Offseason

The 2010–11 offseason has been notable for the Orioles, featuring a complete makeover of their infield, with only Brian Roberts expected to reprise his starting role. On December 6, 2010, the Orioles completed a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks for third basemen Mark Reynolds, in exchange for relief pitchers David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio.[1] The next day, the Orioles lost corner infielder, second baseman (40 games in 2010), and lone 2010 All-Star representative Ty Wigginton when he signed with the Colorado Rockies. On December 9, however, a deal was struck with the Minnesota Twins, acquiring shortstop J. J. Hardy, utility infielder Brendan Harris and cash in exchange for minor league pitchers Jim Hoey and Brett Jacobson.[2] The following day, the Orioles re-signed former starting shortstop César Izturis, though now as a utility middle infielder.[3] Finally, after weeks of rumor and speculation, concerning possible first base signings, the Orioles inked veteran free agent Derrek Lee on January 6, 2011.[4]

The Orioles also worked to stabilize their bullpen whose depth had been weakened in trades to strengthen the infield. They began on December 13 by re-signing former starter and de facto closer Koji Uehara.[5] The following day, the Orioles signed former Toronto Blue Jays reliever Jeremy Accardo.[6] A month later on January 13, the Orioles signed former Blue Jays closer Kevin Gregg.[7] Though still on the 40-man roster, the Orioles may have lost reliever Alfredo Simón, as he was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the Dominican Republic, following an accidental shooting death of his cousin during a New Year's celebration.

In addition to shoring up their bullpen, the Orioles signed Justin Duchscherer to a one-year deal.[8]

On February 4, the Orioles signed free agent Vladimir Guerrero to solidify the offense. Guerrero had hit for 29 home runs and a .300 average in the 2010 season with the Texas Rangers. He also had a career average of .320 and 436 home runs prior to the 2011 season.

Regular season

The team started the season 4–0, the first time since the 1997 baseball season.[9]

The Orioles eliminated the Boston Red Sox from the playoff on the final day of the season, the last of their five victories over the Red Sox in September. The Orioles were 15–13 in September, including two extra-inning wins over the division champion New York Yankees and another two wins against the AL wild card Tampa Bay Rays on September 13–14. They also stopped division champion Detroit Tigers's Justin Verlander attempt at 25 wins, beating the Tigers 6–5 while scoring five runs in Verlander's seven innings.[10]

September 28 -- Game 162

Despite being in last place in the division (29 games out and with a 68–93 record), the Baltimore Orioles were a part of what is famously touted in Major League Baseball lore as the "Best Night Ever"[11] in baseball with the AL and NL wild cards still tied and were up for grabs.[12] The Orioles had gone 4-2 down the stretch vs. Boston with game 162 still left to play in Baltimore. The game was broadcast on ESPN as well as the MASN and NESN networks. The Orioles were aiming to play the role of spoiler and end the Red Sox season with help from the Tampa Bay Rays.

In the AL wild card race, The Boston Red Sox were suffering through a 7-19 stretch in which they had blown a nine-game lead on August 30 (which gave them more than a 99.7% chance of making the playoffs). This was a do-or-die game for the Red Sox, but felt they had a lot of momentum going into this game having beaten the Orioles, 8–7, the night before.

The Orioles sent Alfredo Simón, who had a history of success vs. Boston against Jon Lester, who was 14-0 lifetime with a 3.26 ERA against the Baltimore Orioles. The scoring got started with Dustin Pedroia getting a single to score Mike Avilés to give the Red Sox a 1–0 lead. However, the Orioles struck back in the bottom of the 3rd as J. J. Hardy, laced his 30th home run of the season into left field to give the O's a 2–1 advantage. In the top of the 4th with Marco Scutaro at 3rd base, a controversial balk call was made on Alfredo Simón which tied up the game at two apiece. The bottom of the 4th went by one-two-three for the O's. In the top of the 5th, Dustin Pedroia hit a one-out solo home run to give the Red Sox back the lead, 3–2. At the start of the bottom of the 7th, the game was delayed for 85 minutes because of some heavy thunderstorms that moved through the area. In the top of the 8th, Marco Scutaro had singled to right and was on as a hopeful insurance run to boost the Red Sox lead. Carl Crawford then picked up a double after Nolan Reimold mistimed his jump to make the catch and Adam Jones fired the ball to catcher Matt Wieters to get Scutaro out. Mike Avilés fouled out and the inning ended.

In the bottom of the 9th inning, the Boston Red Sox sported a 77–0 record when leading after the 8th inning and the O's were down 3–2 to the Red Sox versus top closer Jonathan Papelbon, Chris Davis laced a double to the garage door in right field to put him on 2nd base. The next batter was Nolan Reimold (who hit pretty well against Boston pitching) and on a 2-2 count, Reimold laced a drive into the gap in right center field which one hopped the warning track over the wall for a ground rule double. The next batter following with Reimold on 2nd base was Robert Andino. Andino had success against the Red Sox as he hit .300 versus their pitching and was having an excellent series. Andino laced the 1-1 pitch towards Carl Crawford who was playing a bit too far deep and slid and trapped the ball. Reimold made a mad dash towards home. After Reimold slid to score the winning run, he and Andino were mobbed by their teammates, as they knew that they had just eliminated the Red Sox.

The Orioles' win broke ESPN's viewership record for a Wednesday Night game bringing in a 1.6 rating, 1.546M household impressions, and 2.116M viewers. It also broke Major League Baseball's record for internet traffic in one day.[13] The game itself made national headlines as well the next morning on Headline News, CNN, Fox News, and many other international news media outlets.
