    After giving up run in top of 9th, Orioles rally for 3-2 win over New York Yankees
    In front of a packed house and a national television audience, Sunday evening at Camden Yards was supposed to belong to Derek Jeter and Francis Scott Key, perhaps in that order. But infielder Kelly Johnson, an Oriole for roughly two weeks, ignited his...
  • Newcomer Kelly Johnson fits Orioles' 'next man up' mentality perfectly

    Newcomer Kelly Johnson fits Orioles' 'next man up' mentality perfectly
    Kelly Johnson has worn an Orioles uniform for just two weeks, but he already owns his own little part of Oriole Magic. Derek Jeter, who was Johnson's teammate for most of this season with the New York Yankees, was the main attraction this weekend in his...
  • Yankees' second inning is enough to stop Orioles' six-game winning streak, 3-2

    Yankees' second inning is enough to stop Orioles' six-game winning streak, 3-2
    The Orioles’ September surge to the cusp of an American League East championship has been characterized by their strong starting pitching in general, and right-hander Miguel Gonzalez in particular. Gonzalez could tell early on against the New York...
  • Nelson Cruz will make the All-Star team, but what about some other Orioles?

    Nelson Cruz will make the All-Star team, but what about some other Orioles?
    Five Orioles made the All-Star Game last year in New York. That won’t happen again July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis. This year, the Orioles will have one All-Star for sure: Nelson Cruz, who is nearly 1 million votes ahead of the Boston Red...
  • Yankees rookie deadens Orioles bats

    Yankees rookie deadens Orioles bats
    The Orioles could have made a significant statement Saturday afternoon by beating the tumbling New York Yankees again and setting up a potential series sweep on national television Sunday night. Instead, the Orioles, who lead the American League East...
  • Possibility of Orioles using Tommy Hunter at closer looking more likely each day

    Possibility of Orioles using Tommy Hunter at closer looking more likely each day
    Don’t expect the Orioles to resolve their closer situation any time soon. As the club tries to distance itself from the mess the situation with Grant Balfour created, the Orioles' external search still seems to be focused on free-agent right-...
  • Orioles bullpen falters again in 5-4 loss to Yankees

    Orioles bullpen falters again in 5-4 loss to Yankees
    For the second straight night, the Orioles' fate was left to the bullpen, and the team's relievers were banged up and beaten yet again. With the games remaining in the regular season dwindling, the Orioles blew another chance to gain ground in the...
  • Jim Johnson's error and wild pitch in the 9th inning help Yankees beat Orioles, 6-5

    Jim Johnson's error and wild pitch in the 9th inning help Yankees beat Orioles, 6-5
    The Orioles headed into this week's four-game series at home against the New York Yankees knowing they had a chance to bury one of their closest rivals in the American League wild-card race. They left Camden Yards for Toronto early this morning...
  • Orioles notes and observations (deflating series, Johnson, Valencia, O'Day)

    Orioles notes and observations (deflating series, Johnson, Valencia, O'Day)
    After covering baseball for years, I’m always reluctant to proclaim the sky is falling on a team or, as Orioles manager Buck Showalter likes to say, pull the dirt up around them. One of the beauties of the sport is its length and the importance of...
  • Hot-hitting Danny Valencia could earn more at-bats against right-handers

    Hot-hitting Danny Valencia could earn more at-bats against right-handers
    Designated hitter Danny Valencia was already batting a major league-leading .548 (23-for-42) since Aug. 4 before his three-run home run in the eighth inning Thursday night. But while the right-handed Valencia has mostly been used against left-handers,...
  • Some All-Star observations (Orioles, Markakis, Cecil, Uehara)

    Some All-Star observations (Orioles, Markakis, Cecil, Uehara)
    The Orioles have four players in July 16th’s All-Star Game for the first time since 2005 and three starters for the first time since 1997. That’s pretty hard to fathom for me, a guy who has covered the event a bunch of times and only once...
  • Adam Jones' 9th-inning homer off Mariano Rivera gives Orioles a 2-1 win over Yankees

    Adam Jones' 9th-inning homer off Mariano Rivera gives Orioles a 2-1 win over Yankees
    Orioles center fielder Adam Jones says he doesn’t know what his statistics are against opposing pitchers, so when he walked to the plate in the ninth inning Sunday he didn’t realize he had just two singles and four strikeouts in 10 previous...
