  • Orioles clinch 14th straight losing season with 6-3 loss to Rays

    Orioles clinch 14th straight losing season with 6-3 loss to Rays
    What had been inevitable for weeks -- if not months -- became official Saturday when the Orioles clinched another losing season with a listless defeat that typifies their 14 years of futility. A subpar start and some poor at-bats in key spots -- sound...
  • Rays pound Guthrie in Orioles' 8-1 loss

    Rays pound Guthrie in Orioles' 8-1 loss
    During another difficult season in which losses have piled up at a dizzying rate, Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie has managed to keep his composure, or at least hold off his frustration until he was well outside the camera's view. But that changed in an...
  • Rays roll past Orioles, 5-2, as they chase Red Sox

    Rays roll past Orioles, 5-2, as they chase Red Sox
    The Orioles stuck to their usual September story line on Monday night, opening the first full series of the month here against a division rival that came into Camden Yards on a roll and bursting with incentive to mop the infield with the last-place home...
  • Everyone walks away happy

    The field for this fall's playoffs might be far different if Josh Byrnes, then the Diamondbacks general manager, hadn't approached the Yankees' Brian Cashman with an idea shortly before Thanksgiving in 2009. What transpired next may have contributed to...
  • Tigers' success starts at top

    Like Rudolf Nureyev, the Tigers have turned on a dime. They appeared to be downsizing less than two years ago when they traded Curtis Granderson and Edwin Jackson in moves that seemed to show owner Mike Ilitch's concern over a bloated payroll. But that...
  • Rays make Orioles' Britton pay for one bad inning

    Rays make Orioles' Britton pay for one bad inning
    The Orioles' 6-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on an ugly, rainy, sloppy night Friday at Camden Yards provided a crystal-clear example of what separates successful veteran pitchers from inexperienced ones that are seemingly headed toward that path. Tampa...
  • Markakis busts out of slump in Orioles' 7-0 win

    Markakis busts out of slump in Orioles' 7-0 win
    Nearly four hours before Friday night's game, struggling right fielder Nick Markakis, clad in shorts and a white T-shirt, stood in the batter's box and sprayed balls around the field at a mostly empty Camden Yards. It certainly wasn't the first time...
  • Early exit for Matusz in Orioles' 9-6 loss to Rays

    Early exit for Matusz in Orioles' 9-6 loss to Rays
    Third baseman Mark Reynolds made two errors -- both leading to Tampa Bay Rays runs -- and center fielder Adam Jones played Evan Longoria's tailing liner into a two-run, inside-the-park home run. The Rays got absolutely no resistance in stealing four...
  • Jones 'just missed the ball' on Longoria's inside-the-park home run

    Jones 'just missed the ball' on Longoria's inside-the-park home run
    The Orioles' series finale with the Tampa Bay Rays had already included a series of unusual plays when Evan Longoria came up in the eighth inning and lined a Jeremy Accardo pitch to center field. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones broke on the ball, but...
  • Brian Matusz 'hasn't regained that zip' on his fastball

    Brian Matusz 'hasn't regained that zip' on his fastball
    After an abysmal start on Sunday in which he retired just three of the 13 batters he faced, Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz insisted that he was “100 percent healthy.” But he looked so out of sync in the 9-6 loss, Rays manager Joe Maddon said...
  • Many worthy, but few chosen

    Matt Thornton provided the model. Gavin Floyd reaffirmed it, reaching his potential for the White Sox after frustrating the Phillies. General manager Ken Williams had those success stories, and others, in mind when he read scouting reports from one of...
  • Orioles' Hammel gives himself passing grade in first Grapefruit League outing

    Orioles' Hammel gives himself passing grade in first Grapefruit League outing
    Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel graded out his first Grapefruit League outing with his new team Thursday afternoon — in which he tossed a pair of scoreless innings in a 2-1 win over the Atlanta Braves at Ed Smith Stadium — as a "B, C-plus."...
