Former Orioles pitcher Rick Sutcliffe had every intention of heading home for the 1992 season, and why not? His roots - and his family - were in the Kansas City area, where he grew up within a short drive of Royals Stadium. He had already accomplished quite a lot during the first 13 years of his major league career, and he figured the time was right to spend the rest of that career sleeping in his own bed after home games. Maybe it's true that life is what happens while you're making other plans, because Sutcliffe's lifeplan changed with one phone call from an old friend and a brief visit to an unfinished stadium in a place he had never heard of called Camden Yards.

As he transitioned back into a relief role for the American League Division Series, Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman said he was ready for whatever role manager Buck Showalter had in store for him. Gausman was called to make his postseason debut in Friday afternoon's ALDS Game 2 with a critical task: Halt a Detroit Tigers offensive onslaught. After left-hander Wei-Yin Chen allowed five runs in the fourth inning, the 23-year-old Gausman entered with a runner on second base and two outs, then struck out Ian Kinsler swinging on a 98 mph fastball..

The start times for the Orioles' first two American League Division Series games at Camden Yards were announced Monday evening, contingent on the outcomes of both wild-card games. The Orioles and the Detroit Tigers will open the postseason with the early game Thursday. If the Kansas City Royals win Tuesday's American League wild-card game, the game will start at 5:37 p.m. And the start will be pushed back 30 minutes to 6:07 p.m. if the Oakland Athletics win the wild-card game. The start of Game 2, which will be Friday, depends on the outcome of the National League wild-card game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Francisco Giants.

By Alan Mills' count, it won't take much to drop his ERA below its current stratospheric 18.00."All I need to get it down to 2.00 is 32 innings without a run. I can do that," said Mills. "If I get just five, I cut it in half."It's not as if Mills and the other five relievers who make up the Baltimore bullpen won't get the work necessary to lower their ERAs.Orioles manager Johnny Oates said he intends to keep the starting pitchers more closely to a pitch count than he has in the past.Oates so far has shown no hesitation in going to his relievers early and often.

The idea of giving Rick Sutcliffe extra starts down the stretch seemed to be a pretty good one at the time for a couple of reasons.Sutcliffe is the only Orioles starter to have done that in a pennant race and, with a little luck, he might have been able to reach 20 wins.But now the numbers, and perhaps the calendar, suggest that the grand experiment of working Sutcliffe on just three days' rest, as opposed to the normal four, may go by the wayside, along with the Orioles' flagging pennant hopes.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- It took 17 games for an Orioles starting pitcher to get banged around -- and when it finally happened, yesterday to Rick Sutcliffe in the fourth inning, the inclement conditions might have had something to do with it."I don't want to make excuses, because the footing was bad for their pitchers, too," Sutcliffe said after the Orioles lost, 5-0, to the Texas Rangers in a game shortened to 5 1/2 innings by steady rain."I felt lucky just to get my work in," said Sutcliffe, a veteraright-hander.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Ben McDonald still takes his morning runs at spring training, sometimes with Arthur Rhodes, sometimes by himself. "I'm trying to keep the tradition," McDonald said yesterday. "It worked the last few years. Why quit now?"The tradition started with Rick Sutcliffe -- once around the fields at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota, or the lake at Miller-Huggins Complex in St. Petersburg. But this spring, McDonald's lonely jogs symbolize a new era for the Orioles' young pitchers.
