The Orioles bullpen went into the sixth inning of Sunday afternoon's game against the Tampa Bay Rays having allowed just one run over its past 30 innings. But a struggling Tampa Bay Rays offense came to life with a seven-run sixth inning -- all of the runs coming against the Orioles bullpen -- as 11 batters went to the plate. Six of the runs were scored with two outs in the inning off relievers Evan Meek and Brian Matusz. The Orioles entered the inning leading, 4-3, but No. 9 hitter Kevin Kiermaier hit a solo homer to right field off Meek with one out to tie the game.

Gary Thorne needed approximately zero seconds to declare Nelson Cruz's sixth-inning hit a home run. He was less accurate in his estimation of just where the titanic blast would land inside Target Field. Your browser does not support iframes. The estimated length of Cruz's eighth rome run was 424 feet, but that just seems low. Don't you think so, Manny?

Calvert Hall coach Lou Eckerl went into this baseball season not worried about his team's hitting. You needed only to watch Eckerl's Cardinals swing the bat on a glorious spring afternoon at St. Paul's in Brooklandville yesterday to see why.

Numbers can be deceiving. Just ask the fifth-ranked Chesapeake softball team, which got two hits but still beat No. 6 Glen Burnie, 1-0, yesterday. The visiting Cougars (4-0, 2-0 Anne Arundel County) defeated a third Top 15 opponent and extended their unbeaten streak to four games. The key for Chesapeake was the stellar pitching of junior Lindsay Ettinger, who defused volatile situations in three straight innings to earn the shutout. "Everything was working well today," said Ettinger, who collected her fourth win of the season by registering first-strike counts against 12 of the 26 Gophers batters she faced and finishing with three strikeouts.

Scott Feldman entered his first home start in an Orioles uniform on Monday more than familiar with his opponent. Before signing with the Chicago Cubs this offseason, Feldman spent the first eight years of his career with the Texas Rangers, so the Orioles' newest acquisition knew the Rangers can score runs in a hurry. Despite carrying a one-run lead into the sixth inning against his former team, Feldman and the Orioles fell victim to a Texas-sized sixth-run sixth inning in an 8-5 defeat in Monday's series opener in front of an announced 24,619 at Camden Yards.

Everything unraveled for the Orioles in the sixth inning of Monday night's game at Camden Yards. They led, 3-2, at the start of the inning, but the Texas Rangers slowly singled Orioles starter Scott Feldman out of the game and into the dugout. The Rangers took a 4-3 lead on Feldman and scored four more after Troy Patton entered with the bases loaded. The Orioles offense went down 1-2-3 in the bottom half of the inning. The sixth-inning struggles are nothing new for the Orioles.

In the end, the umpires got the call right. But it sure took long enough. And a rough five-game homestand for the Orioles got even rougher in the sixth inning Sunday when Tampa Bay's Matt Joyce hit a soaring fly ball down the right field line in the Rays' eventual 3-1 win. That's when all the fun started. Actually, it was only fun if your idea of a good time is a long game delay while both managers and all four umpires yak endlessly about whether Joyce's shot was a foul ball, a double or a homer.

ATLANTA -   Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz's outing on Friday night came down to one batter - and specifically one pitch - against a rookie shortstop playing in just his 12th game in the major leagues. Matusz spent most of the night dodging disasters against the Braves at Turner Field, making key pitches to get critical outs. With two outs in the sixth, he was one out away from getting a quality start - and inched closer to his fifth win in his last seven decisions. But that's when Matusz hung a two-seamer split - one that was supposed to be low and away - over the plate to 22-year old Andrelton Simmons, and the Braves shortstop of the future sent Matusz's mistake into the left-field stands for a two-run homer.

Brian Matusz didn't dodge the details following the Orioles' 9-2 loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon. The Orioles' 25-year-old left-hander, saddled with the game's longest active losing streak as well as the shadows of a lost 2011 season, was openly honest in admitting his increasing frustration. He wanted to shut the door on what could have been the Orioles' first three-game sweep in Toronto since 2005. He wanted to beat a Blue Jays team he had pitched to an 18.56 ERA against.

Severna Park catcher Brandon Cavil often had a rough time during Friday's game against South River, but he erased that with one swing of the bat. Cavil hit a two-run, two-out single in the seventh inning that gave No. 7 Severna Park an 11-10 victory over visiting South River in an Anne Arundel County game. Cavil came up with the bases loaded. South River (12-4, 10-2) had taken a 10-9 lead on Nick Sia's RBI double in the top inning, but Severna Park (10-4, 8-4) wouldn't give in. The Falcons loaded the bases with one out before Scott Mitchell struck out Bradley Keith.

In a game filled with dramatic moments, Centennial sophomore Scott Swinson's RBI single in the top of the seventh stood out. At the time, the visiting Eagles were down to their last out, and trailed No. 11-ranked Glenelg by one run but had a runner at second base. Swinson banged a fastball to right field and tied the score as pinch runner Steve Czbaranek slid home, just beating the throw to the plate. The game between co-defending county champions stayed tied at 1 through eight innings before it was called on account of darkness.

The Washington Nationals unleashed a rare display of hitting clout on Tuesday night, hitting three home runs against the New York Mets. The catch was, they all were of the solo variety, and while the Mets didn't collect more than a double, that was enough to send Washington to its fifth loss in six games, 6-4, and overshadow catcher Wilson Ramos' first multi-homer performance. Before an announced 14,603 at Nationals Park, Ramos connected off New York starter Chris Young in the second and fourth innings, and his second tied the score at 3. But Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann got into trouble in the sixth, and reliever Doug Slaten failed to bail him out when Mets catcher Josh Thole's two-RBI double produced what would be the decisive runs.

A clutch two-out RBI single by Cesar Izturis off former teammate Chris Ray in the eighth inning set off a celebration in the Orioles' dugout -- and set the stage for another disappointing loss. Nelson Cruz's sacrifice fly in the ninth off Jason Berken scored Michael Young and gave the Texas Rangers a 4-3 victory before an announced 22,321 on Wednesday night at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. It was the Orioles' fourth loss in the past five games and dropped them to 13-28 on the season.
