ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Baltimore Orioles are steering toward an April 22 debut for right-hander Ben McDonald, who took another step yesterday in his recovery from elbow soreness.McDonald threw on the side for 18 minutes at Arlington Stadium, reporting no pain as he used his breaking ball for the first time since he was sidelined with a strained flexor muscle.If all continues to go well, he will throw again Sunday and pitch in a minor-league game Wednesday, which could set him up for his first regular-season start against the Chicago White Sox at the new Comiskey Park five days later.

One day this month, a man walked into a fast-food restaurant on Reisterstown Road, near the Plaza, and asked to speak to the manager. "I ordered a bacon-cheeseburger in here last night and it made me sick," the man said loudly."

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It was perfect Dave Johnson weather or at least that's what the Texas Rangers must have been muttering to themselves Friday night as fly ball after long fly ball died on the warning track at Arlington Stadium.The wind was blowing in from all fields and nothing was going out. The Rangers hit the ball hard enough to win but remained winless. The kid from Middle River must have had it set on climate control.Johnson knows what everyone is thinking. He's getting used to this kind of thing.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nolan Ryan continues to go where no man has gone before, throwing his seventh career no-hitter, three more than any other pitcher in baseball history.Ryan, extending a record he set almost 10 years ago, thrilled a crowd of 33,439 and a national television audience in Canada by holding the Toronto Blue Jays hitless in the Texas Rangers' 3-0 victory last night at Arlington Stadium.That it came at Arlington Stadium, on Arlington Appreciation Night, made this no-hitter stand out from the others.

Dave Johnson naturally frets.Almost eight years in the minor leagues taught him never to take anything for granted, so when the Baltimore Orioles' Opening Day start went first to Ben McDonald, then to Jeff Ballard, a disappointed Johnson took it in stride.The team's biggest winner last year, finishing 13-9, Baltimore native Johnson coveted pitching the final opener at Memorial Stadium based on his performance last season.But he had a mediocre spring, and manager Frank Robinson decided to wait to unveil the right-hander.

ARLINGTON, Tex. -- There was a tornado watch in effect last night in the vicinity of Arlington Stadium, but it apparently will take more than the threat of a natural disaster to keep the Orioles from beating up regularly on the Texas Rangers.For whatever reason, this is one opponent the Orioles seem to dominate in good times and bad. They withstood the 90-degree nighttime temperature to parlay three home runs and another strong performance by right-hander Ben McDonald into a 5-1 victory.The head-to-head numbers are staggering.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The "if" word has failed the Rangers once again. As in "if Nolan Ryan stays healthy. . ."At age 46, and after his most pain-free spring training in years, we now know "if" was still asking too much, as it had been at age 45 and 44. The right arm remains a miracle of genetics, but time and physical stress continue to take a toll elsewhere.Which brings us to yesterday morning, when Nolan Ryan awoke after a rough night at the ballpark against the Orioles and discovered he was unable to walk due to a locked right knee.

Arlington, Texas -- The day he arrived at Twin Lakes Park, Fernando Valenzuela might have been the only one who truly believed that this day would come. He was just another washed-up pitcher with a dream, the supply of which far exceeds the demand in the big-bucks world of big-league baseball.That afternoon in Sarasota, Fla., he threw a few tentative pitches from the practice mound, rolling his eyes skyward with each delivery as he did in his glory days. No one will admit it now, but there were a lot of other people rolling their eyes that day, too.Valenzuela will elicit a different response tonight -- perhaps a standing ovation -- when he takes the mound at Arlington Stadium to face the Texas Rangers in his first major-league start since 1991.
