HARRISBURG, Pa. -- They have been victimized often by left-handed pitching this season, but last night the Bowie Baysox gained some revenge at wind-swept RiverSide Stadium.With Harrisburg's Neil Weber searching for the plate in vain, the Baysox took control in the fifth inning and went on to a 7-3 win to even their Eastern League playoff series at one win each.The best-of-five Southern Division title showdown will shift to Prince George's Stadium for the next two nights.Weber threw 111 pitches and went to 11 three-ball counts in 4 1/3 innings, and the Baysox capitalized for a three-run fifth to knock him out.Weber beat Bowie three times during the regular season while recording a 1.03 ERA.Dave Dellucci hit homers to right and center field against Weber and Scott Mitchell, respectively, to highlight Bowie's 10-hit attack.

In late June, the Philadelphia Phillies visited Baltimore for what looked like the farewell tour of manager Charlie Manuel. The Phillies had lost 13 of 16 and were fresh off a disastrous Boston trip in which starter Brett Myers had been arrested for allegedly hitting his wife in the face one morning, then inexplicably pitched the next day. Three days later, Myers was granted a leave of absence, and it was Manuel, the affable baseball lifer with the...

Before Dave Dellucci would speak with a group of reporters in front of his locker yesterday, he politely asked for a few seconds to watch the week's highlights on one of the clubhouse televisions. It would be the first time he got to see the replay of Thursday's diving catch, which ended with him skidding across the warning track and leaving some of the skin from his right forearm on it.Dellucci was intent on savoring every last moment of his four-week stay in the majors. Yesterday, the rookie outfielder was sent back down to Double-A Bowie to make room for newly acquired Geronimo Berroa.

Getting McNair a plus for Baltimore I want to let the citizens of Baltimore know how fortunate they are to have Steve McNair coming to their city. He is truly the toughest quarterback I have ever seen, often playing with injuries that would force many men to the training room. He does his job and never wants to be in the spotlight. He has been so involved with community activities, and yet he never seeks recognition. He is the kind of individual you hope your son grows up to become. The business side of the NFL is truly the dark side when a team is unable to keep a McNair, Derrick Mason or Samari Rolle in the same uniform for his entire career.

David Cone sat in the New York Yankees' dugout with his hand covering his face. His manager had better reason to hide.Joe Torre made a decision in the seventh inning last night that surely was destined to make headlines in today's New York tabloids.He could have allowed reliever Ramiro Mendoza to pitch to Orioles rookie Dave Dellucci with two runners on, two outs and the Yankees leading 5-3. He could have dared a 23-year-old fresh out of Double-A Bowie to produce in the clutch, before a sellout crowd, before his time.

MILWAUKEE -- Dave Dellucci's first reaction was disbelief, then exhilaration, then a strong urge to phone Baton Rouge, La., to ignite a celebration.By his own admission, Dellucci is still unsure what brought him to the Orioles almost four weeks ago. But after a memorable offensive display during yesterday's 9-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers, he knows what's keeping him here.Dellucci made the most of his first start in right field by producing a second-inning single and a third-inning home run off Brewers starter Cal Eldred, then later contributed what could have become a historic catch in support of Mike Mussina.

First, Dave Dellucci saw the lineup card, which had him listed as the Orioles' designated hitter. Three days after being shocked to learn his contract had been purchased from Double-A Bowie, he would be taking his first major-league swings against former Cy Young Award winner David Cone.Then, as Dellucci turned the corner, he noticed that someone had draped a long piece of rope inside his locker. It wasn't for hanging himself, though a young player might consider drastic measures to avoid facing Cone.

BOWIE -- The Bowie Baysox scored an insurance run in the eighth inning on a wild pitch and held off the Trenton Thunder, 6-5, in a Double-A Eastern League game that marked the return of Dave Dellucci to the minor leagues.Dellucci, sent back to Bowie by the Orioles to make room for Geronimo Berroa, went 1-for-5 and scored a run but was not a major factor offensively."I just need to make a mental note to try to hit the ball to the gaps," said Dellucci. "I don't expect that to take too long."

BOSTON - With Karim Garcia's left hand still a little sore, former Oriole David Dellucci started in right field for the New York Yankees last night in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. Garcia was written into Sunday's lineup, but manager Joe Torre scratched him before rain caused the postponement. Juan Rivera would have taken his place. Last night's assignment went to Dellucci, who had appeared in two playoff games this year without getting an at-bat. He scored Thursday after pinch running for Jason Giambi at Yankee Stadium.

The Orioles aren't optimistic that first baseman Jeff Conine will be available for their four-game series against the New York Yankees that began last night, leaving them especially vulnerable against left-handed pitching. Conine was found to have bursitis at the base of his right biceps during Monday's examination by team physician Dr. Charles Silberstein. The 72-hour rest period ends today, and Conine doesn't appear close to returning. "I guess bursitis can be tricky," he said of the inflammatory ailment.

PHOENIX -- When the Arizona Diamondbacks chose David Dellucci in their expansion draft, he assumed it would become the worst move of his career. He had no idea how well it would turn out. Neither did the Orioles. Dellucci was promoted from Double-A Bowie in 1997 and appeared in 17 games, batting .222 with one homer. He won over fans at Camden Yards with some acrobatic catches in right field and a youthful exuberance often missing from a club that went wire-to-wire in winning the American League East title.

PHOENIX - David Dellucci knows exactly what's missing each time he hears the national anthem before the start of an Arizona Diamondbacks game. The "O." "There's nothing like hearing the Baltimore fans say it," said Dellucci, who spent three years in the Orioles organization. "It sent chills down my spine. I still think about it today every time I hear it played." Dellucci was the Orioles' No. 10 pick in the 1995 draft, the year the team made pitcher Alvie Shepherd its top selection. The outfielder rose quickly through Frederick and Bowie, and was the Double-A Eastern League MVP. He was called up to Baltimore in May 1997, after Eric Davis became ill and was diagnosed with colon cancer.
