Week in Review: Down and Out

Wade Miley holds up the baseball.
After scrapping away all season long to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Orioles’ October ambitions were dealt a fatal blow over their latest ten-game road trip as they finished the stretch with a 2-8 record. The positives? Austin Hays and Chance Sisco both hit their first career home runs in the Bronx. That’s about it. The fact that it was the Yankees that served the proverbial ”Knockout blow” to the Orioles’ playoff hopes over the weekend doesn’t make it any easier to swallow. At 73-77 with twelve games remaining […]

After finally snapping their six-game losing skid in the series finale in Toronto, the Orioles will now look ahead to their next challenge that comes in the form of a four-game set in the Bronx. As a result of their recent losing streak, the Orioles (72-74) now trail the Minnesota Twins by 4.5 games for the final wild card spot in the American League with just sixteen games remaining on the schedule. A current 1-5 record over the first two legs of the road trip hasn’t done them any favors, […]

After dropping all three games versus the red-hot Cleveland Indians over the weekend, the Orioles will now have to head to Toronto with a ”win-or-die” mentality in order to remain in the thick of the playoff chase. While going to Toronto and coming away with a series win is usually tough enough, the Orioles will be breathing a sigh of relief to be escaping the confines of Ohio. Now, they must let it go and put the petal to the metal with their backs against the wall. Don’t count them […]

Week in Review: Into the Buzzsaw

We knew we were up against it, and even though the Orioles fought admirably over the last two games of the series in Cleveland, they simply couldn’t turn the tides of fate. They were no match for the ridiculously hot Indians and their now 18-game winning streak. But in all honesty, nobody is at the moment. It doesn’t make the pill of a three-game sweep any easier to swallow, especially now with just nineteen games remaining on the schedule and still being on the outside looking in. Sometimes you just […]

Series Preview: Orioles (71-69) at Indians (84-56)

After concluding an otherwise solid ten-game home stand with a 9-1 loss to the Yankees, the Orioles will look to get back in the win column tonight in Cleveland as they prepare to embark on a ten-game, three-legged road trip. I guess the old saying here is “easier said than done.” The white-hot Cleveland Indians are currently on a remarkable fifteen-game winning streak and do not look to be slowing down anytime soon. The Orioles have been up against it many times before, but to say that they are going […]

After splitting a wild series versus Toronto over the weekend to stay hot on Minnesota’s heels for the final playoff spot in the American League, the Orioles will look to make a great home stand even better against the New York Yankees in the final three-game set at home before embarking on a ten-game road trip. From double-sweeping the Red Sox and the Mariners to walking it off twice against the Blue Jays, this red-hot Orioles squad is simply buzzing at the moment and they now face a prime chance […]

Week in Review: Game On!

Mark Trumbo and his Orioles teammates celebrate a walk-off.
Well folks, this roller coaster of a season has served up a few more loops and twists over the past week, and I really hope you all are buckled up for the home stretch. And if recent times have revealed anything, it’s that we’re in for a wild ride to the finish line, and the Orioles are going to be in the thick of this scrap until the very end. After sweeping the Mariners mid-week to extend their winning streak to a season-high seven games, the Orioles then followed up […]

Series Preview: Orioles (68-65) vs. Blue Jays (62-71)

The Orioles Jeremy Hellickson and the Blue Jays Marco Estrada pitch side by side.
After opening up their ten-game home stand with a statement-making sweep over the visiting Mariners, the red-hot Orioles will carry an amazing seven-game win streak into their four-game clash versus Toronto. The Orioles (68-65) have used their stellar run of form to launch themselves onto the Minnesota Twins’ doorstep for the final wild card slot in the AL and now trail by just 1.5-games. They’ve also pulled themselves to just 2.5-games behind the Yankees for second place in the division and the first wild card spot in the American League. […]

Ariel Miranda of the Mariners pitches.
After flying out of Boston with a three-game sweep over their bitter rivals in their back pocket, the Orioles will now look to keep the good vibes flowing versus a scrappy Seattle Mariners squad over a three-game set at Camden Yards. The upcoming clash against the Mariners will kick off a three-legged, ten-game home stand for the Orioles. To say that this is the biggest home stand of the year would be an understatement. They’ll take on fellow wild card contender Seattle to begin the week, then host two AL […]

Week in Review: O’s Heat Up as Summer Cools Down

Well well well, what do we have here? The clock may be ticking, but the Orioles have been doing a ton of knocking lately… And it looks like this Orioles squad that just about everyone deemed dead in the water without even a fighter’s chance of making the postseason is out to shock the world once again. And after an incredible sweep over the red-hot Bo’Sox at Fenway over the weekend, there is no doubt the Orioles are revving up the engine at the perfect moment in time. The starters […]

A shot from inside Fenway Park during a game.
After taking two of three against the A’s and finishing a six-game home stand at an even 3-3, The Orioles will now make a mini-road trip up to Fenway for the last time this season before returning home for a crucial ten-game home stand. The Orioles (62-65) are pretty much light years behind the Red Sox for the division title at this point in the season, but they remain just three games behind the Twins for the final wild card slot in the American League. After earning two big notches […]

Series Preview: Orioles (60-64) vs. A’s (54-70)

Wade Miley of the Orioles pitches.
After failing to capitalize on a prime opportunity versus the Angels over the weekend, the Orioles will now look to recover in a hurry and try to build some momentum versus the lowly Oakland A’s over the next three nights. For the Orioles, time is running out for them to state their case for a playoff spot in October. A favorable three-game set versus the second-worst team in the AL must translate to at least two wins in the back pocket, if not all three. It doesn’t help that Boston […]

Week in Review: Opportunities Squandered

Kevin Gausman walks off the mound as an Angels player rounds the bases after a HR.
Right off of the heels of a disheartening tenure on the West Coast, the Orioles had a prime chance to make up for it in a massive way but failed to seize the opportunity this weekend versus the Angels. A series win would have been not only massive for the team morale coming into a lengthy stand at home, but a chance to cut into a 2.5-game deficit for the final playoff spot in the AL has come and gone. Instead, the Orioles now stand at four games out of […]

Series Preview: Orioles (59-62) vs. Angels (62-59)

Manny Machado and Mike Trout sie-by-side.
After capping off a topsy-turvy trip on the West Coast by dropping two out of three in Seattle, the Orioles will be looking to recover and bounce back from a bruising blow in the form of a 4-6 road trip over the weekend against the Los Angeles Angels. On the sunny side of things, the Orioles will now dig in and try to rack up a haul of crucial wins at home. They’ll be playing in the friendly confines of Camden Yards for sixteen of the next nineteen contests. Winning […]

Series Preview: Orioles (58-60) @ Mariners (59-60)

A shot of Safeco Field in Seattle.
After dropping a series in Anaheim before splitting a four-game set versus the Athletics in Oakland, the Orioles will now head to Seattle to take on the Mariners to conclude their three-legged, ten-game tour through the West Coast. And to say it is a crucial three-game set on the Orioles remaining schedule would be an understatement. The Orioles (58-60) are just a half a game behind the Rays for third place in the AL East and trail the Angels by only 2.5-games for the second and final wild card spot […]

Week in Review: Treading Pacific Water

The Orioles' Tim Beckham.
Just as it seemed as if the Orioles were set to break on through to the other side… another week has passed, and it still hasn’t happened…yet. But make no mistake about it: these Orioles are geared up for the home stretch, and they’re not going down without a fight. After taking just one of three in Anaheim, the Orioles bounced back to split the four-game set in Oakland over the weekend. While a 3-4 record over the first seven games of their ten-game swing out on the West Coast […]

Series Preview: Orioles (53-54) vs. Tigers (49-57)

Kevin Gausman & Justin Verlander side-by-side pitching photos.
After making their intentions known with an amazing three-game sweep of the red-hot Royals, the Orioles will look to keep the good times rolling over a four-game set against the Detroit Tigers before hitting the West Coast. Just like that, folks. These Orioles are making a lot of noise outside, and thanks to a five-game winning tear, they’re about to start banging on the door. If they can stay in top form, they’ll be more like unwelcome guests that arrived just in time to crash the party. No team in […]

Series Preview: Orioles (50-54) vs. Royals (55-48)

Dylan Bundy finishes his pitching motion.
After rallying last weekend in Arlington to keep their playoff aspirations alive, the Orioles will now look to keep the positive energy flowing during their upcoming three-game set versus the holders of the second wild card spot in the AL, the Kansas City Royals. For a team that is trying to claw their way back into a playoff spot, they can’t afford to go backwards against the club that they are currently trying to track down. The Orioles’ upcoming seven-game home stand will be their biggest home stand of the […]

Week in Review: Fighting to the Trade Deadline

Baltimore Orioles CF Adam Jones flies high over the wall to rob a home run.
Another week has come and gone here in Birdland, and guess what? The Birds are still alive. If you don’t believe it, all you have to do is look at the standings. Crazy, right? After losing a monumental series down in Tampa before getting drubbed 8-2 in the series opener over in Arlington, the Orioles very well could have been down for the count. The hope was dwindling, and a massive road trip was turning into a disaster in a hurry. Not so fast. Instead, these Orioles had another idea […]

Series Preview: Orioles (48-53) @ Rangers (49-52)

Chris Tillman of the Baltimore Orioles pitches.
After taking just one of three in Tampa, the Orioles will be looking to end their road trip on a high note during a three-night stay in Arlington before returning home to kick off a seven-game home stand versus Kansas City and Detroit. With the Orioles still on the outside looking in, every single series remaining on the schedule holds a crucial meaning. They can’t afford to drop games and series like they did earlier this week, and with the majority of the teams in playoff contention gaining momentum as […]
