June 9, 1993: Mark McLemore's five hits tie a club record and help the Orioles to their seventh straight victory, 7-4 over the Oakland Athletics.

Orioles center fielder Luis Matos struck out looking with the go-ahead run at second base yesterday, and the St. Louis Cardinals held on for a 4-3 victory at Roger Dean Stadium. Julian Tavarez picked up the save, but not before Brian Roberts singled with two outs to score Jose Bautista and move the tying run to third base. Roberts stole second before Matos went down. Orioles pitcher John Maine took the loss after allowing a run-scoring double to Marlon Anderson with two outs in the seventh that broke a 2-2 tie. Bo Hart homered off Orioles pitcher Mike DeJean in the eighth - his first extra-base hit of the spring.

Manny Alexander wants to get to the major leagues and he wants to play shortstop, but in order to reach the first goal, he might have to table the second.The organization plans to use him some at second base for Triple-A Rochester, an idea that does not appeal to Alexander."I don't want to, but if they put me there I have to," Alexander said. "I never played second base in my life. I'm a shortstop."Alexander, who had a skin tumor removed from his leg early in spring training, leaves for extended spring training in Florida on Saturday, where he is scheduled to remain for about two weeks before being assigned to Rochester.

Scheduled starter Sid Fernandez may not pitch for the Orioles tonight in Toronto because of an injury he believes he suffered in his last start.Fernandez feels pain in his right side, which may be due to a muscle strain in his rib cage.If Fernandez doesn't start tonight, the Orioles will send Mike Oquist to the mound.Oquist's last start was Sunday, a dismal afternoon that saw him exit the game in the third inning, which ended with six Minnesota Twins runs being charged to him.After the 10-4 loss, Oquist desperately needs a decent outing to help out his cause.

On his way to batting practice the other day, Mark McLemore ran into Minnesota Twins center fielder Kirby Puckett, who was heading back to his cage from a stint in the Orioles' indoor batting cage.And as baseball players are wont to do, Puckett engaged McLemore in some light-hearted banter about his new found prowess in the outfield."What's up, Mac? What's up, left field, right field, center field? What's next, man? You gonna pitch?" quipped Puckett.No, pitching isn't in the offing for McLemore, but if he could handle throwing from the mound with the same aplomb which he's tackled the outfield, who knows?

If Cal Ripken was into proving other people wrong, he could have taken care of a lot of them with his performance last night in the Orioles' rain-interrupted 8-6 victory over the Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards.Starting with Indians manager Mike Hargrove, who ordered an intentional walk to Harold Baines right before Ripken hit a tie-breaking three-run homer in the third inning.Ending with about everyone in the Baltimore/Washington area, who thought that his days as baseball's top power-hitting shortstop had come to an end when his home-run swing disappeared midway through the 1992 season.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Mark McLemore listened when the Yankees called this winter to say they needed a utility infielder to be their new Luis Sojo. He listened to the Red Sox, too, when general manager Theo Epstein caught him attending to his twin businesses in Dallas: Mac's Auto and Video and McLemore Motors. At age 39, with three kids and a wife with an interior design business, McLemore is set up for his post-baseball life. A gadget lover and high-energy guy, McLemore could move on now. He could hook you up with stereo equipment.

Seattle players listed first 1B John Olerud vs. Tino Martinez: Last year at this time, there were whispers that Martinez was on his way out of New York. He was washed up. His bat speed was down. He would be traded to make way for a younger player. This year, he's coming off an outstanding season (34 HRs, 113 RBIs) and could be a popular free agent in November. Steady Olerud had another solid season (.302, 95 RBIs) and hits for a better average. Both are good defensive players. Neither had a huge impact in the divisional round of the playoffs.

This time, instead of retreating, the Orioles made a stand. Instead of beating themselves, they allowed the Seattle Mariners to drop a three-run lead before putting the winning run on base with a walk. This time, the Orioles made off with a 4-3 win before 37,262 at Camden Yards because starting pitcher Sidney Ponson gave a mature performance and Mariners second baseman Mark McLemore made a rash read on a ninth-inning ground ball that became a game-ending mistake. Completing an encouraging comeback, the Orioles beat the Mariners when B.J. Surhoff's grounder short-hopped a charging McLemore and skipped into right field, allowing pinch runner Delino DeShields to score from second base.

NEW YORK -- The sigh of relief was audible from the Bronx to the Bowery. The New York Yankees rallied from a three-run deficit last night to score a 5-4 extra-inning victory over the Texas Rangers and avert a disastrous two-game home sweep in the best-of-five American League Division Series.Texas third baseman Dean Palmer, who was one of the heroes of the Rangers' victory the night before, picked up a sacrifice bunt by Charlie Hayes in the 12th inning and bounced the throw past first base to allow rookie Derek Jeter to score the run that salvaged a split at Yankee Stadium.

Sid Fernandez goes after his second straight win as the Orioles close out their West Coast road trip tonight against the Oakland A's.The Orioles, coming off last night's 9-1 victory, also will be trying to close the 2 1/2 -game gap on first-place Boston. But making up ground in the potent American League East isn't easy. Last night, only Detroit lost among the five AL East clubs.Fernandez (1-0, 2.29) will be making his fourth start of the year after opening the season on the disabled list because of shoulder tendinitis.

The issue is Bill Ripken, who, if you can believe it, doesn't want to be called Billy anymore because . . .What? It makes him seem less mature?Look, if maturity were the determining factor in deciding your name, Bill Ripken could go by Wayne or Garth and star in his own movie, dude. Bill's World would do as well.But the issue isn't Bill/Billy's name. It's him. The thing about young Bill is that people either love him or hate him. And with good cause.Some suggest that the only reason he's in the big leagues at all is because of his last name and certain influential relatives who share it. These people say the Orioles are stuck with him because if they dump Bill, then brother Cal, in a deep snit, takes off when his contract ends this year.

Night in and night out, there's a man in uniform hustling all over the field for the Orioles.Too bad it's the groundskeeper.Paul "MVP" Zwaska has his crew laying down the tarp with an intensity rarely shown by the players under clear skies.Actually, our heroes sprung to life last night in the second inning of Game 2 of their doubleheader against Texas.It took a vicious bolt of lightning, followed by a deafening thunderclap, but the Orioles were not to be denied.First baseman Rafael Palmeiro signaled with his thumb, "I'm out of here," then led the charge off the field as the downpour began.
