HOME PLATE

Matt gets off the mat: Kind of figured that the Orioles would perk up as soon as Matt Wieters came back to life at the plate. Wieters suffered through a protracted hitting slump in May -- which took his batting average from .305 down to .224 -- but woke up with two hits June 1 and has eight hits in 19 at-bats (.421) this month. To his credit, the only noticeable burst of frustration over that period was the blowup at umpire Doug Eddings in Toronto that got him ejected for the first time in his career. And, even then, he was arguing in defense of his starting pitcher.
