The Orioles optioned outfielder and designated hitter Henry Urrutia to Triple-A Norfolk following Friday night's 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Manager Buck Showalter said after the game the Orioles will probably bring up a bullpen arm because of right-hander Francisco Rodriguez's strained right groin. Urrutia had a .269/.269/.308 slash line and two RBIs in 21 games. The Cuban defector had only one extra-base hit - a triple in his sixth game at Kansas City - and no walks to go with nine strikeouts.

Somewhere on a lonely road in Kansas, about halfway through his 2,989.5-mile bicycle trek across the United States, Christoph Strasser, a 30-year-old former bike messenger, made a decision. He wouldn't simply win the Race Across America, the famously grueling coast-to-coast ultra-marathon cycling competition now in its 32nd year. He would break its long-standing record for speed. When he crossed the finish line Wednesday at Annapolis City Dock, grimacing and holding high the red-and-white flag of his native Austria, Strasser achieved both goals.
