The Baltimore Orioles this season have continued to amaze me. We all know their next few weeks are going to be tough, but so far they are continuing to roll.

Last night, they defeated the New York Yankees, 6-0, in the Bronx. Jake Arrieta perhaps threw his best game as an Oriole, going eight shutout innings, striking out nine and stifling a tough New York lineup.

Matt Wieters hit his seventh homer and Nick Markakis his third to power Baltimore to their 16th victory on the season. Nick Johnson went 2-for-5 and drove in a run; meanwhile, Robert Andino continued his remarkable start, going 3-for-3 and upping his average to .342.

Baltimore ended Ivan Nova’s 15-game consecutive win streak as he only lasted 6 ½ innings and gave up five runs. The Orioles countered the Yankees when they were struggling on the mound, and they did what all good teams do – take advantage of their opponent.

The Orioles have the Red Sox coming up as they head to Fenway Park for a weekend series. I think they could also take two out of three from Boston; however, Fenway Park has been a house of horrors for the Orioles the past several seasons. in addition, David Ortiz has been one of the hottest hitters in the baseball this young season.

Again, I wonder if what we are seeing out the Orioles is for real? Who actually knows.

However, they are doing it with timely hitting, exceptionally strong starting pitching and making the most of their opportunities.

I have no clue if this team is for real, but I am truly happy to see the improvement so far.

Also, Nolan Reimold is ailing. It is now been disclosed that he has issues with his neck – and not his back. I guess that is better news than originally announced.

Finally, it looks like Tsuyoshi Wada will have Tommy John surgery. It is too awful to see that be reality as he was a highly touted signee from Asia; however, you knew problems were around the corner when he complained of elbow soreness and honestly did not pitch much. It is safe to assume that Wada will miss the next 12 months, if not even longer.
