Baltimore Orioles Notes, Quotes 2009-04-13
--RHP Brian Bass allowed four home runs in relief Sunday, helping the Rays to an 11-3 series finale win. Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist, Jason Bartlett and Carlos Pena all took Bass deep in his 3 1/3 innings out of the bullpen.

--C Chad Moeller started his second straight day game, going 1-for-4 as the No. 8 hitter. He drove in a run with a ninth-inning ground-out, and is batting .429 through the first two series.

BY THE NUMBERS: 13 -- American League teams who employed Japanese-born players before the Orioles. RHP Koji Uehara enabled the Orioles to join the rest of the junior circuit, while the Reds, Marlins and Diamondbacks have never had a Japanese-born player on their big league rosters.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "What I like is all three have the ability to do a variety of things. They can work the count -- and that's something (Adam Jones) is getting better at -- they can walk and they can use the other side of the field." -- Orioles manager Dave Trembley on his top-third of the lineup: Brian Roberts, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis.
