Quote: "I don't want to make a big deal out of the run support. If this was going to happen all year, yeah, I'd be frustrated. But it's way too early to worry about it." - Gil Meche, for whom the Mariners have scored four runs in his six starts while he's in the game It's a fact: A home run has been hit in all 17 games at SkyDome, and the Blue Jays' ERA at home is 7.18. Who's hot: The Tigers' Juan Encarnacion has an 18-game hitting streak. Who's not: Darin Erstad is 3-for-21 on the Angels' road trip.

BOSTON - Anyone taking a glimpse of Fenway Park's iconic Green Monster can't miss the posting of the American League East standings, which after Tuesday's off day will show the Orioles with a losing record for the first time since the end of the 2011 season. The Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Red Sox in Boston's home opener Monday, marked the Orioles (3-4) first three-game losing streak since last July 23-25. However, the loss comes just seven games into this young season, prompting the Orioles to scoff at the notion that these consecutive losses give any reason to worry heading into Tuesday's first off day of the season.

Running backsDespite his brushes with the law, running back Bam Morris still runs hard and showed some acceleration a few times yesterday. He complemented the passing game extremely well. -- BQuarterbackEric Zeier showed better arm strength than previously demonstrated and moved out of the pocket well. He also made acouple of nice audibles and touch passes. -- BReceiversThis was a nice comeback game for Derrick Alexander, but overall they dropped too many passes. If Seattle had a better pass defense, the Ravens would have been in trouble yesterday.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- When Juan Guzman is good, he is very good. But when he's badMost times it's because he's hurt.Other times Guzman loses touch with his funky mechanics.And then there have been too many days when the ex-Toronto Blue Jay couldn't buy a run, either with greenbacks or the lousy Canadian exchange.On a reconfigured Orioles pitching staff that may go either way this season, Guzman is perhaps its biggest variable. At times during his erratic eight-year career Guzman has won 10 consecutive decisions and lost nine straight.

As slumps go, this one has gotten a bit peculiar. Enough so that it may not even qualify as such.Left-hander Jimmy Key had lost four of his past five decisions before last night. A 2.87 ERA during that time suggested a lack of run support largely was to blame.What transpired in his latest start, a 4-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox, didn't bring any relief. Or enough runs.Four batters into the game, Key was behind 3-0. And all the Orioles could do was hope for another ambush of Boston starter Steve Avery, which never materialized as the left-hander won his first decision since April 22.The offense couldn't deliver a timely hit. Key couldn't avoid a big inning.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - A starting pitcher can grumble about run support and cling proudly to a tidy little earned run average, but ultimately his bread is buttered with wins and losses. Baseball immortalizes its 300-game winners and pays only passing attention to ERA champions and victims of poor run support. This is why last night's duel between Orioles starter Scott Erickson and Anaheim Angels starter Jarrod Washburn was so compelling. As the innings passed with nothing but zeros on the scoreboard, something had to give.

WASHINGTON - During his four-season major league career, Zach Day of the Washington Nationals has been like two different pitchers. Night and day, you might say, There's the Day who entered last night's game 1-5 against the Atlanta Braves with a 10.93 ERA. Then there's the Day who's 17-15 against the rest of the league, despite getting the least run support last season of any pitcher in baseball. Last night, Day managed to exorcise his Atlanta demons. The 26-year-old right-hander shut out the Braves for seven innings, then watched as the bullpen held the lead and made Day and the Nats 2-0 winners.

How often in life do we willingly buy something that is as likely to break as not and that depends on eight other functioning entities for its success? Does this sound like a good bet? Well, as fantasy baseball owners, we don't have much choice, because the rules say we must carry nine pitchers. But, boy, are they maddening. Just when you develop an unhealthy affection for Mark Prior or Francisco Liriano, arm surgery comes a calling. Or just when C.C. Sabathia seems to be peaking, poor defense and run support conspire to hand him a 12-11 record last season.

He possesses a higher career winning percentage than Mike Mussina, a harder fastball than Roger Clemens and more run support than Pat Rapp. Camden Yards got its first glimpse of Oakland Athletics starter Tim Hudson last night and won't likely forget the experience. Hudson, all heat and movement, shut down the Orioles' four-game win streak last night with 7 1/3 one-hit innings in what ended as a 4-0 two-hitter. If not for center fielder Terrence Long's near-miss of Will Clark's fifth-inning line drive, Hudson (6-2)

Jeremy Guthrie, whose talk with reporters after his previous start included jokes about his struggles against the Boston Red Sox and his admiration for former BYU basketball star Jimmer Fredette, spoke in measured tones with his eyes fixed on the floor. Normally verbose and engaging, Guthrie's answers after the Orioles' 6-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday night before an announced 18,007 at U.S. Cellular Field were short and indirect. "I had chances to finish people. Didn't do it," he said.

On Opening Day, I made five bold predictions for the 2011 Orioles season. One of them was that starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie would win a career-high 15 games and finish the season with a winning record for the first time since he went 7-5 in 2007, his first season with the Orioles. “Guthrie will be steady as always in 2011,” I wrote in this Five for Friday post . “And now that the Orioles offense can get him some run support, he will be rewarded this season by finishing with a winning record and reaching the 15-win plateau for the first time in his career.” Well, through four starts, half of that prediction has been spot-on.

There was bound to be a day under manager Buck Showalter when the Orioles showed little spark and were shut down by a pitcher whom they figured to do more against. Still, Thursday night screamed of a missed opportunity to win five straight games for the first time all season, sweep their first three-game series in Cleveland since 1987 and take another step toward securing their first winning road trip in 2010. Veteran starter Kevin Millwood mostly did his part, allowing three runs over seven innings to continue the fine run by a resurgent rotation.

Kevin Millwood doesn't deserve to be 0-7, but try getting him to complain about his tough luck and crappy run support. Just try. I did. That didn't work, so I tried to get him to bite on a question about the possibility of being traded to a team with a little more to offer in the competitiveness department, and do you want to know what he said? "If they get an offer that's going to make them better down the road, that's part of helping the team," Millwood said Friday night.

The questions surrounding Mike Mussina found new gravity Thursday night. Four lockers away, Sidney Ponson glanced at the impressive rack of antlers over Moose's stall and wondered, "If you go, do you take the antlers with you?" Mussina nodded in the affirmative. Mussina tonight walks into the setting he hoped to avoid, but months ago concluded was inevitable when he makes what may well be his final start with the Orioles. Before a Camden Yards crowd aware that it may be witnessing history, Mussina will confront the New York Yankees amid a public referendum and a private struggle on his place with the only organization he has known during a 10-year career.

ARLINGTON, Texas - More than half the seats at Ameriquest Field were empty last night, a clear indication that football season has begun and the Texas Rangers aren't going to the playoffs. Not that it would matter if they did. Not in these parts. The general lack of interest and enthusiasm isn't conducive to pumping up the home team, and it certainly isn't going to bring chills to the Orioles. They have to look elsewhere for motivation. The standings aren't an option. Playing for pride and personal achievement, and perhaps to ensure that interim manager Sam Perlozzo keeps his job next season, the Orioles took advantage of two unearned runs in the second inning and defeated the Rangers, 4-2, to extend their winning streak to three games.
