FORT MYERS, Fla. - Brook Fordyce and Eddy Garabito each drove in two runs during a four-run fourth inning, and Pat Hentgen turned in his best outing in the Orioles' 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins yesterday. Hentgen allowed one run over six innings, striking out five. The Orioles loaded the bases with none out in the fourth, but the next two batters struck out before Fordyce looped a single over shortstop Cristian Guzman. Garabito, who also reached on an infield hit and double, drilled a triple into right-center field for a 4-0 lead.

Chris Richard -- UP -- Rookie first baseman homered twice, had six RBIs and came within two feet of hitting for the cycle Sunday in Cleveland. Former understudy to Mark McGwire has been a pleasant offensive surprise; finding him a position remains a challenge. Injury intrigue -- DOWN -- Scott Erickson was described as suffering elbow "inflammation" just before he underwent ligament replacement surgery. Now, the club says Albert Belle's hip is "day-to-day." Whatever. Ryan Kohlmeier -- EVEN -- Last month, the rookie closer resembled Goose Gossage.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Orioles fell out of the running for Ivan Rodriguez last month when the Florida Marlins tripped them with a surprising $10 million offer to the free-agent catcher. Their quest for a cleanup hitter, someone who makes opposing managers nervous instead of his own, would have to continue. So, too, would their close scrutiny of the position. "If we can upgrade," said vice president of baseball operations Mike Flanagan, "we'll upgrade." With Syd Thrift no longer in the front office, holdovers Geronimo Gil and Brook Fordyce - players he acquired in waiver-deadline trades - lost their most avid supporter.

Many Orioles make extra effort for fans In last week's letters to the sports editor, one attendee to a recent Orioles game groused that the players were indifferent and inaccessible to their party during a rain delay ("O's, Blue Jays didn't have time for the fans," June 22). My 7-year-old son, Joey, and I respectfully and heartily disagree, and we have the proof as to why. Before several games and during a couple of rain delays this year, Joey has gotten autographs from Pat Hentgen, David Segui, Luis Matos, Jerry Hairston and Jeff Conine, as well as several from visiting teams' players.

Written into the Orioles' lineup as the designated hitter last night, Marty Cordova was a late scratch because of a stiff right elbow that will require a CT scan today. The problem surfaced as Cordova swung the bat in Monday's game. He hoped that the stiffness would subside enough to allow him to play, but interim manager Sam Perlozzo had to move Melvin Mora from shortstop to left field and make B.J. Surhoff the designated hitter. Deivi Cruz, who would have been on the bench again while mired in a 5-for-35 slump, replaced Mora at short and went 0-for-4.

CLEVELAND - Pitcher Omar Daal signed with the Orioles three months ago because he wanted to be a starter. Other teams couldn't make that promise. He was certain the Orioles would allow it, even covet it, since he provided a much-needed left-handed presence in their rotation. Daal is scheduled to make his next start on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Camden Yards. Nothing he has done so far changes his assignment. But that doesn't mean he should get too comfortable with his role.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - It took until the seventh game of the Orioles' exhibition schedule for Brook Fordyce to get his name into the scorebook. Now he's ready to turn the page on his health mystery. Fordyce went 0-for-2 and was hit by a pitch as the starting catcher in yesterday's 10-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox. He wasn't cleared to play during the first week because of an infection that caused the glands in his throat to swell. "That was the only symptom I had," said Fordyce, who hit into a double play with the bases loaded and none out, and popped to first.

VIERA, Fla. - Beau Hale, the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2000, will have arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder and might not pitch this season. Hale underwent a magnetic resonance imaging test on the shoulder last week, and was examined Sunday by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Charles Silberstein at the minor-league complex in Sarasota, Fla. No date has been announced for the surgery, which executive vice president Jim Beattie described as "exploratory." "They saw something on the MRI and they want to take a look and see what it is," Beattie said.

There are piles of debris amid the brick and wrought iron at Camden Yards today. The Orioles blew up their disappointing team with a pair of trades last night, dealing three veterans for six young players, including four pitchers. In all, they have traded four veterans for 10 younger players since Friday afternoon, sending a signal as obvious as it is stunning: Not only have they given up on this season, but they're not planning on winning next season, either. They're counting on a farm system suddenly overflowing with young pitchers to put them back on the map in several years - but not any time before that.

The Orioles can cross another name off their arbitration list. The club has reached agreement with pitcher Sidney Ponson on a one-year deal worth $4.25 million. It became official during the afternoon once Ponson's agent, Barry Praver, finished working on some language in the contract. Ponson's hearing was scheduled for Tuesday in St. Petersburg, Fla., and he represented the biggest challenge to the Orioles because of the gap in exchanged salary figures. Ponson sought $4.75 million while the team countered at $3.9.
