Buck Showalter asked for Jake Arrieta to step up and he answered with eight innings of shutout baseball in the Yankee Stadium.

Baltimore took two of three in the Bronx and kept the Bombers to just three runs the entire series.  In contrast, the Orioles wracked up 13 of their own.

Wieters bombs the bombers.

Now for some nifty stats from MASNSports.com’s Roch Kubatko and our good pal Joe Papparotto:

  • The Orioles are seven games above .500 for the first time since July 19, 2005.
  • Baltimore took their first series in New York since September of 2010.
  • The last time the Orioles held the Yankees to three runs in three games was 1965.

Feel it happen.
