Orioles take series in NY behind Reynolds, Wolf
NEW YORK– The Orioles have waited a long time for this; for a winning record, relevant September baseball, and a playoff push that could result in the organization’s first postseason game in 15 years.
And while that remains the end goal, Baltimore certainly doesn’t mind rewriting a little history along the way. For the first time since 1976, the Orioles claimed their third series win in New York in a single season, using a pair of homers from Mark Reynolds to propel them to an 8-3 win Sunday afternoon that cuts the Yankees’ American League East lead back to two games.
The message, in taking six of nine games in the Bronx, is simple. These O’s will no longer be bullied.
