Orioles score twice in eighth, Britton ties AL consecutive-saves mark in 9-7 win against Astros

Right-hander Dylan Bundy has been the most consistent pitcher in the Orioles rotation this season, but he has also been vulnerable to some of the same problems that have hampered his less-successful fellow starters. On a sizzling afternoon that would e…

Orioles flummoxed by Astros’ off-speed, will continue to see fewer fastballs this weekend

Orioles manager Buck Showalter had the Houston Astros’ penchant for living off pitching backwards wired before Friday’s series opener against the best team in the American League. And in the 8-7 loss to the Astros, the script played out as Showalter expected, with right-hander Mike Fiers flummoxing

Astros jump on Ubaldo Jiménez early, hold on for 8-7 win over Orioles

The Orioles came into their three-game series against the high-flying Houston Astros with a little bit of momentum after sweeping a four-game series against the Texas Rangers.

Orioles lefty Richard Bleier finding success being unapologetically himself

Everybody wins when Richard Bleier jogs in from the bullpen, at least where the Orioles are concerned. Manager Buck Showalter gets the services of as reliable a reliever as he’s had all year. The position players get a quick, efficient pitcher to work behind and are back in the batter’s box in
