Catching a break Trying to hold a one-run lead in the final two innings, the Orioles got more steady relief work from Jim Johnson and George Sherrill, along with a favorable call from first base umpire Larry Vanover. With one out and nobody on in the eighth, Phillies leadoff man Jimmy Rollins hit a chopper down the first base line. Ty Wigginton fielded it but with his momentum carrying him in another direction, he whiffed on the tag of Rollins. Vanover thought otherwise and called the runner out. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel was ejected from the game for arguing the call.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who had been in Sarasota, Fla., rehabbing from hip surgery, has rejoined the team and will travel with the O's throughout the postseason. “This is something that I've wanted to experience for a long time,” Roberts said. “It doesn't take a genius to know it would feel a lot better on the field, but at the same time, I'm extremely happy for the organization and the city and the fans and the Angelos family and everyone who's worked so hard through so many struggles the last 15 years to experience this.” Roberts, who had surgery Aug. 2 to repair a labrum tear, said he's taken a significant step in his rehab.

It was shaping up to be a typical Kevin Millwood start. The Orioles made a ghastly Orioles' defensive error on a botched rundown in the first inning. Millwood compounded the gaffe by allowing three runs as his first-inning struggles continued. By the time the middle innings rolled around at PETCO Park, the game was tied and Millwood's pitch count was rising. But finally, the Orioles reversed the script for their hard luck veteran starter, erasing a two-run deficit before barely hanging on to a 5-4 victory over the San Diego Padres in front of an announced 28,138.

Getting robbed The Orioles tried to score in the sixth inning yesterday with the St. Louis Cardinals leading 4-0 but were stopped at every turn. Kevin Millar led off with a line drive that a diving Aaron Miles caught. Adam Stern reached on an infield hit, but Tagg Bozied denied Brian Roberts with a lunging stop of a hard smash along the first base line. Bozied scurried to his feet and got the out, and the Orioles eventually lost, 5-1. The lone run It took until the eighth inning. Brandon Sing, summoned from the minor league camp so the Orioles would have enough bodies, hit a home run off Ryan Franklin to prevent a shutout.

NEW YORK - - George Sherrill wants to be part of the nucleus that leads the Orioles back into contention, not a trade chip that brings a couple of more pieces to accelerate that process. But Sherrill, whose name has factored prominently in trade rumors both before and after the Orioles acquired him from the Seattle Mariners in February 2008 in the Erik Bedard deal, knows he has no say in the matter. "For sure, I want to be here," said Sherrill, who entered Monday's series opener against the New York Yankees with 20 saves and a 2.35 ERA. "The Mariners are starting to have a little bit of success.

At the outset of this season, one of the Orioles' primary goals was to identify younger players for the future. The losing record and last-place finish would be tolerable if proper building blocks were established. So the frustration level of Orioles manager Dave Trembley boiled over the past few weeks, not because of the continual losses, but because borderline major leaguers were getting ample opportunities and few were seizing them. Yesterday, after the Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins, 7-3, to avoid a home sweep, Trembley saw some glimpses of what could be. "I think today was a game that gives us something to be excited about for the future," Trembley said.

Orioles designated hitter Luke Scott will have a magnetic resonance imaging performed on his left shoulder Monday to determine the severity of an injury that forced him out of the game and into a sling. Scott hurt the shoulder sliding headfirst back into first base on Joba Chamberlain's pickoff throw in the first inning, and he acknowledged after the game that he's concerned the injury could keep him out for an extended period. "It hurt to the point where I can't swing a bat," said Scott, whose first-inning single raised his average to .303 to go along with five homers and 15 RBIs.

MIAMI - -Though shortstop Cesar Izturis is probably at least two weeks from coming off the disabled list, his return could create an interesting roster decision for the Orioles. It was assumed that Oscar Salazar would be designated for assignment to make room for Izturis, but the veteran infielder has proved his worth offensively since his promotion from Triple-A Norfolk. Salazar is 7-for-16 with an RBI overall, and 5-for-8 during the past six games, all of which he has entered as a pinch hitter.
