Failing to work out a new contract or a trade, the Orioles ended their association with Geronimo Berroa yesterday by allowing the midnight deadline to pass for tendering a contract to the outfielder and making him a free agent.The Orioles made offers to reliever Armando Benitez and outfielders Jeffrey Hammonds and Tony Tarasco. They'll go through arbitration if unable to reach contract agreements by the end of next month.Berroa was acquired from the Oakland Athletics on June 27 for minor-league pitchers Jimmy Haynes and Mark Seaver, with expectations that the free swinger would inject some life into a quiet offense.

On the field: The Orioles ran themselves out of the first inning. With Jeff Reboulet on second, Eric Davis on first and one out, Geronimo Berroa sent a long drive into the right-field corner. Milwaukee's Jeromy Burnitz made a running grab, then turned to find both Reboulet and Davis at third base. It was Milwaukee's 45th outfield assist, one shy of the club record.In the dugout: Milwaukee shortstop Jose Valentin was a late scratch because of a bruised foot, caused by a foul tip Saturday. Manager Phil Garner moved Mark Loretta from first base to shortstop and added Jack Voigt to the lineup.

Orioles manager Davey Johnson began the American League Championship Series last night by again tweaking his lineup, though not as radically as he had in games 1 and 4 of last week's Division Series against Seattle.Johnson said he agonized over his lineup for Game 1, trying to fit "three great hitters" into two spots. He settled for Geronimo Berroa in right field and Harold Baines as designated hitter against Cleveland Indians right-hander Chad Ogea, putting Eric Davis on the bench.Johnson cited Davis' fatigue from incessant interview requests and heavier playing time while still undergoing after-care and chemotherapy for colon cancer.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- David Cone turned his already impressive comeback story into an amazing tale yesterday when he pitched seven no-hit innings against the Oakland Athletics, less than four months after surgery to remove an aneurysm under his right armpit.The New York Yankees pitcher, who was making his first major-league start since May 2, was removed from the game after throwing 85 pitches. The Yankees had announced that he would be limited to 100 pitches, but manager Joe Torre decided it was not worth taking risks with his top starter.

Now the question about the Orioles, pitcher Mike Mussina said Sunday, is how will they react now that they're back in the wild-card chase.Last night, they didn't react very well. They botched several scoring chances, and Oakland scored the winning runs in the ninth to beat the Orioles, 3-1, before 41,512. The Orioles missed an opportunity to gain ground in the wild-card race; they're still 4 1/2 games behind Texas.Rick Krivda had pitched eight good innings and the Orioles had mustered eight hits and three walks against Oakland starter Steve Ontiveros and four relievers.

Scan the Orioles' clubhouse before a game, and you might find closer Randy Myers sitting on the floor in front of his locker, a newspaper spread out before him. Other players will plop down on one of the sofas and peruse the sports section. There's always a stack of them within arm's reach.Geronimo Berroa has no interest in taking one, even if it includes a story recounting his two-run homer in the eighth inning last night that enabled the Orioles to defeat the Minnesota Twins, 5-4. He also won't bother to tune into the radio call-in shows to capture the fans' perspective on the team.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- In Boston in 1948, the saying regarding the Braves' two-man pitching staff was "Spahn and Sain and Pray for Rain."Regarding the '95 Orioles: Mussina and Brown and Then They Go Down.Neither Mike Mussina nor Kevin Brown pitched yesterday, and the Orioles did go down, in an embarrassing 9-6 loss to the Oakland Athletics. Embarrassing because the Orioles' pitching staff, if that's what it can be called, walked 14, tying a club record set in 1968.They walked at least one hitter in seven of eight innings.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nearly a year ago, the Orioles acquired Todd Zeile and Pete Incaviglia to improve their right-handed hitting for the stretch run. The need isn't as urgent this season, but it's significant enough that the club attempted to trade for Mike Stanley before the July 31 waiver deadline.When the deal fell through, the Orioles claimed Stanley on waivers, according to league sources. But the New York Yankees also claimed the catcher, and because they had a lesser record, gained exclusive negotiating rights with Boston for the next 72 hours.
