FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Wei-Yin Chen became the first Oriole to go four innings this spring and Henry Urrutia's first homer helped contribute to a 2-2 tie with the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles took a 2-1 lead into the ninth, but reliever Troy Patton gave up a solo homer to former Orioles' farmhand Brandon Waring. Because the Twins also had a split squad against Tampa in Port Charlotte on Friday, they didn't have enough pitching to extend the game and the sides agreed to the tie. Chen pitched well, allowing three hits, one walk and one run while striking out three and throwing 60 pitches in four innings.

If you weren't certain before, Wednesday night at Camden Yards confirmed it: The American League East is officially on its ear. It was the Orioles who bided their time against a filthy starter, battered the underbelly of the opposition's bullpen and moved further ahead in the division standings. With a 5-3 comeback victory paced by eighth-inning home runs from Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones, the Orioles pulled a Yankee on the New York Yankees. “We are just playing good baseball,” said Jones, whose two-out, three-run blast landed in the Orioles' bullpen.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- At this stage of the spring, Orioles manager Mike Hargrove refuses to begin defining roles in the rotation or the bullpen. But the signs are becoming more obvious. Calvin Maduro, who is competing for the fifth starter's job while Scott Erickson recovers from arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, was allowed to go four innings yesterday in the Orioles' 2-0 loss to the Texas Rangers at Charlotte Stadium. He struggled in the first, allowing two hits and a run, and walking one, but blanked the Rangers during the last three innings.

With every start he makes for Triple-A Norfolk, Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman is making his case for a return to the Orioles rotation. Gausman, who last pitched Friday, is 1-2 with a 2.93 ERA in his past three starts for the Tides, and a few more starts like he has made recently will likely increase the clamor for a follow-up to his May 14 start against the Detroit Tigers. In his first start back in Triple-A on May 20, Gausman cruised through four innings against Charlotte before he ran into trouble in the fifth.

Late Orioles game: Last nights game between the Orioles and Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix ended too late to be included in this edition. A complete report can be found in later editions or on the Internet at http://www.sunspot.net. PHOENIX - If Jason Johnson's start in Cleveland one week ago today looked like a major step forward for the Orioles, Tuesday night's performance in a 6-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks was another step back. After holding the Indians to one run on three hits over eight innings, Johnson gave up four runs in four innings against the Diamondbacks.

HOUSTON - Searching for someone who could cool the red-hot Houston Astros" offense last night, Orioles manager Mike Hargrove tried three different pitchers in the first four innings. Omar Daal couldn't do it. Travis Driskill couldn't, either. Their ineffectiveness, coupled with Hargrove's itchy trigger finger, made for another troubled evening at Minute Maid Park, as the Astros pounded the Orioles, 11-1, completing a three-game sweep. So after dropping the first three games on this road trip, the Orioles will begin a three-game series in St. Louis tonight with a bullpen already on the brink of exhaustion.

NEW YORK - Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen thought he had pretty good stuff on Sunday afternoon, but his career-high five walks over four innings in the club's 7-3 win over the Yankees would indicate otherwise. After the outing, Chen said through interpreter Tim Lin that he believed his strike zone was getting pinched by home plate umpire Jeff Kellogg, but he didn't use that as an excuse. “This is a part of baseball,” Chen said through Lin. “Sometimes when I throw right in the middle of home plate, the umpire didn't pick it up. Sometimes, the strike zone was a little small today.” Chen has experienced some control issues of late.

Highlights and lowlights from the Orioles' 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. UP -- Jose Mercedes: Doesn't have a roster spot right now but might have the fourth spot in the rotation on April 3. DOWN -- Infield madness: Jiu-jitsu, karate, tae kwan do, playing shortstop at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. They're all forms of self-defense. DOWN -- Team speed: Ground balls are useless with this lineup. UP -- Tim Worrell: Leading battle with Al Reyes for final bullpen spot.

The Orioles offense received the wake-up call it needed in the fourth inning of Wednesday afternoon's series finale when Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander threw a 94-mph fastball behind designated hitter Nelson Cruz. The pitch appeared to be retribution for Monday's series opener, when Orioles right-hander Bud Norris hit Torii Hunter in the ribs in the eighth inning after allowing a two-run homer to Ian Kinsler, prompting both dugouts and bullpens to empty. Both benches were warned Wednesday after Verlander nearly hit Cruz, and the pitch injected some life into a sleepy Orioles team that had been scoreless for 12 straight innings.

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Miguel Gonzalez escaped a fourth-inning jam -- and several hard comebackers again -- to turn in a strong performance in the Orioles' 4-3 loss in 10 innings to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon. Gonzalez, making his fourth appearance of the spring and second since being knocked out of the game by a liner to his left shin, allowed just one run in four innings Sunday against a lineup filled with Blue Jays starters. “I'm actually pretty happy about this outing,” said Gonzalez, who has now allowed four runs in 9 1/3 innings this spring.

As dominating as Kevin Gausman was in his first inning of relief Tuesday night, and as well as he's pitched against the Yankees overall, the Orioles' rookie right-hander faced uncharted territory in the eighth inning against the heart of New York's batting order. In his first career eighth-inning hold opportunity, Gausman allowed three runs - including Alfonso Soriano's go-ahead two-run homer - as the Yankees rallied for four runs and a 7-5 win over the Orioles. With leads against fellow playoff contenders more precious than ever, the Orioles' inability to close out the Yankees was damaging in more ways than one. With this loss before an announced 25,897 at Camden Yards, the Orioles (77-67)

NEW YORK -- The Orioles knew rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman could be a factor down the stretch this season, and in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Yankees Gausman injected a sense of calm to a game that was slipping away. With the Orioles down 3-0 after four innings, Gausman entered for starter Wei-Yin Chen and tossed two scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three. The Orioles rewarded Gausman with a seven-run seventh inning, which gave the 22-year-old his second major league win. It was a test for Gausman (2-3)

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz, competing for the fifth starter's spot, took a step backward Sunday, allowing five runs in four innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Matusz was staked an 8-0 lead in the first inning, but allowed two runs in the first on an Andrew McCutchen homer and two more in the third on RBIs by Gaby Sanchez and Neil Walker. Overall, he gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out two. He threw 67 pitches, 46 for strikes. “Just went out there, never found a rhythm and didn't pitch well,” said Matusz, who now has a 4.26 ERA in six spring games (four starts)
