Sam Galanis Contributing Writer Photo by Jonathan Ernst/Getty Images The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry has stood for over one hundred years at this point, and the Red Sox-Rays rivalry has been clearing benches for a little over ten years. But the Red Sox-Orioles rivalry is fairly new to the AL East. The Baltimore Orioles were the basement dwellers of the AL East for what feels like forever. Now that they’ve showed up in a big way, it feels as though they’re out to get the Sox in particular. These past two nights were a testament to that. Last night, both teams were on their A-game through 13 innings, but ultimately the Orioles came out on top thanks to Chris Davis, who has proved to be a pest to the Sox lately. Tonight, the O’s got up early, and the first-place Sox could only manage three hits. The Orioles won 22 of the last 31 games against the Sox, and Sox fans can’t even talk about what they did in 2011. So what is it about the O’s? For starters, it’s an even matchup. You have th...

Chris Davis Threatening Miguel Cabrera for Triple Crown As Dangerous Orioles Welcome Red Sox to Baltimore

When the most recent AL MVP betting odds were released, Tigers star Miguel Cabrera was the even-money favorite. That makes sense as Cabrera potentially could be the first player ever to win back-to-back Triple Crowns. The second-favorite was Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis at 3-1, and he’s making his own Triple Crown case. The lefty slugger trails only Cabrera in batting average...

Alex Wilson, Red Sox Victimized by Chris Davis’ Walk-Off Bloop Single in 13th Inning (Video)

The Red Sox and Orioles played a 17-inning marathon last season at Fenway Park, with the O’s taking the win on an Adam Jones homer. The two teams went 13 frames Thursday night, but it was a much softer hit then allowed Baltimore to walk away victorious. Chris Davis, who is known for his home-run power, knocked a bloop single into left field off Alex Wilson, bringing the winning...

Red Sox Would Do Well Not to Try One-Upping Yankees With Late Dramatics Against Orioles (Video)

The Yankees and Athletics battled into the 18th inning on Thursday night, but that’s probably not something the Red Sox should have much interest in doing themselves. After all, the last time the Sox had to play the Orioles in that long of a game, it didn’t end too well for them. Besides, Chris Davis is enough to handle at the plate right now without needing to worry about him...

Orioles 2, Red Sox 0

There's still more than half a season left to play, so there's no reason for the Baltimore Orioles to become overly excited about their current situation. Then again, what harm is there in enjoying the moment? Chris Tillman took a two-hitter into the seventh inning, Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 22nd home run and the Orioles blanked the Boston Red Sox 2-0 Friday...

Orioles offense too much for Lester

Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 23rd home run, Nick Markakis had four hits and scored three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox 6-3 Sunday. Manny Machado extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games and drove in a run for the Orioles, who took three of four from first-place Boston to move within 1 1/2 games of the AL East lead...

Orioles continue to prove that 2012 was no fluke

With a 5-4 win at Camden Yards on Saturday, the Boston Red Sox managed to end their five-game losing streak in Baltimore and extend their slim lead over the Orioles for first place in the American League East to 2.5 games. Despite the loss however, Baltimore has won 13 of their last 18 games against the Red Sox and have proven that they 

Four Real? Four at bats that changed the game. Red Sox vs Orioles. 6-16-13

Game 71: Sox can't play catchup,lose 6-3 Jon Lester continues to slip, his ERA continues to rise, and his team continues to lose when he pitches. You really can't say he pitched horribly, striking out 8 and walking none, but he only mustered five innings and gave up nine hits in over 100 pitches. Boston bats looked dead until the seventh inning, but by then, they were down...

Recap: O's Blank Boston

The Sox bats (well, nearly all of them) took the night off tonight as Boston was dealt a 2-0 loss to Chris Tillman and the Orioles. If you like offense, this game wasn't for you.  Both teams combined for just 8 hits (one of which was Chris Davis' 22nd home run on the year).  If you like Boston's offense, this game really wasn't for you.  Only 3 of those 8 hits...
