WHAT ARE THE ODDS?
By making a pitching appearance this season and hitting for power, Baltimore's Chris Davis accomplished a feat that only two other players have pulled off since 1900.

On Friday night in Baltimore, Chris Davis bashed three home runs to help the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-4.
That feat is extremely impressive in itself, as Davis set new career highs in home runs (23) and RBI (64), with still well over a month to play in the 2012 season. However, Davis joined incredibly rarified air with the 3-dinger...
Baltimore Orioles utility man Chris Davis hit three home runs against the Blue Jays on Friday night, just one home run of becoming the 17th player in Major League History to hit four homers in one game.
Davis, a five-year veteran with 67 career home runs, nearly joined Texas Rangers center fielder Josh Hamilton in the four home run club. Hamilton accomplished the feat earlier this...
The Baltimore Orioles have recalled left-hander Brian Matusz from Triple-A Norfolk and assigned him to the bullpen, a radical change for the long-time starter.
Matusz has pitched in 68 major league games, all of them starts. The Orioles had him serve as a reliever in four games recently with Norfolk, and he did well enough to warrant a look at the big league level.
It looks like Tommy Hunter has been demoted back to minors, and considering how things have gone with him -- especially after Thursday's start, who could blame the team? The Orioles are in it to win, and they have to look at all the weak links. I'd imagine that he would be promoted back once rosters expand in September.
As for Matusz, according to reports, he'll be pitching...
Baltimore’s Nick Markakis continues to get it done
For anyone who watches Orioles games regularly you notice a few different things. Jim Palmer is head over heals in love with Jim Palmer, J.J “ballso” Hardy catches everything hit within 100 feet of him, and Nick Markakis has no emotions what so ever. In fact it almost looks as if Markakis has the most miserable job on...
For your consideration, from the ESPN 2012 MLB Preview -
Best-case scenario: Left-handers Brian Matusz and Zach Britton make major strides before the team is crushed under the weight of a powerful division. For the sixth straight year, Baltimore fails to win 70 games; for the 15th straight year, the team has a losing record. Yes, this is the best-case scenario.
The Orioles kick off a seven game home stand tonight that will have the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago White Sox in town for three- and four-game series respectively. The Orioles have fared well against the Blue Jays this season going 5-4 including a three game sweep at home against the rival AL East club.
While the Orioles are still poised to make a solid run at one of the two...
J.J. Hardy homered and scored three runs, rookie Steve Johnson allowed four hits over six innings and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 Saturday night to equal their win total of last season.
Hardy, Adam Jones and Matt Wieters each had two RBIs for the Orioles, who have won 14 of 20 since Aug. 3. Baltimore (69-57) is in the thick of the AL wild-card chase and...
Chris Davis hit three home runs in four at-bats and had four RBIs to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the skidding Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 Friday night.
Davis hit solo shots off Carlos Villanueva (6-4) in the second and fourth innings, then greeted Steve Delabar in the sixth with an opposite-field, two-run drive to left field to put Baltimore up 5-1.
Facing Brad Lincoln in the eighth...
Chris Davis homered in each of his first three at-bats for the Baltimore Orioles against the Toronto Blue Jays, but couldn't continue the power display in his fourth trip to the plate.
Davis hit solo shots off starter Carlos Villanueva in the second and fourth innings Friday night and added a two-run drive against Steve Delabar in the sixth to put Baltimore up 5-1.
You’ve probably heard by that the Orioles lost 12-3 to the Texas Rangers last night, as Tommy Hunter and Kevin Gregg set off the fireworks for them – in a historically bad way.
Tommy Hunter, in a typical Hunter start, gave up three homers; however, was terrible on Wednesday night.
Adrian Beltre, who can be one hell of a hitter, slammed three home runs – including doing two...
Stepping to the plate with a chance to become the 17th player in baseball history to hit four home runs in a game, Chris Davis had one thing in mind.
''I was thinking about trying to work a walk,'' Davis said with a wry grin.
Davis didn't get that fourth homer, but three was quite enough to power the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-4 victory over the skidding Toronto...
