Right-hander Josh Stinson yielded four homers to the Toronto Blue Jays in his Orioles debut Wednesday afternoon, the most allowed by an Orioles starter in nearly 11 months. Stinson, who was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk before Wednesday's game to fill the empty starting rotation spot, was making his second career major league start, and his first since Oct. 3. It was the first time an Orioles pitcher has allowed four homers in a game since Jason Hammel allowed four last May 30. Stinson has mostly been used as a reliever - he recorded a 0.96 ERA in six appearances, five in relief, last season with the Brewers and was 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in 10 spring appearances with Milwaukee - but was 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA in two starts at Triple-A Norfolk this season.

John L. Walz, a former typesetter who later ran a Carroll County farm that produced eggs, died of cancer Sunday at his son's Mount Airy home. He was 82. John Louis Walz was born and raised in Baltimore and was a 1948 graduate of City College. A pitcher, he played for the Blue Rocks of Wilmington, Del., in the late 1940s and later with the Phillies of Terre Haute, Ind., until an arm injury ended his career, said his wife of 61 years, the former Dorothy "Dot" Ragulski. After serving in the Army for several years during the Korean War, he worked during the 1950s and 1960s as a typesetter for the Baltimore Typesetting and Composition Co. He later was a co-founder with his father of the Walz Egg Ranch in Mount Airy, where they raised chickens and furnished eggs to commercial and residential customers.

FREDERICK -- The weekend had the makings of a mini version of the 1982 Orioles season.The trailing team (Orioles and Frederick Keys) playing at home before overflow crowds and needing a sweep to win its division. The visiting team (Milwaukee Brewers and Wilmington Blue Rocks, respectively) needing one victory to clinch.Twelve years ago, the Orioles won three straight games and took the Brewers to the final day of the season before relinquishing the American League East title on Earl Weaver's first retirement day.Last night before a record 10,056 fans at Harry Grove Stadium, the Keys couldn't similarly prolong the drama.

Riffs from an electric guitar seemed to spill out from the dense stone and mortar of a 179-year-old stable-turned-church in Columbia last weekend, saturating the warm autumn night. Smooth vocals and the rhythmic throbbing of a bass and drums were the only other outward signs that 2nd Saturday Cafe's new season was under way, marking the start of the venue's 10th year as a showcase for rock, jazz and blues artists. Inside, an all-volunteer crew had transformed the sanctuary of Kittamaqundi Community Church into an intimate club for 140 guests, just as they have 50 other times over the past decade.

As usual, my playlist is a wildly eclectic mix of sounds. The new releases I'm listening to this week range from evocative '50s blues to ferocious post-grunge rock. In between, there's quirky urban pop and dense, progressive hip-hop. Percy Mayfield, Specialty Profiles: Let's start with the oldie of the bunch by one of the most undervalued songsmiths in pop. Two years ago, the Concord Music Group acquired the catalog of Specialty, Art Rupe's legendary '50s label that released pioneering rock 'n' roll records by Little Richard and Lloyd Price and early gospel tracks by the Soul Stirrers featuring a young Sam Cooke.

Eric Clapton's days of radical innovation may be over, but he has compensated with a stylishness that keeps him on top. Ever since he swept the Grammys in 1993 for his 7 million-selling "Unplugged" album - which contained his heartbreaking tribute to his deceased son, "Tears in Heaven" - Clapton has brought a new elegance to the adult-contemporary format and to his beloved blues. Although sensitivity isn't always fashionable in these days of Eminem and Fred Durst, Clapton has become the consummate English gentleman.
