Which is Worse: A Collapse Against the Red Sox or a Doubleheader Loss to the Yankees?

Checking back on the 1956 “day after” following the O’s previous biggest comeback win

I can’t imagine it being any worse than Wednesday’s disheartening follow-up to the biggest comeback win in modern franchise history, but the Orioles did manage to break some hearts in Baltimore following their previous biggest comeback win, an eight-run rally on Sept. 2, 1956, that produced an 11-10 victory over Boston. What the O’s did for an encore back then was lose a double-header to the Yankees.

First came a 6-1 loss to the Casey Stengel-led Yankees, followed by a 5-0 shutout against New York’s Don Larsen.

Larsen pitched a complete game in the ’56 nightcap, giving up four hits in nine innings. Brad Bergesen gave up four hits in eight innings on Wednesday.
