Looking for bullpen help after trading four relievers, including three from their 40-man roster last week, the Orioles have signed right-hander Jeremy Accardo to a one-year, $1.08 million deal, according to an industry source. Accardo, 28, pitched in just five games with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2010, compiling a 0-1 record and 8.10 ERA in 6 2/3 big league innings. In fact, he spent most of the past two seasons at Triple-A Las Vegas, where he was the closer, saving 37 games in two years.

There have been plenty of times this season when it would have been easy to sum up another Orioles loss by looking at just one play or one statistic. But not Friday night, not when there was so much bad baseball to choose from, not when the Orioles all but gift-wrapped the Nationals their seventh straight win and presented it to them with a tidy bow. The Orioles' latest eyesore of a performance -- this one resulting in a 8-4 loss in front of an announced 35,562 at Nationals Park -- featured another critical error by third baseman Mark Reynolds, whose errant throw led to the Nationals' four-run fifth inning off rookie Zach Britton, who had seemingly been in complete control.

The Orioles were one out away from winning another series from the division rival Tampa Bay Rays, from tying their season high for consecutive wins and from getting back to an even record for the first time since May 26. But closer Kevin Gregg couldn't close it out in the ninth and reliever Jeremy Accardo allowed several key hits as the Rays beat the Orioles, 7-5, in 11 innings Saturday night. "We have been so good closing out games recently that it is tough," said Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie, who allowed three runs in six innings and left with a chance to win. "We are not going to always have everything go well for us and perfect.

In an effort to improve their 2011 roster, the Orioles have added former Toronto Blue Jays right-handed reliever Jeremy Accardo on a one-year, $1.08 million deal, pending a physical, and are continuing to pursue a free-agent first baseman. Adam LaRoche, who hit 25 homers and drove in 100 runs for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010, appears to be the club's top candidate at first base, and the team is continuing to talk to his representatives. The Orioles also have spoken to representatives for former Atlanta Braves first baseman Derrek Lee. It's believed Lee, 35, is seeking a one-year deal, while LaRoche, 31, is in line for a two-year contract.

Orioles closer Kevin Gregg isn't getting too excited after converting three consecutive save opportunities or making four straight hitless appearances. That seems fitting since he stayed calm after his first five outings, which included allowing hits in each and blowing a save at Yankee Stadium on his first pitch, a homer by Jorge Posada . "I don't think I would be here right now if I doubted [my ability]," Gregg said. "There are days when you are not throwing the ball the best and you still have to believe in your ability and what's going on. As soon as you panic, that's when things are going to go haywire for you. I didn't panic; I believe in what I was doing and my preparation was there, and I knew it was going to come back around.

Strengths -- He throws his fastball at 95, 96 [mph]. His splitter is his put-away pitch. That's what he goes to. He's very aggressive. He comes right at you. Weaknesses -- He is a guy, you can sit on his fastball, but you've got to get past his splitter. He can be a deep-count pitcher. He doesn't always get ahead, and he can get that fastball up in the zone with no movement. Overall -- Everything for him is predicated on his command. If he throws strikes and pitches ahead, he is tough.

Frustration sets in After the Orioles' third straight loss, teammates Jay Payton and Melvin Mora nearly got into a fistfight in the dugout and then outside the visiting clubhouse. Payton, who made the last out, was angry that Mora took third base on Jeremy Accardo's 1-1 pitch because he said that it distracted him. The two, who were teammates on the 1999 and 2000 New York Mets, later hugged in the clubhouse after an apology by Mora. Bedard good Erik Bedard continued his string of no-decisions, pitching seven solid innings but failing to hold a 3-0 lead.
