O’s make final trip to Fenway for 4 games against Red Sox

With just 10 games left on the regular season schedule, the Orioles are set to kick off their final road trip, beginning at Fenway Park in Boston.

The final AL Wild Card spot seems just out of reach for the Orioles. However, the Red Sox would enjoy nothing more than cementing a spoiler moment against the Orioles in these four games.

The Red Sox have just been eliminated from playoff contention, a disappointing feat, which cost them $220 million.

For the Orioles, a series sweep in these four games could revive their playoff hopes. But as Oriole fans, we know nothing comes easy in Boston.

The four starting pitchers attempting to do CPR on the Birds’ playoff dreams will be Jordan Lyles, Kyle Bradish, Dean Kremer and a TBA starter for game four, presumably Spenser Watkins.

Between those three starters, only one run has been scored against them in their combined last three starts, which saw 26.2 innings pitched, two complete games and two shutouts.

The most dangerous team is the one who has nothing to play for, and right now, that is the Boston Red Sox.

The offense will have to continue scoring runs like they did in the final two games against Houston. Adley Rutschman had a very good series against the Astros, so look for him to continue to lead the charge.


The Baltimore Battery ❌️-FACTOR for this series is the top end of the bullpen.

Both losses against the Astros came as a result of very poor bullpen pitching late in those games, as the ‘pen allowed four runs in both the ninth inning of game three and the 11th of game four.

Outings like that will put a very dim ending to a fantastic season. It is up to arms like Cionel Pérez, Dillon Tate and Keegan Akin to set the tone out of the bullpen.


As reported earlier today by MASN’s Roch Kubatko, pitchers Beau Sulser and Logan Gillaspie are with the team, as well as newly acquired catcher Cam Gallagher, who says he’s on the taxi squad.


This series begins Monday at 7:05 p.m. EST. You can catch each game on MASN or on your local Orioles Radio Network station.
