For those who think 2013 was the same as it ever was for Baltimore’s baseball team… You weren’t paying attention! One playoff birth doesn’t give a free pass to the next season, which seemed to be the thought process of the fan base.
It has been tough to see what has happened to the Orioles, right in the mix with plenty of opportunities, and a complete inability to capitalize.
Chris Davis, Orioles first baseman, joined the Scott Garceau Show and discussed the match-up against the Red Sox live from Fenway Park.
Chris Davis hit a tiebreaking two-run single with two outs in the 12th inning, lifting the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night.
On a night in which they committed three errors, their starting pitcher walked six in five innings and they went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position, the Baltimore Orioles still managed to earn a monumental 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Chris Davis made his milestone moment matter to the wild card-chasing Orioles. Davis hit his major league-leading 50th home run, a tiebreaking solo shot in the eighth inning, and Baltimore erased a 3-0 deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Friday night, snapping a three-game losing streak.
Who knows what’s in store for the Orioles in the final days of the 2013 season, but I do know this the Yankees came to town and ripped a chunk out of our baseball hearts.
It would be a shame if the Orioles don’t make the playoffs, because they will then waste one of the greatest offensive seasons in team history, and certainly one of those epic seasons.
It sure didn’t look like he did a very good when he was here, but as it turns out, MacPhail made some great moves.
The competition is tighter than ever, especially in the American League. The playoff pushes and pennant races are locked and loaded. Here we go!
Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history.
The Baltimore Orioles aren’t waiting until September to mount a run at the playoffs. “Trust me, it’s been on,” manager Buck Showalter said after Sunday’s 10-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics. “You grind for February, March, April, May, June, July and August to have a chance to roll the dice the last five weeks, and that’s where we are.”
