NEW YORK - Left-hander Andy Pettitte began his season with six scoreless innings in the New York Yankees' home opener. He closed it by winning five straight decisions and 10 of his last 11. It's what happened in between that makes his finish, and tonight's assignment against the Anaheim Angels in Game 2 of the American League Division Series, so improbable. Pettitte missed two months after going on the disabled list, retroactive to April 16, with left elbow tendinitis, and was scratched from an Aug. 31 start with lower-back stiffness.

When the Orioles and Cleveland Indians opened their four-game series at the beginning of the week, it's safe to assume the two sides eagerly were awaiting each other.With a .249 average, the Orioles were the third-worst hitting team in the American League, and the Indians were next to last in pitching with a 5.08 earned run average. Something, it seemed, had to give -- but didn't.The four-game set ended in a draw yesterday, as a trio of Cleveland pitchers restricted the Orioles to three hits in a 3-1 win that enabled the Indians to split the series.

Even for all the beatings the Orioles have taken lately, no one has been able to deliver the knockout punch that brings about the sweep that triggers the panic button.Yesterday was yet another survival Sunday for the Orioles, who won a game to avoid a sweep for the third consecutive Sunday, a day of the week that has served as a smelling salt for the team.Rallying from a four-run, fifth-inning deficit, the Orioles defeated the Chicago White Sox, 8-5, in front of 47,257 at Camden Yards, where the crowd finally had reason to get loud.
