With Thursday’s home opener loss behind them and with a 1-3 record since a 3-0 start, the Orioles host the Boston Red Sox tonight. The Sox won 7-3 Thursday in the series opener, ending a four-game losing streak to the Orioles.

So far, some O’s that are not big strikeout guys have struck out big

As the Orioles look to cut down on their mounting strikeout totals, perhaps the thing they can rely on most of all is track record. Several of their players that are striking out a lot right now show strikeout rates more in line with league average or less, both recently and over their careers. That can provide some hope for a club that has fanned ... read more

A take on the rotation so far and moving forward

The Orioles bullpen, which was pretty airtight in the big win Wednesday night at New York, had a few leaks on Thursday afternoon in the home opener in Baltimore. We know the team is heavy on long-relief options, and we’re going to find out over time how the late-game relievers hold up and protect leads. So far, right-hander César Valdez had been outstanding in recording ... read more

Some issues crop up as O’s have lost three of four

If we are taking a big picture view, the Orioles are tied for first place and they have a 4-3 start. A winning overall start against Boston and New York. They’d likely take that record in every seven-game sample against those clubs. But since the club’s 3-0 start in Boston, where they scored 18 runs, they have hit less and won less. They’ve allowed seven ... read more

The O’s fall to ... read more

They host the Boston Red Sox in their 2021 home opener to start a three-game series. In a game where the Orioles were held to four hits and struck out 17 times, and ... read more

Another look at a wild 11-inning win at Yankee Stadium

On the night, the Orioles had just four hits. They went 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position. They struck out 17 times. Their starting pitcher didn’t get through five innings. They lost one-run leads in the eighth and 10th innings. But they won the game. It is not often we could see all that happen for the Orioles during a close game in the Bronx, ... read more

No sweep: O’s win a tense thriller 4-3 at New York (with quotes)

On a night they didn’t get much offense or a deep start from their No. 1, John Means, the Orioles did get a big win at Yankee Stadium. It was very, very hard-earned. A win that moved them alone into first-place at 4-2 atop the American League East as they head to Baltimore for the home opener tomorrow. A win that ended on a 9-2 ... read more
