The surprise pickup of the Orioles' 2004 season, David Newhan played all over the field, served as a designated hitter, batted .311 and endeared himself to the fans with his all-out hustle. Now, he has to adjust anew to being a reserve, a role he was accustomed to in previous stints with San Diego and Philadelphia. "I was pretty much a bench guy over there," Newhan said before making his first start of the season last night in center field in place of Luis Matos. "I've been through it before.

The Orioles scored five times in the seventh inning yesterday to take the lead, doing all their damage against Florida closer Guillermo Mota, and posted a 7-3 rain-shortened victory over the Marlins. Both teams sat through a 2-hour, 50-minute delay after the second inning. Large puddles had to be removed from the outfield, but umpires deemed the conditions safe enough to continue. The Orioles ran out of pitching after 7 1/2 innings, and play was halted. Catcher Sal Fasano singled to give the Orioles a 3-2 lead in the seventh.

OKLAHOMA CITY - Bruce Chen threw five more scoreless innings last night, this time against the regular-season lineup of the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals. Yet his sterling performance didn't make a difference in his quest to make the starting rotation. Before the game, Orioles manager Lee Mazzilli took Chen, 27, aside and told him he had already won the club's vacant fifth starter spot no matter what he did on the mound yesterday. "I am very happy," Chen said. "I came to spring training and worked real hard and wanted to show them I could help them win. It's a good opportunity."

Finding it easier to reconstruct part of their bullpen than plug a hole at first base, the Orioles signed veteran reliever Steve Reed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract yesterday with an option for 2006. Reed, who turns 39 in March, led the Colorado Rockies with a 3.68 ERA last year, going 3-8 in 65 games. He tied former Oriole closer Lee Smith's record by appearing in 50 or more games for the 12th consecutive season. In 13 major league seasons, Reed is 48-42 with a 3.51 ERA and ranks 29th on baseball's all-time list 803 career appearances.
