BOWIE -- The stifling heat seemed a good excuse for Calvin Pickering to hunker down inside the air-conditioned clubhouse at Bowie earlier this week. Manager Joe Ferguson had called off batting practice, a generous act for a team in danger of missing the Eastern League playoffs. And judging by Pickering's statistics this year, the one thing he didn't need was more work.He had an out, but chose not to take it. Pickering grabbed a bat and headed for the cage, ripping line drives in every direction and helping to retrieve the balls that littered the outfield.

Before I get into this week's column, I'm taking a minute to fill out an All-Star ballot at mlb.com, with some interesting results. After three weeks of the season, you'd be hard-pressed to find a first baseman worthy of representing the AL at this year's game in Detroit. Pretty sad. Chicago's Paul Konerko (seven HRs, .236 average) and Texas' Mark Texeira (five HRs, .229 average) both have big power numbers. But in a surprise move, I'm going with Toronto's Eric Hinske, who's hitting a respectable .290 with three HRs, 13 RBIs and a couple of steals.

Tim DeCinces, Calvin Pickering and Ryan Minor each had run-scoring doubles as the Delmarva Shorebirds edged the Hagerstown Suns, 7-6, yesterday in a Single-A South Atlantic League game in Salisbury.Shorebirds starter Brian Falkenborg (4-4) had allowed just one run over seven innings before being relieved by Josh Towers with one out and the bases loaded in the eighth.But three more runs were added to Falkenborg's line when Hagerstown's Luis Lopez, the league's top hitter at .388, then hit a grand slam off Towers to pull the Suns within 7-6.But Towers went on to record his first save of the season by getting the final five outs of the game.

Last Oct. 3, with the Orioles playing their final home game at Camden Yards, Jeff Wilson became engaged to his fiancee, Susan. Then an Arizona Diamondbacks farmhand, Wilson didn't know that he was soon to become Orioles property. "The mascot came by and gave her two dozen roses and everything," said the Bowie Baysox left-hander, who ranks seventh in the Double-A Eastern League with a 2.72 ERA. "Two months after that, the Orioles took me in the Rule 5 draft. It was ironic, almost eerie."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles did most of their damage offensively yesterday when they were doing the very least.Four consecutive walks by Florida Marlins left-hander Armando Almanza in the fifth inning followed leadoff singles by B. J. Surhoff and Lenny Webster and helped the Orioles to a 6-1 victory in their home exhibition opener.The game was scoreless when Almanza entered and shook up the proceedings. A balk moved Surhoff to second, and Webster's single gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead.
