Orioles Have Dominated Red Sox Of Late

Chris Davis hits his 23rd homer against the Red SoxFenway South? Not anymore. Not in a while actually.

The Baltimore Orioles just took three out of four from the visiting first place Boston Red Sox and moved to within 1.5 games of AL East leaders. This isn’t some sort of new phenomenon. The Orioles have won six straight series against the Red Sox and 14 of their last 19 games.

They’re 5-2 against Boston this season with a +7 run differential (for those wondering about that fun statistic). Last season, the O’s were 13-5 against the Red Sox with a +28 RD.

Since Buck Showalter became the Orioles manager, the O’s are 29-20 against the Red Sox.

It’s insane how dominant they’ve been against Boston. Thanks, Robert Andino.

    Crowd should have been chanting “OVER-RATED” at the end of game 4 yesterday.

    If not for a baserunning blunder, I believe the Orioles would have swept the series with Boston. Regardless, they held that “mighty” offense in check for a significant part of the weekend and made their pitchers look ordinary.

      Without the baserunning blunder or if the umpire knew how to do his job. I know everybody always says “one call doesn’t change a game,” but in this case it did. Pedroia struck out but was allowed to continue batting and got on base. The next hitter got a home run. Instead of it being 1 run, it was 2. If the ump gets that call right and everything else stays the same, Wieters’s HR in the 9th is a walkoff for the win.
