A night reserved for special appearances began with Albert Belle doling flowers to dumbstruck fans at Gate A, Cal Ripken smuggling himself into the home clubhouse about 30 minutes before the first pitch and Ramon "The Other" Martinez emerging as a postseason factor for the Boston Red Sox.Like the majority of his more active teammates, Ripken was reduced to a spectator as four Red Sox pitchers combined for a three-hit, 8-0 shutout of the Orioles at sold-out...

On the field: The double-play combination of Cal Ripken and Roberto Alomar dominated the second inning. First, Alomar ranged far to his left to dive and glove a hard grounder for an out, and, after Brent Gates singled, Ripken smartly fielded a vicious short-hop with a flick of his glove to start a 6-4-3 double play.In the dugout: The game was delayed for several minutes at the beginning of the second inning when a large and very bright light was turned on in the construction site beyond the center-field wall.

Searching for a place on the Orioles bench, Cal Ripken asked innocently, "Do you want me to sit up?"And because he could do just that without a wince or a trace of exaggerated effort, Ripken extended the best answer possible even before he fielded questions before last night's 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before 37,009 at Camden Yards.Exactly one month and 27 games after landing on the disabled list for the second time this season -- which meant the second time of his 19-year career -- Ripken resumed his chase of something positive within an overcast season.

BOSTON -- The questions continue to change for Orioles left-hander Doug Johns.During spring training, onlookers wondered who Johns was. A month ago, they wondered why he couldn't fall asleep. Two weeks ago, manager Ray Miller was asking himself whether Johns should be in the starting rotation.But after last night's game at Fenway Park, the question changes once more.Can Doug Johns, mystery man, start Sunday against the Atlanta Braves on three days' rest?Just joking. But everything else about the Orioles' only healthy left-handed starter must now be taken seriously.

SEATTLE -- Whack.It could have been the sound of Will Clark's right hand plowing into a dugout wall after a fourth-inning flyout.It could have been the sound of Ray Miller picking up a fungo and pile-driving it into the dugout floor after watching his starting pitcher suffer the latest in a string of mental lapses, this one giving the Seattle Mariners an out in the second inning.Or it could have been the sound of the Orioles dropping their third consecutive game, guaranteeing themselves another losing series on another losing road trip.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Ask him if he enjoys punishing his former team and Texas Rangers designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro will deflect the issue. He needn't say a word. Last night the hobbled slugger's bat again exacted retribution from a team now numbed by its plight.Palmeiro broke open a tie game with a three-run homer in the sixth inning as the Rangers rolled to an 8-1 win before 46,118 at The Ballpark. To those still counting, the Orioles have lost six straight and seven of eight to construct a 12-24 record.

Doug Johns sat on one of the sofas in the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday, playing chess with pitcher Ricky Bones and delaying the moment when he would return to his locker and be hit with the inevitable questions from reporters.Questions he couldn't answer.Because his case is in litigation, Johns could offer only a "no comment" when asked about his arrest Monday night in downtown Baltimore on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while intoxicated and failure to obey a traffic signal.

The intrigue surrounding Orioles' wild-card fever took on a grimmer look last night. The Toronto Blue Jays reminded them with a 13-6 beating at Camden Yards that no assumptions are safe this season.Hoping to use this four-game home series to break a third-place tie with the Blue Jays while reasserting themselves within their own division, the Orioles instead suffered another public flogging by the league's weakest-hitting team. They fell to 6-13 in the American League East and dropped 9 1/2 games behind the wild-card leader Boston Red Sox.The Blue Jays have hit .253 against the rest of the league.
