BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles wrapped up their regular-season home schedule with a defeat, one that was much easier to take because of the circumstances surrounding it.
The Orioles' 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday didn't impact their stature as AL East champions. Afterward, there was no heartfelt farewell to the fans, because Camden Yards will be open for playoff baseball in October.
"We're excited to come back for the postseason," losing pitcher Miguel Gonzalez said. "It's exciting, definitely, for everyone."
