First he picked off Barry Bonnell. Then he picked off Dave Collins. To complete the inning, he picked off Willie Upshaw.Tippy Martinez had a solid 10-year career as a left-handed reliever for the Orioles, but that moment on Aug. 24, 1983, -- when he picked off three Toronto Blue Jays in one inning -- defined it."Seems like everybody was there that night," Martinez said. "I hear about it even today. That's how I'm remembered. Which is OK."Moments later, Lenn Sakata, in real life an infielder but who was, of all things, the catcher, hit a game-winning home run, capping a couple of the most bizarre innings in Orioles history.

In 1970, one of Barbara Bonnell's favorite art galleries purchased a set of 12 framed, antique lithographs - one for each month of the year - for a client who, as it turned out, didn't want them after all. The gallery called Bonnell, then of Guilford, to see if she would be interested in buying them. She and her husband, Robert Bonnell Jr., paid $2,500 for the set, which dates to 1802. On Wednesday, Bonnell, 82, now a resident of Roland Park Place and chair of its residents' association, brought the August lithograph, of a woman and her child, downstairs to the dining room to get it appraised at a "treasure hunting" event sponsored by the retirement community and modeled after "Antiques Roadshow" on TV. Bonnell guessed that the set, made in Paris, France, would be worth about $3,000 now. She was wrong.
