Rumor has it that the Orioles drank the Red Sox champagne when they bounced them from postseason contention on September 28. I cannot confirm this rumor, but I really hope it’s true because that would be awesome
What I can confirm is that the Orioles celebrated Buck Showalter’s 1000th career win with some bubbly in the visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium.
Casey Willett of WBAL tweeted some evidence.
Behind a solid pitching performance from Brian Matusz and some pop at the plate from Chris Davis, the O’s beat the Yankees 7-1. The Bombers have scored three runs in two games this series.
I just jinxed it for sure.
Baltimore sends Jake Arrieta to the bump to face Ivan Nova.
Go get 1001 and Buck!
