The Orioles have officially recalled right-hander Steve Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk. Johnson, a St. Paul's alum, is 3-5 with a 2.73 ERA in 14 games (nine starts) for the Tides. The 24-year-old right-hander is the son of former Orioles pitcher Dave Johnson, who pitched for the club from 1989 to '91. They become the sixth father-son duo to play for the Orioles, joining Bob and Terry Kennedy, Don and Damon Buford, John O'Donoghue Sr. and John O'Donoghue Jr., Dave and Derrick May and Tim Raines Sr. and Tim Raines Jr. Johnson spent most of the season as a starter, but really excelled once he moved to the bullpen because of Norfolk's crowded rotation.

Having grown up around Orioles baseball, Steve Johnson's dream was always to play for his hometown team. That dream came true Sunday, when the St. Paul's alum was told he was being recalled by the Orioles. His first call was to his father, former Orioles pitcher Dave Johnson. "I think we were both shocked," Johnson said. "I was still in shock and he was definitely in shock. "Growing up, with my dad playing for them, and being around them and following them, being a fan, even when I was with the Dodgers, that's why I signed back with them this year.

Rick Krivda doesn't want to be known as a seven-inning pitcher. But if he can duplicate the seven innings he threw last night often enough, there will be few losses and no regrets.Krivda faced one batter over the minimum for seven innings, pitching the Bowie Baysox to a 2-1 Eastern League victory over the Reading Phillies at Memorial Stadium.The 23-year-old left-hander held Reading to two hits, and did not allow a runner to get as far as second base, but left in the eighth because of the Orioles' organizational edict on pitch counts.

The good-luck baseball card was where it should be, where it has been most of his pro career -- in his back pocket.John O'Donoghue, though, was clearly on unfamiliar ground -- on a major-league mound, facing big-league hitters, in the heat of an early-summer pennant race.The major-league debut of the Orioles' 24-year-old pitching prospect was no overnight success story.But when O'Donoghue walked off the mound in the middle of the seventh inning yesterday, trailing the New York Yankees, 6-3, he had done his job. Which was to keep the Orioles in the game long enough to give them a chance to win.It was for that reason that another sellout crowd at Camden Yards gave the young left-hander a standing ovation, that Rick Sutcliffe met him at the top step of the dugout with the words, "Good job."

Like Jeffrey Hammonds last week, Anthony Telford caught a flight from Rochester, N.Y., to Baltimore that was uncomfortable and not nearly long enough for him to catch a nap.But unlike Hammonds, who has settled in nicely with the Orioles, Telford, a reliever called up yesterday from the Triple-A Red Wings to replenish an overused bullpen, is certain his travel plans will include a return trip to Rochester."

The Orioles beefed up their roster yesterday, recalling reliever Brad Pennington and first baseman Paul Carey and welcoming veteran Lonnie Smith to Baltimore.The additions give manager Johnny Oates added depth in several key areas. Pennington is the extra left-hander who could free up Jim Poole for more innings. Carey gives the club extra left-handed power. Smith, acquired Wednesday for two minor-league players, will be a pinch hitter, part-time designated hitter and part-time outfielder.

The Bowie Baysox didn't get nearly as much use out of Memorial Stadium as the Orioles did, and they still have at least one more game to play there, an Eastern League semifinal this week.But as their parent club did in October 1991, the Baysox ended their regular season at the old ballpark with a loss, 9-6 to the Albany-Colonie Yankees yesterday before 5,501.All in all, the Baysox, who are expected to move into a 10,000-seat stadium in Prince George's County next season, proclaimed their experience at Memorial Stadium a success.

The Orioles aren't likely to make a trade before tonight's midnight waiver deadline, but it won't be from lack of effort. Rickey Henderson is the focus of their latest attempt to swing a blockbuster deal. The whole thing seems unlikely, but for once, it's the thought that counts.General manager Roland Hemond confirmed the Orioles' pursuit of Henderson last night, saying he spoke "several times" yesterday with Oakland general manager Sandy Alderson in an attempt to keep Henderson from landing with Toronto.

Bielecki stretches out for promotionROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The seventh-inning stretch has a new meaning for Rochester Red Wings pitcher Mike Bielecki.Bielecki, a right-hander from Dundalk, has extended himself into the seventh only once in five Triple-A starts as he continues his comeback from elbow surgery, which was performed last July 31."The only thing I have to prove is that I'm physically capable of starting a game in the big leagues and keeping the team in the game for seven or eight innings," he said.
