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.
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.
