Worth noting

• The Orioles and Rays are the only teams in the American League that have not made three errors in a game this year. Baltimore entered Tuesday's game with a Major League-best .992 fielding percentage.

• Pitchers Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland signed autographs and played games with critically ill children from the Casey Cares Foundation on Tuesday afternoon. The event took place at Extra Innings, an indoor baseball facility that donated the space. The Caring Connections party is one six programs run by the Casey Cares Foundation, which provides uplifting programs for critically ill children and their families.

• The Orioles left a season-high 15 men on base in Monday's loss, but Showalter is not going to ask his club to change their approach.

"There's never been a perfect player," he said. "That's why there are, every once in a while, some outs made in the game. And every once in a while, somebody does strike somebody out. Otherwise we'd be here forever. That's why I have empathy, not sympathy, with how hard the game is to play. The same thing you love guys for is the same things ... They are not robots. They are not some computer-driven cyborg. They are human beings. This is hard. This is hard to do. But at the same time, I see their frustration. It only compounds it if I, and we as a staff, and teammates compound it."
