BOSTON (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles keep winning under Buck Showalter -- even in a place where they've had lots of trouble the past few years. Ty Wigginton had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and Luke Scott followed with an RBI single in the seventh inning to, lift the Orioles to a rare Fenway Park win, 4-2 over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night. The Orioles, rejuvenated since Showalter took over as manager Aug. 3, won for the 11th time 15 games. Baltimore won for just the fourth time in their last 21 games in Fenway.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles keep winning under new manager Buck Showalter. Jeremy Guthrie scattered two hits over six innings, Adam Jones hit a two-run triple and the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 Friday night. Luke Scott hit his 22nd homer this season, helping Baltimore improve to 9-2 under Showalter. "It's not a coincidence that we've turned it around since Buck showed up," Guthrie said. "He hasn't done anything necessarily different to make us win games, but we know what he expects.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A pitching duel between an up-and-coming lefty and a veteran right-hander was decided by a utility player in the role of emergency starter. Luke French took a one-hitter into the eighth inning, Matt Tuiasosopo homered and had a career-high four RBIs, and the Seattle Mariners beat Kevin Millwood and the Baltimore Orioles 4-0 on Tuesday night. Tuiasosopo had an RBI double in the fifth and hit a three-run homer in the ninth. He learned 20 minutes before the game that he would start in place of Ryan Langerhans, who was a late scratch with a severe headache.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles didn't need a history lesson to feel good about sweeping the Boston Red Sox. There were plenty of other reasons to celebrate the accomplishment. Ty Wigginton doubled home the winning run in the 10th inning following a throwing error by Boston closer Jonathan Papelbon, giving the Orioles a 3-2 victory Sunday and their first three-game sweep of the Red Sox at home in 36 years. None of the Orioles really cared that disco was the craze or that Gerald Ford was President the last time Baltimore swept a three-game home set from Boston.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Somehow, Dave Trembley has kept his wits about him through Baltimore's awful April start. The manager's mood got a big lift after the Orioles finally won again. Everybody's did. "This game today for everybody here feels like a playoff game," said third baseman Miguel Tejada, who didn't even take part as he nurses a sore right hip. Ty Wigginton homered and drove in four runs, and the Orioles snapped a nine-game skid by beating the Oakland Athletics 8-3 on Sunday and spoiling Brett Anderson's first outing since receiving a hefty new contract.

SEATTLE (AP) -- A week ago, the Mariners were sinking. No passable starting pitching beyond ace Felix Hernandez. No shortage of angst over when Cliff Lee will get healthy to rescue the season. Now, six wins in seven games later, there's still angst -- over which stellar starter should go when Lee returns. Jason Vargas extended a stretch of strong outings by the rotation in Seattle's 3-1 victory over the struggling Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. One night after Doug Fister carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning for a win, Vargas (2-1)
