2013 in review: Darren O'Day

After receiving an affordable two-year-plus-option deal following a stellar 2012 campaign, O'Day regressed in 2013 - but not enough that he wasn't a valuable member of the Orioles' bullpen.

2013 in review: Brian Matusz

Brian Matusz has turned into a solid lefty specialist, but that's not what we hoped the first-round draft pick would become. Due an increase in salary despite no signs of improvement against right-handed batters, Matusz may be trade bait this winter.

2013 in review: Manny Machado

Overshadowed, perhaps, by Chris Davis's 53 home runs, Manny Machado was nearly as valuable, despite hitting only a little better than the league average.

Red Sox 12, O's 3: Garbage Time

Scott Feldman surrendered five runs in the first inning, and the O's never came close to a serious comeback.

Series Preview: O's vs. Blue Jays, 24-26 September

Their playoff hopes gone, their youngest star on the DL, and their losing streak at five games, will the O's manage to win a couple of their final six contests?

O's 3, Red Sox 2: Davis hits #51, O's beat Koji

The O's overcame an immediate deficit, six walks from their starter, three errors, and ace reliever Koji Uehara's scoreless streak for a big win reminiscent of 2012.

Series Preview: O's @ Red Sox, 17-19 September

3-4 over their last seven games, the O's continue their final road trip of the season, with three games against the division-leading Red Sox before heading to Tropicana Field.

O's 5, Jays 3: Davis hits #50 in comeback win

Jason Hammel, making his first start since 28 July and his DL stint, gave up two homers, but Steve Clevenger drove in two runs in his debut as an Oriole and Chris Davis got the winning run with his fiftieth longball of the season.

Series Preview: O's vs. Yankees, 9-12 September

3-1 on the homestand thus far, the O's now face the Yankees for four games, in a series which could heavily swing the Wild Card race.

Orioles 3, White Sox 1: Leaning on the longball

Miguel Gonzalez gave up just one run over seven innings, and the O's thrice hit solo home runs to left field for a solid 3-1 win.
