On the Orioles' free-agent targets Mark Mulder should be the Orioles' No. 1 signing this offseason. ... If the Orioles can sign a starting pitcher immediately in the offseason, their chances of making a trade for a hitter increase.

You really can have enough money. Who knew? Gil Meche, an everyman starting pitcher with an 84-83 record after 10 big-league seasons, made a louder statement with his recent decision to retire than he ever did on the mound. He walked away from the $12 million he was due in the last year of his contract because he didn't think he had enough good pitches left in his ailing right shoulder to justify being the Royals' highest-paid player. " "I'm not really fulfilling what I thought I needed to do when I signed," Meche told reporters.

SEATTLE -- The ball trickled down the third base line, hitting the infield grass and then veering toward the thick line of chalk. It appeared to roll into foul territory, though only for a brief and hard-to-discern instant, before bounding back and settling comfortably in fair ground. When there was no hope left, third baseman Melvin Mora picked up Jeremy Reed's bunt as Kris Benson stood stoically a few yards away, staring in disbelief. It would get much worse in the second inning for the Orioles' best and most reliable starter this season.

Caught after catch Rays first baseman Carlos Pena doubled twice to start rallies and scored each time to help pace Tampa Bay. But his most impressive play happened in the Orioles' dugout. Melvin Mora hit a pop-up in the first inning, and Pena and Rays catcher Dioner Navarro gave chase. Navarro stopped at the rail of the home dugout, but Pena continued, making a lunging catch and then flipping over the rail. He was head over heels when he was caught by several Orioles, including starter Brad Bergesen.

Quote: "I don't want to make a big deal out of the run support. If this was going to happen all year, yeah, I'd be frustrated. But it's way too early to worry about it." - Gil Meche, for whom the Mariners have scored four runs in his six starts while he's in the game It's a fact: A home run has been hit in all 17 games at SkyDome, and the Blue Jays' ERA at home is 7.18. Who's hot: The Tigers' Juan Encarnacion has an 18-game hitting streak. Who's not: Darin Erstad is 3-for-21 on the Angels' road trip.

It certainly was not the spot Sam Perlozzo wanted for Kurt Birkins, but with all his other options in the bullpen exhausted at that point, the Orioles' manager had no choice. So, in a scoreless game in the 12th inning last night, Perlozzo summoned Birkins, who had not pitched to live hitters since an appearance in extended spring training March 30. The left-hander was one out away from escaping the inning unscathed before he threw a changeup to Detroit Tigers left fielder Craig Monroe that caught way too much of the plate.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It was more of a hint than a directive, but the message was sent. Orioles veteran starter Steve Trachsel needed to give the Orioles a chance to win last night after failing to accomplish that task in three of his past four starts or his rotation and roster spot would be in jeopardy. Trachsel responded, and so did the Orioles' bats, in a 7-4 win against Kansas City, the Orioles' 11th straight victory over the Royals. "I've had bad performances in more than two games in a row. I've had five or six consecutive," Trachsel, 37, said.

If there were a lesson for Orioles pitcher Daniel Cabrera to ponder while he served a recent six-game suspension, it might have included the wisdom of throwing strikes instead of throwing behind a batter's head. You're more likely to win games that way. Cabrera didn't lose his composure last night, and he didn't lose a game. But he's still looking for that elusive first victory in more than a month. Not everything is in his control, even when he's maintaining his own. Trying to avoid the indignity of being the majors' sole leader in losses, Cabrera left after seven innings with the Orioles ahead 2-1. Pinch hitter Mark Grudzielanek homered off reliever Jamie Walker (3-2)

OPPORTUNITIES NOT LACKING The Orioles had plenty of chances early against Texas starter Kevin Millwood but couldn't hit the ball out of the infield when necessary. In the first and fifth innings, they had men on first and third bases with one out, and Miguel Tejada and Luis Hernandez hit into double plays. They also had men on second and third with two outs in the second and eighth, but Freddie Bynum struck out in the second and Aubrey Huff grounded out in the eighth. It was the Orioles' fourth shutout this month.

Guthrie still solid Those waiting for Jeremy Guthrie to suffer a letdown this year will have to wait another five days. Guthrie allowed a first-inning home run to Mark Teahen, but not much else over seven innings. He surrendered just two runs on three hits and a walk in seven innings, improving to 3-1 with a 3.02 ERA. In six starts this season spanning 40 1/3 innings, Guthrie has given up just seven earned runs. He's gone at least seven innings in four straight starts. HERNANDEZ FINDS STROKE When Orioles catcher Ramon Hernandez arrived at Kauffman Stadium, he was in a 5-for-36 slump and hadn't had an RBI since May 11. But facing the Royals' pitching staff has a way of breaking a player out of a slump.
