The Paper Trail of June 5

by John Perrotto

Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe writes that the Red Sox's Clay Buchholz isn't lacking as he pitches a five-hit shutout against the Orioles. Benjamin also writes that Jeremy Hermida is injured in a collision.

Kevin Van Valkenberg of the Baltimore Sun writes that the Orioles were awful in Juan Samuel's debut as interim manager after the firing of Dave Trembley. The Sun's Jeff Zrebiec writes that next for Andy MacPhail and the Orioles is to stop the young players' regression. The Sun's Kevin Cowherd writes that next up on the Orioles' hot seat is MacPhail.

Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that Roy Halladay isn't perfect this time but helps the Phillies beat the Padres. Narducci also writes that Jim Joyce says good things have come from his bad call. Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press writes that Bud Selig was right  not to clean up a perfect mess.

Jim Peltz of the Los Angeles Times writes that the Dodgers enjoy a '70s flashback in ending the Braves' nine-game winning streak.

Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that Adam Wainwright at last gets a shutout as he holds the Brewers to two hits.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Grady Sizemore has knee surgery and is done for the season. Hoynes also writes that Justin Masterson finally gets a winas the Indians beat the White Sox.

Mike Rutsey of the Toronto Sun writes that the Blue Jays unload on A.J. Burnett as Jose Bautista's two home runs carry them over the Yankees.

Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic writes that the Diamondbacks rally past the Rockies to end their 10-game losing streak.

Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that Justin Morneau's bat carries the Twins past the Athletics.

Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune writes that Carlos Zambrano loses in his return to the rotation as the Cubs fall to the Astros. Sullivan also writes that Carlos Lee denies trade rumors.

Bernardo Fallas of the Houston Chronicle writes that Felipe Paulino finally wins as the Astros run their winning streak to four games.

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram writes that Justin Smoak sparks the Rangers' victory over the Rays. The Star-Telegram's Drew Davison writes that Vladimir Guerrero returns at designated hitter for the Rangers.

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star writes that the Royals beat the Tigers before a Sky Show honors their 1985 champions.

Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes that a revived Hideki Matsui leads the Angels over the Mariners. Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times writes that the Angels are not desperate for a first baseman.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post writes the Nationals snap their three-game losing streak by beating the Reds.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that the Giants play longball to pick up Buster Posey in their victory over the Pirates. Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News writes that Pat Burrell returns home with the Giants.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News writes that R.A. Dickey and Ruben Tejada key the Mets' home victory over the Marlins. Dan Martin of the New York Post writes that Luis Castillo goes on the disabled list and Tejada becomes the everyday second baseman as he is recalled from Triple-A Norfolk. Martin also writes that Carlos Beltran bats in a rehab game. More from Martin: Jon Niese's activation from the disabled list could oust Ollie Perez.

Larry LaRue of the Tacoma News-Tribune writes that if Ken Griffey Jr. returns in any role for the Mariners, it will be in 2011. John Romano of the St. Petersburg Times wonders if Barry Bonds or Griffey is living with the greater regret.

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes that Chipper Jones says the dislabed list is a possibility. O'Brien also writes that Takashi Saito lands on the DL and Craig Kimbrel is recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News writes that Dave Eiland takes a personal leave of absence.
