The sweet smell of celebration -- an odorous combination of champagne and beer -- still lingered inside the home clubhouse of Camden Yards one day after the Orioles wrapped up the American League East title. Backed by a two-homer game from Steve Pearce, there was no hangover Wednesday night as the Orioles swept the second-place Toronto Blue Jays with a 6-1 victory in front of an announced 37,537 giving the club its 10th win in the last 11 games. “That's what we do,” Pearce said of returning strong the day after clinching the division.

The Orioles ran their way out of a couple of potential big innings Wednesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays against a pitcher making his major league debut by being a little too bold. Fortunately for Brad Bergesen, the Orioles continued to experience the kind of moments that have become the norm under new manager Buck Showalter, making the kind of plays that point to a much brighter baseball future in Baltimore. Sparked by some dazzling defensive plays, including a pair by shortstop Cesar Izturis and another by rightfielder Nick Markakis, Bergesen pitched a complete game and the Orioles, after not beating the Blue Jays in their first 12 meetings this season, completed a three-game sweep with a 3-1 victory at Camden Yards.

BOSTON -- Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen once fell four outs away from throwing a perfect game while he was pitching in Japan, so it's not like Wednesday's brief flirtation with baseball history in the Orioles' 10-6 win at Fenway Park was unchartered territory. “It comes across your mind, but still a perfect game is very difficult to do,” Chen said through an interpreter after his perfect-game attempt was broken up with one out in the sixth. “I just tried to concentrate on each at-bat.

Orioles right-hander Scott Feldman strolled to the mound for the ninth inning Friday night with 101 pitches under his belt and a relatively short leash as he saw two relievers warming up in the home bullpen. The 30-year-old pitcher didn't waste any time, needing just five pitches in the final inning to complete his first career shutout in a 4-0 win over a free-swinging Chicago White Sox team before an announced 26,253 at Camden Yards. “He was in command all night,” catcher Matt Wieters said.

McDonogh midfielder Brinton Valis set the tone in the first minute of the Eagles' playoff game against St. Mary's on Friday. He made a sharp fake to get past a defender and then took a direct path to goal, neatly placing a shot up high for the game's opening score. No. 3 McDonogh made sure to stay focused throughout, always staying a step ahead of the No. 4 Saints to come away with an 11-6 win in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference quarterfinals. Valis and Bobby Austin each scored three times and Jackson Morrill added two goals and three assists as the Eagles improved to 15-4.

South Carroll seven-year coach Debbie Barnes said there wasn't one time last season when the Cavaliers played a complete game.The result was a frustrating 0-18 season. All she's asking for this season is some consistency and with it should come wins."We were in a lot of games last year, but never played a complete game," Barnes said."We'd play four or five strong innings only to see it all erased by making some bad mistakes in one costly inning."Barnes believes the year's worth of experience along with an injection of younger players up from last year's "B" squad could help turn things around.

When Sidney Ponson arrived at spring training five months ago, his manager noticed his weight, his sluggish velocity and his inability to get over a blister. With last night's performance against the New York Mets, Ponson provided nothing less than another endorsement for the Orioles' future as he produced a complete-game 4-1 win before an announced crowd of 45,450 at Camden Yards.Ponson (9-6) had help. Albert Belle blew open a tight game with a two-run home run in the fourth inning, his 20th, and the Orioles got a first-inning run without a hit against Al Leiter (8-7)

Scott Erickson gave the Orioles' bullpen a much-needed rest last night, dominating the Milwaukee Brewers in an 8-2 complete-game victory."It was a godsend," pitching coach Pat Dobson said. "The bullpen has been working a lot of the ballgames lately. It was nice to get them another day's rest."It was the Orioles' third complete game, tying them for the American League lead. Erickson had seven complete games in his 16 Orioles starts last year.Last night he allowed only four hits and two runs.

From a logistical standpoint, Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez hasn't had a particularly stable season. He has dealt with one stint on the disabled list, pitched out of the bullpen once and twice was demoted to the minor leagues as part of the club's continual roster tweaks. If Gonzalez keeps pitching like he did Wednesday in a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, though, he'll ultimately end up with just one destination next month: The postseason. That's his ultimate goal after an elevator of a season.

The Orioles would like to have started their final month of the regular season with a better showing instead of missing a chance at a sweep and losing, 6-4, to the inferior Minnesota Twins on Monday afternoon. This club, though, has been about the big picture all season, and that's not going to stop now that September has arrived. The first-place Orioles (79-57) went 3-1 in consecutive four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays and the Twins this past week and hold an 8 1/2-game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East.

Life has been so charmed for the Orioles in the past few days that on Thursday, they chased one of baseball's best pitchers with a weather report. They followed that up with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers without hitting one long ball - the Orioles' only homerless victory since April 26 - to secure a four-game sweep at Camden Yards for the first time since 2008. The offense was paced by a career-best, four-hit effort from a guy they released in April, allowing the Orioles to improve to 4-0 while playing one hitter short during Manny Machado's five-game suspension.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Because manager Buck Showalter was in Texas on Saturday to witness his daughter's graduation from law school, bench coach John Russell took over the team for a day. Russell said he spoke with Showalter at length Friday night about the lineup and game plan, and he then talked to him on the phone Saturday afternoon after Showalter's plane landed in Texas. “It's not a whole lot different of a day for me, just preparing and making sure everything is ready,” said Russell, who has filled in for Showalter when he has been ejected or briefly suspended.

North Harford's Nic Hammer told his teammates before Friday's 3A North regional final that only four of the school's previous teams had ever won a regional title, and - if they wanted to be remembered - they needed to be the fifth. Mission accomplished. Hammer pitched a complete game, scattering six hits, as the No. 6 Hawks (21-2) scored four runs in the top of the first and defeated No. 11 Franklin, 8-1. Hammer aided his cause offensively by hitting the game's lone home run over the left field fence in the sixth inning.

The Orioles offense received the wake-up call it needed in the fourth inning of Wednesday afternoon's series finale when Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander threw a 94-mph fastball behind designated hitter Nelson Cruz. The pitch appeared to be retribution for Monday's series opener, when Orioles right-hander Bud Norris hit Torii Hunter in the ribs in the eighth inning after allowing a two-run homer to Ian Kinsler, prompting both dugouts and bullpens to empty. Both benches were warned Wednesday after Verlander nearly hit Cruz, and the pitch injected some life into a sleepy Orioles team that had been scoreless for 12 straight innings.

He pitched one of his best games of the year last night and still came up a loser.Milacki equaled a career high with 10 strikeouts and pitched his second complete game of the year, but Toronto Blue Jays starter Todd Stottlemyre dominated the Orioles again on the way to a 3-1 victory at SkyDome.Stottlemyre has faced the Orioles three times this year and given up three earned runs in 22 innings (1.23 ERA)
