Manny Machado homers twice, but O’s fall to Cleveland 7-3

The Orioles got some early offense going against two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber, who had allowed just one run in his last two starts combined. But it would not be enough today. Orioles right-hander Andrew Cashner allowed eight hits and four runs over six innings - the exact numbers as Chris Tillman Saturday - as Cleveland beat the Orioles 7-3 in front of 27,394 ... read more

O’s game blog: It’s Cashner against Kluber at Camden Yards

With a team batting average of just .216 for the season and a club that is scoring just 3.3 runs per game, today the Orioles face a two-time Cy Young Award winner. Right-hander Corey Kluber, the AL Cy Young winner in 2014 and 2017, will face the Orioles this afternoon at Camden Yards.

Taking stock of the struggling offense and Tanner Scott’s outing

The Cleveland Indians pitching staff has been on a roll. The Orioles hitting has definitely not. That has been a bad combination in this series for the Orioles. Thanks to Dylan Bundy, they managed to win on Friday night, but they are batting .138 (8-for-58) the past two nights against Cleveland pitchers. The Orioles have scored a total of 15 runs in eight home games ... read more

Tillman on his outing, Sisco on three caught stealing

After pitching to an ERA of 11.91 with a WHIP of 2.824 through three starts, right-hander Chris Tillman needed to pitch better in a hurry. He did today but the Orioles were blanked on two hits by Cleveland’s Mike Clevinger in a 4-0 loss that drops them to 6-15. They’ve lost nine of 11 and have been held to three runs or fewer 14 times ... read more

Cleveland blanks the Orioles 4-0 behind Mike Clevinger

Clevinger pitched a complete-game two-hitter, as the Tribe beat the Orioles 4-0. He walked two and fanned three to improve to 2-0 with an ERA of 1.75. Clevinger threw 107 pitches, 70 or strikes. The ... read more

O’s game blog: Chris Tillman faces Cleveland at Camden Yards

The Orioles have won back-to-back games just once this season. They beat the Yankees on April 5-6 at Yankee Stadium. A win today over Cleveland and they would double that total. The Orioles (6-14) host Cleveland (9-8) at Camden Yards in Game 2 of a four-game series and 10-game homestand. Baltimore won 3-1 last night behind right-hander Dylan Bundy. Today, Chris Tillman is set to ... read more

Left-hander Tanner Scott on rejoining the Orioles

We often hear Orioles manager Buck Showalter say that for a pitcher sometimes less is more. He is usually referencing velocity with that comment. That seems to be the case right now for left-hander Tanner Scott, who was recalled to the big leagues for the second time this season yesterday. Scott has a fastball that can touch 100 mph and did last year in the ... read more

Notes on ending two losing streaks, Bundy’s slider and more

So the Orioles got a much-needed win over a good team with Friday’s 3-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians. They ended an 11-game losing streak. Yes, I know they had lost their previous six games. But they had also lost their previous 11 games when scoring three runs or fewer. The Orioles were 1-11 on the year in such games. The only previous win was ... read more
