In Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox, Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez regained his confidence, lifted his struggling club, picked up his first win since July and sent the club's fans home in time to watch some of the Ravens' opener in Denver. Not bad for a guy who turned in his worst start of the season just a few days ago. “It was fun to be out there and be able to go a little bit deeper than in other games and getting that win. That was important for us,” said Gonzalez (9-7)

Miguel Gonzalez was so good down the stretch last season - remember he was 6-1 with a 2.49 ERA in 10 starts after Aug. 1 in 2012. Things hadn't been so good for him since he last won on July 20. In those six starts, he was 0-4 with a 6.97 ERA. That's why Thursday night's performance in a 3-1 win was so big for Gonzalez . He allowed just one run in seven innings. He struck out six. He cruised through a spotty, but potentially dangerous Chicago White Sox lineup. Most important, he looked like the Gonzalez we remember from last September.

It was a fairly intimate crowd that showed up at Camden Yards on Thursday night for the Orioles' series opener against the Chicago White Sox, which should have come as a surprise to no one who has any interest in either of Baltimore's two major professional sports teams. The hardcore Orioles fans showed up to watch a game that could have playoff implications and many others came for the free plaid cap giveaway with the intention of staying until it was time to head home or to a local watering hole to watch the telecast of the Ravens' opener against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field.

CHICAGO - Here at U.S. Cellular Field - where fireworks are launched past center field after every home run the White Sox hit - the Fourth of July celebration on Chicago's South Side occurred at the most inopportune time for the Orioles on Thursday afternoon. After battling back from a two-run eighth-inning deficit to tie the game, the Orioles lost to Chicago, 3-2, in walk-off fashion on Adam Dunn's solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning prompting a celebration at home plate in front of an announced 21,321 at U.S. Cellular Field.

CHICAGO - Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he was tempted to give second baseman Brian Roberts a day off defensively and bat him at designated hitter in Thursday's day-after-night game against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. But instead, Showalter kept Roberts at second base and gave him his first career start in the No. 6 spot in the lineup. He previously had two career at-bats in the sixth spot, most recently in 2003. Roberts moved up in the order because Showalter gave starting catcher Matt Wieters a day off. And while Showalter still likes the spark Roberts, who returned from the disabled list Sunday, adds from the No. 9 spot after the veteran spent most of his career as a leadoff man, the Orioles manager is open to moving him around.

CHICAGO - Jason Hammel isn't going to apologize for pitching aggressively. That's what's made him a pitcher the Orioles have learned to count on to give them a chance to win every time out. Make no mistake, the fact that Hammel - who allowed two home runs in the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field - has allowed 10 homers in his past six starts troubles the veteran right-hander. But looking back on his outing Tuesday, it was what happened before Adam Dunn's two-run seventh inning homer that had Hammel most frustrated.

The Orioles may be able to keep Rick Peterson after all. The Boston Red Sox have chosen Juan Nieves, who had been the White Sox's bullpen coach, to be their new pitching coach. Peterson, the Orioles' organization's director of pitching development, interviewed Saturday for the Boston position and had been reported to be the favorite. Peterson and new Red Sox manager John Farrell have had a relationship for more than two decades. The Orioles would like to retain Peterson, who was named the Cal Ripken Sr. Development Award winner this year for his work with minor league and rehabbing pitchers.

Orioles fans, your time has finally come. Who's had it tougher than you the past 14 years? The Backstreet Boys? You watched so much bad baseball you almost forgot what good baseball looked like. Season after season, it felt as if the Orioles were out of the race by Arbor Day. You watched the parade of mediocre players, over-matched managers and timid front office types come and go, took all that abuse from your out-of-town friends, and wondered if it would ever get better. And now it has. Oh, man, has it gotten better.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday he believed his team's toughest game of their six-game road trip would be Monday's series opener in Toronto. Monday's 1 p.m. game will be the team's third straight afternoon game - a rarity. And it's also unheard of  that you come into a new city and play the first game of the series during the day. Sometime uncommon can lead to uncomfortable. But truly the test is replacing the atmosphere and excitement of this weekend's three games at Yankee Stadium with the antisceptic north-of-the-border feel of the Rogers Center.

Miguel Gonzalez spent two full years out of the game, one with a torn miniscus in his knee and the other recovering from Tommy John surgery. When the Orioles signed him to a minor-league deal in late February, the Angels and Red Sox had already given up on him. And on Friday night - in the middle of a pennant race - the 28-year-old right-hander put the Baltimore Orioles within two games of the AL East lead with seven shutout innings against the...
