Play It Again

One last bird's eye view

Orioles manager Dave Trembley again watched the game from an unused broadcast booth as he finished serving the final day of his two-game suspension. Like Friday, bench coach Dave Jauss served as active manager, ending with a 1-1 record in his two-game stint. Toronto bench coach Brian Butterfield also managed Saturday while Cito Gaston missed his second consecutive game because of the death of his sister.

Stepping out on Eutaw

Luke Scott's fourth-inning homer was the 51st in Camden Yards history to land on Eutaw Street - behind the right-field scoreboard - and 21st hit there by an Oriole. It was Scott's third Eutaw Street homer, tying him with Brady Anderson for second most. Rafael Palmeiro is the leader with five.

On deck

The Orioles finish the first half with their most consistent pitcher, rookie Brad Bergesen (5-3, 3.59 ERA), on the mound at 1:35 p.m. today. Bergesen faced Toronto once before, a six-inning no-decision May 2. The Blue Jays counter with rookie left-hander Marc Rzepczynski (0-0, 1.50), who makes his second big league start.
