A few notes

Buck Showalter, Earl Weaver and Davey Johnson are the only Orioles managers to start out 6-1 in their first seasons.

Did you know that Weaver won his first six games and lost each of his next three by one run?

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Showalter is the first manager since 1924 to win three of his first seven games in walk-off fashion.

I’m not sure what that says about Showalter or his team, but it’s a fact.

The Orioles have nine walk-off wins this season, and their 10 extra-inning victories match the Phillies for the most in baseball.

Cleveland’s Matt LaPorta has hit three homers in nine career games against the Orioles. He’s totaled 11 homers in 114 games against the other teams.
