Arthur Rhodes was still on the erratic side last night, but the rookie lefthander turned in his best outing in four major-league starts.In four-plus innings, Rhodes allowed five hits and three runs (onearned) and struck out four. He left with a 5-2 lead after Bernie Williams walked and Steve Sax singled to open the fifth."I told Al [pitching coach Al Jackson] that I was going to try tget him through the fifth inning and get a win," said manager John Oates. "But I wasn't going to risk a win.didn't want the hole to get any deeper.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- It was the earliest that Gregg Olson had been waved in from the bullpen. He was not scheduled to pitch until the eighth inning, but he was called on to be the starter when Ben McDonald was scratched with a sore elbow just minutes before the game.Olson did not get much time to warm up, so he struggled briefly at the outset, but he retired the final eight batters he faced after giving up a run on two hits in the first inning. The Baltimore Orioles went on to lose, 5-4, to the Montreal Expos, but Olson was not involved in the decision.

When Jeff Robinson left last night's game with one out in the eighth inning he had thrown 102 pitches. There have been times when that has been a five- or six-inning total for the big but sometimes erratic righthander.Almost 70 percent of those pitches (70) were strikes and there was only one walk -- to the second hitter of the game."That's what he's supposed to do," manager John Oates said after the Orioles beat the Indians, 2-1, for their second straight win. "He can be a very effective pitcher when he throws strikes.

As surprises go, the announcement that Orioles manager Frank Robinson will return with his entire coaching staff ranked right up there with death and taxes.There was never any doubt that Robinson would postpone his move to the front office for at least one more year, and two weeks ago he said of his coaches, "If I'm back, they're back."So at least this much is known about 1991: Johnny Oates (first base), Cal Ripken Sr. (third), Tom McCraw (hitting), Al Jackson (pitching), Elrod Hendricks (bullpen)

ATLANTA -- Under ideal circumstances, the Orioles most likely would have preferred to wait until after the World Series to announce the completion of their coaching staff.But what was baseball's worst kept secret, has now become official. Greg Biagini, Dick Bosman and Davey Lopes were named today to the coaching staff in an announcement made by general manager Roland Hemond.Ever since Tom McCraw, who was originally asked to return as hitting coach, accepted the same job with the New York Mets, the makeup of manager John Oates' staff has been a foregone conclusion.
