• Catcher Matt Wieters, on the DL with a sore elbow, threw again on Saturday, but manager Buck Showalter didn't make too much of it. "Nothing really new there," Showalter said.
• Entering Saturday, The Orioles were tops in the Major Leagues with a .290 batting average with runners in scoring position. According to STATS Inc., the Orioles never have led the American League in this category for an entire season, finishing second four times.
• J.J. Hardy is still looking for his first homer this season. He's gone 74 games and 289 at-bats without one entering Saturday, the last coming on Sept. 6, 2013. It's the longest such drought of his career.
