» September 1, 2000: The Baltimore Orioles turn the season's fifth triple play and the first triple-killing in Jacobs Field history in the second inning against the Cleveland Indians. On a pop up to short the infield fly rule is not called. With runners at first and second and no outs, O's SS Melvin Mora lets Sandy Alomar's pop fly drop, apparently intentionally, and throws to 2B Jerry Hairston who tags the runner at second as well as the runner coming from first. Alomar, believing the infield fly rule had been called, retreated to the dugout and was called out for leaving the basepath resulting in a 6-4-3 triple play. Charlie Manuel doesn't agree and gets tossed. Cleveland overcomes the TP to win, 5–2, behind Steve Finley.
» April 7, 2001: In the 10th against the Indians, the Orioles shift LF Delino DeShields behind 2B with one out and the bases loaded. RF Brady Anderson moves to shallow LF and CF Melvin Mora moves to right center. Jolbert Cabrera hits a fly near the LF line to Anderson who fires a strike to get the surprised runner Ellis Burks trying to score. The O's score two in the top of the 11th to win, 4–2.

» September 4, 2002:
Aaron Myette, ejected yesterday for two pitches behind Melvin Mora, starts today's game, allowing six of the 11 walks in an 8–3 loss to Baltimore. According to the New York Times, it is the first back to back start by a pitcher since Steve McCatty in 1980 [though five pitchers -- Dennis Martinez (Baltimore), Bert Blyleven (Cleveland), Pete Vuckovich (Milwaukee), Rick Langford (Oakland), and Juan Eichelberger (San Diego) -- made the last start before the 1981 strike and the first start after].
