The Orioles will continue to play a role in the American League East for at least the next three nights, when the Boston Red Sox, the struggling division leaders, visit Memorial Stadium.Blowing two leads and losing three games in the ninth inning over the weekend, the Orioles did their part to keep the Toronto Blue Jays in the race. Now they will rely on three rookie pitchers against Boston.Ben McDonald (7-4, 2.55) will face ex-Oriole Mike Boddicker (15-8, 3.38) in tonight's game (7:35, HTS)

Cal Ripken, who already has established two home run records for his position, is on the verge of yet another milestone.Following last night's 10th-inning tiebreaker, the Orioles' All-Star shortstop needs one more homer to become the second active player to hit 20 or more in nine straight seasons. Philadelphia's Dale Murphy, who has 24 this season, already has reached the plateau.Boston's Tom Brunansky and Dwight Evans started the year with eight consecutive 20-home run seasons, but both will miss the mark in 1990.

It is a common practice in baseball for injured players to go on rehabilitation assignments. Usually they consist of a week or two in the minor leagues just to get the rust out of the system.The Orioles have had more than their share of those projects thiyear, to the point where the situation is reversed. Sometimes the end of the rehab period takes place in the big leagues.For the second straight game the Orioles have just such a case, as Anthony Telford (2-2, 2.70) faces the Toronto Blue Jays tonight (7:35, Ch. 2)

The remote possibility of moving up another notch or two in the standings isn't the only thing occupying the mind of Orioles manager Frank Robinson these days.In keeping with traditional thinking of making a team earn a title, Robinson already is mapping out his pitching rotation for the last three days of the season.The Orioles will host the Toronto Blue Jays in those three games, beginning a week from tonight in Memorial Stadium. It is Robinson's plan to have his three most effective starters ready for those games.

The most important development for the Boston Red Sox tonight could come before the second game of the series against the Orioles at Memorial Stadium.Roger Clemens, who has been sidelined for two weeks, is scheduled to throw in the bullpen before the game. His status will be updated after the workout, and if the righthander is deemed fit, he is likely to start against the Yankees in New York Friday night.Even if he passes tonight's test, Clemens (20-6, 1.98) would get only three more starts in the regular season.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The biggest game in this area last week was documenting the numerous Michael Jordan sightings as the former NBA great attempts to make a conversion to baseball.And since there aren't too many red Corvettes making the rounds in this relatively laid-back town, it wasn't too difficult. The mode of transportation being used by His Airness is hardly conducive to a reclusive lifestyle, but it's not something he's willing to surrender.Don Cooper, the Chicago White Sox's minor-league pitching instructor, found that out during an instructional session before Jordan joined the big-league training camp.

It was an exhibition game and no one won, but the Orioles' Sherman Obando got to test his left hamstring last night.In the first game of his rehabilitation assignment, Obando went 3-for-4 with a triple for the Bowie Baysox, who played to a nine-inning, 2-2 tie with the Rochester Red Wings before 5,275 at Memorial Stadium. The designated hitter had a two-out, run-scoring triple into the right-field gap that broke a 1-1 tie in the third inning."The legs are back to where they were," said Obando, who also ran out an infield single in the ninth inning.

When the Bowie Baysox finally decided to play at Memorial Stadium after construction of their new stadium was delayed, team officials weren't sure how fans would react at the temporary home.More than a month into the Eastern League season, the jury is still out.But a verdict may arrive during this weekend's series with the New Britain Red Sox, as the Baysox's promotion schedule kicks into high gear."This is our first real test," said general manager Keith Lupton. "The Orioles are out of town, the weather has gotten better and we have three promotions."

SARASOTA, Fla. -- If Anthony Telford has it figured right, the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies have given him the best opportunity of his life.Once the brightest pitching prospect in the Orioles' organization, Telford has been the perennial long-shot candidate to make the staff each of the past two years. But both times he came up short and was dispatched to Triple-A Rochester, where he compiled a 24-16 record over two seasons.Having not missed a start in three years (going 38-20 in that stretch in the minor leagues)

Not that long ago, the next four games were considered vital to the Orioles' hopes of winning the AL East.The long weekend series that starts tonight in Toronto (7:35, HTS) will still have a bearing on the race -- but only for the Blue Jays. The Orioles long ago passed out of contention, and their role is reduced to that of spoiler in three remaining series -- this one in the SkyDome, three games at home next week against Boston and the final three games of the season at Memorial Stadium against the Blue Jays.

It's probably convenient that Eli Bashing is the area's principal in-season sport these days. That way, even the most mysterious moves made by the Orioles can be lumped under the heading of economic frugality and attributed to soon-to-be ex-owner Eli Jacobs.However, the most significant decisions that have been made for 1993 are related more to baseball than the bottom line, and should be evaluated as such.One -- replacing Bill Ripken and Mark McLemore with Harold Reynolds at second base -- actually represents a $600,000 gamble on the part of the Orioles.
