After a 17 inning loss to the surging Baltimore Orioles, a loss in which one of their highest paid players was a staggering 0-8 from the plate, the 11-16 Red Sox are heading to Kansas City for a 3 game set with the Royals. The loss to the Orioles handed the Sox their 5th straight [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
The Orioles had the highlight of the weekend. No, not Chris Davis pitching, but this:
[Not sure where this originated, but I discovered it via Ryan Hudson]
The Orioles should be feeling really good. Prior to the season the usual trio of the Yankees, Red Sox, and Rays were considered the contenders for the American League East, with the Blue Jays perhaps as the upcoming outsider...
It took six hours and seven minutes to complete but the Baltimore Orioles finally defeated the Boston Red Sox 9-6 in 17 innings at Fenway Park this afternoon to earn a series sweep. Eighteen pitchers took the mound throwing a combined 570 pitches. Two of the men who toed the rubber aren’t pitchers [...]
Nick Johnson needs a typical Nick Johnson season to secure his legacy. Not as an injury-prone first baseman — that’s his other legacy — but as an on-base machine. The 33-year-old left-handed hitter came into the year as one of fewer than 60 players in history [minimum 3,000 plate appearances] with a career OBP of .400 or better. Now with the Baltimore Orioles, Johnson was right...
The biggest surprise team of the 2012 MLB season thus far has been the Baltimore Orioles at 19-9. They're getting timely hitting and decent starting pitching, but it's the bullpen that has been the big story. Their relief pitchers are so effective that a position player, Chris Davis, was forced to the mound today and worked 2 scoreless innings and picked up the win...
That one word pretty much sums up that past road trip for the Orioles.
After taking their fourth consecutive L against division rival New York to start the 6 game trip, the frustration of being able to squeak out wins against lesser competition but never really being able to compete against powerhouses such as Boston and New York began to build in the minds of Orioles faithful...
BOSTON - That wasn't first baseman/DH Chris Davis who had ice packs on his right shoulder and elbow after Sunday's game. It was winning pitcher Chris Davis who had the ice on. Davis, who had a miserable day at the plate that almost got him into the record books for strikeouts, outpitched Red Sox outfielder Darnell McDonald to pick up the first win by an American League...

What a weekend at Fenway for the Birds.
Not only did they complete their first 3-game sweep in Beantown since way back in 1994, but the way they did it on Sunday afternoon was something that O’s fans will never forget.
It took 17 innings, both teams using position players to pitch, a huge relay throw from J.J. Hardy to Matt Wieters, Wieters subsequently blocking the plate and...
First baseman Chris Davis struck out five times, grounded into a double play and then tossed two scoreless innings of relief after Baltimore ran out of pitchers, picking up the win as the Orioles beat Boston 9-6 Sunday in 17 innings.
Adam Jones hit a three-run homer in the top of the 17th off Darnell McDonald, an outfielder the Red Sox put on the mound once their bullpen was empty...
Adam Jones slammed a 3-run home run off Darnell McDonald in the top of the 17th inning to give the Orioles a 9-6 win and a 3-game sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday. McDonald was in the game after the Red Sox had gone through 7 relief pitchers. Position player Chris Davis got the win in relief with 2 scoreless innings after Balitmore had also used 7 relief pitchers.You...
The magic for the Orioles did not manifest itself tonight against the Texas Rangers in the start of their four-game set.
After yesterday's win, everyone in the region was happy about the Orioles' recent run and were hoping for it to continue against the formidable Rangers; however, baseball can be a humbling game.
There were no miracle comebacks, dazzling pitching performances...
Getting this one up a little late today due to the extremely busy news day....sorry about that. By the time you're reading this, the first game in the series will have already begun (and possibly concluded), so we'll see how accurate my analysis is pretty quickly, right? Anyway, there is a very weak slate of games going during this week. There are a total of four series between...
