CHICAGO -- Watching Nick Markakis patrol right field for the past nine seasons, Orioles fans have grown accustomed to watching him make tough defensive plays look routine. But there was no questioning the difficulty factor of the potentially game-saving catch that he made Monday night against the Chicago White Sox. Markakis took away a go-ahead homer from Conor Gillaspie in the seventh inning, making a leaping grab while crashing into the right-field fence. The Orioles offense responded to the momentum-grabbing play by opening up a close game for an 8-2 win over the White Sox in front of an announced 16,686 at U.S. Cellular Field.

Struggling first baseman Chris Davis was out of the starting lineup Monday for the second time in eight games, dealing with a sagging batting average and lingering oblique soreness through which he has been playing. Before the game, he said he wasn't excited about losing at-bats, even if it was against one of the American League's toughest left-handed pitchers in the Chicago White Sox's Chris Sale. But Davis said he accepted the decision because he understood that maybe he wasn't one of the Orioles' best nine hitters right now. Well, apparently being the club's 10th best hitter was plenty good enough.

It has become apparent during the first three months of this season that the Orioles are determined not to conform to anyone's expectations, regardless of whether those expectations are good, bad or somewhere in between. Take the past nine days, for instance. The Orioles suffered a fairly disheartening loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on June 16 and then proceeded to win the next two games at Tropicana Field. They one-upped themselves in the disheartening department Friday night with what appeared to be a devastating loss to the New York Yankees before winning the next two games and defeat the seemingly-unbeatable Masahiro Tanaka in a one-sided series finale Sunday in the Bronx.

Delmon Young hadn't started a game since June 15. So after cracking the Orioles lineup Monday, in part because of first baseman Chris Davis' recent struggles but also because of Young's prior success against Chicago White Sox starter Chris Sale, the designated hitter made the most of the opportunity. Young went 3-for-4 in the club's 6-4 win over the White Sox, grounding two singles off of Sale and later lining a double to left field. The start impressed Orioles manager Buck Showalter.

Facing a dilemma Jim Peltz Los Angeles Times Of course the concern is justified; both pitchers are young (Chris Sale of the White Sox is 23; Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals is 24) and both will be key figures in the long-term success of their clubs, so the teams want them healthy and durable. The Nationals insist they'll shut down Strasburg — who is coming off reconstructive elbow surgery — after 160 innings. He's at 1271/3 now. The Sox say they do not plan to shut down Sale, who has pitched 132 innings, but will find ways to limit his workload ahead of the postseason.

The Orioles knew their four-game series against the Chicago White Sox would come down to pitching. The White Sox's vaunted staff is a major reason why they lead the American League Central, and none of their pitchers has been better than left-hander Chris Sale. The Orioles' advance scouting reports told manager Buck Showalter what he already knew: Sale might be pitching better than anyone else in the American League. To get to Sale, the O's knew they'd have to attack him - and his deceptive all-arms-and-legs delivery - early.

In his pregame news conference Monday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the reason Chris Davis is sitting against Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale is not because Davis' average has dipped to .216 or that his slugger is mired in a 7-for-64 skid (.130). It's primarily because, Showalter said, he wanted to get right-handed hitter Delmon Young into the lineup. Young had made just four starts in June, the last coming June 15. He had just one at-bat during the past road trip, a pinch-hit homer Monday at Tampa Bay. “About 90 percent of it is Delmon Young.

The Twins have had a tough start to camp, with Francisco Liriano experiencing tendinitis in his shoulder and Joe Mauer still moving gingerly after knee surgery. Japanese newcomer Tsuyoshi Nishioka , however, has looked great, flashing a swing that resembles Mauer's more than countryman Ichiro Suzuki 's. … Like the White Sox's Chris Sale , the Reds' Aroldis Chapman will start 2011 in the bullpen, with his anticipated move into the rotation to be determined later.

The one-year transformation from a 73-inning reliever to a 204-inning starting pitcher seems astonishing. But the commitment Rangers left-hander C.J. Wilson made last winter was slightly more impressive than his vast knowledge of those who made a similar transformation. Wilson, who will start Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Friday night, is aware White Sox rookie Chris Sale earned a few saves during his two-month stint in the majors. He also recognizes that several pitchers, namely Cubs Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins, made a similar move from the bullpen more than 40 years ago. It's just one reason Wilson takes his sudden success in stride — even after winning 15 games for the Rangers this season and limiting the Rays to two hits over 61/3 innings in Game 2 of the AL Division Series.
