Baltimore Orioles Notes, Quotes 2008-05-28
--1B Kevin Millar hit his seventh and eighth homers of the season and added a double. It was his first multi-homer game of the year. It was a virtual repeat of his three-hit, three-RBI game of May 10 at Kansas City.

--LF Luke Scott has a total of five hits -- four homers and a double -- since May 16. The last of the home runs came Tuesday. He has five homers since May 13, but prior to this stretch he had batted in 28 games since April 8 without hitting a home run.

--SS Freddie Bynum is presently getting the opportunity from manager Dave Trembley to be the everyday starter at shortstop, but he is 0 for his last 13, including 0-for-3 on Tuesday. Bynum has only two RBIs for the season.

--RF Nick Markakis reverted to his "0-for" mode on Tuesday when he was 0-for-6. He had an outstanding game Monday, going 3-for-4, but had been 0-for-11 in his three starts before that and is now 3-for-21 in his last five games.

--LHP Brian Burres, who allowed only one run in eight innings in his previous start against the Yankees, was battered Tuesday for four homers and a total of eight runs in 3 2/3 innings. He got a no-decision because of the Orioles' two four-run innings.

--RHP Steve Trachsel will again have his turn to start skipped because the Orioles have an off day Thursday. The decision was announced by manager Dave Trembley, who refused to comment further on Trachsel's future beyond that.

BY THE NUMBERS: 3 -- Times the Orioles were shut out in a recent 10-game span.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "There's a pattern going here where if I miss a spot, the ball's getting hit very hard, and there's no reason for that. At some point, you're going to have a point where the guys are at least fouling them off, and that's not really happening. So we've got to figure out exactly what is going on." -- RHP Steve Trachsel on his May 24 performance.
