Just Keep on Winning the Series in Orioles Talk Posted August 1, 2014 I actually agree with this, to an extent.You all know that I am the king of the "One game at a time" philosophy, so I am upset with the latest loss ...... regardless of the fact that we won the overall series. However ...... in hindsight, I think that it's a good thing that the Orioles took the series, and that they have gone 12-3-1 over their last 16 series. That's (obviously) a very big reason why the Orioles are currently sitting in first place in the division, as they have gone 32-20 in those 16 series ...... that's a .615 winning percentage over almost 1/3 of the season (52 games.) 32-20 is why they sit atop the AL east, not the 12-3-1 in series. You can change the series record to be better or worse and the Orioles could still be 32-20 over that stretch.
