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 - What does it look like when 86 years of pain and suffering are over and an entire Nation pauses to celebrate? It looks so good that Fenway fans were on their feet yesterday, 45 minutes before the first home-park pitch of 2005. They were standing on chairs and tables, lined up along the aisles and catwalks all around the old ballpark. They craned their necks and ducked under elbows to take a snapshot of history. They hugged and laughed in giddy anticipation. They wrapped their arms around their friends' and families' shoulders.

BOSTON  -  Without the advantage of being in their own facility on Saturday at Fenway Park, the Orioles needed to ensure that right-hander Bud Norris could test his strained right groin as scheduled. So with the Orioles playing a split doubleheader, the club found a way to borrow the Fenway Park field so Norris could throw a simulated game. They traded their pregame afternoon batting practice session for field access between games, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Norris pitched two simulated innings after the first game of the doubleheader, which began at 1:05 p.m. and ended just before 4 p.m. He 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.

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- The sound is what they seem to remember most vividly. It resonates across the years, 25 of them now, enough of them to suggest the sound will never diminish, not in this case, not in the tragic case of Tony C."Just the noise," said former California Angels manager Bill Rigney, anguish creasing his face. "I just remember the noise."Their facial muscles contort when they are asked to describe the sound it created, as though they are hearing it for the first time, or wishing they were hearing it for the last.

Dwight Evans has one regret about this weekend's series between the Orioles and Red Sox at Fenway Park.No, he's not going to say he's angry with Boston management for snubbing him after 18 productive years. Nor does he bemoan the fate that has kept him from participating with a team that has a chance to win the world championship he says the New England fans deserve.Very few players in the history of baseball have ever played as long in one city as Evans did in Boston, and then returned wearing a gray uniform.

In Al Jackson's estimation, the long-held belief that Fenway Park is ruinous to lefthanded pitchers is a myth."I've seen lefthanders be successful there," the Orioles' pitching coach said. "They're usually guys who throw sinkerballs and make the batters hit ground balls."Jeff Ballard is one of those. The Orioles lefthander, 1-1 lifetime in Fenway, will oppose Red Sox lefty Matt Young tonight (7:35, Ch. 2) in the opener of a four-game series in Boston."I'm supposed to be a ground ball pitcher, and that's what I'll try to do," Ballard said.

BOSTON - The Orioles knew they did their jobs last night. They could hear it in the groans. On a cool evening at Fenway Park, an angry crowd let the Boston Red Sox have it on several occasions, and these weren't just the sounds of one poorly played game. They were the sounds of a city seeing its team lose steam in the American League playoff chase. Rodrigo Lopez tossed eight strong innings to win his fifth consecutive start, and the Orioles battered Red Sox starter Rolando Arrojo for a 9-2 victory that broke their three-game losing streak.

BOSTON -- The 70th All-Star Game should offer something for everyone. The traditionalists will love the 1912 aura of historic Fenway Park. New-age fans will surely enjoy watching the pumped-up, high-tech stars of the coming millennium showcase their skills in baseball's version of the Time Tunnel.The midsummer classic has come back to Boston to celebrate the game's storied past before one of the oldest ballparks in the major leagues falls victim to baseball's search for a better economic future.

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.

There is still a winter chill in the air, and the American League East race has already gotten hot and heavy. The Orioles and Boston Red Sox are embroiled in an intense four-game series at Fenway Park that is building toward Monday's emotional crescendo. The Tampa Bay Rays spent Friday and Saturday pounding some of the starch out of the first-place New York Yankees before losing in 12 innings Sunday for a split in their four-game series. By most accounts, it's going to be like this all season.

BOSTON - Orioles rookie third baseman Jonathan Schoop is still trying to feel his way through his first real opportunity to contribute as a major leaguer. The organization's top position player prospect, Schoop has had his share of growing pains under a particularly bright spotlight as he's filled in at for injured Gold Glover Manny Machado. The 22-year-old didn't experience much pain on Friday. In the Orioles' first trip to Fenway Park this season, Schoop helped rally the Orioles to an 8-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox with his first career four-hit game in front of an announced crowd of 36,408.

BOSTON -- Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman has had more success against the Boston Red Sox than any other American League East opponent, so it's no wonder why manager Buck Showalter pushed him back to pitch tonight in the first game of this weekend's four-game series at Fenway Park. Tuesday's rainout provided the opportunity. Tillman, who celebrated his 26th birthday Tuesday, is 4-2 with a 2.67 ERA in 12 career starts against the Red Sox, including an Opening Day no-decision against Boston on March 31. He is 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA in five career starts at Fenway Park.

BOSTON -- The Orioles have needed a little extra to win seven of their eight games at Fenway Park so far. Four games have gone into extra innings, including Saturday's afternoon-into-evening, 12-inning, 9-6 victory over the Red Sox. If the Orioles can win Sunday, they will earn their second sweep in Boston this season. They would also tie their club record for most wins at Fenway in a season (eight), set in both 1960 and 1966. They've won a total of nine of 10 dating back to last September. They've already won all three series here this season.

The Pesky Pole got the best of the Orioles on Sunday afternoon. In the Orioles' 2-1 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park, the 100-year-old ballpark's fabled right-field corner played a huge part in two key plays. With the tying run on first in the top of the ninth inning, pinch hitter Jim Thome laced a line drive down the right-field line — it is just 302 feet down the line — that one-hopped over the short fence for a ground-rule double. "It's part of playing in different ballparks," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

BOSTON -- Imagine the new Camden Yards ballpark as Colonial Williamsburg -- a loving restoration, a tribute to what was, an attempt to create a history that breathes. What's missing are grit and dirt and tears and life and death.In baseball, you can still get real life. You can still get at the essence of the game. You can come to Fenway Park, age 71, for living history.Sure, they've tried to touch up the old place. They've even got sky boxes stacked awkwardly atop the creaking structure, which is like parking a Maserati in front of the Roman Colosseum.

BOSTON -- Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel threw a brief side session from halfway up the mound before Friday's series opener against the Boston Red Sox, the first time he threw downward since coming out of his Sept. 11 start with pain in his surgically repaired right knee. Before throwing in the bullpen, Hammel said he his balky right knee has shown progress, but that he didn't want to throw off a full mound until he was certain the knee was pain free. “It's starting to feel really good, but I'm not going to get on a mound and throw another pitch until it feels normal,” Hammel said.

I am a Red Sox fan (I now live in New England), by way of having been a Braves fan (they were the team of the deep South in the '70s) , by way of having been a Brooklyn Dodgers fan as a very young child (their enemy was the Yankees, and they hired Jackie Robinson). I am a devoted Sox fan, and watch almost every Red Sox game on TV, unless I am at Fenway. It always seems weird to me to see a ballpark half full when I am used to Fenway full for every game. OK, there were lean times for theO'sin the past, but how can your city not come out to support the team this year?
