If you love statistical oddities as I do, consider the last three outings by Orioles lefty reliever Tim Byrdak. In two of the appearances he was charged with six earned runs combined while only recording two outs. Ouch! But in between, the 32-year-old picked up his first major league victory with a one-out appearance against the Angels.

The win came in his 93rd major league appearance, in a big-league career that stretches back to 1998. Byrdak split 2003 pitching in the Northern League for Joliet, IL and Gary, IN. The story gets so juicy I will be writing about it in more detail in this Thursday's Independent Baseball Insider.
