Worth noting

• The Orioles need one more victory to guarantee at least a .500 record for the first time since winning the American League East in 1997.

• Pitcher Troy Patton and designated hitter Jim Thome both will be doing work in the Instructional League, which starts Sunday. Patton (sprained ankle) needs two or three more outings before possibly being ready to come back. The team's not exactly sure when Thome (herniated disk in neck) will return.

• Baltimore came into Thursday's game with 110 homers at home, 11 away from the team record for homers at Camden Yards.

• For this weekend's series in Oakland, Joe Saunders is going to pitch Friday with Zach Britton throwing Saturday. Sunday's starting pitcher has not been announced.
