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.

If you need a reason for why the Phillies have reportedly targeted longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to join their much-maligned front office, look no further than Citizens Bank Park's visitors' dugout last week. MacPhail's biggest triumphs came in 1987 and 1991, when he was general manager for two Minnesota Twins world championships, and he followed them by spending 12 less-successful years as president and CEO of the Chicago Cubs. But the Baltimore Orioles' recent success - their 2012 wild-card berth and last year's American League Championship Series appearance - wouldn't have happened without moves made by the now-62-year-old MacPhail.

The Phillies' best run output in eight games was still not enough to snap their skid. Their losing streak reached nine, the franchise's longest since 1999, with a 6-4 defeat Wednesday night against the Baltimore Orioles at Citizens Bank Park. Kevin Correia was charged with all six Baltimore runs, although only two were earned. Freddy Galvis' 10th fielding error of the season kick-started the Orioles' crucial four-run fourth inning. "I don't think he's a guy that should have 10 errors at this stage of the game," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.

BALTIMORE - Jerome Williams tumbled over in a heap, facedown, just outside the batter's box. An awkward leg split while covering home plate left the Phillies' struggling righthander in agony, ending a miserable 30-pitch outing that gave up six Baltimore Orioles runs. But that was just the beginning of the Phillies' most embarrassing performance of a dismal season. Baseball's worst team hit rock bottom Tuesday night in a 19-3 defeat at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, in 3 hours, 11 minutes redefining the meaning of the oft-used sports term "rebuilding.

BALTIMORE - The first 1-2-3 inning delivered by a Phillies pitcher last night came from a rightfielder who was playing in Albuquerque a year earlier. Jeff Francoeur, 31 and making his major league-pitching debut, struck out Nolan Reimold on three pitches en route to a perfect seventh. It wasn't just the first time a Phillies pitcher kept the Orioles off the bases all night - it was the first time they kept the home team off the scoreboard in seven innings, too. There are no words to describe what happened in Baltimore last night, and you probably wouldn't want to read those words, just as you cringed if you did happen to tune in to the debacle at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

BALTIMORE -  For the second time in three at-bats, rookie Maikel Franco was not happy with a third-strike call from home-plate umpire Eric Cooper. In the first inning, he was called out looking at a pitch up at the letters on his road gray jersey. In the seventh, it was one closer to his ankles. Franco let Cooper in on his feelings after the latter at-bat. Cooper threw up his right arm and told Franco to retire to the clubhouse. It didn't seem to be the answer Franco was looking for. He was livid.

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]
