Remembering 1983: A look at the Orioles’ world championship for the week of May 27-June 2

A week without a win. A month without a home run by Eddie Murray. Both hapless streaks end May 27 as the Orioles turn back the Royals, 7-4, in Kansas City. Murray hits only his third homer — and the first since April 20 — to help end the Orioles’ slide. The next day, he connects again as left-hander

Orioles fall behind early again, offense sputters in 5-1 loss to Rays

The Orioles have struggled to solve the Tampa Bay Rays’ unconventional pitching experiment – using relievers to start games before a traditional starting pitcher enters in the second or third inning – scoring just three runs over the first two games of their weekend series at Tropicana Field. But

Orioles notes: Mark Trumbo now likely to avoid disabled list

Before Friday’s series opener at the Tampa Bay Rays, it appeared that Mark Trumbo was heading to the 10-day disabled list with a right knee injury, but now it appears he will avoid the DL. Trumbo received an injection in his knee Friday, but did not have the knee drained to relieve the swelling,

Orioles controlling running game key facet to rare low-scoring win Friday

The Orioles haven’t won many low-scoring games this season, and there are many reasons for that. A major reason why was on display in their 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. The win was the Orioles’ first in 19 games this season in which they’ve scored two runs or fewer. Orioles

The at-bat ended with a grounder to shortstop, a play about as ho-hum routine as baseball offers. But nothing was ho hum or routine about Aroldis Chapman firing triple-digit fumes to the sport’s reigning phenomenon, Shohei Ohtani.

Six years after no-regrets early extension with Adam Jones, Orioles have yet to return to that well

More than anything else that has happened with the Orioles this decade, the six-year contract extension that kept center fielder Adam Jones away from the free-agent market in May 2012 heralded a new era for an ascending, playoff-bound team. It isn’t lost on Jones, 32, that such a dusk has set in,
