— Orioles infielder Jake Fox spent Thursday's off day back on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he once received first-team All-Big Ten conference honors. It was a nice trip down to memory lane for Fox, but he likely got an even bigger thrill today when he arrived at Comerica Park and saw his name in the lineup. Fox, who started the series opener against the Detroit Tigers at first base, had just one at-bat in September and that was all the way back on Sept.
