OAKLAND, Calif. -- Orioles first base coach Al Bumbry has vivid memories about batting slumps. If you make your living as a hitter, it's the kind of thing you never forget.One hitless day, no big deal. Could be you just had a bad day. Could be the guy throwing the ball had a good day."But if I went 0-for-4 two days in a row," Bumbry said, "then I started to worry."Then the internal examination begins, and the hitter begins to wonder about his stance, how he's holding his hands, if he's not concentrating enough on the pitcher, if he's concentrating too much.

I'm not going to run down the All-Star Game, mostly because I decided to not really watch it, but let's just bask in the fact that we're very close to real baseball coming back. I miss real baseball, which you can tell th er e is none of judging by what fills the Coffee Companion this morning. - Nelson Cruz and Adam Jones each went 0-for-2 last night in the All-Star Game, which the AL won 5-3. It was all about Derek Jeter , and that's fine. - Cal Ripken Jr., who's also familiar with getting a pitch grooved to him in an All-Star Game, said the Orioles are playing well in a radio appearance yesterday.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Another afternoon slipped by, another 40,000 people sat down, and by the time the evening breeze brought the seagulls to scavenge AT&T Park's bleachers, Barry Bonds had made no progress on Babe Ruth. Hitless in four plate appearances, still at Ruth's door, Bonds had packed his gear after eight innings. He was in the clubhouse after being replaced in left field for the ninth inning, presumably watching when his teammates went out on their four-run ninth inning to beat the Dodgers, 6-5. For the moment, the pressing concern for the Giants is less Bonds' failure to catch Ruth, but the impact it has on their offense.

DETROIT - Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley made a point to talk to infielder Ryan Flaherty on Friday afternoon after watching Flaherty strike out three times against the Detroit Tigers. Flaherty so badly was trying to get a single, to get his first hit of the season, that he had lost focus on just hitting the ball hard somewhere, Presley said. He wanted to remind one of his hardest-working pupils to relax and not get too discouraged. "When you start thinking about base hits, you kind of get yourself in trouble," Presley said.

After starting the day 0-for-3 at the plate, River Hill leadoff batter Kat Varga came through when it mattered most. Against Atholton in the Class 3A East softball semifinals Monday, Varga delivered RBI singles in her final two at-bats, including a walk-off hit in the eighth to seal a comeback win, 7-6, for River Hill (14-5). "I was not hitting all game. I kept hitting to the same spot every time, and I was so angry," said Varga, who had two flyouts to left and a strikeout to open her afternoon.

Right-hander Jake Arrieta looked very impressive in his 2012 Grapefruit League debut Friday afternoon, throwing two hitless innings against the Tampa Bay Rays and displaying terrific velocity. His fastball was clocked by the Charlotte Sports Complex radar gun as high as 97 mph, and it averaged 96 mph over the course of a 24-pitch outing during which he threw 17 strikes and allowed just one walk. Though Arrieta still has to prove that his surgically repaired elbow is strong enough to pitch late into ballgames, he had to be very encouraged with how strong he felt the first time out. He is just seven months removed from the procedure that extracted a large spur from his pitching elbow.

He knew he had to prove that he still belongs in the rotation. Hernandez, who won the club's fifth starter role out of spring training but has scuffled with his command much of the season, pitched a one-hitter as the Orioles beat the Nationals 5-3 in front of 27,378 fans at Nationals Park.

CLEVELAND -- Orioles designated hitter Jay Gibbons knew that things were going extremely poorly for him. He just didn't know how bad it had gotten. When informed that he was 0-for-his-past-21, the longest hitless stretch of his career, Gibbons mumbled, "Ouch." "I had no idea," said Gibbons, who is hitting .191 with no home runs and seven RBIs. "I wish I had an answer. The only thing I can do is keep working at it and try to break out of it." Gibbons' struggles have made for a dilemma for manager Sam Perlozzo, who has vowed to put his best team on the field, but also knows the club is going to need Gibbons to produce this season.

San Francisco -- Barry Bonds threw his head back, slapped his bat, and the aisles of AT&T Park filled with the people who had stayed most of a warm, sunny Thursday afternoon to see him take one more shot at Babe Ruth. Ruth, it turns out, won't go easily. Another day and five more plate appearances were gone, the Chicago Cubs were on their way out, the Los Angeles Dodgers on their way in, and Bonds was stuck at 713 home runs, one behind Ruth and in third place all time. In a 9-3 victory for his San Francisco Giants, Bonds was hitless in three at-bats and walked twice.
