O’s game blog: Birds, Royals play series finale at Oriole Park

The Orioles have not won a series for almost a month and that run can end tonight. They’ve split the first two games against the Kansas City Royals with the series-deciding game set for tonight.

Hunter Harvey on bullpen role: “I hope I stay there”

Orioles right-hander Hunter Harvey can admit it now. There was a time during all his injury issues - including Tommy John surgery in 2016 - that he wondered if he would continue to play the game. Making the majors seemed a long, long way off. “With all the injuries and stuff, I had some negative thoughts go through my mind,” he said in the O’s ... read more

Hunter Harvey gets first major league win, homegrown trio pitches O’s to victory

Looking for offense to end a losing streak and back a good effort by right-hander Dylan Bundy tonight, the Orioles got some. Better late than never and it didn’t come in time for Bundy but it did for flame throwing reliever Hunter Harvey who picked up his first major league win.

Rio Ruiz on his recent run of success at the plate

Orioles third baseman Rio Ruiz has a bat that is trending up. He hit another homer last night, his third in seven games and his third in his past three home games.

In that game, Ruiz also walked twice and ... read more

This deep into year, Delmarva’s Grayson Rodriguez still bringing the heat

Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds right-hander Grayson Rodriguez seems to be getting better, if that’s possible, as the season gets longer. And for someone at age 19 in his first full season of pro ball, that is beyond impressive. His stamina has been solid through 83 1/3 innings. Over his past two starts, he’s thrown eight no-hit innings with 16 strikeouts. During a visit to Camden Yards ... read more

O’s fall in homestand opener for 13th loss in 14 games

The Orioles’ 86th loss of 2019 had elements seen often during the first 85 defeats. There was a baserunning adventure with a bad ending, a defensive miscue or two and a couple of homers allowed. This all happened after O’s lefty John Means had no-hit Kansas City on 66 pitches through five innings. He would not get an out in the sixth. Kansas City (45-80) ... read more

O’s game blog: The homestand begins

The Orioles were swept for the 11th time this ... read more
