FREDERICK -- Fresh off a scoreless frame in the MLB Futures Game, a showpiece for the world's top prospects, Orioles phenom Dylan Bundy continued his steady progress through the Carolina League on Saturday night against the Carolina Mudcats (CLE).  Bundy fanned eight batters in five two-hit innings, allowing an unearned run and walking one for the High A Frederick Keys. With the performance, Bundy lowered his season ERA to 3.15, though when he left the game, Bundy was in line for the loss.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris celebrated one of his eight strikeouts in Monday night's win over Anaheim with particular vigor. Norris faced the best player in baseball, Mike Trout, with the bases loaded and two outs, and when Trout watched a 95-mph heater apparently grab the outside corner for strike three, Norris strutted back to the dugout and, well, showed him where that kind of heat came from . Trout argued the call, though...

PHILADELPHIA -- In the general scheme of things, one win when you're 15 1/2 games out and 11 below .500 is no reason to jump up and down and get all excited.But, hey, the Phillies needed this one.They hadn't beaten the Cardinals since, well, it's hard to remember, but it certainly wasn't during the first three games of this series or the whole series in St. Louis last week (try early April). They hadn't won since Sunday, when they sent Dwight Gooden for a loop, then had to all but beg for a 10-9 win.And they hadn't felt good about themselves for a long, long time.

Few pitchers can shut down the Orioles' No. 3 through No. 6 hitters for an entire game. But on Saturday afternoon, Adam Jones, Nelson Cruz, Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy combined to go 0-for-16 with 10 strikeouts. New York Yankees rookie Shane Greene tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings in just his second major league start, and a trio of relievers followed to seal the Orioles' 3-0 defeat. “There's no substitute for getting in there in the box off of [a new pitcher],” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

CLEVELAND -- Why not strike out 23 times and win? The Orioles have spent all season doing things that had never been done while swinging the bat.In striking out 23 times while eliminating the Cleveland Indians yesterday, the Orioles surpassed the record for most strikeouts in a victory, previously held by the 1972 Cincinnati Reds, who struck out 22 times in a 19-inning regular-season game with the Los Angeles Dodgers, yet won, 2-1. The Orioles' 23 strikeouts...

You thought Mo Vaughn was big? You thought Jack Clark struck out a lot? You thought the Red Sox, with sluggers like Clark, Tom Brunansky and Mike Greenwell, were going to light up the AL East sky with homers?Think again. The Detroit Tigers, who take on the Orioles in the first of a three-game set tonight at Memorial Stadium (7:35, HTS), will match their sluggers with any in the major leagues, and probably come out on top.With a whopping 512, the Tigers lead the majors in strikeouts, but they also have the most home runs in both leagues, with 93. Their closest competition for the major-league lead is the Chicago Cubs, who have 80.First among the Motown sluggers is the man who makes Mo Vaughn look not so big, Cecil Fielder, last year's major-league leader in home runs, with 51.This year, Fielder is tied for second in the AL in home runs with 18. His extra girth accumulated during the offseason does not appear to be detrimental to his productivity -- he leads the major leagues with 60 RBIs.

CINCINNATI -- David Cone allowed four hits and struck out a season-high 13 in eight innings to lead the New York Mets to a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds last night.Cone (6-3) allowed only a pair of unearned runs after overcoming a shaky first inning. The right-hander has given up just three earned runs in his last three starts.Cone's 13 strikeouts matched his career high and pushed him head of teammate Dwight Gooden for the National League lead with 74. He also fanned 13 last Aug. 18 against San Francisco.

Chicago Cubs right-hander and likely Hall of Famer Greg Maddux has been characterized as many things during his brilliant big league career. No one's ever labeled him a strikeout pitcher, though. Yet Tuesday he fanned the San Francisco Giants' Omar Vizquel to record his 3,000th career strikeout, becoming the 13th member of the elite club. He's also the ninth pitcher to reach both 300 wins and 3,000 strikeouts. That's what happens when you consistently locate your pitches and keep taking the ball game after game year after year.

TORONTO -- Mike Mussina set a few milestones yesterday, just not the one he coveted most.The Orioles, whose last 20-game winner was Mike Boddicker in 1984, carried a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning yesterday, and Mussina was on the verge of winning 20 for the first time in his career. But Armando Benitez allowed a game-tying home run in the ninth to leave Mussina with a no-decision.Earlier in the game, Mussina set an Orioles record for strikeouts in a season with 204, breaking Dave McNally's mark of 202 set in 1968.

SEATTLE -- Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis knew he had struck out quite a few times in recent games, he just didn't know how bad it had gotten. "How many do I have now, 30?" Markakis asked before last night's game. Markakis, who who hit the game-winning home run in the eighth inning last night, actually has 21 strikeouts, including seven in the past three games. During one stretch that ended Tuesday, Markakis struck out in five straight at-bats. He has also struck out in nine of the past ten games.

With an 18-2 win Sunday over the host Pennsylvania Roar, the Blast claimed the Major Indoor Soccer League regular-season championship. The win gave the Blast (17-3) the No. 1 seed in the MISL playoffs. The Milwaukee Wave (16-4) lost to the Missouri Comets, 9-4, on Sunday, allowing the Blast to take first place in the league. The Blast's game started slowly, as midfielder Max Ferdinand got the Blast on the board first off an assist from midfielder Drew Yates (Maryland). Ferdinand scored another goal before the end of the first quarter, giving the Blast an early 4-0 lead.

NEW YORK - After Adam Jones struck out in the seventh inning Friday night against New York Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova, Jones took another swing. This time, it was at his helmet in the tunnel leading out of the clubhouse. Jones, who entering Saturday had hit just .231 since June 1, made sure he was in an area clear of teammates - and, he thought, of cameras - when he flipped his helmet in the air, slammed it with his bat and then flung his bat at the helmet. YES Network cameras, however, captured the brief tirade.

Despite not allowing an earned run, Maryland split its two games Tuesday to start this year's Heartland Classic baseball tournament in Norman, Okla. Tayler Stiles (Bishop McNamara) set a tournament record for strikeouts in a seven-inning game with 16 as Maryland defeated Georgia, 3-0, to rebound from an earlier 3-2 loss to host Oklahoma. Stiles, who will play at Maryland next season, allowed two hits and walked two batters in the complete-game victory. The state's high school all-star team rallied to tie its first game Tuesday in the top of the seventh inning, but Oklahoma scored its third unearned run of the game in the bottom of the frame for a one-run victory.

In the sixth inning of the Orioles' 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter turned to bench coach John Russell in the visiting dugout of Fenway Park and made a prognostication in the middle of a tied game. Left-hander Brian Matusz had just overcome a 3-0 count to Jarrod Saltalamacchia to strike him out on a full-count pitch. Matusz came into the game with two on and one out in the sixth, relieving starter Chris Tillman after he threw 96 pitches.

Moments after striking out 10 in the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday, lefty Zach Britton was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. This makes room for left-hander Randy Wolf, who  will be activated tomorrow and added to the 25-man roster. With major league rosters expanding on Saturday and Norfolk's regular-season ending Monday, Britton could quickly return to the Orioles and take his regular turn in the rotation Tuesday. Wolf, released by the Milwaukee Brewers Aug. 22, was added to the 40-man roster, which didn't require a corresponding move.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS -- When he recorded his last strikeout on a night full of them, Erik Bedard pounded his glove with his fist and then hugged his catcher, Ramon Hernandez. It was a display of emotion the Orioles have rarely seen from the stoic Bedard, but it certainly was fitting for the occasion. In the Orioles' 3-0 victory over the Texas Rangers last night at Ameriquest Field, Bedard tied a franchise record with 15 strikeouts, including 10 of 12 batters at one point. He faced the minimum number of batters, as the Rangers had two hits and no walks and had both base runners erased on double plays.

The first few months of 1992 were very good for Orioles pitcher Bob Milacki. He won a $1.1 million salary from an arbitrator in February, and the second spot in the starting rotation in April.But as the year advanced, things soured for Milacki, and he was optioned to the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings yesterday. His spot on the roster will be filled by right-hander Richie Lewis, who was third in the International League in strikeouts.Milacki, 27, is the second Orioles starter to be moved from the roster in as many days.

Rookie left-hander Wei-Yin Chen  had just finished speaking with reporters following the Orioles' 4-0 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday night when MASN analyst Mike Bordick strolled by to congratulate the Taiwanese pitcher on a job well done. “Que paso,'” Chen responded - in Spanish - which turned everyone's head in the hallway toward a smiling Chen. Yes, the 27-year-old rookie has made a seamless adjustment to the big leagues. He gave one of his best outings of the season Saturday, throwing seven shutout innings and holding the Rays to five hits for his team-high 10th win of the season.

When Miguel Gonzalez suffered the worst outing of his brief major league career last Wednesday, he didn't offer any excuses, only the explanation that he didn't have a good feel for his pitches. He couldn't get a good grip on the ball. What he didn't say was that he was sick. That's why his clammy hands couldn't grip the baseball, which made him struggle with his change-up and slider. He lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed seven runs on seven hits. In retrospect, he said he wished he thrown more two-seam fastballs.
