The solitary orange banner waved over the left field wall at old Memorial Stadium for years. “HERE” is all it said in blocky black lettering. No other words were necessary. Everyone knew what it meant: here's where Frank hit it out. Wednesday marks the 47th anniversary of that historic home run, when Orioles outfielder and future Hall of Famer Frank Robinson became the only player to hit a baseball completely out of the old ballpark on 33rd Street during a game. It happened on May 8, 1966, in the second game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, when Robinson hit a mammoth two-run shot off Indians starter Luis Tiant in the first inning.

I was doing a radio segment on 105.7 The Fan on Thursday night when host Terry Ford asked me an interesting question. And since we encourage recycling here at Connolly's, I thought I'd drop it on you. I was asked which Oriole did I think would improve in the second half. I was allowed only one answer. And there are several candidates. Chris Davis is an obvious one. It'd be really surprising if he hit under .200 all season. But he also has 15 homers and 48 RBIs. So I'm not picking him. You'd have to think Ubaldo Jimenez should be better than the 3-8 record, 4.52 ERA and league-leading 60 walks issued in 99 2/3 innings pitched in the first half.

Former Oriole outfielder Felix Pie is officially leaving the organization for another American League club. Pie has agreed to terms on a minor league deal and spring invite with the Cleveland Indians, according to an industry source. The 26-year-old Pie could make $1 million in salary and performance bonuses in the majors. He also would be able to opt out of the contract if he doesn't make the Indians' Opening Day roster. Pie spent three seasons with the Orioles, batting .259 with 14 homers in 268 games.

Orioles left-hander T.J. McFarland joked after the Orioles' 7-1 victory that he didn't know for certain he would be starting Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers until he was told to go into the clubhouse and talk to reporters late Monday night. The Orioles waited to announce that McFarland would get the spot start until they made sure that they didn't need him to pitch in relief Monday. Now McFarland, 25, will get his first start of the year and the second of his major league career.

Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez has a $50 million contract, a 2-6 record and the knowledge that his recent starts just won't cut it. And the 9-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians, his former team, on Saturday at Camden Yards was the most frustrating of them all. “They found the holes,” Jimenez said in Spanish on Sunday. “A ground ball up the middle, a bloop to left field, an infield hit. They hit me five times, and of those, the only hard one was the fifth, Yan Gomes' line drive.” A walk and Gomes' hit put two runners on with nobody out in the fifth inning Saturday.

The Orioles aren't going to make a big deal of winning one game in late May against a non-division opponent, but the club's 4-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon had the feel of one they just didn't want - or couldn't afford - to lose. A defeat would have sunk the Orioles (25-23) back to .500 and marked their 10th loss in 14 games. It also would have sent them on a 10-game road trip having lost three of four games at home to the Indians (24-27). “Very important,” first baseman Steve Pearce said about the nature of Sunday's win. “It was a great team win, and we'll carry that momentum into Milwaukee.” Perhaps it was more of a relief to the announced 37,649 who showed up at Camden Yards on a perfect, 77-degree day to see the Orioles finally win on a Sunday.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis knew that, eventually, the runs would come. Over the past four days, the Orioles had scored their share of runs, but the club's recent offensive surge had not translated into wins. Davis, who struggled to find his power stroke in the season's first weeks before briefly landing on the disabled list with an oblique injury, seems to have found his groove - as have his teammates. And Friday night, they had a victory to show for it. Davis drove in four runs, including his seventh homer of the season, a two-run blast in the fifth inning that gave the Orioles the lead in an eventual 8-4 win before an announced 39,602 on Fireworks Night at Camden Yards.

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - It has been more than a decade since Brady Anderson had to wonder about his place in the lineup. He was such a regular fixture in the Orioles' outfield that it is he - not consecutive-games king Cal Ripken - who holds the club record for games played at Oriole Park. So this must be a strange time. The Cleveland Indians are preparing for another run at the American League Central title and Anderson finds himself in an unfamiliar uniform and an uncomfortable situation, forced to audition for a significant role in their 2002 playoff bid. It is not a sure thing.

The first time Bobby Ojeda saw Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital, it wasn't at all what he expected. The mix of old and new buildings on the wooded hillside looked imposing to him, like something out of a Hollywood movie. It could have been a fancy private school, or a small college.But they don't send you to private school when you're a major league baseball pitcher struggling to get over seeing two teammates killed in a boating accident. Mr. Ojeda came to Sheppard Pratt in July 1993 because he had survived, but still wasn't living.

I'd like to go to church this morning, Pentecost and all that, but there are all those people circling the house, pounding feebly at the door, and pleading for the answers to yesterday's quiz on word nerdiness. Here you are: the original ten sentences, the identification of the problems they present, and a note on scoring your nerdity at the end.    1. A rapidly developing drought and unseasonably hot weather throughout Maryland has stolen the early promise of this year's wet spring, parching lawns and gardens and raising fears among farmers of a return to the disastrously dry years of the mid-1980s.     Subject-verb agreement: drought and weather constitute a compound subject, so the verb has to be have stolen .    2. Although boys do get lice, they tend to prefer females.

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez stumbled through a two-run first inning Sunday, but he recovered to allow just two more hits through the next five frames in the Orioles' 4-2 win over the Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards. “The first inning was a little frustrating for him,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He was good. He didn't break.” Despite tying a season-high with four walks, Gonzalez recorded his third straight quality start and has allowed three or fewer runs in nine of his 10 starts this season.

Orioles left fielder David Lough isn't aggravated with his struggles at the plate, even if Orioles manager Buck Showalter is frustrated for him. Lough is batting .169 this year and is 5-for-36 in his past 19 games. He wasn't in the starting lineup against the Cleveland Indians on Friday or Saturday, with Nelson Cruz playing left field and Delmon Young filling the designated hitter spot. Lough is starting in left field and batting eighth Sunday. "I got kind of frustrated for" Lough, Showalter said Friday.

Ten starts into his Orioles career, the organization is still trying to figure out which Ubaldo Jimenez they signed. At times, Jimenez has been dominating, as he was during a three-start stretch this month. But when he's struggled, it hasn't been pretty. Such was the case on Saturday afternoon, when Jimenez labored through his shortest start of the season against his former team as the Orioles were on the short side of a 9-0 drubbing - their most lopsided loss of the season --  at the hands of the Cleveland Indians in front of an announced 36,873 at Camden Yards.

It's late May, but Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez pitched like it was early April. Jimenez labored through four innings Saturday against the Cleveland Indians, his shortest outing of the year, matching season-worst marks with five runs allowed and five walks. “It looks like I'm just missing a little bit of the strike zone,” said Jimenez, who finished with 99 pitches, 55 of them strikes. “I'm not that far away, but I'm missing and falling behind the count and getting myself into trouble.
