Hits and misses

September 04, 1996|By Buster Olney

On the field: Angels third base coach Eddie Rodriguez may have saved the Orioles a run in the first inning. With the bases loaded and two out, Gary DiSarcina singled to right and Chili Davis scored easily. But Rodriguez stopped Garret Anderson at third, and Anderson may well have scored; it took right fielder Bobby Bonilla some time to unload his throw, which sailed high.

In the dugout: Orioles manager Davey Johnson likes what he vTC sees in his latest alignment, with Todd Zeile batting second, in between leadoff hitter Brady Anderson and No. 3 hitter Roberto Alomar. Zeile hit two homers Monday night, and doubled and hit two singles in his first three at-bats last night.

In the clubhouse: Johnson is the latest member of the Orioles to catch a flu bug that probably began with catcher Cesar Devarez and has been passed through about 10 members of the team. "I feel better than I did two days ago," said Johnson.
