Orioles manager Davey Johnson didn't want to use reliever Roger McDowell against Seattle last night. Not again, not after he threw 48 pitches Friday night, not after pitching about every other day for the last month.But McDowell volunteered to pitch, as he always does. Sure enough, Johnson found himself in need of right-handed relief, and feeling he had no one else to turn to, Johnson went to McDowell. Again. For just one hitter, he hoped.That one hitter, Seattle's Jay Buhner, hit a three-run homer off McDowell, the killing blow in the Orioles' 7-3 loss to Seattle last night, before 46,434 at Camden Yards.

If there are any doubts that Bob Milacki has recaptured hi 1989 form, they don't belong to Orioles manager John Oates."He's shown that to me," Oates said after Milacki shut out thNew York Yankees, 8-0, on five hits last night. "As far as I'm concerned, he's pitching better now than he ever has."Milacki is not into self-assessment, but he's done a good job osalvaging what looked like it might be another lost season. After spending the first month of the season with Double A Hagerstown, and not joining the rotation until May 20, the righthander has become the club's top winner (9-8)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The names remained the same, but the order in which they were arranged and the results they produced changed.One game into manager Johnny Oates' new batting order, the Orioles are unbeaten.Hey, when you have the second-worst offense in the league, you take comfort where you can.The Orioles used 12 hits and a three-run seventh inning to come from behind and defeat the Kansas City Royals, 6-4, in front of 17,892 last night at Kauffman Stadium.The rally made a winner out of reliever Alan Mills (1-2)

If the numbers don't lie, the best is still ahead for the Orioles' Bob Milacki.The numbers say that in a major-league career that began late in 1988, Milacki has a 13-4 record after Aug. 1. His record before Aug. 1 is 15-22, his ERA a bloated 4.36, almost two runs above his post-Aug. 1 allowance.As he listened to the numbers after he was branded with the Orioles' 6-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers last night before 27,079 at Memorial Stadium, Milacki smiled ruefully."Maybe I finally get it together the last part of the season and finish up good," the 6-foot-4 righthander said.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- It was the morning after his most notable pitching performance, and the Baltimore Orioles' Bob Milacki still was hurting both inside and out.His right index finger remained sore and swollen from the Willie Wilson comebacker that cost him a chance to go the distance in Saturday's four-man no-hitter against the Oakland Athletics. His ego still was bruised after coming out of the game early, though he blamed no one but himself.He should have been basking in the glory of it all, but he couldn't help but feel like he got shortchanged.

He's earned this right."Oates is intent on winning the historic finale."I really want to take that game," he said.

Bob Milacki said he was not really considering the possibility of being optioned to the minor leagues while he experimented with his delivery during spring training.Now Milacki, who is commuting to Hagerstown tonight for his first start of the season, doesn't know whether he is fish or fowl."In some ways, you feel a part of the team; in some you don't," said Milacki, who was cut from the Baltimore Orioles roster the day before the opener. "When the team has a meeting, you wonder whether you should be there."

A familiar Orioles face takes the mound tonight, but he won't be out there to help the Orioles get a win.Kansas City's Bob Milacki makes his pitching debut against his former team at Kauffman Stadium.As an Orioles rookie in 1989, Milacki showed promise with 14 victories. However, shoulder problems caused him to make just 24 starts in 1990 and he finished 5-8.Although he won a team-leading 10 games in 1991, he started just 20 games in 1992 and finished 6-8.Milacki was released on Dec. 18, 1992, and his 5.84 ERA for 1992 was the third-highest in Orioles history (minimum 100 innings pitched)

CLEVELAND -- The Orioles embarked on this nine-game road trip with all the leading indicators pointing to a down-to-the-wire finish in American League East, but the prospects for a division title have diminished at every stop.The situation is now bordering on hopeless after a 6-4 loss in the opener of a three-game series against the Indians at Cleveland Stadium. The Orioles are 5 1/2 games out of first place with 12 games to play, and the '64 Phillies are not in their division.This was a series the Orioles had to sweep, but the Indians rallied from a three-run deficit with a middle-inning rush and sent the Orioles to their fifth loss in seven games on the trip.

PHOENIX -- The list of former Orioles seeking a fresh start with defending American League West champion Oakland decreased by one yesterday when the Athletics released injured left-hander Jeff Ballard.Ballard, 29, was trying to revive his career in the A's minor-league camp, but Oakland club president Sandy Alderson said Ballard is suffering from an elbow problem that might require surgery.It is not known whether the injury is related to the one that forced Ballard to undergo arthroscopic surgery for the removal of bone chips in 1989.

Free-agent right-hander Bob Milacki has agreed to terms on a minor-league contract with the Oakland Athletics and has been invited to spring training to compete for a place in their starting rotation.Milacki accepted a one-year deal worth $350,000 plus incentives to join the A's, who recently signed former Oriole Storm Davis to a two-year deal and also have added former Orioles 18-game winner Jeff Ballard to their Triple-A roster.That leaves only three free agents from the 1992 Orioles roster unsigned, including Bill Ripken, who is believed to be close to signing with an American League West team.

Bob Milacki waits. So do Sam Horn and Randy Milligan, the two other remaining victims of the Dec. 18 Orioles roster reduction that also left pitcher Mark Williamson and utility man Mark McLemore temporarily unemployed.Williamson and McLemore have re-signed with the club. Milligan and Horn apparently have been cut loose for good. Milacki waits, still holding out hope that he might rejoin the team at Twin Lakes Park next month."There still might be a chance, but I really don't know," he said Friday.

Baseball's harsh economic climate hit Baltimore where it hurts yesterday, when the Orioles released five popular players to avoid the prospect of costly salary arbitration.First baseman Randy Milligan and pitchers Bob Milacki and Mark Williamson, all major components of a four-year rebuilding program that began with the club's 1989 revival, became free agents when the club chose not to tender them 1993 contracts by last night's midnight deadline.Designated hitter Sam Horn and utility man Mark McLemore also were released as the Orioles and other clubs moved decisively to limit arbitration-driven salary increases for next year.

Bob Milacki returned triumphant yesterday from exile in Double A purgatory. Fresh off the farm team in Hagerstown, Milacki propped up the Orioles with 5 1/3 innings of one-hit relief and gained a 5-4 victory over Milwaukee for his effort.Afterward, with ice packs wrapped securely around his right shoulder, the 26-year-old pitcher sounded dutifully penitent."I'd like to get in the rotation as soon as possible," he said, in answer to a question. "But if not, I'm happy where I am."Better to be in a big-league bullpen than a minor-league pitching rotation, Milacki was saying.
