As another reporter approached Aaron Ledesma yesterday, ready to heap more plaudits on the infielder, reliever Randy Myers couldn't resist getting in a dig."Why don't you ask him why he didn't bunt in the fifth inning?" Myers said, alluding to Ledesma's grounder to shortstop that led to Brady Anderson's being tagged out in a rundown between second and third. Ledesma, sitting in front of the locker beside Myers, just shook his head and continued to remove his spikes."Out of everybody, he's been keeping me down, boy," Ledesma said.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- It's one thing to lose to an expansion team. It's even worse to have the guys you donated do the heavy lifting.The Tampa Bay Devil Rays' gain became the Orioles' pain yesterday, when Baltimore exiles Esteban Yan and Aaron Ledesma made significant contributions to their new team's 4-3 win at Tropicana Field. Yan gained the decision with two shutout innings in middle relief. Starting at second base, Ledesma reached base in each of three plate appearances and contributed a stolen base to go with his two hits.

Over the past two days, Aaron Ledesma has given the Orioles the helping hand, and timely bat, they were seeking when they called him up from Triple-A Rochester on July 15.In back-to-back games against the Anaheim Angels this weekend at Camden Yards, Ledesma's presence put the Orioles in a position to prevail.It first happened Saturday night in the Orioles' seven-run sixth inning that paved the way to a 10-9 victory. With two outs and the bases loaded, Ledesma fouled off six pitches in an 11-pitch at-bat, finally walking to force in the first run of the inning.

CANTON, Ohio -- No matter how hard the Canton Invaders tried, the Baltimore Spirit wasn't about to let them back into their National Professional Soccer League game yesterday.Baltimore held on, despite being outscored 12-6 in the fourth quarter, for a 22-21 win over the Invaders.Kevin Sloan sealed the Spirit's second win of the season over the Invaders with a back post shot that sailed over the head of Canton sixth attacker Doug Swanson at 13:19.Carlos Ledesma hit an unassisted three-point goal 14 seconds later to pull Canton within one, but the Baltimore defense held for the final minute.

On the field: Harold Baines, mired in a 4-for-33 slump in his past 12 games before last night, came within a few feet of a home run in his first three at-bats. He twice drove Kansas City center fielder Johnny Damon to the warning track, and did the same with right fielder Jermaine Dye. Damon made a leaping grab at the fence in front of the Orioles' bullpen in the seventh inning.In the dugout: With Roberto Alomar unable to play because of tightness in his right groin muscle, manager Davey Johnson started Aaron Ledesma at second base.

PHOENIX -- The Orioles took a triple hit in yesterday's expansion draft when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays chose right-handed pitcher Esteban Yan with the 18th overall pick, the Arizona Diamondbacks selected outfielder Dave Dellucci in the second round and the Devil Rays took infielder Aaron Ledesma in the third round.Though the losses don't affect the Orioles' outlook for next season, they did deprive the club of significant depth that might have contributed in 1999.Yan, 23, enjoyed a dominant minor-league season as he shifted from the bullpen to the rotation at Triple-A Rochester, striking out 131 in 119 innings.

Even within a quiet clubhouse, Aaron Ledesma's presence is noticeably understated. On the road, he sometimes lockers next to Cal Ripken. At home, he is assigned the cubicle next to closer Randy Myers, whose verbal sparring is almost as dangerous as the stun gun he keeps in his space. Ledesma grins and bears it because it's the rookie thing to do.Ledesma's July promotion from Triple-A Rochester represented a footnote to a club that has led its division from Day 1. But as October approaches, Ledesma's role has become much more than as a bit player.

On the field: Second base was a productive place for the Orioles. Starter Roberto Alomar banged three hits before Aaron Ledesma pinch-ran for him in the fifth inning. Ledesma contributed two hits of his own. Alomar emerged from the game unscathed despite going from first to third in the first inning and then unsuccessfully trying to tag on Geronimo Berroa's fly ball.In the dugout: Davey Johnson gave Jeffrey Hammonds a second consecutive game off, staying with the adventuresome Berroa in right field.

David Henry Hwang's "M. Butterfly" is a remarkable play in at least three respects: The truth-is-stranger-than-fiction mystery that forms the core of the plot; the ability of an abhorrently chauvinistic and misguided protagonist to win the audience's understanding and possibly sympathy; and the way it interweaves the yin-and-yang themes of male vs. female, Occident vs. Orient and fantasy vs. reality.Two out of three of these are a clear miss in director Jim Petosa's production at Olney Theatre Center.
