BOSTON - The Orioles had few answers to Boston right-hander John Lackey on Thursday night, and after their 3-1 loss to the Red Sox, there was little consolation in the fact that they left Fenway Park having taken two of three from the team with the best record in the American League. With 10 games remaining in the regular season, the Orioles are on the outside of the AL wild-card picture and need to compile wins with a flurry to clinch their second straight postseason berth. Running into Lackey on Thursday night didn't help.

Major league teams obsess throughout the month of July about the deadline for making trades without passing players through waivers, then some of them sacrifice their best young talent for the prospect of some instant postseason gratification. There have been countless situations where that bargain paid off with a missing puzzle piece that helped a team get into the playoffs, but there are plenty of other instances where things didn't work out so well. The jury is still out on 2014, of course, but the early returns haven't been so great for a couple teams that acquired front-line starting pitchers.

BOSTON - Nelson Cruz's five-hit night helped send Red Sox right-hander John Lackey to an early exit in the Orioles' 7-4 win over Boston in the nightcap of the teams' doubleheader, but after the game, Lackey didn't have much positive to say about Cruz. Cruz was 3-for-3 with a double and homer off Lackey. He doubled and singled off Lackey in his first two at-bats of the game, then hit a towering solo homer down the left-field line that cleared the Green Monster and hit a sign well above it. Cruz also hit an RBI single and a double after Lackey exited.

Each start by Orioles left-hander Brian Burres seems to bring the same question: Will he make his next one? Burres isn't exactly flush with promises when it comes to keeping his spot in the rotation, but the Orioles never wanted him to treat each assignment like an audition.

Ramon Hernandez stood stock still and flipped his bat aside, confident that he had just become the Orioles' second ninth-inning hero in as many nights. But as the ball arced toward the left-field wall, manager Sam Perlozzo had his doubts. Friday night's back-and-forth affair with the Los Angeles Angels had been so crazy that he wouldn't have been shocked if Hernandez's blast had fallen short.

A contentious four-game series with the Boston Red Sox ended Sunday with four more ejections, Michael Gonzalez 's not denying that he threw a purpose pitch behind David Ortiz , and Buck Showalter and Jeremy Guthrie criticizing the umpiring crew. "I've said it before: Sometimes those who are in control of the game — I know the umpires have to control it — show a lack of feel by not understanding what is going on," said Guthrie, who hit Kevin Youkilis with a changeup to load the bases with two outs in the fourth inning, resulting in plate umpire Marty Foster 's warning both benches.

BOSTON – In an energized visiting clubhouse late Friday night, an Orioles team that had lost five straight games – many in humiliating fashion – sounded as if it had gotten the wakeup call it badly needed. The players talked excitedly about Friday's benches-clearing incident, which resulted in David Ortiz and Kevin Gregg trading wild and errant punches, and vowed that it would serve as a galvanizing moment. Less than 24 hours later, they went out and looked like a lifeless bunch, getting totally dominated by a pitcher who has made a habit of getting booed off the mound in his home ballpark.

I t has been a busy December for the Orioles - at least by Orioles standards - and the three veteran players who have been signed or acquired to solidify the roster fit specific needs outlined by Andy MacPhail heading into the offseason. But those season-ticket plans are still going to be a tough sell. Kevin Millwood is a decent starting pitcher with a solid track record. Mike Gonzalez is a talented left-handed reliever who should fill the void left when MacPhail traded George Sherrill for third base prospect Josh Bell.

While all of you are enjoying the New York Yankees' first appearance in the World Series since 2003, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail and his staff will be mapping out the coming offseason and trying to figure out whether they have what it will take to make the team significantly more competitive than it was this year. You have to wonder. It's not like the Orioles are just a medium move or two away from putting a scare into the rest of the American League East. They need at least one big bat for the heart of the lineup and one of the corners of the infield.

Leadoff scoring The Orioles' leadoff hitters reached base safely and scored in each of their first four innings. Only one Orioles run was not scored by a player leading off an inning. The Red Sox didn't put their lead hitter on with a hit or a walk until the ninth, when they mounted a four-run rally to tie the game at 5. Boston's leadoff hitter in the 11th, Jacoby Ellsbury, doubled and scored the winning run. A scorching Ty Ty Wigginton, who hit his sixth homer of the season in the fourth inning, is batting .447 with three homers in his past 38 at-bats.
