The Orioles just completed their longest stretch of the season between games against a division rival. They have played 21 straight non-AL East games since May 7, going 12-9. It was a stretch scheduled for 22 games, shortened by a ... read more

A look at the Tillman-Wieters pairing and some notes on the offense

After a miserable game yesterday and an 11-4 loss at Cleveland, right-hander Chris Tillman (6-1, 2.61 ERA) will take the mound for the Orioles this afternoon.

Caleb Joseph has ... read more

After his latest struggles, what is next for Ubaldo Jimenez?

On a day the Orioles hoped that right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez would begin to turn his season around, things instead got worse. With an ERA of 7.81 over his last five starts coming into this game, Jimenez allowed four runs in the first inning today and lasted just 1 2/3 in the Orioles’ 11-4 loss at Cleveland.

Fewer strikeouts, more runs lead to win at Cleveland (plus other notes)

Strikeouts, what strikeouts? Even for a free-swinging team like the Orioles, the series in Houston was an outlier when you look at 52 strikeouts in three games. It was a major league record after all, so not only do we not see that often, we had never seen that. Through Thursday’s games, there were four American League teams striking out at a greater rate than ... read more

Machado has four hits, Bundy gets first win as losing streak ends

Three runs on two swings and a highlight-reel double play. After the Orioles’ offensive struggles in Houston, the offense broke out tonight and two big hits in the seventh inning helped lead the way. Their middle infield on defense came up big, too. Tied 3-3 in the seventh, Chris Davis’ RBI double off reliever Zach McAllister gave the Orioles a 4-3 lead. On the next ... read more
