Because You Asked - Heading Home

The month of July is behind us and the ol’ mailbag is swollen like a tick on a Doberman. The dog days of summer are upon us.

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said left-hander Keegan Akin, who tossed three scoreless innings last night in relief, will enter the rotation in Alexander Wells’ spot.

Martin: “I’m excited, obviously, to be here”

Richie Martin played five games on his injury rehab assignment and was redirected to New York. Never assuming that the Orioles wanted him back at Triple-A Norfolk. Just grateful for another chance in the majors. He’s still waiting for his first start since Sept. 29, 2019 in Boston, happily settling last night for an entrance in the sixth inning as shortstop Ramón Urías’ replacement. Martin ... read more

Yankees make short work of Wells and defeat O’s 13-1 (updated)

The home debut for Orioles rookie Alexander Wells remains on hold through five major league appearances. His acts are played on the road. Auditions that he hoped would lead to a regular gig.
