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.

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 […]

After suffering through a beat down in the Bronx, the Orioles will look to bounce back and do some damage versus the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the final series of August. Yes, that’s right. We are now just three games away from September baseball, or in other words, the grand finale which separates the contenders from the pretenders. It’s time to put up or shut up. The Orioles (71-59), currently in third place in the AL East, will have a shot at diminishing the Blue Jays’ lead in the […]

Series Notebook: O’s Win Finale to Avoid Sweep in Bronx

Kevin Gausman of the Orioles pitches.
Well, the one positive to take from the trip to the Bronx was that the O’s were able to avoid the sweep on Sunday. Other than that, it was a pretty brutal series that brought back a lot of dark memories for the Orioles faithful. After Yovani Gallardo, Vance Worley and Mike Wright were tagged for 14 runs on 18 hits in the Yankees’ 14-4 rout on Friday, Dylan Bundy & Co. couldn’t stop the bleeding on Saturday as the Yankees cruised to another 13-5 win over the ‘Birds. If […]

Series Preview: Orioles (70-57) @ Yankees (65-61)

After taking it to the Nationals in this year’s rendition of “The Battle of the Beltways,” the Orioles will look to stay in overdrive and blow past the Yankees in the Bronx this weekend. It’s always easier said than done, but with first place just a game out of reach, the Orioles surely won’t need any extra motivation. After their sublime performance versus DC, the Orioles (70-57) went from being 2.5-games off the pace of the Red Sox and Blue Jays to nipping at their heels again while also holding […]

Series Notebook: O’s Take Three of Four in Battle of the Beltways

While it may have been too early to start sending out SOS signals, there was no doubting that the Orioles were in need of a jolt to shake off a somber week of Baltimore baseball heading into the Battle of the Beltways. And what better way to revitalize your playoff chances than taking three of four and almost sweeping one of the hottest teams in baseball? Down 1-0 in the third on Monday, Jonathan Schoop became the fifth Oriole to join the 20+ home run club this season with a […]

After a massive letdown of a series versus Houston, the Orioles will now take on the first-place Nationals in the 2016 edition of the Battle of the Beltways. The Orioles (67-56) currently stand 2.5 games behind the Blue Jays at the top of the standings after dropping three in a row versus Houston, while they’ve also been just simply off the pace as of late with a 4-9 record in their last 13 games and an 8-11 mark in the month of August. The Nationals (73-50) own a commanding 8.5-game […]

Series Notebook: O’s Get a Lesson in Mashing from Houston

Chris Tillman, Orioles pitcher, wipes his brow with his arm.
After getting swept by Houston back in late May, the Orioles were undoubtedly looking for some payback against the Astros while they were in town. They did just that by launching six homers on Thursday in a 13-5 rout against Joe Musgrove & Co. in the series opener. Mark Trumbo kicked off the explosion with a three-run shot in the first inning, and before the game was over, J.J. Hardy and Chris Davis went yard twice while Manny Machado added another. All in all, it was a perfect performance from […]

Series Preview: Orioles (66-53) vs. Astros (61-59)

Dallas Keuchel of the Astros yells.
After suffering through a two-game sweep dealt by the Red Sox, the Orioles will now look to shake off the last two disheartening nights in the first game of a four-game set against the Astros tonight at Camden Yards. The Orioles (66-53) find themselves two games behind Toronto for first in the division and trail the Sox by one game for second place going into the upcoming clash versus Houston after dropping six of their last nine contests. And even though their home record still stands at an AL-best 39-19, […]
