Don’t look now O’s fans, but our boys with the cartoon birds on their hats are only two games out of the wild card.  Yep, it’s really been a grind for the Birds since the All-Star Break, but Tampa simply refuses to take command of the second wild card spot, leaving it up for grabs in the ultra competitive American League.

Last night the O’s beat the White Sox in style as Scott Feldman delivered the best Oriole start of the year.   Feldman pitched a complete game shut-out, allowing five hits while striking out three and only walking one.  It was a great performance, and it was the first complete game of the year for the Orioles’ pitching staff.  That seems pathetic, but I’ll still take it.

Chris Davis and Matt Wieters  hit back to back dingers in the sixth inning.  Davis had been in a bit of a funk of late and he broke out last night with a 3 for 4. The home run was his 48th of the season.   Davis has been known to hit ’em out in bunches, and it would really warm the cockles of many a Baltimorean if Davis were to get hot at the plate.  The Birds won’t make the playoffs without heavy production from Crush.  A sudden shit storm of home runs and RBIs would be fantastic.

More trots would be nice.

Danny Valencia continued his assault of American League left-handers.  Danny went 2 for 3 with a home run and 2 RBIs.  Maybe this guy should bat third when he’s in the line-up.  He’s that good against lefties.

The White Sox may be quitting on manager Robin Ventura.  Good.  With a tough AL East only schedule on the horizon, the Birds could use a few more against a team that is simply looking forward playing golf in Florida.
