ARLINGTON, Texas - Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman's early-inning struggles continued Thursday night in Texas.

Tillman was charged with five runs and six hits in one-plus inning, walking three and striking out one. He threw 51 pitches, including 29 strikes.

Chris Tillman shies away from talking about his accomplishments this season because he doesn't want to give the inclination that he's satisfied with the steps he has taken. He had a remarkable second half, continued his emergence as a leader in the Orioles starting rotation and continued to gain the confidence of manager Buck Showalter. Tillman admits he's much more comfortable on the mound than he is talking about himself. And he knows success is fleeting over a long baseball season.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- In one inning, Orioles pitcher Garrett Olson needed to be rescued. Then it was his opponent's turn. Starting for Team 1 in yesterday's intrasquad game, Olson had trouble locating the plate in the first inning while allowing a run, two hits and a walk and hitting a batter. But in the second, he struck out two and got a fly ball. The left-hander threw so many pitches in the first, he reached his limit with two outs and the bases loaded. Under relaxed intrasquad rules, players were pulled from the field and the game moved to the second inning.

The Orioles' September surge to the cusp of an American League East championship has been characterized by their strong starting pitching in general, and right-hander Miguel Gonzalez in particular. Gonzalez could tell early on against the New York Yankees that he didn't have his best stuff Saturday afternoon. His fastball command was off, making it difficult to put away opposing hitters. Still, Gonzalez held the Yankees to just three runs over six innings, giving the Orioles their 10th quality start over their past 12 games.

The "upset" virus has made its way from Millersville to Severna Park. A day after the unranked Old Mill softball team shocked No. 2 Chesapeake, sixth-ranked North County took out county-leading and No. 7 Severna Park, 1-0, yesterday. The Knights - who improved to 9-6 overall and 8-3 in the county - won only their third game in eight attempts, but tagged the host Falcons with their first loss in the county. "Any day, anybody's going to beat anybody," said North County coach Bobby Boyd.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Orioles nearly recovered from a seven-run deficit last night, but lost, 10-9, to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The closer they got, the more it hurt.While a Tropicana Field crowd of 17,796 celebrated its second-year franchise's dominance against a team lost within its own division, the 49-63 Orioles bemoaned a game in which starting pitcher Jason Johnson (3-6) suffered a beating without rescue.Trailing 10-3 after five innings, the Orioles scored in the last four at-bats and ended the game with leadoff hitter Brady Anderson having stolen his way into scoring position.

Mazzilli Ball turned into Silly Ball last night at Camden Yards. This theory that the Orioles' young pitchers will have an easier transition this season because of the improvements they"ve made - both offensively and defensively - went bad in a hurry. New manager Lee Mazzilli could only wince as he watched Kurt Ainsworth crumble in the second inning, when the Orioles handed the powerful Boston Red Sox lineup the equivalent of six outs. Boston capitalized on three misplays to score seven runs in the second, and a restless crowd of 28,373 watched the Red Sox cruise to a 10-3 victory.

Howard County earned its first state baseball championship June 4, 1983, when Glenelg used a five-run second inning en route to an 8-7 victory over Williamsport at the University of Maryland, College Park. Greg Smith, who went on to play in the Chicago Cubs organization, hit a three-run double in the second inning, and Tim Miles followed with a home run to propel the Gladiators (18-4). Williamsport pitcher Denny Wallech, who struck out 11, lost his first game of the season. His wild pitch in the sixth inning allowed Barry Boone to reach second base and later score what proved to be the deciding run on a Smith single.

CHICAGO - The Orioles' game against the Chicago Cubs this afternoon was delayed more than three hours by rain, with the Orioles trailing 4-2 at the end of the second inning. Play resumed at 5:31 local time (6:31 in Baltimore). Two batters before the game was delayed, Cubs left fielder Chris Coghlan drove in three runs with a bases-clearing triple off Bud Norris in the second inning, capping a four-run second inning that has yet to be completed.  The Orioles will make every effort to complete today's game to avoid having to play a doubleheader on a getaway day Sunday.

TORONTO -- Explaining how right-hander Drew Hutchison has dominated the Orioles over his past five games against them seemed pretty easy for manager Buck Showalter after his team's 5-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night at the Rogers Centre. “He's a very good pitcher,” Showalter said. “When he's one of five [starters] of 30 major league teams, you're talking about the best pitchers in the world. He's obviously capable of that. I'm sure we'll see him a couple more times.” Still, just how Hutchison -- who has a 5.29 ERA against all other teams besides the Orioles this season -- has been so masterful against Showalter's club is baffling.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Inside the visiting clubhouse of Globe Life Park in Arlington, a weary Orioles team wanted to leave their 8-6 loss to the Texas Rangers behind them as quickly as possible. With their bags packed, the Orioles headed home after going a respectable .500 on their three-city, 10-game road trip. But Thursday night's loss, which snapped the Orioles' four-game winning streak, left the team both frustrated and startled. Right-hander Chris Tillman was unable to retire a batter in the second inning for the second time in his past four starts.

PITTSBURGH -- Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman said he wasn't fatigued Wednesday night in the Orioles' 9-8 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates after throwing 117 pitches and notching his first major league shutout last Friday in Kansas City. Tillman said he had no problem with a groin that had bothered him earlier this month or any physical malady that he could use as an excuse for his disaster of an outing Wednesday. No excuses, he said. He was just bad. “Coming off a good [start]

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman isn't sure why it is happening, but he knows he needs to be better early in games if he's going to continue his ascent as a major league starter. On Sunday, in the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros, Tillman walked the first two batters he faced and then gave up a three-run homer to Jason Castro to immediately put his team down three runs. Tillman didn't allow a run during the remainder of his five-inning outing, but it didn't matter. The outcome was determined after the first three batters.

For the second time in his last three starts, Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen gave his team a quality start of seven innings. It's no secret that the Orioles starting rotation has struggled to go deep into games, forcing the bullpen into action early. But Chen is starting to buck that trend. In Friday's 4-3 win over the Houston Astros, he allowed just two runs and five hits. He also allowed two runs over seven innings two starts ago against the Kansas City Royals. After he allowed eight earned runs in his first two outings of the season, Chen has yielded 10 earned runs in his last five starts.

TORONTO - Chris Tillman certainly didn't have his best outing in the Orioles' 10-8 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night, but his ability to make adjustments and stay in the game following a nightmare six-run second inning undoubtedly gave the club a chance. Down, 6-1, at the time, Orioles manager Buck Showalter admitted he was tempted to yank Tillman after the second inning, but he kept him in to see how he'd handle the third. And Tillman retired the Blue Jays in order, striking out Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie.
