After the Orioles' 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night, manager Buck Showalter evoked former Orioles skipper Earl Weaver, who was alwas a fan of the three-run homer. “I was thinking Earl would be real happy about the scenario tonight,” Showalter said. “Good pitching, good defense and a guy hits a three-run homer. I was hoping it would hold up. I'd like to have another one.” While rookie right-hander Miguel Gonzalez stole the spotlight with seven innings of one-run, three-hit ball, outfielder Steve Pearce provided all the Orioles' offense, hitting a three-run homer off left-handerC.J.

At 3 p.m. Wednesday, Steve Pearce was in Frederick preparing to take batting practice for his third rehabilitation game with the High-A Keys. By 7 p.m., Pearce was at Camden Yards, batting ninth as the Orioles' designated hitter in an 11-0 loss to the Houston Astros. Pearce was a rare offensive bright spot for the Orioles in Wednesday's blowout defeat, going 2-for-3 with a strikeout in his first major league action since June 19. “I was going about a million miles per hour,” Pearce said.

Life has been so charmed for the Orioles in the past few days that on Thursday, they chased one of baseball's best pitchers with a weather report. They followed that up with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers without hitting one long ball - the Orioles' only homerless victory since April 26 - to secure a four-game sweep at Camden Yards for the first time since 2008. The offense was paced by a career-best, four-hit effort from a guy they released in April, allowing the Orioles to improve to 4-0 while playing one hitter short during Manny Machado's five-game suspension.

The Orioles have outrighted outfielder Steve Pearce to Triple-A Norfolk, the team announced today. Pearce spent two separate stints with the Orioles last season, hitting .254/.321/.437 in 28 games with the big league club. He also spent time with the Houston Astros and New York Yankees last season. The Orioles signed Pearce to a major-league contract just before last month's deadline to tender contracts to arbitration eligible players. So the move could be an indicator that the Orioles need Pearce's 40-man roster spot to make an upcoming move.

First baseman-outfielder Steve Pearce was claimed on unconditional release waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, according to an industry source, but he rejected the claim, became a free agent and re-signed with the Orioles. Pearce now will re-join the club after being designated for assignment last Tuesday and put on release waivers Sunday. He could play for the Orioles on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Camden Yards, if rain doesn't force a postponement for a second straight day. It has been a whirlwind week for Pearce, but it had to be. The Orioles needed to make the move with Pearce quickly, because they were utilizing a rule that allowed them to bypass a 30-day waiting period to re-sign a released player.

TORONTO -- The Orioles recalled left-hander T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk before Tuesday's game and designated outfielder Steve Pearce for assignment. McFarland, who was scheduled to start for Norfolk on Tuesday, will add depth to a bullpen depleted from pitching 7 1/3 innings over the past two games in Boston. Three relievers - left-handers Zach Britton and Brian Matusz, and right-hander Darren O'Day - worked back-to-back days. McFarland and right-hander Josh Stinson gave the Orioles two long-relief options Tuesday.

And outfielder Steve Pearce is back in Baltimore. With this season the way it has gone, did you expect anything less? Pearce, 29, was with the Orioles for about two months this year and had a couple big games. But he was waived at the end of July and claimed by the Houston Astros and then waived by the Astros and claimed by the New York Yankees, who actually had him in their minors earlier this year before selling him to the Orioles on June 2. The Yankees claimed him from the Astros on Aug. 27 and then waived him this week - and now he is back with the Orioles, who claimed him today.

SARASOTA, Fla. - In a battle that came down to the final day of spring training games and was compared by one of the candidates to "two heavyweights battling against each other," Steve Pearce beat Conor Jackson for the final spot on the Orioles' 25-man Opening Day roster. Pearce, a first baseman-outfielder who changed organizations five times last season, was told he made the team before the Orioles' 7-1 win over the New York Mets in their Grapefruit League finale. "It was tough," Pearce said.

As the temperature rises every summer in Baltimore, so does the number of balls that carry out of Camden Yards. Hits similar to ones that landed at the warning track two weeks ago are now finding their way into the seats. And the Orioles lineup is built to take full advantage of such a summer swoon. The Orioles led the major leagues with 46 home runs in June, and they continued their power surge into July. They hit three homers, including Nelson Cruz's 26th of the season on his 34th birthday, in an 8-3 victory over the struggling Texas Rangers on Tuesday night in front of an announced 19,150.

As Ubaldo Jimenez walked off the mound in the middle of the eighth inning of the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night, he was greeted by the home crowd at Camden Yards with a standing ovation. The reception hasn't always been as warm for Jimenez, who was signed to a club-record four-year, $50 million contract in February. He has heard his share of boos from the seating bowl after many disappointing and short outings. On Monday, Jimenez could stand tall, and he touched the bill of his cap to the crowd after delivering his deepest outing of the season and earning his first win in an Orioles uniform in front of the home crowd . “As a ballplayer, that's what you play for, to be there for the fans, to get a good [cheer]

Chris Davis hadn't made a start at third base since the last day of the 2011 season, so he didn't even have a third baseman's glove. But with regular third baseman Manny Machado beginning to serve his five-game suspension Monday, the club moved its starting first baseman across the diamond for the series opener against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards. The move gave the Orioles the chance to use both Steve Pearce and Delmon Young in the lineup. Including Monday, Davis has made 67 major league starts at third base, including 25 in 2011 - 17 of those coming with the Orioles after the club acquired him in a trade-deadline deal with Texas.

Before Monday's game against the Texas Rangers, Orioles slugger Chris Davis joked that it might take years until he was completely comfortable playing third base. But the club's regular first baseman, manning the other side of the infield because of Manny Machado's suspension, didn't look too out of place in the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Rangers. Starting at the position for the first time since 2011, Davis recorded four assists, receiving loud ovations for each one from the announced 15,252 at Camden Yards.

Struggling first baseman Chris Davis was out of the starting lineup Monday for the second time in eight games, dealing with a sagging batting average and lingering oblique soreness through which he has been playing. Before the game, he said he wasn't excited about losing at-bats, even if it was against one of the American League's toughest left-handed pitchers in the Chicago White Sox's Chris Sale. But Davis said he accepted the decision because he understood that maybe he wasn't one of the Orioles' best nine hitters right now. Well, apparently being the club's 10th best hitter was plenty good enough.

The Orioles are looking to take the rubber match of this three-game series against the Rays at Tropicana Field.  The teams are tied for first place in the AL East with identical 30-23 records. Newcomer Steve Pearce, who arrived in Tampa Bay around 8 p.m. yesterday, will immediately jump into the lineup, starting in right field and hitting eighth. Pearce seems to know a few guys in the clubhouse. He played with Ronny Paulino in Pittsburgh and attended South Carolina with Steve Tolleson.

As it often does, it became summer very quickly here in Baltimore and that is bad news for all of us. I said during the seemingly countless cold, rainy nights at baseball stadiums that we'd kill for that weather in a month, and now I probably would. Anyway, here's the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's sports headlines. - The Ravens opened mandatory minicamp on a scorcher in Owings Mills, and it's only going to be hotter today, so wish the boys luck. Several players spoke to the media for the first time this offseason, including Haloti Ngata, who said he wants to be a Raven for life ; Dennis Pitta, who said he's fully healthy after last summer's hip surgery ; and Elvis Dumervil, who feels he needs to improve on last year . - A grand slam from Chris Davis and a two-run home run from Steve Pearce helped the Orioles to a 7-5 win over Tampa Bay , putting the third-place Orioles (36-34)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- There's no denying that the Orioles offense sometimes can rely too much on home runs, which is one of the reasons why the club can be so frustrating to watch when its power hitters go silent. Following an especially frustrating one-run loss to the last-place Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, the Orioles recorded their best offensive output in the past 14 games as a pair of homers sent them to a 7-5 win Tuesday night in front of an announced 10,803 at Tropicana Field.
