'm not going to rule anything out with the resilience this team has shown over the past week.
The O's came back against KRod on Thursday night. Came back on Saturday night in Philadelphia. And came back from three runs down tonight after they were down to their last out with nobody on base.
Remember, five days ago, the Orioles were 0 for 34 in games they trailed after the eighth inning. They've won two of those since then. This one, we'll just have to wait and see.
