Jonathan Schoop on making two key errors in two days

Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop has made four errors this year, and two have come in the last two games. They were both costly in Orioles losses.

Wilson began the season on the O’s opening day roster, was optioned out April 19 and returned for one day on May 4. But it was an important day ... read more

After rocky road trip, O’s steady the ship against Toronto

Orioles starting pitching had a good weekend, as the team took two of three games from Toronto. Entering the weekend, the O’s rotation had produced just one quality start the last seven games.

Wade Miley, Caleb Joseph and Trey Mancini after O’s loss to Jays

They have faced him three times this year, and he has an ERA ... read more
