SARASOTA, Fla. -- Via conventional placement, Eugene Kingsale would be headed to Triple-A Rochester this season to continue his quest for the major leagues.But the speedy outfielder does not expect to go any farther north than Maryland when the Orioles' minor-league camp breaks up next month."I'm expecting that I'll probably end up going to [Double-A] Bowie," said Kingsale, the first native Aruban to play in the big leagues. "I don't know why except that I need to play and get at-bats and I might not do that at Rochester.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Stepping onto the field yesterday, the Orioles were focused on winning the last game of their series against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and avoiding an embarrassing sweep. They had at least nine innings to play before getting on a charter for the next destination on their road trip. It seemed like business as usual. But many of them had no idea they were in the presence of royalty. Sidney Ponson didn't take the same flight as the other Orioles. He left last night for his native Aruba, where he'll be knighted tomorrow by the queen of the Netherlands.

VIERA, Fla. -- Eugene Kingsale says he just wants to do the little things that help the Orioles win. Should he graduate to bigger things, he could help his own cause tremendously. There's an opening on the club's roster for a spare outfielder. And there's Kingsale, hoping to avoid another stop at Triple-A Rochester but braced for whatever fate awaits him. He still has another minor-league option remaining, a fact that didn't present itself until late November. He also has ground to make up because the Orioles already have Rich Amaral in place with another year left on his contract.

**** Tim Raines Jr.: Takes a Kodak moment and kicks it up a few notches. Nice PR move by the Orioles. *** Josh Towers: Aided by a more consistent strike zone, Towers is much improved over his debut in Jupiter. Jerry Hairston: Singles, steals a base and cuts down the potential tying run at the plate in the ninth. Jeff Conine: Goes 2-for-4 with a triple and scores the winning run in the eighth. ** Sean Douglass: Two shutout innings in relief of Jay Spurgeon, but allows a hit and walks two. * Jay Spurgeon: If this continues, he'll be fighting to make Triple-A Rochester's rotation.

BOWIE -- Usually, the Bowie Baysox are surrounded by glowing preseason expectations that haven't been fulfilled. This year is just the opposite."I like it this way," said third-year manager Joe Ferguson, who yesterday celebrated the 25th anniversary of being behind the plate when Al Downing served Hank Aaron's historic home run No. 715. "There hasn't been a whole bunch of hoopla made around this team."The Baysox will be a mixture of the old -- 11 players were on the roster in 1998 -- and the new -- an influx of promoted players from a Frederick club that struggled, plus free-agent and trade acquisitions.

Highlights and lowlights from the Orioles' 2-0 loss to the Texas Rangers in Port Charlotte, Fla. UP - Calvin Maduro: Looking more and more like the fifth starter. UP - Jose Mercedes: Nothing wrong with pitching in relief. It's still the majors. DOWN - Chuck McElroy: Allowed two hits and a run in the sixth. DOWN - The wind: Had more knockdowns than Mike Tyson. DOWN - Eddy Martinez: Got in the game long enough to commit an error at shortstop. EVEN - Eugene Kingsale: Had the club's first hit and a base-running blunder.

MINNEAPOLIS - Eugene Kingsale's season was supposed to end two days before the close of spring training. It never should have left Sarasota, Fla. It never should have reached the Orioles. Those were the challenges he faced, ones few people in the organization expected him to meet. But Kingsale rehabbed a torn quadriceps muscle, first with rest, then with a series of treatments and exercises. He played at four levels of the minor-league system, then defied the odds some more by receiving a promotion to the Orioles last Friday.

DETROIT -- A day after their frustrated manager complained of a recent slump by the middle of his lineup and a season-long absence of production from its bottom third, the Orioles received significant contributions from both sectors to pound the Detroit Tigers, 11-4, in their last game as guests at Tiger Stadium. The win couldn't salvage a losing road trip against two of the major leagues' losingest three clubs. Nor could it cloak a growing schism between manager Ray Miller and general manager Frank Wren.

The protected list forwarded by the Orioles to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Devil Rays for Tuesday's expansion draft was relatively free of surprises but hardly without heated debate, club sources maintain.The Sun has learned that the Orioles' 15-man protected list is composed of 11 veterans and four others with little or no major-league experience. Among those exposed are catcher Chris Hoiles, outfielders Eric Davis and Geronimo Berroa and relievers Alan Mills, Jesse Orosco and Terry Mathews.
