The Baltimore Orioles earned their 71st victory of the season as they defeated the Chicago White Sox, 6-0. In another amazing performance by Chris Tillman (7-2), he only allowed one hit over seven innings on the mounds. It is astounding how much Tillman has improved over the past season, considering how bad he was at times in the past. Fans wanted him traded in the past; however, there's a reason why the Orioles didn't trade him. If the Orioles do make the playoffs, one reason for them making it will be contributions of Tillman this summer. In a season where the Orioles have done the improbable, would have imagined Tillman having such a vital role in the rotation right now? Could you imagine him starting a playoff game? It looks like now, thanks to a few changes - mainly in his delivery - that Tillman has probably finally figured out how to pitch in the majors. Tillman flat out owned the White Sox, striking out five; he, did also did walk four guys – a little of a downer ...

Saunders trade will push Baltimore Orioles into play-offs

For the first time in this whole season I, as a Baltimore Orioles fan, have hope. Despite this being one of the most successful seasons in a long time for Baltimore there has always been this aura of doubt for me. I am always a pessimist when it comes to the ball club, so even with everything going great it was hard to see a bright future. Things hit their breaking point when the...

Despite missed opportunities, McLouth’s two-run bomb lifts O’s over White Sox

“Every game there’s a different star, that’s the magic of Orioles baseball!” Nick Markakis twice came up with the bases loaded, and twice failed to deliver not a single run. Adam Jones was 0-for-4 on the night. The team left eight runners on base. No matter. The O’s have Lew Ford and Nate McLouth! That’s right, in another improbable Orioles victory during this summer...

Revolving door has O's still in hunt

Center fielder Adam Jones was professing ignorance about the makeup of the Baltimore Orioles' ever-changing pitching staff, saying, "I don't even know what our five-man rotation is." First baseman Chris Davis, standing a few lockers away, smiled and agreed. "We have, like, a nine-man rotation," Davis said. A nine-man rotation, a 35-man roster, the fourth...

Report: Orioles Will Not Call Up Minor League Phenom Dylan Bundy for September

Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy lit up the radar gun in the minors this season, but isn't expected to have a chance at testing himself in the big leagues this year. Bundy, who earned himself a reputation while dominating the minor leagues, will be sent to the team's instructional league team in September, according to Baltimore manager Buck Showalter. That should put...

Saunders Loses in Oriole Debut; Dylan Bundy will not be called up this season...

It was ugly last night for the Orioles, as they lost 8-1, last night at Camden Yards. They could not take advantage of a Yankees’ loss in New York; however, they still lead the Wild Card hunt along with Oakland. Virginia native Joe Saunders who was making his first start as an Oriole just was not effective on Wednesday. Saunders pretty much doomed the Orioles as he gave up four...

McLouth's 2-Run Shot Late Propels Orioles; Where are the fans?

The Orioles on Monday night earned their 70th win of the season – quite an amazing accomplishment based on what many predicted in the winter. They beat a tough, gritty Chicago team that is leading American League Central and have won their third game in a row. Two role players – Nate McLouth and Lew Ford came up huge on the night. Considering both guys were in baseball wilderness...

Zach Britton dominates White Sox, is then demoted

Zach Britton of the Orioles had one of the best starts of his young career on Thursday against the White Sox. In eight innings, Britton allowed one run on seven hits, and struck out ten batters without walking one. For Britton, who has only made eight starts in the majors this season while battling injuries and ineffectiveness, the start was a step in the right direction. Of...

Showalter: Bundy likely won't reach majors this year

Prized prospect Dylan Bundy likely will not be recalled by the Baltimore Orioles when rosters expand Saturday. The 2011 first-round draft pick, a right-handed starting pitcher, breezed through Class A competition this spring and has fared well at Class AA Bowie this summer. On Wednesday, manager Buck Showalter essentially eliminated talk of the 19-year-old phenom making his debut...

Orioles 4, White Sox 3

Nate McLouth hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning, Lew Ford also connected and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the White Sox 4-3 on Monday night, ending Chicago's six-game winning streak. It was the franchise-record 13th consecutive one-run win for the Orioles, who trailed 2-1 in the sixth and 3-2 in the eighth. After the White Sox went up 3-2 in the eighth against...

Orioles Sign Randy Wolf

The Baltimore Orioles apparently have signed free-agent lefty and recent Brewer Randy Wolf.  It didn't take long for Wolf to find a new team.  Wolf will be pitching in the AL for the first time, although as of now it's unclear if he's joined Baltimore to fortify a young rotation or to help from the bullpen.  The Orioles were among the suspected suitors for Wolf in...

Orioles close to signing Randy Wolf

The Baltimore Orioles are close to signing free agent left-hander Randy Wolf, who was released by the Milwaukee Brewers last week. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wolf was expected to arrive in Baltimore on Wednesday and there's a chance he could be activated before Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Wolf was cut loose by the Brewers after going 3-10 with...

Orioles-Yankees Preview

The Baltimore Orioles are arriving in the Bronx with a chance to leave town with a share of first place. The Orioles will look to further trim the New York Yankees' three-game AL East lead Friday night in the opener of a three-game set. Baltimore (72-58) is brimming with confidence after winning 20 of its last 29 games and capping a 5-1 homestand with Thursday's 5-3 win...
