Week in Review: O’s Laugh in the Face of Adversity

Baltimore Oriole Manny Machado laughs as he rounds the bases.
Sheesh, what a week that was, eh? We all know how much of a roller coaster a 162-game season is, but it feels like we’ve been through about a dozen loops and twists in the span of seven days. First, there was Adam Jones versus a few classless ‘Sox fans on Monday, followed by the Manny Machado versus Chris Sale incident on Tuesday, Kevin Gausman versus Sam Holbrook on Wednesday, and finally, Machado’s ”Slow trot heard around the world” on Thursday. Long story short, things got stupid in Boston- to […]

Series Preview: Orioles (17-10) vs. White Sox (15-12)

Side-by-side of Wade Miley pitching and Miguel Gonzalez walking off the mound.
Hey, did you guys know that there was actually baseball being played in Boston this week? Aside from all the drama and total nonsense, the Orioles managed to split the four-game set versus the Red Sox before heading back to Baltimore. Hopefully, they’ll be able to focus on actually playing baseball instead of being in the middle of a media-driven soap opera this weekend. The Orioles (17-10) are right on the Yankees’ heels for first place in the division as they prepare to kick off a five-game homestand, and will […]

Series Preview: Orioles (15-8) @ Red Sox (13-11)

side-by-side of Dylan Bundy and Rick Porcello pitching.
While the Orioles’ first trip to the Bronx this season was a rough one, they can at least head to Boston on a semi-high note after Sunday’s extra-innings win to avoid the sweep. And I swear, that was the last time I’ll bring up this past weekend. Probably. Moving forward, the O’s will end their seven-game road swing with a four-game set at Fenway. The Orioles (15-8) are now tied with the Bronx Bombers for first in the division as we head into May, and carry a solid 7-5 mark […]

Week in Review: Bronx Bombed, but Not Swept

Buck Showalter is ejected by the home plate ump in New York.
Can we really complain? It’s true that the O’s offense has come and gone all season long. The starters have begun to come down off of the insane high they were on. The bullpen has started to show signs of early-season fatigue, and the absence of Zach Britton is hurting more and more by the day. Yes, blowing a 9-1 and 11-4 lead en route to a devastating 14-11 loss in the series opener versus the Yanks was just about the toughest thing that I’ve had to watch since the […]

Series Preview: Orioles (14-6) @ Yankees (13-7)

After capping off a great week at home by taking two of three versus the visiting Tampa Bay Rays, the Orioles will now look to continue their winning ways in the Bronx this weekend against the Yankees. This weekend will feature a three-game clash for first place in the early season standings, and both clubs have been in great form to kick off the campaign. The first-place Orioles (14-6) Have put together an excellent first month of the season and remain undefeated in series play this year with a 6-1-0 […]

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb pitches.
After taking two of three from the visiting Boston Red Sox over the weekend, the Orioles will look to continue their excellent run of form against the Tampa Bay Rays during the second leg of the home stand tonight at Camden Yards. The Orioles (12-5) couldn’t have dreamed of a better overall start to the 2017 season. Not only do they own an MLB-Best 12-5 record, they’ve also recorded an impressive 6-2 record at home, a 6-3 record away from OPACY, and a stellar 10-4 mark versus the vicious AL […]

Week in Review: Good Vibes, Bad Blood

Baltimore Oriole Manny Machado drops his helmet and shin guard and stares toward the pitcher's mound.
Well folks, we have another week in the books as we enter the final week of April. And the Orioles have another week of being in first place under their belt. After capping off an excellent first road trip of the season by taking two of three in The Queen City, the O’s kept it rolling upon returning home by taking two of three against the Red Sox. The results leave the Birds with an outstanding 6-3 record away from Camden Yards and an MLB-Best 12-5 record with only…145 games […]

After wrapping up an excellent showing in their first road trip of the season, the Orioles will now fly back to Camden to take on the reigning AL East Champion Boston Red Sox for a three-game set at home. The Orioles (10-4) come back to Baltimore on a serious high after posting an impressive 6-3 record over their latest nine-game road stretch, while the Red Sox (10-6) will also be feeling pretty good after taking two of three in Toronto earlier this week and seem to have found their stride […]

After posting a 4-2 record over the first two legs of the road trip in Boston and Toronto, the red-hot Orioles will be looking to keep up the pace going into the last stop of their first road tour of 2017 in Cincinnati. The Orioles (8-3) will be looking to come home in first place after taking three of four in Toronto, while the first-place Reds (8-5) will be trying to wash away a rough weekend after dropping three of four at home to the Brewers. The Reds have been […]

Week in Review: O’s Find Power, Stay Hot in Boston & Toronto

Mark Trumbo and Trey Mancini of the Baltimore Orioles high five after a home run.
Put simply, life is pretty sweet for the Orioles at the moment. After kicking off the season with a bang at home, these O’s have carried their red-hot run of form into the first road trip of the season and find themselves in first place going into the second half of April. Oh…and they own an MLB-best 72.7% win percentage (8-3) to begin the season. Is that good? After splitting a two-game set in Boston, the Orioles, backed by tremendous starting pitching and a few power surges, went back to […]

After splitting the two-night stand in Boston, the Orioles will travel across the border for the first time this season to take on the sleeping Toronto Blue Jays in a four-game set. The Orioles (5-2) will be looking to keep up the pace after clubbing five homers last night at Fenway in a 12-5 win, while the Jays (1-7) will be looking to snap a five-game losing streak.

A shot from inside Fenway Park during a game.
After opening up the season with a bang in front of the Camden Yards faithful, the Orioles will now jet out of town on a nine-game, three-legged road trip. The first stop is a two-night stay in Boston for a set against the reigning AL East champions. The Orioles (4-1) will be looking to remain in first place in the early goings of the season, while the Red Sox (3-3) will be looking to bounce back after dropping three of four in Detroit over the weekend. Dylan Bundy (1-0, 1.29 […]

A Look Back on a Successful First Week in Birdland

Zach Britton and Welington Castillo of the Baltimore Orioles high five after a win.
It seems as though the sunshine has finally broken through and spring is here to stay. Which means…you guessed it! Baseball is back in Birdland! After a long, long offseason to ponder things, the O’s have started their 2017 campaign the same way they started off 2016. By racking up a bunch of notches on the good side of the hash mark. After Mark Trumbo‘s electrifying opening day walk-off and Dylan Bundy‘s dominant 2017 debut sent the Blue Jays out of Camden Yards with a zero in the win column, […]

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 […]

Well folks, this is it. After a wild and intense six-month, 162-game season, the Orioles have nine innings and twenty-seven outs to fight for their playoffs lives tonight in Toronto. The winner will book a flight to Arlington, while the other one will go (or stay) home. But before we dive into tonight’s one-off showdown, let’s take a look at the tale of both clubs before both teams take the field for the 20th and final time against each other this season. The Orioles (89-73) kicked off the campaign on […]

Mark Trumbo and Matt Wieters high five.
After grinding, scrapping and clawing through a never-ending roller coaster of a season, the smoke has cleared and the dust has settled. Ladies and Gentleman, your Baltimore Orioles have punched their ticket to the dance that is October baseball, and man, what a wild ride it’s been…through all of the electrifying highs and the worrisome lows that we have been through this season, this team has persevered and deserves nothing less than a shot to go deep into the playoffs. And all of this is possible because this resilient squad […]

After taking one step closer to punching their ticket to the playoffs in Toronto, the Orioles will be looking to seal the deal over the next three games in New York City as they prepare to take on the Yankees in the season finale. After taking two in a row in Toronto to snatch the series from the Blue Jays, the Orioles (87-72) are now tied with the Jays for second place in the division and the first wild card spot in the AL.

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 […]

Series Notebook: O’s Bounce Back With Sweep of Arizona

Hyun Soo Kim smiles while his teammates high five him.
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 […]
