On the field: Making his first start since Aug. 31, Kevin Bass had a double and a homer -- his first extra-base hits of any kind since July 19, and his first homer since June 17.In the dugout: Paul Menhart started against the Orioles, a week since his last start. Toronto manager Cito Gaston was cognizant of the fact that the last time Menhart started against the Orioles, on Aug. 2, he allowed one hit over eight innings -- losing to Mike Mussina, 1-0, when Harold Baines hit a homer.In the clubhouse: Scott Erickson had so much movement on his sinking fastball as he warmed up that bullpen catcher Sammy Snider had a tough time hanging on. "I've had the same stuff all along," Erickson said.

NEW YORK -- When the Orioles contacted Kevin Bass' agent on April 13 to begin negotiations that would conclude successfully 24 hours later, Bass was nervous about going to a new league with new parks and new pitchers.He had played almost his entire career in the National League, and at 35, Bass felt emotions that rookies feel.A month into his AL experience, Bass continues to feel like a rookie, but the feelings are good. He loves the freshness of everything, seeing new faces, playing a style of baseball new to him.And, at a time when Bass figured he would be strictly a part-time player, he has been in the lineup far more than he could have imagined.

The New York Yankees accused Seattle's Randy Johnson of intentionally throwing at Jim Leyritz last week. Maybe the Yankees shouldn't complain: The way Johnson is throwing this year, getting drilled by a pitch could be a hitter's best shot at getting on base.The 6-foot-10 Johnson pitching against the Orioles at Camden Yards last night looked entirely like something you see in Little League, the kid who hit puberty early and dominates his overmatched and undersized -- and possibly terrified -- peers.

SEATTLE -- Ken Griffey was in a local hospital recovering from surgery, Randy Johnson was in the Mariners' dugout resting between starts. What an opportunity for the Orioles to end their three-game losing streak.Overcoming another poor start by left-hander Sid Fernandez, the Orioles overpowered the Mariners, 11-4, with 16 hits last night.Shortstop Cal Ripken had four hits, third baseman Jeff Manto mashed a three-run homer and Kevin Bass had a critical pinch-hit single for the Orioles. It was only the second time since May 4 that the Orioles won a game started by a pitcher other than Mike Mussina or Kevin Brown.
