Orioles update The Orioles are understandably anxious to get a victory into the book after losing both ends of a two-game series to the Texas Rangers at Oriole Park. The explosive Texas lineup hit six home runs in the series, including a heart- breaking 11th-inning shot by minor-league journeyman Doug Strange on Wednesday night. Manager Johnny Oates can curse the fates for that, but he cannot complain about the health of his club. The Orioles entered the season without a single player on the disabled list and did not suffer any casualties during the opening series. The road trip concludes with three games against the Rangers at Arlington Stadium.

Mariners update The Mariners, who split their two-game, season-opening series with the defending World Champion Toronto Blue Jays, are hoping that new manager Lou Piniella can lead the club into a successful new era, but the club is longer on hope than it is on experience. The Seattle roster features seven rookies -- four of whom entered the season with no major-league experience -- and is without several key players because of injuries. Leading hitter Edgar Martinez opened the year on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring and rookie sensation Dave Fleming is sidelined with a sore elbow. Brian Holman (shoulder surgery) and Mackey Sasser (shoulder blade fracture) also are on the DL.
