BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles insist theyre not watching the scoreboard. They say theyre concentrating on the last-place Toronto Blue Jays. They will need to concentrate harder. On Tuesday night, the Orioles lost for the second straight game, 4-0 to the Blue Jays. Baltimore remained 1 1-2 games behind first-place New York in the AL East. The Yankees lost 5-4 at Minnesota. After Bostons loss, Adam Jones said it was vital to ignore the Yankees. "Trying to get more runs on our scoreboard," Jones said. For the first time since Aug. 3, Baltimore was shut out as Aaron Laffey and five relievers combined on a six-hitter. Laffey (4-6) allowed five singles in 5 2-3 innings and won his first game since Aug. 5. He had been winless in his previous six starts. He neither walked nor struck out a batter. "Honestly, hes running on fumes. His stuff is not as sharp and crisp, but you cant take anything away from what he did tonight. Hes gone out there on really some guile tonight," Toronto manager John Farrell said. Relievers Steve Delabar, Brett Cecil, Brandon Lyon, Darren Oliver and Casey Janssen combined to allow one hit -- Chris Davis seventh-inning double -- in 3 1-3 innings. The Orioles loaded the bases in the ninth on an error and two walks, but Ryan Flaherty flied out on the first pitch of his at-bat to end the game. "Hes the tying run there," manager Buck Showalter said. "He just missed that ball, hitting it out of the ballpark." On Monday, Baltimore and Toronto split a doubleheader, with the Blue Jays winning the second game 9-5. The Orioles had just four runners in scoring position. Baltimore leads the season series 10-7 with one game remaining on Wednesday. "Youre always going to get everyones best shot and when we had been struggling and wed go into certain venues where theres a good emotion in the ballpark, it feeds the other team as well as us," Showalter said. The Orioles had won seven of their previous nine. "We got to get some wins. Thats what weve been doing since the first day of spring training. Now, were just in a position where each game matters. Its a cool position to be in," Jones said. Joe Saunders (2-3) pitched 6 1-3 innings, allowing four runs -- three earned -- and 11 hits. He struck out two and walked none. "I didnt feel I had my best stuff, but I feel like I kept my team in the game as best I could. I think weve played like 100 innings the last five days, so bullpens pretty burnt up, so I had to go as deep as I could," Saunders said. The Orioles played an 18-inning game in Seattle a week ago, another 11 innings against the Mariners the next night, and 12 innings in Boston last Saturday. "I think were fine. I think we might be a little bit tired, but we just have to push through, especially at this time of the year, dig down deep and find whatever you have and compete the best you can. Thats about it," Saunders said. In the first inning, the Blue Jays took a 1-0 lead on Yan Gomes RBI single that scored Brett Lawrie, who led off with a single. Rajai Davis beat out an infield single with two outs in the fourth and scored on Adeiny Hechavarrias double. In the seventh, Colby Rasmus and Edwin Encarnacion had consecutive RBI singles to give Toronto a 4-0 lead. "They came up with clutch hits, not really hard hits, but just kind of dinked it in there," Saunders said. Dylan Bundy made his second appearance for Baltimore. The 19-year-old pitched a scoreless ninth, but allowed his first hit.

The Pacers staved off elimination on Saturday when Danny Granger finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds, helping Indiana hold off a furious rally with an 89-84 victory over Chicago at Conseco Fieldhouse. Roy Hibbert added 16 points and 10 boards for Indiana, which still faces a 3-1 series deficit heading into tonights contest in the Windy City. But the Pacers dominated for almost all of Saturdays contest to prevent the Bulls from sweeping the Eastern Conference quarterfinal set. Indiana led by as many as 18 and was still up by double digits with two minutes left, but top-seeded Chicago staged a comeback and nearly pulled it off, getting within a point with 15.3 seconds left. Carlos Boozer missed a potential tying three-pointer with only a few seconds remaining, and Granger made two free throws to secure the outcome in another close game. Every contest in this series has been decided by six points or fewer. "We have had three games that weve been in there for the whole game and didnt get it closed out," Hibbert said. "Tonight we arrived." Boozer ended with 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, while Joakim Noah led them with 21 points and 14 boards. MVP frontrunner Derrick Rose suffered a sprained left ankle late in the first quarter, aand returned to the game but shot just 6-of-22 and totaled 15 points and 10 assists.dddddddddddd Rose also took only four free throws after averaging 16.3 attempts in the first three games, but said the injury didnt affect his play. "I was just missing shots," Rose said. "I thought I got a lot of good looks, but my shot was just short." The injury occurred on a drive to the hoop with about a minute left in the opening period. He planted his left foot in preparation for a layup, but it rolled outward. Rose felt the injury immediately, and started hopping around on his right foot before exiting the game and leaving for the locker room. Tests, including an MRI exam, were negative. Rose has been the dominant force for the Bulls in opening up the 3-1 series lead, as he is averaging 28.3 points with 6.0 assists and 5.3 rebounds in the four games. He sat out Mondays practice as a precaution and plans to take a painkilling injection but will play tonight. "Its getting better every day," Rose said Monday. "Ive been getting treatment on it the last couple of days. Hopefully, itll be ready. Its not broken so Im definitely playing." The Bulls also took three of four from the Pacers in the regular season. The only other time these rivals have met in the playoffs previously was in the Eastern Conference finals back in 1997-98, when the Bulls topped the Pacers 4-3, moving on to win their final NBA Championship in the Jordan era. Game 6, if necessary, will be Thursday back in Indianapolis. ' ' '
