CHICAGO -- The Orioles can expect to have their patience tested tonight (8:35, HTS).Knuckleballer Charlie Hough (0-0, 4.50) will make his first start for the Chicago White Sox in the final game of the series. His opponent will be Jeff Ballard (0-1, 6.00), making his third start of the season.The key to success against Hough has always been the ability to play the waiting game. Overly aggressive hitters have a tendency to get themselves into trouble against a pitch as unpredictable as the knuckleball.

CHICAGO -- They haven't been able to establish a No. 1 starter all year, but this weekend the Orioles will unveil their new Big Three.Ben McDonald, Bob Milacki and Mike Mussina are the scheduled pitchers against the White Sox. The Orioles would like nothing better than to have the three righthanders give an indication they can establish themselves as the cornerstone of a starting rotation.The weekend will present some interesting contrasts. McDonald and Mussina were the No. 1 draft choices for the Orioles the last two years, but they took different routes to the situation they face this weekend.

There was the news conference when he first signed, and the game Hagerstown played last summer after an Orioles contest, but, other than that, the new Orioles pitcher had not spent any time in Baltimore.Even when the call came last week that the Orioles wanted him, it was in Chicago, not Baltimore.But the night has finally come for Mike Mussina to make his Memorial Stadium debut, on this, the 29th to last game in the stadium that has been home to the Orioles since 1954. It will come against the same White Sox Mussina faced last Sunday in his major-league debut.

CHICAGO -- Frank Robinson trotted out a "new look" lineup in last night's 5-1 victory over the White Sox, starting all five of the lefthanded hitters he had available.Glenn Davis was missing for the second straight night, but he managed to hit his fourth home run in his last eight games as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning.In addition to regular designated hitter Sam Horn (who struck out all three times he batted), outfielders Brady Anderson and Joe Orsulak, catcher Ernie Whitt and second baseman Juan Bell swung from the left side against knuckleballer Charlie Hough (0-1)

The Orioles won a game last night but got a scare that will keep them wondering until today whether they lost something more important.Relief ace Gregg Olson, who had just come in to pitch the ninth inning of the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Chicago White Sox, left the game after throwing five pitches. He winced after a strike that made the count 3-2 on Lance Johnson and, after an additional practice pitch, left the mound in obvious discomfort.After Olson's departure, Todd Frohwirth was summoned.
