  • Deck stacked against O's, but they draw right hand

    BOSTON - Thank goodness for B.J. Surhoff. Thank goodness for 40-year-old veterans who can still run down fly balls with their backs to the Green Monster, bailing out a starting pitcher who had the bases loaded in the seventh, no one out and not a creature stirring in the bullpen. Larry Bigbie on...

  • Deck stacked against O's, but they still end up flush

    BOSTON - Thank goodness for B.J. Surhoff.

  • Mentor Miller helps ease Cabrera's learning curve

    BOSTON - Four and a third innings of no-hit baseball and a 1-0 lead against the defending World Series champs - it was an auspicious enough start for Daniel Cabrera.

  • Tejada should be happiest to see Sosa back in lineup

    BEFORE WE talk about what Sammy Sosa has or has not done this season and before we talk about what he should do the rest of the way to help the Orioles stay on top of the American League East, let's talk about Miguel Tejada. It's Tejada's team. It's Tejada's show. It's Tejada whose engine drives...

  • Now, spotlight turns to O's, who look ready to enjoy it

    WITH THE Preakness over, the stage is all theirs now. The summer belongs to the Orioles. If they stumble anywhere along the way, hopefully they do so the way Preakness winner Afleet Alex stumbled: making a dramatic move to establish better position for a strong stretch run.
