David Ortiz smashed a homer to right on Monday that was part of Boston's three-run sixth to tie the score at 5-5. It has a little more significance than that, though. The blast traveled past the flag court and landed on Eutaw Street - the 62nd time that has happened in Camden Yards' 20-year history and 37th time by an opponent. It was Ortiz's second shot there, the first coming on Sept. 9, 2003 against Damian Moss. What's most interesting is that there have been five homers hit onto Eutaw (four by an opponent; one by Chris Davis)

Nobody asked me, but… A judge who orders an electric shock to silence a criminal defendant who refuses to shut up during a court proceeding has relinquished his eligibility for retirement duty on the bench. This is alleged to have happened when Charles County Circuit Judge Robert C. Nalley, who hit mandatory retirement a year ago, told a deputy sheriff to zap a chatterbox defendant with the "stun cuff" he was wearing at the time. (A few years ago, the same judge admitted to a Southern Maryland newspaper that he had deflated a tire of a car parked near the courthouse in La Plata.

Chris Davis' second-inning solo homer on Friday night was record-setting. It was the 66th homer to land onto Eutaw Street - behind the right-field flag court - in Camden Yards history. And it was also the ninth this year - the most Eutaw Street homers hit in any one season. The previous record was eight, set in 2008. Davis has hit three there this year. He homered again in the fourth and again in the sixth  - neither onto Eutaw Street - giving him 23 on the season. That surpasses his career-high of 21 set in 2009.

Forno, a great-looking new restaurant and wine bar located across the street from the Hippodrome Theatre , opened as quietly as it could in late February just as the blockbuster musical "The Book of Mormon" pulled into town. Emina Dukic, who co-owns Forno with her husband, Bryan Noto, has said she wants Forno to be not only an amenity for the theater crowd but for residents of an emerging west-side neighborhood in and around the sprawling campus of the University of Maryland.

Blasting a home run onto Eutaw Street, just shy of the Warehouse past right field at Camden Yards, is a big deal, akin to a splash landing in McCovey Cove at AT&T Park. An asphalt landing on Eutaw Street earns players a commemorative plaque along the street with the player's name, team and the date and distance of the home run. In the ballpark's 21-year history, 68 players have accomplished this feat. Only one has had his plaque feature a misspelling. And it's a two-time Orioles All-Star, no less.

When New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson nailed a home run over the right field flag court in the fifth inning Wednesday, his hit made history. It was the 10th home run this season to land on Eutaw Street, a Camden Yards single-season record. Nine homers were hit onto Eutaw Street last year. Granderson's homer traveled 422 feet and was the 76th to land on Eutaw Street in park history and the 46th by a visiting player. It was Granderson's second time doing it.

Eutaw Street homers are always a fun little novelty at Camden Yards. This year, they are almost the norm. On Friday, two homers - Asdrubal Cabrera's in the third and Matt Wieters' in the sixth - landed on the street beyond the right-field scoreboard and flag court. It was just the second time two have reached Eutaw in one game in the stadium's history. Rafael Palmeiro did it twice on April 11, 1997 against the Texas Rangers. So there was a little history on Eutaw Street on Friday and there will be more the next time one lands there this year.

There's a lot of history behind Baltimore's newest Irish restaurant. Maggie Moore's Irish Pub & Restaurant is set to open next week in the old Baltimore Equitable Society Building on Eutaw Street. Owner John Moore says the building was constructed in 1847 as the Eutaw Savings Bank and became headquarters in 1887 for the Equitable Society, a fire insurance company. He says he and partner Bill Carr have spent the last year renovating the 9,000-square-foot place, trying to keep as much of the building's original elements in it as they could.

Rafael Palmeiro wasn't seeing the ball well against Texas Rangers starter John Burkett last night. And because of it, he wasn't seeing the desired results.Palmeiro, the Orioles first baseman, hit into a double play in his first at-bat. He struck out to lead off the third inning, and stranded two runners in the fourth by grounding out.It could have been a lost night, but wound up being something totally different after Burkett was knocked out in the sixth.Facing left-hander Eric Gunderson to open the seventh, Palmeiro jumped on the first pitch and sent it an estimated 411 feet to right, the 13th home run hit onto Eutaw Street.

Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus has homered in consecutive games. The one Saturday night against Tommy Hunter put the game into extra innings. And his blast in the first inning Sunday also had some significance. Rasmus' homer against Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez reached Eutaw Street, beyond the right-field flag court. It's the 78th to land there in Camden Yards history and the first this season. Of those 78 homers, 47 have been hit by opponents and four by Blue Jays.

It doesn't look like the Sports Illustrated cover jinx will take hold in Baltimore - at least not yet. With a swing on the first pitch he saw leading off the fifth inning Wednesday night against the Rays, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis continued to etch his name in the team's history book. Davis' blast onto Eutaw Street was the 46th of the season, tying Jim Gentile for the third most home runs in a season by an Oriole. It was the fifth time in his career Davis has homered onto Eutaw Street and the second time this year.

There's not a whole lot of mystery to this version of the Orioles. Pitch well enough and hope for the home run - because no one in the sport is better at hitting baseballs a long way. In an 11-8 slugfest victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night, the Orioles' most consistent starter, Chris Tillman, struggled. But he was picked up by an offense that hit three more homers, including Nate McLouth's first career grand slam and Chris Davis' major league leading 40th of the season.

With a third-inning blast off Seattle right-hander Aaron Harang onto Eutaw Street, first baseman Chris Davis continued to cement his place in the Orioles history books. Davis became just the fifth Oriole to hit 40 home runs in a season, joining Brady Anderson (50, 1996), Frank Robinson (49, 1966), Jim Gentile (46, 1961) and Rafael Palmeiro (43, 1998). The slugger continued his monster season with his 101st RBI, which gave the Orioles a 5-3 lead over the Mariners. The 40 home runs also tie a personal mark for Davis, as he hit 40 home runs in 2008 between Double-A, Triple-A and the majors with Texas.

IS IT A good idea to spend millions in taxpayers' money to turn Baltimore's old Hippodrome Theater into a 2,200-seat cultural center?Members of the House Appropriations Committee, touring the abandoned Eutaw Street vaudeville house recently, voiced reservations. They worry that the projected $35 million in renovation costs might go much higher. They also wonder whether the rundown neighborhood would scare away potential theater-goers.Their concerns are justified. Yet legislators ought to give free rein to their imagination and examine the Hippodrome project in a wider context.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter had confidence that Nolan Reimold's bat would eventually come around. Even though Reimold's batting average dipped below .200 just two days ago as he struggled to find a comfort zone splitting time between designated hitter and left field, Showalter remained patient. And it was patience at the plate that led Reimold to the game-winning hit in the Orioles' 7-5 interleague win Saturday afternoon in Game 1 of their day-night doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
