The 17-inning marathon between Cleveland and Minnesota last Sunday, won by the Indians 10-9, was an official scorer's nightmare. To wit:* The game lasted six hours, 36 minutes, the longest in terms of elapsed time in the history of each franchise.* A total of 47 players participated, 24 for Minnesota.* The two teams combined to use 17 pitchers (Minnesota nine, Cleveland eight), who threw 590 pitches.* A total of 132 baseballs were used.* Twins second baseman Chuck Knoblauch was 1-for-8 and left eight runners on base.

ATLANTA -- Tom Glavine joined the Atlanta Braves in 1987, when they were the laughingstock of baseball. He wore the uniform when the Braves found respectability, and lost the World Series in 1991 and 1992. Fitting, then, that he would be the one to pitch Atlanta to a world championship.Glavine allowed one hit over eight innings, and was among the first to rush onto the field after Mark Wohlers closed out Atlanta's 1-0 victory in Game 6 of the World Series last night -- the first title for the Braves since 1957.

As always, Mr. Baseball will be lodging at the home of close friend and renown baseball performer Max Patkin, a distant cousin of the former San Diego Chicken.Your question about Hall of Fame inductees seems simple enough, but takes many paragraphs to answer this year.

Mark Williamson probably will decide within the next few days whether to accept an offer from the Orioles to play next season.The reliever is one of five players who became free agents when they weren't tendered contracts by the Orioles before the Dec. 18 deadline. They automatically became free agents, although infielder Mark McLemore since has signed a minor-league contract and received an invitation to spring training as a non-roster player.Williamson, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow May 12, appeared in only 12 games last year.

Jim Poole will be looking for positive signs that the 5 1/2 -month strike is nearing its conclusion -- and also trying to assess his immediate future.The left-handed reliever became an unrestricted free agent when the Orioles decided against making him a qualifying offer.With more than 600 players unsigned, Poole anticipates a mad scramble once the dispute is resolved."It's going to be wild," he said. "I don't think anybody knows what to expect."On the one hand, you can see the glut [of available talent]

On the day baseball gave itself a heart attack, some of us went to Sabatino's, in Little Italy, where the talk naturally got around to the sacred fundamentals of the game, such as the need for a left-handed relief pitcher and the importance of union solidarity, when Albert Carmine Isella stopped everybody with the wisdom of his years.Isella is 80 years old. He is recognized hereabouts through the various newspaper headlines as a fellow who has placed an occasional sporting wager, but he is less widely known as a union pioneer.

It almost has become a ritual. Jose Mesa makes a start, and everyone wonders if he'll ever make another for the Orioles.The question presented itself again yesterday, when Mesa gave up nine hits and five earned runs in four innings and took the fall in a 9-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals at Camden Yards.He had pitched well in his previous start, but the exception may not be enough to prove that he still belongs in the Orioles rotation. Manager Johnny Oates left open the possibility that a change could be made before Mesa's turn comes up again next week.

Five clues: Two men on base. Brad Pennington. Eutaw Street. Ken Griffey. The warehouse.Now, guess what happened.Griffey hit a Pennington fastball for a three-run home run that bounced off Eutaw Street and ricocheted off the warehouse.Brilliant deduction, Sherlock. However did you guess?Pennington threw only two pitches in the eighth inning, enough to turn him into public enemy No. 1 at Camden Yards, where most of the 46,640 in attendance howled disapprovingly as the Seattle Mariners came from behind to defeat the Orioles, 7-6.Griffey's three-run home run came on Pennington's second pitch.

For the past few weeks, all anyone has wanted to talk to Jim Poole about was his role as a member of the executive board of the Major League Baseball Players Association and his thoughts on a possible strike.In many ways, that was a good thing for Poole, since the union questions precluded any about his performance, which he regarded as subpar.However, Poole got what he hoped was the start of a string of good efforts in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cleveland Indians, working a scoreless and hitless ninth inning in a 10-4 Orioles win."

Just how have things gone lately for the Orioles?They had their best game of the season against reigning American League Most Valuable Player Frank Thomas last night, and they didn't get him out.They did keep him in the ballpark for the first time in five games, but they didn't get him out.Instead, they got themselves out, stranding nine runners in a 7-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox.Meanwhile, Thomas doubled, singled twice and was walked twice. He left the heavy work for Norberto Martin, whose first major-league home run was a ninth-inning grand slam off Orioles left-handed reliever Jim Poole (one inning, five earned runs)

The Orioles' roster of wounded grew to three yesterday when reliever Mark Williamson was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right elbow.Williamson was bothered by the problem in spring training, and it flared anew after he faced one Red Sox batter during Wednesday's 6-5 defeat in Boston. He yielded a game-winning, two-run single to Jody Reed."I woke up the next day and it was swollen," said Williamson. "So, they said to take it easy for a few days. Right now, the idea is to get the swelling down."

CLEVELAND -- Jim Poole may be closer to rejoining the Orioles than it appeared just a few days ago.The lefthanded relief pitcher, who has been on the disabled list since the start of the season with shoulder tendinitis, had his rehabilitation assignment moved from the Double-A Hagerstown Suns to the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings, where he made two appearances during the weekend."

During the off-season the Orioles committed more than $40 million to acquire Rafael Palmeiro, Sid Fernandez and Lee Smith -- and ran up a huge phone bill trying to unload Leo Gomez.Yesterday all four were principal contributors in a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners at Camden Yards. The victory was the second straight and 10th of the season for the Orioles, who matched their 1992 pace by reaching double figures in victories on the earliest date since 1969, when they did it April 21.Making his first start of the year, Gomez dumped a single into left field with one out in the eighth inning to drive in the winning run. It was the second time in a week that the deposed third baseman played a major role in an Orioles victory.
