Maine Native Ryan Flaherty: Returning Home ‘Makes It A Little More Special’

Sunday was a special day at Fenway Park, as the Boston Red Sox honored their northern New England neighbors by celebrating “Maine Day” in their series finale against the Baltimore Orioles. The occasion was especially fitting for Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty, who grew up in Portland, Maine and was named the Pine Tree State’s Gatorade High School Player of the Year during...

Orioles escape bases-loaded jam in ninth for 5-3 win over Tampa Bay Rays

After an opening five weeks to the season that included rain delays, irregular start times and early-morning flights, the Orioles were looking forward to playing three night games with no risk of weather delays under the roof of Tropicana Field. They didn't account for a 19-minute eighth-inning delay when a set of lights went out along a catwalk connected to the dome's roof...

Rays load bases in bottom of 9th but drop series opener to Orioles

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Ryan Flaherty and Nick Markakis both drove in a run after a power outage delay in the eighth inning and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Tuesday night. The 19-minute delay came after a series of lights went out at Tropicana Field. The outage was soon after Steve Clevenger's one-out double off Joel Peralta (1-2) put runners on second...

Baltimore Orioles: Solving the Ryan Flaherty Problem

Ryan Flaherty has become a liability for the Baltimore Orioles this season. On every Little League baseball team in America, there is the same kid. You know this kid. Everyone knows this kid. He tries hard, he really does. And occasionally, he’ll make a good thing happen, like leaning into a pitch to get on base or not committing a throwing error to first base on a routine grounder...

Some really bad starts to the season

After the first week of the season, we are all smart enough to know not to make a big deal out of extremes in performance both up or down. Batters and pitchers will start the season hot or cold and generally will end up somewhere around where they usually do. Perhaps you can see a trend after only a week. But doing so should be with the utmost caution. Here are some players who...

2014 Season Preview: Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles head into the 2014 season as a bit of an enigma in the American League East. With a top notch offense, with more power than any other team in the Major Leagues, and an absolutely fantastic defense club, one would imagine that the O’s would be near the top of the AL standings when it’s all said and done. However, if there’s one thing that’s going to undo...

Orioles' Alexi Casilla dealing with right hamstring tightness

The Baltimore Orioles came into Spring Training following an 85 win season, good for third place in the American League East. Although they fell short of the playoffs, the Orioles feel ready to make a push this season for a playoff spot. One area of concern is infield depth.  Behind Chris Davis, Ryan Flaherty, J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado are Jonathan Schoop, Alexi Casilla and Steve...

Orioles' recent minor-league deals could have major impact

This is the time in the offseason where savvy clubs are able to make some under-the-radar minor-league signings that can help them down the road. And while the Orioles signings of Delmon Young and Alexi Casilla over the past few days aren’t groundbreaking -- I know a lot of fans just see it as more furstrating examples of bargain-bin shopping -- and by no means are they going...

Blue Jays fail in clutch, fall to Orioles 9-5

The Toronto Blue Jays got 15 hits, four apiece by Munenori Kawasaki and Josh Thole, and never went down in order. And still the Blue Jays lost 9-5 to Baltimore on Wednesday night, mainly because they wasted a week's full of scoring chances. Ryan Flaherty hit a pair of two home runs and Jonathan Schoop and Steve Pearce contributed solo shots for the Orioles, who ended a six...

Orioles end losing skid with 9-5 win over Toronto

One day after they were eliminated from the playoff picture the Orioles fielded a starting lineup Wednesday night more fit for late-February than late-September. But an Orioles batting order void of much of its start power managed to record its most productive offensive night in three weeks snapping their season-high six-game losing streak with a 9-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays...

Ryan Flaherty strikes out while being hit by pitch (Video)

Baltimore Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty was the victim of an unusual strikeout during Monday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays when an umpire ruled he swung at a pitch that hit him in the leg. It happened in the top of the fourth inning as Flaherty appeared to check his swing on an 0-2 pitch from Rays pitcher Chris Archer that hit him in the back ankle. Flaherty immediately...

About Sunday's Loss...

The good news over the weekend is that the Orioles took three out of four games from the White Sox this weekend. The bad news is that the Tampa Bay Rays won last night and the Orioles are now two games back in the hunt for the final wild card spot. They are still in a position where they can ill afford to lose any more games. Bud Norris gave up four runs on Sunday and took...

Orioles have no fun in 4-2 loss to White Sox

The Baltimore Orioles are beginning to feel the pressure of the playoff hunt. A baserunning blunder and poor hitting in the clutch proved costly Sunday in a 4-2 loss to the White Sox. The defeat stalled Baltimore's run at Tampa Bay for the second and final AL wild-card spot, and ended Chicago's nine-game skid. Adam Jones hit his 31st home run for the Orioles, who went 0...

Orioles show lots of offense in 11-8 win over Mariners

The Orioles offense is terribly dependent on home runs. Never was that more apparent than Friday night when the Seattle Mariners seemed never to go away and the Orioles hit three important home runs. Each one was important—and symbolic. The offense was needed because Chris Tillman was uncharacteristically erratic in the Orioles 11-8 win over the Seattle Mariners before 25947 at...
