Orioles follow division clincher with shutout loss to Red Sox (updated)

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde arrived at the ballpark today knowing that a victory didn’t really matter in the grander scheme. His team clinched the division title last night. It already established home-field advantage in the playoffs. The original lineup was missing Anthony Santander and Gunnar Henderson to let them rest. Adley Rutschman and Ramón
After clinching the American League East with a win Thursday night, the Orioles still have three games to play in the 2023 regular season, beginning with tonight at home versus Boston. At 100-59 coming into tonight, the Birds could finish with 103 wins, which would be third-most in club history. Last night's 2-0 win gave the Orioles their 10th AL E
ATLANTA – The symmetry wasn’t lost on Tanner Rainey. As he stood at his locker at Truist Park, a member of the Nationals’ active roster for the first time in 14 months, the right-hander couldn’t help but think about the fact he was in this exact same location the last time he was a member of the active roster, before he tore his elbow ligament, bef
The Orioles are starting veteran Kyle Gibson on Saturday and remain undecided about Sunday, which would be Kyle Bradish under pre-clinching circumstances. Uncharted territory for the franchise under the current regime. “We’re still kind of playing with some things,” said manager Brandon Hyde. Hyde isn’t ready to detail how the Orioles are handling
For some of the youngest Orioles, winning an American League East championship last night was something they had talked about when they were together on the farm. Then those players rose through the ranks in the minors and now are part of a 100-win team in Baltimore. “That is what you dream of when you get drafted,” O’s 22-year-old rookie Gunnar He
ATLANTA – Hello from Truist Park, where the Nationals and Braves wrap up the regular season this weekend. The Nats, as you probably know, are hoping to win at least one more game and finish the year with 70 victories. The Braves, meanwhile, have already clinched home-field advantage all the way through the World Series, so there’s really nothing at
The playoffs are clinched. The division is clinched. And now, the Orioles can intensify their focus on getting the rotation and roster prepped for the American League Division Series, and reveling in the rest that’s coming to them with the bye. Cedric Mullins is batting leadoff tonight with Gunnar Henderson out of the lineup. Heston Kjerstad is in
The Orioles announced a renewed partnership with GOVERNOR WES MOORE, the State of Maryland, and the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA). This agreement secures 30 more years of the Orioles at their iconic home of Camden Yards and brings with it the opportunity to reimagine the land surrounding the ballpark, marking private sector investment and develo
We have reached the final weekend of the 2023 season, with the Nationals closing things up in Atlanta against a Braves team that already locked up a sixth straight division title and owns the majors’ best record. In the big picture, there’s not a whole lot at stake at Truist Park over the next three nights. Which isn’t to say there’s nothing at sta
We didn’t need to see the Orioles take their magic number from one to zero to know that Brandon Hyde is the right manager for this team. That should have been apparent well before last night. But after the Orioles won the AL East with a 2-0 victory over Boston and Hyde had been doused in the clubhouse, he made his way to the interview room where he
Heston Kjerstad grabbed a bat to hit on the field yesterday afternoon but paused to satisfy a reporter’s request for a minute of his time. That’s exactly how much of it he could spare, doing so with the usual smile and polite nature. Kjerstad would begin the game on the bench, hours after learning that he made Baseball America’s Minor League All-St
