Found September 02, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman left Sunday's game against the Yankees after three innings because of stiffness in his right elbow. Tillman's velocity was down and he issued a walk in each of the first two innings, with Chris Dickerson belting a two-run homer in the second. The severity of the injury was not immediately known, but losing Tillman for any period would be a blow to the Orioles' push for a postseason berth. Before Sunday, Tillman was 6-1 with a 3.67 ERA in his last eight starts and was 7-2 with a 3.26 ERA for the season. Randy Wolf made his Orioles debut when he replaced Tillman.

Reynolds powers O’s to series win in New York; Birds two back of Yanks

For most of the 2012 season, Mark Reynolds was a disappointment. His production – 12 HR 42 RBI entering Friday’s game – was way down from what he did in 2011, when he hit 37 home runs and drove in 86 runs, both team highs. However, he has recently been a very pleasant surprise as a first baseman, solidifying the position defensively, while not quite putting up the kind of numbers...

After Dropping Series To Orioles, Joe Girardi Deserves A Swift Kick In The Nuts

The New York Yankees owe a debt of gratitude to J.J. Hardy of the Baltimore Orioles. Had it not been for his error in Saturday's game at the Stadium, the Yankees might have been swept by the Birds, and would be sharing the AL division lead going into today's action. As it is now, the lead is 2 games, and it is entirely possible that the Yankees could be in second (or even...

Vote: Have the A's or Orioles Been a Bigger Surprise This Year?

As far as surprise teams go, this MLB season has had plenty -- and not all of them have been good. The Red Sox are among those wondering what has happened since the first lineup card landed just a few months ago. But several teams have performed far above expectations, leaving their fans with plenty to root for as the final chunk of the season approaches and teams gear up for the...

Orioles-Blue Jays Preview

The Baltimore Orioles could use a better effort from Joe Saunders as they try to continue an improbable surge toward the top of the AL East. The recently-acquired left-hander will try to bounce back from a difficult Baltimore debut Monday when the Orioles open a three-game road set against the Toronto Blue Jays. Baltimore (74-59) was third in the East and 7 1/2 games behind the...

How lucky are the Orioles?

Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has had a job in two of the biggest media markets, New York and Boston, and with ESPN in the interim. He knows how to make a statement to get people’s attention. Recently on ESPN radio, he stated that the Baltimore Orioles were “lucky” to be where they are On it’s face, Valentine seems to make a good point. Looking at the Pythagorean...

The biggest series in 15 years

The Orioles won game one, but dropped game two of the biggest series in the recent history in New York City. The Orioles currently sit three games behind the Yankees as they try to do what many consider the impossible, take the American League East. I honestly never thought I would be writing those words but there they are and the Orioles have a legitimate shot at the number one...

Yanks go back ahead by 3 games in AL East with 4-3 wn over Orioles

By Dave Buscema, The Sports Xchange NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees had watched the Baltimore Orioles jump on them early again. The Orioles again showed they were not intimidated by the puzzled looks of those who question how they are still in the pennant race, or the Yankee Stadium atmosphere -- which often deflates teams this time of year. So, the Yankees were beset with an...
