The Orioles, as the old saying goes, let the game bounce through their legs on Wednesday, losing, 5-4, to the Pirates after rookie second baseman Blake Davis got beat five hole on a hard ground ball and gave away the game-winning runs. The Orioles dropped the three-game set, the fourth consecutive series they have lost. But this one stung a little bit more, and it wasn’t because of the Baltimore-Pittsburgh civic rivalry.

In his major league debut Wednesday, Orioles infielder Blake Davis played second base for the first time this year and made a key error that allowed the Pittsburgh Pirates to score the eventual game-winner. Orioles manager Buck Showalter made sure Davis won't have too much time to dwell on that mistake. Davis started again at second base Friday against the Cincinnati Reds — the club's first game since Wednesday's loss in Pittsburgh. "It's nice," said Davis, a shortstop by trade who has played just 20 games at second base in a six-season pro career before Friday.

While the Orioles remain interested in re-signing pitcher Mark Hendrickson, a deal will not get done during the team's exclusive negotiating window. The Orioles have until the end of today before other teams are allowed to make contract offers to Hendrickson, who went 6-5 with a 4.37 ERA and was one of manager Dave Trembley's most trusted bullpen options in his first season with the club. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail spoke this week to Hendrickson's agent, Joe Urbon, and said there is mutual interest in finalizing a deal, but both sides will wait until free agency begins Friday before intensifying the talks.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - It's unclear whether there's any real cause for alarm, but the Orioles are taking no chances with pitcher Rich Hill and his sore left elbow. Though X-rays on the elbow revealed no structural problem, the left-hander was sent for a magnetic resonance imaging before yesterday's game to rule out any possibility that his arm soreness is the result of a significant injury. "He's getting the whole kit and caboodle," manager Dave Trembley said. The news was pretty good.

At some point this spring, Justin Turner will jog out to second base, Blake Davis will head to shortstop and Scott Moore will go to third. For all three, it will serve as another opportunity to impress Oriole officials, and another reminder that they're still playing together a dozen years later. Turner, Davis and Moore were teammates when they were all 12 or 13-years old on the Orange County (Calif.) Cardinals Connie Mack Little League team. They're in spring training with the Orioles and marveling at how that came to be. "I think the stars aligned for all of us to end up here in the same organization all these years later," Turner said.

The Orioles got some rare good news on the injury front Friday as starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was diagnosed with a muscle strain in his back after an MRI and a consultation with team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens. "This was about as good as one could have hoped," said Andy MacPhail, the Orioles' president of baseball operations. "It's good news. He's still in line potentially, no sure thing, to make his next start. So we will just see how it responds in the next two days. " Guthrie, who left Thursday's outing after five innings because of back soreness, is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

With Blake Davis' decisive error in the fifth inning Wednesday, the Orioles had their defining play on a highly disappointing road trip and an easy scapegoat for another avoidable loss. However, pinning it all on Davis' gaffe, which brought home the tying and winning runs in a 5-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates in front of an announced 19,418 at PNC Park, neglects the rest of the Orioles' problems. Right now, this is a team that doesn't get consistent starting pitching, has only three or four reliable relievers, doesn't get enough hits with runners in scoring position, plays awful defense at the most inopportune times and is so thin in terms of depth that Davis was making his big league debut at a position he hasn't played all season.
