- Ty Wigginton and Garrett Atkins homered Saturday, but the New York Yankees roughed up Jeremy Guthrie in the early innings and scored a 5-3 victory at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Wigginton hit a two-run shot off Yankees starter Javier Vazquez for his second homer of the spring and Atkins hit his first off Alfredo Aceves, but that was not enough to keep the Orioles from losing for the eighth time in 10 games. The Yankees batted around in the first inning to score three runs on five hits off Guthrie, who settled down enough to work through 3 1/3 innings.

BACK TALK Several Orioles - and Red Sox, for that matter - were clearly not pleased with the strike zone of plate umpire Doug Eddings. Leadoff man Brian Roberts was particularly perturbed by two calls in his first at-bat and one during his second. In the latter at-bat, Roberts carried on a heated conversation with Eddings before Orioles manager Dave Trembley finally came out of the dugout both to protect Roberts and get in his say. SLUMP BREAKER What better way to break an 0-for-17 slump than to lay down a bunt against a tough pitcher like Josh Beckett?

Six Orioles pitchers threw eight shutout innings against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, but it was center fielder Jeff Salazar who should be credited with the save. Salazar, a veteran signed to play center in Triple-A Norfolk, made several strong running catches in the Orioles' 3-1 win before an announced 8,232 at Hammond Stadium, including an over-the-back snag of a soaring fly ball by Michael Cuddyer to end the first inning. Salazar's grab was the key play that settled starter David Hernandez, who threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing five hits and walking one. "I told Salazar, 'As long as you catch the ones going over your head, we'll be OK,' " Hernandez joked.

How it happened: The Orioles didn't give Brad Bergesen much support -- the team's only two runs coming on a second-inning homer by Ty Wigginton, his 10th home run of the season -- but the starting pitcher didn't need it. Bergesen pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings on the way to his second victory of the season -- and second in two starts since returning from his brief demotion to Triple-A Norfolk. Reliever Will Ohman struck out Jim Thome to record the third out of the seventh inning.

A pitcher who could have possibly replaced Jim Johnson as the Orioles' closer came off the board on Thursday when the Boston Red Sox signed former St. Louis Cardinals reliever Edward Mujica to a two-year, $9.5-million deal. The signing is like a punch to the gut for two reasons. First, Mujica appeared to be one of the best value options on the free-agency market. He was projected to cost in the $4-6 million range annually, and he signed a deal toward the lower half of that estimate.

With news that the Orioles have agreed to terms with Japanese lefty Tsuyoshi Wada, that they are pursuing Taiwanese lefty Chen Wei-Yin and that they attempted but failed to sign Korean Chong Tae-Hyon, it's obvious the club's international program is stepping up to a new level under new executive vice president Dan Duquette. There needs to be some caution here, though. The three players mentioned above - and Koji Uehara, who was signed by the Orioles before the 2009 season - are all established pros.

There's roughly 80 minutes left before the nonwaiver trade deadline expires, and the Orioles have not yet made a move. I don't think that's necessarily indicative of what will occur in the next hour-plus. I talked to one guy today who joked that Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette should be wearing a watch that keeps track of seconds -- because that's how he often plays these deadlines. The trade for Bud Norris last year on this day went down at the last minute, so it would be no shock if an 11th-hour deal like that happens again.

Each morning, Monday through Friday, I'll hook you up with some reading material to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday -- that way I'll have an excuse to do the same at the start of mine. Running it back: With the help of a pair of home runs from catcher Jake Fox , the Orioles smacked around the Pirates, 13-3, on Thursday. Matt Wieters went 4-for-5 in the win . ... Coach Fang Mitchell rejected an offer to remain at Coppin State , saying the contract was "unacceptable.

CHICAGO - -After his game-ending strikeout of the Tampa Bay Rays' Evan Longoria with the tying run on third base Thursday, Orioles closer Jim Johnson punched his fist into his glove. It was a rare show of emotion from Johnson, who vowed to treat the closer role no different from his previous one as setup man. It also was further proof that it will be easier said than done. "I was pumped up, definitely," said Johnson, who earned his fifth save in the Orioles' 8-7 victory. "It was a big win. It wasn't just for me, it was the way the whole game played out. We were behind, we came back.
