TORONTO - Catcher Caleb Joseph has raised his batting average 39 points over his last 10 games. And he also has given the club an unexpected power surge recently with a home run in each of his last three games. After hitting a solo home run in the Orioles' 9-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, Joseph said he made some recent adjustments at the plate that have helped him square up on pitches. “I've just been working on some mechanical things, and they're slowly starting to show their head in terms of results,” Joseph said.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Orioles center fielder Adam Jones wasn't worried at all that participating in the All-Star Game Home Run Derby would mess with his swing in the second half of the season. Jones said he seldom deviates from his swing-from-the-heels power stroke. And while he didn't win the Home Run Derby, he has put on quite a power display for the Orioles since returning for the start of the second half. In Monday night's series opener against the Los Angeles Angels, Jones hit a pair of two-run homers off rookie right-hander Matt Shoemaker for his fifth career multihomer game, providing the Orioles with all the offense they needed in a 4-2 victory in front of an announced 39,028 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

PHILADELPHIA -- Johnny Damon's two-run triple in the eighth inning helped New York overcome Ryan Howard's two homers and seven RBIs in the Yankees' 9-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies last night. Jason Giambi and Jorge Posada homered and Bernie Williams went 5-for-5 for the Yankees, who ended a three-game skid despite another subpar outing from Mike Mussina. Howard hit his 24th and 25th homers to tie the injured Albert Pujols for the major league lead and had a tiebreaking two-run triple in the seventh.

Cal Ripken continued a home run barrage last night that began in late May when manager Davey Johnson was toying with the idea of moving the shortstop to third base.Ripken isn't going anywhere.Since that trip to Seattle, Ripken has gone deep and driven in runs at a remarkable rate. He's now on pace to put up numbers similar to his 1991 MVP season in which he hit 34 homers, drove in 114 runs and batted .323.The world's most durable baseball player was at it again last night in consecutive game 2,223.

CLEVELAND - The Orioles and Cleveland Indians took their time yesterday deciding what eventually became the Indians' 12-11 win in 13 innings at Jacobs Field. Before they were done, Indians center fielder Kenny Lofton screamed his return as a base-stealer and Orioles first baseman Chris Richard suggested his time is near with his new organization. The pitching-thin marathon was played in miniature between Richard and Lofton. Lofton ended it with a one-out home run off Mike Trombley in the 13th inning after stealing a club-record five bases in the first seven innings.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - There isn't much reason for Fernando Lunar to check the lineup card when entering the Orioles' clubhouse, unless overcome by idle curiosity or choosing to brush up on his reading. Chances are he'll be listed near the bottom, among the reserves. Sometimes, it's worth taking a glance. When manager Mike Hargrove broke out his 32nd different lineup in 35 games last night, Lunar was in it. It might have seemed insignificant at the time, but not after Lunar began an eighth-inning rally with a single and scored the go-ahead run in a 9-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Tropicana Field, capping his most productive game as an Oriole.

Steve Clevenger wasn't sent down to Triple-A Norfolk because the Orioles weren't convinced his bat belonged in the majors. But the 28-year-old Pigtown native is trying to leave no doubt on that front this month with the Tides. Clevenger is batting .356/.392/.466 with eight doubles and 15 RBIs in 20 games with the International League affiliate, and his average is down from above .400 a week ago. Not including Monday afternoon's game, Clevenger has just three hits in the last week.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Despite the best efforts of Texas Rangers slugger Adrian Beltre, who seems to be a thorn in the side of the Orioles every time the teams meet, the Orioles emerged from Wednesday's back-and-forth game with their fourth straight win. The Orioles' 6-5 victory over the Rangers earned a series win here in Texas and guaranteed that they would complete their three-city, 10-game road trip with at least a .500 record. The Orioles (30-27) have scored 27 runs with 50 hits over their last four games.

MILWAUKEE -- Through the Orioles' ups and downs this season -- and there have been plenty already -- there has been one constant: Nelson Cruz. Boy, has that guy been tremendous. Cruz hit two more homers last night, and he now leads the major leagues with 19. He has 48 RBIs, the most in the American League and just one shy of the Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton for the major league lead. He's batting .306 -- 10th in the AL -- with a .376 on-base percentage and an awesome .663 slugging percentage.

Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz played the past eight seasons with the Texas Rangers, hitting the first 157 home runs of his career. When his free-agent market seemed to be crashing this winter, it was rumored that Cruz would simply return to Arlington, Texas, where he has batted .294 (26 points higher than his .268 career average) and blasted 92 home runs in 400 career games. Instead, the Orioles jumped in and grabbed Cruz on a one-year, $8 million deal and brought him to another place that has seen its share of home runs over the years: Camden Yards.

CHICAGO -- Mike Bordick, the Orioles' unlikeliest slugger, has quietly added another distinction to a breakout April. Two days after the fact, it was learned that the Orioles' shortstop has broken the 31-year-old franchise record for April RBIs. The feat occurred Tuesday night in the third inning of the Orioles' 12-6 win over the Chicago White Sox. Bordick lofted a sacrifice fly to right field that scored Rich Amaral and gave him 25 RBIs, one more than Frank Robinson collected in 1969.

Paul Winterling doesn't resemble Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Barry Bonds or any other great baseball slugger. However, any of those famous home run hitters would have been proud to have the once-in-a-lifetime afternoon Winterling enjoyed for Johns Hopkins University in Chestertown against Washington College last week. Winterling had two grand slams and a three-run homer for 11 RBIs, and finished 4-for-6. It's a collegiate baseball player living out the dream of any hitter, and getting lucky enough to have the bases loaded ahead of him not once but twice.

The typically sound Orioles defense didn't help starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez on Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Royals at Camden Yards. Center fielder Adam Jones dropped a fly ball on the first play of the game that led to an unearned run, and the Orioles botched a rundown play that opened the door for a two-run fifth inning in the 9-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals in front of an announced 38,368.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates tied, 7-7, in 10 innings Sunday afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium after each team had a home run in the ninth. Reigning National League Most Valuable Player Andrew McCutchen hit a solo homer off minor leaguer Oliver Drake to put the Pittsburgh Pirates ahead, 7-6. Orioles prospect Jonathan Schoop then tied the game in the bottom of the inning with a solo shot in front of a sellout crowd of 8,064 at Ed Smith Stadium. Schoop's home run, which went to center field, was the fifth overall in the game on an afternoon that was challenging for pitchers with the wind blowing out to left field.
