Right-hander Mike Mussina was surprisingly cheerful after the Orioles' offense deserted him again yesterday. He pitched well enough to win -- didn't give up an earned run, in fact -- and chose to hang his hat on that rather than hang his head over another dismal day in a disappointing season.It wasn't selfishness. It was resignation. The Orioles waited around 10 innings for something bad to happen and it finally did. Pinch hitter Gary Gaetti homered off reliever Jesse Orosco to carry the Kansas City Royals to a 3-2 victory before 46,394 at Camden Yards.

Asked to name the active major-league pitcher he admires most, young Orioles veteran right-hander Mike Mussina didn't hesitate."Roger Clemens," Mussina answered. "Obviously, you have to respect what he's accomplished and how he's gone about it. He's greatly respected and he's earned it. He has worked as hard at it as any pitcher I'm aware of."When Mussina and Clemens faced each other for the first and only time, last September at Fenway Park, neither pitcher was having a typical year.Clemens struggled through an 11-14 season and Mussina (14-6 in 1993)

Sunday starter Mussina glad for 4 AAA monthsCHICAGO -- Rookie right-hander Mike Mussina is expected to join the Baltimore Orioles today at Comiskey Park, where he will make his first major-league start Sunday. But if his arrival seemed long in coming, he didn't let on."Any time is a good time to come up," Mussina said. "I had no planned time or set goal when I wanted to get here.
