SB Nation: The Baltimore Orioles and the One-Run Win

Nice piece of analysis by Cliff Corcoran here, with a pretty unsurprising conclusion:

What this tells us is that the Orioles did indeed win their one-run games the way they won the rest of the season, with pitching and home runs. Knowing that makes their one-run record seem like less of a fluke, but it doesn’t make it any more repeatable.

For no particular reason I was looking at team stats today and the Orioles pitched 1483 innings this year, which is the most since San Diego in 2007 (1484), though that was with Game 163. I only looked as far back as 2000, but that's the largest 162 game total in that time.
