Dan Connolly, reporter: Reliever Darren O'Day is one of the key members of this team, on and off the field. But he'll give up homers on occasion. Unfortunately, that occasion occurred Friday night in the 10th inning of an eventual 8-6 loss for the Orioles. O'Day has allowed three homers since mid-September, all in tied games in the ninth or 10th against a powerful left-hander. It happens. And Alex Gordon rakes in Baltimore. But this is one the Orioles could have and maybe should have won. And didn't. It'll sting, but, hey, they nearly came back again.
