The Orioles' final homestand of the regular season was supposed to be one of celebration. All signs pointed to the club's clinching its first American League East title since 1997 at Camden Yards, and Friday's split doubleheader against the New York Yankees gave the Orioles a chance to take two more sizable steps toward the postseason. Instead, their clubhouse was rocked Friday morning by the news that infielder Chris Davis, one of the team's most popular and recognizable players, had been handed a 25-game suspension for a second failed drug test for an amphetamine.

Overshadowed by the pregame news that Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games for violating MLB's drug policy is that shortstop J.J. Hardy, who has been nursing nagging lower back problems, is back in the starting lineup for Game 1 of today's doubleheader against the Yankees. Hardy left the club Monday in Boston and received a cortisone shot back in Baltimore. Hardy said he also received additional treatment on Thursday's off day, including a Toradol injection, and he swung at 80 percent.

After last night's rainout, the Orioles will play a doubleheader today against the Rangers, with the first game beginning at 4:05 p.m. Tommy Hunter will start in tonight's Game 2, recalled from Triple-A Norfolk, meaning the Orioles will likely DL outfielder Endy Chavez (intercostal strain) between the games tonight. He would be eligible to return from the DL on May 24. Infielder Steve Tolleson is here, wearing No. 6. He was recalled yesterday -- left-hander Zach Phillips was sent down -- to help with depth.

Brian Roberts , who hasn't played since Monday because of headaches, was held out of both ends of Friday's doubleheader. The Orioles second baseman has missed four straight games and has played in just 59 this season because of various injuries and ailments, including a large chunk of the season because of a herniated disk in his back. "[He's] about the same, not the improvement we had hoped to see," manager Buck Showalter said about Roberts. "A day-to-day thing with him. " Roberts ran before batting practice under the watchful eye of head athletic trainer Richie Bancells , but he wasn't at full strength.

The Orioles take on the New York Yankees for a day-night doubleheader today in what should be the kickoff for clinch week -- assuming the Orioles can continue the momentum they built in a three-game sweep over the Boston Red Sox. I thought Thursday's day off would be a good time to do a question-and-answer session, so I asked Twitter followers to help out. Here were some of the questions -- and my replies. Hopefully, it will answer the primary questions that have been burning in your mind about the Orioles.

The Orioles realize that their chase of the New York Yankees for the American League East title has little room for error, especially as their regular season whittles down to just eight games. Their opportunities to overcome the Yankees - who have withstood the surging Orioles - shrink by the day. But Monday offered a rare chance for the Orioles to gain a half-game on New York if they could have swept their single-admission doubleheader against the Toronto Blue Jays. Backed by a strong spot start from rookie right-hander Steve Johnson and four hits from Adam Jones, the Orioles won the opening game 4-1, but they couldn't take advantage of numerous scoring opportunities in the nightcap and were dealt a frustrating loss, 9-5. The Orioles (88-66)

The Orioles activated left-hander Troy Patton between the two games of the doubleheader Thursday after he completed a 25-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall use. The Orioles' first game Thursday was their 25th of the season, meaning Patton had to be activated before the nightcap. To make room for Patton on the roster, the club outrighted right-hander Josh Stinson, who cleared waivers, to Triple-A Norfolk. Stinson had a 7.15 ERA in 11 1/3 innings over seven appearances with the Orioles this year.

The Orioles' game against the New York Yankees that was postponed Tuesday because of rain will be made up as part of a split-admission doubleheader Sept. 12 at 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. There was a possibility that the game would be made up during Thursday's common day off between the two teams, but they agreed to reschedule the game for the Yankees' final trip to Camden Yards next month. Tickets for Tuesday's postponed game will be good for the 1:05 p.m. game Sept. 12. Fans unable to attend the makeup game can exchange their tickets for any remaining home game on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

BOSTON - Midway through the nightcap of their twin bill against the Red Sox on Saturday, the Orioles were in danger of dropping the doubleheader and losing their hold on first place in the American League East. But after a 7-4 win over the Red Sox in which the Orioles came from behind to score five unanswered runs and shut down Boston with 5 1/3 strong innings from the bullpen, the music blasted inside the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park. Earning a split of their day-night doubleheader was, in a way, a victory.

BOSTON - Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez stifled the Red Sox for eight innings in the first game of a split doubleheader at Fenway Park, delivering arguably his best start of the season, but the Orioles still suffered a sobering, 3-2, walk-off loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Seemingly rested and recovered from their early-morning arrival in Boston on Friday after their scheduled afternoon game was postponed until Saturday because of rain, the Orioles received a boost from Gonzalez, but mustered just five hits on the afternoon.

BOSTON - Fenway Park was emptied, cleaned and reopened in a matter of about an hour and a half for the nightcap of today's Orioles doubleheader in Boston. In between, right-hander Bud Norris threw a two-inning simulated game to test his right groin. Norris pitched to Orioles coaches Wayne Kirby and Einar Diaz as well as vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson. Between innings, Norris walked off the field and into the dugout to simulate a game inning. He is a candidate to fill the Orioles' starting spot Wednesday against the Washington Nationals at Camden Yards.

BOSTON - As seen during this week's homestand at Camden Yards, the Orioles typically do all they can to avoid doubleheaders - and the obstacles they bring - but playing one Saturday in Boston could prove beneficial to the Orioles in more ways than one. The Orioles' scheduled Fourth of July game today against the Red Sox at Fenway Park was postponed because of inclement weather nearly three hours before its scheduled start. The game will be made up as the first of a split-admission doubleheader at 1:05 p.m. Saturday.

For the second straight day, rain postponed a game between the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates at Camden Yards. The two clubs will play the two-game interleague series in one day Thursday, with a single-admission doubleheader scheduled to begin at 4:05 p.m. It marks the first time in 10 years that rain forced back-to-back postponements for the Orioles. The club's games against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park were rained out April 13 and 14, 2004. And it hasn't happened at Camden Yards since two games between the Orioles and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays were postponed April 17 and 18, 2000.

What a weird day yesterday was. With all the nation watching, the United States lost and we rejoiced. Not much else happened, as you'll find here in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's local sports headlines. - The Orioles were off, but there was plenty of off-day fun. Manny Machado raised money for youth baseball with his bowling fundraiser at Mustang Alley last night. It looked kind of fun . - In legitimate baseball news, Nolan Reimold is finally healthy again and must be activated Sunday and added to a crowded Orioles outfield situation.

In a battle of minor league pitchers promoted for the afternoon game of Friday's day-night doubleheader, the Tampa Bay Rays' Alex Colome bested the Orioles' Kevin Gausman. And it wasn't close. Colome (1-0), who has spent much of the season with Triple-A Durham, flummoxed the Orioles after a shaky first inning as the Rays cruised to a 5-2 win before an announced 15,614 at Camden Yards. In his first major league start of the year, the right-hander allowed just two hits and exited with a four-run lead in the sixth.
