Orioles closer Zach Britton joined Ed and Steve to talk about being in first place in the home stretch of the regular season.
This Orioles bullpen is really something special and the defense has been nothing short of spectacular.
The Baltimore Orioles just completed a tough 10-game road trip in which they faced three of the better teams in the American League.
Against all logic, the Baltimore Orioles stand alone atop the AL East at the All-Star break for the first time since 1997.
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
The 1st place Orioles once again are well represented at the All-Star game with the league high 3 players getting the bid to go in 2014.
At this time last week, I was writing about the Baltimore Orioles losing three of four games to the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards and how the 11-game home stand was not going as planned.
Barring any rain outs the Orioles will play game 81 of the 2014 season Sunday afternoon when they close out this 4-game series with the Rays.
Carlos Beltran hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning Friday night, lifting the New York Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles for their fourth straight win.
With the Orioles, Zach Britton was struggling for a while but seems to find his nitch. Although Kapler was pushing for O’Day, he says that “Britton has stepped up beautifully.” The issue with Baltimore right now is that they do not have anyone to really depend on for the top of the rotation. They need some guys to depend on especially in the post season.
Last year, the Orioles had 5 guys make the All-Star team: Jones, Wieters, Machado, Hardy, Tillman. That seems unlikely this year.
By the third Saturday in May or this Memorial Day weekend we’ve reached the quarter pole in the season and Scott Garceau takes the opportunity to analyze the Orioles start.
