The Mighty Morphin Power Orioles pushed the Pinstriped Posers out of first place today—offering the Red Sox an opportunity to make that situation stick on Thursday night. Budding superstar Manny Machado looped a single to left scoring Adam Jones with the winning run in a 3-2 defeat of Tampa. The win assured that Baltimore would not have its sixteenth straight losing season. The Bronx Embalmers could slip a full game out of first with a loss to Boston.
