For 2 1/2 weeks, the Orioles have tried to put their offensive struggles in perspective by saying every team slumps at least once during the season and their struggles have just been magnified because it's so early. But after the Orioles were completely overpowered by Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez, who went the distance in Seattle Mariners' sweep-completing 4-1 victory Wednesday night before an announced 18,401 at Safeco Field, designated hitter Luke Scott stopped trying and voiced the unspoken thoughts of his teammates.

Chris Tillman pitched two perfect innings, Garrett Atkins had two hits and Adam Jones connected for an opposite-field home run in the Orioles' 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night before 4,187 at Ed Smith Stadium. With the Orioles leading 3-2 with two outs in the eighth, Troy Patton allowed a game-tying solo homer to Pirates catching prospect Tony Sanchez. The Pirates then broke the tie with two runs in the ninth off Alfredo Simon as Delwyn Young had an RBI single and Jose Tabata plated an insurance run with a sacrifice fly. Tillman struck out three and threw 22 of his 33 pitches for strikes, showing no signs of the back soreness that bothered him earlier in spring training.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts received his second epidural shot for the herniated disk in his back Monday and likely will be sidelined most of April. Before Monday's game, the Orioles placed their leadoff hitter on the 15-day disabled list with a strained abdominal, which he injured while sliding into second base during a steal in the first inning of Friday's home opener. When Roberts hit the corner of second base on the steal, it jarred his ailing back, which had kept him out of all but six games during spring training.

- The Orioles have asked Gold Glove center fielder Adam Jones to consider playing a little deeper this season to cut down on the number of extra-base hits landing over his head. "When a ball falls in, he feels bad about it," Orioles first base and outfield coach John Shelby said. "He feels like he should catch everything. We're going to work on going back, playing a little bit deeper. He's very confident going back and coming in." In 2009, Jones became the first Orioles outfielder since Paul Blair in 1975 to win a Gold Glove, but he was scrutinized for much of the season for how shallow he plays.

OAKLAND, Calif. - -With Cesar Izturis headed to the disabled list after having an emergency appendectomy Friday night, the Orioles are prepared to go with Robert Andino as their starting shortstop for the next several weeks. Infielder Oscar Salazar's contract will be selected today from Triple-A Norfolk as the roster replacement for Izturis, though he would be used at shortstop only on an emergency basis. That leaves Andino, 25, acquired from the Florida Marlins in the spring training trade for Hayden Penn, as the only shortstop on the Orioles' roster.

BOSTON - -Justin Turner had already been to Fenway Park twice before. He was with Triple-A Norfolk this season when the Tides played Pawtucket at the stadium. He had also played there as a collegian in the Cape Cod League. But as he walked into the stadium Tuesday and entered the visiting clubhouse, he was overcome by a different feeling. "It's something you work for your whole life and dream about as a kid," Turner said. "To finally get here is indescribable." Turner, a second baseman acquired from the Cincinnati Reds last offseason in the Ramon Hernandez deal, was one of five Tides added to the Orioles' roster Tuesday.

At some point this spring, Justin Turner will jog out to second base, Blake Davis will head to shortstop and Scott Moore will go to third. For all three, it will serve as another opportunity to impress Oriole officials, and another reminder that they're still playing together a dozen years later. Turner, Davis and Moore were teammates when they were all 12 or 13-years old on the Orange County (Calif.) Cardinals Connie Mack Little League team. They're in spring training with the Orioles and marveling at how that came to be. "I think the stars aligned for all of us to end up here in the same organization all these years later," Turner said.

David Hernandez and four relievers shut down the Boston Red Sox in the Orioles' 6-1 victory today before an announced sellout crowd of 8,037 at sun-splashed Ed Smith Stadium. Bidding to win the Orioles' fifth starter job over Chris Tillman, Hernandez tossed five scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out six. The Red Sox loaded the bases with no outs against Hernandez in the fourth, but the Orioles' right-hander, mostly relying on a buckling curveball, struck out the side, fanning Mitch Dening, Marco Scutaro and Josh Reddick.
