Wrapping up a 1-0 13-inning loss and Matusz's ejection

MIAMI - The Orioles lost a game tonight in 13 innings. They tried their hardest not to collectively lose their cool after returning to the clubhouse. It's obvious that the team is incensed that Marlins manager Dan Jennings asked umpires to check reliever Brian Matusz's right arm with two outs in the bottom of the 12th inning of a scoreless game. Matusz was ejected for ... read more

Matusz ejected in 12th inning (O's lose 1-0 in 13th)

MIAMI - Orioles reliever Brian Matusz was ejected from tonight's game against the Marlins with two outs in the bottom of the 12th inning after umpires appeared to check his right arm. The assumption is Matusz was tossed for having an illegal substance on his arm. Matusz retired the first two Marlins after replacing Oliver Drake, who worked three scoreless innings in his major league ... read more

Paredes enjoying life atop AL batting leaders (Drake makes debut)

MIAMI - The scoreboard at Marlins Park listed the batting leaders in the American League this afternoon as players hit on the field. Jimmy Paredes' name appeared between Nelson Cruz and Miguel Cabrera. Impressive company, for sure. It's even more impressive when you consider that the list was outdated. Cruz dropped one point behind Paredes after going 1-for-4 earlier today. And Paredes upped his average ... read more

Showalter, Gausman and Drake before tonight's game

MIAMI - Orioles pitcher Bud Norris will continue his rehab assignment on Wednesday with a start at Double-A Bowie. The Baysox have a 6:35 p.m. game against Erie at Prince George's Stadium. Norris allowed nine runs and 12 hits in 2 2/3 innings yesterday at Triple-A Norfolk in Game 1 of a doubleheader against Rochester. He went on the disabled list retractive to May 11 ... read more

Orioles option Wilson

MIAMI - The Orioles have optioned pitcher Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk, as expected, to make room for reliever Oliver Drake on the 25-man roster. Drake has been recalled from Norfolk and will be in uniform tonight at Marlins Park. He's been assigned No. 71. Wilson, 25, made two appearances with the Orioles since being recalled on Monday. He made his debut two nights later ... read more

Orioles recalling Drake

MIAMI - The Orioles are making another roster move today to bolster their bullpen, recalling right-hander Oliver Drake from Triple-A Norfolk. Drake will be in Miami for tonight's game against the Marlins. Right-hander Tyler Wilson, who earned his first major league win last night, most likely is the corresponding move. Wilson has pitched twice in the past three games and he has options, unlike most ... read more

Tonight's game and possible roster move

MIAMI - Orioles manager Buck Showalter will celebrate his 59th birthday today by deciding whether Jimmy Paredes should remain in the lineup and how many right-handers to send out against Marlins starter Dan Haren. I'd prefer a bowling party. And cake. Haren is a right-hander with reverse splits in his career. Right-handers bat .267 against him and left-handers bat .240. However, left-handers are hitting .271 ... read more
