OAKLAND, CALIF. - Any question as to whether Oakland Athletics fans had forgotten about Manny Machado's bat toss and confrontation with A's third baseman Josh Donaldson last month were answered quickly Friday night in the Orioles' series opener here.  Oakland fans booed Machado every opportunity they got from pregame introductions to the first time he ran out to his position at third base in the bottom of the first inning. When Machado threw out Yoenis Cespedes to end the bottom of the third, the crowd booed from the time he fielded the ball all the way into the dugout.

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....

Before Friday night's game against the Oakland Athletics, Orioles manager Buck Showalter talked about how difficult it is to get a reliever back into a routine after the All-Star break. “It's always a tough time because you have bullpen guys who have had six, seven days off, and you're trying to get everybody back in the flow,” Showalter said. “It's hard. You don't even have this in the start of the season because you try to make sure everybody's got a couple days off, but not too many days off. This is always a tough time for bullpens around baseball, getting them in the flow.

Sometimes, when you write for a newspaper, you can't always get certain specific game details into a game story because of space constraints, deadlines or story angle. That happened Sunday afternoon, when the Orioles rallied in the ninth inning on an Adam Jones homer off the great Mariano Rivera and the embattled Jim Johnson closed the door to secure the 2-1 victory. What happened in the ninth inning became my story angle for Monday's newspaper - and some other game details that were included in the original online story had to be cut. So one of the better defensive plays made this year wasn't mentioned in the final version of my game story because it had no real bearing on the outcome of the Orioles' win. In the sixth inning, Yankees third baseman Luis Cruz hit a ball that was tailing down the third base line.

With 19 days remaining until Manny Machado's 21st birthday, Elias Sports Bureau and its number-crunching competitors are running out of time to come up with age-20 stats for the Orioles' prodigious third baseman. Here's the latest: If Machado, who has 99 hits this season, gets his 100th tonight in Detroit, he will tie Ty Cobb (100 hits in 71 games in 1907) and Alex Rodriguez (ditto in 1996) for the third-fewest number of games to reach 100 hits in a season by a player under 21, according to Elias.

Before today's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Orioles manager Buck Showalter got on top of his pregame soapbox and talked about how most barehanded plays don't need to be made. He reminisced about his days as an analyst at ESPN and about how he thought the network too often fell in love with a barehanded play that was more style than substance. But third baseman Manny Machado's ninth-inning barehanded throwout of  Desmond Jennings in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay wasn't one of those plays.

After seeing Orioles third baseman Manny Machado crumble to the ground beyond the first base bag with an apparent left leg injury on Monday afternoon, some of Machado's teammates reacted on Twitter following the Orioles' 5-4 walk-off loss in Tampa Bay. While Machado was running out a ball in the top of the seventh inning in Tampa Bay, it appeared that Machado's left knee buckled and gave way as his foot came across the outside of the first-base bag....

The Orioles four All Stars - Chris Davis, Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado -- met with the media before Monday's game. After talking about their All-Star selections, the group was asked about the 21-year-old Machado's defense and, specifically, the play he made Sunday in New York in which a grounder kicked off his glove into foul territory. Machado grabbed the ball and, with his momentum taking him six, eight, 10 feet into foul territory, turned and, on his back foot, threw a laser to first for the out.  The quartet was asked whether that was Machado's best defensive play as a big leaguer - he joined the club last August - and the press conference turned into a mini-roundtable symposium on Machado's glove.

I would want a decent-sized break in the middle if I played baseball every day from March to October too, but since I don't, I can fairly say that this week is unbearable and I'm glad sports are back tonight. You can tell how little has happened in the past day by all the analysis found in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's sports headlines. - The Orioles open the second half with three games in Oakland, the team that was responsible for Manny Machado's reputation taking a hit but ultimately might have also sparked his turnaround this year.

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.

I was doing a radio segment on 105.7 The Fan on Thursday night when host Terry Ford asked me an interesting question. And since we encourage recycling here at Connolly's, I thought I'd drop it on you. I was asked which Oriole did I think would improve in the second half. I was allowed only one answer. And there are several candidates. Chris Davis is an obvious one. It'd be really surprising if he hit under .200 all season. But he also has 15 homers and 48 RBIs. So I'm not picking him. You'd have to think Ubaldo Jimenez should be better than the 3-8 record, 4.52 ERA and league-leading 60 walks issued in 99 2/3 innings pitched in the first half.

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.

The Orioles have reached the All-Star break, and Caleb Joseph can't believe he's still on the team. Joseph, who made his major league debut May 7, has emerged as the regular catcher in the lineup since Matt Wieters went on the disabled list in early May. Since the Orioles traded for Nick Hundley on May 24, Joseph has played in 11 more games than the seven-year veteran. "It's pretty fast-moving," Joseph said. "Before you know it, you're in the big leagues, and then it's the All-Star break, and you're still in the big leagues.

Are you an Orioles fan? What about an Orioles fan who enjoys team-related salsa with your chips? Or are you part of the even smaller subset that prefers to buy your team-related salsa in person, as opposed to over the scary Internet? Diehard player-affiliated salsa aficionados, your day has come. Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will be formally unveiling his Machado's Salsa brand on Tuesday afternoon at 12:45 p.m. at the Pikesville Giant, located at 3757 Old Court Road - the rare election day media event that will be worth attending, I'm sure.

Orioles infield prospects Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop played in the MLB Futures Game on Sunday night. Schoop, a second baseman, had a single in his only at-bat as the United States team beat the World, 6-4. Machado, one of the top prospects in baseball, went 0-for-2, but he made a fine defensive play at shortstop. Unfortunately, I can't embed the video because Major League Baseball won't allow me, but you can check out his sweet scoop and throw here . While you're at it, here is video of him taking batting pratice beforehand.

By definition, it was the New York Yankees who were in  pinstripes at Camden Yards for the Orioles' 3-2 win in 10 innings Friday night . Their fans, as always, were out in abundance, making up at least half of the sellout crowd. But these weren't the dominating, punch-you-in-the-gut Bronx Bombers of old. This Yankees club was making its 2014 debut in the city with no Mariano Rivera, no CC Sabathia and no Alex Rodriguez. Its centerpiece for so many seasons, shortstop Derek Jeter, is 40 and retiring at the end of this year.

It has become fairly obvious that the team that makes the playoffs out of the American League East - and there probably will be only one - will be the team that best weathers what has been a division race influenced by an unusual amount of injuries. So far, that team is the Orioles, who have tiptoed through a crowded training room to reach the All-Star break at the top of the standings. They opened the season with their Platinum Glove third baseman, Manny Machado, on the disabled list and have lost one of the top all-around catchers in the game for the duration.
