today's game was excruciating. I kept turning it off thinking the Orioles were done for.
Miley started for the Orioles and gave up 8 hits and 5 walks in 5 innings, and yet, stood to get the win had the Yankees not tied it in the 9th. They almost lost in the 9th, but a guy beat a double play throw to first by a millisecond.
Then, the Yankees came within inches of winning it in the 10th.
Orioles were lucky to escape with the win.
So, yes, the Orioles and Yankees are tied for 1st, both being 15-8. The Yankees have outscored their opponents cumulatively by 43 runs, while the Orioles have outscored their opponents by a single run.
