If you can't beat him, sign him.That evidently was the Orioles' thinking when they added outfielder Dwight Evans for one year. Evans, 39, was their leading tormentor among active players -- and a living nightmare for their bullpen ace, Gregg Olson."

Orioles manager Buck Showalter, back in Baltimore Monday evening to be honored as the Baltimore Sun Marylander of the Year, told a group of local business leaders that former Orioles closer Gregg Olson is planning on joining the team to help with spring training instruction. Olson, who was the Orioles closer from 1989 to 1993, remains the franchise's all-time saves leader with 160. The list of former Orioles who have helped with spring training instruction this spring include catcher Chris Hoiles, outfielder Al Bumbry and outfielder B.J. Surhoff.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The expansion Arizona Diamondbacks are the eighth organization that former Orioles pitcher Gregg Olson has played for since he left Baltimore, but this just might be the right place and the right time for him to re-establish himself as a solid reliever.He has played in both leagues, and a few others along the way, all the while trying to recover the mechanics and arm strength that made him one of the top closers in the game from 1989 to 1993. That effort has been largely unsuccessful, but this spring was different.

SEATTLE - When Orioles rookie phenom Manny Machado lined a RBI double in the seventh inning Sunday against the Oakland Athletics, he ignited an important rally for the Orioles, again demonstrating his value to the bottom third of the team's lineup. His next at-bat in the eighth, his 131st since his surprise Aug. 9 call-up from Double-A Bowie, represented something a little more disappointing for Orioles fans. It pretty much guaranteed that the 20-year-old third baseman will not become the club's first American League Rookie of the Year since pitcher Gregg Olson in 1989.

Professional golfer Lee Janzen has been an Orioles fan ever since he lived in Westminster from 1970 through 1976. Though he moved to Florida at the age of 12, Janzen has stayed in touch with his beloved Birds.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson saved his 37th game of the season Sunday aftenoon in the Orioles' 7-5 series-clinching win over the Tigers at Comerica Park with another stress-free 1-2-3 ninth inning. The save tied him with former Orioles closer Gregg Olson for second-most saves in a single-season in club history. The first-time All-Star is having a career year in his first season as the Orioles' closer. What makes Johnson's season more spectacular is his success on the road, where he's converted 23 of 24 save opportunities, including 13 straight away from Camden Yards.

In an all-around brutal weekend for the Orioles, not even reliever Will Ohman was exempt from the team's struggles. Ohman, who hadn't given up a run in his first 25 outings this season -- which was the longest active streak in the majors -- served up two solo homers in the eighth inning of the Orioles' 6-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, which completed a three-game sweep. "I wasn't going Roger Maris and having hair fall out or anything," said Ohman, who had gone 15 2/3 innings without giving up a run. "It was nice while it lasted.

Mel Montgomery, Old Mill's veteran baseball coach, told his son, Zach Montgomery, the team's senior second baseman, before last night's Class 4A state final: "Let's go out in a blaze of glory." They did, as Nick Couzantino was practically unhittable and was well-supported by his hard-hitting teammates as top-ranked Old Mill defeated No. 7 Perry Hall, 7-0, for the Class 4A championship at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmans. The Buchholz brothers, sophomore Alex and senior Matt, each had two hits for the winners, with the latter hitting a double and driving in one run. Alex had two RBIs, including one in a crucial three-run third off losing pitcher Jarrett Smith (6-2)
