O’s game blog: Orioles begin three-game series in Philly

The Philadelphia Phillies (5-6) have hit well but not pitched very well thus far in the 2020 season. They will host the Orioles for the next three nights at Citizens Bank Park.

Players helping players and more about the Bowie camp

While the Orioles have gotten off to a solid start to their season, the players not currently on their roster but on the 60-man player pool get their work in at the alternate site at Double-A Bowie. And while they wait for a call that might never come, the players there go beyond just getting themselves ready. According to Gary Kendall, one of the managers ... read more

Fourteen games into season, O’s have plenty to feel good about

Tarp follies or not, the Orioles have plenty to feel good about after a weekend of solid baseball in Washington, D.C. They outscored the Nationals 21-5 and were a few innings away from an 8-7 start to the 60-game season. During a year when 16 teams will get in the playoffs, a final regular season record of 32-28 will likely be good enough. Now we ... read more

O’s game blog: Trying for a sweep at Nats Park

The Yankees swept two straight in Baltimore, then the O’s took three straight from Tampa Bay and Miami took four in a row from Baltimore. Today we could ... read more

That escalated quickly: Eighth-inning homer barrage for the win

It happened fast for the Orioles. In a stunning three-home-run eighth inning, their dormant offense came to life big-time tonight and they rallied to beat the defending World Series champion Washington Nationals 5-3. They did it against their top late-inning relievers who played key roles in their 2019 championship run. All it took was two pinch-hit homers and an “Earl” - a three-run homer that ... read more

O’s game blog: Looking for two in a row in Washington

After Friday’s 19-hit, 11-0 win over the Washington Nationals, the Orioles and Nats play the second game of their series tonight at Nats Park. The Orioles (6-7) snapped a four-game losing streak while the Nationals (4-6) fell to 2-6 at home. The 19 hits were Baltimore’s most since Aug. 30, 2019 at Kansas City, when they had 21. According to STATS, the win marked the ... read more

O’s put it all together for one night, producing impressive result

Who could have predicted that after a 13-2 loss on opening night the Orioles would take the next two games at Boston? Or that they would sweep the Tampa Bay Rays, who won 96 games last year? Or they would be swept by the Miami Marlins, who had to retool their roster so drastically? Or that what happened last night would happen. Coming off four ... read more
