The Orioles have decided to non-tender Jo-Jo Reyes, allowing him to become a free agent. Reyes was snagged off the waiver wire from the Toronto Blue Jays at midseason and posted a 6.16 ERA for the Orioles in nine games (five starts). With the acquisition of Dana Eveland last week, and the Orioles' interest in other starting pitchers in the market, Reyes, 27, became expendable. The Orioles also have non-tendered Luke Scott, though they hope to bring him back at a salary lesser than the $6.4 million he made in 2011.

Adrian Beltre's one-out, ninth-inning single off Jim Johnson scored Franklin Gutierrez as the Seattle Mariners won the rubber match of the series, 3-2, before an announced 18,650 at Safeco Field. Base-running blunders and a lack of timely hitting hurt the Orioles, who wasted a solid start by Brad Bergesen. Box score, PG 4.

THAT WAS FAST Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis was just 7-for-30 lifetime heading into Friday's game against Toronto ace Roy Halladay, so it figured that his hitting streak could be in jeopardy. Markakis wasted no time disproving that theory. In the first inning, Markakis went down and drove Halladay's breaking ball into the right-field seats, his third homer of the year extending his hitting streak to a career-high-tying 17 games. NO RETRIBUTION The Orioles hit three batters, though the Blue Jays didn't retaliate.
