Carroll County Times: No worries about winless duo
Jeremy Guthrie did get his first win yesterday, so the headline in today's story is dated, but the CC Times says it ain't the pitching that's the O's problem. -duck

Maggio: Long day at Target Field
"8:52 a.m. – Only Orioles writer Brittany Ghiroli and FOX Sports North personality/Star Tribune columnist Jim Souhan are in the press box." So you want to be a MLB writer, do you? -duck

Durango Herald News: 'The Oriole Way' has lost its bearings
It's AP article a few days old, but I never managed to clip. David Ginsburg reflects upon the fact Baltimore used to be a unwelcome destination for opposing teams, now it's treated like a vacation stop where you pick up a few wins in the gift store while staying. -duck

IN THE MINORSNorfolk lost 10-3 despite Corey Patterson going 3-for-4 with 3 doubles, Bowie lost 4-3 as Tim Bascom went 6.0 IP, gave up 2 runs and had 8 K's against 0 walks, Frederick lost 2-1 as the Keys managed just 2 hits on the night while Cole McCurry gave up just 2 runs (1 earned) in 6.0 IP with 5 K's and 0 BBs, and Delmarva won 4-2 without help from Garabez Rosa, who went 3-for-4 for the Shorebirds, yet didn't have an RBI or a run scored. No one else on the team had more than one hit. That's odd. Jesse Beal pitched 7.0 innings and gave up 2 ER on 5 hits and 2 BBs with 4 K's.
