For McDonogh hurler Mike Steller, the transformation occurred during a summer tournament with the Yankee Rebels."It was the last tournament of the season, and I was in a tough game that went into extra innings. There were a lot of pro and college scouts there, and it was a lot of pressure to be under," said Steller, a senior right-hander."At times, I was tired, and I was thinking, 'this is too much.' But I didn't let myself give up mentally. I just got this will to win that got me through, and I won the game."

Opposing pitchers just can't stop Glynn Davis. The center fielder for High-A Frederick ranks third among qualified players in the Carolina League with a .316 batting average and is seventh in OPS at .826. He has recorded a hit in each of the Keys' last six games. Signed by the Orioles in 2010, Davis has become a dangerous leadoff hitter this year. The 22-year-old has upped his batting average from .234 last season, but he's most dangerous when he gets on base. Since 2011, the outfielder has 90 stolen bases, and has been thrown out just 29 times.

CHICAGO - When Scott Feldman walked into the Orioles' clubhouse U.S. Cellular Field on Wednesday, he saw several familiar faces from his days with the Texas Rangers, only in different uniforms. And when Feldman made his Orioles debut later that night against the Chicago White Sox, his old buddies helped pick him up in a 4-2 win in front of an announced crowd of 26,001 on Chicago's South Side. Chris Davis, who played parts of four seasons with Feldman in Texas, drove in three of the Orioles' four runs, hitting a solo homer in the fourth inning and breaking a 2-2 tie with a two-run double in the eighth.

Miguel Gonzalez was certain not to get blinded by the bright lights of Yankee Stadium. The 28-year-old rookie's fifth career major league start came in the Bronx on Monday night against one of the most potent lineups in baseball, but Gonzalez took himself back to his first career start 24 days ago, pitching across the country in front of a big crowd in Anaheim, just an hour away from his hometown against an Angels organization that drafted him. ...

There's little debate to the notion that Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz has pitched well this spring training -- especially considering he's coming off an awful 2011 season -- but whether he's dazzled the team brass enough to earn a starting rotation spot remains to be seen. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has made it clear that this year, rotation spots will be earned, not given away. He has said all spring that Matusz will be evaluated on his entire body of work, with his dazzling moments as equal as his stumbles.

Sarasota, Fla. -- Brian Matusz gave up three runs on six hits during his two-inning performance in the home exhibition opener at Ed Smith Stadium on Monday night, but the pitching line didn't tell the whole story in the Orioles' 10-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Matusz obviously wanted to get off to a good start after struggling through a disastrous 2011 season, but the baseball gods clearly weren't on his side. Of his six hits, one was a bloop single, one was a bunt single, one was an infield nubber and one was a 10-hopper through the infield.

Before Thursday's matinee at Camden Yards, Buck Showalter said it would be a challenge for Alfredo Simon to match last week's quality start against the New York Yankees. The Orioles manager figured Simon's stuff would be fresh in the minds of baseball's highest-scoring team. Showalter was right about Simon, but the Yankees never saw the Orioles' bullpen coming. After Simon was removed from the game following the fourth inning, five relievers combined to pitch six no-hit innings as the Orioles beat New York, 5-4, in 10 innings.

As a rookie in the big leagues, Orioles left-hander Zach Britton has encountered plenty of celebratory firsts this season. On Friday night, in an uninspiring 8-4 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, Britton experienced several rather unpleasant ones, including his first grand slam allowed, first string of consecutive poor outings and first time he hasn't pitched into the sixth inning as a big leaguer.

Injured second baseman Brian Roberts was in the Orioles clubhouse before Thursday's game, goofing around with interim manager Juan Samuel and first base coach John Shelby and making it known that he is ready to re-join his team. "If it were my decision, I would have played Monday," Roberts said, laughing. "That's where you see how much decision-making [power] I have. " Because of a herniated disk in his back, Roberts last played for the Orioles in the club's home opener April 9. He is in the midst of a rehabilitation assignment at Double-A Bowie, where he has six hits in 14 at-bats over three games.

The senior had five hits in six trips -- including a walk-off single in the ninth inning -- as the Blue Jays beat Wisconsin-Whitewater, 12-11, in an elimination game yesterday at Fox Cities Stadium.
