O’s Season Ends in Heartbreak in Toronto

Edwin Encarnacion throws his bat in celebration as Matt Wieters walks off behind him.
Just two days after a thrilling feel-good vibe swept over Birdland, the party is over just as it was getting started. The O’s fell to Edwin Encarnacion and the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 5-2 in an 11-inning heartbreaking nail-biter Wild Card game. While the resilient Orioles battled away deep into the Ontario night, it just wasn’t enough in the end. They could have panicked after Jose Bautista’s towering shot off of Chris Tillman in the second inning sent the crowd at Rogers Centre into frenzy, or because […]

Series Notebook: O’s Rebound for Huge Series Win in Toronto

Manny Machado and Hyun Soo Kim celebrate a home run.
Ladies and Gentleman, the cardiac Orioles have done it again. After a lackluster performance in Tuesday’s 5-1 loss in the series opener, the Blue Jays had all of the momentum in their corner as they looked to land a devastating blow to the Orioles’ playoff hopes. Instead, the Orioles flipped the script on one swing of the bat on Wednesday and followed it up with a convincing four-nil victory in the series finale to snatch the series away from the hosts. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s back […]

After stepping up and recording a massive three-game sweep over Arizona this past weekend, the Orioles have vaulted themselves back into the playoff picture heading into the final week of the season. Just six games stand in between the Orioles and their third trip to the playoffs in the last five seasons. The Orioles, however, will have to be at their absolute best over the next week in order to clinch their spot in the postseason as they head across the northern border to take on the Blue Jays before […]

In desperate need of a boost in morale – and in the standings – after a demoralizing series versus Boston, the Orioles bounced back in the biggest way possible by sweeping the Arizona Diamondbacks over the weekend. Just when it seemed like the ship may be going down, the Orioles have fought back to reclaim their spot in the postseason going into the final week of the regular season. The Orioles fell into a 2-0 hole early in Friday’s series opener, and despite many chances to level the score, they […]

With their playoff aspirations hanging in the balance after a brutal and devastating series versus the Red Sox, the Orioles must now erase the memory of the last four games in order to force their way back into the playoff picture. In what could be the final home games of the season, the Orioles should have their sights set on sweeping the lowly Arizona Diamondbacks. Anything less than two wins over the weekend could prove to be fatal for the Orioles and their 2016 campaign. The Orioles (82-71) stand at […]

Series Notebook: Let’s Never Speak of This Again

Some Red Sox jerks celebrate.
Just four days ago, remember when we talked about the Orioles playoff hopes and their worthiness of a playoff spot? Well, the Orioles’ hopes of a place in the postseason just took a heavy blow, and their worthiness to play October baseball has been called into question after suffering through four days of misery en route to being dealt a four-game sweep by the hand of the red-hot Bo’Sox. In fact, the Orioles will now have to shake off their meltdown versus Boston and rally in order to reclaim a […]

After splitting a four-game set versus Tampa Bay to open their 11-game home stand, the Orioles will now look forward to a monumental clash versus the Boston Red Sox to stay alive in the chase for the AL East title. With just 13 games remaining on the schedule, a series split will bring the Orioles one more leap closer to reaching the postseason, but a series loss could have devastating effects. While the division title isn’t completely out of the equation just yet, the mission should be to get into […]

Series Notebook: O’s Split Four-Game Roller Coaster Series

Nolan Reimold sprints toward home plate as fans cheer.
We always talk about how much of a roller coaster September baseball is, and the Orioles latest four-game stint versus the Rays was a shining example of just that. I feel like both clubs went through all five stages of emotion at some point over the weekend, maybe even twice. Actually, check to make sure you still have a pulse. If you do, brace yourselves for the series against Boston. The series started with a frustrating 7-6 loss to the Rays on Thursday, a game in which the Orioles shot […]

After an incredible week-plus on the road in St. Petersburg, Detroit, and Boston, the surging Orioles will now set their sights on punching their ticket to the postseason for the third time in five years during the upcoming 11-game home stand at Camden Yards. As an Orioles fan that went through their whole childhood, adolescence and teenage years during the dark ages of Orioles Baseball, just the thought of a third trip to the playoffs in five years is nothing short of incredible. It is also a testament to how […]

There is no denying it now: with just 17 games left to go on the schedule, the Baltimore Orioles are starting to soar as the playoffs draw near after winning yet another monumental series at Fenway. The Orioles are now a perfect 4-0 in series play in the month of September and own an impressive 8-4 record during that stretch. Thanks to their current surge in form, the Orioles find themselves just a game behind the Red Sox for first in the division. The O’s have also leapfrogged the Blue […]

After banking a crucial series win in Detroit to remain in the driver’s seat in the wild card chase, the Orioles will be looking to do some damage against the first-place Red Sox over the next three games at Fenway Park. The Orioles (78-64) are now tied with Toronto for second in the AL East and find themselves just two games behind the Red Sox for first in the division. After winning six of their first nine games this month, the Orioles have also gained a two-game advantage over the […]

Series Notebook: O’s Tame Tigers, Take Two in Motown Showdown

A baseball player high fives teammates in the dugout.
With the Orioles and Tigers separated by just a single game in race for the final wild card spot in the American League going into the weekend, the writing on the wall was clear: this was the biggest series of the year for both clubs, with heavy playoff implications. More or less, it was October baseball in September. But after dropping a tough game by a score of 4-3 on Friday night, the Orioles soared back to win the next two games to not only take the series, but to […]

With the Orioles starting to take flight in the early stages of September, the vibe around town is that this squad might just defy the odds again and land a spot in the postseason. Even better, they remain smack dab in the middle of another fierce chase for the division title with 23 games left to go on the calendar. But before we get too carried away, the Orioles must retain their high level of intensity and fight to remain in the driver’s seat in the wild card chase versus […]

Series Notebook: Orioles Take Two of Three at The Trop

We’re only a week into September, and the intensity is already almost too much to bear. With 23 games left on the schedule, the Orioles find themselves not only in the middle of a four-horse race for the AL East pennant, but a six-team scrum for the second and final wild card slot in the American League. Heading into the Motor City, the O’s are just a game behind the second place Blue Jays, who fell off the top of the table after being dealt a sweep versus New York, […]

Series Notebook: O’s Get Some Revenge, Take Two from NYY

A baseball player rounds the bases while the pitcher kicks the rubber.
With the feeling of sudden urgency looming around Birdland as the Yankees rolled into town, it was clear that the Orioles were in need of a momentum-building effort going into the last full month of the season. And the home team did not disappoint by doing just that, shutting out the Yankees two nights in a row before dropping the series finale on Sunday. While the O’s couldn’t deliver the KO blow and complete the sweep of the Yankees, it was an encouraging display that proved to the rest of […]

After dropping a crucial series versus Toronto, the Orioles will look to kick off the month of September on a high note against the New York Yankees over the next three games at Camden Yards. And with 29 games separating the Orioles from either playing baseball or golf in October, there is almost no room for error as the regular season draws to a close. The Orioles (72-61) currently find themselves four games off the pace of the first-place Blue Jays and two games behind Boston for second place. After […]

Series Notebook: O’s Struggles vs. AL East Continue as Jays Take Two

A baseball player breaks his bat over his knee.
While there is still the entire month of September to play, the Orioles did not do themselves any favors in the race for the AL East crown this week, dropping two of three to Toronto. The panic button may not need to be pressed just yet, but the clock is indeed ticking… After the Orioles’ failed opportunity to pull closer to the first-place Blue Jays, they now stand at a season-high four games out of first place and two games behind Boston for second in the division. To make matters […]
