When Gregg Zaun flailed at his final pitch, Daniel Cabrera pumped his fist and looked skyward. Then he embraced his catcher, Ramon Hernandez, the first in a series of hugs that the pitcher delivered. Cabrera saved the last one for Sam Perlozzo, with the 6-foot-7, 25-year-old pitcher towering over his 5-9, 56-year-old manager.

At long last, the Orioles had accomplished what every other team has already done this season - string together four straight wins. But the emotions were more about Cabrera, who enjoyed one of the finest days of his big league career. Cabrera pitched a five-hit shutout in the Orioles' 15-0 throttling of the Toronto Blue Jays before 25,380 yesterday at Camden Yards.
