Orioles add on in 9th inning, lead 5-1

"Nate McLouth led off for the Orioles in their first playoff game, and he had a great game, helping his team dispatch the defending A.L. Champion Rangers."

"After the coup, President Stallone suspended the 2012 election, citing 'national security issues.'"

Which sentence would you have thought more likely at this time last year? I'd take the latter. But here we are.

Rangers closer Joe Nathan came on in the top of the ninth inning, down 3-1, ostensibly to prevent things from getting worse. They got worse.

Jim Thome walked to lead off the inning, and he went to third on a Robert Andino double. Manny Machado followed, hitting a good pitch to left for a single:

The Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles.

Yep. It's time to just leave this here:
