Baltimore Flying High
The Baltimore Orioles improved on their early season success with a 4-2 week, including a pair of wins against the Red Sox. The contest against Boston was not without its hiccups though. Dustin Pedroia was injured on a slide by Manny Machado on Friday Night. This appears have resulted in a retaliatory pitch by Matt Barnes on Sunday afternoon. The Orioles continue to hit and hold Baseball’s best record, even with key players on the shelf. Baltimore’s rotation continues to shine as well. No one shone brighter than Dylan Bundy on Friday night. He absolutely dominated the Red Sox during the contest.

Brad Brach continues to prove that he’s one of baseball’s best relievers, in any role. He has taken on the closing duties with his usual dominance. Staff ace Chris Tillman has made significant progression in his recovery from injury. He and All-Star closer Zach Britton should return to the fold soon. Once there, they’ll make the best team in baseball even better.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Orioles have been playing excellent baseball in all aspects of the game. The Orioles get more chances to solidify their holdings on the East this week. They are set to face the Rays and the Yankees.
