Baltimore Orioles infielder Chris Davis turned heads today with a diving catch in right field off the bat of Chipper Jones. Davis, making his first Major League start in the outfield robbed Jones of extra bases.
The catch came at a critical junction of the game as pitcher Brian Matusz was clinging to a one run lead in the bottom of the sixth inning. Although Matusz proceeded to give up three earned runs after the diving catch, Davis’ play will certainly give manager Buck Showalter more confidence in starting Davis again in the outfield.

Jason Hammel pitched a one-hitter for his first career shutout, allowing only Jason Heyward's two-out single in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Saturday night.
There have already been five no-hitters in the majors this season, including three this month, and Hammel made a strong bid to add to the list.
Hammel struck out eight and...

Final: Orioles 12, Pirates 6
WP: Tommy Hunter (3-3, 5.58 ERA)
LP: Erik Bedard (4-7, 4.36 ERA)
The Orioles scored 10 runs in this one before the Pirates even got a single player on base. That is not a recipe for success.
The Pirates’ offense eventually woke up and scored six runs on ten hits, but it was way too late as this one was put out of reach early on.
Erik Bedard gave up...
It has been an extraordinarily good week for the Baltimore Orioles as they have shined in interleague play, taking two out of three games from the Philadelphia Phillies and taking the first two in their series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Orioles had struggled until the middle last week during a brutal stretch, but found a way to turn it on against Boston. As of now, they...
Following the surprising and very upsetting news of Charlie Morton‘s Tommy John surgery, the Bucs could have used a nice lift from Erik Bedard and company tonight in Baltimore. They didn’t get it, and were blown out to complete a really awful series.
Bedard was bad from the start in his former home ballpark. The O’s struck for four runs in the first inning…the dagger being...

I was listening to the Yankee yesterday, well for no real reason, as Jesus Flores hit a broken bat double off the wall. This was the third moment of a power hit this season due to a broken bat. Earlier in June Giancarlo Stanton hit a broken bat homerun and this past week Chris Davis of the Orioles hit one too.
So this got me thinking, what’s with all the broken bat homers?
