Chris Davis Is The Orioles Single-Season Home Run King
Baltimore Sports Report - over 3 years
Your browser does not support iframes. Tuesday night in Boston, Chris Davis belted his 51st home run of the season and become the Baltimore Orioles franchise leader in home runs in a single season. Davis passed Brady Anderson, who hit 50 in 1996, with a shot to centerfield that tied the game at two. As MASNSports.com’s Roch Kubatko points out, 23 of Davis’ 51 homers have tied or given the Orioles a lead this season. Davis is the third player in major league history to hit 50 or more homers and 40 doubles in a single season, joining Babe Ruth (59 homers, 44 doubles in 1921) and Albert Belle (52 homers, 50 doubles in 1995). He’s the first player in Orioles history to hit 40 doubles and 40 homers in a single season. The post Chris Davis Is The Orioles Single-Season Home Run King appeared first on Baltimore Sports Report.

Baseball's Steroid Silence: Suspect No Evil
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
For anyone who's paying attention, baseball is becoming more and more difficult to watch, to follow, to trust. But, despite a constant flow of vivid indications that the great game remains thoroughly corrupted by steroid abuse, almost no one who makes a living from professional baseball is paying attention. Coaches, managers, broadcasters and journalists have conspired, perhaps unconsciously, to believe that the old pastime has moved beyond its "steroid era." If they faced the reality that it obviously has not, they would, if they were entirely honest, consider walking away from a sport that has lost its integrity. Consider this, from the website of The Baltimore Sun: "There are a number of statistical undertones as Chris Davis continues one of the greatest offensive seasons in Orioles history. Davis has a strong chance of overtaking Brady Anderson's single-season franchise home run record (50 in 1996) . . . . Davis can also play a role in preventing Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cab ...

White Sox-Orioles: Chicago's Skid Hits 8 With 4-0 Loss To Baltimore
Huffington Post - over 3 years
BALTIMORE — The Chicago White Sox had just dropped their eighth straight game to fall deeper into the AL Central cellar, and someone asked manager Robin Ventura if his players might be putting too much pressure on themselves to win. "I don't think they're pressing," Ventura said after a 4-0 loss to Baltimore on Friday night. "It's just the way it is. I don't know what there is to press for." Chicago doesn't have much left to play for this season, and at this juncture it's clear the White Sox are no match for teams in pursuit of a playoff berth. Chicago fell to 0-8 on a road trip that began with three losses in Boston and three more at Yankee Stadium. The White Sox have scored only one run in the first two games of this series, which runs through Sunday. In this one, Scott Feldman (5-4) pitched a five-hitter for his first career shutout and second complete game. The right-hander walked one, struck out three and allowed only one runner past first base. "We just couldn't get anything g ...

No. 40
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
BALTIMORE -- Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 40th home run and Nate McLouth contributed his first career grand slam to a power display that carried the Baltimore Orioles past the Seattle Mariners 11-8 Friday night. Ryan Flaherty also homered and had a career-high three hits for the Orioles, who never trailed but had to withstand four homers by Seattle. McLouth connected off Brandon Maurer to make it 11-6 in the sixth, and that was enough offense to fend off the Mariners, who closed the gap in the eighth with solo shots from Kendrys Morales and Michael Morse. Jim Johnson worked the ninth to earn his 38th save and secure the victory for Chris Tillman (14-3). Davis drove a pitch from Aaron Harang (5-10) over the right-field wall and onto Eutaw Street to give Baltimore a 5-3 lead in the third inning. The solo homer traveled an estimated 442 feet and gave Davis a major-league high 101 RBIs. He is the fifth Oriole to hit 40 homers in a season, joining ...

West Springfield's Joe Saunders Debuts with the Orioles
Burke Patch - over 4 years
West Springfield High School graduate Joe Saunders will debut with the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday night, as they continue their four-game series against the Chicago White Sox. Saunders was traded on Sunday by the Diamondbacks, in return for reliever Matt Lindstrom. The Orioles are making a run for the playoffs, something they have not reached since 1997, and the team wanted a veteran pitcher who can help them get there. “We’ve liked Joe Saunders for quite awhile,” said Baltimore general manager Dan Duquette. “He’s pitched in the American League. He’s pitched in the playoffs. He’s pitched in a tough ballpark in Arizona. And we just like his experience," he said. "I also like the fact that he’s left-handed," added Duquette. "I think that gives us a little bit better balance as we face some of those left-handed hitting lineups down the stretch.” Saunders grew up attending O's games at Camden Yards, and said playing for the team has been a dream. “It is pretty surr ...

IronBirds Fall To Renegades, 5-3, In Home Opener
Bel Air Patch - over 4 years
The IronBirds rallied to tie Wednesday's home opener before Hudson Valley pulled away in the ninth for a 5-3 win at Ripken Stadium. See the IronBirds website for a complete play-by-play and a box score. Renegades righty Taylor Guerrieri scattered two hits while striking out six in five innings. "We faced a pretty good pitcher," manager Gary Allenson said. "He had four major league pitches: a live fastball, good breaking ball, and a really good change-up. He mixed it up." Once he departed, though, the IronBirds came back to life. Allenson praised his ballplayers for tying the game up with a three-run, sixth-inning rally. He noted a strong fan base in his first game with the IronBirds, but said he didn't think the players were overwhelmed by the experience of playng before 6,577 fans. "We already had our opening day in Hudson Valley," he said. "They already experienced that, so they were a litlte more relaxed." ——— Below is a series of live updates from the ballpark ...

Baltimore Sports Report - almost 5 years
The Orioles kicked off their double header against the Texas Rangers with a bang. Ryan Flaherty led off the game with his first career home run, then J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis followed him in order. Hardy’s home run traveled 424 feet, while Markakis’ reached Eutaw Street. Here are some fun stats on the home runs from your friendly local Orioles reporters: The last team to lead off a game with three homers was the 2007 Milwaukee Brewers with Rickie Weeks, J.J. Hardy and Ryan Braun. The last time the Orioles hit three consecutive home runs was August 21, 2010 with Ty Wigginton, Luke Scott and Josh Bell. The last time the Orioles hit three home runs in the first inning (not back-to-back-to-back) was June 12, 1999 with Brady Anderson, Mike Bordick and Will Clark.

Prune Packers Resurrected
Healdsburg Patch - almost 5 years
  Since the SF Giants' World Series win in 2010, America's favorite pasttime is gradually becoming Healdsburg's favorite obsession. Last summer, Sonoma County entrepreneur Howard Leonhardt launched Wine Country Baseball, with Healdsburg's Rec Park as its base playing venue.  WCB played out the season and will likely return this year. Then, in San Rafael, a new pro team, the Pacifics, is picking up lots of excitement up and down the North Bay. But now, hot on the heels of last week's dedication of the renovated Clarence Ruonavaara Grandstands at Art McCaffrey Field at Rec Park, we have a new venture from local baseballers. A brainchild of former WCB manager Riley Sullivan and Healdsburg sports champions Richard Bugarske and Joe Simmons, the new venture is an updated version of the famed Prune Packers -- the old semi-pro team that Ruonavaara both played for and coached. "We just want to bring competitive baseball to the community, and to provide Rec Park fans with bette ...

(Bonds stole 52 bases in 1990 and hit 73 home runs in 2001.) Anderson was not able to duplicate his 50 home run season; however, for a nine-year stretch from 1992 - 2000, he averaged 21 home runs, 6 triples, 31 doubles, 96 runs scored, 70 RBI, 27 stolen bases, a .376 on base average, a .462 slugging average, and 14 hit by pitch per year as a leadoff hitter, despite one season shortened two months by a player strike (1994) and another shortened one month by owner lockout (1995).
    Anderson made his third All-Star appearance at the 1997 All-Star Game in Cleveland, where he played the entire game in the leadoff spot for the American League and went 2 for 4 with a double high off the 19-foot left field wall against pitcher Curt Schilling.

The game was released on August 31, 1998 for the PlayStation. In 1999, Anderson rebounded from an injury-plagued 1998 campaign for one of the best all-around seasons of his career. He led American League leadoff hitters with a .408 on-base percentage and reached base 279 times, ninth most in the league. For the season, Anderson batted .282 with 28 doubles, 5 triples, 24 home runs, 109 runs scored, 81 runs batted in, 36 stolen bases, 96 walks, and 24 hit by pitch. He became the only leadoff hitter in history with three 75 RBI seasons to his credit.

He broke his own American League record for hit by pitch in a season by a left-handed batter, set in 1996.
