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.

Garrett Gibson looks more like an offensive tackle than a first baseman, but underestimate his abilities at your own peril. Parkside learned that on Saturday. Gibson hit a single to center field with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh to give No. 15 Southern of Anne Arundel County (17-9) its first-ever baseball state title with a 3-2 win over Salisbury's Parkside (20-4). Gibson also contributed Southern's only extra-base hit and made a sparkling defensive play in the second inning when he jumped high in the air to snare a line drive.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For the majority of this young season, the Orioles' vaunted offense - which led the major leagues in home runs last year and then added slugger Nelson Cruz this offseason - has failed to live up to its advanced billing. On Saturday, in a 1-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals, the Orioles' offensive struggles nearly took a historic turn. Royals left-hander Danny Duffy retired the first 20 batters he faced and was just seven outs away from pitching the first perfect game against the Orioles in modern franchise history.

Ken Burns' Baseball 8 p.m. [MLB Network] The edition of the documentary deals with the dominant Yankees, Dodgers and Giants of the 1950s, and it's the "seventh inning" - which means halfway through the show, Harry Caray (left) will come on and sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Or perhaps we'll get a clip of John Denver doing "Thank God I'm a Country Boy."

When Manny Machado struck out looking for the first out of the seventh inning Tuesday, it looked like there would be at least some positive to take away from the at-bat, as Nick Markakis beat Texas catcher A.J. Pierzynski's throw into second base. Trailing 7-4, perhaps Markakis in scoring position could ignite another late-inning Orioles rally or at least cut the deficit a little more. But any sense of momentum quickly vanished from Camden Yards, as home plate umpire Fieldin Culbreth called Markakis out at second as a result of batter's interference.

Orioles reliever Pedro Strop has heard the boos from the Camden Yards crowd this year as he's struggled to find the form that made him one of the best setup men in baseball for most of last season. But as Strop walked off the mound Wednesday afternoon after a two-run seventh-inning lead quickly turned into a four-run deficit, the boos from the announced 25,964 reached their loudest this season - and likely the loudest toward an Oriole since maligned former closer Kevin Gregg's tenure.

On a day honoring arguably the greatest third baseman of all time -- legendary Orioles Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson -- the rookie phenom now patrolling the hot corner for Baltimore showed a little of what he can do. Twenty-year-old third baseman Manny Machado stood attentively in the Orioles dugout as Robinson -- a sculpture of him just unveiled in the plaza behind center field at Camden Yards -- stood on the field and stirred up an announced sellout...

ATLANTA - Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel took a no-hitter into the seventh inning tonight against the Braves tonight at Turner Field. Jason Heyward's two-out single to left in the seventh inning broke up Hammel's no-hit bid. Hammel retired 17 straight at one point, allowed just one baserunner -- a walk to Dan Uggla to open the second inning - until issuing another walk to Uggla with two outs in the seventh. Then Heyward came to the plate and lined a 3-1 pitch for a single.

Few things are more exciting for a high school baseball player than to drive in the winning run in the bottom of the last inning. Wednesday, that opportunity came to Archbishop Curley's Andrew Shinnick, who couldn't wait to take his swings against hard-throwing C. Milton Wright reliever Steve Rappe in the bottom of the seventh. With one out and two strikes, the senior catcher unloaded a double that drove in both the tying and winning runs in a 5-4 victory. "I was pretty excited," Shinnick said.

Article, Page 2C New York Yankees "God Bless America" They went the patriotic route during the seventh inning after Sept. 11 and have no intention of stopping. That bumped "Cotton Eyed Joe" from the seventh to eighth inning. However, the Yanks are best known for cranking up Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" after every home game. They sometimes play Liza Minnelli's version, but there's no comparison. It's like sending Barbra Streisand up to pinch hit for Babe Ruth. Baltimore Orioles "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" Dee Belanger, wife of glory-days shortstop Mark Belanger, knew John Denver.

None of it would have mattered -- not the six strong innings from resurgent rookie Zach Britton, not J.J. Hardy's latest clutch hit, not the Orioles' stirring comeback against a seemingly in-control David Price -- had first baseman Mark Reynolds not made the right decision on the game's final play Friday. Reynolds realized early that Hardy's throw from short was going to bounce before it reached first base. He also knew that if the ball got by him, the Tampa Bay Rays, who had the bases loaded and two outs when Brandon Guyer hit the ground ball in the hole, were going to score two runs and deal the Orioles the latest in a season full of gut-wrenching losses.

Since the day Vladimir Guerrero walked into the Orioles' spring training clubhouse for the first time, his mere presence has been the source of much fascination from his new teammates. It wasn't just his prodigious batting practice blasts, his Hall of Fame-worthy statistics and his ability to make contact with pretty much any pitch in the same area code as home plate. It was the boyish enthusiasm the 36-year-old plays with, and the smile that's on his face no matter what he does on a baseball field.
