OAKLAND, Calif. -- Increasingly impatient with a four-week free fall that threatens to bury them before June, the Orioles have discussed a trade that would send second baseman Roberto Alomar and possibly first baseman Rafael Palmeiro to the New York Mets for a package including switch-hitting second baseman Carlos Baerga, club sources confirmed.Talks have been ongoing for about a week but are not close to the critical stage, according to a club source familiar with the discussions.The Orioles apparently would include Palmeiro if the Mets part with first baseman John Olerud and pitcher Dave Mlicki.

The Orioles hit into a triple play for the 14th time in their history last night in the sixth inning.With the bases loaded and none out, Brady Anderson flied out to Kenny Lofton in left-center and Lofton then threw to the plate to get Leo Gomez, who had tagged at third.Cleveland catcher Sandy Alomar then threw to second baseman Carlos Baerga as Jeff Tackett was hung up between first and second.Baerga was not at the bag and Tackett made it to second, but Tim Hulett was caught between second and third, and Baerga fired to third baseman Jim Thome to retire Hulett and end the inning.

CLEVELAND -- Move over Ben McDonald, you have company.The big right-hander isn't the only pitcher on the Orioles' staff suffering from a lack of run support. A good case can also be made for Fernando Valenzuela, who had another strong outing yesterday but came out on the short end of a 3-0 score against the Indians."The name of this game is winning, not losing," said Valenzuela who has pitched much better than his record would indicate. In his past 10 starts, the left-hander has allowed three runs or less seven times, but is 2-5 with three no-decisions to show for it."

Quote: "Walk [Mark] McGwire with nobody on, that's a legend. Jim Poole and Dusty Baker will be trivia, and McGwire will be the legend. Sorry, Dusty." -- Giants pitcher Orel HershiserIt's a fact: Attendance was so high that the Mets ran out of children's jerseys they were giving away.Who's hot: The Mets' Carlos Baerga, subject of trade talks involving the Orioles, had three hits,including his fourth homer, to raise his average to a season-high .280. He is hitting .355 in May.Who's not: The Rockies' Ellis Burks struck out four times, extending his slump to 1-for-31.

CLEVELAND -- Catcher Jeff Tackett thought it was a good pitch. Manager John Oates said he had no quarrel with the selection.Pitcher Mike Mussina, who threw the ball and suffered the consequences, disagreed with both.The Orioles had just suffered another frustrating one-run loss, a 2-1 decision to the lowly Cleveland Indians that was decided in the ninth inning. Mussina had taken a three-hit shutout into that last inning and was unforgiving of himself that the Indians added four more hits while scoring two runs in their final at-bat.
