In case you're wondering, John Oates will not jeopardize Joe Orsulak's career-high 21-game hitting streak by using him as a pinch hitter or any other role that might restrict his number of at-bats.That means Orsulak's attempt to match the Orioles' club record will have to wait until tomorrow night. The hot-hitting outfielder will not be in the lineup when the Orioles open a three-game series against Toronto tonight because the Blue Jays are nTC starting lefthander Jimmy Key.Compared to other more notable hitting streaks in baseball history, Orsulak's might not appear to be a big deal, but it is to Oates.

Opposing pitchers just can't stop Glynn Davis. The center fielder for High-A Frederick ranks third among qualified players in the Carolina League with a .316 batting average and is seventh in OPS at .826. He has recorded a hit in each of the Keys' last six games. Signed by the Orioles in 2010, Davis has become a dangerous leadoff hitter this year. The 22-year-old has upped his batting average from .234 last season, but he's most dangerous when he gets on base. Since 2011, the outfielder has 90 stolen bases, and has been thrown out just 29 times.

When John Oates became the manager of the Baltimore Orioles in late May, one of his first pronouncements was that Joe Orsulak would play every day, period.Oates has had to back off from that promise slightly, but his faith in Orsulak's ability still has paid dividends.Orsulak entered last night with a 21-game hitting streak, one short of the club record, and as a semi-regular caught in the middle of a late-season experiment with youth.By mid-game, Orsulak's quest was the focal point of the crowd, with Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Juan Guzman rolling comfortably behind a 6-1 lead.

The Orioles couldn't get out of Canada any faster Wednesday night. The first leg of their three-city, nine-game road trip couldn't have gone any worse. With their starting pitching reeling and questions about the health of two of their top players, being swept out of Rogers Centre was just the beginning. After winning five of six games against the Blue Jays last month, including two of three in a mid-April series here - the once-high-flying Orioles now have their wings clipped.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Baltimore Orioles youth movement took another step forward last night, and so did the longest hitting streak in the major leagues.Rookie left-hander Arthur Rhodes made his major-league debut against the Texas Rangers, and he would have taken his first defeat if not for outfielder Joe Orsulak, who extended his hitting streak to 19 games with a two-run double that carried the Orioles to a 4-3 victory.Rhodes, the newest member of baseball's youngest starting rotation, gave up three runs on four hits over four-plus innings and left the game trailing by a run. Todd Frohwirth followed him to the mound and pitched four scoreless innings to get the victory.

Dylan Bundy, the Orioles' 2011 first-round draft pick, extended his season-long no-hitter Tuesday night with four perfect frames in Delmarva's 4-2 win against Greenville (BOS). Bundy struck out six batters, including two in his first foray into the fourth inning of the season, and needed just 44 pitches to retire all 12 Greenville batters he faced. After the game, pitching coach Troy Mattes said Bundy was “pretty much overpowering” with his fastball, which sat at 96 and 97 mph and touched 99 mph later in the outing.

Seattle Mariners bench coach Lee Elia worked with Aubrey Huff when the slugger hit his production peak for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. But in a recent conversation with Orioles manager Dave Trembley, Elia said Huff has looked better at the plate this season than at any other time in his career. That will come as little surprise to Orioles fans, who have watched Huff become the team's best power source, reeling off a career-high 18-game hitting streak in recent weeks. It has been a redemptive followup after Huff struggled his first season in Baltimore and offended fans with comments during the offseason about the city's nightlife.

A recap of the Orioles' 9-0 win over the Rangers last night: STARTING FAST For a second straight night, the Orioles pummeled Texas' starting pitcher early. Four batters reached base in the first against Vicente Padilla, and Brian Roberts scored on Kevin Millar's RBI single. Four more reached base in the second, and Nick Markakis gave the Orioles a commanding lead with a three-run homer to right-center. Roberts walked and scored in each of the first two innings. He also lined his league-leading 42nd double and scored in the fourth inning.

Ben Winter just missed by inches tying three state public school records for no-hitters and settled for a one-hitter as No. 3 Centennial routed visiting Hammond, 12-2, in five innings yesterday. A single in the first inning by Hammond third baseman Travis Clark spoiled the effort by Winter, who was seeking to equal state marks for consecutive, season and career no-hitters - three each. Third baseman Dan Powers hesitated on his jump, missing it by inches as it went into left field, scoring courtesy runner Sam Beatty from second base.

Bill Rowell, who quickly emerged as one of the Orioles' top prospects after being taken with the ninth overall pick in last year's draft, is nearing his first at-bats of the 2007 season. Rowell remains at extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla., the only competition he's had because of a strained oblique muscle. He could be assigned to low Single-A Delmarva later this week because of the significant progress he's making. "He's doing real well, from everything I hear," said Dean Albany, the scout who signed Rowell.

The bat flew out of catcher Geronimo Gil's hands as he swung through a David Wells pitch last night, the lumber rolling farther than most balls hit by the Orioles. Gil retreated to the dugout after striking out. The Orioles had no place to hide. Wells allowed four base runners in eight innings, catcher Jason Varitek hit a three-run homer in the sixth to break open a tight game, and the Red Sox moved back into a tie with the Orioles for first place in the American League East with an 8-0 victory before 36,478 at Camden Yards.
