CANTON, Ohio -- The Bowie Baysox took advantage of a throwing error to score two runs in the eighth inning and open the season with a 4-2 victory over the Canton Indians last night at Thurman Munson Memorial Stadium.Eight of the nine Bowie batters recorded hits and top Orioles pitching prospects Rick Forney and Armando Benitez opened and closed in impressive fashion."I'd have to say we looked pretty solid for not being in any kind of a groove," Baysox manager Pete Mackanin said. "We've spent most of the last two or three days on the road.

Alex OchoaWhat he would be doing if there were no strike: He would be competing, as a long shot, to win a job in the Orioles' outfield. Ochoa, who turns 23 later this month, batted .301 with 25 doubles, two triples and 14 homers for Double-A Bowie last year. Scouts say he has one of the best throwing arms in baseball.Where he is instead: Ochoa is waiting at his parents' home in Miami Lakes, Fla., for a resolution.How he's filling his time: Almost every day, Ochoa says, he meets with Reds infielder Lenny Harris and Astros shortstop Ricky Gutierrez, and the three throw batting practice and hit grounders and fly balls to each other.

He was the organization's prize, someone who stood as proof that the Orioles' minor-league system, though not flooded with talent, hadn't gone completely dry.By this time, Alex Ochoa was supposed to be playing right field at Camden Yards on a regular basis, but the can't-miss prospect never got the chance. That's because the Orioles didn't believe they had a choice.If they wanted outfielder Bobby Bonilla, they had to part with Ochoa. Take it, or leave it.On July 28, 1995, the Orioles took it, shipping Ochoa and center fielder Damon Buford to the New York Mets in a trade ripe with controversy.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Armando Benitez pitched the ninth inning of the Orioles' one-run victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night, collecting a save while Randy Myers warmed up in the bullpen.Yesterday, all parties vigorously denied that the Orioles had a brewing closer controversy."Randy is my closer," manager Davey Johnson said."Everyone knows it's Randy's job," Benitez said."It's a non-issue," Myers said.OK, we get the message.Myers was back in as the closer last night, recording the last two outs in a 9-7 victory for his third save of the season.

The buzzwords in Syd Thrift's first year as the Orioles' director of player development were change and movement.Players shifted classifications rapidly. The major-league team's problems with injuries and ineffective play forced a steady stream of personnel moves within the system.It was not an ideal situation, this lack of stability at the three highest levels of the minor-league ladder, as Thrift scrambled to plug with free-agent signees and jumped (forward or backward) players two levels at a time to fill holes.

UPS AND DOWNS* Peter Angelos -- UP -- He's trying to win and that distinguishes him from some other owners.* Jamie Moyer -- UP -- He has been a life-saver.* Bret Barberie -- UP -- His job for now. But check back in a week or two, because these things can change in a hurry.* Leo Gomez -- UP -- This year, his slump was cured by an adjustment in his batting stance, rather than a call from Uncle Angelos.* Alex Ochoa -- UP -- Who knows if he can really play. All the talk drove his trade value through the roof.

BOSTON -- With third baseman Leo Gomez off to a terrible start and the team's offense somewhat sluggish, the Orioles -- whose game here was rained out last night -- are in serious pursuit of Texas Rangers third baseman Dean Palmer.Baseball sources indicated yesterday that the Rangers have asked for outfielder Damon Buford and at least one more player -- possibly minor-league outfielder Alex Ochoa -- in return for Palmer, who hit 19 homers in 93 games last year.Palmer, 26, is right out of the Dave Kingman mold.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Curtis Goodwin was going to dunk. Dunk over Michael Jordan. Dunk over everyone.He raced down the lane after a missed shot.He leaped into the air.He . . ."Missed it," the 5-foot-11 Goodwin lamented. "Off the rim."What happened next is in dispute.According to Goodwin's friend, Damon Buford, Jordan snapped: "You're too out of control, kid. Go sit on the sidelines."Buford wasn't there, mind you."But I heard," Buford said, laughing. "I heard it that night."It was just another Sunday in the Arizona Fall League, just another pickup game with that light-hitting outfielder who drove all the fancy cars.
