JUST IN TERMS of baseball recognition, Jon Lieber couldn't compete with the sexier names available last November. Pedro Martinez, Carl Pavano, Derek Lowe, Matt Clement, Jaret Wright and David Wells headlined the free-agent pitching class this offseason. Then Kris Benson, a sub-.500 pitcher who hadn't made more than 25 starts since 2000, led the march toward insanity by signing a three-year, $21 million deal Nov. 20. The prices subsequently escalated, and several teams, including the Orioles, chose to hold onto their checkbooks instead of overpaying for a deep class of average starters.

So this is what it takes to beat the New York Yankees. After seven unsuccessful tries, Orioles manager Lee Mazzilli had to wonder. Then last night, his club finally experienced a breakthrough against New York's band of traveling all-stars. Somehow it seemed fitting that a trio of lesser-known players - Erik Bedard, Jason Grimsley and David Newhan - made the biggest difference, as the Orioles rolled to a 13-2 victory before 41,678 at Camden Yards. Mazzilli is on the other end of this lopsided rivalry now. His old team has a $185 million payroll, and to compete with them with a club making $55 million, it's going to take some special performances like those.
