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 got the feeling early that this one would not be easy. First, Clay Buchholz was a mess. He didn't see the end of the 4th inning, allowing 5 runs on 7 hits, 3 of which left Fenway Park. He struck out 4 and walked 4.The Red Sox got on the board in the bottom of the 4th inning when Ryan Sweeney singled home Mike Aviles. An inning later, the Red Sox tied the game on Will Middlebrooks' (pictured) 1st career grand slam.NOTES - Mike Aviles (3), Ryan Sweeney (4), Will Middlebrooks (2) and David Ortiz (2) each had multi-hit games.Aaron Cook needed 11 stitches to close the gash in his knee from yesterda...

Mark Reynolds hilariously leaves Buck Showalter hanging after HR (GIF)

Mark Reynolds left manager Buck Showalter hanging in one of the funnier moments we’ve seen this season. The Orioles third baseman had crushed a solo home run in the third inning of Friday night’s win over the Red Sox when he made his way to the dugout. The homer was the first of the season for the slumping Reynolds, so his teammates gave him the silent treatment in the dugout...

Video: Web Gems- J.J. Hardy

The Baltimore Orioles are off to one heck of start to the 2012 Major League Baseball season. They’re winning primarily because their pitchers are throwing the ball better than any of the Natty Boh drinking boys of Baltimore could have believed. They currently sit at 18-9 and 1 back from the Rays in the AL East. In addition to their strong pitching, they’re also getting some help...

Chris Davis earns win for Orioles

In the first major league game since 1925 in which both teams put a position player on the mound, Baltimore designated hitter Chris Davis overcame an awful day at the plate by pitching two scoreless innings and getting the win as the Orioles outlasted Boston 9-6 Sunday in 17 innings. Davis went 0 for 8, striking out five times and grounding into a double play. But in a season full...

Video: Will Middlebrooks Hits Grand Slam For First Career HR

When Kevin Youkilis went on the 15-day DL with a bad back, the Boston Red Sox brought up their top prospect in Will Middlebrooks to play third base while he was out. After gathering three hits, two of them doubles, in his first two games, Middlebrooks sat out Saturday's game with a tight hamstring. But on Sunday, he made his return to the lineup and had the biggest moment...

Dugout Digest - Orioles for real?

The Baltimore Orioles are currently 1/3 of the way through a killer 15 game stretch that sees them playing nothing but contenders. I remarked at the beginning of the month, to no one in particular, that the Orioles would be lucky if they went 5-10 during this run...this would put them precipitously close to the .500 mark, and a downslide would inevitably take place. Well, after...

Cinco de Mayo Red Sox Delight

4-8 at Fenway Park is pretty pathetic if you ask me. And no, I haven't been to Historic Fenway Park yet this year so you can't blame me for the Boston Red Sox record at home so far in 2012. The Red Sox were facing a rookie pitcher again who they had never seen before and for once they did a pretty good job. They were able to get four runs off of Baltimore Orioles starter...

Bernie Carbo Recalls Hitting Second Most Famous Home Run of Game 6 in 1975 World Series (Video)

1975. Red Sox-Reds. Game 6. A Boston hitter steps to the plate and drills a home run to save Boston. But wait -- it wasn't Carlton Fisk. Bernie Carbo was the player who hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to keep the Red Sox in the game until Fisk could appear for his heroics later. Carbo remembers that fateful day and where that home run has taken him since for NESN Daily.

Red Sox, Yankees Featured on Top 10 Best-Selling MLB New Era Hats List (Photos)

It's always fun to see which player's jersey is the most sold each season. And although hat sales have a tendency to fluctuate much less, it's still cool to see which New Era caps become trendy. Among the top 10 best-selling New Era baseball hats in 2011 are some usual suspects, including the Red Sox and Yankees. But there's also a couple of teams you might not have...

Have a weekend, Chris Davis!

  Hey, Chris Davis – have a weekend kid! First, you take out the Red Sox new secret weapon, Aaron Cook. Then you go 0-8 on Sunday – in what could only be described as karma biting you in the ass – only to totally redeem yourself by shutting down the best offense 170 million can buy for two innings. Sure you dropped from 92 to 84 by the time Adrian Gonzalez came to the plate...

Sox Lose In Extras to the Os

The Sox have now lost 3 in a row and making it so that the drive for 500 ball is once again upon them.  This will be a quick recap since I was at the extra long game last night and heading out the door to hopefully see the Red Sox right the ship today. Jon Lester wasn't great...wasn't bad.  He pitched 6 innings and allowed 3 runs.  When he left the mound, the Sox has...

Game 29: Orioles 3, Rangers 14

Fresh* of taking 5 of 6 in New York and Boston, the O's come home to face off against probably the best team in baseball.* Actually, probably not very fresh at all, given the marathon yesterday.The Good: Stu Pomeranz was called up before the game to add some depth to the weary bullpen (32 K's to 2 walks in 19 minor league innings this year). I was impressed with what...

After a 17 Inning Loss to Baltimore, the Red Sox head to Kansas City

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 [...]

Rangers-Orioles Preview

The two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers dominated the last-place Baltimore Orioles last season, outscoring them by 29 runs over six games. The teams don't appear to be as mismatched in 2012. Baltimore has won five straight over traditional powers to seize the AL's best record, though it might be a bit fatigued as it looks to extend that streak Monday night in the...
