Baltimore Orioles Notes, Quotes 2009-05-13
--LHP Mark Hendrickson was rocked in two innings Tuesday, allowing six hits and five earned runs. The journeyman may lose his rotation slot if LHP Rich Hill returns this week.

--OF Lou Montanez kept his grasp on the starting left field job Tuesday, even if he began the game as the designated hitter. Montanez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and was removed from the DH slot in the top of the ninth as a defensive replacement for LF Ty Wigginton.

--1B Aubrey Huff ripped a three-run home run in the first inning Sunday, a lead that would stand into the seventh inning. Huff mocked Yankees RHP Joba Chamberlain, pumping his fist in Chamberlain-like fashion as he rounded first base and repeating the motion as he crossed the plate.

BY THE NUMBERS: 5 -- Consecutive quality starts, through May 10, by RHP Koji Uehara.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "For a couple of days there, I pretty much thought that I threw my last game. A lot of things run through your mind." -- RHP Dennis Sarfate, on his mind-set between feeling numbness in his right middle finger and the promising results that he'll return in July.
