They've done it much like the Rays, with good pitching (including 17 saves by George Sherrill), sturdy defense and timely hitting, a credit to manager Dave Trembley. Key stat: The Orioles have come from two or more runs back to win 11 times this season, most in the majors. Connections: Orioles DH Aubrey Huff and RHP Steve Trachsel are ex-Rays; Rays RHP Al Reyes pitched for the Orioles in 1999-2000. Series history: Rays lead 5-3 this season, Orioles lead 96-80 overall, it's 44-44 at the Trop.
