Orioles fans gave home-plate umpire Jerry Meals a loud cheer when the umpire's names were announced before Sunday's game. Meals made the controversial call on the Mark Teixeira double-play grounder that ended Saturday's 5-4 Baltimore victory. Meals called Teixeira out at first when replays showed him as being safe. If Meals had called him safe, the game would have been tied.

• Wilson Betemit moved into the No. 3 spot in the lineup as the DH for Sunday's game as Showalter shifted the lineup around to compensate for the loss of Markakis.

• If the Orioles win on Sunday, they would capture the season series, 10-8. That would be the first time Baltimore has beaten New York in the season series since 1997.

• The Orioles now have homered three times in three straight games, the first time in franchise history they've done that while playing New York.

• Working the broadcast for Sunday's finale for TSN, Cal Ripken drew a roar from the crowd when he was shown on the video scoreboard in the third inning.
