    The Yankees lost 6-4 to the Rays last night, so the Orioles had yet another chance to gain sole possession of first-place in the American League East. They failed to make it happen. In front of a packed house at O.co Coliseum, the Athletics topped the Orioles 3-2 last night. Yes, the Orioles actually lost…

    Nick Markakis had pins inserted into his broken left thumb during surgery Tuesday morning and is still hoping to play next month if the Orioles reach the postseason. “Originally, they thought they were going to put a plate in there,” manager Buck Showalter said. “They were concerned about the range of motion.

    There’s once again a tie atop the AL East standings. The Orioles used six homers, including two more from Mark Reynolds, to ward off a big eighth-inning comeback and beat the Yankees 10-6 on Thursday. The Bombers scored five times in the top of the eighth without the benefit of a homer to even the…

  7. Chris Davis hits three homers in Orioles’ victory

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    Chris Davis' third home run

    Chris Davis was further phased out of the Rangers’ plans two years ago by the Adrian Beltre signing. Now an Oriole, he watched Wednesday as Beltre hit three homers against his club in a Rangers rout. Davis, though, didn’t take it lying down. He joined Beltre and became the ninth player this year to hit…

    Aug 16, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Wilson Betemit

    Wilson Betemit has been a useful cog in the bottom half of the Baltimore order this year, but the Orioles will have to do without him for the foreseeable future after he was diagnosed with torn cartilage and a bone bruise in his right wrist. He was placed on the DL retroactive to Aug. 12…

    To determine the draft order for their fantasy football league Orioles players bought Maryland blue crabs, assigned one to each team, and raced them through a tunnel in Camden Yards. League commissioner/Orioles closer Jim Johnson and setup man Darren O’Day were in charge, as O’Day explained to Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun: Jim and…

    Aug 8, 2012, 11:38 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Now here’s a surprise: Baltimore is calling up 20-year-old shortstop Manny Machado from Double-A Bowie on Thursday, MLB.com’s Britt Ghiroli reports. Machado, the third overall pick in the 2010 draft, has been on fire of late, going 15-for-32 with three homers in his last nine games. He hit for the cycle on Saturday. Still, he hasn’t been…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

    Jul 27, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 10, Athletics 4: Backatcha, Athletics. A night after the A’s slammed the Jays, Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer to lead the charge for Toronto, ending the A’s seven game winning streak. This came after the A’s took a 3-0 lead, so nice moxie by the Blue Jays there. Mets 3, Diamondbacks 1:…

    Jul 10, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Nick Markakis grand slam

    Baltimore decided not to wait until the second half officially began, activating Nick Markakis from the disabled list after the outfielder missed the past six weeks with a broken hamate bone in his right wrist. Markakis showed he was ready to return by homering twice during a brief three-game rehab assignment in the minors. He…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  15. Nick Johnson homers, steals base, retains limbs

    May 11, 2012, 10:44 PM EDT

    Nick Johnson

    I’m really pretty happy to see Nick Johnson back in the majors. The 33-year-old Johnson had his best game of the season Friday in a win over the Rays, going 2-for-2 with a homer, a walk and a stolen base as Baltimore beat Tampa Bay 4-3. It was his first homer of the season. Credit…

    May 8, 2012, 12:37 AM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks

    The Red Sox may not be very good, but they certainly are resilient. Bouncing back from their second horrible loss of the season — a 17-inning game against the Orioles in which Chris Davis got the victory — the Red Sox lit up Jonathan Sanchez on their way to an 11-5 victory over the Royals…

    Tommy Hunter is a 25-year-old veteran of five big-league seasons with 61 starts and 372 innings in the majors, but today the Orioles demoted him to Triple-A. Hunter has struggled since Baltimore acquired him from Texas along with Chris Davis in exchange for Koji Uehara last July, throwing 105 innings with a 5.04 ERA and…

  18. Some folks in Baltimore didn’t get to see the end of yesterday’s game

    May 7, 2012, 9:43 AM EDT

    old TV

    When you have a six hour ballgame in a three hour television slot, something has to give.  Usually it’s whatever is scheduled for after that slot.  But not in Baltimore yesterday: The Orioles used designated hitter Chris Davis to pitch the 16th and 17th, and he got the win after a 3-run home run by…

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

  20. Chris Davis goes 0-for-8, gets the win in 17-inning game

    May 6, 2012, 7:46 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    It wasn’t pretty, but in many ways, Chris Davis had the most remarkable day on a baseball field that I can ever remember. Starting at DH for the Orioles, Davis fanned in his first five at-bats, hit into a double play in his sixth and grounded out in his seventh before moving to the mound…

    aaron cook reuters

    Veteran right-hander Aaron Cook was able to stay in the game Saturday after suffering a nasty cut on his left knee while trying to tag out the Orioles’ Chris Davis at home plate during his Red Sox debut. But it apparently wasn’t a minor injury. According to CSNNewEngland.com‘s Red Sox Talk, Cook was placed on…

  23. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Question

    It was a long offseason, my friends. A light winter in these parts but a harsh one all the same. The usual offseason non-stories seemed even less-satisfying than normal. On a personal level, I spent many long, dark hours searching for meaning and happiness in a world that seemed uncompromising, unforgiving and indifferent to humanity.…

Such is life in the AL East. Rotation Jason Hammel – R Zach Britton – L Jake Arrieta – R Wei-Yin Chen – L Tommy Hunter – R…

    Feb 22, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Koji Uehara trade rumors swirled for most of the offseason and at one point the reliever vetoed an agreed-upon trade to Toronto, but Texas general manager Jon Daniels no longer expects to deal him. Daniels told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that the Rangers “have no moves planned or anything like that” and “are ready to…
