Lough: "I felt like I was at a low point in my career..."

David Lough started in center field last night and could be back on the bench tonight. He isn't used to extended stays in the lineup. Lough hasn't started back-to-back games since June 9-10. Adam Jones will return to center field tonight, so Lough's only shot is if Alejandro De Aza is rested. De Aza has become the regular left fielder since joining the Orioles following ... read more

If you had Sept. 19 as the date when Delmon Young would hit his first triple as an Oriole, go to the window and collect your money.

Confirmation may come before the Orioles fly to Toronto for the final ... read more
