Series Notebook: One to Quickly Forget

baseball players trot around the bases as the pitcher watches.
And as the rain continues to pour as I write this, the current dreariness outside seems to perfectly fit the dampened mood in Birdland after getting swept over a two-game mini-series versus none other than the Red Sox. As a result, Boston has now leapfrogged the Orioles for second place in the division while the Blue Jays now hold a two-game advantage over the Birds at the top of the table. The white-hot Red Sox will now depart Baltimore on a six-game winning streak. It’s not the end of the […]

After a long and winding road trip and a week on the west coast, the Orioles will head home to take on the Boston Red Sox for a two-game mini-series before hosting the Astros for a four-game series in the latter part of the week. The Orioles (66-51) ended the road trip level at 5-5, but find themselves deadlocked with the Blue Jays for first place in the AL East entering the second half of August. On the other hand, the Orioles will be returning home to host the Sox […]

Series Notebook: O’s Cap West Coast Trip with a Bang

Jonathan Schoop and Manny Machado of the Orioles celebrate a home run.
Wow…what a way to end a road trip! After Sunday’s dramatic and epic come-from-behind win against the Giants, the O’s are heading home on a high note. If that doesn’t get your adrenaline flowing…consult your doctor. And since they have an off day today, party it up tonight boys! You’ve earned it. In fact, Jonathan Schoop shouldn’t have to pay for a meal (or a drink) in Baltimore for the rest of the season. The Orioles kicked off the series with an impressive 5-2 win in Friday’s series opener on […]

Series Preview: Orioles (64-50) @ Giants (65-49)

After losing their grip on first place in Oakland, the Orioles will now look to bounce back and end their ten-game road swing on a high note against the first-place Giants. The Orioles (64-50) find themselves just a half a game behind the Blue Jays for first place in the AL East after posting a 3-4 record during their current road trip. The O’s 25-33 road record, however, remains a black eye on an otherwise excellent season. The O’s also fell to 5-5 in the month of August after dropping […]

Series Notebook: O’s End Brutal Series on a High Note

Four Baltimore Orioles players celebrate after a grand slam.
With the Orioles riding high in first place going into the four-game clash against the last place Athletics, most everyone expected the O’s to cross the Golden Gate Bridge with at least a pair of wins in hand, if not all four, before taking on the Giants. But with the odds stacked against them, the A’s managed to flip the script, taking the first three games of the series, while the O’s had to save face again to avoid being dealt a sweep on Thursday. If this series was plotted, […]

After banking two wins during the first leg of the ten-game road trip, the Orioles will now fly to Oakland to take on the A’s for a four-game set before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and heading into San Francisco. The Orioles (63-47) hold a slim one-game advantage over the Blue Jays for first in the AL East as they hit the West Coast. While the Orioles current road record stands at a subpar 24-30, they have improved slightly away from Camden Yards by posting a 6-8 mark over the […]

Series Notebook: Offense Explodes, O’s Take Two from ChiSox

Manny Machado low-fives Bobby Dickerson as he rounds third after a home run.
Fresh off of nabbing two of three from the Rangers at Camden Yards, the Orioles didn’t skip a beat versus the White Sox at U.S Cellular Field over the weekend, banking another pair of wins and a series victory while the offense (and the starting pitchers) put on a show. The Orioles jumped out to a 4-0 lead on Friday after Pedro Alvarez got the party started in the first inning with a solo shot, followed by Manny Machado scoring two on a double and Mark Trumbo picking up an […]

After taking two out of three against the best team in the American League, the Orioles will take a trip to the South side of the Windy City to take on the Chicago White Sox for a three-game set before hitting the Bay Area next week. The Orioles (61-46) are currently locked in a two-way tie with the Toronto Blue Jays (62-47) for first place in the AL East as they prepare to begin the imminent ten-game road swing. While the O’s aren’t as hot as they were in the […]

Series Notebook: O’s Take Two from AL-Best Rangers

Orioles players congratulate each other after a win.
Coming into a three-game battle against the AL’s best squad right after dropping two in a three-game set in Toronto, all eyes were on the Orioles to bounce back and hit the long and winding road on a high note. And the O’s did not disappoint, taking two of three games while falling a win shy of sweeping the stacked Rangers squad. The Orioles showed off in style in Tuesday’s 5-1 win in the series opener by clubbing four solo homers while the sparkling Dylan Bundy took another no-hitter into […]

After winning the final game of three-game clash in Toronto to avoid getting swept, the Orioles are set to kick off a three-game mini home stand versus the first place Texas Rangers at Camden Yards before hitting the road for a ten-game stretch. The Orioles (59-45) are clinging onto first place by the slimmest of margins, as the Blue Jays and the Red Sox are currently tied for second place and just a game behind the O’s for first place in the AL East. The O’s are also just 1-3 […]

Series Notebook: O’s Save Face, Hang onto First Place

J.J. Hardy throws as Russell Martin slides into him and Jonathan Schoop watches.
While losing two out of three wasn’t the plan going into Toronto, the Orioles will head home still clinging onto first place in the division. After dropping a tense game by a score of 6-5 in the series opener, the Orioles were again facing a sweep versus a division rival after dropping the middle game of the three-game set by a score of 9-1. But eventually, after a hard-fought 6-2 win that took 12 innings of play on Sunday, the Orioles finally snapped their five-game losing skid. The Orioles came […]

Series Preview: Orioles (58-43) @ Blue Jays (57-45)

After being dealt a 6-3 loss during their one-night stand in Minneapolis, the Orioles will now fly across the Northern Border to take on the Toronto Blue Jays for a three-game set at Rogers Centre over the weekend. The three-game clash between the two division rivals represents a direct battle for the top spot in the AL East, as the Orioles hold a slim 1.5-game advantage over their hosts for first place. The O’s will also be hoping for a better outcome than the last time they visited Toronto in […]

Series Notebook: Blown Chances Cost O’s Against Colorado

Matt Wieters slides into second and is tagged out by the Rockies player.
Just two days after boosting their record to a season-high 18 games above five-hundred, the O’s had their script flipped by the Rockies, who snatched two in a row from the Orioles to hand the Birds just their second series loss at home to date. After Nolan Arenado’s solo blast tied the game at 1-1 in the series opener on Monday, former Oriole Mark Reynolds would come up big with a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh. But after leveling the score in the bottom of the seventh, the Orioles […]

Fresh off of reclaiming first place after sweeping the Cleveland Indians, the Orioles are set to host the Colorado Rockies for the first time in three years at Camden Yards for a three-game showdown before hitting the road again. The Orioles hold a slim 1.5-game lead over the Red Sox in the battle for the top spot in the AL East, and at 57-40, they currently represent the best that the AL has to offer. The O’s also own the best home record in the majors to date, posting an […]

Series Notebook: O’s Sweep Tribe to Climb Back Atop AL East

Nolan Reimold scores as his teammates wait for him at home.
Directly after a woeful performance in the Bronx, the Orioles faced the AL’s best team in the form of the mighty Indians with their high scoring offense and stout pitching staff. And just days after losing their grip on first place, the Orioles quickly snapped back into form and regained their first place status by sweeping the talented Indians squad at Camden Yards. It all started on Friday when Dylan Bundy pitched his best game of his promising career to date, allowing just a single unearned run on five hits […]

After a nightmare of a visit to the Bronx, the Orioles will now fly home to take on the Cleveland Indians for a three-game set starting Friday in the opener of a six-game home stand. The upcoming clash of the O’s and Tribe will feature MLB’s best home squad as the Orioles come into the series with an amazing 33-14 record at Camden Yards. However, they will be facing off against a club that boasts an MLB-best 30-22 record on the road. The Orioles (54-40) trail the Red Sox by […]

Series Notebook: O’s Narrowly Avoid Four-Game Sweep in Bronx

Jonathan Schoop watches his hit as the Yankees catcher looks on.
After three brutal nights of watching the Yankees brush aside our Orioles, I guess the only silver lining of the trip to the Bronx is the relief of not being swept over the four-game series. Still, talk about a bitter end to a road trip. And as a direct result of the slip up in the Big Apple, the O’s find themselves in second place in the division for the first time since June 4th, a stretch spanning six weeks. The race for the AL East pennant is now condensed […]

After kicking off the second half of the season by taking a best out-of-three series in St. Petersburg against the Rays, the Orioles will now fly to the Bronx to take on their permanently loathed rival, the New York Yankees, for a four-game set at Yankee Stadium. The Orioles (53-37) take a two-game advantage over the Red Sox for first place in the AL East into the Bronx and will be looking to improve upon their glittering 24-14 record against division rivals. They currently sit at 20-23 away from Camden […]

Series Notebook: Birds Start Second Half on a High Note

Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy low-five after a home run.
Three words: Baseball is back! Fresh off of the All-Star break, the Orioles didn’t skip a beat during their trip to St. Petersburg, taking two out of three against the Rays at the Trop. Down 2-0 early on Friday, Pedro Alvarez launched a solo shot to cut the lead in half in the third inning before Jeff Maile knocked in a run to put the Rays back up 3-1. Alvarez would come through again with an RBI double in the fifth before Matt Wieters leveled the score with an RBI […]

Series Preview: Orioles (51-36) @ Rays (34-54)

Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL.
With just under one half of the season left on the calendar, the Orioles remain in the driver’s seat in the AL East going into mid-July with a two-game lead over the Sox and Blue Jays for first place. In the eyes of the national media, this wasn’t the result most were expecting. In fact, most had this Orioles squad not only missing the playoffs, but scrapping to finish near or above five-hundred. The special thing about this squad in particular is the fact that they’ve never needed the hype […]
