SEATTLE - In recent years, the Orioleshave experienced plenty of these games in September, when a contender demolishes and demoralizes an overmatched also-ran playing out the string. Almost exclusively, though, the Orioles were on the wrong end of those beatings. Not now, however. Not in this crazy season. The upstart Orioles pounded the Seattle Mariners, 10-4, Monday night, amassing 15 hits and chasing starter Hector Noesi with just one out in the second inning. “Everybody is kind of just picking the next guy up. If someone doesn't get it done, the next guy does,” said first baseman Mark Reynolds.

In a meeting hardly anyone could have imagined a few years back, BALCO founder Victor Conte and World Anti-Doping Agency chairman Dick Pound sat down yesterday for their first face-to-face discussion about doping in sports. During the two-hour meeting in New York, they didn't discuss specific cases or name names, but had what both termed a frank conversation they hope will lead to a more productive relationship. "We talked about ... his thoughts on how we could get better at what we do," Pound said.
