The Baltimore Orioles continue to stock up on pitching for the hard spring ahead. The club signed former Minnesota Twins right-hander Roy Smith to a minor-league contract yesterday and invited him to spring training as a non-roster player.Smith, 29, was 5-10 with a 4.81 ERA for the Twins last year and won his only decision against the Orioles. He has a 4-0 lifetime record against Baltimore, but has a 21-27 lifetime record against the rest of the American League. His best major-league season was 1989, when he was 10-6 with a 3.92 ERA.Pitching was an off-season priority even before the Orioles included starter Pete Harnisch and reliever Curt Schilling in a trade to the Houston Astros for Glenn Davis.

ROCHESTER -- Roy Smith, who went 5-0 in his first minor league season a dozen years ago, is a pitcher waiting to return to the major leagues."I think I'm a big league pitcher. I think I've proven that," Smith said. "You don't walk around with a sign on your chest that says that, but it's true. I'd like to earn my way there."Smith, who has pitched with the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins, had an impressive spring training. In five games with the Rochester Red Wings this season, he's 2-2 with a 2.57 earned run average.

Plenty of wind and a healthy fleet of 14 all-female teams made this year's 11th annual Roy Smith Memorial Regatta, managed by Shearwater Sailing Club last weekend, a memorable and challenging event.With a nine-boat PHRF Spinnaker class and a five-boat J/30 class, this year was the first time a one-design class had been started in the event -- something that regatta organizers say they would like to see continue in the future.Straight bullets in both of Saturday's races and Sunday's series-ender gave Jacelyn Swenson and her crew on Valkyrie the win in the J/30 class indisputably.

Under normal circumstances, the last place that a pitcher on call up from the minors wants to be is on the mound when the parent club is on the skids.But that's exactly where Roy Smith, who gets the start tonight (7:35, HTS) against Cleveland's Charles Nagy (1-4, 3.92 earned run average) at Memorial Stadium, finds himself: getting a start for a team that has lost five in a row.The funny thing is that manager John Oates wants him right there, too."Roy's the kind of guy who wants to pitch in that kind of situation," said Oates.

SEATTLE -- With the 1991 season moving into the final two months, the Seattle Mariners have a threefold project.They have to keep sight of the other chasers in the Western Division as they jockey for position behind the leading Minnesota Twins. They also have to convince themselves they can be a factor in the race despite the fact they are still looking for their first winning season.And, perhaps easiest of all, the Mariners have to stay focused for two more nights before starting a stretch of 20 straight games against division rivals.

Between them, they have more than 46 years of major-leagu service. After so many years it seems each day brings the Orioles' Dwight Evans, and the Royals' George Brett and Kirk Gibson the possibility of reaching a new milestone. Tonight (7:35, HTS), with the Orioles attempting to avert a series sweep, is no different.At 39 and in his 19th full major-league season, Evans is the elder statesman of the group. He is the active major-league leader in walks, needing only seven more to tie Reggie Jackson for 21st on the all-time list.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The rematch went to Jose Canseco, whose previous encounter with Baltimore Orioles stopper Gregg Olson came down to a curveball and a called third strike in the ninth inning of Saturday's no-hitter.This time, it was a fastball in the 11th, and Canseco got even. His two-run single brought the Oakland Athletics from behind to score a 3-2 victory before 31,425 at the Oakland Coliseum.This time, Olson missed with a couple of two-strike curveballs and backed himself into a fastball with a wild pitch that moved the tying and winning runs into scoring position.

Part of the education of a big-league manager is learning when to say when. At the moment John Oates is getting a crash course from the Orioles' starting pitchers.Handling a pitching staff sometimes requires sacrificing somebody's earned run average to preserve a few arms. Unfortunately for Oates and the Orioles the practice has become almost standard procedure.Working with a bullpen that has pitched more innings (220) than any other in the American League, Oates is finding out there is no effective relief for consistently ineffective starters.
