In his first start at High-A Frederick, top Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy had his rockiest outing since returning to minor league action. Bundy allowed three runs on four hits -  three of them singles -  in 4 2/3 innings , recording three strikeouts and two walks. It was the first time in four minor league starts that Bundy, who has been held to a pitch count, did not go five full innings. The 21-year-old Bundy, recovering from Tommy John surgery last June, was 0-1 with a 0.60 ERA at short-season Single-A Aberdeen, allowing 10 hits in 15 innings with 22 strikeouts and three walks.  eencina@baltsun.com twitter.com/EddieInTheYard

Nelson Cruz thought he had his 27th home run of the season in the second inning Wednesday night when Texas Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin leaped at the wall and pulled the ball back in what arguably was the year's best defensive play at Camden Yards so far. A few hours later, Cruz received a text. “I'm Sorry,” Martin wrote. Cruz laughed. “I said, 'Don't be sorry. It's OK. It's part of the game,' ” Cruz said. “He's out there competing and trying to win. We'll be friends no matter what.” Cruz and Martin played parts of three seasons together in Texas; they still keep in touch.

Late last week, Tom May - the 27-year-old singer and guitarist for the Philadelphia punk band the Menzingers - waited to board a plane at Texas' Austin-Bergstrom International Airport that would take him to his hometown of Scranton, Pa., for a cousin's wedding. It was one more reminder that he was no longer a kid, and hasn't been for a long time. “People are getting married. People are dying. People are doing all of these things,” May said on the phone. “We always write what we know, like what happens in our lives, and things are starting to get a lot more serious than they ever were before.” April's “Rented World,” the Menzingers' fourth album, signified a gut check.

I returned to my old community of West Baltimore, under the shadow of Bon Secours Hospital near the intersection of West Fayette and North Payson streets, to visit a native I had not seen for three decades. David Brown, who lived across the alley from me in the old neighborhood, had years ago opened a small store directly across from the sprawling hospital. The New Fayette Street Market & Deli is like a small fortress, with a Plexiglas bastion from which he can sell sundries and essentials in blackest night or brightest day. In one corner of his store is a small desk with two computers, which provide neighborhood kids with a window to a world far removed from the blasted buildings and broken streets of the community.

As a B1G guy (an intern from Iowa), I'd like to personally welcome Maryland to our great conference. While it's official today, it probably won't feel official until Oct. 4., when you guys play Ohio State. In other news, a lot more sports things happened yesterday, so catch up here at the Coffee Companion, where we recap yesterday's sports headlines. - Ubaldo Jimenez earned his first win since May 8  as the Orioles dominated the Rangers, 7-1.

As the temperature rises every summer in Baltimore, so does the number of balls that carry out of Camden Yards. Hits similar to ones that landed at the warning track two weeks ago are now finding their way into the seats. And the Orioles lineup is built to take full advantage of such a summer swoon. The Orioles led the major leagues with 46 home runs in June, and they continued their power surge into July. They hit three homers, including Nelson Cruz's 26th of the season on his 34th birthday, in an 8-3 victory over the struggling Texas Rangers on Tuesday night in front of an announced 19,150.

As Ubaldo Jimenez walked off the mound in the middle of the eighth inning of the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night, he was greeted by the home crowd at Camden Yards with a standing ovation. The reception hasn't always been as warm for Jimenez, who was signed to a club-record four-year, $50 million contract in February. He has heard his share of boos from the seating bowl after many disappointing and short outings. On Monday, Jimenez could stand tall, and he touched the bill of his cap to the crowd after delivering his deepest outing of the season and earning his first win in an Orioles uniform in front of the home crowd . “As a ballplayer, that's what you play for, to be there for the fans, to get a good [cheer]

As the Ravens await NFL commissioner  Roger Goodell's  ruling on  Ray Rice's   discipline, it's becoming more apparent that they won't be alone in going with the running back by committee approach during Rice's absence. There is wide-ranging opinion on how long Rice will be suspended for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy with his actions during a physical confrontation with his then fiancee and now wife in February. But it's certainly not impossible - and some view it as probable - that Rice is suspended for at least the first three games.

If Brian Matusz had won the matchup with the Tampa Bay Rays' James Loney in the sixth inning, the rest of the Orioles' game Sunday afternoon could have looked a lot different. But Loney hit a double, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter decided to stay with the left-hander instead of inserting right-hander Ryan Webb and further depleting a bullpen worn thin by Friday's doubleheader and a short outing Sunday by starter Miguel Gonzalez. Matusz, who was brought in to face the left-handed Loney with two outs in the sixth, went on to give up another double and a two-run home run as part of a decisive seven-run inning, and the Orioles set a new season-high in runs allowed in a 12-7 loss to the Rays in front of an announced 32,665 in the series finale at Camden Yards.

The Orioles bullpen went into the sixth inning of Sunday afternoon's game against the Tampa Bay Rays having allowed just one run over its past 30 innings. But a struggling Tampa Bay Rays offense came to life with a seven-run sixth inning -- all of the runs coming against the Orioles bullpen -- as 11 batters went to the plate. Six of the runs were scored with two outs in the inning off relievers Evan Meek and Brian Matusz. The Orioles entered the inning leading, 4-3, but No. 9 hitter Kevin Kiermaier hit a solo homer to right field off Meek with one out to tie the game.
