The usual axioms did not apply. The Orioles were not in a position to be choosy about the way in which they scored a 4-3 victory over the California Angels yesterday at Camden Yards. But manager Johnny Oates wasn't in a take-'em-anyway-you-can-get-'em frame of mind.Nothing had changed. The club missed several opportunities and at least a couple of signs. There was another potentially disastrous base-running mistake. There were too many similarities to the ugly loss of the day before."I'm not going to go in there and tell them they played a great game," Oates said.

NEW YORK -- Over the past two decades, there probably has been no player who has caused the Orioles more heartbreak than Derek Jeter. And in his final game at Yankee Stadium, he found a way to beat them one last time. This wasn't the infamous "Jeffrey Maier home run" in the 1996 American League Championship Series or those 14 straight losing seasons in which Jeter and the New York Yankees used the Orioles as a division punching bag. Times have changed. When the teams took the field for Jeter's final game wearing pinstripes at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night, it was the newly-crowned AL East champion Orioles -- not the Yankees -- who were playing with something at stake.

BOSTON - Everything seemed to go the Orioles' way for 5 1/2 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But after an ESPN nationally broadcast returned from a commercial break for the bottom of the sixth, everything unraveled for the Orioles. They lost a five-run lead and Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy to injury. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez lost his groove with one pitch that was sent into the Boston night, and the sure-handed Orioles defense committed three errors in the final three innings to set the stage for a walk-off loss, 6-5, to the Red Sox. “That's part of baseball,” Jimenez said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - When the Orioles scraped across a run in the eighth inning to take a two-run lead on the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night, it seemed like it would be enough to ensure a win, especially given the way left-hander Wei-Yin Chen was pitching.   They were just five outs away from gaining a game on the Boston Red Sox and pulling within 2 ½ games of the American League East lead, but the Orioles saw their lead quickly disappear into the Kansas City night. And not much later, they watched the Royals storm out of the dugout at Kauffman Stadium to celebrate a 4-3 walk-off win in front of an announced crowd of 17,410.

NEW YORK -- Chris Davis is becoming the popular pick to win tonight's Home Run Derby, but the Orioles' first baseman says that doesn't add any pressure. "I dont think there is any pressure on me to win," he said Monday afternoon. "Like everybody else, I just want to put on a good show. And I want the fans to have a really good time and enjoy it. We played here [at Citi Field] last year, and I dont really remember it very much. It was just a three-game series. But like Robinson [Cano]

John Kruk, who will be part of ESPN's broadcast of the Home Run Derby, says Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is the favorite “without question” to win the event at Citi Field on Monday night. “When you watch his home runs, he doesn't swing hard,” Kruk, a former big league first baseman said during a conference call Wednesday. “As the later rounds come on if he keeps advancing, to me, he's going to be fresher than anyone else in this thing. To me, he's the leader in the clubhouse right now to win it, even though Prince did win it last year.” Fellow ESPN analyst Nomar Garciaparra said he expects the competition to come down to Davis and Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder.

Prior to losing a fumble on the Ravens' first possession of Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard round, Ray Rice had gone 445 consecutive touches without losing the football. The three-time Pro Bowl running back hadn't lost a fumble since Dec. 11, 2011. So coughing up the ball twice Sunday was somewhat surprising. Rice owned up to the gaffes, but when pressed on whether he was trying to make a little more out of the play, he got a little defensive.

The dog days of August don't usually include three-hour, nine-minute rain delays, but a little more than 12 hours after their game against the Kansas City Royals ended early Sunday morning with a loss, the Orioles were back on the field at Camden Yards trying to salvage a series split. The Orioles' series finale against the Royals was the club's 30th game in 31 days since the All-Star break. Grinding through the yawns and tired eyes of Sunday would reward the Orioles with a much-welcomed off day Monday.

For much of the past decade, the season finale at Camden Yards has been a simple affair, several thousand fans politely ushering in autumn with another lost season completed. On Wednesday, in the Orioles' 4-3, come-from-behind, no-way-that-happened win over the Boston Red Sox, the vibe at Camden Yards was different -- tense moments, jump-to-your-feet excitement, a pennant-race atmosphere for a cellar-dwelling club that began the night 29 games out of first place. The Orioles' season ended with walk-off single by Robert Andino against Boston Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, who struck out his first two batters before giving up the 3-2 lead on consecutive doubles by Chris Davis and Nolan Reimold.

Johnson's eight innings were a season high, and he tied his season-high with seven strikeouts. "I was able to throw all my pitches for strikes; I was consistent with my fastball and I was able to put it where I wanted it," he said.
