At approximately 12:15 a.m. on the East Coast, the Baltimore Orioles surpassed the 1996 Oakland Athletics for most home runs in the month of June with a leadoff home run in the seventh inning off the bat of Hyun Soo Kim at Safeco Field in Seattle. The home run was the clubs 56 in June, surpassing the A’s 55 that was set 20 years ago. “Some guys are aware, some aren’t,” Mark...

It’s always interesting to see how announcers from different parts of the world call certain events, such as Iceland’s Gudmundur Benediktsson, or England’s Ian Darke and Steve McManaman, or Canada’s Harnarayan Singh and his Punjabi calls. The latest fun one is from Tuesday, and has these Korean broadcasters calling Hyun-Soo Kim’s second home run of the season for the Baltimore...
Brad Brach discusses what it was like playing in San Diego, how he has been able to limit the walks over his career, slowing the game down on the mound and what it would mean to him to play in the All-Star Game in San Diego.
A dumpster fire. A black hole. A void. An automatic out. Call it what you will; left field was a lot of things for the 2015 Baltimore Orioles, none of them good. After losing Nelson Cruz to free agency, a motley crew of assorted spare parts combined to slash .210/.287/.353. Replacing Cruz’s league-leading 40 home runs wasn’t supposed to be easy, but still, better results were...

HOUSTON (AP) Adam Jones recently procured the final pieces of an extremely rare shoe collection. Just how exclusive is this footwear?

Before the 2016 Major League Baseball season, the Baltimore Orioles were merely a thought in anyone’s head. In a less-than stellar American League East, the Birds were projected to finish last, struggle on the mound and basically present anything but a threat. Well, two weeks before the All-Star break, the Orioles have surprised just about everyone, except themselves. Projected...
The Baltimore Orioles have a Manny Machado garden gnome giveaway planned for July 9, but it’s not just any ordinary garden gnome giveaway. For this one, the Orioles went all out by creating a mythical backstory for the gnome and an entire social media campaign behind the young third baseman. In a branding and marketing effort, the team wants fans to call special plays by...
Baseball is full of history, and its history is certainly full of crazy injuries. On Wednesday, the baseball world added another one to the “he hurt himself doing what?” list.

Yes, Duensing managed to hurt...
After spending the first seven years of his major league career with the Twins, Brian Duensing is in his first with the Orioles, one that will include a lengthy absence as a result of a freak injury. The Orioles played the Rangers on Monday in a make up game for one that was postponed due to rain in mid-April. It was during that game the Baltimore relief pitcher felt discomfort in...
