One of the stories that has baseball fans enthralled this year is the success of teams that in recent history haven't been very good.

The Oakland A's could be a wild card...or even a division champion.

The Washington Nationals have the best record in baseball.

And, the Baltimore Orioles are challenging in the always rugged American League East.

The Orioles, who trailed the New York Yankees by ten games in mid July, broke a 6-6 tie with four runs in the eighth inning to beat the Yankees 10-6 and move into a tie for first place.

Adam Jones homered to lead off the eighth inning to give the O's the lead for good, sending the crowd at Camden Yards into a frenzy.

The Orioles have had fourteen straight losing seasons.
