MINNEAPOLIS -- Orioles second-year pitcher Chris Ray seemingly has this closer thing down. Like a calm and cool veteran, he's 15-for-15 in save opportunities. And in non-save situations, well, he's not nearly as good -- just like most self-respecting closers. "If anything, it should be a little easier," Ray said of non-save situations. "Because guys aren't going to try to steal bases off you or push that one run across, especially if they are down by four or so." But Ray's early numbers fall in line with the typical baseball mind-set that good closers simply aren't as dominating when a game is not on the line.

NEW YORK -- Orioles starter Kris Benson did not leave the New York Mets on his own terms last winter, but he said he carries no hard feelings into his first start against his former team. Benson was set to oppose Mets ace Pedro Martinez yesterday. "It's just going to be a regular game against a good team," he said Friday. Benson had a solid 2005 season for the Mets, going 10-8 with a 4.13 ERA. But the Mets traded him in the offseason amid speculation that they were tired of the antics of his wife, Anna.

The Orioles swapped left-handed long relievers yesterday when they purchased John Halama's contract from Triple-A Ottawa and designated Eric DuBose for assignment. Halama spent less than a week in the minors after being among the final players cut from the 25-man roster last weekend. The veteran seemed grim when approached by reporters but said: "It's not that I'm not thrilled. I'm happy as heck to be back here." He had not pitched for Ottawa before learning of his promotion around midnight Friday.

SEATTLE -- The idea was to somehow find a way to get the ball to closer Chris Ray with a lead, no matter the means. It began with five innings from John Halama, who made his last start eight months ago and continued with a shaky one-third of an inning from top prospect Adam Loewen in his major league debut. Todd Williams came on for 1 2/3 innings and then LaTroy Hawkins sweated through two outs, and at last, Ray was on the mound with the Orioles clinging to a one-run lead and the tying run on third with two outs in the eighth inning.

NEW YORK - The American League Championship Series provides a homecoming of sorts for Seattle Mariners left-hander John Halama, a Brooklyn native who starts Game 2 today against the New York Yankees. He isn't particularly sentimental about the occasion, or anything else. Members of the New York media seemed perplexed yesterday that Halama, 28, never ventured inside Yankee Stadium while growing up, and attended only one Mets game. "I'm not really a big baseball fan," he said. "I love playing it, but I don't watch baseball at all. I don't read the sports sections.

The Orioles cut their roster to a final 25 players last night. The last seven cuts were outfielder Brandon Marsters, catcher Eli Whiteside, utility infielder Ed Rogers and relievers John Halama, Cory Morris, Eddy Rodriguez and Tyler Yates. None was shocking, though Halama was thought to be a strong candidate for long relief. He'll start the season at Triple-A Ottawa. "I told John to go down there and be ready," manager Sam Perlozzo said. "Because it might be pretty quick that we need him to come back up here."

Late Orioles game: Last night's game between the Orioles and Mariners in Seattle ended too late to be included in this edition. A complete report can be found in later editions or on the Internet at www.baltimoresun.com. SEATTLE -- His pitching staff in shambles, Sam Perlozzo was asked if the latest addition to his rotation, Adam Loewen, was ready to take on major league hitters. The Orioles manager thought about it for a second, before admitting that even he was not sure. "You'll all know [if he is ready]

TORONTO -- It's probably far too optimistic to say that the solution to the Orioles' relief problems was pitching last night about 500 miles away from here, where the team experienced its latest bullpen meltdown. At a minor league park in Bowie, Todd Williams was making his third rehab appearance for the Baysox, pitching another scoreless inning against Double-A opposition. If injuries - first his right shoulder and then his right calf - had not wiped out his entire spring, Williams would have been the likely choice on the mound in the decisive spot at Rogers Centre last night.

TORONTO -- Perhaps it was fitting that Toronto Blue Jays closer B.J. Ryan, the former anchor of the Orioles' relief corps, had a good seat for his old team's latest bullpen collapse. Toronto center fielder Vernon Wells broke a seventh-inning deadlock with an RBI double off reliever Jim Brower, and the Blue Jays scored three more runs off the Orioles' beleaguered bullpen, sending the visitors to their third straight defeat, 7-3, before 32,257 at Rogers Centre. "I was trying to get through that inning."
