Baltimore Wins World Series!
Friday, October 28th, 2016
With a 9-7 win over the San Francisco Giants at Oriole Park at Camden Yards today, the Baltimore Orioles wrapped up their 1st title in team history.

The Orioles left little doubt who was the better team. Celebrating a banner year, "team" was the word of the day in the victorious clubhouse after the game.

"Hitting, pitching, fielding; those are all things you need to win, but most importantly you need a team, a team that works together toward the same collective goal," said Baltimore manager Derek Bain. "Our players felt that way all year, and they played that way. When one guy had an off day, 24 others stepped up their game and filled the void."

A jovial mood filled the air as Baltimore celebrated into the night. The city's mayor said parade plans were underway and a "huge celebration" would be in order.

"I hope they have a big celebration," said Baltimore manager Derek Bain. "They've earned it."
