BOSTON - Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen had never thrown fewer than four innings or given up more than seven runs in any of his starts as a major leaguer. He picked a particularly inopportune time to do both. The Orioles embarked Tuesday on their crucial nine-game road trip against three postseason contenders, kicking it off with a deflating 13-2 loss to the American League East-leading Boston Red Sox. “We got our butts kicked tonight and there's no doubt about that. But it's over now,” Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said.

Adam Jones drove in three runs - including a go-ahead two-run double in the eighth inning - as the U.S. beat Canada, 9-4, Sunday to advance to the World Baseball Classic's second round. The U.S. was trailing 3-2 and five outs from elimination when the Orioles' center fielder lined a double into the gap in left-center against Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Jimmy Henderson . Jones then scored on a single by Shane Victorino , and Eric Hosmer added a three-run double in the ninth.

If there is a lasting image from the Orioles' 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, it's pinch-runner Alexi Casilla standing at third base, arms spread wide, palms in the air, mouthing “What happened?” to coach Bobby Dickerson. The answer wasn't what Casilla, the potential tying run, wanted to hear: Boston right fielder Shane Victorino had dashed to his left, caught Ryan Flaherty's liner with little trouble and threw to first to double up Casilla and end the game. In the recent past, “What happened?

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard asked for $18 million in salary arbitration yesterday, the third-highest figure submitted since the process began in 1974. Philadelphia offered $14 million to the 2006 National League Most Valuable Player, a raise of $4 million. Howard hit 48 homers and had 146 RBIs last year, helping the Phillies win their first World Series title since 1980. Houston Astros pitcher Roger Clemens set the record for highest request in arbitration at $22 million in 2005.

Justin Duchscherer accomplished his one goal Tuesday, walking off the mound without pain in his left hip. Duchscherer threw two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and walking one in his first Grapefruit League start and first game action since April 29. The Orioles lost to the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-3, before an announced 9,039 at Bright House Field. They are 4-4-2 on the exhibition season. They took a one-run lead into the ninth, but Rule 5 pick Adrian Rosario failed to get an out in the inning, allowing two walks, a bunt single and a game-winning two-run single to Carlos Rivero.

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Rollins was in a rut. Calf and hamstring problems limited the former National League Most Valuable Player to 88 games in the regular season. He was 1-for-15 in the postseason. But the Giants got him started. Jonathan Sanchez helped him drive in his first run of the postseason by walking him with the bases loaded. Third baseman Mike Fontenot gifted him a hit by letting a popup plop onto in the infield. Then Rollins drove a down-the-middle fastball by Santiago Casilla to the top of the wall in right-center for a bases-clearing double that blew open the game and sent the Phillies on their way to a 6-1 victory on Sunday night in Game 2 of the NLCS.

SAN FRANCISCO — Matt Cain was always something of a hard-luck loser, an All-Star pitcher with an earned-run average in the mid-3s but a record that didn't reflect it. His career ERA is 3.45, and his lifetime regular-season record 57-62. But Tuesday, Cain won the Giants' most important game since they reached the World Series eight years ago, hurling seven shutout innings in a 3-0 victory over the Phillies in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. The Giants took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and will host the next two games.

SAN FRANCISCO — Roy Halladay pitched a perfect game in May. He pitched a no-hitter in his postseason debut. But Brad Lidge said Halladay's performance Thursday night in a 4-2 victory over the Giants that extended the Phillies' season ranked among his greatest pitching achievements. By itself, Halladay's line in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series wasn't particularly remarkable. He pitched six innings, giving up two runs and six hits. But from the second inning on, Halladay pitched with a mild groin pull.

Rangers, Braves fortified Stephen Miller Morning Call Two of the biggest trade deadline acquisitions — Hunter Pence going to the Phillies and Carlos Beltran joining the Giants — came from teams already well-positioned to reach the playoffs. The Rangers and Braves are teams that were in more precarious spots but should play into October after their recent moves. Texas added two of baseball's top setup men in Mike Adams and Koji Uehara, fortifying a bullpen that ranked 11th in the American League in ERA. Those additions should help the Rangers hold off the Angels in the AL West.

The Orioles' likely Opening Day starter and closer had trouble combating the wind and a left-handed-heavy Philadelphia Phillies lineup in a 13-6 loss before an announced 8,129 at Ed Smith Stadium. Starter Jeremy Guthrie was touched for four runs and six hits in four innings, though that included a wind-aided two-run homer by Raul Ibanez in the first inning. "You always try to keep the ball down, so whether the wind's blowing out or not, you try to get the ball to stay down and get ground balls," said Guthrie, who was making his third spring start.

SAN FRANCISCO — Five days after their initial encounter, Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay will go at it again. This time, with even more at stake. Halladay will be pitching in Game 5 Thursday to extend the Phillies' postseason after the Giants' walk-off 6-5 victory Wednesday. Juan Uribe's ninth-inning sacrifice fly scored Aubrey Huff to give the Giants a 3-1 lead in the National League Championship Series. Huff reached on a one-out single and moved to third on Buster Posey's single, his fourth hit of the game.

SAN FRANCISCO — The last time Cole Hamels was on the mound, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said he saw the Cole Hamels of old. The way Manuel was talking — "When he's really good, he's good the same way he was before" — he made Hamels sound like someone in his mid-30s. Or someone recovering from a major elbow operation. Hamels is 26. His left arm has never been cut open. But Hamels, who will face the Giants on Tuesday in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, has already experienced enough in his relatively brief career to be enjoying a revival.
