Sam Horn hit a triple yesterday.In case you don't grasp the significance of this epochal event -- and I'm guessing you don't -- allow me to offer some perspective.Beethoven wrote nine symphonies. Horn has hit one triple.Nolan Ryan has pitched seven no-hitters. Horn has hit one triple.There have been three "Godfather" movies, two world wars and one Sam Horn triple.Some will remember yesterday's game as the end of a nine-game Camden Yards winning streak.I'll remember it as the game in which Kevin Reimer couldn't hold Scramblin' Sammy's shot to left and Horn kept running and running and running and running and running and -- my God, where is third base?

Baltimore County officials are looking into how other local governments regulate private late-night businesses after police arrested a Prince George's County man accused of shooting three people outside a Catonsville swingers club this weekend. County Executive Kevin Kamenetz asked Police Chief Jim Johnson to research rules elsewhere following the Sunday incident at Tabu Social Club, located in a shopping center on North Rolling Road, county spokeswoman Ellen Kobler said Tuesday.

He did it!Don't care if Texas leftfielder Kevin Reimer would have held the ball diving onto any other warning track but the crash-and-burn drag-strip at Camden Yards. Don't care if our hero stumbled into third base like a marathoner collapsing at the finish line.Sam "Deion" Horn hit his first major-league triple yesterday -- off Nolan Ryan, no less. It goes without saying that the event rendered the Orioles' 5-3 loss to Texas inconsequential. The moment was so epic, Mark McLemore described it as "bigger than life."

If there was one moment this spring when former Oriole Pete dTC Incaviglia went from being a long shot to a lock in the Detroit Tigers' camp, it was when the nonroster invitee ripped a ball into the gap during an exhibition game and didn't stop running until he reached third base.Doubles and home runs had been Incaviglia's calling cards. A stand-up triple?The ball didn't get stuck in the fence, either. It was all Inky, 40 pounds lighter and unwilling to fade into oblivion."Actually, I had three of them.

The Orioles added to their expanded roster Tuesday by activating left-hander T.J. McFarland and catcher Steve Clevenger from short-season Single-A Aberdeen -- they were there since Sunday for roster management reasons -- and right-hander Ryan Webb and outfielder Quintin Berry from Triple-A Norfolk. Webb had been with the Orioles all season, but he was sent down to Norfolk on Aug. 1 because the club needed to make room for newly acquired left-hander Andrew Miller. Webb was solid for the Orioles -- 3-2, 3.80 ERA in 42 games before the demotion -- but he had a minor league option remaining, making him the temporary odd man out. “It was a surprise.

Manager Buck Showalter isn't waiting for rosters to expand Monday to give the Orioles the kind of position player depth that he thinks they will need for the stretch run. The Orioles selected the contract of utility player Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, giving the team a five-man bench for the series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards, and potentially, the weekend series with the Minnesota Twins. Showalter said Paredes likely would have been promoted when rosters expand next week, but the ability to send right-hander Kevin Gausman to the minor leagues after Wednesday's start without having him miss a turn in the rotation allowed Paredes to be brought up sooner.

Orioles pitching prospect Mike Wright was one strike away from throwing a no-hitter for Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday night in a 5-2 win over the Durham Bulls. Wright came as close as possible to tossing a no-hitter, allowing a two-out double to Mike Mahtook on a 1-2 count in the ninth inning. Earlier in the inning, shortstop Alexi Casilla committed a throwing error with two outs on a play that could have ended the game. After allowing the double to Mahtook - which also ended Wright's shutout bid - he was replaced by right-hander Brock Huntzinger.

As expected, the Orioles have placed third baseman Manny Machado on the 15-day disabled list with what the team has diagnosed as a right knee ligament sprain. The team also has purchased the contract of infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk to fill Machado's spot on the 25-man roster. Catcher Matt Wieters, out for the season after Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery, was transferred to the 60-day DL to make 40-man roster space for Phelps. The move to place Machado on the DL is retroactive to Tuesday, so he would be eligible to return Aug. 27. The club diagnosed Machado with a ligament sprain in his right knee, but the true severity is still unknown because the specific ligament and degree of the sprain has yet to be announced.

Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez took being optioned to Triple-A Norfolk this weekend in stride, saying that he knows someone had to be sent down with the Orioles' current roster crunch. “We're stacked,” Gonzalez said before Sunday's game. “We have a good ballclub, and you've got to take that and be like, 'Oh, well.' You can't do anything about it. Everyone's pitching well. There's got to be a guy who's got to go down.” Gonzalez was optioned before Saturday's win to make room on the 25-man roster for right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who was activated from the disabled list to start the game.

The Washington Nationals sought television rights fees nearly three times what the team receives now from the Baltimore Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, according to documents unsealed by a New York court last week. The documents were made available by the New York Supreme Court Commercial Division for New York County, which is hearing a dispute over the division of the rights fees the two teams receive from their shared TV network. Both clubs now receive about $40 million a year in return for granting MASN permission to televise their games, but the Nationals were seeking an increase to $118 million, citing recent deals for other teams, according to the documents.

TURIN, Italy -- The judges for the Winter Olympics women's figure skating competition got it right. What fun is that? Of course, there was hardly any way they could have gotten it wrong after yesterday's long program. Not even the French judge would have dared try to fix this one. Skaters have complained that the ice at the Palavela is soft, but that was a good thing in this case. Considering how many of them fell on it, someone could have been seriously injured. The winner: the only one standing.

Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who has been on the disabled list since July 13 with a right ankle sprain, will join the Orioles in Washington, D.C., on Monday for their makeup game against the Nationals and then fly with the team to Toronto on Tuesday. Showalter wouldn't specify what the plan is after that, but Jimenez is not scheduled to start against the Blue Jays. Jimenez, who is 3-8 with a 4.52 ERA in 18 starts for the Orioles, pitched in his second and final injury rehabilitation game Sunday night.
