FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles did most of their damage offensively yesterday when they were doing the very least.Four consecutive walks by Florida Marlins left-hander Armando Almanza in the fifth inning followed leadoff singles by B. J. Surhoff and Lenny Webster and helped the Orioles to a 6-1 victory in their home exhibition opener.The game was scoreless when Almanza entered and shook up the proceedings. A balk moved Surhoff to second, and Webster's single gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead.

When Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman walked off the mound after the fourth inning Wednesday, moments after third baseman Manny Machado turned in another stunning defensive gem, the rookie said he wasn't dreaming of his potential moment in history. Gausman just wanted to pitch as long as he could and get his team the win - something he did in the Orioles' 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards. Sure, Gausman had retired 12 straight hitters to begin what was just the 15th start of his major league career and, sure, Machado and right fielder Nick Markakis had already delivered highlight-reel defensive plays that are often made in no-hitters or perfect games.

The Orioles ideally wanted to work right-hander Bud Norris back into the rotation gradually as he returned from his trip to the disabled list with a right groin strain, and a key caveat of that in the eyes of manager Buck Showalter was getting Norris two starts before the All-Star break. Tuesday's rainout at Nationals Park put a wrench in those plans, postponing Norris' first start in 2 1/2 weeks until the Orioles' return to Camden Yards on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.

BOSTON -- Wally Joyner lined a two-run double in a four-run fifth inning and Mark Langston earned his ninth victory as the California Angels avoided a four-game sweep by beating the Boston Red Sox, 4-2, last night.Langston, now 9-2 after going 10-17 last season, held the Red Sox hitless for for four innings, gave up two runs in the fifth and left after allowing six hits in seven innings. Mark Eichhorn took over to start the eighth but was replaced after Wade Boggs' two-out single by Bryan Harvey, who got the last four outs for his 16th save as the Angels ended a season-high four-game losing streak.

Centennial sophomore Brad Loveless admitted his first varsity start made him a little nervous yesterday. The short fences at Hammond and the Bears' home-run hitting lineup can give the most veteran of high school pitchers a case of jitters. But his offense treated him to a four-run first inning to ease his nerves, and the sharp-looking right-hander turned in a sound performance, leading the No. 8-ranked Eagles (2-0 overall, 2-0 league) to a key 8-5 victory over No. 12-ranked Hammond. Both teams had opened their seasons Thursday with no-hit pitching performances.

Southern of Anne Arundel pitcher Ken Misal had just 14 hours to rest his arm before he took the mound again in yesterday's continuation of the Class 2A state baseball semifinal against James M. Bennett. Given the way the Bennett hitters swung the bat in the fifth inning yesterday at Arundel High, it's possible no amount of rest would have sufficed. After managing one base runner in three innings against Misal on Tuesday, the Clippers broke loose for five runs on four hits against him in the fifth inning of yesterday's rain-forced continuation, rolling to a 5-1 win over the Bulldogs and securing a spot in Saturday's state championship game against Liberty.

Chris Davis is out of the lineup on Saturday because of his strained left oblique, which he says has gotten much better but remains sore. He had an MRI taken on Saturday and is awaiting the results. “[It feels] better than it did yesterday, still a little sore. I think a lot of it has to do with the poking and prodding,” Davis said. “Kind of testing to see how it feels. I feel better today.” Davis was removed by manager Buck Showalter before the fifth inning of Friday night's loss to the Kansas City Royals.

In the eyes of Orioles manager Buck Showalter, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen battled some tough luck in his first two starts of the season. He pitched well enough to win, his skipper said, but was victimized by seeing-eye hits that led to some early exits. After allowing nearly two hits an inning in those starts, Chen set the tone early against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night at Camden Yards and ended up turning in his best start of the year. Chen didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning and held the Rays to one run and five hits over 6 1/3 innings, leading the Orioles (6-7)

For the fourth consecutive time this season, Orioles starter Jake Arrieta couldn't make it to the sixth inning. Arrieta allowed five runs, all of them earned, against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. He was pulled from the game with the Orioles leading, 4-3, in the top of the fifth inning at Camden Yards. The Dodgers had runners on the corners and no outs when he left. Those two runners scored after T.J. McFarland entered the game, but they were credited to Arrieta, who is in line for the loss if the Orioles don't erase this one-run lead.

NEW YORK - Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has said repeatedly that he is just soaking up the playoff atmosphere, trying to have fun and not do too much. He's here to do what he can to contribute, not be a savior. That sentiment works, until you start making history. Machado led off the fifth inning Wednesday by hitting a slider from New York Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda into the visiting bullpen to give the Orioles a 2-1 lead in Game 3 of the American League Division Series.

When Jake Arrieta cruised into the fifth inning Saturday night after retiring a dozen consecutive Los Angeles Angels, the Orioles right-hander looked as if he would pick up his third quality start in four outings this young season. By the time his head stopped spinning in the fifth at Angel Stadium, however, Arrieta was in the Orioles dugout smarting from his shortest stint since July. The Angels collected five singles, three walks and five runs in the fifth to chase Arrieta on their way to a 6-3 win and a series victory against the Orioles (8-7)

With Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, the Orioles completed their third and final disastrous trip north of the border this season, something the resurgent club is hoping to quickly expunge from its collective memory. The Blue Jays, however, aren't going to forget this one easily. Not after their star slugger and potential Most Valuable Player candidate, Jose Bautista, was twice hit in the left arm with pitches -- leading to the ejections of Orioles manager Buck Showalter and reliever Alfredo Simon.

CLEVELAND -- Orioles manager Davey Johnson reiterated yesterday that he has no regrets about sticking with a 10-man pitching staff over an 11-man alignment in the American League Championship Series.The issue became magnified during Sunday night's 8-7 loss to the Cleveland Indians in Game 4, when Johnson managed as if hamstrung while Scott Erickson and his bullpen struggled early.Johnson allowed Erickson to surrender 11 hits and seven runs (six earned) in 4 2/3 troubled innings. He then left right-hander Terry Mathews to stew in the bullpen while left-hander Arthur Rhodes threw a wild pitch against right-handed hitter Marquis Grissom, a critical play on which the Indians scored twice to take a 7-5 lead in the fifth inning.

NOT HIS FAULT Before leaving the park after Tuesday night's 12-0 loss, Orioles manager Dave Trembley sought out Brian Burres and told him that he would pitch well the next night. Burres proved his manager prophetic, going 7 1/3 innings and allowing only two runs on five hits and three walks. He also struck out seven. It was a strong follow-up to his seven shutout innings against the Toronto Blue Jays in his previous outing. Burres gave up his only runs on a bases-empty homer to Hideki Matsui in the second inning and a wild pitch in the fifth inning that scored Doug Mientkiewicz from third base.
