The Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox today, before a packed house of Orioles’ orange, 6-3. Michael Gonzalez was great and the bullpen came in and slammed the door shut. All in all it was just another day in Baltimore as sights like this have become almost too common. The starting pitching is fine, but flawed, the offense does its job (Manny Machado hits a double, Adam Jones hits an RBI and Chris Davis hits a homer), and the bullpen stymies the competition yet again. It has become such a standard script that it is almost boring to cover.
It is hard to believe that it wasn’t that long ago I was mustering the courage and ire to write about a team ten games under .500 as opposed to today. This evening Baltimore will sit down to dinner with their team 10 games over 500.
The thing that makes this Orioles team so dangerous is that they very quietly got to 10 games over. They didn’t get there with a massive win streak. They haven’t gotten there through a remarkable one-run victo...

I feel like I’ve written this sentence a lot in recent pieces, but the Baltimore Orioles were once again carried to a series win on the back of their staggering lineup and rock-solid bullpen.
The birds took three out of four from the AL-East leading Boston Red Sox, chopping their lead down to 1.5 games...
Top Baltimore Orioles prospects Dylan Bundy and Jonathan Schoop could be back playing in the minors within a month. Both players are making good progress in their recovery from flexor (Bundy) and back (Schoop) injuries, according to MLB.com's Derek Wetmore.
Starting pitcher Bundy is due to start throwing from 90 feet, with two 25-pitch sessions scheduled for Monday. He started...
The Baltimore Orioles are planning to start left-hander Zach Britton in place of ailing right-hander Jason Hammel on Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers.
Baltimore manager Buck Showalter says he doesn't expect Hammel's illness to be serious enough to put him on the disabled list. Hammel is 7-4 with a 5.24 ERA this season.
The Orioles sent Britton to Triple-A Norfolk...
A Maryland man hurt in a fight during a Baltimore Orioles game last month has moved to a rehab facility, and his lawyers said Monday they are looking for anyone who may have witnessed the exchange.
The family of 25-year-old Matthew Fortese, a doctor who treated him and his lawyers held a news conference Monday in Baltimore. The doctor said Fortese has moved to an in-patient rehabilitation...
The Baltimore Orioles have scratched Jason Hammel from tonight's scheduled start against the Detroit Tigers due to illness, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. Right-hander Jake Arrieta will replace Hammel on the mound tonight.
At this point, Baltimore is pushing Hammel back for at least one day as he recovers from a stomach virus that has swept through his home. If...
With a 5-4 win at Camden Yards on Saturday, the Boston Red Sox managed to end their five-game losing streak in Baltimore and extend their slim lead over the Orioles for first place in the American League East to 2.5 games. Despite the loss however, Baltimore has won 13 of their last 18 games against the Red Sox and have proven that they
A service organization outing for fathers and sons to a Baltimore Orioles game didn't stop Davie Jane Gilmour from joining her dad at the ballpark when she was a little girl.
Decades later, Gilmour is setting a precedent for Little League baseball, too.
Nearly 40 years after girls were allowed to officially play Little League, Gilmour is the first woman to lead the Board of...
Tough but not totally unexpected news as BC commit Travis Seabrooke signed with the Baltimore Orioles. The Canadian Lefty was supposed to be one of the guys to help rebuild BC baseball. Others in the incoming class will have to fill the void. Improvement from the guys we have wouldn't hurt either.

In the Baltimore Orioles' clubhouse Monday afternoon, I showed Manny Machado the list of major leaguers with 60 or more doubles in a single season.
It looked like this:
Earl Webb, 1931 -- 67
George Burns, 1926 -- 64
Joe Medwick, 1936 -- 64
Hank Greenberg, 1934 -- 63
Paul Waner, 1932 -- 62
Charlie Gehringer, 1936 -- 60
Then I told Machado how many doubles he's on pace...

Tweet The Baltimore Orioles began a three-game series with the Detroit Tigers Monday, meaning two of the American League’s most feared hitters this year would be on display at Comerica Park. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera entered play leading the AL in batting average (.352), tied for second in home runs (18), and first [...]
If you thought about it, what is the most cliched saying in all of sports? I’d argue that a team or a person “having someone’s number” is probably in the top five.
That is all you could hear or read if someone read the papers or listened to sports talk radio in the Boston area. “The Orioles have their number.” The sad part about the cliche? It may be true.
The Red Sox...
