Orioles Roundup: O's end series against Rangers in an upsetting 0-4

The Orioles dropped their fourth game against the Texas Rangers on Sunday, ending the four-part series in a calamitous 0-4 for the O's.

Here's the latest news and notes surrounding the team.

Player Updates:

Looks like SP Asher Wojciechowski won't be starting again anytime soon. After giving up four runs in only two innings on Sunday, Orioles' manager Brandon Hyde senses the right-hander is feeling the effects of his large workload this season. Hyde announced after the game that Wojciechowski's next start will most likely not be against the Tigers on Tuesday, and there's no knowing how it will be pushed back. 

DH Renato Nunez put the Orioles on the board late in the second inning. The slugger hit with a solo shot off Rangers' starter Mike Minor, making the homerun Nunez's 29th long ball of the season. The 25-year-old infielder is hitting .251/.315/.473 with 68 runs scored, 29 home runs, 81 RBI and one stolen base in 543 appearances this season.

Injuries:

RP Josh Rogers, Elbow, 60-day IL, Out indefinitely 

SP Alex Cobb, Back, 60-day IL, 2020

Coming Up:

Tuesday, 9/10: Dodgers at Orioles, 7:05 p.m., Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Wednesday, 9/11: Dodgers at Orioles, 7:05 p.m., Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Thursday, 9/12: Dodgers at Orioles, 7:05 p.m., Oriole Park at Camden Yards

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.

OF Mason Williams, knee, out indefinitely
