And then the Orioles' ballgirl made a nice play, as shown in the MLB.com video above. Unfortunately for her, third base umpire Paul Emmel had signaled that the ball was fair. The play might have helped to momentarily save a run for the Orioles as the Blue Jays' Adam Lind had to stay at third base.

NEW YORK -- A key ingredient to the Orioles' formula for winning this season has been hitting home runs. They have relied on it more than any club in the major leagues. But in their 9-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday afternoon, the Orioles mounted their best offensive outing in nearly two weeks without a homer - all while ending New York's postseason hopes in front of an announced 46,056 at Yankee Stadium. The nine runs were the Orioles' highest offensive output since a 10-6 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sept.

A light rain fell at Camden Yards last night, but the tarp stayed off the field. So did the two teams. Nineteen minutes past the scheduled starting time, Orioles left-hander Matt Riley finally was allowed to throw his first pitch to Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki. And a game dragged. A sense of urgency never made it to the ballpark for the Mariners' 7-5 win over the Orioles in a game that took 3 hours, 46 minutes. Time didn't just stand still, it was ticketed for loitering. Riley and Seattle starter Gil Meche combined to throw 180 pitches.

It didn't take the Detroit Tigers long to remind the Orioles that momentum and a couple of bucks will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks. The Orioles were flying so high after Friday night's ninth-inning comeback that the air apparently got a little too thin. The big-swinging Tigers pierced the sky four times in an eight-run explosion in the top of the fourth inning that all but evened the series before late-afternoon shadows could reach the pitcher's mound. The assault was so quick and unmerciful that it rendered Tigers ace Justin Verlander almost irrelevant.

Right-hander Jason Hammel was ejected in the fourth inning Saturday when he hit the first batter he faced after allowing three consecutive home runs to the Detroit Tigers in Saturday's 10-3 loss. Hammel hit Tigers left fielder Matt Tuiasosopo in the shoulder with an 82 mph slider, and home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt immediately tossed Hammel. The pitch appeared to get away from Hammel as it left his hand and tracked toward Tuiasosopo's head. Designated hitter Victor Martinez, shortstop Jhonny Peralta and catcher Alex Avila hit three consecutive solo home runs off Hammel before Tuiasosopo's at-bat to take a 4-1 lead.

The debate whether right-hander Jason Hammel intentionally threw at Detroit Tigers left fielder Matt Tuiasosopo's head was markedly one-sided in both clubhouses following the the Orioles' ugly 10-3 loss Saturday. Both dugouts agreed that Hammel had no intent to harm Tuiasosopo in the fourth inning of Saturday's game. The umpires didn't entirely disagree, but claimed that Hammel - intentionally or not - forced them to prevent a wild game from getting out of hand. After allowing three consecutive solo home runs to the Tigers in the fourth inning, Hammel's next pitch - an 82-mph slider - sailed out of his hand and toward Tuiasosopo's head, hitting him on the left shoulder as he ducked away from the pitch.

Shortstop Yunel Escobar and second baseman Ryan Roberts hit back-to-back home runs off Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz in the fourth inning on Saturday as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Orioles, 4-1, at Charlotte Sports Park. Those were the only hits Matusz surrendered over two innings after coming on in relief of starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen, who needed just 23 pitches to complete two scoreless innings in his 2013 Grapefruit League debut. "[For my] spring debut this year, I feel pretty satisfied for today," Chen said through interpreter Tim Lin. The Orioles scored their only run of the game in the sixth inning when third baseman Manny Machado tripled off Rays pitcher Josh Lueke and outfielder Jason Pridie drove him home with a sharp single up the middle.

The Orioles knew heading into their four-game, three-day series with the New York Yankees in the Bronx that it would be draining one. Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Yankees -- the Orioles' ninth loss in 10 tries this season against their American League East nemesis -- was probably the easiest to suffer through. And it lasted 3 hours, 1 minute and featured Orioles starter Jake Arrieta's painfully issuing a career-high six walks. It was that kind of trip to New York, one that ended a terrible, 7-20 July on a dismal note.

The Orioles finally did tonight what recently looked like an impossibility for them when they took their first lead in 39 innings on Mark Reynolds' towering two-run homer over the center-field wall in the top of the fourth. A lead over the Atlanta Braves meant so much to these Orioles that in the bottom of the inning, they decided to give a tutorial on how to blow it as quickly as possible. All it took was a two-out, and two-strike hit batsman, a dropped line drive, a five-pitch walk, and one belt-high Jake Arrieta fastball that was driven into the left-field seats.

Jeremy Guthrie, whose talk with reporters after his previous start included jokes about his struggles against the Boston Red Sox and his admiration for former BYU basketball star Jimmer Fredette, spoke in measured tones with his eyes fixed on the floor. Normally verbose and engaging, Guthrie's answers after the Orioles' 6-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday night before an announced 18,007 at U.S. Cellular Field were short and indirect. "I had chances to finish people. Didn't do it," he said.
