The Baltimore Orioles, who entered the season with pennant aspirations but finished below .500, fired manager Phil Regan and announced the resignation of general manager Roland Hemond yesterday. The firing of Regan, who led the Orioles to a 71-73 record in his first year as a major-league manager, paves the way for the hiring of former Orioles player Davey Johnson. Johnson, who guided the Cincinnati Reds to the NL Central title this year, interviewed for the Baltimore opening last season.

The Baltimore Orioles have asked for permission to talk to Cincinnati Reds manager Davey Johnson about their manager's opening, the New York Daily News reported today. The Orioles fired Johnny Oates on Monday. The newspaper reported that it is expected Reds owner Marge Schott will grant permission to the Orioles since she never has been enamored with Johnson and is looking to cut the payroll. Johnson, whose Reds were 66-48 and first in the National League Central, has one year left on his contract worth $300,000 plus incentives.

Baltimore manager Phil Regan said Cal Ripken simply took charge of the game that snapped the Orioles' seven-game losing streak. Ripken broke out of a 2-for-24 slump with four hits and two RBI as the Orioles edged the visiting New York Yankees, 5-4, last night. Afterward, he disagreed with his manager's analysis. "If that was true, I'd want to do that every night," Ripken said. "The best you can do is try to play consistently. Tonight was one of those nights where things started to go well.

BRANDON SNYDER homered and had a career-high six RBI against his former team, and the visiting Texas Rangers beat Baltimore, 14-3, Monday night to end the Orioles' five-game winning streak. Snyder, the Orioles' top draft choice in 2005, hit a two-run single in the second inning, a three-run drive in the sixth and an RBI single during a seven-run ninth. He played in only 16 games with Baltimore before the Rangers got him for cash considerations in January. "I'm probably going to have to wake up tomorrow and read something to make sure it happened," Snyder said.

Albert Belle and the Orioles essentially reached an agreement last night on a contract that will bring the free-agent outfielder to Baltimore, the Associated Press reported. While there was no announcement by the Orioles, a source speaking on the condition he not be identified said Baltimore and Belle were "very, extremely close" to an agreement and he expected the deal to be announced in the next few days. The source said the money part of the contract had been agreed to, but the rest of the deal had not been finalized.

Chris Hoiles and Lenny Webster have given Baltimore manager Ray Miller a rather pleasant problem: Just which one of the two hot-hitting catchers should he use? Hoiles hit a pair of two-run homers and drove in six runs as the visiting Orioles routed the Detroit Tigers, 14-2. Baltimore is 16-3 since the All-Star break. Hoiles is batting .385 (25-for-65) with six homers and 19 RBI in his last 21 games, raising his season average from .197 to .264. Webster's been torrid, as well, hitting .442 with four homers and 16 RBI in the last 10 games he's batted.

Third baseman Chris Sabo, who became a free agent when the Cincinnati Reds made it clear they didn't want him back, agreed yesterday to a one-year, $2 million contract with Baltimore. Sabo, a three-time All-Star who made $3.1 million last season, also had been negotiating with the New York Mets. Under the Orioles deal, he can earn up to $400,000 in performance bonuses. "The Mets' deal was clearly superior," said Jim Bronner, Sabo's agent. "It could have been over $7 million for two years.

Their hands cupping candles, children and adults gathered Thursday night near a pitcher's mound on a baseball field in Franklin Township to pay tribute to the life of Matthew McCloskey. Family, friends, and community members held vigil on the field where Matthew, 10, played his last game, in June, with his team, the Orioles. They told of his infectious smile, caring nature, and adventurous personality. "We're just trying to heal," said Susan Cleary, 49, of Franklin Township. Matthew, a fifth grader at Caroline L. Reutter School, was killed Sunday night as he attempted to cross Delsea Drive (Route 47)

SAN DIEGO - A hint of nervousness creeps into Ryne Sandberg's voice whenever he talks about his team's starting pitching. That's because, at the moment, the Phillies do not have much in the way of it. As good as Cole Hamels has been over the last 5 years, 80 percent of the team's starts will need to be made by someone other than him. And that's assuming he isn't traded. The reports on Cliff Lee's balky left elbow have been optimistic, but reports are always optimistic this time of year.

MY BROTHER lived in Lancaster, Pa., until recently and this is what I used to see when I went there in the late 1990s. Orioles hats. Lots and lots of them. Pirates hats, too. Yankees for sure, and Braves, too, and every now and then someone would have a Phillies hat, although usually one that looked as if it had been through the wash a few dozen times, or, worse, found in the woods. Lancaster isn't that far from Philadelphia and neither is Wilkes-Barre, where I once worked, or York, where I have friends, or even Harrisburg, which is twice as close to Philadelphia as it is to Pittsburgh.

ORIOLES centerfielder Adam Jones doesn't like it when fans run onto the field during a game. And he's not afraid to say what should be done to those who do. On Tuesday night, two fans came out of the Yankee Stadium stands in the bottom of the eighth, causing the game to be delayed. "I think it's idiotic for people to run on the field, and I think the punishment needs to be a lot harsher, and they should let us have a shot to kick them with our metal spikes on because it's stupid," Jones told the Baltimore Sun. "You look like an [idiot]

SARASOTA, Fla. - Standing on the dugout steps, in front of a trio of blue coolers, Bob McClure spoke, Freddy Galvis translated, and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez listened. The end came mercifully, a David Lough popout that lingered long enough over the field of play for Cody Asche to glove it in foul territory. This was was the 31st pitch of what was almost certainly Gonzalez' last inning as a candidate for the Phillies' rotation. The previous 30 left little doubt about the the work the organization's developmental staff will need to perform to get the 26-year-old righthander to a point at which he can retire major league hitters.

The Baltimore Orioles crossed an item off their trade-deadline to-do list, bolstering their bullpen by acquiring reliever Francisco Rodriguez from the Milwaukee Brewers for minor-league infielder Nick Delmonico. Rumors had it that the man known as K-Rod was a target of the Detroit Tigers - who, Phillies fans may note, are presumably still searching for a possible closer. Rodriguez was once one of the best relievers in the game, saving a major-league-record 62 games for the Los Angeles Angels in 2008.

NEW YORK - In less than two years, Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis has gone from nearly swinging-and-missing his way out of baseball to matching Reggie Jackson for most home runs by an American League player before the all-star break with 37. "What CD is doing right now is special," fellow Orioles all-star Adam Jones said Monday night. Davis, the leading vote-getter in all-star balloting, is hitting .315. He joins Detroit's Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera as the first two players ever to hit at least 30 homers and drive in 90 runs before the break.

WHILE WEI-YIN CHEN languished on the disabled list for 2 months, despondent about his hiatus from the big leagues, the Baltimore Orioles struggled to fill out an inconsistent rotation. Chen made his long-awaited return last night, and after he threw seven innings of three-hit ball in a 6-1 win over the visiting Texas Rangers, it was hard to determine who felt the happiest: the Taiwanese lefthander, the other 24 players in the clubhouse or manager Buck Showalter. "Winning the ballgame is real huge to me," Chen said through an interpreter.

On the 36th such occasion, the righthander finally gave a lead away. Chris Denorfia and Everth Cabrera hit two-out RBI singles off Johnson in the ninth, and the visiting San Diego Padres got a home run from Carlos Quentin in a 3-2 victory last night.

YU DARVISH was one out from a perfect game when Marwin Gonzalez grounded a clean single through the pitcher's legs, and the visiting Texas Rangers beat the Houston Astros, 7-0, on Tuesday night. The celebrated righthander from Japan struck out 14 and appeared to be in complete control before Gonzalez smacked the first pitch up the middle. Darvish was unable to get his glove down in time and the ball skittered into centerfield well beyond a desperate dive by shortstop Elvis Andrus.
