BOWIE -- No matter what happens tonight, the Reading Phillies probably won't have any fond memories of their first series at Prince George's County Stadium.The Bowie Baysox made sure of that last night as they rallied from an early deficit and downed Reading, 4-2, before a near-capacity crowd of 12,467.The Baysox, who clinched an Eastern League playoff spot with Wednesday's 8-3 win, will try to sweep the five-game series tonight before following the Phillies back to Reading, Pa., for a two-game series.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Johnny Oates liked the question, but company loyalty must first be satisfied."I would love nothing more than to finish my managing career for Doug Melvin, Tom Schieffer, Rusty Rose and Gov. [George W.] Bush," Oates said. "Nothing would make me happier. They've all treated me very well."Oates paused."Of course, we haven't had a four-game losing streak yet," he said with a laugh.Then he addressed the question: If Billy Martin, who went through one horrible experience after another with George Steinbrenner, could manage the New York Yankees five times, could he manage the Orioles again?

When John Habyan recalls the freak shoulder injury that nearly destroyed his pitching career in 1989, he doesn't look back in anger.He looks back in relief. Literally.That's because the injury likely saved his pitching career, and, at the least, defined it."It was like a blessing in disguise," said Habyan, 28, among the first of the New York Yankees to arrive at Camden Yards for last night's game against the Orioles."I had to learn to pitch when I came back because I didn't have good velocity."

SEATTLE -- Mariners third baseman Edgar Martinez got all of a Ben McDonald curveball yesterday and drove it to the outer limits of the Kingdome, which raised an interesting question in the Orioles clubhouse:Did he know what was coming?Manager Johnny Oates started the debate when he wondered aloud whether it was possible to hit a sharp breaking ball that well without knowing what the pitch was going to be. He said it in a lighthearted manner, but wouldn't deny that the thought had crossed his mind.

Fernando Valenzuela came very close to his first big league win in three years last night, but he just couldn't reach it.Valenzuela turned in his longest performance in the majors since September 1990, pitching seven effective innings against the Kansas City Royals, but getting a no-decision in the 5-4 loss."

DETROIT -- Things are so bad for the Orioles that nasty omens are showing up before the first pitch.Arthur Rhodes couldn't make his scheduled start yesterday because he strained his left knee while jogging in the outfield. It is not known whether or not the left-hander will miss another start, but the situation left manager Johnny Oates with the possibility of having to add two pitchers."Right now I'm not worried about a starter -- I'll worry about that in five days," said Oates. "I might need somebody to pitch tomorrow [today]

DETROIT -- Despite the expanded roster, a growing list of injured players has left the Orioles facing a possible manpower shortage.Right-hander reliever Todd Frohwirth became the latest player to be shelved with an injury. He is suffering from a "tired" intercostal muscle in his right side and almost certainly will not pitch during the final four games of the season."I'm going to rest it until it feels better," said Frohwirth, who has not pitched since Saturday. "They say that I won't blow it out by pitching, but they say that it might get worse."

Cal Ripken Sr., a member of the Orioles organization for 36 years, has been removed as third-base coach and asked to take a minor-league position, club officials said yesterday.The decision to replace Ripken, who joined the major-league club in 1976, apparently was made shortly after the regular season. Club officials said they are awaiting word from Ripken on whether he will accept a demotion to minor-league instructor or retire.General manager Roland Hemond refused to confirm Ripken's dismissal as third-base coach yesterday, but he and manager Johnny Oates said club officials have spoken with Ripken about moving to a different job."

BOSTON -- Strange as it sounds, the Orioles could be in first place by tonight.Six games off the pace 12 days ago, they can move into a tie for first with a victory over the New York Yankees tonight in the opener of a four-game series at Camden Yards against the American League East leaders.The Orioles brought themselves to the brink of first by completing a three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox with a rain-interrupted, 8-4 victory yesterday at Fenway Park, where the crowd count was 32,280 and the rain was heavy.

Mark Eichhorn's season appears to have started almost a month late. It's as though somebody threw the pitch switch to the "on" position May 1 instead of April 4.As sophisticated as baseball has become, nobody can fully explain how these things happen -- they just do. In Eichhorn's case, the missing ingredients were easy to identify.When the sidearming right-hander threw the ball early in the season, there was no movement and generally poor location. He was releasing the ball too soon, and paying a heavy price (a 7.56 earned run average)

NEW YORK -- This is the best thing for Arthur Rhodes, as long as the Orioles don't give up on him. What Rhodes needs is a pat on the back and the chance to pitch every fifth day. After yesterday's nightmare at Yankee Stadium, the Orioles couldn't pTC get him on the plane to Rochester fast enough.Rhodes reached the majors after only 17 starts at Triple-A -- four fewer than Mike Mussina, who was virtually a finished product coming out of Stanford. The best thing now would be to keep him at Triple-A the entire season.

Ben McDonald's X-rays were negative. Alan Mills threw pain-free in the bullpen. Sid Fernandez pitched batting practice and manager Johnny Oates said it was the best he looked all spring.On a clear day at Camden Yards, the Orioles could see forever.It was only an exhibition game, only the final tuneup for the season opener, but Lee Smith exerted more effort strolling in from the bullpen than the Orioles did in scoring nine runs on the defending National League champion Phillies.Home runs by Chris Sabo and Rafael Palmeiro, a 10-pitch ninth inning by Smith, a sellout crowd on a gorgeous afternoon -- if Opening Day is this good, owner Peter Angelos might buy us two football teams, plus Andy Benes.

It's official: Mike Mussina has pitched for the last time this season.The right-hander was briefly examined before batting practice yesterday by club physician Charles Silberstein, who urged Mussina to take the rest of the year off."All he [Silberstein] did was suggest that we shut him down for the rest of the year, and that was the end of the conversation," manager Johnny Oates said.Mussina, who has battled nagging injuries to his shoulder and back for the past four months, said Silberstein's examination was short and to the point.

Dick Bosman had only a small gathering for his first off-season workout yesterday, but that didn't dull the enthusiasm of the Baltimore Orioles' new pitching coach.In town primarily to jump start his program with Ben McDonald, Bosman sounded like someone who was ready to start spring training. "I kind of have to hold myself back, I'm so excited about getting started," Bosman said after yesterday's informal workout under the right-field stands at Memorial Stadium.McDonald and relievers Gregg Olson and Jim Poole were the only Orioles pitchers present yesterday, but the number is expected to grow as the week progresses.

For those who may have had some doubts, let it be known that the jet stream at Camden Yards is fully functional.For a while Friday night it appeared as if the American and PTC National League All-Star teams had returned to resume batting practice -- wearing the uniforms of the Orioles and Minnesota Twins.In the kind of slugfest Babe Ruth, who grew up in the area, would have appreciated, the Orioles out-homered and outlasted the Twins, gaining a 9-7 decision. The verdict, which was in doubt until Gregg Olson closed it out in the ninth inning,lifted the Orioles to within a half-game of the American League's Eastern Division lead.

The afternoon was sizzling and so was Fernando Valenzuela. Perhaps it wasn't a coincidence.The temperature was 101 degrees when the Orioles left-hander took the mound yesterday, but he beat the heat and he held the Chicago White Sox to two hits over eight innings en route to a 6-0 victory at Camden Yards.You want hot? Valenzuela has not given up a run in his past three starts. He will carry a string of 23 2/3 scoreless innings into his next start. He has combined with fellow comeback left-hander Jamie Moyer to go unscored upon for five starts and 40 2/3 innings.
