There you have it, folks. The 2021 season has officially come to a close. While the Atlanta Braves took care of the Houston Astros in this year’s World Series, we can now look back at some stat leaders for the Orioles this past season!
Baseball: a sport full of fierce competition, edge-of-the-seat heroics and unbelievable feats. From the feel good story, to the star so big they shine before they arrive.
Ain’t the beer cold! It’s been a while since the Orioles delivered excitement like this! And even better, it comes at the expense of the New York Yankees!
For one last time this year, the Orioles play a series in Yankee Stadium. It’s historically a place the O’s suck in, yet this season has been a tad better. In six games played in the Bronx, the Orioles are 2-4. Still not good, but an improvement nonetheless.
The Orioles visited Rogers Centre for the first time since 2019 to face the Blue Jays. And during this series, the O’s did something they seldom do in that stadium, win a game.
This August has been arguably the worst month in Orioles history. With two games left on the calendar this month, the Birds are currently 3-23. To make matters worse, the Orioles now travel to Rogers Centre, a stadium where they have been historically bad in recent years.
After coming off a beautiful series victory over the Angels, the Orioles now host the best the American League has to offer, the Tampa Bay Rays.
Sweet victory; the losing streak is over! We’re not talking about it anymore! Instead, there’s a new streak in the air, and that’s a winning streak! It has been done before!
We all enjoy going to the ballpark to watch a game. The cheering of our home team, the smell of hot dogs and popcorn, vendors up and down the rows. It’s such a different feel, emotion, and experience that is difficult to top!
This series is going to be a collection of familiar faces, mixed in with some new ones.
Three weeks; that’s how long it has been since the Orioles last won a game. Unlike the previous 15 games, these three losses to the Atlanta Braves were all close and games the Orioles could have won.
When you’re on an 11-game losing streak, the very last team you want to have to play is the Tampa Bay Rays. Unfortunately for the Orioles, they must do this four times in the next four days.
Once again, I grace your phone, laptop, or any other smart device screen to tell you all that the Orioles have been swept again. This time, it was to the bats of the Boston Red Sox.
Ahh, this was quite a frustrating weekend of baseball. Despite the exciting Orioles Hall of Fame ceremonies, this series felt like a display of Hall of Shame play.
Happy weekend, Birdland! Our Orioles come back home following a frustrating three-game road trip in New York. Meeting the O’s in Baltimore will be the A.L.-East-leading Tampa Bay Rays.
The Orioles headed into Detroit to face the Tigers, and, believe it or not, it was a battle of two teams playing fantastic baseball since the All-Star Break.
Jonathan Schoop once called Baltimore home and gave the Orioles a steady presence at second base for years to come. Now, he once again will be across the diamond, as the former Oriole will be on the home team for the Motor City, Detroit Tigers, to open up a four-game set.
With the Nationals’ season hanging in the balance, Washington came to visit the Orioles for a critical three games to see what direction they would be heading towards.
The Baltimore Orioles have had, well, let’s just say an unimpressive season to date. Currently on pace to win 56 games, it’s easy to say there more than likely won’t be a playoff chase this season.
Hallelujah, Orioles baseball is back! After an extremely exciting All-Star period for Oriole fans, our team returns to work to take on the Kansas City Royals.
Since 2010, four Orioles have participated in the Home Run Derby. Names you’d expect to see, Chris Davis, Adam Jones, Manny Machado, and Mark Trumbo. For the first time since 2016, the Orioles again have a member of their team participating in the derby. Unlike the previous times, this appearance by Trey Mancini means soContinue reading “Trey Mancini adds Home Run Derby to storybook 2021 season”
With only two series left before the All-Star Break, the Blue Jays traveled to OPACY to start the first of these last two sets. It was the third meeting between the O’s and Jays in a month. I’ll tell you, I am a fan of the Blue Jays’ uniforms, but I’m tired of seeing them.
The Orioles traveled out to the West Coast to face the A.L. M.V.P. favorite, Shohei Ohtani, and the Los Angeles Angels. Us fans were kept up late, as the Angels won all three games in this series, two of them on walk-offs.
It’s the Battle of the Birds part two! The Orioles traveled up to the make shift home of the Toronto Blue Jays, currently playing in Buffalo, for a four-game series this past weekend.
The Orioles had the chance to host the Blue Jays for the first time this season. After a very tough fought series, the O’s eventually dropped this three-game set, one that could be deemed as a home run derby for the Orioles.
Another series down, another collection of woes for the Orioles. This four-game set in Cleveland was one any Oriole fan would love to forget.
A three-game series against the top team in the American League was a litmus test to see where the Orioles stacked up against the best. Instead, the Tampa Bay Rays walked away with another sweep, leaving the O’s 0-6 on the season against the Rays and 20 games under .500 on the year.
The NL East leading Mets came to visit Camden Yards for a mid-week two-game set that was split with one win by each team. In both games, the victor scored at least 10 runs, with the Mets scoring 14 in their win Wednesday night. These two games looked like football scores!
For the second time this season, the Mets and Orioles will face off in inter-league play. In the first two games this season, the Mets got the better of the Orioles, winning both of those games, one on a walk-off in the ninth inning.
The Orioles headed into this three-game series tied for the league’s worst record with the team they were set to face, the Minnesota Twins. Now, the O’s officially have the worst record in the majors.
Finally, the Orioles played someone in the A.L. East other than the Red Sox or Yankees. The Tampa Bay Rays came to town for a three-game set, their first three meetings this season.
The Yankees came into Baltimore to reek havoc on the Birds, and they did just that. Well, in the first two games at least.
The Orioles paid a visit to beautiful Citi Field in New York, as the O’s and Mets took part in a short two-game interleague series, one that featured a fantastic pitcher’s duel in game one and the return of “The Dark Knight” to his old stomping grounds in game two.
The Orioles had a chance to break even after a successful road trip. However, the Boston Red Sox and their A.L.-East-leading record stood in the way in this four-game home stand for the Birds.
In what was a hard fought series, the Orioles came away with a series win against the Oakland Athletics. The Orioles visited the Coliseum in Oakland, a stadium in which the O’s historically play under par. This weekend, however, the Orioles were ready to play and were able to steal a series victory from theContinue reading “O’s take series against A’s in Oakland: Series Recap 4/30/21 – 5/2/21”
The Yankees came to visit Camden Yards for the first time this season, and it was a hard fought series for the O’s, who came away with two separate one-run victories in this set.
The Orioles had their hands full this weekend, as the red hot Oakland Athletics made a trip to Camden Yards. The A’s entered this series on an 11-game win streak, while the O’s looked to snap a six-game losing streak to the A’s.
The Orioles headed into Miami this week in search of their first back-to-back series wins of the season. Unfortunately, they were unable to win the series, instead splitting it one game a piece.
The Orioles used some late game heroics to take the first two games of their first series at Globe Life Field, before dropping game three in 10 innings.
The Orioles were slated to finish off the first home stand of the season with a four-game set against the Mariners. Due to Mother Nature, all four games of this series were played as two sets of seven-inning doubleheaders, as Monday and Wednesday’s games were both postponed.
The Orioles made their return to Camden Yards after a six-game road trip, and for the first time since 2019, it was in front of fans. After dropping two out of three to the Yankees, our Orioles looked to bounce back against the Red Sox. Unfortunately, that did not happen.
There’s no better way to start a season than with a series sweep on the road. For the first time since 2017, the Orioles did just that, taking all three games of this first series over the Red Sox at Fenway.
