Dylan Bundy’s long road back leads to first win as a starter (plus trade talk)

I can remember a time when we wondered if Dylan Bundy would be treated like a Rule 5 draft pick this year. At one point in the spring, manager Buck Showalter wondered how things would go if Bundy was healthy but not getting major league hitters out. On the day after the Orioles announced that one top pitching prospect in Hunter Harvey would undergo Tommy ... read more

Dylan Bundy gets first win as a starter as O’s top Cleveland

Showing an effective pitch mix from the outset tonight, Orioles rookie right-hander Dylan Bundy picked up his first win as a starting pitcher as the O’s beat Cleveland 5-1 in the opener of a three-game series. Bundy’s secondary pitches were effective early on as he pitched a career-best five innings, allowing five hits and one unearned run. He did not walk a batter, fanned five ... read more

At least for a few games, the O’s rotation is trending up

Five times that was two earned runs or less. ... read more

Tillman wins 14th, Schoop drives in two as O’s end losing streak

The Orioles had a few at-bats in their series at New York where the clutch hits didn’t come, so Jonathan Schoop’s at-bat in the seventh inning today was a nice change. Clinging to a one-run lead over CC Sabathia and the Yankees, the Orioles’ second baseman delivered a key two-out, two-run double. It provided the Orioles a three-run lead and they went on to beat ... read more

O’s game blog: Tillman looks for 14th win (O’s add Brandon Bonilla)

The Orioles will try to end their road trip on a winning note today. That would allow them to end a four-game losing streak and avoid being swept four in a row at New York for the first time since Sept. 19-22, 2005. The Orioles have gone 3-10 at Yankee Stadium since the start of the 2015 season and are 12-20 there since 2013. The ... read more

A look at the offense, Gallardo’s outing and some trade talk

Well, look on the bright side: Yovani Gallardo went seven innings for the first time in over a calender year. That actually could be a positive and we’ll get to that in a moment. But first, the offense. It’s been offensive. It’s been real bad. Here are the latest numbers: The Orioles have scored just two runs in the first three games of this four-game ... read more
