  SARASOTA, Fla. -- Roughly a dozen years after he fled the Orioles for the greener pastures of the rival New York Yankees, leaving behind a bitter fan base and a franchise that hasn't been competitive since, Mike Mussina will return to Baltimore this summer to be inducted into the club's Hall of Fame. The Orioles announced Wednesday that Mussina, who pitched 10 of his 18 big league seasons with the club, and former infielder Rich Dauer, whose entire 10-year career was spent in Baltimore, will be inducted into their Hall during an on-field ceremony Saturday, Aug. 25, at Camden Yards.

Mike Mussina won't get to decide whether his cap on a Hall of Fame plaque features a bird or the "NY" logo that can make Baltimore fans want to flip the bird. That call is up to the poohbahs of Cooperstown. But listen up, you guys, it should be an Oriole. Mike Mussina became Mike Mussina in Baltimore. Let's run some numbers: He spent 10 of his 18 major league seasons here. He recorded 147 of his 270 victories and 1,535 of his 2,813 strikeouts as an Oriole. All but eight of his 23 career shutouts came in orange and black.

Mike Mussina will finish the season stuck on 19 wins for the third time in his career. Some might believe Mussina is karmically destined to fall just short of pitching greatness. He has not won 20, thrown a no-hitter, pitched for a world champion or picked up a Cy Young Award. But I don't think the former Oriole is cursed. It's just hard to win three times in four starts, especially when two of his likely opponents - the Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago White Sox - are playoff contenders fighting for position.

He has four starts left and little room for error, but when Mike Mussina walks off the mound for the final time this season, it will be as a 20-game winner, a career first. Mussina needs three wins to reach that plateau and to notch 270 victories in his career. Nice symmetry. Twice - both times with the Orioles - he flirted with 20, only to fall one win short. Three times he won 18. He has paid his dues, and the stars are aligned. In his past two games, he beat the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox, so it's obvious he isn't running on fumes.

A recap of the Orioles' 11-6 win over the Red Sox last night: It takes three The Orioles trailed 4-0 heading into the bottom of the second, and it appeared that a three-game sweep was inevitable. But they scored three times in the inning, four more in the fourth and three more in the fifth. Ramon Hernandez landed the big blow in the third with a three-run homer off David Aardsma. Melvin Mora did the honors in the fourth, depositing a pitch by Javier Lopez into the left-field seats for a three-run shot of his own. Remember him?

NEW YORK - Mike Mussina's reincarnation as a soft-tossing right-hander has produced impressive results. He entered last night with 13 wins, one off the American League lead, and had allowed two earned runs or fewer in 13 of his previous 17 outings. It seems that everyone is impressed by the transformation - except his former team. The Orioles knocked around Mussina for the second time this season en route to their best offensive game in nearly two years. They pounded out 17 hits and belted four home runs in a 13-4 rout of the New York Yankees before an announced 54,120 at Yankee Stadium.
