    Jim Johnson blows sixth save of the year in loss to the Yankees
    NEW YORK – There is a way to crunch the numbers so that Jim Johnson’s 2013 season looks palatable. The Orioles closer is still leading the majors with 29 saves. He has made 43 appearances in the first half – tied for fourth most in all...

    Mark Reynolds homers again
    I think it is fair to say that Mark Reynolds is on a bit of a tear. In Saturday’s second inning, Reynolds hit a 91-mph fastball from CC Sabathia for his 21st home run of the season. It also was his ninth in nine games and seventh in September....

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Sox mailbag
    Do you think Sox overpaid for Brett Myers? The player to be named later is most likely a high 2011 draft pick, which is why they have to wait. Jim F., Denver Jim, thanks for your patience. I realize you submitted this question before the player to be...

    Nate McLouth's homer breaks tie, helps the Orioles beat the Yankees 4-3
    From the moment the ball made contact with Nate McLouth's bat and sailed toward the right-field foul pole of Camden Yards, McLouth's mind raced back to last October. The Orioles left fielder couldn't help but think back to the Orioles' final game of...
  • Orioles bash Yankees, 11-3, as rivals' role reversal continues

    Orioles bash Yankees, 11-3, as rivals' role reversal continues
    To suggest that there has been a reversal of fortune — that after an 11-3 bludgeoning of the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Camden Yards the Orioles and Bronx Bombers have swapped places — would be premature. The Yankees, after all,...

    Initial take on Josh Hamilton to the Angels (and an Orioles wrinkle?)

    Yankees defeat the Orioles 6-4 in the 10th, Johnson blows third straight save opportunity
    Orioles closer Jim Johnson can be depended on to always be at his locker to answer questions anytime he becomes a focal point of a game following a blown save. Those times have been rare, until recently, as Johnson has blown three consecutive ninth-...

    Pedro Strop's strong stretch comes to an end

    Nate McLouth's walk-off homer against Yankees snaps Orioles' skid
    You could pick a number of storylines from a sticky, summer-like Tuesday evening at Camden Yards and really not go wrong. There was the obvious, made-for-TV clip of Nate McLouth lifting a game-ending homer over the right-field wall in the bottom of...
