More free baseball (and another walk-off win!)

Who needs nine innings when you can play 10? Or 11? Or...

The Orioles will try for their ninth consecutive win in extras, which would set a franchise record. They also won eight in a row in 1997 and 2010. The current streak is the longest in the majors.

They’re 8-2 beyond regulation, including yesterday’s 12-inning victory that was secured by Adam Jones’ walk-off home run. The Phillies are 2-5.

The Orioles have played 30 extra innings this season and have outscored their opponents, 18-3.

The Orioles’ bullpen is coming up big again. Two scoreless innings from Troy Patton and one from Jim Johnson. Now Darren O’Day is on the scene.

Update: Adam Jones reached on Ty Wigginton’s error with one out in the 10th, and he raced home on Matt Wieters’ double off the out-of-town scoreboard in right.

Another walk-off win for the Orioles, who set a franchise record with their ninth extra-inning victory in a row.

Wieters has 14 hits in his last 36 at-bats since going 3-for-42.

The Orioles are 4-2 in interleague games after going 7-11 last year.
