Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez suffered his worst - and shortest - start of the season on Wednesday night against the Astros. Gonzalez lasted just 3 2/3 innings, allowing a season-high nine runs on nine hits, forced from the game after allowing five unearned runs in the fourth inning. The Astros plated all five of their fourth-inning runs - including Jason Castro's first career grand slam - after a two-out error by shortstop J.J. Hardy. After recording eight straight quality starts, Gonzalez has been roughed up for 15 runs over his past two starts over 8 1/3 innings.

DETROIT - Since the moment right-hander Bud Norris joined the Orioles in a trade last July, he has talked about pitching in the playoffs. The chatty 29-year-old finally received the chance Sunday on a blistery afternoon at Comerica Park against the celebrated Detroit Tigers offense. He seized it, throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory, catapulting the Orioles into a second postseason round - the first time they've reached the American League Championship Series since 1997.

New York -- Several gritty comebacks and one of the American League's highest-scoring offenses have hidden a truth so far about the Orioles. Through 19 games, the starting rotation, expected to be the team's anchor, hasn't been very good. Right-hander Daniel Cabrera delivered the latest disappointing outing on a cold and wet afternoon yesterday at Yankee Stadium, again struggling with his command in a 6-1 loss to the New York Yankees. More inside O's, Mora closer to contract extension.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.

BOWIE -- Orioles right-hander Sidney Ponson pronounced himself fit and ready last night after pitching four scoreless innings for the Bowie Baysox in a Double-A Eastern League game against the Akron Aeros at Prince George's Stadium. "I felt pretty good," said Ponson, who has been on the major-league disabled list since April 17 with elbow tendinitis. "They sent me down here to face some hitters, and hopefully my next start will be for the Orioles." Ponson allowed three hits, all singles, in the Baysox's 5-3 win over the Aeros before a crowd of 8,979 spectators.

The Orioles had sought a high-profile free agent to bolster their pitching staff, only to be left holding the rosin bag. With spring training less than three weeks away, they were prepared instead to lower their sights and sift through the farm system. In the end, they found comfortable footing on middle ground, signing veteran right-hander Pat Rapp to an incentive-laden one-year, $750,000 deal yesterday and plugging the final hole in their rotation. The club also has a $2.3 million option for 2001.

On Friday morning, Orioles manager Buck Showalter wouldn't officially announce his starting pitcher for Game 3 of the American League Division Series, but right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is expected to start that game. Both Gonzalez and right-hander Bud Norris will continue to be available out of the bullpen in Game 2 on Friday afternoon -- as they were in Game 1 -- but Showalter said he would only use Gonzalez in an emergency. “[Gonzalez] is down in the pecking order of options out of the 'pen as opposed to Bud,” Showalter said.

Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez said he was somewhat surprised that he was added to the Orioles' American League Division Series roster, but he thought he might have a chance after the way he had pitched down the stretch. “I was wondering,” said Jimenez, who was 6-9 with a 4.81 ERA in 25 games this year but 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA in three September appearances. “I realize that the other guys have been doing their job, so I know it was a tough call. But I was really happy to have the opportunity to be on the roster, and I'm looking forward to doing my job.” When deciding on his 25-man ALDS roster, manager Buck Showalter said he considered several factors, including the Detroit Tigers' right-handed heavy lineup, versatility and recent performance.

Chris Tillman shies away from talking about his accomplishments this season because he doesn't want to give the inclination that he's satisfied with the steps he has taken. He had a remarkable second half, continued his emergence as a leader in the Orioles starting rotation and continued to gain the confidence of manager Buck Showalter. Tillman admits he's much more comfortable on the mound than he is talking about himself. And he knows success is fleeting over a long baseball season.

Considering how well his starting rotation mates had been pitching going into the postseason, Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman expected to be sent to the bullpen for the American League Division Series. He received word before the Orioles' ALDS workout at Camden Yards on Wednesday that he would indeed work in relief. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said he would use four starters in the best-of-five series. “I'm excited about it and I kind of knew this was coming,” said Gausman, who was 7-7 with a 3.57 ERA in 20 starts with the Orioles, “so I kind have been trying get into the routine like I had last year coming out of the 'pen.

TORONTO - Even though Ubaldo Jimenez 's first season in an Orioles uniform has been a rough one, the right-hander believes he has made strides in his last few outings. Jimenez said a slight tweak in his delivery has made his unconventional mechanics a little smoother. Instead of moving his hands completely over and behind his head while in the windup, he's raising them just in front of his head, which he said allows him to drive to the plate better and see his target more clearly.

TORONTO - Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is slated to start the Orioles' regular-season finale against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter plans to give his relievers some work on Saturday and Sunday, with a three-day layoff looming before the playoffs start, so it's unclear how deep Gonzalez will go. “Obviously, Toronto will have something to say about that, but it won't be a normal outing,” Showalter said....

CALIFORNIA ANGELSSpring priorities: The Angels need to reconstruct their starting rotation in the wake of the trade that sent left-hander Jim Abbott to the New York Yankees. . . . Promising Damion Easley was expected to switch from third base to second this spring, but he's back at third now that Kelly Gruber is out of the picture after shoulder surgery. That, incidentally, is a big break for former Oriole Rene Gonzales, who should get more playing time with Gruber out.New faces: Pitcher Russ Springer, first baseman J. T. Snow and reliever Jerry Nielsen (acquired from Yankees in Abbott deal)
