BALTIMORE -- Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was hospitalized Monday with a high fever that will force him to miss his scheduled start Wednesday against the Detroit Tigers. Guthrie began running a fever on Sunday and entered the hospital after his temperature started to rise. "Our doctor felt like it was a form of pneumonia," manager Buck Showalter said after Baltimore beat the Detroit Tigers 5-1 on Monday. Guthrie was absent at Baltimores home opener, an indication of just how bad he felt. "For (Guthrie) not to make the introductions, he is pretty ill," Showalter said. "They are going to keep him overnight tonight." Guthries illness forced Showalter to make yet another adjustment to his starting rotation. Brad Bergesen will start Wednesday in place of Guthrie, whom the Orioles hope to have back on April 10. Left-hander Brian Matusz, the No. 2 pitcher in the rotation, missed his first start and was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib injury. Guthrie (1-0) started on opening day and blanked Tampa Bay for eight innings in a 4-1 victory. He has been one of the Orioles most sturdy pitchers over the past four seasons, working in 32 games in 2007, 30 in 2008, 33 in 2009 and 32 last year. Meanwhile, left fielder Luke Scott was kept out of the starting lineup for a second straight day with a strained groin. The injury occurred Saturday night at Tampa Bay. He did not play Monday, but Showalter said Scott could have been used as a pinch hitter if necessary. Andrew Luck Jersey . The party never happened -- at least not at the ballpark.

HOUSTON -- With one swing of the bat from Jimmy Rollins on Friday night, the Philadelphia Phillies put a tough loss to the Houston Astros a night before behind them. Rollins hit a leadoff homer, Domonic Brown had a two-run shot and John Mayberry and Ryan Howard each had three RBIs as the Phillies beat the Astros 12-6. The Phillies rebounded from Thursday nights 6-4 loss to Houston, which broke a seven-game winning streak and left them four games back for the second NL wild-card spot. Fridays win cut it to 3 1/2, with the Cardinals and Dodgers still playing on the West Coast. "Its huge," Philadelphia starter Cole Hamels said of Rollins homer. "Thats something that Jimmys done a lot in his career, and when hes able to do that, it really kind of puts the edge into our favour and really gets guys fired up to go out and perform at the highest level. With what we have at stake going on right now, thats what we need." Rollins homer keyed a four-run first inning on a night when the Phillies came one run shy of a season high. "We dont have too many where we can kind of relax," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "At the same time, tonight, that was good for us. Getting some hits and scoring some runs was good for us." Rollins downplayed the importance of his homer, but did acknowledge that it started the night on a high note. "That was probably a good thing," he said. "Even better, we didnt stop there. This team plays us tough. Always have, dont know why. Whether theyre a team well over .500 or a team well under .500, we show up and we have a problem with them." A two-run homer by Matt Downs got Houston within 5-3 in the fourth. Mayberrys two-run single in the fifth stretched the lead to 7-3. Justin Maxwell added a solo shot in the fifth for the last-place Astros. Hamels (15-6) gave up four runs and seven hits while fanning eight over seven innings, and tied a career high for wins set in 2007. It was the first victory over the Astros for the left-hander in his last five tries, and his first win overall since Aug. 18 after not factoring into the decision in his last three outings. "If you get four runs off Cole Hamels, then its a big night offensively," Downs said. "It is always tough to put runs up against a guy like that, but they swung the bats extremely well tonight." Hamels threw 95 pitches, ending a streak off 14 straight games with at least 100 pitches.dddddddddddd He liked having a big lead before stepping on the mound. "Just being able to come out and put up the runs early is huge, just because you want to just get the momentum back," Hamels said. "Especially after last night, you want to get things rolling again and get the positive mojo going so we can get back into how we know weve been playing baseball for the last week." Edgar Gonzalez (2-1), starting in place of Bud Norris -- scratched on Thursday because of a blister on the index finger of his throwing hand -- needed 32 pitches to get through the first inning and was done after the fourth. Browns homer, to the second deck in right field, made it 9-4 in the seventh. After Rollins homered into the right-field seats for his 42nd career leadoff shot, extending his team record, Juan Pierre drew a walk, stole second base and scored on a single by Chase Utley. Utley swiped second base before making it 3-0 when he scored on a ground-rule double by Howard. Mayberrys two-out RBI single left the Phillies up 4-0. Mayberry, who finished with three hits, doubled in the fourth and scored on a single by Kevin Frandsen to push the lead to 5-1. Chuckie Fick walked Utley and Howard with one out in the fifth before being lifted for Fernando Rodriguez. After an intentional walk to Brown loaded the bases, Mayberrys single was deflected by Rodriguez and rolled to second baseman Jose Altuve. Utley and Carlos Ruiz scored before Altuve could get the throw to the plate and the Phillies increased the lead to 7-3. Utley had an RBI double in the eighth and Howard drove in two runs with a single. NOTES: Jeff Kent, who played for the Astros from 2003-04, was scheduled to throw out the first pitch on Friday as Houston continues the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the franchise. But Kent was still recovering from breaking four ribs and puncturing one of his lungs in a recent dirt bike accident, so his 9-year-old son Kaeden threw the pitch. Kent is set to appear "Survivor: Philippines," the 25th season of the show, which premieres later this month. "The opportunity came for me to challenge myself and compete and compete socially, which was a challenge in itself," he said of the show. "It was a fun experience." ... Ruiz was the only player in Philadelphias lineup without a hit Friday. ' ' '
