Bowie, Md. - The Baysox (4-4) led the Akron Aeros (2-5) from start to finish in a 5-1 win Thursday evening in the home opener in Bowie for the team's third straight win. Baysox starter Kevin Gausman cruised in his second start of the season, pitching six innings and allowing one run on two hits while striking out five in the win. "In Harrisburg, I think I was around the zone too much and tonight I just tried to focus on hitting my spots early in the count and then expanding the zone later," Gausman said. "It's always good to come home and get the first W in the ballpark. This is the first time I have pitched here so it was kind of cool for me." The Baysox used a two-out rally to score first in the bottom of the third inning against Akron starter T.J. House. Center fielder Xavier Avery recorded the Baysox first hit of the game with a single to center field and left fielder Kyle Hudson followed with a single to left field. Second baseman Ty Kelly brought ...

The Orioles and Holding Runners: Showalter’s Gambit

The party line is defensive coverage in the three-four hole, but it probably isn’t that simple. Knowing Buck Showalter, some gamesmanship is at play as well. The Baltimore manager has his first baseman, Chris Davis, playing a few steps off the bag when holding runners. Not just the slow-of-foot — all runners, all the time. The situation doesn’t matter. According to Orioles...

Adam Jones with costly drop while blowing a bubble

Adam Jones was caught chewing on the job. The Baltimore Orioles center fielder had a crucial drop in the 7th inning with bases-loaded and two outs against the New York Yankees. Not the first time gum got in the way of a catch. Jones had a drop during the ALDS that turned into a Jeter triple.

Adam Jones drops fly ball in center (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Adam Jones is beginning to develop a reputation for missing fly balls in the outfield. On Friday, his error cost the Baltimore Orioles three runs against the New York Yankees. Vernon Wells was up with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 7th and the game tied at two. Wells drilled a 93 mph fastball to center, and Jones went back...

Davis repays Orioles' patience with power surge

As we all know by now, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has a torrid – as well as historic – start to the 2013 season. Over the past few seasons, he has become not only a star, but an endearing presence to the Orioles fan base not only because of his freakish power and six-foot-three physique, but his ever-improving ability at the plate. The baseball world...

Yankees Turn 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 Triple Play Against Orioles in Eighth Inning (Video)

The Orioles were threatening against the Yankees in the top of the eighth inning Friday, but some slick fielding and poor running put an end to that. With two on and nobody out, Manny Machado grounded to second baseman Robinson Cano, who threw to second base to record a force out. Then, shortstop Jason Nix threw to third base, where Kevin Youkilis caught Alexei Casilla in a rundown...

Yankees turn triple play in win over Orioles

On Friday night, the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2, and while Adam Jones' three-run error is going to get all of the headlines, the Yankees had a pretty unique play of their own on the defensive side of the field: they turned a triple play in the top of the eighth when the Orioles had a prime opportunity to rally back. With men on first and second, Manny...
