Entering Saturday night's game on a four-game losing streak, the Orioles could have been seen as a reeling ballclub clawing to stay in the American League playoff race with a must-win matchup against the Colorado Rockies on deck. But after the Orioles' 8-4 victory at Camden Yards, the players didn't see the game as having those stakes. Second baseman Brian Roberts said he listened to postgame coverage of the win and heard analyst Rick Dempsey say the Orioles had been on a lengthy losing streak, and he had no idea that was the case.

Rick Dempsey walks into the steamy warehouse on Aliceanna Street looking like he just stepped off the MASN set where he does Orioles pre- and post-game shows. Check him out. Deep summer tan. Hair perfectly combed. World Series ring glittering on one finger. Dark suit pants, purple striped shirt, purple tie and - "It's a purple and mauve tie," he corrects you. Mauve? You wonder if you heard that right. Did he really say mauve? "It's a mauve striped shirt, too," he adds. Now you wonder if some alien hasn't snatched the real Rick Dempsey and taken over his earthly form.

A night after designated hitter Chris Davis became the 19th Oriole in franchise history to hit three homers in a game, catcher Matt Wieters accomplished something a lot less explosive but even more rare on Saturday. In the Orioles' 8-2 win against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, which guaranteed them another series victory, Wieters turned in an impressive defensive hat trick: He threw out three different Blue Jays trying to steal. It's happened just 14 times in Orioles' history - with the last one coming on August 10, 1988 when Mickey Tettleton caught three Kansas City Royals.

At times, watching the Orioles play defense is like watching nine guys play egg-toss wearing oven mitts. Oh, can they be brutal. They drop easy fly balls. They let routine one-hoppers clank off their gloves. They skip throws in the dirt at first base. Or they sail them into the dugout or the stands or the rest rooms on the mezzanine level. When they take the field, I can feel myself automatically start to wince. "I've seen worse teams defensively, but not Orioles teams," says Rick Dempsey, the long-time O's catcher and now a MASN broadcaster.

Dempsey's Brew Pub isn't quite a home run. But it is a solid hit — rounding the bases and heading for home. This newest addition to Camden Yards' eatery options, backed by legendary Oriole catcher Rick Dempsey, debuted on Opening Day this year. Housed in on the Eutaw Street side of the stadium, in the historic B&O warehouse, Dempsey's interior is a love letter to baseball, and the menu is a bar-food homage to Baltimore. The restaurant is open only to ticket-holders during home Orioles games.

It's not just the number, which he hand-picked himself, that reminds careful observers of his uncle.It's everything about the kid wearing the uniform, Greg Zaun, that makes him look like a Rick Dempsey clone.The way he blocks pitches; the way he snaps the ball back to the pitcher from his knees; the way he presents a low target; the way he comes out of the crouch to rifle a throw to second base; the way he sits his mask on top of his helmet and walks to the pitcher's mound. The mannerisms are unmistakable -- and we've seen them all before.

They honored Mike Flanagan at Camden Yards Friday night, and for a few moments at the start of the game, the emotion was as thick as the humidity that enveloped the great ballpark. There was a moment of silence before the start of the game against the Yankees as a photo of Flanagan, achingly young and handsome, with a thick mustache and long hair and his whole life ahead of him, flashed on the scoreboard. Then at the end of the first inning, there was video tribute to the long-time player, front-office executive and broadcaster, mainly centering on his playing career: Flanny in his windup with that classic high-leg kick; Flanny, in the familiar 46 jersey, clowning around with teammates in warm-ups; Flanny shaking off his old catcher, Rick Dempsey; Flanny throwing the last pitch at old Memorial Stadium in 1991, eyes misting, as the sellout crowd gave the O's a standing ovation.
