• The Orioles announced on Tuesday that there will be a new ticket promotion to celebrate the team's push for the postseason, in what is the 20th Anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

In an effort to encourage fans to "BUCKle Up!" and Back the Birds, the team will offer discounted prices for select locations during the Orioles' series against the Rays Sept. 11-13.

For all three games of the series, while supplies last, Eutaw Street Bleacher seats are $4.00 (regularly $19) and all Left Field Lower Box seats are $8.00 (regularly $32). Fans who already purchased regularly priced seats in the Eutaw Street Bleachers or Left Field Lower Box will receive a refund for the difference in ticket value.

The team is encouraging fans to use the hashtag #BUCKleUp on Twitter throughout the remainder of the season to promote the Orioles' push for the postseason.

• Jim Thome is feeling better and will visit a specialist Thursday regarding the herniated disk in his neck that has kept him sidelined since July 27. There is no timetable for his return.

• Troy Patton (sprained right ankle) threw up to 120 feet Tuesday for 10 minutes, which was 30 feet and two minutes longer than he threw on Monday. He is likely to throw from 120 feet again this week.
