Having missed a chance to move into second place and gain ground on the American League East-leading New York Yankees, the Orioles will try to salvage a 2-1 edge in the final game of a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox tonight at Camden Yards.Boston's 5-2 win behind right-hander Aaron Sele last night enabled the Red Sox to even the series, remain in second place and move to within a game of the Yankees, who were belted for the second straight day in Minnesota. The Orioles remained three games off the lead and dropped to two games behind the Red Sox.The first two games of the abbreviated homestand, which ends tonight, continued an offensive slump for the Orioles, who have managed only 13 runs in the last five games, four of them losses.

Former Orioles third baseman Doug DeCinces was indicted Wednesday, along with three friends, by a federal grand jury in California on securities fraud charges, for allegedly cashing in on inside information about the acquisition of an Orange County medical company, prosecutors said. The criminal indictment is the latest fallout related to the acquisition, which previously resulted in DeCinces and Hall of Fame former Oriole Eddie Murray — who was not named in Wednesday's indictment — paying civil settlements to the Securities and Exchange Commission last year and in August, respectively.

Doug DeCinces has managed some difficult life transitions.As DeCinces recalls, it was tougher succeeding Brooks Robinson as Orioles third baseman, a feat described as an "impossible task" in The Ballplayers, an encyclopedia of baseball biographies. Inevitably there were comparisons; inevitably DeCinces could not win."I went through some tough times replacing Brooks Robinson," says DeCinces, 43, who lives in Newport Beach, Calif.

Eddie Murray , the former Orioles Hall of Famer, has been linked to an investigation by federal authorities in a wide-ranging insider trading case that already has ensnared teammate Doug DeCinces, according to a Reuters report. Investigators have been trying to determine whether Murray traded on inside information that Abbott Laboratories was about to announce a deal to acquire Advanced Medical Optics for $2.8 billion in 2009, according to the Reuters report. He has not been charged with a crime.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Rafael Palmeiro extended his hitting streak to 18 games by doubling off the Metrodome's trash-bag-like wall in right field in the fourth inning of yesterday's 5-2 loss to Minnesota.The streak is the longest in the majors this season, eclipsing the 17-game streaks of Oakland's Stan Javier and St. Louis' Gregg Jefferies. Toronto's John Olerud had the longest streak last season, when he hit safely in 26 consecutive games.Palmeiro's streak also is the longest by an Orioles hitter since Joe Orsulak hit in 21 consecutive games in August 1991.

In his second at-bat, he hit a screaming line drive to right for a sacrifice fly. In his third, he hit a monstrous shot to right-center, a ball that was going, going . . .Caught.Caught by a leaping, fully extended Otis Nixon, 10 feet in the air, body far above the wall, glove halfway to the Inner Harbor.Goodbye, hitting streak?No way.In his final at-bat, Rafael Palmeiro made it 21 straight games with a broken-bat bloop to shallow center field that he stretched into a double.If ever a game demonstrated the absurd luck necessary to maintain a long hitting streak, last night's was it.Only in baseball: Palmeiro crushed the ball twice to no avail, but his worst contact of the night preserved the streak.

A thank-you from DeCincesAs I read the quotes of fellow ballplayers and notable Baltimoreans expressing their warm feelings about Memorial Stadium, I, too, became emotionally choked up. Feelings that cannot be expressed in words or catchy one-liners engulfed my mind and heart.Yes, it was a retiring of a stadium that brought us all together for its fond farewell, but it was the memories of the people within the structure that I believe contained its success and its nostalgic emotions that swallowed us all up. The Orioles tradition was on display, front and center, for all those to appreciate.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- For most of this season, Jolting Joe Orsulak and the Orioles followed the same pattern."We haven't had a lot of consistency," said the outfielder, who has generally been just that since midway through 1988, his first season with the club. "We've been up and down."Mostly the latter.But suddenly, despite their ineptness against Milwaukee, the Orioles are taking on a look of respectability. They have come up with a set of five starters who, at the very least, can challenge hitters.

As the Delmarva Shorebirds close in on a division title, they know they can depend on their "rock" behind the plate, Tim DeCinces."He's a guy you put in the lineup every day and don't worry about," said manager Tommy Shields. "Tim has filled the three hole [in the batting order] nicely, driven in runs and caught well. He's been a real steadying influence on this team."The son of former Oriole Doug DeCinces -- one of the early mainstays of the players' union movement -- DeCinces, 23, comes by his leadership qualities naturally.

In case you're wondering, John Oates will not jeopardize Joe Orsulak's career-high 21-game hitting streak by using him as a pinch hitter or any other role that might restrict his number of at-bats.That means Orsulak's attempt to match the Orioles' club record will have to wait until tomorrow night. The hot-hitting outfielder will not be in the lineup when the Orioles open a three-game series against Toronto tonight because the Blue Jays are nTC starting lefthander Jimmy Key.Compared to other more notable hitting streaks in baseball history, Orsulak's might not appear to be a big deal, but it is to Oates.
