The emotions were already running high for Orioles left-hander Troy Patton on Wednesday in Boston, as he was pitching in his first big league game in more than three years. But there was something else extraordinary that guaranteed it would be a night he'll never forget: He pitched in front of his 34-year-old half-sister, whom he hadn't met before this week. It's an incredible story, and one that was made possible by the social media site Facebook. Patton's father had been married previously.

For those worried about Orioles rookie left-hander Brian Matusz and focused on his poor win-loss record and mid-4.00 ERA, there is one statistic that you may want to consider. In eight starts this season against the three heavyweights of the American League East, Matusz has a 2.90 ERA and has allowed just 41 hits in 492/3 innings. That includes three solid starts against the Boston Red Sox, whom Matusz completely shut down Sunday, pitching seven shutout innings and tying a career high with eight strikeouts in the Orioles' much-needed 6-1 victory in front of an announced 37,742 at Fenway Park.

Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel had a tough decision to make after Marco Scutaro's double in the eighth inning put the go-ahead run on second base with two outs. Starter Brad Bergesen had retired 10 straight batters before Scutaro's double and he was working on one of his best starts of an otherwise frustrating season. Samuel knew that if he brought in left-hander Will Ohman to face the left-handed hitting Eric Patterson, Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona would likely go to his bench and summon a right-handed hitter.

— On the 17th day, they rested. On the 18th day, the Orioles lost again. With their brutal stretch of 16 consecutive games to start the season officially behind them, the Orioles were hoping Thursday's first off day of the season would translate into a better outcome Friday at Fenway Park. Instead, it was more of the same, with the Orioles squandering another solid starting pitching performance while failing to take advantage of myriad offensive opportunities in a 4-3 loss to the Red Sox, a game that they easily could have won. The gut-puncher also had a new twist: Orioles relievers walked five batters in two innings, including Jim Johnson's free pass to swing-happy Adrian Beltre in the eighth inning with the bases loaded that forced in the winning run. "We didn't throw a whole lot of strikes, and you obviously can't defend against the walks," Johnson said.

The Flyers and Bruins took their first look at Fenway Park - hockey-style - less than one month before the clubs meet in the NHL's Winter Classic. The atmosphere was light as players and personnel from both teams were given a guided tour Sunday of the uncompleted rink, the locker room and other facilities. Fenway Park, the 97-year-old home of baseball's Boston Red Sox, is in the early stages of being converted to a hockey rink for the New Year's Day game between the Bruins and Flyers.

BOSTON - -The sizable gap between the two teams in proven major league talent is a perfectly acceptable explanation for the Boston Red Sox's recent dominance over the Orioles. But there are more subtle differences as well that fall into the realm of one team finding a way to win and the other consistently finding ways to lose. Victor Martinez came off the bench and delivered a three-run double off Danys Baez to break a seventh-inning tie and push the Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over the Orioles in front of an announced 37,712 Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

A Marylander who helped shape Oriole Park at Camden Yards and later guided the preservation and expansion of Boston's Fenway Park is looking for a new challenge. Roland Park resident Janet Marie Smith stepped down this summer as senior vice president in charge of planning and development for the Boston Red Sox, a position she has held for the past eight years. Smith said she left the Red Sox last month because her work in Boston was winding down and, after commuting between Baltimore and New England on a weekly basis for years, she is looking for planning opportunities closer to home.

BOSTON - -If David Ortiz were to apply his own standards, he could not play baseball for a year. Five months after saying that steroid users should be banned for a full year, Ortiz was snared in baseball's long-running scandal. Ortiz and Manny Ramirez, two integral players in the Boston Red Sox's championship teams of 2004 and '07, were among the 104 players who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003, according to a New York Times report. After the Red Sox's 8-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday at Fenway Park - Ortiz hit a game-changing home run - he said he called the players association and confirmed that the report was true.

BOSTON - - Major League Baseball rules stipulate that, barring rain or another unusual occurrence, a team must get the final three outs of the ninth inning for a game to be official. Yet, there was a sense of finality Saturday night when David Ortiz's three-run homer off Jeremy Guthrie landed in the center-field bleachers. And the first inning hadn't even ended yet. Jon Lester was on the mound for the Boston Red Sox, and the Orioles were at Fenway Park, making the end result all too predictable.
