Orioles Roundup: Indians take down O's in 21-run slugfest

The Orioles lost their series opener in Cleveland 14-7 Thursday night. Here's the latest O's and Indians news. 

Player Notes: 

ORIOLES:

Trey Mancini launched a three-run home run in the third inning of Thursday's loss, his ninth homer on the year. Rio Ruiz chipped in with a two-run shot of his own, while Stevie Wilkerson went 2-for-4 with two RBI. 

Gabriel Ynoa suffered the loss, allowing four runs in 1 2/3 innings of work in relief of Dan Straily, who also gave up four runs. 

The Orioles activated relief pitcher Richard Bleier from the 10-day injured list Thursday. Bleier had been sidelined for almost five weeks with left shoulder tendinitis. RHP Jimmy Yacabonis was sent down to Triple-A Norfolk to make room on the roster.

No-hitter hurled in Beltway battle of Nationals-Orioles Double-A affiliates

No-hitter hurled in Beltway battle of Nationals-Orioles Double-A affiliates

In what *has* to be the most important game of the night between the Orioles and Nationals organizations, Bowie Baysox pitcher Michael Baumann threw a no-hitter against the visiting Harrisburg Senators.

The Double-A starting pitcher was absolutely filthy on the mound all night long, dominating the Senators lineup. Baumann needed just 94 pitches to mow down 29 batters, throwing 63 strikes while walking just two batters. He also struck out 10 as he thoroughly shutdown Harrisburg.

Baumann, who is rated the 24th-best prospect in the Orioles farm system according to MLB Pipeline, has had a dynamic start to his Double-A career. The 23-year old has a ridiculous 0.33 ERA through five games (three starts) in Bowie, spanning 27 innings.

This was, of course, his most impressive performance yet.

As for the Baysox offense, every player in the lineup recorded at least one hit. That's irony at its best.

At the time Baumann completed his gem, his organization’s Major League team wasn’t doing so well. The Orioles trailed the Nationals 5-1 in the seventh inning when it was announced on the big screen that Baumann had made history.

During a series in which the Orioles will be hard-pressed to beat their visitors from Washington, it’s nice to have something fun to point to from the minors.

Congratulations to Baumann. If he tosses a few more no-hitters, he’ll certainly find himself rocketing up prospect rankings list in a hurry.

Baltimore Orioles Roundup: Hanser Alberto breaks up potential combined perfect game with 9th inning single

The Orioles lost the series finale to the Rays Sunday afternoon at Camden Yards, but there was one silver lining from the matchup, and the silver lining was delivered by second baseman Hanser Alberto.

Player News

For the first eight innings Sunday afternoon, none of the at-bats by the Orioles produced a hit, as Tampa Bay’s Ryne Stanek and Ryan Yarbrough combining to not allow a base runner. That was until the bottom of the ninth inning when O's second baseman Hansel Alberto decided that his ballclub would not be on the opposing side of history, and hit a single against the switch, breaking up what would have been the first combined perfect game in MLB history.

Coming Up:

Tuesday 7/16: Nationals vs Orioles, 1:05 p.m., Oriole Park

Wednesday 7/17: Nationals vs Orioles, 7:05 p.m., Oriole Park
