American League Championship Series Starting pitching: Getting a possible three starts from CC Sabathia is a big advantage, but the Yankees are shakier across the board than their paychecks suggest. Andy Pettitte is the swing man. The Yankees will win if both he and Sabathia pitch well, but Pettitte hasn't had back-to-back strong outings since before the All-Star break. The Yankees will be taking a huge gamble by giving A.J. Burnett a start in Game 4. C.J. Wilson, who moves into the No. 1 role for the Rangers with Cliff Lee unavailable until Game 3, has made an amazing transition from the bullpen.

It's easy to see why Texas began last night tied with the Boston Red Sox for the highest batting average in the American League at .279. Second baseman Ian Kinsler was third in the league with a .323 average, and outfielder Milton Bradley was sixth at .320. Kinsler also led the league in hits with 114, runs with 74 and total bases with 188, and ranked third in doubles with 27, tied for third in triples with four and was third in stolen bases with 23. Outfielder Josh Hamilton led the league in RBIs with 82 and was tied for second in home runs with 19. On the flip side, the Rangers had the highest team ERA at 4.91.

For the first time since April 26, the Orioles won a game without hitting a home run. On a cool Thursday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles completed a sweep of the Texas Rangers with a 5-2 victory, and not one of their 12 hits left the park. Entering Thursday, all 33 of the club's wins since May 1 had included a home run. The last time one didn't, the Orioles capitalized on consecutive errors to top the Kansas City Royals in extra innings, 3-2. That win, on April 26, improved their record to 12-11.

After Wednesday's game at Camden Yards was postponed -- forcing a doubleheader Thursday -- the Orioles needed both games against the Rangers, and quality starting pitching, to salvage a series tie. And the Baltimore bats were ready to partake in a slugfest early, while making history in the process. The Orioles hit home runs in their first three at-bats of the game -- getting solo shots from Ryan Flaherty, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis -- as part of a five-homer game in a 6-5 win in Game 1. It marked the first time in AL history that a team opened with three consecutive homers and the fourth time overall, the previous time coming when the Milwaukee Brewers did it Sept.

Luke Scott hit the 100th home run of his major league career and Ty Wigginton also homered, but Texas' power display proved a little more potent Sunday as the Rangers beat the Orioles, 6-4, at Camden Yards. Josh Hamilton and Vladimir Guerrero each slammed three-run homers off Orioles starter Kevin Millwood, who fell to 2-14 this season. Hamilton's blast came in the top of the first inning, after rain delayed the start of the game by 22 minutes. Four innings later, Guerrero connected to give Texas a 6-1 lead.

One reason the Rangers are looking to move Michael Young for starting pitching is Neftali Feliz apparently is headed back to the closer's role. Mark Lowe, who had been billed as a possible stopper, didn't help his cause Thursday when he walked the leadoff man with a two-run lead in the ninth. Feliz would welcome a return to the role he filled well enough to win Rookie of the Year. … Jon Garland's injury is a blow for the Dodgers, whose key is the depth of their five-man rotation.

Whispers Can the Angels catch the Rangers? They went 19-4 in the first 23 games outfielder Mike Trout started, including a 10-1 record in starts since he rejoined the roster in August. Trout was just named Baseball America's Minor League Player of the Year. … The Rangers went 12-11 in a stretch playing 23 games against teams with winning records. They believe that's when they would have collapsed if they were going to but aren't taking a playoff spot for granted, not with a season-ending series in Anaheim.

One impressive road series against a division leader does not wipe clean a disastrous first half for an Orioles club still in position to post the worst record in franchise history. But a four-game sweep of American League West-leading Texas, which culminated Sunday with a rookie who grew up as a Rangers fan pitching the Orioles to a 4-1 victory, sure eases the pain of grappling with baseball infamy. "You can't feel any happier for these guys. They are playing hard and come in here and win all four games on the road at this ballpark," Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel said.

Texas makes its first of two trips to Camden Yards this season, and the Rangers will be looking for a little revenge. The Orioles took two of three in Arlington, Texas, last week. As usual, the Rangers are crushing the ball. The team leads the majors in home runs, hitting 27 in its first 14 games. And the Rangers' batting average is toward the top of the American League as well, thanks in part to second baseman Ian Kinsler, who is in the top 10 in hits, total bases, doubles, RBIs and stolen bases.

Life has been so charmed for the Orioles in the past few days that on Thursday, they chased one of baseball's best pitchers with a weather report. They followed that up with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers without hitting one long ball - the Orioles' only homerless victory since April 26 - to secure a four-game sweep at Camden Yards for the first time since 2008. The offense was paced by a career-best, four-hit effort from a guy they released in April, allowing the Orioles to improve to 4-0 while playing one hitter short during Manny Machado's five-game suspension.

With three consecutive wins against the Texas Rangers, including Wednesday's come-from-behind, rain-soaked 6-4 victory, an obvious question has arisen. Manny Machado who? OK, maybe it's not really a burning sentiment at this point. But since the Orioles' Platinum Glove third baseman began serving his five-game suspension Monday -- leaving the Orioles roster short one player -- they haven't lost. “It's impressive, but it doesn't surprise me,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of his club's 3-0 record with 24 players.

Some four hours before Wednesday's game against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards, slumping Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was on the field doing early hitting work. Davis, who was hitless in his previous 19 at-bats heading into Wednesday, took swings off a batting tee under the supervision of manager Buck Showalter and hitting coach Jim Presley. Heading into Wednesday's game, Davis' average had dropped 62 points since May 23 to .205. From May 24 through Tuesday, he batted .145 with 50 strikeouts in 124 at-bats.

It's just beyond the halfway mark of the season, and the Orioles have entered into a predictable groove. Hit home runs and they might win. Don't hit them, and they'll almost certainly lose. The Orioles (44-39) have hit at least one home run in each of their 32 wins since May 1, and they've lost their last 11 games when they were held without one, according to Stats Inc. In Tuesday's game, they followed the script with three early homers in their 8-3 rout of the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards.

As the temperature rises every summer in Baltimore, so does the number of balls that carry out of Camden Yards. Hits similar to ones that landed at the warning track two weeks ago are now finding their way into the seats. And the Orioles lineup is built to take full advantage of such a summer swoon. The Orioles led the major leagues with 46 home runs in June, and they continued their power surge into July. They hit three homers, including Nelson Cruz's 26th of the season on his 34th birthday, in an 8-3 victory over the struggling Texas Rangers on Tuesday night in front of an announced 19,150.

The Chris Davis experiment at third base lasted just one day. The Orioles slugger will start at first base tonight in the second game of the series against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards, a day after he filled in for Manny Machado at the hot corner. Davis committed an error at third base Monday, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter decided against putting him there again tonight. Including tonight, Machado has four games remaining on his suspension for throwing the bat beyond third base against the Oakland Athletics on June 8. With Davis back at first base, Ryan Flaherty will play third base and Steve Pearce will start in left field.

Adam Dunn didn't change teams. Ditto Prince Fielder, Corey Hart, Jose Bautista, Brett Myers and Carlos Zambrano. But there were a flurry of deals in the 30 hours leading up to Saturday's deadline for non-waiver trades. All-Star-level names Roy Oswalt, Lance Berkman, Ryan Ludwick, Dan Haren, Miguel Tejada, Edwin Jackson, Kerry Wood and Matt Capps changed teams. Yet with even Manny Ramirez figuring prominently in some of the wild possibilities reported, there may have been a letdown that nothing totally crazy was done.

As Ubaldo Jimenez walked off the mound in the middle of the eighth inning of the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night, he was greeted by the home crowd at Camden Yards with a standing ovation. The reception hasn't always been as warm for Jimenez, who was signed to a club-record four-year, $50 million contract in February. He has heard his share of boos from the seating bowl after many disappointing and short outings. On Monday, Jimenez could stand tall, and he touched the bill of his cap to the crowd after delivering his deepest outing of the season and earning his first win in an Orioles uniform in front of the home crowd . “As a ballplayer, that's what you play for, to be there for the fans, to get a good [cheer]

Chris Davis hadn't made a start at third base since the last day of the 2011 season, so he didn't even have a third baseman's glove. But with regular third baseman Manny Machado beginning to serve his five-game suspension Monday, the club moved its starting first baseman across the diamond for the series opener against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards. The move gave the Orioles the chance to use both Steve Pearce and Delmon Young in the lineup. Including Monday, Davis has made 67 major league starts at third base, including 25 in 2011 - 17 of those coming with the Orioles after the club acquired him in a trade-deadline deal with Texas.
