Baltimore Orioles get the walk-off win in 12 over Oakland Athletics

After a disappointing loss to the Athletics on Tuesday night, the Baltimore Orioles redeemed themselves with a walk-off win after 12 long innings. Like their other recent wins, the Baltimore Orioles hit multiple home runs against the AL West team. Fortunately, Manny Machado came through with the winning walk-off home run after 12 long innings.

Orioles closer Zach Britton getting an MRI on his knee

Zach Britton revealed after Wednesday's win that he's getting an MRI on his knee to check out a "minor" issue that's been "off and on" for him. Between the way that Zach Britton has occasionally looked on the mound since returning from the disabled list and the way that Orioles manager Buck Showalter has almost seemed reluctant to use him at times, the question of whether he was totally healthy has been something you've had to wonder for a little while. Following Wednesday's game, when Britton's American League record streak of consecutive saves came to an end, Britton revealed that he will...

Orioles try to break hearts, escape with walkoff win against Athletics, 8-7

Zach Britton’s consecutive save streak came to an end as the Orioles almost blew a must-win game. In the 12th inning, Manny Machado saved them with a walkoff homer. The Orioles got a quality start from their starting pitcher, scored eight runs, and still ended up needing to play 12 innings to beat the Oakland Athletics, 8-7, in the series finale on Wednesday afternoon. Manny Machado delivered the walkoff win in extra frames to give the O's a series win for the first time in three weeks. It wasn't a pretty game and it wasn't even fun. The game saw Zach Britton's consecutive save streak...

Wednesday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs. Athletics, 3:05

The Orioles haven't won a series since they swept the Royals. Are they good enough to change that this afternoon against the Athletics? Before this series against the Athletics started, it looked like the Orioles would be going up against Sean Manaea in the series finale today. The Orioles rocked him back in Oakland - so the Athletics have decided to scratch him today and call up rookie Daniel Gossett to make the start. Gossett, a 24-year-old righty, was Oakland's second round pick in the 2014 draft. He's made a total of 10 big league starts in his career, in which he has a 5.17 ERA. A...

Baltimore Orioles continue their win-one-lose-some August

After an exciting Baltimore Orioles win on Monday, the Tuesday night game against the Oakland Athletics did not go as well. The Baltimore Orioles cannot seem to get any momentum going as August continues along. Since the Orioles went on their West Coast trip on August 7, their record has been six wins and nine […] Baltimore Orioles continue their win-one-lose-some August - Birds Watcher - Birds Watcher - A Baltimore Orioles Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Orioles prospect Lucas Humpal talks impressive year at Delmarva

Orioles prospect Lucas Humpal talks impressive year at Delmarva

This week, we talked with Delmarva Shorebirds pitcher Lucas Humpal about his first full season in the Orioles system. This week, Orioles prospect Lucas Humpal took a few minutes to chat with us about his 2017 season, one that has been quietly building toward a very respectable campaign once it’s all wrapped up. On the year, Humpal has made 23 starts and tossed 140 innings, keeping his ERA at a very steady 3.92. In those innings, he’s allowed 138 hits but has walked just 30 batters, a K/9 rate of only 1.9. It’s been relatively smooth-sailing for most of the year, but Humpal still...

The Orioles starting rotation that could have been

The Orioles starting rotation that could have been

It is no secret that the Orioles starting rotation is bad. They could have had a better one, if not for a series of moves over the last several seasons. The Orioles starting rotation has been terrible in 2017. They are sporting a 5.63 ERA, which does not include last night’s game. That remains the worst ERA in the American League and the second worst in baseball, behind only the Cincinnati Reds. The starting rotation has been the Orioles’ Achilles heel for the past several seasons. In prior years, they were able to patch together a viable rotation. That hasn't worked out this year, as...

Orioles prospects 8/22: A night full of highlights

Chance Sisco, DJ Stewart and Cedric Mullins all go deep. Hunter Harvey throws three scoreless. Pitching was in short supply Tuesday night. All five O’s main minor league teams were at home Tuesday night, as was the big club. Across the Mid-Atlantic region, lots to take in for fans of the orange and black. And as far as trends, pitching for the home teams was a struggle most everywhere. Charlotte Knights (White Sox) 8, Norfolk Tides 7 Tuesday was “Baseball Card Giveaway Night” in Norfolk for fans 17 and under. While fans enjoyed the cards, a more fitting name would have been “Run...

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles still can't win two in a row

In a surprising development, it's hard to win when your starting rotation is bad. In today's links, Buck's standing by the veterans, the Boogs Powell meetup, and more. Hello, friends. Another day has dawned with the Orioles in fourth place in the American League East. They are now 11.5 games behind the division-leading Red Sox, a fact I mentioned mostly for completion's sake rather than any expectation that they are going to still do something about that. More significantly, the Orioles are now four games below .500 and 4.5 games out of the second wild card spot with 36 games still to play....

Oakland Tops the Orioles 6-4 in Disappointing Loss

Trailing 5-0 early Baltimore made it a game, but Ubaldo Jimenez’s shaky start and missed chances to score late spell doom     Despite the ups and downs of a long season, with 37 games to go on the schedule, Baltimore (61-64) entered Tuesday 3.5 games behind the second Wild Card leading Minnesota Twins. Channeling Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber – “So you’re telling me there’s a chance? Yeeeaaaa!” Eleven days ago in Oakland, the A’s Paul Blackburn (3-1, 3.46) took the bump against Baltimore and gave up 10 hits and four runs. The O’s ended up losing the game 5-4 and tonight,...

Tuesday night Orioles game thread: vs. Athletics, 7:05

The Orioles haven’t won two games in a row since concluding a sweep on August 2. Maybe Ubaldo Jimenez can help them change that against the Athletics tonight. At this point, there’s not much that’s new to say about the 2017 Orioles on a daily basis. Who they are today is still who they were yesterday and who they were last month and the month before that too. Only a lengthy winning streak that they may not be capable of pulling off could change that in any meaningful way. Still, here they are. Going into today, where they sit 3.5 games back of a wild card spot with five teams to pass,...

The Rundown: The Remarkably Consistent Adam Jones

The Orioles won their fifth straight series opener on Monday night against the Oakland A’s, but they have failed to win the series on each of the previous four occasions. This will come as no surprise, but that formula needs to change now if the O’s really want to get back in the playoff race. It will begin tonight with Ubaldo Jimenez taking the mound and trying to bounce back from his Ubaldo-like performance against the Mariners in which he allowed six earned runs. Jimenez finished with 11 strikeouts and […] The post The Rundown: The Remarkably Consistent Adam Jones appeared first on...

Don’t expect the Orioles to make major additions in the offseason

A very similar-looking team will be donning the black and orange next summer The 2017 Baltimore Orioles are a team with some evident flaws. But when the club refused to sell their stars at the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of July, it became quite clear that they were preparing to re-tool for 2018. Several big contracts will be coming off the books this winter, allowing the O’s to dive into the free agent and trade markets full bore, right? Nah, probably not. Salary dump These are the Orioles’ players with contracts expiring at the end of this season:-Jeremy Hellickson ($17.2...

Orioles prospects 8/21: Alex Wells is marvelous again

Four Orioles affiliates were in action on Monday night. Three of them lost and only one scored more than two runs. On the bright side, Alex Wells was good again. Charlotte (White Sox) 4, Norfolk Tides 2 Despite out-hitting the Knights by a 10-4 margin, the Tides were losers in the game. They went 3-13 with RISP and still managed to score only two runs, and they left 11 men on base. Sometimes that's just the way it goes. Starting pitcher Jayson Aquino ran into trouble in the fifth inning, giving up two different two-run home runs. These were the only runs the Knights scored in the...

No eclipse today, unless the Orioles win and pass some people in the standings. In today's links, the O's get another Player of the Week, the Boogs meet, and more. Hello, friends. Another day has dawned with the Orioles in third place in the American League East. They're now 10.5 games behind the division-leading Red Sox. More importantly, though, they are 3.5 games behind both the Twins for the second wild card spot, with a total of five teams still to pass.

Orioles blast-off against Athletics in 7-3 victory

Orioles blast-off against Athletics in 7-3 victory

The O’s hit four home runs off of Chris Smith & Co., and Wade Miley acquitted himself nicely on the mound tonight for the Birds.  The result was a series-opening win for Baltimore. The last time these two teams met, Chris Smith squared off against Wade Miley to start the series. Chris Smith got rocked, with the Orioles hitting a bunch of home runs and Wade Miley navigated his way to a win somehow, allowing very few runs. Tonight, as they say, “was déjà vu all over again.” Both Miley and Smith threw 1-2-3 first innings, reminiscent of yesterday afternoon’s affair. It’s not a...

Monday night Orioles game thread: vs. Athletics, 7:05

The Orioles aren’t too far off from the time where every game is a must-win game. Wade Miley starts against the Athletics tonight. There’s nothing quite like sitting down to contemplate the Orioles chances, with the team already having lost two games in a row, knowing that Wade Miley and Ubaldo Jimenez will be starting the next two games. Oh, yes. If momentum is the next day’s starting pitcher, well, it’s no wonder that the Orioles have spent the whole season having problems. We have arrived at a point where it’s time for the Orioles to start winning some games or else stop...
