Hits and misses

September 20, 1997|By Roch Kubatko

On the field: Scott Kamieniecki was trying to become the Orioles' fifth pitcher with at least 10 wins, joining Mike Mussina, Scott Erickson, Jimmy Key and Arthur Rhodes. It would be the first time the Orioles had that many double-digit winners since 1985 (Scott McGregor, Dennis Martinez, Mike Boddicker, Storm Davis and Don Aase).

In the dugout: Manager Davey Johnson moved Brady Anderson back into the leadoff spot, dropping Roberto Alomar to second. Anderson had batted cleanup his past four games.

In the clubhouse: "I failed tonight. I just can't think about that tomorrow. Tomorrow's a new day and I have to get ready for it. If I take this home with me, I'll just carry it all day and might spoil another game." -- Jesse Orosco, who gave up a tie-breaking homer to Phil Nevin in the 10th inning.
