KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cesar Izturis and Nick Markakis each drove in three runs and the Baltimore Orioles won again in their favorite road ballpark, beating the Kansas City Royals 9-5 Thursday night. Baltimore has won 15 of 18 against Kansas City and is 43-15 against the Royals since 2001, including 24-7 at Kauffman Stadium. The Orioles did it this time with a big night offensively -- 12 hits -- and a just-good-enough start from Jeremy Guthrie (3-3). Aubrey Huff homered and Melvin Mora had two RBIs for the Orioles, who won for just the second time in 11 road games overall.

BALTIMORE - Miguel Tejada rescinded his demand to be traded by the Orioles, telling team officials during a phone call Saturday that he's willing to help Baltimore become a contender in the AL East. Angered over the Orioles' inability to garner additional talent this offseason, Tejada twice expressed his desire to be traded, the last time on Dec. 29. But he backed off that stance during a conversation with teammate Melvin Mora and vice president Jim Duquette. "Miguel said all he wanted was for the team to improve.

BALTIMORE - Melvin Mora was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday by the Baltimore Orioles, who couldn't risk waiting a week or longer before the third baseman recovered from a sprained left foot. The injury occurred during a play at the plate on July 1 against the Los Angeles Angels. Mora missed six straight games, then received one at-bat as a pinch-hitter the day before the All-Star break. He started Thursday night but left after one inning. After undergoing an examination Friday, Mora said he would be out for at least a week.

BALTIMORE - Mike Mussina has struggled at Camden Yards before. Just never as a Yankee. Rodrigo Lopez allowed one run over 6 2/3 innings and the Baltimore Orioles battered Mussina, ending the Yankees' eight-game winning streak with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night. "I've had these kind of games here before," said Mussina, an Oriole from 1991-2000. "It's tough anyplace to go walking out that early in a ballgame and know it wasn't your best effort. " Melvin Mora homered and Tony Batista and B.J. Surhoff each drove in two runs for the Orioles, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

"Talk to me in August" was the response of my cousin, a Boston Red Sox fan, after the Baltimore Orioles completed a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees a few weeks ago. He wasn't about to entertain the idea of the Orioles being American League East contenders in April. But I sure was. Still am in May. With Brian Roberts on base, Melvin Mora at the plate and Miguel Tejada on deck, anything seems possible these days. Sure, we're only a month into the season, but the statistics already are on the Orioles' side.

Who'd have thunk it? Two weeks ago, I left the Baltimore Orioles for dead. They were floundering at the bottom of the AL East with a 5-11 record and their pitching was downright awful. Today the Orioles are sitting at the .500 mark after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The pitching has improved and the O's are getting some great hitting from Marty Cordova, Geronimo Gil, Jay Gibbons and Melvin Mora. Since Baltimore decided to start playing ball, I've gotten a few e-mails from readers reminding me what I wrote.

Mark Reynolds is taking his big swings to Baltimore. The Orioles acquired the strikeout-prone slugger from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday for right-handed relievers David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio in a trade between last-place teams trying to upgrade in different ways. “We needed to improve our offense,” Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said. “We think Mark Reynolds very much represents that.” There is no doubt that Reynolds can hit the ball a long way — when he hits it, that is. Reynolds has averaged nearly 35 homers for the last three years.

BALTIMORE -- It's fun to be a member of the Baltimore Orioles again. An influx of youth has created a sense of optimism within a franchise that hasn't had a winning season since 1997. While the arrival of former No. 1 draft pick Matt Wieters last Friday created a national buzz in Baltimore, the rebirth of the Orioles began several weeks earlier. That's when the team began to rework a rotation that included journeymen Adam Eaton and Mark Hendrickson. Eaton is gone and Hendrickson is in the bullpen.

Orioles or gladiolas - you make the call This is a bad time to be a fan of that erstwhile baseball team that's known as the Baltimore Orioles. They used to be what was called a model franchise and now they're just, well, sort of a model. I love the - as Howard Cosell used to call them - "Birds of Baltimore," but the Birds as I knew them have flown the coop. To put it frankly, they don't score a lot of runs. Joan Collins put more people on base than these guys, and I don't even know who Joan Collins is. Through their first few games they were averaging a run every nine innings, which in soccer is Disneyland, but in baseball is not good.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Aubrey Huff did not look like someone who struggles with the bases loaded. Huff hit his first career grand slam and Seth McClung won for the first time in two years as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-5 on Friday night. Damon Hollins hit a solo homer in Tampa Bay's five-run second before Huff's 11th homer of the season gave the Devil Rays a 6-3 lead. Huff entered with just one hit in his previous 19 at-bats with the bases loaded.
