Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't have his best outing Sunday night against the New York Yankees, but he still extended his remarkable streak of consistency that has now lasted more than three months as he has solidified his spot as the club's ace. After allowing one run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 3-2, walk-off victory over the Yankees, Tillman has recorded 19 straight starts of allowing three earned runs or fewer. That mark ties him with Milt Pappas (1965)

Left-hander Joe Saunders, who started the Orioles' victory in the American League wild-card game two years ago, rejoined the club Monday in a much different role. The Orioles, who purchased Saunders' contract from Triple-A Norfolk as rosters expanded at the beginning of September, plan to use him as a multiple-inning reliever. “It feels awesome,” Saunders said. “It's been a winding road this year, for sure. It's good to be back, good to be contributing again.” The Orioles -- Saunders' third organization this year -- signed him to a minor league deal Aug. 5 with the goal of converting him to a reliever for the stretch run. Saunders was released by the Texas Rangers in July after going 0-5 with a 7.26 ERA, and he was released by the Kansas City Royals later that month after four starts with their Triple-A club.

The Orioles scored just four runs in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field over the weekend. But the club's power was on display with its return to Camden Yards on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orioles have hit five home runs on their way to a 9-1 lead in the eighth inning. Trailing, 1-0, Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce hit back-to-back homers in the third inning. The Orioles then hit three consecutive home runs in their six-run fifth inning.

PITTSBURGH -- After struggling for the early part of this season and dealing with an oblique injury, Chris Davis has now hit four home runs in his past 13 at-bats. As I'm sure you know by now, three came in his final three at-bats Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. A three-homer game by an Orioles player has happened 20 times in modern-day club history (and four times by the St. Louis Browns), according to home run historian David Vincent. An Orioles player has never hit four in one game.

SARASOTA, Fla. - This morning we'll see Nelson Cruz put on an Orioles uniform for the first time. The club is holding a 9:30 a.m. news conference to introduce Cruz, who signed a one-year $8-million deal. After the conference, he will participate in his first workout. Cruz seems to be pretty happy. He already has his locker nameplate from the Orioles clubhouse as his Twitter profile background. As for minor league outfielder Josh Hart, the team's sandwich pick last season, here's hoping he did his homework last night.

For the first time in franchise history, three Orioles players received the Silver Slugger award, given annually to the top offensive player at each position in each league. Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, center fielder Adam Jones and shortstop J.J. Hardy each won the award, announced Wednesday on MLB Network. The Orioles' three Silver Slugger awards this year were the most by any major league team. Former Orioles designate hitter Aubrey Huff was the last Oriole to win a Silver Slugger, in 2008.

With another win Thursday night against the Texas Rangers, Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez continued his quietly consistent streak of pitching performances. Gonzalez allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out four in the Orioles' 3-1 victory at Camden Yards . It was the 12th time in his 16 outings that he put together a quality start, and his seventh straight, the longest streak by an Oriole this year. During that streak, he's 5-1 with a 2.49 ERA in 47 innings.

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel will highlight five statistics that really mean something for the Orioles. .341 -- Matt Wieters' career batting average against the Tampa Bay Rays. Orioles catcher Matt Wieters has been slumping over the past 10 days, and his season batting average dipped below .200 during the New York Yankees series over the weekend. But if there is a sure bet to get him out of his slump, it might be playing the Tampa Bay Rays. Wieters hit a solo home run in Tuesday night's 5-4 win. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Wieters is batting .341 with 12 home runs and 40 RBIs in 60 career games against the Rays.

We will see history tonight if Chris Davis, who had four home runs in his first four games, hits another homer. If the hottest hitter in baseball puts another out of the ballpark, he will become the first player in major league history to hit a home run in each of his team's first five games of the season. As we wait for his next at-bat here at Camden Yards, here are some Chris Davis facts, courtesy of the Orioles. --- In his first four games of 2013, Davis had more RBIs (16) than 17 major league teams and at least twice as many RBI as the Marlins (8)

Typical Brooks. Everybody who was anybody in Orioles history showed up to honor him when the Orioles unveiled his statue on the center field plaza Saturday at Camden Yards, and all he wanted to do was thank everybody else and turn his ceremony into a celebration of this year's amazing, surprising, contending team. “How 'bout them O's?" he said, to a huge ovation from the thousands of fans who crowded around the plaza and lined every terrace and exposed walkway with a view of the last bronze in the Legends Celebration Series.
