Orioles pitching coach Rick Adair joined The Norris & Davis Show to talk about the Orioles rotation and the progress of some guys working through the system.
Edwin Jackson took a one-hitter into the seventh inning, Adam LaRoche homered, and the Washington Nationals beat rookie Wei-Yin Chen and the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 on Saturday night.
Adam Jones had a one-word description of the Orioles’ second straight shutout win: “Chen-sational.”
The Orioles will send Wei-Yin Chen to the hill to put the brakes on a 5-game losing streak.
Since taking two of three games from the Washington Nationals two weeks ago, things have not gone well for the Baltimore Orioles.
The Birds will hope Wei-Yin Chen can snap the 5-game skid when he faces the Rays Friday night.
Wei-Yin Chen wasn’t fooling anyone with his breaking ball, least of all Stephen Strasburg.
The Birds’ loss Monday night dropped them back into a tie with the Tampa Bay Rays for first place in the AL East. It also was the 4th straight loss at home to the Yankees this season.
Wei-Yin Chen had a rocky start and a lamentable finish in his major league debut. In between, the Taiwan native performed pretty darn well.
Carl Pavano struggled as the Baltimore Orioles had finished with 14 hits in an 11-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
For 14 consecutive seasons, the Baltimore Orioles have tried nearly everything to improve. Now, they’re going the foreign route.
The dark clouds, swirling winds and threat of severe thunderstorms seemed like an appropriate backdrop Sunday for the Baltimore Orioles’ first workout for pitchers and catchers.
