The injury updates were aplenty for the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, and none of them were all that encouraging. Jim Thome and Jason Hammel aren't expected back until September -- meaning the club will need more starts like Chris Tillman's outing Monday, and more homers from guys like Nick Markakis. Thome said Monday that he may be sidelined for longer, as he'll go the next 30 days without baseball activity. He is attempting to overcome a herniated neck disk. Hammel may be back on a mound within two weeks. For now, he's just working on throwing on flat ground as he comes back from arthroscopic knee surgery performed July 16. In other medical news, Nick Johnson remains on the 60-day disabled list with a wrist injury that hasn't shown much improvement. There is a chance that the veteran may not return this season. As for right-hander Stu Pomeranz, he was scheduled to work out Monday in Sarasota, Fla., but he didn't throw because of discomfort in his l...

Everyone keeps waiting for it, but it still hasn't happened. Everyone keeps pointing to their horrible run differential, but it hasn't made a difference. Nope, sorry folks, the Baltimore Orioles are still right in the thick of the playoff race and it doesn't look like they are going to go away anytime soon.
It defies almost every shred of baseball logic the surprising...
The Orioles continue to show a level of fight that we’re not used to seeing from our Baltimore baseball club (in recent years, anyway; this year’s squad has done this kind of thing time and time again).
Trailing 5-0 going into the bottom of the second inning, and 7-2 going into the bottom of the sixth, the Birds rallied thanks in part to home runs from Matt Wieters (a pair of...
At the start of the season – or better yet, this offseason – I didn’t give the Orioles chance in hell to finish with over 70 wins.
Or finish .500.
Or over .500.
Or even more preposterous … a playoff team?
Based on their run differential, and a litany of other statistics, the Baltimore Orioles have no business being an over .500 team.
They should not should be...
The Baltimore Orioles came up in the Tampa Bay area, taking two consecutive contests in their three-game set.
Amazingly, for a team that has had pitching issues and troubling scoring runs for much of the summer, the Orioles are hanging in there within the playoff hunt. They are pulling out the close contests, winning the one-run games, and getting contributions from seemingly...
(Editor’s note: Matt might be getting a little ahead of himself here. Still, I for one am just thrilled to be having these types of discussions in August, so I have no reservations about posting this.)
After Monday night’s games, the Orioles are just 0.5 games out of the second wild card spot, and one full game out of the first. Following a strong road trip and opening what...
Adam Jones singled home the winning run in the 14th inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 8-7 Tuesday night after rallying from a five-run deficit.
It was the fourth straight victory for the Orioles, who moved eight games over .500 (59-51) for the first time since June 29.
Matt Wieters homered twice, J.J. Hardy contributed a pivotal three-run drive and Nick...
Taylor Teagarden broke out of a long slide with an RBI double in the 10th inning that led the Baltimore Orioles over the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Sunday.
Joel Peralta (1-4) walked Mark Reynolds with one out in the 10th and threw a called third strike past Omar Quintanilla. Teagarden, in a 1-for-25 slide, lined a two-out drive to left-center.
Luis Ayala (3-3) got three outs in the...
Chris Tillman took a three-hit shutout into the eighth inning to extend a run of successful starts by Baltimore pitchers, and the Orioles beat Jason Vargas and the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Monday night.
Nick Markakis homered and Mark Reynolds had three hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who have won six of eight to improve to 58-51. Baltimore didn't record its 58th win last year...
M’s fall to O’s in 14
The Headline: after 14 innings, an Adam Jones walk off single seals the deal for a Mariners loss.
