Like a Christmas stocking, Scott Baker's variety-style Mistletoe Madness is brimming with everything from novelties to sweets and nuts, with an emphasis on the latter. It turns out that even someone who swallows fire and pounds nails into his head gets into the Christmas spirit. Perhaps because Baker seems like an overgrown kid himself, his show genuinely will appeal to kids of all ages. Theatergoers who remember Baker from his 1997 appearance at the Theatre Project will recognize some stunts performed by this actor/magician/comedian and sideshow veteran in his return engagement.

Tonight's Orioles-Texas Rangers game has a tentative start time of 8 p.m.  - and a new starting pitcher. The Rangers have scratched their ace, right-hander Yu Darvish (8-4, 2.42 ERA), and replaced him with right-hander Scott Baker (0-1, 5.80 ERA). The Rangers didn't want Darvish to begin his start, only to have it end prematurely because of rain. So Darvish's start likely will be pushed back until Friday, against the New York Mets. At least there will be a game tonight.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter made it clear in his pre-game comments Thursday that his focus was on the Minnesota Twins, not the challenges that his club has ahead of it over the next seven days. But with the first-place New York Yankees coming to town followed by the Boston Red Sox, and the short-handed Twins leaving, the 3-1 loss in front of an announced 16,769 at Camden Yards screamed of a missed opportunity for the Orioles to set themselves up for a decent homestand. The Twins, depleted by injuries and illness, got seven shutout innings from Orioles nemesis Scott Baker and walked out of Camden Yards with a split of the series despite not having Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau and Tsuyoshi Nishioka for any of the four games and Delmon Young for just one. Thursday night, all they needed were a couple of swings from Jim Thome and a dominant Baker, who out-dueled an effective Jeremy Guthrie to improve to 6-0 with a 2.17 ERA in eight career starts against the Orioles.

Daniel Cabrera now has one more start left, one more chance to show the Orioles that he has, indeed, progressed rather than regressed in what was supposed to be his breakthrough season. There have been times this year when improvement and positives have been hard to find, lost among mounting walk totals and extended stretches of faulty control. Still, there are too many signs of hope for the Orioles to do anything but keep sending Cabrera to the mound and hope that he figures it all out. Twins@Orioles Today, 4:35 p.m., Ch. 54, 1090 AM Starters: Twins' Scott Baker (5-8, 6.33)

The Orioles got pretty much what they expected last night from the major league debut of Radhames Liz. There were moments of great promise, such as the hard slider that he struck out Michael Cuddyer with in the second inning, or the high 97 mph fastball that he threw past Torii Hunter in the fourth inning. But there were also plenty of times where Liz reminded the Orioles that he was just a 24-year-old kid, pitching above Double-A for the first time in his career. Liz made a few too many mistakes and his offense gave him little support as the Orioles dropped their fifth straight game, falling 8-1 to the Minnesota Twins in front of an announced 28,700 that braved a nearly two-hour rain delay.

First-inning woes: : In both games of the doubleheader, the Orioles allowed runs in the first inning, something they have done 67 times this season and in 19 of their past 30 games. The Orioles lost the first game, 12-2. Olson's disaster: : Left-hander Garrett Olson managed two outs in the first inning of Game 2 before being pulled in the shortest start of his career. Olson allowed six runs on five hits, a walk and hit a batter in two-thirds of an inning. Struggling again: : Brian Burres allowed three runs in an inning during the first game, continuing what has been an ugly return from the minors.

Kevin Millwood watched Game 1 of the day/night doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday and saw something that he has been completely unfamiliar with since joining the Orioles. In a 7-3 victory over the Twins at Target Field, the Orioles pounded out 12 hits off Francisco Liriano, giving starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie more run support than he needed in his first victory of the season. Millwood was looking for his first win as well, but the Orioles couldn't carry the offensive momentum into the nightcap and they were shut down by Scott Baker in the Twins' 6-1 victory before an announced 38,683.

One streak met its end, while the seeds of another were planted at yesterday's Carroll County cross country championships at Western Maryland College in Westminster. Westminster's remarkable run of 17 straight county boys titles came to halt as top-ranked South Carroll took the team crown with a 25-40 win at the college's 3.1-mile course. Meanwhile, the No. 10 North Carroll girls squad captured its second consecutive team championship by defeating seventh-ranked Westminster, 26-45. The last time the Westminster boys had lost in the county championships was in 1982 when North Carroll upended the Owls.
