Orioles adding Walker to expanded roster

With the division title in hand and an opportunity to rest key players heading into the postseason, the Orioles will select the contract of first baseman Christian Walker from Triple-A Norfolk and add him to their expanded roster. Walker should be at Camden Yards before tonight's game. It's a relatively short flight from Sarasota, where he's been part of the taxi squad at the Ed ... read more

Orioles remember Monica Barlow on the day they clinch

There will be another game tonight at Camden Yards, another lineup to post and more matchups to dissect. The regular season hasn't ended. It just felt that way last night. Bud Norris opposes J.A. Happ, and this game also counts in the standings. The Orioles are vying for home-field advantage. There's still a carrot dangling in front of them before they sink their teeth into ... read more

Duquette: "We're going to party like it's 1969"

The party started in the outfield at Camden Yards, spilled onto the infield, moved to the clubhouse and returned to the field. Players sprayed champagne and beer. Adam Jones pied pretty much everyone in sight and finally got a taste of his own confection. It was pure bedlam, as you'd expect after the Orioles won their division for the first time since 1997 and clinched ... read more

Hearing from Showalter after division-clinching win

I've got plenty of quotes to pass along from my champagne-soaked recorder. Here's a sampling from manager Buck Showalter, who truly loved every minute of the time he spent on the field - exchanging hugs with players, coaches and family members, and waving to fans as they kept chanting his name. "You get older, you want to get a good angle and a good seat ... read more

Jimenez in line for the win (O's win 8-2, clinch AL East)

If you told Orioles manager Buck Showalter before tonight's game that he'd get five innings of two-run ball out of starter Ubaldo Jimenez, he probably would have signed up for it in blood, to borrow one of his favorite expressions. Jimenez threw 30 pitches in the first inning and 30 more in the second. He faced 12 batters in two innings and issued four walks, ... read more

More notes and quotes as Orioles try to clinch division (O's lead 4-2)

The 2014 Orioles are the 20th team in club history to win at least 90 games. A win tonight gives the Orioles their ninth American League East title. They've clinched at home only twice, in 1979 and 1969. They clinched in Washington in 1970, New York in 1971, Milwaukee in 1973, Detroit in 1974 and Milwaukee again in 1983 and 1997. The Orioles have clinched ... read more

Pregame on clubhouse mood, Jimenez, Steve Johnson and more

On the surface, the players inside the home clubhouse at Camden Yards this afternoon are going about their business in the usual manner. It's just another day, right? "That may be the way it looks to you," said Orioles manager Buck Showalter, "but that ain't right." OK, maybe they just mask their excitement better than most. "Let's face it, the locker room for quite a ... read more

Orioles lineup vs. Blue Jays

The Orioles will try to shave off the final game of their magic number tonight and celebrate their first division title since 1997 - and the first clinched at home with a win in 45 years. Ubaldo Jimenez is making his first start since Aug. 16. He's 2-3 with a 4.89 ERA in seven career starts against the Blue Jays. Toronto right-hander Drew Hutchison is ... read more
