The Orioles kickoff a difficult stretch with a three-game set against the Blue Jays at Camden Yards.

Cedric Mullins will be in the lineup tonight but not atop it. Mullins will start in centerfield but bat seven spots below his usual place. Ryan McKenna will leadoff and play right field.

Austin Hays will return to the lineup and take left. Anthony Santander will serve as the designated hitter.

Tyler Nevin will get a start at third base with Ramón...

The Orioles have been getting right fielder Anthony Santander some practice at first base and could play him on the infield at least occasionally down the stretch.

Orioles-Blue Jays series preview: An A.L. East matchup with wild card implications

Can the Orioles make inroads in the wild card race with three games against one of the teams ahead of them?

So far this year, the Toronto Blue Jays have felt more like an idea than an actual baseball team. Here the Orioles are with 108 games in the books and they have played the Blue Jays four times. That’s nuts! Because of this weird schedule quirk, that means the Orioles play the Blue Jays in just about 28% of their remaining...

What does Mike Elias mean by “liftoff” for the Orioles?

Photo by Mitchell Layton/Getty Images

The GM had a noticeable shift in tone following the trade deadline. That could mean a whole lot of changes coming to Birdland this winter.

According to Orioles’ GM Mike Elias, the team is about to enter into a “decade-long window” of winning. It’s the type of comment that some will take as bloviating to cover up for a trade deadline in which Elias chose to sell rather than supplement the best Orioles team in six years. But others that have...

Orioles minor league recap 8/8: DL Hall bounces back and Bowie blows away the competition

DL Hall whiffed eight over 5.1 innings, the Baysox poked their head above .500 with an 18-run pounding of Harrisburg, and Coby Mayo hit his 15th homer of the season.

Triple-A: Nashville Sounds (Brewers) 9, Norfolk Tides 4

Norfolk got a good start from DL Hall but lost this one during a disastrous eighth inning. As clever as new Orioles farmhand Cade Povich made the O’s front office look for the Jorge López trade during his start on Saturday, Sunday’s outing was a bad look for...

Monday Bird Droppings: The Orioles begin a make-or-break stretch

The O’s get a heavy dose of playoff contenders for the remainder of the month, giving them a chance to make up ground in the Wild Card race.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

The Orioles took care of business against three sub-.500 teams these past nine games, going 6-3 against the Reds, Rangers, and Pirates. I’ll take that, even if yesterday’s forgettable 8-1 loss wasn’t the strongest way to finish up that stint.

Now comes the brutal stretch...

Orioles, Blue Jays kick off pivotal 3-game series

When the visiting Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles begin a three-game series on Monday night, they might as well get used to each other. Their matchups for the rest of the season could prove to be critical for a pair of teams aiming to snag wild-card spots in the American League.

Pirates end Orioles' winning streak at five

Pitcher Bryse Wilson gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a solid start, and Ke'Bryan Hayes hit a two-run homer in an 8-1 victory Sunday over host Baltimore, snapping the Orioles' five-game winning streak.

Bad bounces and a bad showing from the offense saw the O’s snap their 5-game win streak and lose ground in the Wild Card race.

After plenty of celebrating on Saturday night, the Orioles were struck with a post-anniversary hangover Sunday. Their bats fell quiet, a great first few of innings of pitching soured quickly, and they couldn’t turn...

Orioles look to complete the home sweep against Pittsburgh and run their winning streak to six games.

After celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Camden Yards in style Saturday night, the Orioles have an opportunity for yet another home series sweep today against the Pirates. It’s fitting that the Orioles are celebrating the best...

You can’t get an Adley Rutschman hug, but you can get an Adley Hugs t-shirt

Adley Rutschman has been everything an Orioles fan could have hoped and more. A couple of months into his Orioles career, he is the best hitter on the team. By measures like Wins Above Replacement, he’s the most valuable player on the team, thanks to his solid hitting and stellar defense at the premium position of catcher.

There’s one other great thing about Adley that isn’t measured in any kind of statistic or modern metric. Whenever he’s behind the plate after an Orioles win, he...

Orioles minor league recap 8/7: Stowers walks off, Povich makes a good impression

It was a successful night on the farm with an exciting walk off, an impressive debut, and more.

It was a good time in Norfolk last night with a final play that featured three players that many fans are desperate to see in Baltimore. With Gunnar Henderson (#2 prospect via MLB Pipeline) and Jordan...

Sunday Bird Droppings: The Orioles are one game out of a wild card spot

The Orioles sold out Camden Yards for a non-home opener yesterday for the first time in nearly five years.

Hello, friends.

It is August 7 and the Orioles are a game out of a playoff spot! They have played 107 of the 162 games they are scheduled to play and only one game separates the O’s from the Rays. Tampa Bay holds the third AL Wild Card presently, and dropped their Saturday game to the Tigers. With the Orioles picking up a 6-3 win over the Pirates -...

Streaking O's seek sweep of Pirates

The Baltimore Orioles have won five games in a row. The last time that happened this season, they ended up rifling off a 10-game winning streak. The Orioles will try to maintain their momentum as they go for a three-game sweep of the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates in the series finale Sunday afternoon.

Orioles topple Pirates for fifth straight win

Ryan McKenna drove in two runs and every player in Baltimore's lineup had a hit as the Orioles beat the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3 on Saturday. Four relievers combined on four no-hit innings to help the Orioles reach a five-game winning streak for the second time this season.

Saturday evening Orioles game thread, 5:05 ET

The Orioles are celebrating 30 years at Camden Yards tonight.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards turns 30 as the Orioles try to claim a series win against Pittsburgh in Game 2.

Tonight at Camden Yards what’s happening off the field is almost more exciting than the game itself. Baltimore is celebrating 30 years at Oriole Park, which officially opened for business on April 6, 1992. That day, the 35-year-old Rick Sutcliffe, who was not totally recovered from a bout of food poisoning, pitched...

Saturday Bird Droppings: Closing in on the Wild Card

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Four wins in a row, Mountcastle improvements, and a bullpen shuffle is working.

Good morning, Birdland!

Losing that game last night would have been awfully frustrating. The Orioles left 11 runners on base and went 2-for-15 with runners in scoring position. And it wasn’t because they were getting blown away at the plate. The entire lineup struck out just three times, and they managed 10 hits, including four for extra bases.

Instead, they beat the Pirates 1-0,...
