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.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz is available for today's series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays after being bedridden the past two days with an illness that included a brief stay in a local hospital. Matusz said he first felt sick Friday morning, and that afternoon he went to a local hospital, where he received IV fluids and wasn't released until late at night. "I think that was just to get on IVs and make sure everything was OK and make sure that it wasn't a stomach problem,” Matusz said.

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.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said since the beginning of the season that he wanted to get outfielder Steve Pearce a start. But with Nelson Cruz entrenched in the lineup and Delmon Young playing well, Pearce remained on the bench. At least until today. Cruz is getting a day off, and Pearce is in the lineup as the designated hitter. He'll be batting sixth. He's the last hitter on the 25-man roster to get a start. He was hitless in three at-bats over two games coming into Sunday.

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.

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.

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.

The Orioles agreed to terms with outfielder Steve Pearce, agreeing to a one-year, $850,000 contract, avoiding arbitration in his second year of arbitration eligibility, according to an industry source. Pearce's deal includes some performance bonus incentives. Pearce, 30, made $700,000 last year in his first year of arbitration eligibility.   Pearce hit .261/.362/.420 with four homers and 13 RBIs in 139 plate appearances this past season. He had two stints on the disabled list with wrist injuries that affected his swing.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- In Dan Connolly's 25-man Opening Day roster breakdown , he said that the battle for the final two bench spots -- between Steve Pearce, Nolan Reimold, Delmon Young and Michael Almanzar -- will be the top roster battle as spring training winds down. I asked Orioles manager Buck Showalter about Young, the 28-year-old former No. 1 overall pick who has a bona fide track record as a hitter. Young went through a 1-for-19 stretch this spring, but is 6-for-12 recently with two doubles and a homer.

TAMPA - A glance at the stat sheet shows that outfielder Henry Urrutia is enjoying a tremendous spring. The 27-year-old Cuban defector is hitting .300 in Grapefruit League play. He has hits in four of his last five game, hitting .400 (6-for-15) in that span. In the Orioles' 6-0 loss to the New York Yankees Thursday afternoon at Steinbrenner Field, Urrutia was 2-for-3 with a double. There's no doubt that Urrutia has made tremendous strides in all aspects of his game since his first professional season in the United States last year.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Making his second Grapefruit League appearance of the spring Saturday night, Kevin Gausman wore a pair of new prescription glasses in a game for the first time  - and had a formidable Red Sox lineup seeing double. Gausman retired the first seven hitters he faced on his way to three shutout innings in the Orioles' 13-2 win over the Red Sox at JetBlue Park. Gausman, 23, struck out three of the first four batters he faced, as Daniel Nava, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli all went down on split-fingered fastballs.

The Orioles don't have to make an official decision for a week, but they will tender contracts to all nine of their arbitration-eligible players, according to the club's top executive. “We are planning on tendering those guys,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. “Most of the guys we have there are real good players.” The group consists of catcher Matt Wieters, first baseman Chris Davis, outfielders Nolan Reimold and Steve Pearce, relievers Troy Patton, Brian Matusz, Tommy Hunter and Jim Johnson, and starter Bud Norris.

OK, how nutty is this season going? Consider outfielder-infielder Steve Pearce, whom the Orioles bought for minimal cash from the New York Yankees on June 2. He exercised an opt-out clause in his contract. Had he stayed withTriple-AScranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pearce would be in the middle of a 13-game road trip. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team has been playing basically on the road all year, using the Rochester park as a home field at times because their park is under construction.

The Orioles placed outfielder Steve Pearce on the 15-day disabled list with left wrist tendinitis before Friday's game and activated right-hander Miguel Gonzalez from the paternity list. Even though Pearce has made just one start over the past 10 days, the Orioles could only backdate the move to Thursday because he played as a late-inning sub Wednesday, so he isn't eligible to return until July 5 against the Yankees. “Stevie's wrist has been bothering him for a while and we decided to try to get it 100 percent, really both of them, but more the left one than the right one,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

When the Oakland Athletics lost in Seattle early Saturday evening, the night's contest between the Orioles and the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards technically became meaningless shortly after the first pitch. The Orioles were eliminated from postseason consideration earlier in the week and, courtesy of the Athletics' loss, the Red Sox officially had wrapped up the American League's best record - consequently earning home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. But it was still the last Saturday night at the Yards, the division rival Red Sox were in town and an announced crowd of 36,556 was plenty into the penultimate baseball game of the season.

Despite not making the playoffs this season, the Orioles can say they got the best of the American League East champion Boston Red Sox. The Orioles' 6-5 comeback win over Boston clinched a season-series win over the Red Sox, 10-8, making them the only AL East team to have a winning record against Boston this season. They also clinched their first back-to-back season-series wins over the Red Sox since the 1991-1992 seasons. The Red Sox will still have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, while the Orioles still will empty their lockers after Sunday afternoon's regular-season finale and part ways for the offseason.
