SAN DIEGO - With one swing, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis erased the disappointment of his previous three at-bats Wednesday at Petco Park. Davis had already struck out twice and stranded four baserunners - including three in scoring position - when he stepped to the plate in the eighth inning of a tie game against the San Diego Padres. Wasting no time, he blasted left-handed reliever Colt Hynes' first pitch deep into the right-center field seats. The three-run homer started a string of seven unanswered runs for the Orioles in a 10-3 win before an announced 21,206.

If the circumstances were different, Matt Wieters might have been surrounded by reporters during Thursday's media availability at Camden Yards. As his Orioles teammates faced cameras and questions, the injured catcher faced the reality of sitting out the team's first American League Championship Series in 17 years. Wieters, who hasn't played since early May and underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in June, said the 2014 playoffs are the most significant games that he has missed since he had to sit out a summer All-Star game as a 13-year-old in Goose Creek, S.C. “It's difficult in the aspect that you want to be out there with your guys, you want to be out there on the battlefield playing, but at the same time, the way the guys have played have really made it easier for me,” Wieters said.

New Orioles catcher Nick Hundley arrived at Camden Yards on Sunday morning, happy to be a part of a contending club. Hundley, who was acquired from the San Diego Padres on Saturday in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton , will play an important role with his new team. Starting catcher Matt Wieters remains on the disabled list with a right elbow strain, and his status for the rest of the season is still uncertain. "I didn't know where I was going, but if there was one place I wanted to be, it was here," Hundley said.

Major league owners will convene in Baltimore next week for their quarterly meeting, and they are expected to elect a new commissioner to replace Bud Selig, who will retire in January after presiding over the sport in both an interim and permanent capacity for more than 22 years. The two-day meeting will take place Wednesday and Thursday at the downtown Hyatt Regency and, according to a Major League Baseball source, is not expected to venture far afield from the choice of the new commissioner, who will be selected from a field of finalists that include MLB chief operating officer Rob Manfred, MLB executive vice president of business Tim Brosnan and Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner.

It was way back in 1983 when a 15-year-old California girl and her baseball fanatic father were watching the World Series on television and she became smitten with the ice-blue eyes of the Orioles' young shortstop. About a decade later, Wendy Harding fell in love for real with her now-husband Charles, a big-time San Diego Padres fan. But the 39-year-old Long Beach, Calif., woman never completely tossed away her crush on Cal Ripken Jr. And Charles Harding is OK with that. "I've always said that Cal Ripken is the only man who could come between me and my wife," joked Charles Harding, whose wife placed first this year in the San Diego County Fair's sports division for her Ripken memorabilia collection.

Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn always will be linked by a splendid Sunday in July 2007, when baseball fans massed to celebrate all that was still good in the game. The pair went into the Hall of Fame together - Gwynn, the voluble hitting wizard, and Ripken, the indestructible shortstop. They seemed to admire each other as much as the crowd appreciated them both. So Ripken reacted with sadness Monday when news emerged that Gwynn had died at age 54 after an extended battle with cancer . “This is an extraordinarily sad day,” Ripken said in a statement.

KANSAS CITY, MO - Although he had been in the majors for parts of the past three seasons with the San Diego Padres, right-handed reliever Brad Brach admits he may have been a little jittery when he made his Orioles debut May 3. He allowed three runs while getting just four outs that day in Minnesota. He pitched in the next game as well - striking out one of the two batters he faced - before being sent back to Triple-A Norfolk two days later. “I'm definitely more comfortable this time,” said Brach, who was recalled Friday to give the Orioles a reliever capable of pitching multiple innings.

SAN DIEGO -- Thanks to a double switch that Orioles manager Buck Showalter made in the bottom of the eighth inning of Wednesday's victory over the San Diego Padres, right-handed reliever Darren O'Day was slated to bat eighth in the ninth inning. But when the Orioles scored three runs in the inning, O'Day suddenly found himself at the plate for his first major league at-bat. “That was definitely a surprise,” O'Day said. “When I came in, Buck told me, 'Hey, you are hitting eighth.' I was like, 'OK'.
