Baltimore Orioles Roundup: Steve Wilkerson's first MLB homer lifts O's over White Sox

The Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 4-3 in the rubber game of their three-game set Wednesday night. Here's the latest O's and White Sox news. 



Right fielder Steve Wilkerson hit his first MLB home run in the fourth inning, a solo shot to put Baltimore up 4-1. It proved to be the deciding run, as the White Sox scored only two more runs in the game. 

John Means earned the win on his 25th birthday Wednesday, going five innings and allowing just one run on four hits and a walk, striking out six. Means is now 3-2 on the season. 

Chris Davis missed out on Wednesday's win due to a personal matter. After a historically cold start, Davis is hitting .360 in his last nine games. 

A pair of Orioles fans, Joe and Katie Demski, got married in their O's jerseys on Wednesday! 


Ervin Santana suffered his second loss of 2019, giving up four runs (all earned) on six hits in 4 2/3 innings of work. The 36-year old's ERA now sits at 9.45. 

First baseman Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a walk and drove in two runs for Chicago in the losing effort Wednesday. The two-time All-Star had a good game but is off to a cold start overall, now batting just .231 in 2019.

The most unbelievable catch of the Orioles' dismal season came in the team's final game

The most unbelievable catch of the Orioles' dismal season came in the team's final game

It's not how you start, it's how you finish, and boy did Orioles right fielder Steve Wilkerson make sure the team went out with a bang against the Boston Red Sox.

Bottom of the eighth, game knotted at four, Jackie Bradley Jr. sent what seemed to be a moonshot to right field...

But what happens next is arguably the best catch of the entire MLB season. 

This catch by Wilkerson is nothing less than spectacular. Not only did he possess the focus to track the ball beyond the wall, but the athleticism to make the catch while almost tumbling over backwards into the crowd. 

This year may have been a huge let down for Baltimore, but here's to a bright spot heading into the offseason.

Orioles Roundup: Baltimore topples Blue Jays, 11-4

The Orioles are now five games better than last season's woeful 47-115 record. While they continue to win meaningless games late in the season, their poor season won't go away. 

Player Notes:

Dylan Bundy gave up only two runs in seven innings pitched against the Blue Jays, bringing his season's ERA down to 4.79. 

Also, Trey Mancini went a perfect 5-5 in the Orioles win Tuesday night. He's now batting .373 against Toronto, hitting 25 of his 94 RBI this season against Toronto. Dwight Smith Jr. also impressed with a 3-4 showing, hitting a homer and three RBI of his own.
