The frustration carried Melvin Mora into left field yesterday. He probably wanted to be whisked completely out of Camden Yards. Still adapting to a full-time job at third base, Mora committed two more errors yesterday in the Orioles' 4-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Factor in the one he made during Sunday night's opener, on the first ball hit to him, and the season already is bullying him. Mora allowed a sharp grounder from Kevin Millar to skip under...

TORONTO - Much bigger goals lie ahead for the Orioles, and their final regular-season series here is less about winning games than about fine-tuning for the postseason. Still, the Orioles don't want to trudge to the postseason. Following their 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Saturday, the Orioles have lost three consecutive games for the first time since being swept at Wrigley Field five weeks ago, and for just the second time since the All-Star break. The loss also ensured that the Orioles will finish the regular season with just their third road series loss since the break.

MILWAUKEE -- Right-hander J.J. Bautista couldn't have picked a worse time to throw a high fastball to Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Robin Yount.The immediate result was a two-out home run in the 11th inning that sent the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-3 defeat yesterday at Milwaukee County Stadium. The long-term ramifications might be even more dismal, since pitchers Ben McDonald and Bob Milacki both appear ready to return to the major-league roster.Someone is going to have to step aside, and Bautista is beginning to look like the leading candidate.

BOSTON - Everything seemed to go the Orioles' way for 5 1/2 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But after an ESPN nationally broadcast returned from a commercial break for the bottom of the sixth, everything unraveled for the Orioles. They lost a five-run lead and Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy to injury. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez lost his groove with one pitch that was sent into the Boston night, and the sure-handed Orioles defense committed three errors in the final three innings to set the stage for a walk-off loss, 6-5, to the Red Sox. “That's part of baseball,” Jimenez said.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The ugliness was not confined to Jaret Wright's 2 1/3 innings, a brutal outing in which he recorded just two more outs than walks and put the Orioles into too big of a hole from which to recover. There was left fielder Jay Gibbons botching a foul pop-up that prolonged an inning. There was shortstop Miguel Tejada failing to field a ground ball that resulted in two runs. And there was a series of meek swings against Minnesota Twins starter Ramon Ortiz, a pitcher who lost 16 games last season and had never won a game in five previous starts at the Metrodome.

A steady downpour that threatened to wash away another game at Camden Yards came to an abrupt end yesterday, causing only an 11-minute delay at the start. The sky cleared except for one black cloud that hung heaviest over the Orioles. It couldn't have been much thicker in the first inning, when they committed three errors that led to six unearned runs off Jason Johnson. Or in the eighth, when reliever Alan Mills served up back-to-back homers that later grew in importance. It stayed with David Segui like a shadow, taking to the dark side a player who's crafted a reputation for defensive excellence.

Centennial took advantage of seven Glenelg errors, had four extra-base hits, and got a combined four-hitter from Tom Phelan and Brad Loveless to hand the Gladiators their first loss of the season, 12-8, in a Howard County league game at Centennial yesterday. Glenelg (4-1 overall and league) committed three errors in both the second and third innings, and Centennial responded with four and three runs, respectively, for a 7-2 lead. "Too many errors," said Glenelg coach Tom Thrasher. "But I'm proud of the way they came back."

Football coaches are fond of saying that it takes all three phases of a team - offense, defense and special teams - to be successful. The offense and defense did their part in No. 7 seed Towson's convincing 48-28 victory over visiting Fordham on Saturday in a NCAA Division I Football Championship second-round game, but the same could not be said of the special teams. That unit committed back-to-back-to-back gaffes in the second quarter, and two were costly: The Rams (12-2) turned them into touchdowns to roar back from a 21-7 deficit.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Brian Matusz's nightmarish stretch seemingly won't end as his personal losing streak tumbles on. The 25-year-old left-hander was touched up again in the Orioles' 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night and has now dropped 12 consecutive decisions – the longest active streak in the major leagues and second longest in the history of the franchise. "I thought he was better. A little better each time he has pitched since the first one," manager Buck Showalter said.

The Orioles were desperate for a combination of good pitching and timely hitting Sunday in an attempt to avoid a sweep at the hands of baseball's hottest team, the Washington Nationals. To an extent, they achieved it in a 7-4 victory, but it certainly didn't hurt that the Nationals, owners of an eight-game winning streak, seemingly took Father's Day off. In front of a bipartisan crowd of an announced 35,439 in the nation's capital, the Orioles (32-37) seized on three Nationals errors -- leading to two runs -- and a starting pitcher who hadn't been on a big league mound in three weeks.

Cooperstown, N.Y., sits tranquilly abreast of Lake Otsego in a place where time seems to have stopped, and a past America has been painstakingly preserved. It is small town U.S.A. before highways bypassed Main Street, chain restaurants diluted local flavor, and big-box stores full of foreign-made products choked out the mom-and-pop familiarity of the neighborhood store. It is a most fitting, bucolic locale for the National Baseball Hall of Fame - the place where the immortals of America's game are forever honored with enshrinement.

BOSTON - Tony La Russa has witnessed plenty in all his years in baseball, but until Game 1 of this World Series, he had never had another team's groundskeeper apologize to him about a bad hop. La Russa said that happened Saturday, after St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Tony Womack took a nasty hop off his left collarbone in the seventh inning at Fenway Park. Womack had to leave the game, but X-rays showed no broken bones, and he was back in the lineup last night. Nonetheless, Boston Red Sox groundskeeper Dave Mellor apologized to La Russa, who said, "I had never had that happen."

Defending Class 4A state champion North County has it down pat: Get some runs early and everything else will fall into place. In last night's state semifinal against Watkins Mill of Montgomery County, a comforting two runs came across in the first inning, and then the No. 1 Knights left the rest to sophomore pitcher Beth Mullins. The result was a solid 5-0 win that has North County looking for its third state title in four years. The Knights (21-2) will meet Bowie -- a 4-2 winner over Perry Hall in last night's other semifinal -- at 6 p.m. tomorrow at Randazzo Park in Severn.
