Maybe Orioles fans thought they were making a statement Tuesday when they stayed away from Camden Yards for the 10-year anniversary celebration of Cal Ripken's 2,131st consecutive game played. When only 20,729 bought tickets - and even fewer bothered to show up - on a weekday school night game against the Toronto Blue Jays, perhaps they were trying to show owner Peter Angelos their dissatisfaction with the team's inferior product. It's an understandable sentiment, but it's too bad that fans couldn't put that aside for a night to honor Ripken, one of the franchise's greatest players.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - In a season in which the Anaheim Angels proved that anything is possible, why not have Adam Kennedy emerge as the hero of the American League Championship Series? Kennedy was named Most Valuable Player after hitting three homers in yesterday's Game 5 against the Minnesota Twins, which propelled the Angels into their first World Series. A platoon player at second base, Kennedy hit .357 in the ALCS, with all five of his RBIs coming yesterday. He batted .312 in 144 regular-season games.

Fernando Valenzuela, signed last week by the Philadelphia Phillies, has agreed (reluctantly, according to one source) to participate in a hastily arranged pre-game ceremony tonight at Dodger Stadium.Valenzuela, 141-116 as a Dodger from 1980 to 1990, never was honored after being released by Los Angeles in the spring of 1991.Bitterness over the parting, which included a grievance filed against the club and later dropped, was believed to be the reason Valenzuela was not acknowledged in the same manner as other former Dodgers.

MIAMI -- The steady rain that pelted Pro Player Stadium yesterday afternoon threatened to give critics of baseball's first semitropical World Series another reason to curse the expansion era, but the weather cleared up just in time for the Florida Marlins to show the world that they just might be the best team money could buy.Driven by back-to-back homers, the Marlins pounded Orel Hershiser and the Cleveland Indians, 7-4, last night to move one step closer...

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians starter Chad Ogea made news before Game 4 by bluntly stating that Orel Hershiser cheats, a point Orioles manager Davey Johnson had raised on Saturday while complaining to umpires that the pitcher was moistening the ball by rubbing the back of his neck and going to his mouth.Ogea stunned a media gathering by saying, "I've known Orel for three years. He cheats. And just about everybody else does. Why not? He showed me how to cheat but said I couldn't use it until I was 35."

O's Mike Mussina (15-8, 3.20) vs. Indians' Orel Hershiser (14-6, 4.47)What Mussina throws: Mussina is a big-repertoire pitcher who throws a hard fastball, a cut fastball, a curveball, a changeup and a knuckle curve. His velocity is well above average and so is the location of his breaking stuff, which is a dangerous combination.Mussina of late: Enhanced his national reputation tremendously by out-dueling Seattle's Randy Johnson in a pair of Division Series starts. He was particularly overpowering in the decisive fourth game, even though he was pitching on short rest.
