Class-A Frederick doesn't have major league veterans leading the offense like Norfolk, or nearly an entire lineup of players batting over .300 like Bowie, but the offense came alive this week without many standout contributors. The Keys scored 19 runs combined in wins Tuesday and Wednesday against Potomac, more than their previous five games combined, and broke a streak of nine straight games of not exceeding four runs. Outfielder Brenden Webb, infielder Creede Simpson, and infielder Jerome Pena each homered in the two-game explosion, but most of the Keys offense has been driven by outfielders Glynn Davis and Lucas Herbst.

Francis Scott Key is so closely identified with Fort McHenry that the South Baltimore landmark is considered the go-to place to learn how the 15-starred American flag that flew after the fort's bombardment 200 years ago inspired him to write the poem that became the national anthem. But those wishing to pay their final respects to the lawyer-turned-poet could also head 50 miles west to Frederick, where Key is buried in a sprawling cemetery that runs along U.S. 40 where it shares the roadway with busy Interstate 70. "Key always wanted to be buried in the shadow of the Catoctin Mountains," said Ron Pearcey, the superintendent of Mount Olivet Cemetery.

It would have been enough for the announced 5,021 at Harry Grove Stadium on Sunday for Frederick's 4-1 win over Wilmington to see the Keys top a prospect-laden Blue Rocks team. But then the game ended, and things got really exciting. The Keys arranged for a helicopter to fly over left field and drop 100 pounds of candy onto the outfield grass, capping off a diverse weekend of promotions for the Orioles' High-A affiliate. Friday was "Girls Night Out," which featured a diamond dig in the infield after the game.

After a tough first half, the Frederick Keys have received lineup and bullpen reinforcements that could improve the team's fortunes in the Carolina League. Frederick received infielder Michael Almanzar on a rehab assignment, plus first baseman Trey Mancini, outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, and reliever Jimmy Yacabonis from Low Class-A Delmarva in the past week, and though the team is 1-5 in the second half so far and those four players haven't done much, it represents a big step for both the ballclub and those players.

Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been named to the Carolina League All-Star Game despite pitching in just three games for High-A Frederick. He will be joined by two Keys teammates: Ty Kelly, who will start at third base, and Jeremy Nowak, who was named as a reserve outfielder. The 19-year-old Bundy is 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three games after a promotion from Low-A Delmarva. For the Keys, Bundy has allowed five runs on 13 hits and four walks in 15 innings pitched. Last year's first-round pick of the Orioles (fourth overall)

When he was at Sunset Elementary School in Pasadena, Glynn Davis was the fastest runner in his class. He recalls that the school held a field day every year, and he was never defeated in the 100-yard dash. Davis, 22, is using that speed as a center fielder for the Frederick Keys, the Orioles' Single-A Advanced farm team in the Carolina League. "As far as I can remember, I have been a fast guy," said Davis, a graduate of Northeast High School. "That is what I have modeled my game after.

TORONTO -- Expect a capacity crowd at Harry Grove Stadium in Frederick when Orioles third baseman Manny Machado begins his minor-league rehab assignment with High-A Frederick on Friday night. Tickets for Friday night's game are going fast. About 70 percent of reserved seating was sold out as of Thursday morning, and there is a limited number of general admission seats still available. The Keys are expecting a standing-room crowd for the game, so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early.

FREDERICK -- The luxury of having success throughout a club's farm system is that no team at any level gets shortchanged the next season.Take the Single-A Frederick Keys. Six prominent members of Delmarva's South Atlantic League champions -- Ryan Minor, Calvin Pickering and pitchers Ryan Kohlmeier, Scott Eibey, Gabe Molina and Maximo Heredia -- bypassed the Keys and jumped directly to Double-A Bowie this year.With those players, the Keys might have been a Carolina League powerhouse. Even without them, Frederick doesn't figure to do too badly.

For 10 weeks, the Frederick Keys were Dylan Bundy's stewards. The Orioles' High-A affiliate was charged with bringing along the 19-year-old's arm and delivering him to Double-A Bowie in better shape than he arrived, a transaction that is expected to be made with all stipulations met before Game 1 of the Baysox's doubleheader Tuesday. The Orioles invested more in Bundy than they have in any other pitcher, and the right-hander came to Frederick in late May after posting utterly goofy numbers during his stint in Low-A Delmarva (30 innings, no earned runs, five hits, and 40 strikeouts in eight starts)

Only a few steps are taken through the main gate at Harry Grove Stadium when the first reminder greets its visitors. The standings from the Carolina League are posted on a concourse wall, in print large enough to be seen from the parking lot. To find the Frederick Keys in the first half, it was necessary to scan all the way to the bottom. Logic says this should be a depressing place for the Orioles' high Single-A affiliate to play its home games. If not for the cicadas earlier this summer, the sound of crickets chirping would have seemed a more appropriate soundtrack.

Dylan Bundy might be the future of the Orioles' rotation, but the future is now for the High-A Frederick Keys, who have pulled out all the stops for the 2011 first-round pick's Carolina League debut Saturday night against the Salem Red Sox. The team opened the gates to Harry Grove Stadium early after a sparsely attended concert by the Milkshakes, a local Grammy-nominated children's group, and with about 45 minutes remaining before the first pitch,...

1 Spoiling for a fight: The spoiler thing didn't go so well against the Rays, but now the Orioles head to Boston to give it another try. The first of three against the Red Sox is tonight (7 on MASN2). 2 Let's play two: They're not being paid, so it shouldn't matter that college football players are working on Labor Day. ESPN has a doubleheader starting at 4 p.m. - Fresno State at Rutgers and Tennessee at UCLA. 3 Movin' on up: If the White Sox's Jim Thome (left) hits a homer tonight against the Indians, it would be No. 537, breaking a tie with Mickey Mantle and taking sole possession of 14th place on the all-time home run list.
