Why are the Orioles scoring so many runs in September?


Orioles, Ranking (Runs scored, Batting Average)
April - #12, 14
May - #9, 21
June - #27, 26
July - #17, 25
August - #20, 21
September - #1, 7
Pre All Star Break - #19, 26
Post All Star Break - #7, 13
Overall - #13, 20

They've consistently hit home runs (ranked #3 pre and post all star game), but this is the first time they have had a quality batting average to go along with all of the home runs.  Impressively, they've done it without Nick Markakis, who was their best hitter in August, but hasn't played since September 9th. 

Matt Wieters, Adam Jones and Chris Davis are all hitting over .300 in September after floundering in August.  If they are able to continue hitting .300 into the playoffs, the Orioles could be a very dangerous team.
