SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hit his first mammoth home run of the spring on Monday, a drive off the videoboard above the center field fence that temporarily gave the Orioles the lead in a game they would eventually lose, 9-2, to the Minnesota Twins at Ed Smith Stadium. Davis, who led the majors with 53 home runs and 138 RBI last year, broke a 1-1 tie with the shot off right-hander Trevor May, who was rated by Baseball America this year as the Twins' eight-ranked organizational prospect.

As the Orioles enter the final month of the regular season, their accomplishments are starting to mount along with their win total. They currently have the second-best record in baseball and a nine-game lead in the American League East division. And as the calendar turns to September, they even can claim a magic number of 19 to clinch their first division title in 17 years. Meanwhile, the Orioles continue to let their bats lead the way, hitting three homers - including a grand slam from shortstop J.J. Hardy that capped a seven-run sixth inning - in a 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon in front of an announced 40,905 at Camden Yards.

The Orioles bounced back from a 6-0 deficit to win, 9-6, in 10 innings Friday night against the Minnesota Twins. Among the highlights was Jim Johnson breaking Randy Myers' club record with his 35th consecutive regular-season save (dating back to last year). Here's some of the postgame chatter from the clubhouse: Johnson on his record-setting 35 th consecutive save: “I wasn't thinking about it obviously. I was just thinking about watching us chip away. I thought it was a great team win. Everybody kind of chipped in. … Good effort out of the bullpen, guys had great at-bats and we ended up pulling it out.” Johnson on whether breaking Myers consecutive saves' record means something special: “It's not really anything I'm focused on. It's great, but our ultimate goal is our team record at the end of the year and going further than that.

First baseman Steve Pearce said the right abdominal strain that forced him out before the fourth inning of Friday's 9-1 win over the Minnesota Twins was more uncomfortable than painful, and he hopes he won't have a lengthy absence from the Orioles' lineup. He'll know more after an MRI scheduled for 9:30 this morning. “I'm not all that concerned,” Pearce said after the game. “It's not affecting me during anything else. I'm not in pain doing [anything], even when I swing. I just feel something there, and so I just want to get ahead of it. Hopefully, I can get back and get back pretty soon.” Pearce said he first felt discomfort Thursday and thought it might be a cramp.

Dave Boswell, a former Minnesota Twins pitcher who led the American League in winning percentage in 1966 and ended his career with the Orioles, died of a heart attack Monday at his Joppatowne home. He was 67. Born in Baltimore, he was a 1963 graduate of Calvert Hall College High School. A Baltimore Sun article in 1967 said that in his senior year there, "he was followed by a pack of major league scouts. " According to news accounts, he was whipped into condition by his father, Buck Boswell, a Baltimore steelworker, and an uncle who had played for the International League Orioles.

What sandlot baseball player wouldn't want to be coached by a former major-leaguer? And a World Series champion to boot? The Maryland Red Dogs, an 11-and-underAYRAtravel team, count themselves as one lucky team to have former Minnesota Twins second baseman Steve Lombardozzias their leader. Lombardozzi, 41, moved to Columbia four years ago to be closer to his brothers, who were living in the area. Now the 1987 World Series star spends his time not only with wife, Jill, 14-year-old daughter, Toni, and 11-year-old son, Stevie, and with his advertising specialty business, Double Play Promotions, but with the Red Dogs as well.

Oakland Athletics closer Jim Johnson struggled once again Wednesday, but the offense bailed him out in extra innings in a 7-4 win over the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. With a 4-2 lead entering the bottom of the ninth, Johnson allowed a single to the Twins' Jason Kubel and walked Kurt Suzuki before getting the first out. The former Orioles closer then walked Aaron Hicks to load the bases and gave up an RBI single to Eduardo Escobar before being removed from the game. Right-hander Dan Otero entered for Johnson and gave up a sacrifice fly to Minnesota's Brian Dozier to tie the game, 4-4. Otero pitched the final 2 2/3 innings to pick up the win. Johnson's ERA rose to 18.90 after his third rough outing in five appearances this season.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Bud Norris pitched into the sixth inning in his last Grapefruit League tune-up before the regular season, but the Orioles dropped a 4-1 decision to the Minnesota Twins. Norris lasted 5 1/3 innings, giving up three runs (two earned), seven hits and a walk while striking out two batters. “Felt really strong. A little windy, so you really have to control your body out there,” Norris said. “I felt I did a really good job of pounding the strike zone.” For the spring, the Orioles' expected No. 5 starter posted an impressive 2.65 ERA in 17 innings over five spring games.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Wei-Yin Chen became the first Oriole to go four innings this spring and Henry Urrutia's first homer helped contribute to a 2-2 tie with the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles took a 2-1 lead into the ninth, but reliever Troy Patton gave up a solo homer to former Orioles' farmhand Brandon Waring. Because the Twins also had a split squad against Tampa in Port Charlotte on Friday, they didn't have enough pitching to extend the game and the sides agreed to the tie. Chen pitched well, allowing three hits, one walk and one run while striking out three and throwing 60 pitches in four innings.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Zach Britton hasn't been told yet that he will pitch out of the bullpen if he makes the Opening Day roster, but all signs point to the Orioles left-hander heading in that direction. After a dominant one-inning performance Wednesday, when he needed just seven pitches to retire the Philadelphia Phillies in order, Britton is scheduled to pitch Friday on the road against the Minnesota Twins. That would be his fourth outing in 10 days, and he hasn't pitched more than two innings in any game.

SARASOTA, Fla. - One true indicator of the seriousness of a baseball injury is how those in the dugout react when the potentially hurt player returns from the field. When Orioles' left-hander Zach Britton came into the visitors' dugout Wednesday night after taking a sharp liner off his right glove hand, Triple-A Norfolk manager Ron Johnson asked to see Britton's glove. "I heard it screaming," Johnson deadpanned while others laughed. So, yes, Britton, is fine - though he admits he was frightened for about 30 seconds after Minnesota Twins slugger Josh Willingham hit a scorching comebacker that deflected off Britton's glove and wrist.
