Mike Wright dominates in debut; Orioles avoid sweep

The Baltimore Orioles had scored only two runs in the process of losing the first two games of their weekend series with the Los Angeles Angels — 3-1 and 6-1, respectively. To make matters worse, bronchitis and back spasms forced Bud Norris and Chris Tillman out of action. Enter Mike Wright. Wright was recalled to take a place in the Orioles’ bullpen after Kevin Gausman and Jason...

Alex Rodriguez Passes Willie Mays on All-Time Homer List

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez set a pretty major milestone Thursday night against the Baltimore Orioles. The volatile former MVP smacked a solo home run against Orioles starter Chris Tillman in the bottom of the third. It wasn’t your average homer either.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, May 7

Yesterday the Official Lineup’s GPP upside was done in by mediocre pitching — Gerrit Cole didn’t come up big against the Reds and C.J. Wilson was merely “50/50 good.” Part of that is Huston Street’s fault as Street blew the save against the Mariners. Of course, spending $5,400 on a five-point performance (Carlos Gomez) never helps. On the plus side, Russell Martin and...

Baltimore Orioles: Starting Rotation Needs to Step up for Birds

Eighteen games into the 2015 season, Baltimore Orioles’ starting pitchers have registered four, count ’em, four quality starts. While there is some debate to the merit of the quality start statistic (to me, it is right up there with the hold in terms of useless baseball stats only used to give agents something to do when trying to pump up a player’s value), there is no denying...

Orioles Take Second Game of Series

The Red Sox entered the game having taken the first game of the series and looking for more.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound who had one of the worst outing of his career in his last start vs. Chris Tillman for the O’s.  The Sox would go down early and then the O’s would put the game away in the late innings.  All in all, it wasn’t the Sox’s day.
