The Orioles are billed as a young team, one that is going to take its lumps until the inexperienced talent peaks together. For such a squad, however, they have their share of free-agent decisions looming this offseason. Seven members of the 25-man roster can leave via free agency at season's end. It would have been 10, but the Orioles released Garrett Atkins and traded Miguel Tejada and Will Ohman this summer. There are no headliners on the list; in fact, the club can't receive top compensation for any of its pending free agents.

Julio Lugo said he never lost consciousness while sprawled out on the infield dirt at Angel Stadium in Sunday's first inning. He was just stunned. "It scares you when you get hit in the head," said Lugo, who was plunked behind his right ear on a pickoff throw by Los Angeles Angels starter Jered Weaver. "You've got to be careful. It just happened so fast, I didn't know what was going on. … I was stunned. " Lugo remained motionless for several moments -- with his hand draped on first base -- before sitting up. He eventually walked off on his own power and was replaced in the lineup by Jake Fox. Ty Wigginton moved to second base, and Fox played first for the rest of the game.

Moving uneasily in his wheelchair, Expedito "Pedro" Lugo smiled and offered his left hand to a visitor today at Hampstead Hill Middle School."My leg still shakes a little, too, but I feel good," he said. He smiled again. He spoke slowly and in broken English, and often through a Spanish translator."What do you call this," he asked, placing his right hand on his left shoulder. "Yes, my shoulder is stiff, too. But I am happy to be alive."And then he gave a thumbs-up.Lugo, 24, who in May was severely beaten with his own baseball bat by three teen-agers, had asked to speak to the students to thank them for their concern.

Julio Lugo's one-out single in the bottom of the 13th inning off former Oriole Lance Cormier scored Cesar Izturis and gave the Orioles an 11-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays before what remained of an announced 16,623 at Camden Yards. "I just wanted to go up there and hack at a pitch that I liked and hit it somewhere," Lugo said. "It felt great.

Concerned about their middle-infield depth, especially given second baseman Brian Roberts' precarious health situation, the Orioles acquired veteran Julio Lugo from the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday for a future player or cash considerations. Lugo, 34, is expected to start the season as the club's utility infielder and key insurance policy in case shortstop Cesar Izturis or Roberts, who has battled a herniated disk in his back this spring, needs a break. "I think it's prudent that we are going to have to pick our spots to make sure [Roberts]

The impetus of the move was to upgrade at the utility-infield spot and give the club some insurance for second baseman Brian Roberts, who is still ailing with a herniated disk in his back.

A recap of the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Red Sox last night: No no-no Making his second major league start on Sept. 1, Boston Red Sox rookie Clay Buchholz threw a no-hitter against the Orioles. He returned from Triple-A Pawtucket last night to face them again but didn't come close to duplicating his historic feat. Leadoff hitter Brian Roberts lined a double down the left-field line, stole third base and scored on Adam Jones' sacrifice fly. Buchholz also walked three batters in the inning and surrendered a run-scoring single to Melvin Mora.
