PLAYERS: Chris Davis
TEAMS: Baltimore Orioles
Despite their second consecutive winning season, the Baltimore Orioles failed to make the postseason. But the O’s still had a lot to be proud of in 2013. (Photo credit: Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images North America) The Baltimore Orioles regular season came to an ironic end on Sunday. The Orioles defeated the American League East champion Boston Red Sox, 7-6, in comeback fashion. One-run wins had eluded the O’s all season long — one of the main reasons they failed to make the postseason. The Orioles finished 2013 with a record of 20-31 in one-run contests. A significant drop off to their 2012 record of 29-9 — a major league best. Though the final standings will show the Orioles once again finishing behind the Red Sox and the New York Yankees, the O’s finished with a record of 85-77, fourth in the East because of their head-to-head record against the Yanks. They now have consecutive winning seasons for the first time since 1996-97. It wasn’t just the Yankees the Orioles struggled to win ...

Davis sprains wrist in Orioles' 7-6 win over Red Sox

Buck Showalter never wants the baseball season to end. He talks endlessly about how difficult the season is how his body rebels at its end. You might think he’d like to avoid the torture. After Sunday’s 7-6 Orioles win over the Boston Red Sox before a sellout crowd of 44230 at Oriole Park Showalter became emotional as almost always does after the final game. He had lots to...

Orioles have differing views of up-and-down season

There was a time when the Baltimore Orioles would have delighted to finish 85-77 and in contention for a playoff berth until the final week of the season. Not anymore.
