Chris Tillman battled through the early innings of his outing Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays. In his mind, he wasn't carrying his best stuff, so he huddled with catcher Matt Wieters between innings to figure out how to maneuver through a dangerous Toronto lineup. The results were worthy of a win. Tillman held Toronto to two unearned runs and three hits over eight innings. But despite another spectacular start, Tillman was a tough-luck loser in the Orioles' 2-0 loss because of some rare fielding miscues behind him. An Orioles team that committed the fewest errors (54)

The heat was oppressive, the game progressed much too slowly and the starting pitcher left much too soon. If only the players union set yesterday morning as its strike date. Scott Erickson failed to clear the middle innings again, and the Orioles wasted three home runs in a 7-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers before 30,905 at sweltering Camden Yards, where a first-pitch temperature of 99 degrees was the only high point of the season. Two errors in the sixth inning enabled the last-place Tigers to break a 4-4 tie and defeat the Orioles for the fourth time in six tries.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said there is a simple key to competing with the slugging teams of the American League, clubs that seemingly can score at will: Play excellent defense. "That sucker [the ball] stays in the park, you better catch it," Showalter said. The Orioles have been catching "that sucker" better than any other team in the big leagues in 2013. They entered Wednesday's play with the majors' highest fielding percentage (.992). That season trend turned downward in the Orioles' 8-5 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday afternoon; it was just the fifth time they have made two errors in a game this season (they are 2-3 in those contests)

Mount Hebron pushed across an unearned run in the top of the ninth inning and squeezed out a 4-3 victory over Bel Air in a Class 3A state semifinal at Randazzo Park last night.Bel Air, top seeded for the four-team event, had rallied for three unearned runs in the fifth inning to tie the score.There was a mild threat by Mount Hebron when it had a runner on second with one out in the eighth, but otherwise the sixth, seventh and eighth innings were uneventful. The ninth made up for it.Two errors by the usually sure-handed Sherry Godbee at third base -- a throwing error and an error when the ball bounced off the heel of her glove -- were sandwiched around an out, with the second one allowing Kathy Kiersarsky to score the winning run.Bel Air had one last gasp.

FREDERICK -- There are a number of reasons the fourth-seeded Hammond baseball team dropped a heart-breaking 6-5 decision to top-seeded Rockville last night in the Class 2A state semifinals at McCurdy Field.Not the least of which was the Bears themselves.Rockville took advantage of six Hammond errors, scoring the winning run in the bottom of the seventh on an errant throw to third by catcher Robbie Laing, allowing Jeremy Kinsey, who had reached on an error to lead off the inning, to score.

Mark Reynolds is making the Orioles' pending decision this offseason on whether he'll play first or third base in 2012 an easy one. After excelling defensively the past couple of weeks as the regular first baseman, Reynolds returned to third Sunday and made two errors in the Orioles' 8-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Reynolds, making his first start at third since Aug. 14, booted Brandon Guyer 's two-out ground ball with the bases loaded in the Rays' four-run third inning.

In a season that has been marked by failure to hit in the clutch and protect leads, one aspect of the Orioles' struggles largely has been minimized, simply because it hasn't been as easy to quantify. Watch the Orioles long enough, however, and it's evident that an inability to make key defensive plays has been as crucial as any other ingredient in creating this mess at Camden Yards. Thursday's 8-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics in front of a disinterested crowd of an announced 15,712 served as the perfect example of the Orioles' season-long defensive ineptitude.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-- --Before catcher Matt Wieters scored the game-tying run in the ninth inning of the Orioles' eventual 11-10 victory over the Washington Nationals yesterday, it had not been a good day for players selected in the top 10 of last year's first-year player draft. Promising left-hander Ross Detwiler, whom the Nationals selected sixth, was hammered for two earned runs and three hits in one inning. Wieters, who went fifth overall, was 0-for-2 with a strikeout and couldn't handle Oscar Salazar's throw from right field in the top of the ninth, allowing Washington to tie the game.

For five months, people waited with anticipation to hear the opponents' case against a planned expansion of Turf Valley, but what they heard was a thud. The opponents have been forced to abandon -- at least temporarily -- the heart of their presentation because the strategy of trying to broaden radically the county's examination of the developer's plans has been dashed at every turn. While they will get another chance in two weeks, many believe that it will be hard to reverse their fortunes.

The Orioles can only hope Matt Riley caught a few highlights from last night's debacle at Camden Yards. They can only hope he takes a minute this morning, before suiting up for Triple-A Ottawa, and scans the box score from the 13-3 pounding the Orioles took against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before a surly crowd of 28,081. They can only hope Riley cares. Because, putting aside the team's offensive struggles for a moment, he had an indirect role in this ugly defeat. Team officials were so infuriated with his meltdown Friday in Philadelphia, they shipped him back to the minors.

With Laura Canton on the mound yesterday for C. Milton Wright, the Fallston softball team didn't have much margin for error. The Cougars didn't need any.

Milton Wright, 2-0, dealing the Mustangs their first loss. Fallston (9-1, 5-0) scored in the fourth and sixth innings to take sole possession of first place in the top division of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada was as responsible as anyone for yesterday's 10-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and he knew it. He made two errors. He went 0-for-4 at the plate and he stranded four runners. "It's a long season, and there are going to be days like that," said Tejada, who played in his 601st consecutive game, stretching the longest active streak in the majors. With a quick glance at the statistics, Tejada's first week as an Oriole appears fairly successful.
