Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- Chris Gomez, who will enter his third season as the Orioles' utility man, hit .341 last season (45-for-132) with two home runs and 17 RBIs. The 35-year-old California native broke into the major leagues in 1993 with the Detroit Tigers and has played with six teams. He plays all four infield positions for the Orioles. You were named the Tigers' Rookie of the Year in consecutive seasons. How does that happen? -- I was one of two or three rookies, so ... if you do anything, you win it. All my categories that would have made me not a rookie the next year, I was just under.

Chris Gomez, Orioles utility man Do you think there is a rivalry between the Orioles and Nationals? I don't know how much hype there is between Baltimore and D.C. Until we are both winning a bunch of games, I don't think there is going to be a whole lot of interest above and beyond just a normal series during the year.

The day started with news that Chris Gomez and John Parrish, two well-liked veterans, had been moved to teams fully immersed in pennant races. The Orioles who remained said their goodbyes, left to avoid another late-season swoon without two players who occupied key roles for them at different parts of the season. The sentimentality was pushed aside by the time Daniel Cabrera threw the first pitch against the Seattle Mariners last night, eventually giving way to a cruel reversal that hit the team's most accomplished player the hardest.

Chris Gomez went 4-for-4 and Larry Bigbie had a two-run, tie-breaking single in the sixth inning to give the Orioles a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday. Bigbie was 8-for-53 (.151) this spring before singling off reliever Giavonni Carrara with the bases loaded. Daniel Cabrera, named the Orioles' No. 2 starter, gave up two runs (one earned) and two hits in five innings. Hee-Seop Choi homered off him in the fifth to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. Former Oriole Scott Erickson, the Dodgers' fifth starter this season, allowed one run (none earned)

The new Washington franchise scored five times in the ninth inning off Orioles reliever B.J. Ryan, with Ian Desmond's three-run triple breaking a 5-5 tie, and the Nationals claimed a 9-6 victory yesterday. It was the first time since Sept. 10, 1971, that the Orioles played a team from Washington, D.C. Catcher Gary Bennett tied the game with a one-out single, and Desmond followed with his triple. Terrmel Sledge added a run-scoring single. Chris Gomez drove in David Newhan with a single in the ninth, but Rafael Palmeiro struck out as the potential tying run against former Oriole Hector Carrasco, and Geronimo Gil fouled out. Given a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning, Double-A pitcher Hayden Penn allowed back-to-back homers to Sledge and Brad Wilkerson that moved the Nationals ahead 3-2. The Orioles had received three scoreless innings from Daniel Cabrera and two from Bruce Chen, but Sledge tied the game with a two-run shot off Penn, the organization's minor league Pitcher of the Year.

Three candidates for the fifth starter's job in the Orioles' rotation took turns yesterday watching the Florida Marlins circle the bases in a 13-8 loss. Matt Riley allowed four runs in two innings, Kurt Ainsworth gave up five runs in two innings and Eric DuBose surrendered a three-run homer to Miguel Cabrera. The Orioles sent 10 batters to the plate in the second inning against Florida left-hander Al Leiter, scoring seven times to wipe out an early deficit. Chris Gomez and Tim Raines Jr. had two-run singles and Enrique Wilson followed with a two-run double.

Chris Gomez, Orioles utility infielder As a die-hard Lakers fan, how close do you think the team is to being dominant again? I think they're closer than people would think. Andrew Bynum, their young center, has a chance to be a real stud. Give him a year or two. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Kobe [Bryant] isn't getting any younger. But he still has several good years in him.

When assessing where Ramon Hernandez would hit in the Orioles' lineup all the way back in spring training, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said that he could foresee the catcher batting anywhere from second, to fifth through nine. He never mentioned the cleanup spot. However, Hernandez has thrived in the No. 4 spot since Jay Gibbons went on the disabled list. In four games in the cleanup hole entering last night, Hernandez was 9-for-16 with one homer, four doubles and six RBIs. Hernandez added to those numbers and extended his team-leading RBI total to 46 with a single in the first last night.

David S. writes: "Could you keep us up to date on the middle relievers ... particularly any left-handers that look good during spring training?" If manager Sam Perlozzo wants a third lefty to join Tim Byrdak and Eric DuBose, the battle should come down to nonroster invitees Vic Darensbourg and John Halama. Darensbourg was 1-1 with a 2.82 ERA in 22 games with the Detroit Tigers. Halama, also an eight-year veteran, was 1-4 with a 5.68 ERA in 40 games between the Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals.

It has come to this for the Orioles. One of the biggest cheers they got all afternoon at Camden Yards came after the last out of the top of the third inning, the home team having just given up seven runs. After watching the Oakland Athletics batter Eric DuBose for two long home runs and plenty more, B.J. Surhoff drop a fly ball and Chris Gomez fire an errant throw to compound the misery, the 33,195 in attendance yesterday erupted, giddy that the inning was finally over. The joy was tempered by the fact that were still 6 1/2 more innings to go. The Orioles' 12-3 loss to the A's featured poor pitching and lousy fielding, joined with more failure from the Orioles' offense against the opposition's starting pitcher.

When the Orioles sent Denny Bautista to the Kansas City Royals last June, they knew they were trading a promising pitcher with a great arm and a tendency for wildness. That scouting report pretty much summed up Bautista's first start against his former team since he was dealt for veteran reliever Jason Grimsley. In the Orioles' 3-1 win over the Royals last night at Camden Yards, Bautista, the hard-throwing 24-year-old from the Dominican Republic, held the Orioles down for three innings before losing control - both of the game and his pitches.
