WASHINGTON - With ceremony befitting an inauguration, Washington grandly welcomed back a lost piece of itself last night as baseball returned for the first time in 33 seasons to the same stadium it had abruptly abandoned. On a nostalgia-rich evening, the city began a new chapter to its baseball story with a 5-3 victory. The previous chapter had ended chaotically when fans rushed the field with two outs in the ninth inning and forced the Washington Senators to forfeit their final game in 1971.

WASHINGTON -- The Orioles had clinched the American League East title that afternoon before they even took the field at RFK Stadium.A young catcher was fidgeting in the Orioles bullpen when he got the call to run in and pinch hit against Washington Senators starter Dick Bosman in the ninth inning.It was John Oates."I was sprinting to the dugout, and my heart was beating so fast I didn't have any time to think," said Oates. "Bosman was going for his 16th or 17th win, and they were leading by a run."

SEATTLE -- The veteran Cleveland Indians right-hander who barely battled his way into the bullpen to make the team out of spring training, stood on the mound 20 years ago today one strike away from making history.Dick Bosman threw a fastball away and the Oakland Athletics' Bill North swung and missed.The Cleveland fans went berserk, but all Bosman, now the Orioles pitching coach, could hear was the screaming of the speedy left fielder who had made his way to the mound in a hurry."You deserve it," John Lowenstein hollered in Bosman's ear. "You deserve it. You deserve it. You deserve it."

For the Orioles' pitching staff, the quest for a higher level begins today by going back to square one.A total of 20 pitchers, 14 on the roster and six invitees, were scheduled to begin workouts this morning at the club's Twin Lakes Park facility in Sarasota, Fla. The early days will be devoted to basics before pitching coach Dick Bosman starts developing a staff he hopes, and expects, to be better than the one that helped the Orioles win 89 games last...

This is how badly things are going for pitcher Mike Oquist: The ceiling tiles at Seattle's Kingdome didn't begin falling until after he got belted around by the Mariners in the opening game of their series with the Orioles.The rest of the games were postponed because the facility was deemed unsafe until repairs could be made. But not in time to spare Oquist, who must feel as though the roof is caving in each time he takes the mound.There was Tuesday's miserable showing against the Cleveland Indians, when he lasted 2 2/3 innings and was charged with five runs in a 9-2 loss.

CLEVELAND -- Mark Eichhorn shut out the Cleveland Indians for 4 2/3 innings Wednesday night to earn his third victory of a seven-game road trip that concluded last night.But the throws he took most pride in didn't go to the plate, they went to first base. Eichhorn threw over to first seven times, keeping Kenny Lofton from stealing second in the ninth inning of the Orioles' 7-6, 10-inning victory.Lofton, who led off with a bunt single, then was erased when Omar Vizquel grounded into a double play, one of five on the night for the Orioles, including three with Eichhorn on the mound.

There's an old sports axiom that says a team never looks as good as when it's winning and never as bad as when it's losing.That can be custom tailored to fit individual players, and Ben McDonald believes it fits him perfectly right now.McDonald, who has dropped his past two starts after beating the rest of baseball to seven wins, says he wasn't the dominating pitcher that his gaudy start would imply.And now that he has come back to earth, in a sense, McDonald maintains that he is not reeling either.

DETROIT -- Tony Phillips had just finished talking about Mike Mussina. "By the way, that's Mr. Mussina to me," the Detroit left fielder said. "Not too many people I call 'Mr.' But he's Mr. Mussina, as far as I'm concerned."Phillips also spoke of "Mr. Clemens" (Roger) and "Mr. Johnson" (Randy), but Mussina didn't throw as hard as either of those pitchers yesterday. Heck, he didn't even throw as hard as the old Mike Mussina.All he did on this gorgeous spring afternoon was combine his ability and intelligence in a way he never had before.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- For Sid Fernandez, the best thing about his first appearance with the Orioles is that it's behind him."His control wasn't sharp," said manager Johnny Oates. "He threw some good pitches and some bad pitches -- he just got his first appearance out of the way."Fernandez viewed his effort in much the same way."If this was my regular spring training [outing], I wouldn't accept it," he said after giving up four runs and four hits in two innings, as the New York Yankees beat the Orioles, 9-7, last night.

Dick Bosman plans to be a hands-on pitching coach with the Baltimore Orioles . . . starting immediately.As he begins to address one of the sixth-place team's biggest deficiencies last season -- lack of quality performances from the starting staff -- Bosman said yesterday that he would go to Puerto Rico in December to work with prospect Arthur Rhodes and that he also hoped to visit Ben McDonald in Louisiana for some up-close-and-personal treatment.Bosman, who replaced Al Jackson in the position last week, has started refining the pickoff move of closer Gregg Olson, who spent a week with the Orioles' Florida Instructional League team in Sarasota.

CLEVELAND -- Pitching coach Dick Bosman is bullish on th future of the Orioles' pitching staff, even if the makeup of the 1993 club is not yet known.The upcoming expansion draft and the uncertain contract status of veteran pitchers Rick Sutcliffe and Craig Lefferts might be unsettling, but the youthful nucleus of the club's starting rotation isn't going anywhere -- except in the right direction."

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- When Jamie Moyer got walloped in his first spring training appearance the other day, you would expect that a small alarm sounded in the Orioles' management bunker. You would expect.A thirtysomething pitcher coming off a comeback season doesn't usually command much management confidence until he proves that his performance wasn't a one-year wonder. Baseball doesn't trust a brief track record; the example of Jeff Ballard and countless others validates such skepticism.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- If the Orioles are going to get back into the American League's Eastern Division race, they're going to have to do it without Gregg Olson.Nobody is yet willing to write off the ace reliever for the rest of the season, but it's become obvious he won't be a factor for at least another few weeks. And logic suggests there is a real possibility Olson could be shut down if the Orioles aren't any closer to the lead in two weeks than they are today.That is not a scenario Olson is willing to accept at this point.
