After throwing seven shutout innings Friday in the Orioles' 4-2, Opening Day win over the Minnesota Twins, right-hander Jake Arrieta wasn't proclaiming himself as the club's ace going forward. "I don't know if I would necessarily say I am the No. 1 guy at this point in time," said the 26-year-old right-hander. "We were all aware it could have been a number of guys selected as the Opening Day starter. " His goal, he said, was to show his teammates that he could be trusted with the lofty assignment.

Quote: "I was running pretty good because I know better than to think that the ball's going out when I hit all of it. I figured I'd be shut down at third and Gardy [third base coach Ron Gardenhire] waved me on. I thought I was going to get thrown out by 30 feet."-- Todd Walker, who hit the 45th inside-the-park home run in Twins historyIt's a fact: Yesterday's game was the first time in 30 games at Safeco Field that the two teams have combined for six or more home runs.Who's hot: The Devil Rays' Randy Winn is 5-for-7 since his recall from Triple-A Durham on Saturday.

Whispers The Cardinals are thrilled with the job Jason Motte has done as their closer. He tentatively has been written in for the job in 2012, keeping them from having to go outside the organization to get that piece. … The Red Sox are hoping Clay Buchholz , like Josh Beckett , can bounce back from injury in time to make at least one start before their playoff plans have to be set. Buchholz is recovering from a stress fracture in his back, however, and looks like a long shot to pitch again in 2011.

Whispers Angels reliever Scott Downs , a former Blue Jay, spoke for a lot of people in Toronto when he trashed the ESPN story speculating that sign stealing at the Rogers Centre has helped Jose Bautista establish himself as one of baseball's best hitters. "Give credit where credit is due — and credit is due," Downs said. "He worked real hard to make himself into a great player. " … Despite fears that an unusually high number of top draft picks will fail to sign by Monday's deadline, almost all first-rounders are expected to sign.

Dontrelle Willis (1-1, 3.99 ERA) appears to be all the way back for the Tigers. He froze Justin Morneau with a well-placed 94 mph fastball Tuesday, when he retired 12 straight Twins in one stretch. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire called Willis' stuff "good, really good." He faces the Yankees on Monday. … The Mariners' Ken Griffey isn't the only old hand whose popularity and production is an issue for an AL West front office. The A's are dealing with the same thing involving Eric Chavez, who is turning the designated hitter spot into a powerless wasteland.

MINNEAPOLIS — Maybe it's the Yankees themselves. Maybe it's the Twins knowing it's the Yankees. And maybe it's a lethal combination of both. Whatever the reason, the postseason domination continued Thursday night with the Yankees producing their fifth straight American League Division Series victory over the Twins, this one 5-2 at Target Field. Now one game from moving to the American League Championship Series, the Yankees have won four of those five games in the sixth inning or later, including this one when Lance Berkman's "second-chance" double in the seventh gave the Yankees a lead and led to an ejection for Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

After blowing two saves during a four-game weekend series against Tampa Bay, Joe Nathan realized he was hurting the Twins and agreed to step away from the closer's job for now. "I feel like my consistency right now just isn't where I need it to be," he said. "Until I start getting that back -- and I know I will at some time -- I don't want to put this team at any risk and cost them ballgames right now. "We're all scuffling right now. The games that we do have, I'd like to get those taken care of and finished up. " Nathan approached manager Ron Gardenhire and pitching coach Rick Anderson after Saturday's 4-3 loss in which he gave up a tying homer to Ben Zobrist and then walked two batters.

Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia passed through Baltimore last week, repeating his mantra about the importance of focusing on the obstacle immediately in front of you. It's a timeworn baseball cliche - you have to play them one game at a time - and yet Scioscia and his team have given it a deeper meaning with their amazing performance this season. The Angels started the year with six victories in 20 games. They were supposed to be overmatched in the American League West by the 116-win Seattle Mariners and the pitching-rich Oakland Athletics, but they are tied for first place in baseball's most competitive division after winning three of four in a showdown series with the visiting A's last week at Edison International Field.

MILWAUKEE — A hirsute man in Miller Park turned his shirtless back to the TV cameras this weekend. Someone had shaved the word "Mauer" and the number "7" into his back hair. Maybe it was Joe. He seems to have time on his hands. That Mauer didn't start at catcher on Sunday wasn't a crime. His manager, Ron Gardenhire, is determined to protect Mauer's legs and back by keeping him from catching in day games following night games. Mauer didn't beg out of the game; Gardenhire never gave him the chance.
