Nick Markakis, the longest-tentured Orioles player, will make his eighth straight Opening Day start in right field this afternoon. After testing his stiff neck during batting practice today, Markakis will be in the starting lineup batting leadoff. It will mark the most consecutive Opening Day starts by an Orioles outfielder since Paul Blair made 12 straight starts in center field from 1965 to 1976.  Two Orioles infielders -- second baseman Jonathan Schoop and third baseman Ryan Flaherty -- will be making their first Opening Day starts.

The Orioles' two participants in the annual Futures Game ended up facing each other in the fourth inning Sunday at Target Field in Minneapolis. And Low-A Delmarva right-hander Hunter Harvey got the best of Double-A Bowie outfielder Dariel Alvarez, inducing an inning-ending groundout to escape a jam. Harvey, 19, pitching for the United States Futures team in the top all-star game for minor league prospects, struck out the first two World Futures...

Orioles prospect Henry Urrutia had three singles in the Surprise Saguaros' 7-6 victory over the Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League opener Tuesday. Urrutia, who batted .276 with two RBIs in 24 games for the Orioles this season, had an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning to extend the Saguaros' lead to 2-0. The 26-year-old outfielder, who batted fifth and started in right field for Surprise, also singled in the third and seventh innings and grounded out to second base in the fifth.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado returned to the starting lineup Sunday after missing two games with right groin stiffness, going 1-for-2 with a solo homer and two walks. Manager Buck Showalter didn't release his starting lineup until he saw Machado go through all pregame baseball activities - he took batting practice, ran the bases and fielded grounders. “It still bothers me a little bit, but nothing too crazy,” Machado said of his groin after the game. “Feels much better than what it was initially when it first happened.

The Orioles' Chris Sabo made an impressive outfield debut in left at Fenway Park over the weekend, and made his right-field debut at Camden Yards last night.Sabo, becoming a fixture in the No. 2 spot in the batting order, said his back is in good shape."I'm running as good as I have all year," he said.The Orioles' right-field wall isn't the Green Monster, but the scoreboard stands 25 feet high."It's not an easy one to play for the simple reason that it's different than most," said Mark McLemore, who moved from the infield to right field last season.

The seasons seemed to change. Blue skies turned gray and then back again. There was a snow dispute and a snow delay. Day became night. The Orioles looked listless and cursed, and then they looked like charmed, comeback kings. Opening Day at Camden Yards turned into an epic saga yesterday - the longest home opener by innings in Orioles history and their longest opener anywhere since 1966. An announced sellout crowd of 46,257 turned into a sea of scattered individuals. The Cleveland Indians took a 12th-inning lead on Omar Vizquel's run-scoring single, and the Orioles scored the tying run on a passed ball.

On the field: The fans sitting in right field in Yankee Stadium are known as the loudest, most obnoxious and most obscene of any in baseball. They have a special affection for former Met Bobby Bonilla -- who grew up in the Bronx -- chanting lots of things that we can't print here. When the game was delayed briefly in the fourth inning, the fans focused their attention on Bonilla in right field, and he turned his back on them, crossed his arms and faced the right-field foul line.In the dugout: In the bottom of the ninth, Orioles manager Davey Johnson let right-handed-hitting Mike Devereaux bat against Yankees closer John Wetteland, who had struck out Devereaux to end Thursday's game.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Orioles right fielder Jay Gibbons lay on the ground deep in the right-field corner, as fireworks shot out from beyond the center-field wall at Angels Stadium. Vladimir Guerrero's inside-the-park home run had just given the Los Angeles Angels a two-run eighth-inning lead, but the scene in right field made the score almost an afterthought. After a clearly hobbled Gibbons overthrew the cutoff man, he dropped to the ground. O's@Angels Tonight, 10:05, Ch. 54, 1090 AM Starters: Orioles' Erik Bedard (5-3, 5.08)

Shortly after the announcement of his deal to buy Baltimore's baseball team in 1988, Eli S. Jacobs said: "I am now an Orioles fan."To that, it can be added that Jacobs is an ardent fan of the team's new home field, Oriole Park at Camden Yards.Jacobs, 54, likes the park. A lot. He is a fan of the B&O warehouse, which looms behind the outfield fence; the fan-friendly seating bowl, with its close proximity to the field; and above all, the right-field "Tall Wall," a 25-foot high fence that should be temptation for generations of free-swinging power hitters.

DETROIT -- We're three hours before game time, and by the looks of things, there should be a game here today. It's raw - 38 degrees at 10 a.m. And it's foggy, though that fog seems to be lifting some.  The mound and home plate were covered. But the full tarp had been out in right field until 10:15, when the grounds crew placed it back over the infield. They then started shaking it again and rolling it up, so who knows? The Orioles will be a little bleary-eyed. Their plane didn't get into Detroit until about 3:15 a.m. The players didn't really get settled into the hotel until about 4, I was told.

Infielder Alexi Casilla, who has been limited this spring to a right hamstring strain, was scratched from Friday's lineup with a hyper-extended left knee. The Orioles weren't immediately sure of the extent of the injury. Casilla, a non-roster invitee who is battling to regain his utility infield spot, has played in just three games and is hitless in five at-bats. Jonathan Schoop replaced Casilla at shortstop and will bat seventh. Quintin Berry and Michael Almanzar dropped to eighth and ninth in the lineup, respectively.

When Hall of Famer Frank Robinson joined the Orioles in 1966, he was surprised by the youth the club had in key areas, including then-22-year-old center fielder Paul Blair who would play to Robinson's right for most of the next six seasons. Blair was coming off his first 100-plus-game season in the majors when the 30-year-old Robinson was acquired to man right field. “I didn't know how many years [Paul] had been there, I just had heard we had a [young] center fielder, a rookie second baseman [Davey Johnson]

Few players could maneuver their way around center field at old Memorial Stadium like former Orioles outfielder Paul Blair. The eight Gold Gloves that Blair - who died on Thursday at the age of 69 - won during his time with the great Orioles teams of the 1960s and 1970s are a testament to that, but his former teammates remembered him Friday not only as an exceptional defender but also as a cherished teammate with a loquacious personality. In an era before web gems and defensive highlights aired on television, Blair was a showman and center field was his stage.

As third baseman Manny Machado continues to hit doubles at a record pace, right fielder Nick Markakis has had one of the best views for the 20-year-old's performances: the on-deck circle. Machado has hit second in all 70 of the Orioles' games, and Markakis has been in the No. 3 spot for 51 of them. And while he was in front of Machado on Sunday, in the leadoff spot for the 17th time this year, Markakis still got to see Machado do what he does best when he pulled the ball down the left-field line for his 32nd double of the year against left-hander Jon Lester in the first inning.

No question the fifth and sixth innings were a mess Monday night at Camden Yards due to a continual and heavy rain. And surely the Los Angeles Angels would have preferred if the game had been stopped after they scored a run in the top of the sixth. The Orioles scored twice in the bottom of the sixth as the field conditions worsened. Those two runs proved to be the difference in a 4-3 Orioles victory that included a two-hour and 14-minute rain delay. Here are post-game interviews with umpiring crew chief Joe West, Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Angels manager Mike Scioscia.
