OAKLAND, Calif. - Orioles closer Zach Britton hadn't allowed a run over his previous 10 outings heading into the ninth inning of Friday night's series opener against the Oakland Athletics, converting six straight save opportunities along the way. Britton had slid into the role of closer nicely in the first half of the season, but in his first appearance since the All-Star break, a save opportunity turned into a disaster in just six pitches....

OAKLAND, Calif. - A day after blowing his third save opportunity of the season in a 5-4, walk-off loss Friday to the Oakland Athletics, Orioles closer Zach Britton wanted to get back on the mound as soon as possible. “I hope we either have a huge lead or I have to opportunity to be out there,” Britton said. “I think the one thing about being a reliever is that you're able to turn the page much quicker. You understand it's one bad inning, and you just kind of move on. You make adjustments, and if the same situation comes in, you know how to attack it differently than I did last night.” Britton failed to retire a batter in the ninth inning, and Oakland won on Josh Donaldson's three-run homer to center field.

Manny Machado was given the opportunity to speak to his team in a meeting before Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards. Like he has now done publicly, the Orioles third baseman apologized. “Today, with the meeting, we just got to get focused, get back on track and get back to what we need to do,” Machado said after Monday's 4-0 win over the Boston Red Sox. “You go up there and say what you are feeling. I went up there and apologized to everybody here.” Machado earned national scrutiny for three incidents in the series against the Oakland Athletics over the weekend.  In the series opener Friday, he took objection to a tag by third baseman Josh Donaldson and started an argument that resulted in the benches clearing.

OAKLAND, Calif.  -- When the Orioles open the second half Friday at the O.co Coliseum, it also marks third baseman Manny Machado's first game against the Oakland Athletics since June 8, when he was ejected for tossing his bat, an incident that led to a five-game suspension and heavy criticism from Oakland players. Machado said he has moved on from the incident, but it will be the first time he will be on the field with A's who criticized Machado's actions following the bat toss and Machado's confrontation with third baseman Josh Donaldson for what he thought was a hard tag. “It's something that's just part of baseball,” Machado said following the Orioles' team workout Thursday.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado had his suspension appeal hearing Wednesday at the team's offices in the Warehouse, and he said he thought it went well. Now he'll wait to hear whether his five-game suspension for throwing a bat during the Orioles-Oakland Athletics game June 8 will be reduced. “We'll just wait, wait and see. See where it takes us,” Machado said. “At this point, there's nothing to talk about.” Machado said the hearing, which lasted about an hour, was held before Joe Garagiola Jr., baseball's senior vice president of standards and on-field operations.

Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez had already caught one break in the third inning of Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics when a grand slam by John Jaso was overturned by review and ruled a two-run double. But Jimenez still couldn't manage to get out of his own way, his control failing as he suffered his shortest outing in 13 starts with the Orioles. Jimenez left the game with the Orioles trailing, 6-0, after Oakland first baseman Brandon Moss hit a monster grand slam to center field that didn't need a review.

OAKLAND, Calif. - After throwing off a mound for the first time since going on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez could pitch a minor league rehabilitation game by the middle of next week, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday. Jimenez tested his ankle with a bullpen session during the Orioles' post-All-Star-break workout in Oakland on Thursday and was pleased with the progress of his recovery. He will throw another bullpen session Sunday.

Even to the most die-hard Orioles fan -- even the ones most blinded by the darkest orange-and-black colored shades -- Manny Machado's bat fling on Sunday afternoon had to seem a little weird. Machado said after the Orioles' 11-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics that his bat left his grasp and twirled down the third-base line in play unintentionally . But when you look at the play, Machado swung the bat nowhere close to the pitch low and inside. His swing also was extremely late.

(Updated with Roch Kubatko's response) The Baltimore Orioles have a public relations problem, thanks to the behavior of third baseman Manny Machado in a weekend series against Oakland. On Friday, he objected to a tag put on him by A's third baseman Josh Donaldson -- and before it was over, both benches had cleared. On Sunday, two of his backswings hit catcher Derek Norris in the head, and he never asked if the A's backstop was OK. Later in the game, his bat flew out of his hands after an inside pitch with such perceived intent that the home plate umpire ejected him from the game.
