In an unusual early start time - due to the pending Grand Prix of Baltimore - the Orioles' first pitch is scheduled for 12:35 p.m. If you are coming here, I hope you left early. Like Tuesday or last weekend. The streets are already a mess (and the Russell Street ramp is closed, though it wasn't supposed to be). The lineups are out and Matt Wieters is getting a day off, just protocol for the starting catcher for a day game following a night game. Mark Reynolds is batting cleanup for the first time this season.

Moments after striking out 10 in the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday, lefty Zach Britton was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. This makes room for left-hander Randy Wolf, who  will be activated tomorrow and added to the 25-man roster. With major league rosters expanding on Saturday and Norfolk's regular-season ending Monday, Britton could quickly return to the Orioles and take his regular turn in the rotation Tuesday. Wolf, released by the Milwaukee Brewers Aug. 22, was added to the 40-man roster, which didn't require a corresponding move.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter often has the same reaction when he thinks a question is obvious, when he thinks something is astounding or when he is sidestepping a pointed inquiry - he tilts his head slightly, cocks an eyebrow and utters one word: “Really?” With their 5-3 victory over the tough Chicago White Sox on Thursday afternoon, these surprising, befuddling Orioles (72-58) have moved within three games of the American League East-leading New York Yankees, who were idle Thursday.

Orioles left-hander Joe Saunders acknowledged he carried some extra adrenaline into his first start with his new team Wednesday night. Saunders grew up in Northern Virginia cheering for the Orioles, and said he spent a handful of times every season at Camden Yards. But his debut as a member of the Orioles didn't lead to positive memories. The 31-year-old veteran, dealt to the Orioles on Sunday from the Arizona Diamondbacks,  allowed four runs in the first inning in a 8-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox. The Orioles missed an opportunity to gain ground in the American League East with the loss.

Orioles fans, pinch yourselves. It is just four days until the calendar turns to September and your team is just 3 1/2 games out of first place in the American League East, the O's smallest deficit in the division since June 24. If they remain steady this week against the Chicago White Sox, they can chip into that lead even more this weekend in the Bronx. Take a deep breath. As you wake up today, after the Orioles' 4-3 comeback win over the White Sox, they are tied for the two AL wild card spots with the Oakland Athletics.

The Orioles knew their four-game series against the Chicago White Sox would come down to pitching. The White Sox's vaunted staff is a major reason why they lead the American League Central, and none of their pitchers has been better than left-hander Chris Sale. The Orioles' advance scouting reports told manager Buck Showalter what he already knew: Sale might be pitching better than anyone else in the American League. To get to Sale, the O's knew they'd have to attack him - and his deceptive all-arms-and-legs delivery - early.

The Orioles open their four-game home series against the Chicago White Sox tonight at Camden Yards. The White Sox have won six straight and 21 of their last 31. Their 54-34 record since May 17 is the second-best record in that span in all of baseball, just behind Cincinnati's 58-35 mark. Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start for the Orioles tonight. Chen (12-7), who has won four of his last five starts, won his first major league game against the White Sox on April 17, allowing two runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings in a 3-2 win at U.S. Cellular Field.

July 21, 2000: Jamal Lewis, the fifth player picked in the NFL draft, agrees to a six-year contract with the Ravens worth in excess of $35 million. "It's important for us as a team, and Jamal as a player, to get started on the right foot," Ravens coach Brian Billick says. The running back from Tennessee will ramble for 1,364 yards in the regular season and 102 more in Baltimore's Super Bowl victory over the New York Giants.

Kevin Hickey, the quirky left-handed reliever who pitched parts of three seasons for the Orioles including the storybook 1989 "Why Not?" season, died Wednesday at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago . He was 56. A Chicago native who spent three of his six major league seasons with his hometown White Sox, Hickey had been a pregame instructor/batting practice pitcher with the that club since 2004. He was discovered unresponsive in his hotel room before Chicago's Opening Day game in Texas this April.
