Nobody can say the Seattle Mariners aren't consistent.Already this season, they have had a six-game losing streak and an eight-game winning streak. As they invade Memorial Stadium tonight for the start of a three-game series, the Mariners are working on a five-game losing streak.That, for Orioles fans, is the good news. The bad news is that Seattle also brings in one of the best young pitching staffs in baseball."They've got some of the best young pitchers in the game," said Orioles hitting coach Tom McCraw.

Things could get worse before they get better for the slumping Orioles.Handcuffed last night by the fifth man in Seattle's vaunted starting rotation, the Orioles face the Mariners' top gun, Erik Hanson, when the three-game series resumes tonight (7:35, HTS) at Memorial Stadium.Hanson came into his own last season, winning 18 games. The turning point came in June in Kansas City when he made "one small mechanical adjustment," according to pitching coach Mike Paul. "He was opening up his lead leg," Paul said.

It's early May, and it's way too soon to start scoreboard watching.That's what Orioles manager Johnny Oates tells himself and his players.But games such as yesterday's 8-6 win over the Seattle Mariners, before another sellout crowd of 45,352 at Oriole Park, make the mind wonder when thoughts of first place and pennants can begin."

SEATTLE -- All things considered, circumstances could be better for Dave Johnson's return to the Orioles' starting rotation.The righthander makes his first start in more than three months tonight (10:05, no TV) in the final game of the season against Seattle. Not only is Johnson testing the quicksand engulfing the Orioles' starters, he's facing the team he'd probably least like to see, in one of his least favorite parks.Johnson is 0-3 lifetime against the Mariners, with a 9.67 earned run average.

Oakland's Rick Honeycutt now has 25 notches in his belt, one for each of the major-league teams he has defeated. Only the Dodgers are missing from the list.The lefthanded reliever made the Orioles No. 25 when he worked two scoreless innings in the A's 4-3 victory yesterday. It was his first career victory over the Orioles after five reversals.Honeycutt arrived at the start of the seventh inning in relief of Bob Welch, last year's Cy Young Award winner, with the score tied, 3-3. The Orioles promptly loaded the bases with none out, but Honeycutt wriggled out unscathed.

His stuff is average at best, he has been ill with the flu this week and he hadn't beaten the Seattle Mariners in almost four years."In all honesty, if he was 18 and pitching a high school game, he probably wouldn't get signed," Baltimore Orioles manager John Oates said of him.But Roy Smith ignored all the drawbacks again last night and found the path to victory, riding a two-run homer by Cal Ripken to a 4-1 decision before 39,384 sweat-soaked fans at...

MINNEAPOLIS -- Yesterday was the fourth anniversary of one of the most significant dates in Orioles history -- and ex-manager Frank Robinson remembers it as if it were "light-years ago."It was April 29, 1988, that Mark Williamson and Dave Schmidcombined to shut out the Chicago White Sox, 9-0. That win not only kept the Orioles from going winless in April, but it also broke a record season-opening 21-game losing streak."All I remember about that game is nine runs," said Robinson, aassistant general manager with the Orioles and a press box spectator at yesterday's 5-4 win.Robinson had succeeded Cal Ripken Sr. as manager after the sixth game of the 1988 season -- and didn't record his first win until his 16th game.
