CHICAGO - In the two biggest games of his life - in the two biggest games of the Chicago White Sox's season - John Danks has come up big. Make that huge. Starting the American League Central tiebreaker Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins, the second-year left-hander threw eight shutout innings. In the AL Division Series stay-alive game yesterday, he gave up three runs in 6 2/3 innings. Both times the White Sox survived, and the 5-3 victory yesterday over the Tampa Bay Rays forced a Game 4 in the best-of-five series.

The Orioles were looking for something, anything to break a five-game losing streak and end a terrible homestand with a positive last night. What they received in an 11-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox was an offensive explosion, an adequate pitching performance and several fine defensive plays. They also got a key assist from a plate of bad scallops. Melvin Mora, Aubrey Huff and Kevin Millar each homered, and rookie Radhames Liz (5-3) pitched just well enough to win. But the hero was leadoff hitter Brian Roberts, who tied a season high with three RBIs despite not knowing he would be playing until three-plus hours before the first pitch.

Mark Buehrle rolls on. He's headed toward both the last turn in what has been one of his best seasons and a chance to go on the free-agent market this winter. But Buehrle is only one of five elite left-handers who could control his fate in the next 16 months. CC Sabathia, C.J. Wilson, Cole Hamels and John Danks, Buehrle's teammate with the White Sox, also are on track for free agency after 2011 or '12. The buzz created by Cliff Lee's free agency last winter, when the Yankees romanced him and he was pressured to stay with the Rangers before jumping to the Phillies for $120 million over five years, could foreshadow crazy scenarios the next two offseasons.

Chris Davis was officially named the 2013 Most Valuable Oriole on Sunday. I guess that's what happens when you break the franchise record for homer runs -- with 53 -- and drive in a major league-best 138 runs. Yeah, it's been a pretty good season for Davis. He received all but one first place vote from the media that covers the team. Adam Jones got that one. Jones finished second overall and Manny Machado third. Chris Tillman also received some votes. Here's an excerpt from Davis' news conference: “It's been a really fun year for me personally, a little disappointing at the end, obviously, not making the postseason.

CHICAGO -- Scott Feldman already has a locker in the visiting clubhouse of U.S. Cellular Field, his new Orioles No. 34 jerseys hanging inside. He's currently on his way from Oakland - where the Cubs are playing and Feldman was slated to start tonight -- back to Chicago.  And the Orioles will be expecting him to be ready immediately tommorrow. The Orioles announced that Feldman will make his Orioles debut Wednesday against the White Sox. Left-hander Zach Britton will start Thursday's afternoon game on regular rest.

SLUMP ENDS: Orioles shortstop Juan Castro, who was in an 0-for-11 skid and just 2-for-20 during the homestand, hit a double during a two-run rally in the second inning and drove in two runs with a bloop single in the fifth. Both hits came with two outs. MARKAKIS GUNS DOWN: ANOTHER: Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis threw out the White Sox's Jim Thome, who was trying to stretch a drive off the right-field scoreboard into a double in the third. It was Markakis' 15th assist. Going into the game, he led all major league outfielders in assists.

The Orioles took a 4-0 lead in the sixth inning Friday with back-to-back solo home runs by Chris Davis and Matt Wieters. Davis' homer against John Danks was his major league-leading 48th of the season. Davis is now one homer shy of tying Frank Robinson for second most in club history. Wieters' homer was his 21st of the season and his 20th as a catcher this year. He's the only player in Orioles history to register three consecutive seasons with 20 or more homers while playing catcher.  The last Oriole to have three 20-plus homer seasons as a catcher was Chris Hoiles, who achieved the feat in 1992, 1993 and 1996.

Do the Orioles have a chance to land Gavin Floyd or Carlos Quentin from the Chicago White Sox? Absolutely. Or maybe not at all. It really depends on whom you ask. The sides have definitely talked -- and there is no question the Orioles would love to bring Floyd, a Mount St. Joseph alum, back to Baltimore. They also would be a decent fit for outfielder Carlos Quentin, whom the White Sox would consider moving to make room for Dayan Viciedo. But there are some conflicting signals coming out of Chicago.
