ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Hasim Rahman was drenched in sweat by Round 13, yet he had energy to burn. The former world heavyweight champion from Baltimore alternately fired hard left jabs, launched right hands or ripped home hooks with both hands - all at the body of a man who admitted to being in way over his head. The opponent was Rahman's 60-year-old trainer, Adrian Davis. "For the 15 rounds we went, I just got in there and pushed him, made him chase me to hit me, made him sweat and get a workout today," Davis said last week.

TORONTO - "Hi, this is Dan, I'm either on my phone or away from my tent at this time." That was the message greeting callers to Dan Mason's office last week, a message he hoped to erase by now. Mason, the general manager at Triple-A Rochester, agreed Wednesday to sleep in a tent in the Red Wings' bullpen until they won a game. Rochester lost again yesterday, setting a Red Wings record for consecutive defeats at 12. A master at promotions, Mason borrowed a blanket from the equipment manager and took two pillows from the couch in his office.

Richard Stahl is raw, but he could be the next pitching phenom in the Orioles' farm system. A 19-year-old left-hander from Georgia, Stahl (pronounced Staw) has the kind of arm that makes scouts drool and managers smile. And at 6 feet 7 and 185 pounds, he could be a younger version of Randy Johnson. "He's an exciting guy with some arm," said Joe Ferguson, his manager at Single-A Delmarva. "All he needs to do is get his feet on the ground." Stahl nearly slipped away from the Orioles, not signing until Aug.23, the day he was to report to classes at Georgia Tech.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- For all the controversy that swirled around this night, the Orioles left town leaving behind no losers.A 1-hour, 49-minute exhibition between the Orioles and their Triple-A affiliate Rochester Red Wings ended in a 1-1 tie even after the Orioles offered a goodwill gesture by extending the scheduled seven-inning game to eight innings. Despite rumors of player defections all Orioles were present for their 23rd game in 25 days. The capacity Frontier Field crowd of 13,307 enjoyed only a fleeting glimpse of most Orioles regulars, but at least the game was played.

Orioles baseball is in Naomi Silver's blood, but it soon may be leaving Rochester, N.Y. A season devoted to heightened visibility for the Orioles' oft-scrutinized player development system comes to a disappointing close today with Silver, chairman and chief operating officer of the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings, providing a sobering requiem. In statements originally published in Thursday's Rochester Democrat and Chronicle and only slightly softened Friday, Silver says her franchise is prepared to end its 41-year relationship with the Orioles after next season for reasons of insufficient talent and confusing methodology.

The Orioles intend to announce a decision today on whether they will play a scheduled exhibition against their Triple-A team in Rochester on Monday, but as of last night the club was still in a "fact-gathering" mode about what has become a delicate situation.A day after right fielder Albert Belle posted a clubhouse petition asking teammates to boycott the game, chief operating officer Joe Foss and general manager Frank Wren met with player representatives Mike Mussina and B. J. Surhoff before last night's game.

Last Oct. 3, with the Orioles playing their final home game at Camden Yards, Jeff Wilson became engaged to his fiancee, Susan. Then an Arizona Diamondbacks farmhand, Wilson didn't know that he was soon to become Orioles property. "The mascot came by and gave her two dozen roses and everything," said the Bowie Baysox left-hander, who ranks seventh in the Double-A Eastern League with a 2.72 ERA. "Two months after that, the Orioles took me in the Rule 5 draft. It was ironic, almost eerie."

Results, schedule Yesterday Triple-A, International League Syracuse 7, Rochester 3: Cole Liniak's eighth-inning grand slam helped the SkyChiefs to a 7-3 win over the Red Wings in the Frontier Field home opener. The Wings went ahead early, helped by Wady Almonte's two-run homer in the first. Almonte drove in another run in the third, and John Bale's pitching (five innings, five hits, one earned run, a walk and four strikeouts) left the Wings in good shape until the seventh. Liniak's grand slam off Red Wings reliever Chad Paronto made a winner out of SkyChiefs reliever John Frascatore.

Outfielder Larry Bigbie, who was batting .400 last month at Triple-A Rochester, suffered another injury yesterday that could keep him out of the Red Wings' lineup for a significant period. Playing his second game in the outfield since straining a muscle in his right shoulder, Bigbie slid into a concrete wall at Frontier Field while chasing a foul ball against the Ottawa Lynx and severely sprained his right ankle. Bigbie was carried off the field by trainer Dave Walker and coach Butch Davis, and he will be put on the disabled list once a replacement is found.
