BOWIE -- Frustration was the order of the game for the Bowie Baysox yesterday.They left the bases loaded three times, the last in the ninth inning, and left 11 stranded overall to fall to the Reading Phillies, 4-2, in Eastern League play at Prince George's Stadium.A boisterous crowd of 5,783 -- mostly children from day camps -- had thinned considerably after a 43-minute rain delay interceded with the bases full and one out in the bottom of the ninth.When play resumed, left-hander Robert Dodd entered to face Chris Kirgan, who popped out. Then, Keith Troutman finished off Bowie (39-37)

The Bowie Baysox can't escape the Eastern League's Southern Division basement because they can't win away from Prince George's Stadium."There is a completely different attitude at home than on the road," said Baysox manager Tim Blackwell. "They're comfortable here."The players do basically the same things on the road, so it's hard to understand. Of course, the clubhouses aren't as nice. Maybe that has something to do with it."The Baysox have been out of last place one day since April 24.They still have not won two straight games on the road this season.

The Bowie Baysox enjoyed a solid 1997 season with better attendance, far better results on the field and a playoff appearance.But, somehow, it wasn't enough.Emerging from spring training, the Baysox were loaded with more prospects than any club in the Oriole farm system.But many of the prospects were injured or flopped, and the club limped into postseason play with a makeshift roster that included a slew of older, soon-to-be free-agent pitchers.A rash of injuries that limited speedy Eugene Kingsale to 13 games changed the face of the Bowie offense, and top pitching hopefuls Sidney Ponson (elbow problems)

BOWIE -- The pre-game sky was bright with fireworks to celebrate the season opener. Then the Bowie Baysox bombed away on their own last night.The Baysox clubbed three home runs in the first three innings to back left-hander John O'Donoghue and went on to romp past the Trenton Thunder, 10-1, in a Double-A Eastern League game.O'Donoghue returned to the Orioles' organization with a flourish after a year with Albuquerque, the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate.He allowed only one hit -- a leadoff double in the fourth by Donnie TC Sadler -- and threw only 73 pitches during his six innings.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Chris Fussell looks around the clubhouse and sees the numbers. Manager Ray Miller easily could pull 12 names and complete his staff, but there's always room for a little competition. And Fussell intends to engage in his share.On paper, there's no room for Fussell on the major-league roster. If everything falls into place, the rotation will consist of Opening Day starter Mike Mussina, Scott Erickson, Juan Guzman, Scott Kamieniecki and Sidney Ponson.The bullpen will include right-handers Mike Timlin, Heathcliff Slocumb, Mike Fetters and Ricky Bones, and left-handers Jesse Orosco, Arthur Rhodes and Doug Johns.

Faced with an off-season of renovation and accompanying uncertainty, the Orioles made a declarative statement last night in a nothing game at Fenway Park.This season has literally become a loss.A peach-fuzz lineup playing behind September surprise Chris Fussell (0-1) suffered the club's sixth consecutive loss, an 8-3 trouncing by the Boston Red Sox.Fussell lasted only five outs and his Triple-A backing committed four errors. The grotesque fallout guaranteed the 78-82 Orioles their first losing season since 1995 and their most losses since suffering 95 in 1991.

Sometimes, the level at which a player is performing can mean little.Take the case of Chris Fussell, Orioles farmhand.With Double-A Bowie last season and this, one of the system's top-rated pitchers compiled an astonishing 4-15 record and just couldn't seem to win. Included was a Baysox-record eight straight losses.But in his first stint at Triple-A, Fussell is unbeaten in five starts, has pitched well in all but one and is demonstrating why Baseball America ranked him the fourth best overall Orioles prospect.

BOWIE -- On the field, things can only improve. Off the field, the improvements are mainly cosmetic.That is the outlook for the Double-A Bowie Baysox, who enter their third full season at Prince George's Stadium with a roster buttressed by legitimate prospects and a home park that has become a minor-league showplace.Last summer was a drag for the Baysox, who suffered from a shortage of quality pitching and team speed and stumbled to a 54-88 record, by far the worst in their four-year Eastern League history.
