Players went head-to-head with 80 third- through fifth-graders from John Ruhrah Elementary/Middle School, one of Baltimore's largest English as a Second...

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Turner hits for cycle in win over Rockies

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Turner hits for cycle in win over Rockies
Despite the freezing cold and rainy temperatures in Denver on April 25th, it was easily the hottest night of Trea Turner's career. The Nationals outlasted the Rockies 15-12, but Turner stole the spotlight as he hit for the cycle, drove in a career-high seven RBIs and scored four runs. With gametime temperature hovering around 37 degrees, donning a ski mask and warm gloves, Turner turned his fourth full game back from the disabled list into a stellar night with: * Single in the first* Two-run...

Some trade banter and other notes

Some trade banter and other notes
If the Orioles discuss trading closer Zach Britton - or any prominent player - and then pull off a deal, can it help the team address its biggest need? Will the Orioles get starting pitching in return? That would be desirable for the Orioles. With just two pitchers set for the 2018 rotation in Dylan Bundy and Kevin Gausman, they are going to need to add starters any way they can, and the trade front is one avenue that could work. The potential issue is that any contending team that wants to add...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Trumbo crushes first opening day walk-off homer in O's history

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Trumbo crushes first opening day walk-off homer in O's history
On April 3, Orioles fans were spoiled with a dramatic and thrilling opening day contest in a 2016 American League wild card game rematch against the Blue Jays. Tied 2-2 with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the 11th inning, O's slugger Mark Trumbo picked up right where he left off in 2016, when he led the majors with 47 home runs during the regular season. A solo shot to left-center field notched his sixth career walk-off homer, this one coming off Jason Grilli, which led the Birds to...

For Jageler and Brown, a week to remember in the booth

A comfort level he hasn't fully felt over the last week as he has continued to broadcast Nationals games, just in the entirely different medium of television. "I've done over 2,000 games on the radio," Jageler said. "You just do it. It's your routine. It's every day. And this is so different because I've done it...
