Grayson Rodriguez and O’s relievers bury O’s in ridiculous 14-11 loss in Houston

A late three-run homer and a horrible Jacob Webb and Dillon Tate tandem spoiled Rodriguez’s pitching line, the defense was silly, and a late offensive explosion fell just short.

Baseball is “beautiful and horrifying,” like injured O’s starter John Means said the other day. How else to describe an MLB debut by Houston rookie Jake Bloss necessitated by...

The Orioles’ top of the rotation faces Houston rookie Jake Bloss, making his MLB debut.

Whew, it’s been an insane month of baseball. Since May 27, the Orioles have played only AL or NL East teams, with just one series against a losing team (Tampa Bay). They’ve had exactly two days off in that stretch, and also lost two key pieces of...

The Yankees are frustratingly downplaying their struggles against the Orioles

The New York Yankees have come up oddly flat in multiple big games against the Baltimore Orioles this season.

Baltimore Orioles Gunnar Henderson Talks Series Win over Yankees

The Baltimore Orioles faced a stiff test this week, heading on the road to face the New York Yankees. Right behind the Bronx Bombers in the AL East standings, this was a chance to gain some ground.

Orioles-Astros series preview: A non-East opponent at last

It’s been nearly a full month since the last time the Orioles played someone outside of the AL or NL East.

Riding high off of their series victory over the Yankees, which put the finishing touches on a successful three weeks of baseball against AL and NL East teams, the Orioles stay on the road and head to face the Houston Astros this weekend. This is an Astros team that’s underachieving up to this point in the season, bringing...

Orioles minor league recap 6/21: Tides blow five-run lead, Bowie falls in 12

Photo by Mark Blinch/Getty Images

The final scores were a bit of a bummer, but Connor Norby and Daniel Johnson provided highlights with the Tides.

Triple-A: Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) 9, Norfolk Tides 7

The Tides led 7-2 before allowing two runs in the sixth, three runs in the seventh, and two more in the eighth inning. A throwing error and a pair of walks hurt Morgan McSweeney in the seventh, and Luis González allowed the go-ahead run on a solo shot in the eighth inning....

Friday Bird Droppings: The Orioles humiliated the Yankees and made some history

John Jones-USA TODAY Sports

The O’s put up 17 runs for a decisive victory in the finale, setting a new MLB record for most consecutive non-losing series against their own division.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

So, are we having fun yet?

Just when you’ve run out of superlatives to describe the 2024 Orioles, they barge into Yankee Stadium and pull off a decisive series victory by hanging 17 runs in the finale against the best pitching staff in baseball. The O’s absolutely...

Orioles deliver righteous smiting unto Yankees, wrap up series with 17-5 win

Yankees pitcher Luis Gil started the day as the AL ERA leader. He won’t end it that way, courtesy of the Orioles.

You can be forgiven for thinking that this was going to be a tough one for the Orioles. In the rubber match of their series against the Yankees, with the “haven’t lost a series against the AL East” streak at stake, the O’s had to stare down the...

It feels like these teams have already played four games this week but it’s actually only been two

There has been so much on-field and meta-drama in the Orioles and Yankees series this week that it almost feels like they’ve played four games already. In fact, it’s only been the two, with the O’s losing the opener, 4-2, before winning in 10 innings last night, 7-6. The rubber match awaits here this afternoon.

Among the stakes in the game is...

Can the Orioles Win the AL East Without Kyle Bradish?

On Wednesday night, Gerrit Cole made his triumphant return to the New York Yankees rotation, striking out five across four innings in his 2024 debut. His efforts were not enough to secure a victory, however, and the Baltimore Orioles ultimately eked out a 7-6 win in extra innings.

Cedric Mullins’ hitting adjustments are coming at a fortunate time

He’s starting to cut down on ground balls, and the results are coming around nicely.

It’s been a dreary 2024 for Orioles outfielders at the plate. The outfield has been an offensive swamp for this team: the 24-year-old Colton Cowser is hitting just .229, Anthony Santander has found his power but is hitting just .227, and Austin Hays is hitting .241 with just two...

The lone affiliate winner on Wednesday night did it in a rather unconventional way.

Triple-A: Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) 4, Norfolk Tides 3

Chayce McDermott had some trouble with the long ball in this one. He gave up two home runs over his 5.2 innings, which inflated his line to four runs on five hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts. Nolan Hoffman tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief, and Matt Krook managed to emerge from his lone inning...

Thursday Bird Droppings: The resilient Orioles won another wacky one

Photo by Luke Hales/Getty Images

A whole bunch of crazy things happened in last night’s game and the Orioles came out on top. It’s agonizing and fun!

Hello, friends.

The Orioles? The Orioles! They did it again last night, with “it” in this case meaning that they played a game where a lot of awesome stuff happened, and also a lot of annoying and terrible stuff, with the game frustratingly going into extra innings after a Craig Kimbrel blown save, and with all of us in agony over how...

Yankees throw at Gunnar Henderson, still lose. Orioles win 6-5 in 10 innings

It was a real barn burner in New York with the Birds coming out on top

What a game. What a game! There were things to dislike about this game, for sure. Mostly the ineptness of the bullpen, which makes all worry about the future of the season. But there were so many more things to like than hate.

When I think back on this 6-5, extra-innings win over the Yankees, here is what I’ll remember: Cade Povich looked like he wouldn’t last...

Orioles Lose Ace to Season-Ending Elbow Surgery

Three is the magic number for the Baltimore Orioles, who announced on Wednesday that Kyle Bradish underwent season-ending elbow surgery. Bradish is the third Orioles starter in the past 17 days to undergo a procedure on their ulnar collateral ligament.

Orioles Call Up Newly Signed Utility Infielder from Triple-A

With third baseman Jordan Westburg considered day-to-day, the Baltimore Orioles called up infielder Nick Maton and optioned outfielder Kyle Stowers to Triple-A Norfolk. Westburg left Tuesday’s loss against the New York Yankees after colliding with outfielder Juan Soto.

Cade Povich makes his third career start. Gerrit Cole makes his season debut.

It somehow feels like the Orioles have been playing the Yankees for a week with all of the drama and discourse surrounding the fact that a pitch hit Aaron Judge. But it has only been one day and one game for this current series.

I’m not going to rehash all that happened in the wake of yesterday’s game, but if you want to see overreactions and...

The news isn’t surprising after Bradish’s second IL stint, but it still sucks.

It’s official: Kyle Bradish is out for the year and a lot of next year. Orioles GM Mike Elias announced prior to Wednesday’s game against the Yankees that Bradish underwent Tommy John surgery earlier today. You can start the 12-month clock and spend the 12 months hoping that it doesn’t...
