Check out his photos (which gave him the winning edge) here: So nice work to Avi for his hard work throughout the month of...

Today in O's history

Today in O's history
On this day in 1999, Cal Ripken Jr. became the first Oriole to go 6-for-6 in a game, as the O's scored the most runs in franchise history (at that time) on their way to a 22-1 win over the Braves. Cal's six-hit game is still an Orioles single-game record, as are the five runs he scored off of his six hits in that game as well. Miguel Tejada was the last Oriole to come close with a five-hit game on July 9, 2005 versus the Boston Red Sox at OPACY. The O's topped their single-game run...

Scott secures win in Second Annual Orioles Cook-Off

Scott secures win in Second Annual Orioles Cook-Off
At last year's First Annual Orioles Cook-Off, it was obvious that Gregg Zaun was in it to win it. This year, that Oriole was Luke Scott. And his quiet intensity paid off, as Scott was eventually awarded the title of Best Chef in Birdland at the conclusion of the Second Annual Orioles Cook-Off, held this afternoon at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore. Luke Scott's surf and turf, featuring filet mignon and salmon topped with scallops and cream sauce beat out Kevin Millwood's chicken enchiladas...

Do we have a rivalry yet?

Do we have a rivalry yet?
With this weekend's series at Nationals Park, the O's and Nats will kick off the interleague portions of their 2010 schedules. Since the first interleague game on June 12, 1997, we've watched 13 seasons of mixed play. After five seasons during which each division played against its same division from the opposing league (the AL East met the NL East in the first years of interleague play), the current format was later adopted in 2002. Today, we watch the O's face teams from various...
