City missed its chance at a big inning, but Poly didn't. The Engineers scored five runs in the bottom of the third inning and went on to an 8-5 victory, clinching the Baltimore City A Conference baseball title yesterday afternoon. Poly was pumped up from the get-go with its boisterous cheering that spilled onto the field. "Fire is a key word for these boys, because they have a lot of heart for a young team," Poly coach Chris Vaccaro said. The host Engineers (14-2) picked two Knights off base in the third to dismiss what could have been a big inning for the visitors.

Normally, a blowout win against the New York Yankees is celebrated with abandon at Camden Yards. Add in that Monday's 11-3 victory separated the Orioles and the Yankees even further in the American League East race and that one of the offensive heroes was beleaguered slugger Chris Davis, and you'd have almost the perfect scenario for Orioles fans. Except that that feel-good vibe took a hard tumble in the third inning when 22-year-old third baseman Manny Machado collapsed in the batter's box after a swing and had to be helped off the field.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado took a big swing in the third inning of Monday night's series opener against the New York Yankees at Camden Yards and crumpled to the ground. Machado appeared to be in great pain as he held his right knee, and he had to be helped off the field by Orioles head athletic trainer Richie Bancells and manager Buck Showalter. The Orioles announced later in the game that Machado had suffered a right knee sprain and would be re-evaluated Tuesday. It was a scary moment that could have huge implications for Machado and the Orioles.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Whatever hope might have been generated by the just-completed 6-3 homestand perished Monday night inside Network Associates Coliseum. The Orioles suffered a flashback to April as they managed to turn leads of 8-1 and 12-7 into a 13-12, 10-inning loss to the Oakland Athletics. Any sense of deja vu was misplaced, however. The Orioles had never lost a game this way. Never. The game marked the first time since the franchise came to Baltimore in 1954 that the Orioles have lost when scoring 12 runs or more.

Milestone for Tejada Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada collected his 1,000th career RBI in the third inning when he singled with two outs to score Kevin Millar and produce a 3-3 tie. The milestone should have arrived in the first inning, but Seattle Mariners shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt put it on hold. Betancourt made a sprawling stop of Tejada's grounder up the middle, holding him to an infield hit and preventing Nick Markakis from scoring. High and low Third baseman Melvin Mora had plenty of time to make two plays in the third inning.

Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez had already caught one break in the third inning of Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics when a grand slam by John Jaso was overturned by review and ruled a two-run double. But Jimenez still couldn't manage to get out of his own way, his control failing as he suffered his shortest outing in 13 starts with the Orioles. Jimenez left the game with the Orioles trailing, 6-0, after Oakland first baseman Brandon Moss hit a monster grand slam to center field that didn't need a review.

Manny Machado wasn't happy with the way Oakland Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson tagged him to end the third inning in the Orioles' 4-3 loss Friday night. Why, exactly? He wouldn't specify. “He made the right play, but [I] just didn't agree on the tag that he made on me, and I just had to get up and confront him,” Machado said after the game. “You get in the heat of the moment and things start flying. It's part of the game, and you're going to have to continue.” With two outs and Machado running on contact from second base, Donaldson fielded a soft ground ball near third and waited in his base path.

Orioles prospect Eduardo Rodriguez started and finished well in his first appearance for the Surprise Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday. He struggled in the middle, however, giving up two runs and three hits in the second inning. The 20-year-old left-hander retired the side in order in the first and third, though, and the Saguaros came back for a 9-5 win over the Peoria Javelinas. Rodriguez, who split the 2013 season between Single-A Frederick and Double-A Bowie, struck out the Javelinas' Delino DeShields (Houston Astros)

For three of the four innings he pitched Friday, right-hander Steve Johnson showed why he remains in consideration to be the Orioles' fifth starter. The other inning, though, the 25-year-old St. Paul's alum would like to forget. In the Orioles' 6-3 road win against a Tampa Bay Rays split squad, Johnson retired the first eight batters he faced before temporarily losing control and walking the bases loaded in the third inning. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria followed with a sinking liner that left fielder Trayvon Robinson couldn't handle, resulting in a three-run double.

CLEVELAND - The Orioles have been victims of the big inning recently, when everything seemingly collapses around the starting pitcher. On Friday, the Orioles finally saw it from a different vantage point. They pounded the Cleveland Indians, 10-2, Friday night for their second most lopsided victory of the season. It included a six-run third against veteran right-hander Derek Lowe - the most runs the Orioles have scored since getting seven in an inning May 5 against Boston. “It's rare that we get four, five, six runs an inning.

The Orioles sent 10 batters to the plate in a seven-run third inning that has opened up Saturday afternoon's game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The Orioles lead the Red Sox 8-0 after an inning that was capped by third baseman Mark Reynolds' three-run homer over the Green Monster in left, his second in the last 24 hours after going homerless for 76 at bats. Center fielder Adam Jones also hit a two-run homer, a mammoth two-run blast that cleared the Green Monster and landed on Landsdowne Street.
