Get through to him Steve Gould Baltimore Sun As much as Josh Beckett's comments show a disconnect with — perhaps even outright disrespect for — his team and its fans, the Red Sox have little recourse other than to try to hammer into his head why his behavior is so rankling. And good luck with that. Don't let Beckett's horrid outing Thursday or his 5.97 season ERA fool you: He's still a good pitcher and one the Red Sox need. Four of his six outings have been quality starts, and all the outcry over beer and chicken doesn't change the fact that he posted a 2.89 ERA and 8.2 Ks/9 IP last season.

For Orioles fans, the only thing more painful than watching an October without their favorite team this season was probably seeing the Red Sox win the World Series. And the fact that the Orioles won 11 games against Boston this year, most of any team, and won the season series against the Red Sox probably doesn't provide much solace. The Red Sox showed they are the best team in baseball, completing the best turnaround in baseball history. No team has had a lower winning percentage the year before winning a World Series title.

Orioles outfielder Luke Scott irked Red Sox starter Josh Beckett last night by watching his two-run home run exit the ballpark (if you cranked a 426-foot homer onto Eutaw Street, you would stop and admire it, too). And after Scott flipped his bat on his way out of the batter's box, Beckett gave him an earful as he rounded the bases. Apparently, Scott was too busy basking in the glory of his homer to notice that Beckett was yelling and staring him down. “I didn’t notice anything,’’ Scott said after the Orioles' thrilling 5-4 victory at Camden Yards.

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel will highlight five statistics that really mean something for the Orioles. 66 -- saves, most in the major leagues, for Orioles closer Jim Johnson since Sept. 7, 2011. With Tuesday's win over the Toronto Blue Jays, the Orioles have now won 100 straight regular-season games when leading at the completion of the seventh inning, a run that started on August 8, 2011. That is the second-longest such streak since 1961. A lot of things have played a role in that streak -- manager Buck Showalter pointed to the mentality of his players -- but no factor might be bigger than closer Jim Johnson.

Baseball Red Sox@Orioles 7 p.m. [MASN] The Orioles get their first look at the defending World Series champions in classic style. The Orioles have Jeremy Guthrie against postseason pitching hero Josh Beckett (above). The two-game home series that begins tonight is an opportunity for the rebuilding Orioles, hanging tough at .500, to make up a little ground on the American League East-leading Red Sox.

The bat felt different in Kevin Millar's hands, probably because it didn't belong to him. Or maybe because there was a hit stored inside it. Heaven knows, Millar hasn't been producing many of those lately. Mired in a slump that drained points from his batting average and earned him another seat on the bench yesterday, Millar completed a four-run rally in the ninth inning with a two-out single off Kansas City Royals reliever Jimmy Gobble that gave the Orioles an 8-7 victory before the remnants of a crowd of 25,530.

BOSTON -- In manager Sam Perlozzo's eyes, what happened from the fifth to the eighth innings yesterday, when a winnable game turned into a 13-4 rout by the Boston Red Sox, can be traced to the past several weeks when Orioles starters have consistently failed to go deep into games. So even when the Orioles did the improbable yesterday, erasing a three-run deficit to tie the game in the sixth against Boston ace Curt Schilling, Perlozzo sensed an onslaught was coming.

All eyes on Dodgers Mandy Housenick Morning Call The Braves' acquisitions of the Upton brothers have some people believing that's enough to bring a World Series back to Atlanta. The Nationals, anchored by their young pitching staff, could be on the verge of a National League dynasty. But I can't see how all eyes won't be on the Dodgers. Los Angeles spent a boatload of money and resources at the deadline last year and this offseason with the hope of winning a World Series in 2013.

Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds refused to call his two-homer game against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday his first step to redemption. He'd rather footnote it as one good night. Reynolds, who had struggled with his power stroke all year, is beginning to heat up at the plate, as his manager and teammates predicted would eventually happen during the course of the season. Reynolds, who averaged 37 homers the last three seasons, had built up too strong a power-hitting resume to remain in a season-long funk, they argued.

So the Red Sox are coming to Camden Yards for another critical three-game series against the Orioles . Normally we'd save that for Boston's final trip to Baltimore in late September, but who knows if this Red Sox team will still be in the playoff hunt by then. Boston arrives in Baltimore two games under .500 with a 57-59 record. I still think the Red Sox have one strong surge in them, but the later it gets, it becomes more unlikely. They haven't played well all year long.

There was a time - really, name any year in the last half dozen seasons or so -- when the Orioles would travel to Fenway Parkand, if they didn't get swept, it could be considered a small victory. If anything has changed about these Orioles this season it's the way they have played on the road, and, specifically, on Yawkey Way. Behind arguably the best big-league outing of Taiwanese lefty Wei-Yin Chen's brief career, the Orioles beat the Red Sox, 2-1, to capture a series victory and ensure they would win the season series at Fenway Park for the first time since 2005.

Orioles top hitting prospect Manny Machado made his first start in an exhibition game Saturday against the Boston Red Sox, batting ninth and playing shortstop. The 19-year-old was even more excited when he found out he'd be facing right-hander Josh Beckett, who was a star with the Florida Marlins while Machado was growing up in Miami. “At first, it's great to see this guy pitch. I have seen him since I was a little kid,” said Machado, who was the Orioles' first-round pick (third overall)

Despite having yet to throw a Grapefruit League game pitch this spring, Orioles right-hander Tommy Hunter came out of his four-inning Single-A minor league game Friday confident he will be healthy and ready for Opening Day. Hunter, who entered the spring as a top-of-the-rotation candidate, threw 60 pitches and said he threw all four of his pitches for strikes. "I'm ready to go," Hunter said. "I'm good to go right now. You could throw me out there for five innings and I'll be all right.

The first game of the season-ending "Fan Appreciation Celebration" at Oriole Park quickly turned into something completely different in the sixth inning on Monday night when Vladimir Guerrero kept his date with international baseball history. Guerrero singled up the middle in his third at-bat of the Orioles' 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox and passed Julio Franco to become the all-time major league leader in hits by a Dominican-born player. He also sparked a four-run rally that dragged the reeling Red Sox into a wild card dead heat with the surging Tampa Bay Rays.
