MINNEAPOLIS — Steve Johnson may have been the best feel-good story in a Baltimore Orioles season filled with them last year. The Baltimore native and son of a former Oriole stormed onto the big-league stage and won all four of his decisions, providing a huge boost during a pennant push. His 2013 hasn't been as smooth; it was delayed for weeks by a lat injury and, when he returned to the big leagues Saturday, he lasted just four innings in the Orioles' 8-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins at...

MINNEAPOLIS — Thanks to the focus of guys like Jim Johnson and the toughness of Manny Machado, the Baltimore Orioles don't play like the youngest team in their division. Machado had a tiebreaking RBI single in a three-run 10th inning as the Orioles rallied for a 9-6 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. Machado — who stayed in the game after fouling a ball hard off his ankle in the fifth — rolled a single into right field that scored Chris Dickerson...

BALTIMORE —For the third straight game, the Baltimore Orioles won despite being out-hit by their opponent, instead using stingy defense, clutch late-inning pitching and opportunistic base running for a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals in front of an announced 12,344 at Camden Yards. "I think we've run the bases well the last couple nights," Manager Buck Showalter said. "We made some things happen there, trying to take advantage of what's there and what's not. " It was the...

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Right-hander Freddy Garcia did more than enough to earn the win in his first start in a Baltimore Orioles uniform on Saturday afternoon, holding the Los Angeles Angels hitless for six innings. The Orioles, on the other hand, took a while to do their part, needing a 10th-inning two-out single by Steve Pearce after blowing a four-run, seventh-inning lead for a 5-4 extra-inning win over the Angels in front of an announced 32,136 at Angel Stadium.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Leading by five runs in the sixth inning, the Baltimore Orioles appeared to be cruising to their first four-game sweep of the Athletics at Oakland Coliseum in 26 years. But it couldn't be that easy, not in Oakland, not against an A's team that the Orioles had previously swept just once in a four-game series — in May 1987 — in the clubs' histories. The A's stormed back in the sixth, tied the game in the seventh, returned the lead in the eighth and then tied it again in the bottom of...
