FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Cal Ripken took grounders at third base during batting practice yesterday, pronounced himself fit and was a late addition to the Orioles' starting lineup.Ripken, who had missed the past two games with a strained left groin muscle, said there was a little soreness, but nothing to restrict his movement."If I thought it would be risky, I wouldn't try it," he said before the Orioles and New York Mets played to a 3-3 tie in 10 innings. "I don't want sit down and not get the chance to get some innings in at third."

As the temperature rises every summer in Baltimore, so does the number of balls that carry out of Camden Yards. Hits similar to ones that landed at the warning track two weeks ago are now finding their way into the seats. And the Orioles lineup is built to take full advantage of such a summer swoon. The Orioles led the major leagues with 46 home runs in June, and they continued their power surge into July. They hit three homers, including Nelson Cruz's 26th of the season on his 34th birthday, in an 8-3 victory over the struggling Texas Rangers on Tuesday night in front of an announced 19,150.

NEW YORK  - One of the first things Orioles manager Buck Showalter said to reporters during his pregame news conference Sunday afternoon was about right-hander Dylan Bundy 's outing for short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Saturday. "Bundy was good last night, huh?" Showalter said. Indeed he was. Bundy, 21, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out nine in five scoreless innings against Brooklyn. Recovering from elbow ligament surgery last June, he has now allowed one run while walking one and striking out 15 batters in 10 innings in his first two rehab starts for the IronBirds.

NEW YORK - The hamstring felt good enough for Roger Clemens to dance off the mound in the seventh inning, his right hand clenched as if ready to deliver a staggering blow. That's what the Arizona Diamondbacks had been hoping to do. Clemens made sure the New York Yankees were standing last night because his right leg remained strong. He struck out nine over seven innings, outlasting Arizona's Brian Anderson, and the Yankees regained their footing in the World Series with a 2-1 victory in Game 3. Another loss would have put them a game away from being swept.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It took an outstanding effort from a starting pitcher winless for more than four seasons, but the Orioles last night gained consecutive wins for the first time since June as Calvin Maduro stiffed the Kansas City Royals with a perfect five innings in a 7-3 win before 17,266 at Kauffman Stadium. Maduro earned his first major-league win since May 9, 1997 while with the Philadelphia Phillies by covering six innings. The Orioles backed him with a 10-hit performance featuring two triples, a three-run third inning and a far different look from the team that entered the series in a 6-25 spiral.

Dylan Bundy was the first Saturday night to say he still has work to do before he legitimately can be considered an option for the Orioles' major league club. Making his second rehabilitation start for short-season Single-A Aberdeen, the club's top prospect, working his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery a year ago, was dominant Saturday during a 3-1 loss in 11 innings. He threw five scoreless innings and allowed just two hits against Brooklyn, recording nine strikeouts, including five of the first six batters he faced.

Right-hander Dylan Bundy pitched five innings and allowed one run for short-season Single-A Aberdeen against Hudson Valley on Sunday in his first competitive game since 2012. Bundy, who was the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2011, underwent Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last June. He had been limited to simulated games and extended spring training sessions before Sunday, but he's recovering about two weeks ahead of schedule and feels like he could pitch for the Orioles later this year.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter's decision to pitch right-hander Miguel Gonzalez in today's series finale against Tampa Bay appears to have paid off. Gonzalez held the Rays scoreless for five innings this afternoon, yielding just three hits while recording six strikeouts and walking three batters. After the scoreless outing today, Gonzalez has allowed three earned runs over 11 innings in his past two starts. Gonzalez was scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rays, but after it was rained out, Showalter pushed Gonzalez to today.

It was special because it was Opening Day, but the Orioles' tense victory over the defending world champion Red Sox did not represent a dramatic departure from the way these two AL East rivals have been mixing it up since the end of the 2011 season. The Orioles played tight defense and emerged on top because of a dramatic seventh-inning home run off Boston ace Jon Lester. The Red Sox contested every pitch and made O's starter Chris Tillman use everything up in the first five innings.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Chris Tillman turned in the longest outing of the spring for an Orioles pitcher - topping We-Yin Chen's performance on Friday - and the Orioles beat a makeshift Yankees lineup, 2-1. Tillman, who is considered the likely favorite to start Opening Day for the Orioles, threw five scoreless innings before giving up a solo homer to Francisco Arcia to begin the sixth. It was the only run and just the third hit allowed by Tillman, who struck out five and walked two. “I felt good.

Kevin Gausman 's second start didn't go as planned. The 22-year-old right-hander, who recalled from Double-A last week, was pulled after four innings, trailing 7-3 to the Washington Nationals. He gave up seven runs on eight hits, including three homers. Combined with his debut on Thursday in Toronto, in which he gave up four earned runs in five innings, Gausman's ERA sits at 11.00.  On Tuesday, he permitted a three-run homer to Adam LaRoche in the first inning. He then retired seven of eight before walking LaRoche to start the fourth.

On the field: Nerio Rodriguez gained a win, but a save would have been more appropriate. With starter Rick Krivda unable to convert a 9-0 lead into his fifth win, Rodriguez held the game together for 3 1/3 innings and was rewarded with his first major-league win. Rodriguez became the 14th Oriole pitcher to gain a win this season. It was only the bullpen's second win in the last 23 games.In the dugout: Davey Johnson gave a sneak preview of his playoff roster against right-handed pitching. Eric Davis played right field, Brady Anderson center and Chris Hoiles went behind the plate.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- In his final spring outing, Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel, who will likely be the team's Opening Day starter, threw five innings against the Tampa Bay Rays' Single-A minor leaguers on the back fields of Ed Smith Stadium. Hammel allowed three runs -- all earned -- and three hits, striking out six and walking three. Unofficially, he threw 76 pitches, 47 strikes. He initially struggled through a 23-pitch first inning that was ended after just two outs, but he overwhelmed hitters with his fastball-changeup-curveball combo as the outing progressed.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel threw five shutout innings in a minor league rehab assignment start at advanced Class-A Frederick on Saturday night.
