A different sort of countdown now preoccupies the bruised Orioles. What once was a far-fetched hope for running down the American League wild card has been replaced by counting the number of games remaining in their lost season.Yesterday's 5-2, 11-inning loss to the Detroit Tigers before 44,474 at Camden Yards featured two costly base-running blunders, a curiously abbreviated start by Ricky Bones, a lack of timely hitting and another round of mumbled questions about managerial tactics.The loss left the Orioles with a split of their four-game series, dropping them to 4-3 this season against the American League's worst team.

Ricky Bones -- UP -- Almost anonymous in long relief, Bones entered the weekend carrying the Orioles' only sub-4.00 ERA. Yeah, he surrendered last Sunday's grand slam to Jason Giambi, but nobody's perfect, especially on this staff. Is there a start in his future?Clubhouse meetings -- DOWN -- Manager Ray Miller already has held two, not a good sign in April. Miller emerged Tuesday insisting he hadn't apologized for Sunday's food-throwing, fist-flying tirade. Asked by one player to "let the players play," Miller made only one player substitution the next three games.

In a slump himself, Ben McDonald should be looking forward to facing a team that has lost 11 in a row.Unless it's the Milwaukee Brewers, that is.McDonald takes a 2-6 lifetime mark against Milwaukee into tonight's series opener with the faltering Brewers at County Stadium. Only Toronto has beaten him as often.The 26-year-old right-hander has surrendered 74 hits and 30 earned runs in 72 2/3 innings against Milwaukee. McDonald went 1-1 against the Brewers last year, but the Orioles only provided seven runs in those three starts.

MILWAUKEE -- Two long streaks ended and one endured last night at County Stadium, home of thousands of empty seats and one awful major-league baseball team.For a change, Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro didn't get a hit and most of his teammates did in a 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers, witnessed by 10,849 fans, including a large woman dressed in a fluffy neck-to-toe bird costume.Palmeiro went 0-for-4 with a walk, extinguishing his club-record 24-game hitting streak on the same night the Brewers extended their losing streak to 12 games.

When Jamie Moyer got pounded for four runs in the second inning last night it didn't leave the Orioles with a very pretty picture.But the outlook improved almost immediately when Tim Hulett hit his first home run of the year, a three-run shot, in the bottom half of the inning. Eventually the Orioles engaged in a seventh-inning walkathon that produced four runs and led to a 13-8 win over the struggling Milwaukee Brewers.It was Hulett who triggered the Orioles' 15-hit attack, but he had a large supporting cast.

The cash-strapped, overmatched Montreal Expos had vacated Camden Yards, a most accommodating guest that will be missed. In their place last night were the New York Mets, with their assortment of big-ticket items and playoff aspirations.Hardly a fair trade. And just what the Orioles didn't need as they attempted to hoist themselves from the bottom of the AL East standings.Putting their five-game winning streak and renewed hopes on the line, the Orioles became tangled in another troublesome first inning by starter Juan Guzman and never got loose.

It was fun while it lasted. The Orioles enjoyed a two-week roll that carried them back into the conversation in the American League East, but the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox have reminded them in no uncertain terms where the real power resides in the division.Right-hander David Cone dominated the Orioles lineup for eight innings and first baseman Tino Martinez drove in three runs as the Yankees scored a 7-4 victory yesterday and moved to the threshold of a devastating three-game sweep at Camden Yards.

Though he never saw him play, he idolizes Roberto Clemente as a "role model for everybody in Puerto Rico."He can see his biggest critic in the mirror because "I get mad. I expect a lot of myself and when I don't come through, I need to say something loud, get it out."That's Luis Matos, the talented center fielder of the Frederick Keys who led the Orioles organization with 43 stolen bases last year and is making steady progress toward Baltimore.Only 20, the native of Bayamon, Puerto Rico, still has a lot to learn, according to Frederick manager Andy Etchebarren, but his talent is evident.

TORONTO -- In a clubhouse silent except for whispered theories and explanations, Orioles manager Ray Miller is now forced to admit the obvious. One loss by his pitching-thin team now bleeds into another, forcing uncomfortable matchups while wasting a dangerous offense.Evidence lay all about last night's 7-6 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays before 25,281 at SkyDome. Twelve hits and three leads were not enough to reverse a slide hastened by a queasy starting rotation and a bullpen with more experience than talent.

Ricky Bones -- #25 -- PAge: 29. Height: 6-0. Weight: 202.Bats: Right. Throws: Right.Contract status: Signed through 1999.Role: Right-handed long relief and spot starter.Career year: 1994 with Milwaukee, 10-9, 3.43 ERA, four complete games, one shutout.What's up in '99: He can do so much, which is his appeal. For now, Bones will be used in long and middle relief. But he also can be a spot starter. He's an innings eater in the bullpen, which this club lacked for much of last season.By the numbers: Made 32 relief appearances for Royals last season.
