Brian Roberts has flied out deep to right with two men on in the last of the sixth. He drove the right fielder to the warning track for the catch.
So Roberts is 2 for 4 now in this game with two runs scored, a double and an RBI single.
Roberts has had a quiet night in the field, although he finally had a ball hit his way to end the top of the sixth. It was a routine grounder hit pretty slowly and he had an easy play and flip throw to end the inning. In the third, Roberts was the middle man...
Brian Roberts grounded out, first baseman to pitcher covering, to lead off the last of the fourth.
So he is 2 for 3 tonight with two runs scored and an RBI. He is now 10 for 18 (.556) on his injury-rehab assignment.
Roberts has not had any balls hit to him yet at second base. He handled the back end of a 6-4 fielders choice in the second and was in the middle of a 6-4-3 double play in the third that began with a nice stop of a hard one hopper by Baysox shortstop Greg Miclat.
Brian Roberts came up in the last of the second with two on and two out after walks to Brandon Waring and Greg Miclat.
The pitcher, before throwing a single pitch to Roberts, twice made pickoff throws to first base. On the second one, he threw wildly past first, scoring Waring and sending Miclat to third, so Roberts then batted with a man on third.
On an 0-1 pitch, Roberts hit an RBI ground ball single to center for a 3-1 Bowie lead.
Roberts is now 2 for 2 with an RBI.
After Roberts' RBI...
After going 8 for 15 in five games with the Gulf Coast League Orioles, Brian Roberts led off the last of the first here tonight at Bowie and Roberts hit a ground ball double down the third-base line on a 1-0 pitch from right-hander Chris Schwinden.
He slid safely into second ahead of the throw from the left fielder.
That was Roberts first at bat with the Bowie Baysox since he played here on May 17 and 18 of 2006, then also on an injury-rehab assignment.
The Binghamton Mets took a 1-0 lead in...
Brian Roberts play with the Bowie Baysox will be delayed a bit. A brief, but intense shower passed through Prince George's Stadium and the tarp was on the field for a while.
As we approach, 7:10, the tarp is off the field and I'm told the game should start here around 7:30.
Here is tonight's Baysox lineup:
2B - Brian Roberts
3B - Ryan Adams
LF - Tyler Henson
RF - Joel Guzman
1B - Joe Mahoney
DH - Brandon Waring
C - Caleb Joseph
CF - Danny Figueroa
SS - Greg Miclat
Eddie Gamboa will come...
Here is more from today's lengthy pre-game interview with Brian Roberts and reporters here in Bowie at Prince George's Stadium.
Roberts continues his injury-rehab assignment tonight here playing for the Double-A Bowie Baysox.
Is there something that will serve as the final test to show you are ready to return to the O's?
"I haven't slid yet. Well, I've slid feet first. I haven't tried to steal a base. I haven't had to make a diving play in the field or anything. I'm looking forward...
Brian Roberts will play second base and bat leadoff tonight for the Bowie Baysox, as his injury rehab assignment continues in the Eastern League and he looks to soon re-join the Orioles.
Roberts will play nine innings here tonight, DH tomorrow, then play second base and all nine innings again on Wednesday. He could stay with the Baysox longer, but his schedule is not certain beyond that game just yet.
Roberts does say he feels as good physically now as he has at any point this...
The Orioles activated Luke Scott from the disabled list today and he's expected to be in the starting line up.
As expected, the Orioles optioned reliever Frank Mata to Triple-A Norfolk. They're back to a four-man bench, but Corey Patterson may not be available tonight.
Tuesday, July 20 isn't just Jason Berken T-Shirt Tuesday at Camden Yards - and I'm not just talking about the fact that it's also Ollie's Bargain Night.
Before O's fans get to the ballpark to collect their T-shirt giveaway Tuesday night, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama will visit the Yard to announce a new joint initiative between Major League Baseball, the MLB Player's Association, and the White House.
Following the announcement, Orioles and Rays players will conduct...
Brian Roberts will play at Bowie tonight for the first time since he played two games there on an injury-rehab assignment in 2006.
I will be there to cover his play and get some pre and post-game quotes.
Roberts was officially added to the Bowie roster today and is expected to play the whole game tonight. He is also expected to meet with reporters before and after the game, so there should be no shortage of B-Rob info coming your way later.
Roberts played five games in the Gulf Coast...
Welcome back for another week of 'Where in the Yard?' here in the Orioles Buzz. With the O's home all week against Tampa Bay and Minnesota, you'll even have the chance to make your way to the Yard to spot this week's image!
Though many of you know the drill, if you're joining us for the first time, the 'Where in the Yard?' photo contest goes something like this:
Take a look a the photo below and let us know what the item is and where it's located in or around Oriole Park at Camden...
O's right-hander Chris Tillman will take the mound at Camden Yards tonight vs. Tampa.
We'll see if he can follow up on his excellent outing before the break at Texas where he beat the Rangers and out-dueled Cliff Lee. He took a no-hitter in the seventh and gave up just two hits and a run over 7 1/3.
It was his first start after going back to Triple-A for three starts.
O's pitching coach Rick Kranitz said this time Tillman returned a more confident pitcher and one that can now rely on...
The Orioles are still looking for their first win of the year vs. the Toronto Blue Jays.

Josh Bell is excited today. Not only is he making his fifth Major League start for the Orioles, but someone special gets to watch him play in person.
"I get excited every time you get to play. My mom will be here today. She's been waiting to see me play in the big leagues since 2005 when I signed."
Bell's mom made the trip to Camden Yards from her home in Florida. She got to see him play in person several times when he was in the minors.
"She was a bit of a roadie, usually got to...
The Toronto Blue Jays did two things Saturday night that they have been doing a lot this season.
They hit two more home runs and once again, they beat the Orioles, as their pitching staff, as usual this season, held the O's hitters in check.
Toronto is now 8-0 vs. the Orioles on the year after their 3-2 win in front of 28,518 at the Yard.

Surely, I will jinx them by writing this once again, but the Delmarva Shorebirds are getting good starting pitching again tonight, so far.
Righty Bobby Bundy has put up four scoreless this evening vs. West Virginia. Delmarva starting pitchers have now allowed just 3 ER over 63 2/3 innings over the last 11 games. In his last start, Bundy gave up just two hits and two runs that were unearned over six frames.
Meanwhile, Zach Britton is making his third Triple-A start for Norfolk tonight. He...
O's president Andy MacPhail had his latest "state of the Orioles" address for the club's season ticket holders at the ballpark on Saturday afternoon.
Here is an excerpt of some of the questions he got, topics that were addressed and his answers.
MacPhail was asked about the plan to rebuild with youth. Is he staying the course with that or does he now have to go in a different direction?
"I think you have tried the band aid approach here. I just don't see anyway in the American League...
Kevin Millwood has been on the disabled list since July 6th with a right forearm strain. He has not pitched since lasting just one inning July 5 at Detroit.
But he says he is making progress and expects he could come off the DL when he is eligible to. He was encouraged by the bullpen session he had at Camden Yards on Friday.
"Everything is feeling a lot better. I threw on the side yesterday and everything went well and I'm feeling good today. Just trying to get ready to come off the...
