The Baltimore Orioles will play host to the American League East champion Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards, in a final three-game series to close out the 2013 regular season schedule.
Though the O’s were eliminated from postseason contention on Tuesday, the Orioles and Red Sox have had some pretty dramatic moments in recent memory.
A brawl broke out in a game at Fenway Park in July 2011, that season in September the Orioles would eliminate Boston from playoff contention, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz smashed a phone in the visiting dugout in July, and just last week the Orioles rallied in the final inning to snap Red Sox closer Koji Uehara ‘s streak of 37-straight batters retired to beat the Sox, 3-2.
After securing their second consecutive winning season Wednesday night, the Orioles (83-76) are only ...

Here we are, folks: the End of Season Post-Mortem series. If you're new here (which about 50% of our reader base is in comparison to last year), here's a brief explanation: after a team is eliminated from playoff contention, we're going to put their season under a microscope and look at just what the hell went wrong, what went right, and so on and so forth. The goal is...
Miguel Gonzalez pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Matt Wieters homered and drove in two runs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Thursday night.
Nick Markakis had two hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who won the season series 10-9. Baltimore is 13-5 at Camden Yards against the Blue Jays since the start of the 2012 season.

Scott Feldman hopes Friday night's rough start won't be his last in a Baltimore Orioles uniform.
Feldman allowed eight runs and failed to finish the third inning in the worst of his 15 starts with the Orioles, a 12-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
''I hope that they want me back,'' Feldman said. ''I really like the guys in here and the coaching staff...
Miguel Gonzalez heads home to California on Sunday with a big smile on his face. During the season that’s about to end Gonzalez won 11 games and perhaps saved his best for last.
On Thursday night Gonzalez threw seven superb innings allowing just two hits and could have gone further if not for two errors behind him.

Baltimore Orioles star third baseman Manny Machado will seek a second opinion on his left knee injury and -- at this point -- does not plan to have surgery during the offseason reports MLB.com's Orioles beat writer Brittany Ghiroli. He expects to rest and rehab in preparation to return to action by Spring Training 2014 as we described on Tuesday.
Ghiroli reminds us that the...
A winning season was never an objective for the Baltimore Orioles. Reaching the playoffs was all that mattered.
So, after the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-5 on Wednesday night to clinch a winning record for the second straight year, the players saw absolutely no reason to celebrate the moment.
''We didn't make it to the playoffs. That was our goal,''...
One day after they were eliminated from the playoff picture the Orioles fielded a starting lineup Wednesday night more fit for late-February than late-September.
But an Orioles batting order void of much of its start power managed to record its most productive offensive night in three weeks snapping their season-high six-game losing streak with a 9-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays...
Move over Ted Williams. Stand aside Cal Ripken Jr.
Make way for David Ortiz.
With a three-run homer in the eighth inning of the Red Sox’ 12-3 pounding of the Baltimore Orioles last night Ortiz joined Williams as the only players in franchise history to post seven 30-homer 100-RBI seasons. And for good measure the homer was the 431st of Ortiz’ career tying Orioles great Ripken...

The Red Sox open their final series of the season tonight against the Baltimore Orioles with a chance to clinch the best record in the AL and home field advantage. Ironically, they were the team that finished off the Red Sox epic collapse of 2011. No chance of them ruining our playoff hopes this years since...
