If you thought about it, what is the most cliched saying in all of sports? I’d argue that a team or a person “having someone’s number” is probably in the top five.
That is all you could hear or read if someone read the papers or listened to sports talk radio in the Boston area. “The Orioles have their number.” The sad part about the cliche? It may be true.
The Red Sox have a winning record against the teams they have faced this year except for four: The Kansas City Royals (won one out of three games in Fenway), the Chicago White Sox (won one out of three games in Chi-Town), the Texas Rangers (lost four out of six games), and the Baltimore Orioles. The other three teams are irrelevant to a point, but the Orioles dominance sticks out because of the divisional ramifications.
The Orioles inched two games closer to Boston in the AL East, but the Red Sox still escaped with the American League’s best record.
Here are some notes from the weekend series:
The cliche was one thing, the Jon Les...

The Baltimore Orioles are planning to start left-hander Zach Britton in place of ailing right-hander Jason Hammel on Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers.
Baltimore manager Buck Showalter says he doesn't expect Hammel's illness to be serious enough to put him on the disabled list. Hammel is 7-4 with a 5.24 ERA this season.
The Orioles sent Britton to Triple-A Norfolk...

I feel like I’ve written this sentence a lot in recent pieces, but the Baltimore Orioles were once again carried to a series win on the back of their staggering lineup and rock-solid bullpen.
The birds took three out of four from the AL-East leading Boston Red Sox, chopping their lead down to 1.5 games...

At this point, Baltimore is pushing Hammel back for at least one day as he recovers from a stomach virus that has swept through his home. If...
A service organization outing for fathers and sons to a Baltimore Orioles game didn't stop Davie Jane Gilmour from joining her dad at the ballpark when she was a little girl.
Decades later, Gilmour is setting a precedent for Little League baseball, too.
Nearly 40 years after girls were allowed to officially play Little League, Gilmour is the first woman to lead the Board of...
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
J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones homered off Justin Verlander, and Manny Machado added a double and two sparkling plays at third base to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Hardy hit his third homer off Verlander (8-5) this month, connecting for a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and Jones added a three-run drive in the fifth.
The Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox today, before a packed house of Orioles’ orange, 6-3. Michael Gonzalez was great and the bullpen came in and slammed the door shut. All in all it was just another day in Baltimore as sights like this have become almost too common. The starting pitching is fine, but flawed, the offense does its job (Manny Machado hits a double, Adam Jones hits...

In the Baltimore Orioles' clubhouse Monday afternoon, I showed Manny Machado the list of major leaguers with 60 or more doubles in a single season.
It looked like this:
Earl Webb, 1931 -- 67
George Burns, 1926 -- 64
Joe Medwick, 1936 -- 64
Hank Greenberg, 1934 -- 63
Paul Waner, 1932 -- 62
Charlie Gehringer, 1936 -- 60
Then I told Machado how many doubles he's on pace...
After a 5-2 homestand, the Baltimore Orioles started off their six-game road trip in Detroit and ran into a roadblock … a pitcher named Max Scherzer.
The tall righty dominated the Orioles last night in the motor city and helped the Tigers earn a 5-1 victory.
Although Chris Davis hit his league leading 24th home run in the second inning, the Baltimore offense was stymied...
