On the field: Brady Anderson is on a serious roll. His homer leading off the first was his sixth of the season, breaking Don Buford's club record of five. No wonder that in the eighth inning yesterday, in the rather drab final few innings of the Orioles' 10-5 win, fans in the center-field stands suddenly began chanting Anderson's name. "Brady's the best," said Bill Ripken. "What more do you want? What can you say about that but 'wow'?
In the dugout: For the second straight game, the Orioles' bullpen could rest easy. Roger McDowell threw the last 2 1/3 innings after replacing Mike Mussina, meaning that Arthur Rhodes, Keith Shepherd, Jesse Orosco, et al., could have the day off.
