Orioles pitcher Willis Roberts spoke yesterday of ending his slump without needing to make any adjustments. Manager Mike Hargrove, lending his support, said Roberts would benefit from throwing more innings rather than having the club shy away from using him. That becomes a little more difficult with Roberts on the disabled list. The Orioles announced the roster move about an hour before their game against the Philadelphia Phillies, revealing that Roberts had a sprained ligament in his right elbow.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The final play before the All-Star break was a broken-bat, in-between bouncer that left the entire Orioles infield discombobulated and helpless as the Oakland Athletics scored the winning run. In other words, it was a perfectly fitting end to the first half. With the tension of a scoreless, ninth-inning tie permeating Network Associates Coliseum, Orioles reliever Hector Carrasco made a costly, split-second decision on a little tapper from Ramon Hernandez, and Mark Ellis scored from third, giving Oakland a 1-0 victory.

Not to be overlooked in the excitement of Sunday's brawl between the White Sox and the Royals over a Chicago pitcher hitting Kansas City's Miguel Olivo and subsequent ejections that included excitable White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was Guillen's tacit admission that he orders his pitchers to throw at batters. As others have already noted, it's hardly a secret that major league managers order retaliation, but leave it to Guillen to admit it. He was trying to make the point that he did not order pitcher D.J. Carrasco to hit Olivo by pointing out it was the wrong time (bases were loaded)

SEATTLE - With injuries to Brian Roberts and B.J. Surhoff leaving their bench woefully short, the Orioles made a roster move after last night's game, sending Rick Bauer to Triple-A Ottawa to make room for left-handed hitter Jack Cust. The Orioles dropped to 11 pitchers, figuring the bullpen is well rested after last night's complete game by Sidney Ponson against the Seattle Mariners. Cust was batting .283 with eight home runs and 46 RBIs for Ottawa. This will be his second regular-season stint with the Orioles since they acquired him from the Colorado Rockies for Chris Richard on March 11. Roberts was hoping his back would feel better yesterday, but it didn't, so the Orioles sent him to see Mariners orthopedist Larry Pedegana.

The leading rider at the Pimlico Race Course spring meeting will not be decided until the last day, and Sheldon Russell, who sits atop the standings, will not even be at the track at the end of today's card to see whether he keeps the top spot. After 35 live racing days, Russell has 28 victories, three more than Xavier Perez. Apprentice Victor Carrasco rode three winners Friday to move into third place with 24 victories. "I have ridden some good horses this meet and am fortunate to be in the position to be ahead with one day to go," said Russell, who was limited to four mounts Friday because rain forced four races off the turf.

After missing all three games against the Kansas City Royals, Sammy Sosa remained out of the Orioles' lineup last night, and the club still doesn't know when he'll return. Sosa made another visit yesterday to the team's podiatrist, Dr. Jay LeBow, who is treating an abscess on the bottom of the outfielder's left foot. "It's improving, but the doctors keep working on it, trying to see what's causing it," head trainer Richie Bancells said. Sosa played in the Orioles' first 27 games before becoming a late scratch Friday night.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Melvin Mora left for his first All-Star Game yesterday without the mantle he has been carrying for the past six weeks as the American League's leading hitter. Mora went 0-for-4 in the Orioles' 1-0 loss to the Oakland Athletics, dropping his average to .349. Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki passed Mora for the lead, going 3-for-4 to raise his average to .352. The Orioles haven't had a batting leader at the All-Star break since Cal Ripken was batting .348 in 1991. The best mark for an Oriole at the break was Roberto Alomar at .352 in 1996.

TAMPA, Fla. -- This is the way a future closer should develop. With a manager experienced at handling young pitchers. With a pitching coach who can give him extra attention. With a team that can afford him time to grow.Like so many others with the Orioles last season, Armando Benitez was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Club officials projected him as the closer by June, when in fact he still belonged in the minor leagues.Now, with Davey Johnson as manager and Pat Dobson as pitching coach, his development can begin in earnest.
