It remains to be seen how good the Orioles' pitching staff will be this year, but they sure have the makings of a heck of a Division I basketball team. Nine pitchers in camp are 6 feet 5 or taller, and four others are 6-4. Asked whether he has seen so much size in one place before, Orioles starter Adam Loewen said: "I saw it in Jurassic Park. I don't know, maybe we're playing the wrong sport." With that in mind, Loewen, who is 6-6, was asked who would be in his starting lineup if he were coaching the Orioles' basketball team.

SHUT DOWN The Orioles managed just three hits and five base runners in six scoreless innings Tuesday against Washington Nationals starter Shairon Martis. The right-hander, who pitched a no-hitter for the Netherlands in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, allowed two opposite-field singles to Nick Markakis and an infield single to Adam Jones. He also walked Ty Wigginton and hit Ryan Freel. Martis loaded the bases with one out in the fourth but got Orioles designated hitter Matt Wieters to fly out. RAY SHARP AGAIN Reliever Chris Ray continued his strong spring training, pitching a scoreless ninth.

DONNIE BALLGAME Donnie Murphy, brought in on a minor league deal to compete for a utility spot on the Opening Day roster, certainly made good on his one opportunity. A substitute at third base for Ty Wigginton, Murphy broke a 3-3 seventh-inning tie with a two-run homer to right field against Red Sox right-hander Adam Mills. An inning earlier, Red Sox shortstop Ivan Ochoa had tied the game with a two-run homer off Orioles left-hander Chris Waters. LOVE THE GLOVE Two sparkling plays in the fifth inning allowed Orioles reliever Chris Ray to turn in a quick and scoreless inning.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Injured reliever Chris Ray has expanded his throwing program to include 25 tosses from 60 feet to go along with 25 tosses from 45 feet. He is expected to leave major league camp Sunday to continue his rehabilitation from ligament-reconstruction surgery at the club's minor league facility in Sarasota. "I'm just sticking to the schedule," Ray said yesterday. "I'm not sure when the next jump is, but I'll probably be on this a few more times. I feel really good. I'm pleased how my elbow is feeling right now."

Esteban Yan was a starter last year in Japan, so he could pitch in long and middle relief for the Orioles. We won't toss his name into the bucket of fifth-starter candidates. Yan acknowledged that the Orioles were his only option this spring, and he pitched in Japan last year because nobody was interested in signing him. Time is running out. Yan's fastball used to touch 99 mph. He can still reach 94, which isn't bad for a guy who's been pitching since Mike Cuellar was a rookie. Two players who are getting the most raves in camp won't be on the Opening Day roster: Matt Wieters and Chris Ray. Ramon Hernandez is also getting a lot of love, and the coaching staff raves about Dennis Sarfate's power arm. Chris Tillman has also been impressive, but he'll eventually get reassigned to the minor league camp.

The Orioles scored three times in the first inning Wednesday night and defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 3-2, at McKechnie Field to end their six-game Grapefruit League losing streak. Adam Jones touched off the rally with a two-out triple against Pirates starter Zach Duke, and six straight Orioles reached base. Luke Scott delivered the most productive swing of the night with a two-run single, and Ty Wigginton brought home the other run with a hit to give Brad Bergesen a nice cushion before he took the mound for his first exhibition appearance.

In their last game of the exhibition season in their first year at Ed Smith Stadium, the Orioles walked away a winner thanks to two players who will be keys for any potential success in 2010. The Orioles beat the New York Mets 11-0 powered by third baseman and cleanup hitter Miguel Tejada's first homer of the spring, a grand slam in the fifth against Mets starter Jon Niese. Tejada had three RBIs this spring, before topping that total with one swing. He added another RBI — his fifth of the day — with a double in the sixth.

Kam Mickolio Pitcher Anyone need an outside linebacker or speed-rushing defensive end? Mickolio, 23, has the build to qualify at 6-9, 256 pounds. But the Orioles will use him as a right-handed pitcher. The Mariners selected Mickolio in the 18th round of the 2006 draft. The Montana native worked out of the bullpen last year and dominated in Double-A, going 3-1 with a 1.82 ERA and two saves in 18 games. He earned a promotion to Triple-A and went 3-3 with a 3.75 ERA and one save in 14 games, with 28 strikeouts in 24 innings.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Two bullpen sessions brought different levels of encouragement yesterday for two injured pitchers in Orioles camp. George Sherrill sounded optimistic about his strained right hamstring. Troy Patton became more discouraged about the tightness in his left shoulder - and perhaps his chances of pitching this year. Sherrill will throw on the side again tomorrow and could appear in his first exhibition game Monday. "I threw somewhere around 30 pitches and I felt fine," he said.

BOSTON - As if things weren't going badly enough for the Orioles, they now face health questions about their two most effective pitchers. Jeremy Guthrie, the team's only reliable starter, was scratched from making this afternoon's start against the Boston Red Sox because of a tired right shoulder. That will force Orioles manager Dave Trembley to start one of his relievers in the series finale and try to piece the game together. Jim Johnson, one of the Orioles' few reliable relievers and the team's closer with George Sherrill on the disabled list, is also experiencing right shoulder problems and will have a magnetic resonance imaging taken Friday.
