It was almost exactly a year ago that the Orioles left town with an 11-2 record after a successful homestand, headed to Texas and saw their world disintegrate in the form of a 26-7 loss to the Rangers.They weren't the same for months after that horrifying defeat, which illuminated their many pitching weaknesses; they played sub-.500 ball and fell out of the playoff picture until making a late rush."That [26-7] game, that was as bad as it gets," Orioles manager Davey Johnson said last night.

On the field: The morning after his first start of the year in California last week, Jamie Moyer woke up with a sore arm. But it was a good sore -- "typical spring training soreness," he said, meaning that he was getting stronger. His longest relief outing had been 3 1/3 innings, his start against the Angels lasted 3 2/3 innings, and last night, he completed seven innings.In the dugout: The first lineup posted by Orioles manager Phil Regan yesterday did not include Brady Anderson, who strained his back before Sunday's game.

Records and notes from the Orioles' 26-7 loss to the Texas Rangers:The 26 runs allowed by the Orioles was a club record, breaking the prior mark of 24. On June 26, 1978, Toronto beat the Orioles, 24-10, in a game started by Mike Flanagan. Catcher Elrod Hendricks pitched in relief.The 16 runs allowed in the eighth inning was the second-most in this century. The Boston Red Sox scored 17 against Detroit on June 18, 1953. In 1883, Chicago scored 18 against Detroit.This wasn't the first game manager Davey Johnson lost, 26-7.

Everything about Manny Alexander says he was born to play shortstop.He has the speed, the range and the arm. And his hometown, San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, is the factory outlet of shortstops, with the San Diego Padres' Tony Fernandez and the Toronto Blue Jays' Manuel Lee and Alfredo Griffin in the majors.But for now, Alexander's role is to be shortstop-in-waiting, to sit and learn from one of the best ever, Cal Ripken."This is my first time being in the big leagues," he said.

On the field: It had been nearly four weeks since Manny Alexander and Kent Mercker appeared in the field, before they entered the second game of the doubleheader yesterday in the same inning. Alexander took over second base in the sixth after Bill Ripken was ejected, just as Mercker took the mound in relief of Arthur Rhodes.In the dugout: When the managers took their lineup cards to the umpires before Game 2, Davey Johnson argued the final play of NTC Game 1 with umpire Larry Barnett. The ump had ruled Roberto Alomar out for leaving the baseline, part of a game-ending double play.

(Through Thursday's games)UPS AND DOWNSCal Ripken -- UP -- Do the White Sox really think a mere forearm smash to the nose of the Iron Man can sway the wild-card race? Hah! Next time, try kryptonite.Division title hopes -- DOWN -- Time to concentrate on holding off those Blue Jays.Brady Anderson -- UP -- He goes toe-to-toe with heavyweights in home-run hitting contest and holds his own.Camden Yards crowd -- DOWN -- They had all the energy of a debate team after Thursday night.

SEATTLE -- Orioles manager Davey Johnson is leaving Cal Ripken at shortstop for now and in the immediate future, deflating the controversy he started last week when he announced he was thinking about moving the 13-time All-Star to third base.Johnson met with Ripken early yesterday afternoon and told him that with the Orioles playing well -- 11 wins in their past 15 games, eight straight errorless games -- and B. J. Surhoff just five days away from coming off the disabled list, he was going to stay with the current alignment of Cal Ripken at shortstop and Bill Ripken at third.

Bring back running columnI have been a loyal subscriber for years to your paper, and I have appreciated the space you have allocated for local sports interests. With this said, I am upset by your decision to cancel Mike Reeb's Tuesday running column.There are thousands of runners in the area who look forward to this column. I know some who buy a paper only on Tuesday. The column did a great job of publicizing events that raised thousands of dollars for local and national charities, such as the breast cancer foundation in the Race for the Cure.
