Jon Gray on point for Rockies

Gray's strong outing against the Orioles on Wednesday was his third straight start with at least seven innings pitched and one or fewer runs allowed. That ties the longest such streak in team history, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

Series preview: Mets vs. Rockies

A look at the upcoming series between the New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies, who come in with an extremely powerful lineup.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Despite a strong start from Dylan Bundy (five perfect innings before tiring), the Orioles lost 3-1 in the rubber match against the Rockies. It's just the second time this season that the O's - whose .698 home winning percentage is the best in baseball - have dropped a series at Camden Yards.

Keep record book handy for Trevor Story

Another day, another chapter in Story's dream season. His two RBIs on Tuesday increased his season total to 71 in 93 games. Over the last 25 years, only four other rookies reached 70 RBIs in a season in 93 or fewer games, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

  • Jose Abreu (2014, 78 games)
  • Ryan Braun (2007, 88 games)
  • Brian Daubach (1999, 89 games)
  • Albert Pujols (2001, 92 games)

Orioles ace Chris Tillman tied a season-high by allowing six runs as Baltimore lost to Colorado 6-3 to snap a five-game winning streak. In each of his previous four starts, Tillman - who came in with a 14-2 record, a 3.18 ERA, and legit Cy Young buzz - had gone at least seven innings and allowed no more than one earned run.

Small chance Rockies trade Arenado

Nolan Arenado is untouchable right now, but the Rockies better figure out how to sign him to a long-term deal this offseason or his name is going to become very popular in trade rumors next year, David Schoenfield writes. Untouchable players for all 30 teams

Lindor, Arenado could make #MLBRank

When projecting the future chances of Francisco Lindor and Nolan Arenado on our all-time top-100 list, we must consider that both players are behind Carlos Correa and Manny Machado at their respective positions. That doesn't mean they won't ever make the cut. #MLBRank: Future top 100 candidates

Lyles wears the collar for Rockies

Against the Orioles on Monday, Jordan Lyles became the first pitcher in Rockies history to commit a game-ending error, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

With their 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rockies, the Orioles have now ripped off five straight victories. It's the fifth time this season they've won at least five in a row. If Detroit holds on to beat Boston, the O's will have a two-game lead in the AL East.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Despite the two E's, Nolan ArenADO has at least tied up the ADO Bowl by hitting a solo shot to knot the game. Manny MachADO is 1-for-2 and hasn't had a fielding chance yet.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Early advantage in the ADO Bowl (3B Manny MachADO v. 3B Nolan ArenADO) goes to the Orioles' guy. In the first inning, Machado grounded to Arenado, who bobbled it for an E-5. For Arenado, who's won three Gold Gloves in his first three seasons, it's just his second error on the season.
