Just about every time the Tampa Bay Rays have been mentioned to Buck Showalter in the past month, he can't help but talk about Drew Smyly, the left-handed starter the Rays received from the Detroit Tigers in last month's blockbuster deal that included All-Star left-hander David Price. Showalter has gushed about Smyly for parts of three seasons. The Orioles had inquired about his availability periodically during that span, but they never could land him. Based on his performance in the Rays' 3-1 victory Wednesday at Camden Yards, the Orioles can't be happy about facing Smyly a whole lot over the next four-plus seasons.

Winning a series against the division rival Boston Red Sox, especially at home and when the defending World Series champions are struggling, has to be considered somewhat significant for the Orioles -- even in June. What adds to the accomplishment, though, is how these searching-for-an-identity Orioles did it: With excellent starting pitching. It's nutty, but true. In the Orioles' 6-0 victory Wednesday night, Wei-Yin Chen became the third consecutive Orioles starter to go at least six innings and allow one run or fewer.

Quote: "It hurts more when I swing and miss." - Yankees' Chuck Knoblauch during batting practice after missing more than a week with a sprained left wrist It's a fact: Jeff Suppan, who pitched nine innings Monday, was the first Royals starter to go more than seven innings this season. Who's hot: After 29 games, the Mariners had allowed only four unearned runs, fewest in the majors. Who's not: The Red Sox have thrown out six of 30 base runners attempting to steal. On deck: The Yankees-Rangers game that was rained out April 12 will be played on Aug. 21.

The Blue Jays have fallen out of contention for a playoff spot, and must fend off the Orioles to avoid a fourth-place collision. They were 11-16 last month and fell a season-worst 10 games below .500 July 30. They hadn't been that far under since Sept. 28, 1997. The Blue Jays are 14-28 in their past 42 home games. The Orioles are 5-2 against Toronto this season, winning three of four at SkyDome in late June. Jay Gibbons, left exposed by the Jays in December's Rule 5 draft, has five homers against them.

On the field: With Brady Anderson's pair and Chris Hoiles' smash last night, the Orioles have hit two or more homers in seven straight games. The club record is nine straight, set by the Orioles May 8-16 1987. The Orioles began last night's game with 177 homers, putting them on a pace to hit 254. The single-season Baltimore record is 214, set in 1985.the dugout: The Orioles aren't any different from any other team in the AL: They don't want to give Frank Thomas anything to hit. In his first at-bat last night, with a runner on third and nobody out, David Wells fell behind three balls and no strikes before ending all pretense; catcher Chris Hoiles stood and reached out with his right hand, calling for Wells to walk Thomas intentionally -- in the first inning.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- As boos bellowed from the Silver Stadium crowd yesterday, Bob Milacki thought of a familiar place."It didn't bother me," said Milacki, who gave up a second-inning homer in his first Triple-A start of the season to prompt such a reaction. "That's nothing compared to what they did in Baltimore."But that similarity didn't last long. Milacki pitched seven solid innings to pick up the victory as the Rochester Red Wings defeated the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons, 5-2, in the first game of a double header.

Guthrie still solid Those waiting for Jeremy Guthrie to suffer a letdown this year will have to wait another five days. Guthrie allowed a first-inning home run to Mark Teahen, but not much else over seven innings. He surrendered just two runs on three hits and a walk in seven innings, improving to 3-1 with a 3.02 ERA. In six starts this season spanning 40 1/3 innings, Guthrie has given up just seven earned runs. He's gone at least seven innings in four straight starts. HERNANDEZ FINDS STROKE When Orioles catcher Ramon Hernandez arrived at Kauffman Stadium, he was in a 5-for-36 slump and hadn't had an RBI since May 11. But facing the Royals' pitching staff has a way of breaking a player out of a slump.

The Orioles were forced to call on pitching prospect Kevin Gausman for a spot start Saturday night against the Oakland Athletics because of an injury to their rotation. With his honeymoon of hype over, all the hoopla that accompanied the 23-year-old's previous starts was gone. This was about filling a need. Gausman responded by providing the Orioles with the best start of his major league career and an encouraging glimpse of the flame-throwing right-hander's immense potential. Gausman held an A's team with the American League's best record to just one run over a career-high seven innings in a 6-3 victory.

The Orioles return to Camden Yards today to begin a four-game series against the Cleveland Indians, who are coming off a three-game sweep of the American League Central-leading Detroit Tigers. It's hard to say which Orioles team is going to show up tonight, but the Indians struggle against left-handers, so the club hopes it can get another good outing from Wei-Yin Chen. It's expected that there will be another fresh pitcher in the bullpen tonight after Chris Tillman could only go one-plus inning Wednesday.

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.

It was the kind of game the Orioles needed desperately earlier this month. Paced by a tremendous outing from starter Miguel Gonzalez, a bullpen that preserved the lead and some timely hitting, the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-2, on Thursday night to win the season series against the American League East's last-place club. “It's always the recipe. If you get good starting pitching and turn it over to the bullpen late in the game, it leaves us a lot of chances to win the ballgame,” Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said.

Orioles minor leaguer Eddie Gamboa, pitching for Double-A Bowie, tossed a seven-inning no-hitter in the first game of a doubleheader against the Harrisburg Senators on Sunday afternoon. Gamboa, who is transitioning to becoming a knuckleball pitcher this season , allowed three baserunners - all on walks - and struck out five in the Baysox's 7-0 win at Prince George's Stadium. Over his past two starts, Gamboa has thrown 14 1/3 scoreless innings and allowed just one hit in that span, striking out 12 and walking six. Gamboa took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning during his last start a week ago. Gamboa's no-hitter Sunday was the ninth in Baysox history and the first since Radhames Liz's in 2007.

Despite not allowing an earned run, Maryland split its two games Tuesday to start this year's Heartland Classic baseball tournament in Norman, Okla. Tayler Stiles (Bishop McNamara) set a tournament record for strikeouts in a seven-inning game with 16 as Maryland defeated Georgia, 3-0, to rebound from an earlier 3-2 loss to host Oklahoma. Stiles, who will play at Maryland next season, allowed two hits and walked two batters in the complete-game victory. The state's high school all-star team rallied to tie its first game Tuesday in the top of the seventh inning, but Oklahoma scored its third unearned run of the game in the bottom of the frame for a one-run victory.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Orioles had an idea of what to expect from Taiwanese left-hander Wei-Yin Chen in his first major league season. But the 27-year-old rookie set a high standard for himself. After striking out a career-high 12 batters on Sunday in Baltimore, he expressed his frustration in being unable to go six innings. After starts, he's regularly said through his interpreter that he measures his success by how deep he's able to go into games. In Saturday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, Chen wasted few pitches, working ahead in the count and challenging an aggressive Tampa Bay lineup, leading the Orioles to a 4-0 win over the Rays in front of an announced crowd of 20,612.

This has been Orioles rookie Wei-Yin Chen's first foray into interleague play, where American League pitchers are forced to bat in National League parks, but the Taiwanese left-hander has already seen enough to know he's not a fan. “Not really, because I hate hitting,” Chen said through an interpreter. But Chen and the Orioles left Turner Field on Sunday afternoon able to boast that they beat the Braves at their own game - excelling in an NL style of baseball that leans on manufactured runs, solid pitching and technique-minded defense - for a 2-0 series-clinching win over Atlanta.
