Baltimore Orioles win 16th straight extra-inning game

The Baltimore Orioles won their 16th straight extra-inning game Saturday against the Boston Red Sox after Jim Thome hit a go-ahead double in the 12th and Endy Chavez and Manny Machado added RBI singles to win 9-6. The Orioles have now won six straight games as they began the day one game behind AL East-leading New York Yankees. The Orioles extra-inning streak is the longest in Major...

The Orioles Do It Again...

Well, the Baltimore Orioles seemingly are now a team of destiny. They’ve pulled out amazing win after another, and some of them seem utterly incomprehensible. One night after their amazing 18-inning win over the Mariners, they did at again this morning. Once again, the Orioles played an extra inning game – this time, only 11 innings – and they defeated the Mariners again...

Orioles place Wolf on 60 day DL, add Bill Hall

The Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday placed left-handed pitcher Randy Wolf on the 60-day disabled list with a torn ligament in his left elbow. Manager Buck Showalter said that Wolf, who was 2-0 with a 5.28 ERA in five games with the Orioles since signing as a free agent on Aug. 31, felt discomfort in his elbow during the fifth inning of Saturday's start in Boston. Baltimore purchased...

Johnson sets new Orioles save record

The Baltimore Orioles' outstanding bullpen is a big reason they're vying for the AL East lead. And Jim Johnson is the biggest reason for the success of that bullpen. Johnson set a franchise record with his major league-leading 46th save and the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 4-2 on Friday night to remain one game behind the first-place New York Yankees. The record means...

Jones' two-run blast keeps Orioles on Yankees' heels

Adam Jones was done. After playing 29 innings of baseball in 24-plus hours, the former Mariners prospect had enough. He launched a 385-foot homer in the 11th inning Wednesday that gave the Baltimore Orioles a 3-1 win and a series sweep at Seattle. The victory marked the 15th consecutive extra-inning win for Baltimore, and it kept the Orioles within a half-game of first place...

Orioles, Mariners go to extra innings again

The Baltimore Orioles and Seattle Mariners are giving fans plenty of free baseball. A night after playing a 5 hour, 44 minute, 18-inning marathon, the Orioles and Mariners went to extra innings again on Wednesday night. The teams were tied at 1-1 after nine innings. The Orioles and Mariners both used eight pitchers in Tuesday night's game, won 4-2 by the Orioles. On Wednesday...

Thome's 12th-inning double carries Orioles past Red Sox

BOSTON -- It's hard to discourage Jim Thome. Out of the lineup for nearly two months with a herniated neck disk, the Baltimore Orioles designated hitter started his comeback with three consecutive groundouts, followed by back-to-back strikeouts Saturday. Thome was 0-for-5 as Baltimore teetered on the verge of blowing a 6-3 lead to the slumping Boston Red Sox, yet he was eager...

Jon Lester Can't Execute Against Matt Wieters, Loses to Baltimore for First Time (Video)

Jon Lester did something against the Orioles on Friday night that he had never done before. He lost. And it was primarily because of Matt Wieters. Lester came into the game the winner of 14 consecutive decisions against Baltimore, but Wieters made sure he wouldn't make it 15. Wieters hit a single to right field off of Lester in the fourth inning that scored two runs and then...

Bringing up Bundy

The Orioles pulled the trigger on a potentially impactful post-season move by calling up the 19-year-old phenom Dylan Bundy. Electric stuff who projects to be a #1 rotation guy will provide a new weapon for Buck Showalter down the stretch and potentially in the playoffs (although not on the roster by the playoff deadline to be added, there are legal exemptions that can get him on...

'Blackjack' Run of Success Ends for Jon Lester After First Career Loss to Orioles in 21 Starts (Video)

All good things, they say, must come to an end. For Jon Lester, his good fortune against the Baltimore Orioles came to an abrupt halt on Friday night. The Red Sox left-hander lost to the Orioles for the first time in 21 career starts, dropping his record to 14-1 against the Birds. Yes, the numbers are still good, but if this isn't a sign that the Orioles aren't who they used...

Orioles Promote Bundy To Stick His Hand Down His Pants

After the Orioles played 18 innings on Tuesday, delirium set it in and they said, “We’ve had two bean and cheese burritos since 6 o’clock and we have to pull a double shift ice trucking.  Somebody gives us a Christian side hug right now or we’re calling up Dylan Bundy.  Okay, fine.”  Only they did it with no punctuation and in a spot-on Christopher Walken impersonation...

O’s play 4.2 games in Seattle, gain 3-game sweep

The Orioles played two very 2012-Oriole-esque games to earn a sweep of the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. After taking game one in very non-Oriole fashion, 10-4, the next two games were much more their style. In game two, the Birds trailed 2-0 for pretty much the entire game before scoring twice in the top of the ninth inning to tie it up. Neither team would score again until...
