- Left-hander Joe Saunders was not the popular choice to get the Orioles' first postseason start in 15 years and to try and guide the club back to Baltimore for its first home playoff contest since Game 6 of the 1997 American League Championship Series. Saunders has been with the Orioles for barely a month. The 31-year-old veteran had never won a playoff game in four previous attempts. And he's been on the ugly side of awful for most of his career against the Texas Rangers, including a dismal 0-6 record and a 9.38 ERA in his starts at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

ARLINGTON, Texas - As a rookie, Rusty Greer put himself in the major-league record books. He caught the last out of a perfect game. A line drive to center field landed in his glove to seal Kenny Rogers' perfect game on July 28, 1994, one of the highlight moments of the Texas Rangers' first season at The Ballpark in Arlington. It was more than a Rangers highlight. It was one of many for Major League Baseball in 1994, one of the sport's most extraordinary seasons. In 1994, baseball had record pursuits and tight pennant chases.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tom Henke, 36, might have thrown his last major-league pitch last night.The Texas Rangers reliever said he is contemplating retirement. He is going home to Missouri today fully expecting a strike."If we do go out, maybe I don't want to come back," he said. "I'm not real happy right now. I don't want to waste people's money. I don't want to waste the fans' enthusiasm by not pitching well."Henke's comments came a few minutes after he had served up a game-losing homer to Seattle's Mike Blowers in the Rangers' 3-2 defeat to the Mariners at The Ballpark in Arlington.

NAMING pro sports stadiums and teams is a screw-loose activity, as recent events in Baltimore make clear.First we were saddled with "Oriole Park at Camden Yards," a compromise that satisfied former Orioles owner Eli Jacobs and Gov. William Donald Schaefer -- but no one else. (Shouldn't it be changed to Camden Yards, now that Mr. Jacobs is out of the picture?)Then came the Rhinos and the Bombers. Both are absurd, the latter barely edging out the former in appropriateness.But Baltimore isn't alone.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Heading into last night's game against the Texas Rangers at The Ballpark in Arlington, Orioles manager Johnny Oates had barely used his bench.Tim Hulett started one game and was used once as a pinch hitter. Damon Buford was used once as a pinch runner, and Jeff Tackett as a defensive replacement. Leo Gomez and Lonnie Smith awaited their first action. Gomez's came only after Chris Sabo was ejected for arguing a called third-strike call in the fifth last night.Playing for the first time, Jack Voigt started at designated hitter in place of Harold Baines, who rested against Texas left-hander Kenny Rogers.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Cal Ripken's farewell tour made a poignant stop yesterday within his own clubhouse. In the most novel and perhaps most compelling gesture Ripken has received from any of the four organizations that have feted him, the Texas Rangers retired the Iron Man's locker inside the visitors' clubhouse at The Ballpark in Arlington - an honor thought to be unprecedented in the game. Rangers players Ivan Rodriguez, Alex Rodriguez and Ripken's former teammate, Rafael Palmeiro, attended along with Rangers general manager Doug Melvin and former Orioles and Rangers manager Johnny Oates.

DALLAS - Even given a day to digest the Texas Rangers' 10-year, $252 million signing of free-agent shortstop Alex Rodriguez, baseball's salary structure still suffered from acute indigestion. Early Monday morning, Rangers owner Tom Hicks wrested away the sport's most talented player in a manner that has riled the game's power structure and added another chapter to agent Scott Boras' list of negotiating accomplishments. Less certain is whether Rodriguez becomes only the second of the past 11 players to be anointed as highest-paid to subsequently play for a world champion.

For the second time in two starts, Orioles catcher Lenny Webster had to leave a game early because of injury. Last night, he suffered a strained tendon in his right ankle in the fourth inning while falling backward to avoid a tight pitch from Cleveland Indians starter Dwight Gooden.Webster grimaced as he bent forward at the waist, then limped off the field with trainer Richie Bancells. He is listed as day-to-day.Charles Johnson, who had started the previous five games, struck out while completing Webster's at-bat and took over behind the plate.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Utility player Jeff Reboulet was not part of the new-look Orioles lineup. He wasn't even a consideration. But after the club managed just two runs through 11 innings last night, he became a hero.Reboulet, who entered the game as a late-inning replacement for shortstop Mike Bordick, slapped an RBI single down the right-field line with one out in the top of the 12th inning to propel the Orioles to a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers and complete a three-game sweep at The Ballpark in Arlington.
