Our Orioles Insider Brittany Ghiroli joined The Norris & Davis Show to talk all things O’s. The Orioles are tied for 1st in the AL East. They are in the playoffs for the first time in 15 years. Adam Jones have been voted team MVP.
The 14 consecutive losing seasons is finally over and it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders after getting our 81st victory.
Brad Mills pitched five innings of three-hit ball in a spot start for the injured Dan Haren after getting called up from the minors, and the Los Angeles Angels got home runs from Albert Pujols, Erick Aybar, Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo in a 6-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.
The Baltimore Orioles were well aware of just how little room for error there is when facing Jered Weaver. Jason Hammel would have needed a scoreless outing just to get a no-decision.
Miguel Gonzalez wore Nick Adenhart’s glove onto the mound at Angel Stadium, honoring the memory of his fellow former Angels minor leaguer on the occasion of his first major league start.
Jake Arrieta couldn’t make it out of the fourth inning for the second straight time, and the Orioles dropped a 9-7 decision to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. He ended up with his third consecutive no-decision after getting staked to a 7-3 lead.
Torii Hunter homered and scored four runs, Jered Weaver pitched into the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-1 Wednesday night for a two-game sweep.
On Tuesday night, the Baltimore Orioles were defeated by the Los Angeles Angels 7-3. In the game, Brian Matusz and three others were rocked to the tune of 17 hits and four home runs. Actually, we should give Luis Ayala a pass. He gave up a hit and no runs in his only inning of work.
Brian Matusz had another rocky start, and the Baltimore Orioles again struggled to come up with a clutch hit. That unsightly combination added up to a 7-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night, the fifth defeat in seven games for the skidding Orioles.
For Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the best seat in the house was right in front of the television in the visiting clubhouse.
It didn’t take much for Jake Arrieta to unravel after he held the Angels to just one hit over the first four innings: A bad pickoff throw, a couple of well-placed hits and suddenly Los Angeles has a five-run inning.
Brian Matusz has a long way to go to surpass the major league record of 27 consecutive losses set by Anthony Young with the New York Mets almost 20 years ago.
