Dylan Bundy allowed his fourth home run as a pro Friday night, but the Orioles' top pitching prospect only gave up one run on on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings in High-A Frederick's game at Winston-Salem. He struck out six and walked one. The night didn't go nearly as well for Brian Matusz. The lefty was shelled for six earned runs on nine hits and one walk in six innings pitching for Triple-A Norfolk at Syracuse. Matusz had been solid in his first two minor league starts of the season, but this one was clearly a step back.

When the Orioles signed Nelson Cruz to a club-friendly one-year, $8 million deal in February, executive vice president Dan Duquette was quick to point out Cruz's postseason accomplishments. And while the Orioles have reaped a huge payoff from their investment in Cruz - he led the majors with 40 homers and at times, carried the club on his broad shoulders - the 34-year-old slugger brings huge playoff credentials into the Orioles' American League Division Series matchup against the Detroit Tigers.

Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds recorded his second two-homer game of the series in today's series finale at Yankee Stadium, driving in four of the Orioles' five runs so far as the O's have taken a 5-3 lead here in the Bronx. Reynolds' first homer, a solo shot in the fifth inning, was a mammoth shot to left field off Phil Hughes that landed about 15 rows up into the Yankee Stadium outfield bleachers. His second one -- another bomb into the left-field bleachers -- was a three-run shot off Hughes that gave the Orioles a 5-3 lead in the team's four-run sixth inning.

After the Orioles' 7-2 victory Saturday night over the Boston Red Sox, manager Buck Showalter was preparing himself for a postgame discussion with Adam Jones, whom he was considering sitting for Sunday's regular-season home finale. It would be a short turnaround for an afternoon game, but these kind of discussions are delicate for Showalter. Jones, the club's All-Star center fielder, wants to play every day, and usually does, ignoring the nagging bumps and bruises of a long season.

Chris Davis' second-inning solo homer on Friday night was record-setting. It was the 66th homer to land onto Eutaw Street - behind the right-field flag court - in Camden Yards history. And it was also the ninth this year - the most Eutaw Street homers hit in any one season. The previous record was eight, set in 2008. Davis has hit three there this year. He homered again in the fourth and again in the sixth  - neither onto Eutaw Street - giving him 23 on the season. That surpasses his career-high of 21 set in 2009.

Chris Davis homered in the fourth inning - a two-run shot that was his fourth in his past three games. It also was his 30th of the season - something he has never done as a big leaguer, although he reached the milestone in the minors before. Davis is the second Oriole to get to 30 this season, joining Adam Jones, who has 32. It's the sixth time in Orioles history that teammates have hit 30 or more homers in a season. The others: J.J. Hardy and Mark Reynolds (2011); Brady Anderson and Rafael Palmeiro (1996)

It obviously was a good sign for the Orioles that Nick Markakis, who is coming off January abdomen surgery, homered in his first regular-season at-bat. But what was most impressive is where the ball landed: left field. It was just the 12th time in 105 career homers, that Markakis planted one to the opposite field. It was his first left-field homer since 2008. Markakis has hit just 27 homers in his past two seasons - and there are plenty of theories why. He's never used the abdomen injury as an excuse, but when doctors went into repair the tears they found scar tissue from previous injuries that apparently were undiscovered.

The starting lineup the Orioles fielded Friday night against the Boston Red Sox was one more likely to be seen in March than September. But with the American League East already wrapped up, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said the club will choose its spots to rest key starters. The club's batting order Friday included just two players, right fielder Steve Pearce and shortstop Ryan Flaherty, who were with the club last August. It was missing six starters from the its Opening Day lineup.

Monday night's five-home-run outburst temporarily silenced concerns about the Orioles' offense, and gave the team 168 home runs on the season, 18 more than the next-closest team in the majors. But if the Orioles are to bring the first World Series title to Baltimore since 1983, they will have to buck a recent trend of the best slugging-teams in the league not making the World Series.  The Orioles are searching to become the first team since the 2009 New York Yankees to lead the league in home runs and go on to win the World Series, showing that teams with multiple ways to push runs across ultimately have a better chance to advance in the playoffs.

The Orioles figured out a simple way Monday night to bust out of an offensive skid that cost them three games at Wrigley Field over the weekend. Get home -- and start homering. And keep homering, in consecutive at-bats, if possible, until you've beaten the opposition into submission and set a little franchise history. In a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, the Orioles had 14 hits -- including five home runs by five different players -- to snap their three-game losing streak.

CLEVELAND - Orioles center fielder Adam Jones isn't one to swallow his opinion, but after the Orioles lost 2-1 in 11 innings Friday night on a walk-off home run by Cleveland Indians third baseman Mike Aviles, Jones carefully measured his words. “I plead the fifth. I think being smart in what you say will help you in the long run,” said Jones, who was involved in a controversial hit-by-pitch call in the eighth inning. “I'd rather take the high road tonight and … I'd just rather take the high road.” The Orioles (69-51)

With nearly two dozen Orioles greats in attendance to commemorate the franchise's 60th anniversary, manager Buck Showalter felt a certain pressure for his club to perform Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals. As the Orioles wore cream-colored replicas of the inaugural 1954 club's uniforms, the organization welcomed back 23 Orioles Hall of Famers with an elaborate postgame ceremony, complete with a fireworks display and laser-light show. But the fireworks started early.

In what was sure to be the most exciting night of baseball we see this fall, the Orioles and the Red Sox went down to the wire in Baltimore on Wednesday while the Rays and the Yankees played extra-innings in Florida. With the two wild-card races being decided in Game 162 -- St. Louis edged Atlanta in the National League -- it had already been a fun night for baseball fans. But things really started to get crazy when Dan Johnson, a .119 hitter in 2011, capped off a seven-run Rays comeback with a two-out home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter might not be a fan of doubleheaders, but he couldn't complain about the result of Saturday's split twin bill against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Camden Yards. The Orioles won both games of the doubleheader, getting a career-high four RBIs from Manny Machado in a 6-1 nightcap win that followed their 7-5 victory in the early game. In between, the team honored former manager Earl Weaver, the legendary Orioles skipper who preached the importance of pitching, defense and the three-run homer.

Frustrated by toiling in the minor leagues for six years and questioning whether he'd ever get the opportunity to make it to the majors, Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph considered retiring this offseason when he went unprotected by the O's and went unselected in December's Rule 5 Draft. But now Joseph, a 28-year-old rookie, has homered his way into franchise history, becoming the first Orioles catcher and the first rookie to hit a home run in five straight games after his two-run homer in the second-inning of Saturday's 10-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Orioles hit six home runs in their first six innings on Friday night to go up 12-0 against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Orioles ended up with a 12-2 win.  It obviously sets a season high and was the first time the Orioles have hit that many since Sept. 26, 2012 against Toronto. They have 144 homers this season, most in the majors. Chris Davis hit a solo shot in the sixth inning that was his 20th of the season and 150th of his career. J.J. Hardy had two homers, a solo in the third and a three-run shot in the fourth.
