Darren O'Day is excited about his T-shirt night

Orioles reliever Darren O'Day is pretty fired up about tonight - and not just for the chance for the Orioles to win another game and get closer to their goal of making the playoffs. It's Darren O'Day T-shirt night at the Yard and all fans that come through the turnstiles will get one. Several Orioles were wearing theirs in the clubhouse before tonight's game. "Pretty ... read more

Andrew Miller may have a ring, but now he wants to actually pitch in the playoffs

The 2013 Boston Red Sox won the World Series and new Orioles pitcher Andrew Miller helped them get there. He just couldn't pitch when they did make the postseason. On July 6, 2013, Miller went down in a game against the Los Angeles Angels, injuring his left foot on a comebacker to the mound. Surgery was needed to repair ligament damage. His season was over ... read more

Joseph, Chen and Schoop's postgame comments after O's top Tampa Bay

After winning with five home runs last night, the Orioles had just one extra-base hit, a double, tonight. They had to grind out a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. "That is the best way to describe it," said catcher Caleb Joseph, who contributed a two-run single. "You are going to grind these games out. Most AL East games are that way. Coming off ... read more

Joseph and Schoop combine to drive in three as O's top Tampa Bay

It was a night where neither starter completed five innings and the game moved along at a snail's pace. But given the opportunity to produce big hits, the bottom of the Orioles lineup took advantage. Caleb Joseph - batting eighth - came up with a clutch two-run single, and Jonathan Schoop - the No. 9 batter - added an RBI hit of his own as ... read more

Since June 30, the Orioles are 16-5 at home with a 2.66 team ERA after going 19-21 in their first 40 games at the Yard. In their last 21 home ... read more

Another look at some of the Orioles' homer stats

After hitting five more homers last night, the Orioles have now hit 168 for the season, which easily leads the majors leagues. Colorado is second with 150, and Toronto and Houston are tied with 144. The big league average right now is 114. The Orioles are on a pace to hit 211 homers. They led the majors with 212 last season. They have seven seasons ... read more

After Cubs series, O's still elect to continue season, beat Tampa Bay

Yep, exaggerating to make a point with that headline. I do feel the large, large majority of Orioles fans put the club's series at Wrigley Field in its proper perspective. Maybe the remaining five percent of fans that - yet again - overreacted to a loss or two, can now come back in off the ledge. Baseball teams lose games, even to teams that are ... read more

Hardy, Tillman and Jones comment after Orioles win over Tampa Bay

For the first time in team history, the Orioles hit back-to-back homers and then added three in a row later in one game tonight. The last time that happened in the majors was June 19, 2012 when Toronto did it at Milwaukee. The Orioles hit five homers tonight in a 9-1 win over Tampa Bay in the opener of an 11-game homestand. "Just one of ... read more
