Bud Norris silenced the Detroit Tigers hitters early in his outing Saturday night by pitching inside effectively, but when his 113th and final pitch sailed inside and hit right fielder Torii Hunter, it wasn't received well. Tempers flared and both teams' benches and bullpens emptied as Norris and Hunter jawed at each other, an outburst that provided more fireworks than the Orioles' offense in a 4-1 loss to the Tigers in front of an announced 24,517 at Camden Yards. Norris had just allowed a two-run homer to Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler with two outs in the eighth inning, a dagger that spoiled an otherwise strong night for the Orioles right-hander.

When the Detroit Tigers last came to Baltimore in May, right fielder Torii Hunter left firmly ensconced as the chief villain in road grays. Miguel Cabrera, the two-time reigning American League MVP, took up that mantel during the ALDS. Cabrera, the reigning two-time American League Most Valuable Player, had a hand in nearly every play - good and bad - on either team's ledger Friday, as his Tigers fell 7-6 with another eighth-inning bullpen implosion. The 2012 Triple Crown winner, who homered in the eighth inning of Game 1 and took his time rounding the bases, opened the Tigers' attack with a two-out single in the first inning Friday.

In the eighth inning, Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler hit a two-run homer off Orioles right-hander Bud Norris. Kinsler admired his shot for a moment - it got out in a hurry - and ran around the bases. It wasn't the fastest run, but it certainly wasn't the slowest. One web site had it clocked at 24 seconds. Two pitches later, 38-year-old outfielder Torii Hunter took a 94-mph fastball in the ribs from Norris. Hunter and Norris yelled at each other, benches and bullpens cleared and home plate umpire James Hoye ejected Norris.

Ian Kinsler broke up a tight 2-1 game in the eighth inning with a two-run homer to left field. Kinsler took his time admiring the homer and then rounded the bases in 24 seconds, not a stroll but not a sprint either. We'll never know for sure, but you have to think Orioles pitcher Bud Norris, who had pitched a gem up to that point, didn't like Kinsler's home run trot. It could be a coincidence, but two pitches later, Norris hit Torii Hunter with a 94-mph fastball. "I don't know.

Major League Baseball will announce All Star rosters Saturday, starting at 6:30 p.m. on Fox. The Orioles have three virtual locks to start with outfielder Adam Jones, first baseman Chris Davis and shortstop J.J. Hardy. But right fielder Nick Markakis is in a battle with Toronto's Jose Bautista and Detroit's Torii Hunter for the third and final starting spot in the outfield. According to the most recent tallies, Bautista is third in the outfield with 2,679,230 votes, Markakis was fourth with 2,536,864 and Hunter had 2,390,336.

A five-run offensive explosion in the ninth inning Saturday that made a nail-biter out of a blowout didn't mask the most pertinent question surrounding the 2014 Orioles: Will the starting pitching do enough to keep them in contention throughout the summer months? Five games in - through one turn of the rotation - the answer isn't promising. “We are better than we've shown. We know what kind of five-man staff we have and we are going to build off each other and go,” said Orioles right-hander Bud Norris.

When Jake Arrieta cruised into the fifth inning Saturday night after retiring a dozen consecutive Los Angeles Angels, the Orioles right-hander looked as if he would pick up his third quality start in four outings this young season. By the time his head stopped spinning in the fifth at Angel Stadium, however, Arrieta was in the Orioles dugout smarting from his shortest stint since July. The Angels collected five singles, three walks and five runs in the fifth to chase Arrieta on their way to a 6-3 win and a series victory against the Orioles (8-7)

The Orioles have asked Gold Glove center fielder Adam Jones to consider playing a little deeper this season to cut down on the number of extra-base hits landing over his head. "When a balls fall in, he feels bad about it," said Orioles first base and outfield coach John Shelby . "He feels like he should catch everything. We're going to work on going back, playing a little bit deeper. He's very confident going back and coming in." In 2009, Jones became the first Orioles outfielder since Paul Blair in 1975 to win a Gold Glove, yet he was scrutinized for much of the season for how shallow he plays.
