The Orioles were schooled Sunday afternoon in an 11-1 rout at Camden Yards by an Oakland Athletics team that boasts the best record in the American League. And if this series were a barometer to gauge where the Orioles measured up against the high-flying Athletics, the test ended in ugly fashion. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was wildly inefficient, lasting just 2 1/3 innings. He left his shortest outing of the season after giving up six runs in the third inning. The Orioles issued a season-high 11 walks, the most they've allowed in nearly six years.

WASHINGTON -- The Orioles nicked and poked the Nationals to death in their penultimate spring game last night, overcoming a middling performance by starter Kris Benson to win, 9-6. The Orioles took an early 2-0 lead when Melvin Mora, Miguel Tejada and Jay Gibbons hit consecutive singles in the first inning. Gibbons' hit was misplayed in the outfield, allowing Tejada to score.

If there was one thing Orioles fans were accustomed to since last August, it was the presence of Manny Machado manning third base. Since his call-up on Aug, 9, 2012, Machado had played every possible inning of every game with the Orioles. But in the fifth inning of Thursday night's contest against the Cleveland Indians, Machado was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Will Little. It snapped a streak of 1,206 consecutive innings played by Machado to begin his major league career.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- When the Tampa Bay Devil Rays scored their 10th run in the fifth inning last night at Tropicana Field, the scoreboard in right-center field had a brief hiccup. For a few moments, the 9 turned into a 0, showing that the operators here don't get a lot of practice with double-digit innings.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Aubrey Huff stood at home plate longer than usual, admiring his three-run home run until it disappeared into a sea of blue seats in right field. He jogged around the bases and then touched home plate, where Kevin Millar and Miguel Tejada awaited him. Before he ducked into the visiting dugout at Tropicana Field, where he was congratulated by a mob of celebrating teammates, Huff tipped his helmet to a couple of fans who had spent the Orioles' 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays jeering his every move last night.

LEADOFF LAG Leadoff man Brian Roberts is the Orioles' offensive catalyst, and when he struggles, the lineup tends to also. That has been the case lately as Roberts is in the midst of an 0-for-16 slump that has dropped his average to a season-low .308. Roberts went 0-for-4 on Sunday and finished the series 0-for-14. GUTHRIE GETS ANGRY Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie acknowledged that he was angry after Alex Rios homered off him to break a tie at 3 in the fifth inning. It showed. After the homer, Guthrie started sprinting onto and off the mound between innings and, perhaps most importantly, he began pounding the strike zone with his fastball.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson hadn't blown a save in exactly a month, had converted 12 consecutive save opportunities and had allowed just one run in his previous 14 outings before he took the ball with a one-run lead in the ninth Wednesday. His rough stretch in May seemed to be becoming a distant memory. All that goodwill, though, disappeared quickly on Wednesday night when Johnson started the ninth with a four-pitch walk, allowed a double on his fifth pitch and then allowed successive RBI groundouts in a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians that spoiled a potential Orioles' comeback and a strong outing by starter Jason Hammel.

Through six innings Wednesday night, Cleveland Indians left-hander Scott Kazmir looked like the pitcher that posted an ERA of 3.77 or less for four straight seasons for Tampa Bay in the mid-2000s. The Orioles couldn't touch him, and Kazmir was pursuing a no-hitter into the seventh inning. Save a four pitch walk of Orioles catcher Matt Wieters in the fifth, and Kazmir could have been chasing perfection. But third baseman Manny Machado ensured Kazmir wouldn't post the second no-hitter in Camden Yards history.

One of the teams the Orioles had to outlast to make the playoffs last season was the Tampa Bay Rays, and on Sunday night, the Rays made one of the biggest trades of the offseason. The Rays dealt right-handers James Shields and Wade Davis to the Kansas City Royals for outfielder Wil Myers, arguably the top hitting prospect in the game, and three other prospects - right-hander Jake Odorizzi, left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard. Rays manager Joe Maddon expressed his mixed reactions to losing Shields, the club's all-time leader in wins and strikeouts, and Davis, a reliever who would have been a back-end rotation starter on most teams, on Twitter, saying: “Hate … HATE to lose James and Wade.

This time last year, the Tampa Bay Rays were hoping to shed the loser label that dogged them for the franchise's first 10 seasons. They wanted to show they were no longer the American League East's doormat. Mission accomplished - in a big way. The Rays went from the worst record in the majors in 2007 to the World Series in 2008, losing in five games to the Philadelphia Phillies. From 96 losses to 97 wins and their first division and league titles. Now, the Rays and manager Joe Maddon have a different challenge.
