Down 5-1 in the 8th inning, it seemed as if the Orioles were on there way to another loss by the hands of the Mariners. Even when newcomer Corey Patterson belted a solo homerun with no one out just seemed like a meaningless stat. But the O’s made more noise when they loaded the bases for Luke Scott, who came through with a grand slam to put the O’s ahead 6-5.

But the fun did not end there. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, runners on first and second, Ichiro Suzuki singled to left and Josh Wilson circled around third heading for home. Corey Patterson, who was in left field, threw a strike to Matt Wieters at home, tagging him out just in time to seal the victory.

It was arguably the best win of the season, as the O’s win the series two games to one. A great way to grab some momentum heading into the next few series’, which are against beatable opponents in Cleveland (13-19) and Kansas City (12-23). It was also nice to see Corey Patterson come up big today, and to see Luke Scott get out of his slump. It looks like everything is starting to fall in place for the Orioles.
