Mel Antonen Joins Vinny And Rob To Talk Orioles
They Orioles are off to a rough start to the 2014 season but Steve Davis knows it won’t all continue, things will get better.
After dropping two of three games to the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards, the Baltimore Orioles will begin a six-game road trip on Friday in Detroit against the Tigers.
If nothing else, the opening series of the regular season provided the Baltimore Orioles a good look at what could be their main source of competition this year. The Boston Red Sox got 12 hits off Wei-Yin Chen and beat the Orioles 4-3 Thursday night in the decisive matchup of a three-game set.
Wei-Yin Chen pitched four innings of three-hit ball, Henry Urrutia homered and the Baltimore Orioles tied a Minnesota Twins’ split squad 2-2 Friday.
Chris Davis had a long home run and three RBIs, J.J. Hardy hit a three-run shot and Wei-Yin Chen pitched three shutout innings to help the Baltimore Orioles beat a Pittsburgh Pirates split squad 9-2 on Sunday.
Buck’s Birds can match any lineup in baseball 1 through 9 when it comes to thunder in the lumber and they’re coming off the best fielding percentage season in baseball history. That’s all good but in the end this team will seal it’s fate with starting pitching.
Starting pitching is going to have to be a positive factor for the Birds if they want to be a force in the AL East.
Orioles agree with Ubaldo Jimenez; reports indicate that the deal is for four years and $50 million.
The Baltimore Orioles have promoted touted prospect Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk before their game against Boston and optioned left-hander Wei-Yin Chen to their Gulf Coast League affiliate.
Well, getting drilled by the Red Sox 13-2 is not exactly how the Baltimore Orioles needed to start their big nine-game road trip.
Colorado hit four home runs, including a tiebreaking, two-run shot by Wilin Rosario in the seventh inning, and the Rockies beat the Orioles 6-3 Friday night to extend Baltimore’s losing streak to four games.
