ANAHEIM, Calif. -- An MRI exam on California Angels pitcher Mark Langston's right knee yesterday showed a slight cartilage tear, but doctors won't determine until today whether the left-hander will need arthroscopic surgery.Surgery probably would result in at least a three-week stint on the disabled list for Langston, who will be examined by team physician Lewis Yocum. The other treatment option: Rest and hope the knee heals.Manager Marcel Lachemann said there's an "outside chance" Langston, scratched from Sunday's game against Minnesota, will make his next scheduled start Friday against Cleveland.

A football score one night, a soccer score the next.Only in baseball.One night after the Orioles and California Angels staged a home run derby that typified 1994 baseball, Mark Langston and Ben McDonald turned back the clock to 1968, the year of the pitcher.Langston and McDonald locked arms in a duel won by the left-hander as the Angels defeated the Orioles, 1-0, in front of 47,154 last night at Camden Yards.The start of the game was delayed 15 minutes by a brief rain shower. Langston and McDonald saw to it that neither team's offense showed up until much later.
