There must be something funny about "Road Trip." Well, there is a talking dog, and hungry snake. Come to think of it, the animals in "Road Trip" are pretty hilarious; as a five-minute short on cable TV's Animal Planet, this film would be a stitch. Breckin Meyer ("Go") is Josh, an underachieving college freshman who's loved Tiffany (Rachel Blanchard) since they were infants. He becomes convinced she's no longer interested in maintaining their relationship -- he's in New York, she's in Texas -- so he he succumbs to temptations of the flesh with the lovely Beth (Amy Smart)

Maybe just a night sleeping in their own beds was all the Orioles needed for their bats to wake up following a weekend of Chicago slumber at Wrigley Field. "The hits, the runs, all of it,” shortstop J.J. Hardy said. “Slumped a little bit there in Chicago, but it's nice to come out first game this homestand and score some runs. " The Orioles blasted Tampa Bay Rays pitching with five homers in their 9-1 win Monday night in the first of 11 straight games at Camden Yards. They went 74 games between three-game losing streaks this season, which might be why being swept by the Cubs this weekend was so startling.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain, was tentative while throwing during his workout Sunday and therefore will need a rehab assignment. “Still favoring it a lot, he was trying to protect [the ankle] in his throw,” Showalter said. “So we kind of shortened [the session] up a little bit because it wasn't getting any better, and we didn't want to have a setback. … Obviously, he's got some significance in there that we're going to have to clear up before we can pitch him.” That means Jimenez will not pitch at all for the Orioles during their 10-game road trip to the West Coast to start the second half of the season despite being eligible to come off the DL on July 23. He likely will pitch that day at a minor league affiliate on the East Coast.

CHICAGO -- Being swept out of the Windy City this weekend by a Chicago Cubs team already auditioning for 2015 roster spots didn't sit well with Orioles manager Buck Showalter. By the end of their 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles had seen enough of historic Wrigley Field. Held hitless by former teammate Tsuyoshi Wada for six innings, they managed just one hit overall on the day. The Orioles (73-55) left Chicago having scored just one run -- Steve Pearce's seventh-inning solo home run, which broke up Wada's no-hit bid -- over 16 innings after play resumed Saturday following a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

Fresh off two wins over the New York Yankees, center fielder Adam Jones and the Orioles decided to have a little fun with fashion for their late-night trip to Canada, where they play the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday. Before catching a plane after Wednesday night's 6-3 win, Jones and several Orioles players, including Manny Machado, Tommy Hunter and Brian Matusz, donned denim-on-denim outfits and posed for a couple pictures . If you have ever seen the fine film “ Super Troopers ,” the all-Levi look is jokingly called a “Canadian Tuxedo.” If you want to rock the same look, here is a helpful denim guide . Of course, the Orioles are no strangers when it comes to having fun with their wardrobes on the road (and they are certainly not the only team to play dress-up )

In baseball, it's always a good feeling to come home after finishing a road trip with a win. And the Orioles have a lot to be happy about returning to Baltimore following their 11-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night. Given what the Orioles went through - a pair of day games after night games in Boston that forced the bullpen work overtime, then three games in the launching pad that is the Rogers Centre - coming out of the seven-game road trip with a 4-3 record was a major victory.

With Brian Roberts recently making significant strides in his recovery from a right hamstring surgery, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that the second baseman could begin a minor league rehab assignment right after the team's road trip ends Sunday. “He'll know,” Showalter said. “We talk about it every day. I love having Brian around and he got through taking ground balls. He was doing slow rollers plays, balls to his right where he really needs to push off. He's had a lot of tests that he's passed so far. We've talked about it. It might not happen, but there's a chance he could go out at the end of this trip.” Roberts has done a significant amount of early work on the team's trip to Detroit.  He participated in sprint and agility drills Tuesday and Showalter said one of the biggest remaining tests is perfecting short bursts of running.

While playing on the West Coast offers its share of obstacles - among them getting used to the three-hour time difference and the initial fatigue of a cross-country flight - sometimes coming out West can be just what a team needs. Whether it benefits the Orioles is still to be seen, but after winning both games of a brief two-game series in San Diego, they're off to a promising start. The Orioles have played well on the road this season, and sometimes getting away can relieve some pressure.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - - As promising as the Orioles' seven-game road trip to Texas and Kansas City was through their first four games, this was not the way they wanted it to end. After winning the first four games, including a three-game sweep of the Rangers, the Orioles dropped their third straight game to the Royals in a 7-1 loss on Thursday at Kauffman Stadium in front of an announced crowd of 17,675 to end their road trip 4-3. “It started out...

When the Orioles travel to Detroit to begin a six-game road trip Monday, second baseman Brian Roberts will be with the team, and the club is optimistic he can start a minor league rehabilitation assignment upon the return from the trip. Roberts, however, wouldn't put a timetable on when a rehab assignment would begin and said Saturday that he still needed to work through some things before live-game action. "I can't go play yet," Roberts said. "I still have some progressions to get through, especially running.

SEATTLE - The Orioles just finished a grueling 10-game road trip against three powers of the American League West with a 6-4 record and series wins in Anaheim and Seattle. It might have been the toughest stretch on the road this year, and the Orioles passed the test. But now they will have to face the Angels and the Mariners at home for a pair of three-game sets at Camden Yards. “It's going to be a memory by the time we leave here because we have two of the best teams in the American League coming in,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said following the Orioles' 3-2, 10-inning win over the Mariners on Sunday.

SEATTLE -- The Orioles' 10-game West Coast road trip was a major test whether they could hold their own while playing against three playoff-caliber teams across the country. The trip was characterized by closely contested games - seven were decided by two runs or fewer - in which strong pitching and clutch hitting was often the difference. And on Sunday afternoon, as the sun set on what might be their most grueling stretch away from home this season, the Orioles finished the road trip with a 3-2 victory in 10 innings over the Seattle Mariners in front of an announced 26,523 at Safeco Field.

WASHINGTON -- Thanks to a persistent rainstorm Tuesday night, the budding Orioles-Nationals rivalry has been moved 50 miles up the road, but it will make a return appearance to the nation's capital in August. Tuesday's finale of a two-game series at Nationals Park was postponed after a two-hour, 30-minute rain delay. It will be made up Aug. 4 in Washington - no time for that game has been announced yet. According to Nationals manager Matt Williams, a day-night doubleheader in Washington and Baltimore this week was never in consideration because both teams have the common day off in the Baltimore-Washington area in August.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Inside the visiting clubhouse of Globe Life Park in Arlington, a weary Orioles team wanted to leave their 8-6 loss to the Texas Rangers behind them as quickly as possible. With their bags packed, the Orioles headed home after going a respectable .500 on their three-city, 10-game road trip. But Thursday night's loss, which snapped the Orioles' four-game winning streak, left the team both frustrated and startled. Right-hander Chris Tillman was unable to retire a batter in the second inning for the second time in his past four starts.

PHOENIX - Orioles rookie Henry Urrutia hasn't started a game since Aug. 3, but he was still an important part of the club's eight-game interleague road trip through National League West parks in San Diego, San Francisco and Arizona, as he pinch hit in all but one game. Urrutia is still getting adjusted to the major league game. When the Cuban defector arrived in Sarasota, Fla., this spring, he hadn't played in more than two seasons, so the organization was determined to give him 200 at-bats at Double- Bowie before promoting him to Triple-A Norfolk.

TORONTO -- Chris Davis' power numbers so far this year haven't matched the pace of last year's 53-homer season, but on Thursday night, the Orioles' slugging first baseman still found a way to be an offensive force without the long ball. Davis drove in three runs on a pair of opposite-field singles against the infield shift as the Orioles came back from an early three-run deficit and scored 11 straight runs in an 11-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in front of an announced 16,283 at Rogers Centre.

Home has been where the wins are for UMBC. The Retrievers (3-2) have won three of four games at UMBC Stadium this season. The offense has averaged 11.8 goals per game, while the defense has allowed an average of 8.5 goals over those four contests. But the team will hit the road for a Saturday visit to High Point. The game will be the Retrievers' first away game since Feb. 15, when they fell, 14-3, to No. 1 Maryland in College Park. Coach Don Zimmerman said the players understand the significance of Saturday's game, which kicks off a stretch of three consecutive road games and four of the next five overall.
