Baltimore Trumps Twins in ALCS 3-2

The Minnesota Twins and the Baltimore Orioles battled to the end but the O's hung on to move to the World Series with a 3-2 win.  It is the second year in a row the both teams faced each other for the right to move on to to the big show.  Baltimore looked like they may sweep Minnesota by winning games 1 (4-2) and 2 (6-3) on the road and having to travel back to Memorial Stadium for game 3 left Oriole fans feeling like it was a done deal for their team.  However, Minnesota captured the next two games (3-1 and 4-1) leaving the Baltimore faithful feeling stunned.  But the Baltimore bats came alive in game 5 rocking out 15 hits and 9 runs to capture the ALCS title.

In 1969 the Orioles defeated the Twins 3-1, only to end up losing to Pittsburgh in the World Series.  This time Baltimore will face Cincinnati for the right to wear baseballs elusive crown.
