Emma Short’s favorite baseball player ever is Adam Jones, because he blows bubbles in the outfield and he’s an All-Star and a role model and, yeah, they shared a cool high-five two years ago. But her second-favorite baseball player ever, for now anyway, might be the one she saw Sunday instead of Jones. Because that Oriole, left-hander Richard Bleier, brought her unimaginably closer to her favorite Oriole.Sunday was Youth Baseball Day at Camden Yards, and Emma, 6, headed down from Elkton with her parents to watch the Orioles play the Toronto Blue Jays. And to see Jones again. In 2015, she met the center fielder on the ballpark’s dugout steps. A shot of their embrace, Jones’ hands slapping hers, was shared on the Orioles’ Facebook page.Last year’s Youth Baseball Day was canceled, so Emma was eager Sunday. She was there with her North East Little League team, and her mother, Amy, had had the idea to bring Emma’s noveltyplaying card to the game. (Bats: right. Throws: right. Height: 4 feet. Weight: 42 pounds.) Emma wanted to giftit to the ballplayer on her card she had called her favorite.Only, when her team walked by the Orioles before the game, Jones wasn’t there. It was Bleier who was up on the dugout steps.Emma handed him her card. “Hey, could you give this to Adam?” Devin recalled her asking. Bleier smiled and laughed and said, “Sure,” and he put the card in his pocket.Knowing what it meant to have a baseball crush as a kid, Devin found his seat after the Orioles’ pregame parade of youth baseball teams Sundayand took out his phone. He opened the Twitter app and began to type a message. It was for Jones.The Orioles made it tough for the announced 36,632 to cheer anything that afternoon. They lost, 3-1, wasting a game-high three hits from Jones, and the Shorts made the hour-long drive back home.As night started to fall, the Shorts were out in their yard, playing with Emma and their young son, Kellen. Devin went inside to check his phone, which was charging. He had a Twitter notification, about an hour or two old. He couldn’t believe what it said. Neither could Emma.“He sent you a message?!?!” Devin recalled her asking incredulously. “And I'm like, 'Yeah.' She was pretty impressed.” Apparently, so was Adam Jones.“I think that ultimately speaks to his character and what kind of person he is,” said Devin, who, indulging his own fandom, took a screenshot not only of the Twitter conversation but also of the lock-screen notification that Jones had tweeted at him. “I know that celebrities like this, whether it's athletes or actors and musicians, get berated by people on social media in good and bad ways. But to see someone actually take the time out to respond like that was pretty amazing.”What this means for the future of Emma and Jones’ relationship, her father cannot say. She is young enough to know only of Jones’ on-field exploits of his encounters with racism earlier this month in Boston, Devin said: “It's certainly something that at some point in time will become a relevant topic to discuss with her, but, yeah, she's in kindergarten.” She is also mature enough to be rightly “really psyched” about their card-carrying connections.“I'm sure he will be her favorite player forever, without a doubt,” Devin said.He hopes they can meet again soon. Maybe at an autograph signing, he suggested, though it’s unclear who would be more eager for the other’s signature.

“If I could have gone back and done it all over, if I would have taken a hack at the 3-1 pitch,” Davis said about his eighth-inning at-bat. (Baltimore Sun video)“If I could have gone back and done it all over, if I would have taken a hack at the 3-1 pitch,” Davis said about his eighth-inning at-bat. (Baltimore Sun video)The Orioles continued to struggle at the plate Wednesday as they were held to three runs on six hits in being swept by the Minnesota Twins.The Orioles were outscored 20-10 and were outhit 37-19 during the three-game series. Orioles first baseman Chris Davis said he thinks the team has shown some signs of tiring.“It’s just a combination of some guys with a little bit of fatigue,” Davis said. “We had a few series where we were really swinging the bats well. I felt like we were doing some things really positive. Obviously, the last couple of series we really haven’t had much to show for it. It’s just kind of the way it goes sometimes.”The Orioles' battershave struggled to get going, including Davis, who was 2-for-24 with 12 strikeouts during the just-completed six-game homestand. However, in the seventh inning Wednesday, Davis hit a leadoff home run to right field for his 10th long ball of the season.Eduardo A. EncinaThe Orioles rallied late against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon, but couldn’t avoid being swept at home for the first time this season with a 4-3 loss in front of an announced 32,267 at Camden Yards.The Orioles rallied late against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon, but couldn’t avoid being swept at home for the first time this season with a 4-3 loss in front of an announced 32,267 at Camden Yards. (Eduardo A. Encina)Davis went hitlessin his other three at-bats, leaving four runners on base, including a missed opportunity in the eighth. He came up with two on and two outs in the inning, but struck out.“If I could have gone back and done it all over, if I would have taken a hack at the 3-1 pitch. [The] 3-2 pitch was the best pitch he threw me,” Davis said about his eighth-inning at-bat. “You go after it or you don’t. It kind of just locked me up. Obviously, I haven’t been feeling great at the plate lately. ... It’s frustrating on a number of different levels, but you can’t hang your heads about it; you’ve got to keep going and keep after it.”Davis is hopeful that he and the rest of the Orioles offense can bounce back for their next series against the Houston Astros.“It’s tough to win games when you don’t swing the bats well, but we’ll put it behind us, take this off-day, get a little bit of rest, and get after them in Houston,” he said.
