Something Magic Happens

If you're trying to figure out if I'm talking about the US Open or the Orioles game, so am I.

The Orioles just won a wild one from the Pirates at the Yards tonight to move to one game above .500 finishing an 8-7 win with a Ramon Hernandez walk-off single to left-center. The O's trailed 7-6 entering the bottom of the night, but tied it up on Oscar Salazar's first Bird homer.

The Orioles had previously rallied from down 5-4 when Nick Markakis hit a two-run bomb in the seventh. The Orioles had trailed 2-1 early, so they came from behind three times in this one. There is no quit in this team.

Meanwhile, across the States at the US Open at Torrey Pines, Tiger Woods is gimping his way to a championship. The recently surgically repair left knee of the Woods started to obviously bother him just after he started missing fairways. But somehow, Woods kept making miraculous shots. After his incredible eagle on 13, see below, Woods chipped in on #17 for a birdie to get to one-under. The chip wasn't the best of shots. But took one bounce, hit the flagstick, ran up it a little bit, and fell straight down the flag to the bottom of the cup. Then Tiger hit two good shots on the par five 18th, each time wincing in what appeared to be serious pain. Then Tiger rolled in a big breaking putt for another eagle, and gave him the overnight lead headed to the final round of the US Open. Simply an amazing finish to a great day at Torrey Pines.
