Orioles Win American Championship 2-1.
Both teams played hard in this slugfest. O's take an early 10 - 3 lead by the fifth inning. However, the Yankees showed a lot of fight and scored 7 unanswered runs over the 6th and 7th innings to tie the game. After threatening to take the lead on several occasions, the Yanks were turned away scoreless by several key defensive plays.
Game remained tied at 10 until the bottom of the eighth, when the Orioles offense erupted for 6 runs including a three-run HR by J. Newman and another two-run blast by A. Sheehan to give the O's a 16 - 10 lead.
Lots of credit to the Yankees who played three outstanding games!
