Nick Markakis scored the go-ahead run on an error in the 10th inning as the visiting Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers, 6-3, last night, in their first meeting since the Rangers scored an AL record 39 runs in a doubleheader sweep last month. Melvin Mora added an RBI single and Brian Roberts hit a three-run homer off Wes Littleton, but the Orioles had to hang on as Fernando Carbrera gave up two runs in the 10th. Jamie Walker (2-2), the fifth of six Baltimore pitchers, struck out three in 1 2-3 innings.

Against the Blue Jays this season, the only thing that has stopped the Yankees was a day full of rain. And that's what happened Sunday in the Bronx. "It's going to rain until probably 9 o'clock," Yankees manager Joe Girardi observed, perhaps wistfully. The Yankees would have been trying to make it seven in a row against the Blue Jays, but rain began to fall in the late morning with no signs of letting up, and the game was postponed before it started. Since last season, New York has won its last nine home games against Toronto, as well as the last six overall vs. its AL East rival.

Orioles 4, Royals 3 BALTIMORE - Nick Markakis singled in the winning run in the 10th inning as Baltimore edged Kansas City. Luke Scott hit two solo homers and Corey Patterson also connected for the Orioles, who snapped a three-game losing streak. The Orioles previously had lost five games when leading after seven innings and four more when ahead after eight, including a disaster against Cleveland on Saturday in which the Indians scored eight runs in the ninth to erase a 2-0 deficit.

Investigators into steroid use in baseball are seeking medical records from at least two of baseball's premier sluggers over the past dozen years, Sammy Sosa and Rafael Palmeiro, along with dozens of other players suspected of using performance-enhancing drugs, a baseball official with direct knowledge of the request told the New York Times. The investigators in the inquiry headed by former Sen. George J. Mitchell also have asked the Baltimore Orioles to send medical files relating to Jason Grimsley, David Segui and Fernando Tatis to those players, the official said.

The Boston Red Sox dressed their rookies in thrift-shop castoffs and kid-flick clothing yesterday, as is the tradition for their last road trip of the season. Once they get to Tampa, it's time to get serious. Jon Lester held visiting Toronto to four hits over eight innings to outpitch Roy Halladay as Boston won, 4-3, to take three of four from the third-place Blue Jays. The Red Sox quickly turned their attention to the team on top of the AL East, heading south for three against the first-place Tampa Bay Rays in a building where Boston is 0-6 this season.

The Orioles improved to 2-0 with their second straight win over the Yankees. Uehara, the first Japanese-born pitcher in Orioles history, gave up five hits and a walk before leaving with a 7-1 lead. Signed to a 2-year, $10 million contract in January, Uehara (1-0)

How 'bout those O's? The Orioles raised eyebrows in the first week of the 2009 campaign by taking two of three games from the mighty Yankees, the preseason favorite in the AL East. Yes, it's early. But it's still a notable achievement for a club that lost 92, 93, and 93 games the last three years, extending its streak of losing seasons to 11. Are the Orioles the next version, possibly in 2010 or beyond, of the Tampa Bay Rays, which last season surprisingly beat out the Yankees and Red Sox en route to a World Series trip?

Alex Rodriguez hit a colossal home run, Curtis Granderson also connected and the New York Yankees got back on track with an 11-7 victory over the visiting Cleveland Indians last night in a game that quickly grew testy. Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Cleveland counterpart Manny Acta got into a face-to-face screaming match when both benches and bullpens emptied after Mark Teixeira was hit by a second-inning fastball from struggling Indians starter Fausto Carmona. No punches were thrown and there appeared to be little pushing and shoving - if any. Plate umpire Dale Scott issued warnings to both teams, and there was no further trouble.

Five days earlier, the New York Yankees used a dazzling offensive showing against Garrett Olson to begin their longest winning streak of the season. Olson and the Baltimore Orioles got their revenge in the rematch. Olson pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 with a go-ahead home run against favorite target Darrell Rasner, and Baltimore ended the visiting Yankees' five-game run with a 6-1 victory yesterday. Aubrey Huff also homered for the Orioles, who snapped a five-game skid that began with an 8-0 loss at Yankee Stadium in which Olson yielded six runs before being yanked in the third inning.

The Baltimore Orioles were 0-34 when trailing after eight innings, and they were down a run in the bottom of the ninth when New York Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez entered the game. K-Rod's 0.56 ERA was exquisite enough, but the righthander also had 16 saves in 17 chances - the exception coming by virtue of a dropped popup. Twenty pitches later, the Orioles celebrated perhaps their most uplifting performance of the season. Aubrey Huff drove in the winning run with a ninth-inning single, capping a two-run rally that carried Baltimore to a 5-4 victory last night.

ATLANTA - Mark Reynolds was upset rookie pitcher Zach Britton made hitting a homer look so easy. Reynolds shouldn't be upset. His homer was longer and meant more. Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Atlanta Braves, 5-4, Sunday to end their five-game losing streak. Britton gave up three runs in five-plus innings and had two hits, including his first career homer. "It kind of ticks you off as a position player to watch a pitcher get hits like it's nothing," said Reynolds of Britton, who is hitting .625 with five hits in eight at-bats in interleague play.

The Baltimore Orioles are back at .500, thanks to a seeing-eye single from a guy better known for his power. Vladimir Guerrero's hit drove in Robert Andino in the 12th inning, allowing the Orioles to beat the visiting Kansas City Royals, 6-5, yesterday for their season-high fifth straight victory. Nolan Reimold had four hits, including two homers, and four RBI for the Orioles, who squandered a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the 11th before coming through an inning later.

BALTIMORE - The 15th day of September will always have special meaning for Kyle Drabek. A year ago Wednesday, Drabek was standing near home plate at Citizens Bank Park accepting the Paul Owens Award as the top pitching prospect in the Phillies' minor-league system. Fast forward to last night, and there stood the 22-year-old Drabek on the mound at Camden Yards making his big-league debut. "The only thing I told him was don't change anything and that it's still the same game," said Doug Drabek, Kyle's father and the 1990 National League Cy Young Award winner with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Rookie David Hernandez' career as a starter is off to an impressive beginning. John Smoltz' could be nearing an end if he doesn't improve. Hernandez, 24, outpitched the 21-year veteran, and Baltimore broke an 11-game losing streak at Fenway Park with yesterday's 6-2 win over host Boston. Hernandez allowed one run and five hits with two strikeouts and no walks in seven innings. In his previous start, he gave up one run and three hits in six innings and retired 16 of his last 17 batters in a 2-1 loss to the New York Yankees.

Nick Markakis hit a two-run double off Boston closer Jonathan Papelbon to complete the biggest comeback in Orioles history, an 11-10 win last night in Baltimore in front of a mixture of delirious hometown fans and stunned Red Sox backers. Baltimore trailed, 10-1, before scoring five runs in the seventh inning and five more in the eighth. Boston had defeated the Orioles eight straight times, including five this season. Previously, the biggest comeback in Orioles history was Sept.
