The Yankees have announced that Joe Girardi's father died Saturday. News of Jerry Girardi's death broke earlier in the day. He had been battling Alzheimer's disease and was 81. Girardi choked up when talking about the passing of his father at his pregame news conference, saying he kept quiet about the death because he didn't want it to be a distraction.

If you weren't certain before, Wednesday night at Camden Yards confirmed it: The American League East is officially on its ear. It was the Orioles who bided their time against a filthy starter, battered the underbelly of the opposition's bullpen and moved further ahead in the division standings. With a 5-3 comeback victory paced by eighth-inning home runs from Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones, the Orioles pulled a Yankee on the New York Yankees. “We are just playing good baseball,” said Jones, whose two-out, three-run blast landed in the Orioles' bullpen.

Manager Buck Showalter charged out of the Orioles dugout at the end of the first inning Monday night, shouting angrily at Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Showalter was so hot, in fact, that he had to be restrained by the umpiring crew. It didn't take a very astute lip reader to figure out what Showalter was saying on the video replay, and the first thing out of his mouth cannot be printed here. Then he clearly was saying “That ain't right, Joe…That ain't right.” Before Showalter left the dugout, there appeared to be some angry banter between Girardi and Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson that was caught by the camera of the YES Network, leading to some speculation by the Yankee broadcasters that Girardi may have accused Dickerson of stealing signs.

TORONTO -- The Orioles selected the contract of first baseman Dan Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk to add another left-handed bat in place of rookie outfielder Henry Urrutia, who is not with the team in Canada because of visa issues. The club placed Urrutia on the three-day restricted list while he works out in Sarasota, Fla.. After Sunday's game, the Orioles will need to make a decision on whether to bring Urrutia to Boston. If they decide to keep Johnson on the active roster, they will have to clear a 40-man spot for him once Urrutia is activated.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he had no knowledge that pitching coach Dave Eiland would be fired following the season, but a person with knowledge of the situation said the relationship between Eiland and Girardi went south after Eiland returned in June from his nearly monthlong personal leave of absence, according to a report on ESPN.com. The report, citing the source, said that upon his return, Eiland believed his opinions were de-emphasized. It is unclear if by the end of the season if Eiland and Girardi were working better together.

Manager Joe Girardi must have influenced the Yankees' addition of Kerry Wood (above). He caught Wood with the Cubs in 2000-02 but it seems like a reach to expect Wood to succeed where Joba Chamberlain has failed in consistently getting leads to Mariano Rivera. Wood has been a mess with the Indians. … Player most surprisingly not traded: Brett Myers. Astros owner Drayton McLane never will throw in the towel. He sees Myers becoming a replacement for Roy Oswalt , but he's a risky guy to give an extension, and the Astros aren't going anywhere for at least a couple of years.

It wasn't one they'll be talking about years from now when they tell the story of the Orioles' return to glory. If they talk at all about yesterday at Camden Yards, it'll be about how fans and players were teased by a downpour all day, then got one when things were almost finished. And about how Steve Trachsel couldn't pitch quick enough or George Sherrill couldn't go to the plate enough (instead of over to first) to get the game in before the rain soaking the rest of the area finally soaked the ballpark.

A recap of the Orioles' 6-1 victory over the Yankees yesterday: Olson bounces back After having his worst start of the season against the Yankees last week, Orioles rookie left-hander Garrett Olson turned in his best yesterday against the same lineup. Using better command -- especially a biting slider that caught the attention of Yankees manager Joe Girardi -- Olson threw seven scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and four walks, and struck out a career-high seven. A nice change from Wednesday, when he gave up six earned runs and couldn't get out of the third inning.

The Yankees clubhouse was subdued and businesslike after Sunday's dramatic, 7-2, Game 1 ALDS victory, not surprising considering how many big games most of the players have experienced. The Yankees were happy for catcher Russell Martin, who hit the game-winning home run off Orioles closer Jim Johnson after a rough season offensively. "It's awesome," starter C.C. Sabathia said. "He's struggled all year, but his attitude has never changed. He came up with some big hits in September, and that was probably one of the biggest right there.

Who really knows whether New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi had a legitimate gripe when he called out Orioles coach Bobby Dickerson for allegedly stealing signs on Monday night, but thanks to Buck Showalter's mad dash onto the field at the end of the first inning, we're all getting a crash course in baseball's dark art. Let's not be naïve. The reason each team has a complex system of signs to call pitches and various other plays is because it is understood that anybody worth two bags of Red Man is looking for an edge and isn't going to go to bed with a guilty conscience for cracking that code.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter's fiery charge out of his dugout following the first inning Monday night -- as he tried to push through two umpires to get at Yankees manager Joe Girardi -- undoubtedly added some fuel to this week's pivotal four-game series. Both teams are playing for their playoff lives this week, but Showalter made it clear his team wasn't going to be bullied on the field or off during the Orioles' 4-2 victory over the Yankees in front of an announced 17,456 at Camden Yards.

  Here are the post-game transcripts of what Orioles manager Buck Showalter, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson had to say about Monday's dust-up after the first inning in which the two managers screamed at each other and had to be separated by the umpires. BUCK SHOWALTER What caused you to come out of the dugout?  “(Girardi) was yelling at the third base coach. Somebody's wearing black and orange, I'm not going to let that happen.

As J.J. Hardy's game-winning double bounced off the outfield wall in the 13th inning, it dawned on 49,307 suddenly quiet New Yorkers that the 2012 Orioles just won't go away. With their 2-1 win over the New York Yankees Thursday, the Orioles kept their season alive and set up a decisive Game 5 in the Bronx on Friday afternoon. Just as the Yankees could not shake the Orioles all season, they could not shake them through a marathon elimination game. "It's been a fight to stay ahead of this team all season, and it seems fitting," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of having to play a fifth game against the Orioles.

NEW YORK - Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn't know exactly what his New York counterpart, Yankees manager Joe Girardi , was going through Thursday after the death of Girardi's father became public. But Showalter, whose own dad passed away shortly after Showalter was named Yankees manager more than 20 years ago, empathized with Girardi's plight over the past few days. "Every situation is different like that. It's part of life, but you're never ready," Showalter said.
