O’s game blog: Dylan Bundy and O’s go for sweep against Mets

As the Orioles look for a two-game sweep of the New York Mets tonight, they will also look for right-hander Dylan Bundy (7-10, 4.70 ERA) to get back on track. In his last start versus Boston, Bundy went five innings and allowed eight hits and eight runs (seven earned). Over his past six starts since the beginning of July, Bundy is 1-3 with a 7.72 ... read more

Adam Jones on Cedric Mullins and playing in right, plus farm notes

Maybe playing right field is going to be good for Adam Jones on offense. I’m kidding here, but Jones did go 2-for-4 last night with a double and solo homer. In five games as a right fielder, he’s 7-for-20 and batting .350/.409/.600 with an OPS of 1.009. Interviewed after last night’s 6-3 win over the New York Mets, Jones wasn’t offering much yet when asked ... read more

Cashner was solid and Davis hits go-ahead homer (with quotes)

Getting a solid starting pitching effort and a key late-game homer led the Orioles to a win tonight over the New York Mets. When the 2018 season began, they probably envisioned more than a few games going this way, but at least it did tonight to keep the Orioles from falling 50 games under the .500 mark. Chris Davis homered in the seventh to break ... read more

O’s game blog: Andrew Cashner pitches series opener against Mets

When they played a two-game series against the New York Mets in early June at Citi Field, the Orioles swept the two games. They won 2-1 and 1-0 behind Alex Cobb and Dylan Bundy. In those games, O’s pitchers allowed one run and eight hits. Tonight they host the Mets to begin another two-game series. This one begins at 7:05 p.m. at Camden Yards and ... read more

Cody Carroll starts to settle in with O’s, looks for consistent results

New bullpen right-hander Cody Carroll has pitched four times for the Orioles since they acquired him from the Yankees in the July 24 trade for closer Zach Britton. Carroll pitched two scoreless innings his first two times out on 31 pitches. But his last two games have seen him walk five and allow three runs over 1 2/3 innings. After posting strong numbers this year ... read more

All this losing could lead the Orioles to the top draft pick

You get very few rewards for losing, but a reward of sorts for the 2018 Orioles with all their losing would be a high draft pick in 2019. Perhaps, for just the second time in team history, the Orioles will secure the No. 1 pick in the June 2019 First-Year Player Draft, for losing more than any other this year. But for that distinction, they ... read more

Winless weekend not uneventful for the Orioles

The Orioles went 0-4 over the weekend versus Boston and fell to 49 games under .500 at 35-84 after Sunday’s loss. Boston completed the four-game sweep, but not everything from the weekend was a downer. Looking back at the weekend: Mullins arrives: The Orioles finally called up Cedric Mullins and we had a changing of the guard in the outfield. Mullins took over in center ... read more

Chris Sale fans 12 and Boston completes sweep (quotes added)

Boston left-hander Chris Sale was dominating the Orioles today for five innings. But in the sixth they got a reprieve when the Red Sox went to right-hander Tyler Thornburg. The O’s were saved by the fact that Sale was coming off the disabled list and Boston held him to 68 pitches this afternoon. But they were 68 very impressive pitches. His five scoreless innings led ... read more
