Davey Johnson made it official last night that he is thinking long term. Pardon Mike Mussina if he doesn't join the celebration.With his two-run, two-strike home run in the eighth inning, right fielder Geronimo Berroa turned what looked like a seldom-seen bullpen defeat into a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Twins before 48,263, the largest crowd ever to see a regular-season game at Camden Yards.Mussina was four innings gone, last night's fall guy in a plan that now sees the first two weeks in September as more important than now.Berroa turned the game against Twins reliever Greg Swindell (7-3)

CLEVELAND -- With 16 games left in the season, the Orioles still retain hope of finishing fifth in the American League East. Beyond that, their best shot at respectability is to build on some rather impressive home run statistics.Going into the three-game series with the Indians that opens here tonight (7:35, HTS), the Orioles trail the fifth-place Yankees by 1 1/2 games. With the Yankees playing three times in Boston, this would appear to be the best opportunity to make up some ground before the Orioles go into New York for three games Oct. 1-3.With a 61-85 record, the other very modest goal besides matching last year's fifth-place finish would be to reach 70 wins, a figure that would still leave them six below last year's total.

This weekend will mark the end of the Memorial Stadium commemorations until the final three days of the season.After the series with Cleveland, the Orioles will have only sihome dates left. Baseball will be the only attraction for the series against Boston Sept. 22-24, setting the stage for the final three dates against Detroit, Oct. 4-6.In conjunction with tonight's game against Cleveland (7:35HTS), the Orioles will commemorate two very significant events in Memorial Stadium history. Yesterday was the 29th anniversary of Washington Senators' righthander Tom Cheney's record 21-strikeout performance in a 2-1, 16-inning win over the Orioles.

CLEVELAND -- After missing three games with a slightly sprained right ankle, third baseman Leo Gomez should be back in the starting lineup when the Orioles face the Cleveland Indians tonight (7:35, HTS).Gomez caught his spikes on a seam of the artificial turf at Royals Stadium last Saturday night. "If you rate ankle sprains on a first-, second- or third-degree basis," said Orioles manager John Oates, "they tell me this one was less than first-degree."Oates had intended to give Gomez the entire game off last night, but used him as a 10th-inning replacement in the Orioles' 5-3 win. "It feels great, a lot better," Gomez said of the ankle.

CLEVELAND -- It shouldn't come as a surprise that the teams with the worst two records in baseball also have the worst records in games decided by one run.What might surprise a lot of people, however, is the fact that the Cleveland Indians (24) and Baltimore Orioles (21) play more one-run games than the other American League teams. It figures then, that these two teams should be closely matched in the three-game series that begins here tonight (7:35, Channel 2).Despite winning a pair of one-run games in Kansas City over the weekend, the Orioles have only a 7-14 record in such slim decisions.

CINCINNATI REDSWhere they're coming from: The Reds had the best record in the division when the strike began, 66-48.Where they're going: Cincinnati, a very good team in a weak division, should run away this year.Key newcomers: LF Ron Gant (injured in 1994), C Benito Santiago (.273).What must go right: They merely need to stay healthy, because this lineup is loaded, with SS Barry Larkin, CF Deion Sanders, 2B Bret Boone, 1B Hal Morris and RF Reggie Sanders. The bullpen doesn't have an ace, but is deep, with right-handers Hector Carrasco, Jeff Brantley and Mike Jackson.

ATLANTA BRAVESSpring priorities: With a solid, young pitching staff, the obvious priorities are finding someone who can be a consistent closer and developing a sound defense. Offensively, the Braves could use a little more power, but their speed and ability to make things happens should be enough to back up a potent starting rotation.New faces: Right-hander Greg Maddux is the only one on the roster that really matters. Non-roster invitees Steve Bedrosian, Jay Howell and Randy St. Claire will try to fill bullpen roles.

You probably never thought of Eli Jacobs as a particularly giving person. But would you change your mind if he gave you a new owner for Christmas?pTC Maybe you've already heard the rumor going around town that Jacobs will be selling the Orioles soon, like by the end of the year. Yes, another one of those rumors. There have been many in the last year, with Jacobs selling to just about everyone except the Skipjacks' backup goalie. Nothing to them. Nothing substantive to this one. At least not yet.But please, feel free to sign up for one of the ad hoc prayer circles that have sprouted up around town.
