Offered a chance at making history, the Orioles yesterday chose to repeat it. Because the Seattle Mariners eventually played like the Mariners and the Orioles like the Orioles, Brady Anderson's early three-run homer and starting pitcher Jose Mercedes' five strong innings were negated by forces that have become as predictable as the tides for each team. The Mariners left Camden Yards with a 6-4 win after trailing 4-1. The Orioles' frustration was only heightened by what they might have accomplished.

Some major-league clubs have decided to sit out the free-agent hunt until January, hoping the dearth of activity will lower salary demands. Others are sitting it out to wait to see what economic system will govern the game, thus protecting themselves from having to pay penalties for overspending.The Orioles, meanwhile, continue to talk to free agents, but are undecided as to how quickly they will take the next step actually to sign players.Free-agent pitchers Bill Swift (with the San Francisco Giants in 1994)

SEATTLE -- So far this season, Alan Mills has been to relief pitchers what Mike Devereaux has been to hitters, an all-or-nothing player.Mills, who gave up the game-winning home run to Seattle's Jay Buhner in the eighth inning of Friday night's 5-4 loss to the Mariners at the Kingdome, has given up five home runs in his first 6 2/3 innings. He also has struck out 12, walked four and allowed 12 hits.Devereaux homered four times and drove in 10 runs in his first 66 at-bats. He also struck out 24 times.

CLEVELAND -- Alan Mills sat in front of his locker after another excruciating defeat Sunday night, this one putting the Orioles on the brink of elimination in the American League Championship Series. He had ice wrapped on his right elbow and wore the look of someone who had just watched a truck back over his dog.He granted a television interview but needed to muster all his strength to rise from his chair. Moments earlier, he had been tagged with the loss when Armando Benitez allowed the runner he inherited from Mills to score in the ninth.

Keys to the game1. Painful exit. Jamie Moyer, who was 4-0 against the Orioles in the past two seasons, was removed from the game in the fifth because of an injury to his elbow with his team leading 2-1 and Orioles runners on first and second. His replacement, Paul Spoljaric, gave up a two-run double to Roberto Alomar, the first batter he faced, to put the Orioles in front to stay. "It seemed like when he went out, everything turned around," Alomar said.2. No relief. Going into the series, the biggest difference between the clubs was considered to be their bullpens.
