SEATTLE -- Scott Erickson got his usual complement of ground balls yesterday, some sneaking into vacant areas, most settling into the waiting gloves of his infielders. And it was all the Orioles needed to take firm control of the Division Series.Erickson surrendered two runs in the first, then held down the Seattle Mariners with force until an Orioles comeback that materialized midway through the game. He squeezed in five shutout innings between two trouble points, turned the game over to the bullpen and was rewarded with a 9-3 victory that gave his club a 2-0 lead heading to Camden Yards.

ATLANTA BRAVESWhere they're coming from: They didn't dominate the NL last year, as everyone had presumed they would, and were in second place with a 68-46 record when the strike began.Where they're going: When Expos GM Kevin Malone traded CF Marquis Grissom to the Braves, he said he was basically dealing Atlanta a championship. He may be right.Key newcomers: Grissom (.288, 36 steals), 3B Chipper Jones (out last season with torn knee ligament).What must go right: The Braves do need to identify a closer once and for all, and they think they have one in young, hard-throwing Brad Clontz, who could save a ton of games behind starters Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, et al. The Braves must get offense from right-handed hitters Grissom, Jones and Blauser, because the lineup is overweighted with left-handed sluggers.
