Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers are in a 1-0 hole to the Orioles in the American League Division Series partly because the 2013 Cy Young Award winner spent the first two innings trying to avoid one on the mound. Scherzer and Orioles starter Chris Tillman began their windups in a similar spot early in the game, the Tigers starter said, creating a hole in the dirt near the pitching rubber. Scherzer compensated by taking a wider step off the rubber to start his motion, which threw his deliver out of whack and allowed the Orioles to pick up five of the seven hits they got off Scherzer - and three crucial early runs - before he adjusted.

I'm not the only one that has thought this; it's not exactly a novel concept. But these Orioles remind me so much of the 2012 team that made the playoffs and snapped the 14-year losing streak. And this club is better. It's so much more experienced. They are excelling in extra-inning games (12-3) and are pretty good in one-run games (20-16). These players think they can win against anyone, which is exceptionally important. And I don't think they have played their best baseball yet. They haven't really gone on a run where their offense, defense and pitching is clicking at the same time.

Coming off last night's 7-5 walk-off win over the Tigers, the Orioles will face Tigers ace Justin Verlander, who has 7-0 record and 2.85 ERA against Baltimore in his career. Not to worry, Orioles fans. Last night, the Orioles overcame a dominating start by Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer to win. Scherzer dominated the Orioles for most of the game Friday, allowing just five baserunners through eight innings and striking out 10 before the Orioles' ninth-inning comeback. Chris Dickerson's walk-off homer on Friday night was the Orioles' first walkoff homer when trailing with two outs since Chris Hoiles' grand slam off Seattle's Norm Charlton on May 17, 1996.

There probably have been five times in the past 20 months or so that I've written a game story about Chris Tillman's continued emergence/maturation as a pitcher. Several times I've written about whether he is - or is at least on his way to becoming -  a staff ace. Whenever I've asked scouts or baseball executives about Tillman, though, I'm told he is a No. 2 starter, maybe a No. 3 on a great team. But then you see what he did Sunday, and you have to wonder, if he can do that consistently, why he can't earn that ace label.

It has become a matter of seeming universal agreement that the Orioles have one glaring weakness that will eventually be their undoing - either at crunch time in September or early in the postseason. They lack that one go-to starting pitcher at the head of the rotation who can tip the balance in a one-game playoff or a best-of-whatever series. They don't have a Justin Verlander or a CC Sabathia or a Clayton Kershaw to strike real fear into a quality opponent. That's the rumor, and it certainly has a ring of truth after all the years the O's tried to pass off Jeremy Guthrie as the staff ace and hoped against hope that one of their bright young prospects would finally morph into the next Jim Palmer.

Duff Goldman, the rock 'n' roll chef of Charm City Cakes , wants to set the record straight about the announcement last week that "Ace of Cakes" will be ending its long run on the Food Network early next year. "People say to me, like, 'Oh, man, I hear you got canceled. I feel sorry for you.' And I'm, like, 'No, not really. I'm actually going to have time to make a lot more money,'" he says laughing. "Don't anybody feel sorry for me. " The 35-year-old rock musician, pastry chef and entrepreneur who rose to reality-TV fame almost overnight when "Ace of Cakes" debuted 41/2 years ago, says he has three new TV shows in development, and one of them involves him moving to Los Angeles in February to open a West Coast version of Charm City Cakes in June.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Before Jason Hammel could become an Opening Day starter, he had to revisit his simpler days of pitching. Before the crowds, before the expectations, before worrying about his career and where he fit in, he needed to go back to the time when the game was free of distractions, when baseball wasn't much more complicated that throwing a ball through a tire in his backyard as a kid. The 30-year-old right-hander will start the...

Chris Tillman may not have 11 wins like he did at the midway point last season, but his numbers have been far from disappointing. Including Saturday's loss to the New York Yankees, the Orioles right-hander is 7-5 with a 4.11 ERA going into the All-Star break. Last year, when he was invited to the All-Star Game, his ERA was only a few ticks lower, at 3.95. “I think it bodes well, hopefully for the rest of the season, because he seems to be getting more consistent mechanically as we go,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

HOUSTON - The Orioles' offense didn't exactly erupt against the Houston Astros on Saturday afternoon, but it was productive enough to finally scrape out a much-needed win three days into their trip to Texas. These Orioles have drawn their share of criticism for being overly aggressive at the plate, complaints only compounded by two frustrating games here in which they scored just one run each night. But this time, they allowed patience to guide them to victory. They received their third straight quality start and this time took advantage of a well-timed strong outing from struggling ace Chris Tillman in a 4-1 win over the Astros before an announced 29,609 at Minute Maid Park.

Chesapeake's Drew Spinnenweber has pitched like the ace he is all year. Friday night was no exception. The senior worked himself out of jams in the first and fifth innings and struck out 13 batters to lead the No. 4 Cougars of Anne Arundel County to a 2-0 win over Montgomery County's Sherwood (15-8) in the Class 4A state title game at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. Spinnenweber helped his own cause with a double to start off the third. It was the only inning the Cougars scored in, and the only extra base hit in the game.

Gilbert Varga made a memorable debut as Baltimore Symphony Orchestra guest conductor four years ago and impressed again in a return engagement last season. He's three for three now. The Hungarian conductor is back this weekend to lead a hearty program that includes Tchaikovsky's searing "Pathetique" Symphony and a gem of a concerto by Saint-Saens, along with the "Roman Carnival" Overture by Berlioz. On Friday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, it was clear from the first notes of the overture that it was going to be a night of tightly focused, all-out music-making.

Guess we can all stop wondering what the New York Yankees are going to do with the $25 million annual increase in their national television revenues. They spent almost that much per year on Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka , if you combine their reported seven-year, $155 million deal with the $20 million posting fee they must pay to Japan's Rakuten Golden Eagles to pry him out of his existing contract. That's just crazy, of course, but why should anyone be surprised? Not only did the Yankees get that boost from the new national TV contracts that kick in this season, but they also will save about that much if Alex Rodriguez and his lawyers don't find a federal judge to strike down his one-year Biogenesis suspension.

For the third time in less than a month, the Orioles' Sidney Ponson will be matched against one of the toughest pitchers in baseball when he faces the Toronto Blue Jays in today's series finale. He has pitched twice against Boston Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez. This time, it will be Roy Halladay, who won 22 games last year and earned a little honor called the American League Cy Young Award. It is a burden Ponson freely accepted when he signed a three-year, $22.5 million contract in January.

It wasn't that long ago that Orioles fans - and the media - viewed right-hander Jeremy Guthrie as the steal of the century, which wasn't hard to do since the century was only a few years old anyway. The Orioles claimed him off waivers in 2007 from the Cleveland Indians, who drafted him in the first round 4 1/2 years earlier, signed him to a major league contract and simply ran out of room for him on their roster. Guthrie quickly established himself in the starting rotation and made the Orioles' front office look good, for a change, and - faster than you could say, "Let's not get carried away" - he was anointed the club's No. 1 starter by default.

An Ace Hardware Express will open in early February inside the existing Harvest Fare grocery store in Fallston, at the intersection of Routes 1 and 152. This will be the first store of its kind in the state, but the precedent has already been set in other states such as Texas, where combination hardware and grocery store operations have been successful, according to press release from Harvest Fare. The location of the hardware store is expected to allow customers to avoid heavy Bel Air traffic.

Last year, Baltimore's "Ace Of Cakes" star Duff Goldman added more layers to his rising confectionary empire, founding Charm City Cakes West and Duff's Cake Mix in Los Angeles. Strategically centered near the world's most prominent movie and television studios and the city's swankiest neighborhoods, Goldman caters to L.A. 's famously extravagant (and often half-baked) personalities, who relentlessly challenge him to take his cakes to the next tier. And when the Food Network's baking alchemist is not commuting coast to coast, he serves as a culinary ambassador for the American Chef Corps, a government initiative assembled to trade culinary techniques with chefs around the world.
