Andy Van Slyke, Pittsburgh Pirates: "This is the future of baseball and this should be the future. This game is so different than football ... all of the stadiums shouldn't be the same. A stadium like this is an amazing example of what can happen when a city does something right."

CLEVELAND -- Orioles manager Phil Regan wants to close the gap on the Boston Red Sox to "four or five games by the All-Star break." To do that, he says, the Orioles need two things to happen.No. 1: "We need more wins out of our No. 3 and No. 4 spots in the rotation," Regan said.The Orioles lost the first seven games started by No. 3 starter Ben McDonald this season, but he has pitched better of late, winning two of his past three starts. However, the Orioles have had a terrible time getting any sort of consistency from the No. 4 and No. 5 spots in the rotation.

SEATTLE -- Ken Griffey was in a local hospital recovering from surgery, Randy Johnson was in the Mariners' dugout resting between starts. What an opportunity for the Orioles to end their three-game losing streak.Overcoming another poor start by left-hander Sid Fernandez, the Orioles overpowered the Mariners, 11-4, with 16 hits last night.Shortstop Cal Ripken had four hits, third baseman Jeff Manto mashed a three-run homer and Kevin Bass had a critical pinch-hit single for the Orioles. It was only the second time since May 4 that the Orioles won a game started by a pitcher other than Mike Mussina or Kevin Brown.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- When Andy Van Slyke stepped into a batting cage for the first time as an Oriole yesterday shortly before noon, Elrod Hendricks was the only member of the front office or coaching staff watching him take his swings.Manager Phil Regan was over by the dugout, warming up to throw batting practice in a few minutes. Batting coach Lee May was elsewhere on the field. General manager Roland Hemond was nowhere in sight.Regan made it over in time to watch Van Slyke's next two sets in the cage, but let's just say that there wasn't exactly a crush of management interest.

50 SID FERNANDEZ* His role: That depends entirely on Fernandez and how much his new-found conditioning helps him. When he's at his best, Fernandez can be nasty for hitters, his fastball riding up and his slider breaking in. Phil Regan wants Fernandez to start between Mike Mussina and Ben McDonald in the rotation. When Fernandez is struggling -- and he did in 1994 -- he has trouble pitching six quality innings.* What '95 means to him: A big year, really, for his peace of mind. Fernandez has been told by doctors and trainers and managers and coaches for years that he needs to lose weight, and he did that in the off-season, dropping 40 pounds.
