Bundy squanders early lead and Orioles lose late to Red Sox, 10-8 in 11 innings

On a night when Dylan Bundy seemed to have it all together, the Orioles scored in each of the first four innings against the first-place Boston Red Sox and took a five-run lead into the fifth. What could go wrong? That, of course, is something of a trick question in what has become a nightmarish...

Jiménez strikes out 10 as Orioles avoid sweep in the Bronx with 6-4 win over Yankees

A few weeks ago, it appeared that right-hander Ubaldo Jiménez had made his last start in an Orioles uniform when he was sent to the bullpen, but in Sunday’s 6-4 series finale win at Yankee Stadium, he provided the kind of start this floundering team desperately needed. Jiménez’s outing was a strange...

Schmuck: Orioles have to stop fooling themselves about the future of their starting rotation

It all happened so fast. Eleven days ago, the Orioles were one game out of the second American League wild-card slot and playing better than any other team in their division.

Orioles notes: Hays' short time in big leagues has been eye-opening; Jones gets day off

In promoting prospect Austin Hays on Sept. 5, the Orioles came to the conclusion that giving the 22-year-old a taste of the major leagues in September would benefit him more than playing through a playoff run at Double-A Bowie. Playing time has been scarce for Hays since his contract was selected...

Wade Miley's short outing a reminder of Orioles being overmatched at Yankee Stadium

The Orioles starting rotation seemed to have turned the corner this week in Toronto, and even though the club dropped two of three at Rogers Centre, it received solid starting pitching in three one-run games. But then the Orioles arrived in the Bronx, where Yankee Stadium’s typical volume was subdued...

Just how good do the Orioles have to be down the stretch to have chance at postseason?

Orioles held to four hits, fall 5-0 as Indians win 16th straight

It's dangerous business letting a club on a 15-game winning streak get out ahead early, and on Friday, the Orioles found out why. The host Cleveland Indians provided most of what they needed in a 5-0 licking of the Orioles at Progressive Field in a three-run first inning, and the American League's...
