KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- John Oates says he is more than satisfied with the first two starts by Jose Mesa."He's been very firm -- much better than decent," the Orioles manager said of the right-hander who is working on an erratic schedule during the early weeks of the season.Mesa pitched 5 1/3 solid innings in a 3-1 loss to Toronto April 12, then worked 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday night's 10-4 win over the Kansas City Royals. Mesa is the odd pitcher out whenever the Orioles have an off-day.It is a role that many young pitchers have had trouble adjusting to in the past.

The Baltimore Orioles have turned almost entirely to the promise of youth, and -- finally -- they are beginning to see some promising results.Rookie right-hander Mike Mussina held the Texas Rangers to three hits over eight innings on the way to his first major-league victory and rookie outfielder Chito Martinez hit two home runs as the Orioles scored a 10-2 victory last night at Memorial Stadium.That's four straight victories and all of them at home for the club that began the week with the worst home record in baseball.

The way Orioles pitching coach Al Jackson sees it, the young man had a training camp worthy of an old pro.Jose Mesa, 24, with only 62 days of major-league seasoning spread over four years, will oppose Chicago's Greg Hibbard when the Orioles play their second game of the year tonight (7:35, HTS) at Memorial Stadium. Mesa's major-league experience consists of only 78 innings."He had a spring typical of an old pro," Jackson said. "He was behind the others during the first half, but he got better and better.

The Mariners will pitch lefthander Randy Johnson (2-2, 4.94 ERA) in pursuit of a Seattle sweep.Mesa (1-3, 3.33) gets the call for the Orioles, who travel to Rochester for a Thursday exhibition game before launching a nine-game road trip to the West Coast on Friday.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Frank Robinson wouldn't say exactly which lineup he'll use in tonight's series finale against the California Angels (10:35, no TV)."I don't know what I'm going to do between now and tomorrow [tonight]," said Robinson, who introduced a new-look lineup in yesterday's 6-4 loss.Robinson moved Dwight Evans, who had been hitting fourth or fifth, into the second spot and put Randy Milligan in the cleanup spot against lefthander Jim Abbott. "It's a move designed to possibly help make the hitters feel more comfortable," Robinson said.

CLEVELAND -- The booing of Roberto Alomar stopped at Jacobs Field late yesterday afternoon, giving way to a stunned silence after the Orioles second baseman led off the 12th inning with a home run in a series-clinching, 4-3 victory.The mood outside was downright festive, though, compared with the one in the Cleveland Indians' clubhouse. Forget being able to hear a pin drop. If you listened hard enough, you could hear their dreams hitting the floor.Infielder Jeff Kent sat facing his locker, his head bowed.

As amazing as this year has been for the Cleveland Indians, it could be said that the turning point came when the decision was made to play the 1995 season.When a team is 50 games over .500 with three weeks to play, there obviously haven't been any critical periods. However, manager Mike Hargrove and pitching coach Mark Wiley can point to one game that boosted the Indians to their current level.The date was May 20 and the Indians staged a late rally that would become their trademark, scoring four runs in the eighth inning to take a 7-5 lead over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
