Orioles hold steady in Power Rankings

With losses in three of their last four games, the O's are starting to fade in the AL East. Without Chris Tillman in the rotation, Baltimore is treading water: Wade Miley, Ubaldo Jimenez and Yovani Gallardo will face the Jays in a big series this week. Week 21 Power Rankings

Gausman's road woes come to an end

With a win after seven shutout innings against the Yankees on Sunday, Kevin Gausman ended his streak of 25 consecutive road starts without a victory, ESPN Stats & Info notes. That was the second-longest such streak by any starter in the last 100 years and dated back to Aug. 17, 2014.

Another year, another 40-homer Oriole

With Mark Trumbo hitting No. 40 on Sunday, the O's became the first team since 2000 for which a different player hit at least 40 homers in each of three consecutive seasons (Chris Davis in 2015, Nelson Cruz in '14), per the Elias Sports Bureau. The last team to do so was Toronto from 1998-2000.

Stats & Info

No doubt about No. 40 for Mark Trumbo

Trumbo reached the mark against the Yankees on Sunday with a 422-foot blast off rookie reliever Ben Heller, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

From Danny Knobler at Yankee Stadium: For the second straight day at Yankee Stadium and the 29th time this season, an Orioles starting pitcher failed to finish the fifth inning. Dylan Bundy allowed five runs in four innings Saturday, raising the Orioles' rotation ERA for the season to 5.01. No team since the 2001 Cleveland Indians (with rookie CC Sabathia and 28-year-old Bartolo Colon) has made the playoffs with a rotation ERA over 5.00.

Update from Danny Knobler as Gary Sanchez goes yard again: Now Gary Sanchez doesn't need to share his history with anyone else. The Yankees catcher homered again Saturday, and became the first major-league player ever with 11 home runs in the first 23 games of his career. Trevor Story (earlier this season) and George Scott (in 1966) each had 10. Sanchez's latest home run came in the fourth inning, on a 94 mph fastball from Orioles starter Dylan Bundy. It was the first of his 11 homers to come on a fastball harder than 91 mph, and it brought on the first curtain call of his Yankee career. The Yankee Stadium fans, who chanted his full name after his home run Friday night, called out just his first name Saturday, eventually bringing him to the top step of the dugout. Sanchez also threw out another runner trying to steal, his sixth in nine attempts.

Sanchez homers again, Yankees rout Orioles 14-4

Rookie Gary Sanchez homered for the eighth time in nine games and drove in four runs as the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 14-4 Friday night in the opener of their weekend series.

Max Scherzer stopped the Nats' four-game losing streak, stopped a hot-hitting Orioles team (8 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 10 K), and stopped fans from panicking with Strasburg on the DL. He even stopped a ground ball between his legs - backwards. Pretty sure that makes him a stopper.

If you've never seen Glenn Donnellan play his Electric Slugger - an amped violin that he custom-crafted out of a bat - you're missing out. If you've never seen Nats pitching coach Mike Maddux play the Electric Slugger...well, you're probably OK. Here's Maddux fiddling around after Donnellan's national anthem soundcheck at Nats Park.

How do Orioles rank in intangibles?

It's a no-brainer that Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo rank high in power, but where does Adam Jones rank in baserunning skill? What about Darren O'Day and Ubaldo Jimenez when it comes to inducing weak contact? Dan Szymborski breaks it down. Ranking "intangible" tools (Insider)
