It took five games, but the new video replay system finally debuted at Oriole Park on Saturday night when Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons challenged a ruling by umpire Chris Conroy that Edwin Encarnacion was pulled off the bag on a close play at first base. Orioles second baseman Steve Lombardozzi dropped a bunt toward third base and Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison pounced on the ball and hurried his throw to first base. The ball sailed high and Encarnacion appeared to lose contact with the bag when he extended to catch it, but it appeared he might have recontacted the bag before Lombardozzi got there.

Amid mounting fan frenzy, the Orioles began cashing in this summer on the team's runaway success. Capitalizing on the expected demand for postseason tickets this year, the team pitched 2015 season ticket plans with the opportunity to buy seats for October baseball at Camden Yards. The pitch proved successful. And as the Orioles continued to win, sweeping the Detroit Tigers in the American League Division Series, team officials expanded the program, offering more guaranteed games for buyers of larger season ticket packages.

WASHINGTON -- While world leaders gathered at the barbed wire and crematoriums of Auschwitz 60 years after the liberation of that Nazi death camp, Oscar nominee Don Cheadle gathered with members of Congress in Washington who are trying to stop a genocide that goes on today. In a crowded House hearing room, the star of Hotel Rwanda and members of Congress talked about their recent fact-finding mission to the strife-ridden Darfur region of Sudan. More than 70,000 innocent civilians are believed to have died and more than 1.8 million forced from their homes in a deadly ethnic cleansing campaign by the Janjaweed militia backed by the Sudanese government.

It happens seemingly every year on almost every team: One starting pitcher never gets any run support. For the Orioles this year, Ubaldo Jimenez is that guy. In 11 of his 14 starts, the Orioles have scored three or fewer runs. In six of those, they have scored one or less, including Friday's 4-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Jimenez allowed two runs in six innings against a good-hitting Blue Jays team, yet picked up his eighth loss of the year because the Orioles' bats again went cold.

Here's what umpire crew chief Gerry Davis told me about the delay on today's replay review on Rays right fielder Matt Joyce's eventual home run ball in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Rays: "[Orioles manager] Buck [Showalter] wanted to know whether the ball was, in fact, fair. We got together as a crew to discuss whether the ball was fair or foul, whether any of us had anything differently than [first-base ump Dan Iassogna] had. We did not. So the ruling on the field was that it was a fair ball in play.

The day after Joe Maddon's team was awarded a home run after a replay review showed that Matt Joyce's ball hit the base of Camden Yards' right-field foul pole in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay, the Rays manager blasted crew chief Gerry Davis, calling the situation “baseball anarchy” and saying that Davis “made stuff up on the field.” Joyce's ball was originally ruled in play, landing him at second base with a double. But after Orioles manager Buck Showalter sprinted out of the dugout to argue the ball was foul, Maddon asked for a replay review, but wanted to ensure that the ball would either be ruled a home run or remain a double.

The nicest surprise in the NFL season so far is the absence of instant replay going virtually unnoticed. There have been no disputes since the New York Jets-Atlanta Falcons season opener on NBC, when two major calls appeared to be in error.At halftime of that game, Joe Namath called for bringing back the replay rule and forecast a season chock full of controversy without it. But a funny thing happened. Not a single obvious bad call has occurred at crunch time in three weeks of play.Ed Goren, CBS coordinating producer for the NFL, says he has observed mistakes on several sideline calls during the 17 games on his network.

Fox will have 26 cameras trained on each game of the World Series. The way things have gone this postseason, that's not good news if you're an umpire. During a teleconference yesterday with Fox's Series announcers, Joe Buck and Tim McCarver, the question of instant replay review naturally came up because of this fall's playoff series with phantom tags and strikeouts that weren't. "I don't want to see it because I'm a traditionalist," McCarver said. " ... But you could make the case based on this postseason."

IRVING, Texas -- Nick Price's first victory in eight years on the American pro golf tour was upstaged yesterday by the initial application of golf's instant-replay rule.Price, a former globetrotter who now resides in the United HTC States, scored a welcome but more-or-less routine one-stroke victory in the Byron Nelson Classic."Eight years is a long time to be patient," Price said after his closing 68 and 270 total made him a winner in this country for the first time since the 1983 World Series of Golf.

When Orioles left fielder Nelson Cruz ran through first base on a close play April 19 at Fenway Park and was called out by first base umpire Ted Barrett, it sparked a chain of events that has become common in the major leagues this season. After almost one month of the new instant replay system, there have been plenty of praises and criticisms as teams, umpires and Major League Baseball continue to search for the best ways to reach accurate calls using replay. "I think when it's all said and done, people will like having it in the game," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

BOSTON - Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the king of early ballpark arrivals on the road, admitted it was a little difficult to turn off his alarm around 6 a.m. coming off Sunday night's game. Thank goodness for the cup of coffee Showalter had sitting on his desk in the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park on Monday morning. The Orioles will have an extremely quick turnaround, with an 11:05 a.m. start against the Red Sox for the annual Patriots' Day game, which coincides with the Boston Marathon.

BOSTON - During every game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has a card with him that tells him which plays are reviewable and which ones aren't. The color coding is simple. The plays in green can be reviewable, the plays in red cannot. But it's not always that easy, and that was the case in the Orioles' 6-5 loss to the Red Sox on Sunday night . After the Red Sox scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth, Showalter wanted the umpires to review whether Dustin Pedroia tagged up at third base before running to the plate on an errant throw home.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz is available for today's series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays after being bedridden the past two days with an illness that included a brief stay in a local hospital. Matusz said he first felt sick Friday morning, and that afternoon he went to a local hospital, where he received IV fluids and wasn't released until late at night. "I think that was just to get on IVs and make sure everything was OK and make sure that it wasn't a stomach problem,” Matusz said.

It may have taken decades for Major League Baseball to come around to the idea of using video review to confirm or overturn questionable umpiring decisions, but it didn't take Orioles manager Buck Showalter very long to come up with a plan to make the most of the new, expanded replay system. If you're going to successfully navigate a new program that is designed to second-guess the baseball world's best umpires, who better to put in front of the replay monitor than someone who had worked as an umpire himself?

Understand this: It is vital to keep all the issues surrounding the replay fiasco in Eugene, Ore., last weekend separate and in proper perspective. To put it so simply that a rabid, death-threat-sending Oklahoma fanatic might even understand: It's a game. Yes, it's a game worth millions of dollars, at least that many emotions and probably someone's job riding on the outcome, but still just a game. A good, credible game in which players and coaches make mistakes and, on balance, officials make a lot fewer mistakes.

Toomey wishes that same film was available to officials for a crucial, game-turning play.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been an advocate of expanded instant replay, and he has been pretty vocal about the topic -- both its benefits and downfalls. Now that expanded replay will be enacted this season -- last Thursday, Major League Baseball announced that all 30 clubs unanimously approved the proposal -- the new system could change the way the game is viewed and played. That will lead to an adjustment process for teams, umpires, players and managers. But, ultimately, the goal is to get calls right, Showalter said.
