Indians update

These teams opened the season against each other, with the Orioles winning two of three. The Indians set the tone for Mike Mussina on Opening Day, beating him, 4-1, to kick off the worst start of his career. Mussina allowed four runs in 7 2/3 innings and received few in return. The Orioles won the last two games, 11-7 and 6-2. Both teams have made some changes to their pitching staffs since then - the Indians mostly because of injuries, the Orioles because of ineffectiveness. Cleveland also changed its left fielder, with Ricky Ledee replacing David Justice. Orioles manager Mike Hargrove gets another crack at his former team, which began yesterday 10 games behind the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. One thing hasn't changed: The Indians still can get the ball with the best of them. They lead the league in fielding percentage. Watching the double-play combination of Omar Vizquel and Roberto Alomar is worth the price of admission.
