Preparation that meets opportunity.These are the words that dictate Dwight Smith's life.As a constant reminder, Smith keeps this motto in his locker on a crinkled piece of folded Orioles' stationery. It is his reminder that luck doesn't exist. Success is achieved only by hard work."In baseball, we play every day; there's no such thing as luck," Smith said. "You better have skill."Smith's philosophies are from the dirt and sweat school of thought. He believes in reaping benefits from a job well done.

Orioles outfielder Dwight Smith was a boy once, though not for long. His father died when Dwight was 7. He had to become the man of the house, helping his mother handle the finances and finding a way to stretch a limited income as far as they could stretch it.He was a child with the responsibilities of an adult growing up in Varnville, S.C., and Dwight Smith knows he can never recapture the youth he missed.And he can never bring back his mother, who died early in his minor-league career.What he can and does do is help today's children relish their formative years.

Where have you gone, Larry Sheets?Jim Dwyer?John Lowenstein?For that matter, where have you gone, Joe Orsulak and David Segui?Any of the above would look good in an Orioles uniform right now -- yes, even Brother Lowe at the age of 47.Once upon a time, the Orioles took pride in their left-handed hitters off the bench.Suddenly, they can't even find one at Triple-A.Club officials are now furiously trying to correct a deficiency they should have addressed last winter. Their wish list contains several names, the most attainable of which might be California outfielder Dwight Smith.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards broke out of its coma last night.Broke out of it with the crack of Leo Gomez's bat in the seventh inning of the Orioles' 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.Gomez hammered a just-fair home run off Toronto reliever Mike Timlin, his 15th, with one on to bring the Orioles from one rundown to one run up. Crank up the volume. The spark returned to the park that hadn't said boo since the recent setting of the strike date of Aug. 12.Of course, the Orioles hadn't given the home crowd much to clamor about until last night, when a four-game losing streak died in the din of a happy place.

CLEVELAND -- Orioles center fielder Brady Anderson left last night's game with a strained right hamstring, but manager Johnny Oates said the extent of the injury won't be known until today.Anderson said the problem occurred when he beat out a drag bunt in the fifth inning."I don't think it's real bad," said Anderson, one of two Orioles to appear in all 73 games this season, along with shortstop Cal Ripken.Anderson said it was possible he could play tonight against right-hander Jason Grimsley, but he was limping noticeably in the Orioles' clubhouse after the game.
