Free-agent pitcher Kevin Millwood reached a preliminary agreement on a five-year, $60 million contract with Texas, giving the Rangers the legitimate No. 1 starter they have been seeking. Texas can void the fifth year of the deal if Millwood doesn't pitch a certain number of innings in earlier years of the contract. Millwood, who had drawn interest from the Orioles, is expected to undergo a physical today, and the deal likely will be finalized tomorrow. Details of the deal were disclosed by two people familiar with negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract had not been finalized.

In a game the Blast desperately needed to win, it administered Philadelphia's worst defeat of the season last night at 1st Mariner Arena. Machel Millwood produced the Blast's fourth hat trick, and five other players scored to stop a six-game road winning streak by the KiXX, 19-12, before 5,072. The point total was the highest surrendered by first-place Philadelphia (10-6), which entered the night with the fewest average points allowed (9.5 per game) in the Major Indoor Soccer League. The previous high against the KiXX was 15 by the Milwaukee Wave on Jan. 6. Thus, the Blast (8-9)

It's easy to understand why the Blast didn't go into Saturday's night's game against the Rochester Lancers with any added motivation. Playing against the same team - an inferior one - on consecutive nights and for the third time in a span of five days didn't exactly promote enthusiasm. On top of that, the Lancers' game plan was geared on packing it in defensively to further frustrate the Blast. At least temporarily. The Blast stayed patient and broke open a close game with nine unanswered points in the second half to secure a 15-5 win in front of an announced 4,765 at 1st Mariner Arena . The win gives the Blast eight straight at home to start the season, breaking the franchise mark of seven set by the 1993-93 Baltimore Spirit.

Machel Millwood is not enjoying another round of injury rehabilitation, but at least the timing and nature of the ailment suit the Blast and its second-year forward. Millwood has been out since suffering knee and ankle injuries in a 12-5 victory over St. Louis on Nov. 19. After having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee Dec. 8, he could return for the Dec. 30 game against the visiting Philadelphia KiXX. "There's going to be a pain factor for the rest of the season. It's indoor and it's constant throbbing [in the knee]

ATLANTA -- Judging by the way Kevin Millwood was using his fastball in the first inning yesterday, Orioles manager Ray Miller jumped to the obvious conclusion that the Atlanta right-hander wanted to come after his club."

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -Little drama remained as the Blast entered the fourth quarter of last night's game against the Massachusetts Twisters. With Baltimore's 10th victory all but complete, the only uncertainty was whether the Blast would eclipse the 20-point mark - one it had surpassed in three previous meetings with the Twisters.That was accomplished quickly as the Blast poured in three goals in the first five minutes of the final quarter as it routed the Twisters, 23-9, at the Eastern States Coliseum.

Orioles starter Kris Benson estimated the difference between a satisfying victory and a grueling defeat last night at 4 feet. A groundball by Gary Matthews barely eluded the glove of Orioles third baseman Melvin Mora. A ground ball by Mark DeRosa barely fell fair. Both Texas Rangers players scored on fourth-inning sacrifice flies, the lone blemishes on Benson's line. Instead of enjoying a shutout, Benson was forced to swallow a 2-1 loss in front of 28,201 at Camden Yards, where Texas starter Kevin Millwood kept the Orioles' offense in its second-half slumber.

The Blast offense has been offering hints recently that it was ready to flourish, and last night it happened. By halftime, both Denison Cabral and Machel Millwood had produced hat tricks, the team's first of the season, and the Orlando Sharks never had a chance, falling to the onslaught, 25-13, before an announced 9,606, the second-biggest crowd of the season, at 1st Mariner Arena.

In Jamaica, soccer is king and Machel Millwood was one of its most loyal subjects. "It's like the No. 1 sport with, maybe, cricket," said Millwood, whose speed, skills and athleticism have made the Towson University forward one of the Colonial Athletic Association's premier players. "You go to a high school soccer game there, you'll have more people than at a MLS [Major League Soccer] game here." When Millwood left Kingston for College Park in 1996, he was a member of the Jamaican under-17 national team and so advanced in the sport that the high school game in Prince George's County was easy pickings.

Good teams find ways to win against a lesser opponent even when they may not be on top of their game. So the Blast, which came into Friday's game against last-place Wichita undefeated and averaging more than 15-plus points per game, had that task when its usually precise offense was mostly absent. Two goals a minute apart at the end of the third quarter and start of the fourth proved the answer as the Blast shook the pesky, defensive-minded Wings, 10-6, in front of an announced 6,624 at 1st Mariner Arena . The Blast (8-0)

Admittedly, Chris Davis is not really a fan of being a designated hitter. But he is a fan of playing regularly. And now that Jim Thome is on the shelf for roughly a month, Davis is back at DH, and he's getting used to it. In the 10 games that Thome has been out, Davis has started nine at DH. He's had nine hits in 33 at-bats (.273 average) during that span, heading into Tuesday. "I have figured it out, because I know I didn't have another choice," said Davis, who has started 29 games at DH, 38 at first base, 11 in left field and 15 in right this season.

One of the promotions at 1st Mariner Arena this season involves the Blast's cheerleaders passing out free Snickers bars after every goal for the home team. The cheerleaders were busy Wednesday night, and the announced crowd of 2,316 left filled up as the Blast dominated the overmatched Norfolk SharX, 26-4, in a rare mid-week game. The win clinches home-field advantage for the Blast (14-4) in the Major Indoor Soccer League's Eastern Division final with six games remaining in the regular season.

Right-hander Kevin Millwood, who was the Orioles' Opening Day starter last season, is now in Irvine, Calif., working out and waiting for a job. For the past week, Millwood, 36, has been training at a Southern California facility run by his agent, Scott Boras. Millwood works out every morning, running, lifting weights and throwing. Every two to three days he has thrown a bullpen side session, and he expects to pitch to college hitters next week. "I am just kind of keeping going, staying in shape and getting my arm ready to go when something does happen," Millwood said.

There was 3:02 left in the second period last Friday when P.J. Wakefield saw rookie Machel Millwood running free out of the Blast's defensive zone and lofted the ball over the heads of the Milwaukee Wave's defenders to the Blast's streaking forward. Millwood barely missed a step as he took control of the ball and sprinted toward the Milwaukee goal, arms and legs flying. He saw Wave goalie Dan Green, but kept his concentration on the ball, lifting it perfectly beyond the keeper and into the net for what at the time was a 3-0 Blast lead.

At Towson University, Machel Millwood was the real deal, a forward so dominating offensively that soccer coach Frank Olszewski said he "would have scored goals if he was playing on a beach." With the Blast, Machel (pronounced Michelle) Millwood has been a big steal, a player originally drafted by the now-defunct San Diego Sockers who had no interest in the indoor game nor in living half the year on the West Coast - nearly 3,000 miles away from his Prince George's County home. Now, at 27, he is becoming a star in the Major Indoor Soccer League, leading the Blast in scoring with 46 points and feeling much more comfortable about performing within the confines of an arena.

It wasn't going to erase six months of struggles, of coping with a bloated ERA and a mounting loss total, of trying to succeed while getting very little offensive or defensive support. But just as a small reward for how Kevin Millwood has handled himself during the most difficult season of his professional career and for the leadership he provided to the Orioles' young arms, pitching coach Rick Kranitz desperately wanted the veteran starter to get one more out wednesday night.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has a well-earned reputation as a meticulous planner and he's undoubtedly already started prioritizing the list of things that will need to turn around for his new club to become a factor again in the American League East. His team's inability to finish off an opponent, to close out sweeps when given the opportunity may not be on top of that list simply because just winning series, particularly ones on the road, has been a giant challenge for the Orioles.
