Orioles' Wild-Card Chances Getting Slimmer


By Rich Dubroff, PressBox

Buck Showalter likes to say "September is an eternity." For the Orioles manager, September has been his kindest month. In seven Septembers as the team's skipper, Showalter has never had a losing one, but through nine games this month, things aren't looking positive for the Orioles.

The Orioles began September on a high, with a nerve-racking, 1-0, win in 13 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays for their eighth win in nine games.

The eight games since have been difficult, however. The Orioles are 3-6 in September, and each of their wins has been in their last turn at-bat: the 13-inning win Sept. 1, a 12-inning win Sept. 3, and a late-night win on third baseman Manny Machado's two-run home Sept. 5 that gave them a 7-6 win against the New York Yankees.
