Orioles fans can only hope Brian Matusz catches this many breaks when he’s actually pitching well. The young left hander gave up a career-high 13 hits in 5-plus innings to the Angels Tuesday night at Camden yards.
Wade Wass discusses what it felt like to be drafted, what he feels he would bring to the organization and what his future plans are, among other things.
Jason Hammel throws a gem to move the Orioles back on their winning ways
After falling to R.A. Dickey and the Mets 5-0 Monday, Johan Santana (W, 5-3) handcuffed the birds, who fell to the Mets again by the same score.
The birds had their leadoff man back after over a year on the disabled list.
If Orioles manager Buck Showalter was waiting for Jake Arrieta to pitch his way out of his funk, he found out it wasn’t going to happen Friday night at Camden Yards. He just didn’t find out early enough.
The defense was every bit as sloppy as it has been all year. The pitching was worse than it has been most of the season, especially the bullpen. But, in Boston last night, the Orioles rediscovered an old friend—the offense—as they beat the Red Sox 8-6 in 10 innings.
The Baltimore Orioles, who has lost seven of their last eight, travel to Fenway Park to take on the up and coming Red Sox. Bobby Valentine’s club has won six of their last nine, including taking three of four from the powerful Tigers.
An outing that began looking as if Jake Arrieta was putting things back together again ended more reminiscent of every outing he’s had in the last month.
The Orioles 6-game losing streak is history, primarily thanks to Brian Matusz. Matusz gave up just 1 run on 2 hits and 3 walks in 7.1 innings, leading the Birds past Tampa 2-1 Saturday.
