TORONTO -- It lasted 4 hours, 25 minutes, and featured two teams that used a total of 15 pitchers and 28 position players and combined to go 5-for-37 with runners in scoring position and leave 27 men on base. When it was over, when the Orioles had finished off the Toronto Blue Jays for an 8-6 win in 12 grueling innings at Rogers Centre, second baseman Brian Roberts tried to put his team's first series victory since mid-August into perspective. There was just one problem. Orioles@Yankees Tonight, 7:05, MASN2, 105.7 FM Starters: Daniel Cabrera (9-16, 5.37)

Chris Dickerson received the start in center field Tuesday night against the Yankees, and through his first two at-bats, he's making the most out of the opportunity. Dickerson has hit two solo homers off Yankees starter Phil Hughes for his first multi-homer game of his major league career. Dickerson spent the past two seasons with the Yankees, hitting just three homers in a 64 at-bats. Now he has three homers -- all in his past three starts -- in 33 at bats with the Orioles this season In the third inning, Dickerson took a 3-2 fastball over the outer half of the plate into the center field bleachers.

One bad pitch Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie was down 3-0 after the New York Yankees' first four at-bats Friday night, thanks to Alex Rodriguez's three-run homer. Guthrie didn't allow a run after that, giving up seven hits and two walks in six innings. His season-high eight strikeouts were one fewer than he has had in his past three games combined. A little shove The Yankees ran, or pushed, their way out of a potential big inning in the fourth. Nick Swisher led off with a double and moved to third on a ground out. He then wandered off third to talk to third base coach Rob Thomson and Guthrie alertly threw to Melvin Mora for an attempted pickoff.

Luckily, they don't trot out the old “defense wins championship” cliché as much in baseball circles - but there's no denying there have been teams who improve their 'D' and then find increased success . So, as we continue to poke and prod at the Orioles' competition in the American League East, it's worth a quick check of how these teams have been addressing their glovework in the offseason. Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com wrote this week about the propensity of John Farrell (and his third base-infielders coach Brian Butterfield)

HUFF IS GRAND Aubrey Huff leaned a little to his left, as if he would somehow be able to dictate that the ball stayed fair. But he needn't have worried. Huff's third-inning grand slam off Yankees starter Jeff Karstens landed a couple of rows to the left of the foul pole, settling into the upper deck in right field for his third career grand slam. It also was his ninth home run of the season and his third in 10 games after going 26 games without one. He finished 2-for-3 with five RBIs, one shy of his career high.

The Indians have come back to the pack because Shin-Soo Choo and Carlos Santana failed to pick up the slack when Travis Hafner was sidelined. They entered the weekend 8-13 since Hafner went out, averaging 1.4 runs in the 13 losses. They promoted rookie Cord Phelps to play second base because Orlando Cabrera is hitting .213 since May1. … Mets President Sandy Alderson, a former first lieutenant who spent eight months in Vietnam, is making a big impression by taking time to visit Veterans Administration hospitals during his baseball travels.

You might have forgotten the year Nate McLouth won a gold glove. It was the same year he led the National League in doubles. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette apparently didn't, and his team wouldn't likely be chasing the American League East lead if he didn't take a waiver on the 30-year-old veteran outfielder. Much has been made about McLouth and how quickly he became a part of the Orioles' everyday lineup -- and expecially how he suddenly became a regular option in the No. 3 spot in the batting order.

It was a bit of a surprise, although considering how well Joe Saunders pitched in his last win-or-go-home outing, maybe it shouldn't have been. Orioles manager Buck Showalter announced after Wednesday's game that the veteran lefty would get the ball to start Thursday against the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the American League Division Series. The choice was between Saunders, 31, and 24-year-old right-hander Chris Tillman, and Showalter made his choice based on experience and what Saunders did in his last start, allowing just one run in 5 2/3 innings Friday to give the Orioles a victory in the one-game wild-card playoff in Texas.

NEW YORK - The Orioles have done the improbable so many times this year that it would be foolhardy to assume that the odds are now stacked so high against them that they cannot get out of Yankee Stadium with their title hopes alive. They have certainly created another situation that calls for more than the usual dose of Oriole Magic. They need to pick themselves off the grass after another painful pinstriped loss and win tonight's Game 4 just to earn the right to stare down Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia in a climactic Division Series-deciding game Friday.

One of the biggest stories of this offseason had been what the New York Yankees weren't doing this year. But so much for that. After standing silently for the past 10 weeks, the Yankees struck with the biggest shock-and-awe move of the offseason. In a matter of hours Friday night, the Yankees made two high-impact moves to restructure their pitching staff, first obtaining 22-year-old right-hander Michael Pineda in a trade with the Mariners for highly touted catcher Jesus Montero, and then signing free-agent right-hander Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year, $10-million deal.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman rarely yields to public pressure, but he seldom has been backed into a corner as badly as it now seems after he failed to land Cliff Lee or persuade Andy Pettitte to return. The Yankees were 10th in the American League with a 4.35 ERA from their starters a year ago, finishing ahead of only the Tigers, Indians, Orioles and Royals, and that included 286 innings from Pettitte and Javier Vazquez , who left as a free agent. No good-bet veterans have been added, so imagine the horror if CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes or A.J. Burnett stumbles in spring training.

Given the wear and tear on credit cards everywhere this time of year, it's easy to think you can always buy happiness. But spending isn't always the solution to your problems, even if you're the Yankees. With Cliff Lee having turned down $132 million and Andy Pettitte seemingly headed for retirement, the Yankees are stunningly short on starting pitching. They are counting on Phil Hughes and A.J. Burnett behind CC Sabathia , with rookie Ivan Nova and journeyman Sergio Mitre the next-best options.
