TORONTO -- The Orioles have tried to make it known to Garrett Olson that he's not rehearsing for a spot in next year's rotation. They want him to relax, take the ball every five days and be himself without the burden of massive expectations. But make no mistake: Club officials are watching the organization's top pitching prospect closely, looking to see how Olson assimilates himself into the major leagues. Can he throw all his pitches for strikes? Can he make in-game adjustments? How will he handle adversity?

DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK The Yankees trailed 3-0 and were two strikes away from being shutout in consecutive games for the first time since 1999. But Shelley Duncan cranked Jamie Walker's 0-1 changeup into the left-field seats, the three-run shot tying the game and sending the capacity Yankee Stadium crowd into delirium. However, it got significantly quieter in the 10th, as the Orioles scored three times off Mariano Rivera to beat the Yankees in a series for the fourth time this year. BEDARD KEEPS ROLLING Orioles ace Erik Bedard has now gone two full months without losing a game.

Garrett Olson, Orioles pitcher Is it hard not knowing when and where you're going to make your next start? It's fun being here, but at the same time, I'm sticking to my routine more than anything right now, whether they need me for a start or out of the bullpen. In a way, it's a little frustrating because you don't know exactly what your role is.

For Nick Markakis to win last night's game, he had to rely on his memory as much as his swing. In typical fashion, both were impeccable. White Sox@Orioles Today, 1:35 p.m., Ch. 13, MASN2, 105.7 FM Starters: Jose Contreras (5-10, 5.19) vs. Garrett Olson (0-0, 4.15)

Pitches -- His fastball is average. He'll throw 87 to 92 [mph]. He pitches at about 88, 89. He has a slider/slurve in-between thing that he throws for strikes and a changeup when he needs it, but he doesn't use it very often. Ability -- He has average life [movement] on his pitches. He's a quick worker and he throws strikes, no matter what he did [Wednesday against the Chicago White Sox]. He threw strikes in the minors. Ceiling -- He translates to a solid bullpen guy or a fourth or fifth starter in the majors.

CHICAGO -- It was a moment where sentiment could have easily prevailed over judgment. Garrett Olson had overcome nerves and 10 base runners just to get to this point, where he was two outs away from being eligible for a victory in his major league debut. But Orioles interim manager Dave Trembley walked to the mound, took the ball from the 23-year-old pitcher and offered a reassuring word. Trembley, who managed 2,782 games in the minor leagues before getting his shot in the majors, appreciates more than anybody else the opportunity to succeed at the game's highest level.

CHICAGO -- No matter how many pitches Daniel Cabrera threw in the first three innings, his outing still was salvageable when Tadahito Iguchi came to the plate with a man on third and two outs in the fourth inning last night. Cabrera had performed an admirable job of damage control through the first three innings, and all he needed to do to get out of another jam was make a quality pitch to Iguchi. He couldn't, walking him and bringing up the one guy in the Chicago White Sox lineup Oriole pitchers want to avoid.
