The summer seemed so iconic. Huge men hit balls to places kids had heard about only in tall tales spun by Grandpa. Every day it seemed, Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa did something those kids would be able to tell their own grandchildren about. And it was all wrapped in that blessed nugget of Nike attitude: "Chicks dig the long ball." Barry Bonds only upped the ante three years later, in 2001, when he hit 73 homers and began mounting the first serious challenge to Hank Aaron's 755. The popularity of the game seemed indistinguishable from the popularity of the home run. But four years later, memories of those heady days are shrouded in ambivalence.

Sidney Ponson finished the sixth inning with a pumped fist last night and then wiped his bloody right hand on his white uniform pants. The first complete game by an Orioles pitcher this season had just passed its tensest moment, and Ponson seemed to sense it. Soon, the Orioles would have a 12-4 victory over the Anaheim Angels before 20,100 at Camden Yards. For Ponson, it was but another reminder that this is a different season from any he has experienced in Baltimore. He's pitching better, the little bumps in the road haven't been as extreme, and the offense is rewarding him in the win column.

In the case of the Orioles, statistics deceive.Orioles general manager Roland Hemond has been working the phones in quest of pitching help and manager Johnny Oates takes comfort in his set batting order, strong from top to bottom.Anyone who knows enough about baseball to distinguish a double play from a stage play could tell you the Orioles' offense is better than their pitching.Yet, a look at where the Orioles stood among American League teams in the two most relevant statistics in baseball, runs and runs allowed, reveals that 11 games into the season, the contrary was the case.

The Orioles' hopes of going undefeated this year were dashed when they lost for the first time this spring.Up: Jesus Tavarez. Continues to make a solid early impression on the coaching staff.

The Orioles reached the season's quarter pole Thursday night with the image of their most heads-up player forgetting the outs count during a critical eighth-inning rally, their most feared hitter carrying one double and their most durable pitcher with one victory. Manager Ray Miller promised that if B. J. Surhoff played another 20 years he would never run into a double play on a foul pop. It will likely be another 20 years before this franchise musters a more bizarre opening act.Given a 14-26 start that matched the third-worst in franchise history, Miller and his underachieving team can only hope the schedule's first seven weeks are a mirage instead of a mirror for the rest of the year.

CHICAGO -- We know that April showers bring the promise of future flowers, but there's no axiom to tell us what future harvest will be reaped from some of the bizarre statistics throughout baseball in the first month of the season. Are they aberrations or indicators, trends or flukes? It can be stated with some certainty that Jermaine Dye and Jose Cruz Jr. won't finish the season first and second in the American League in home runs, that Mike Bordick won't lead the AL in runs batted in, and that Mike Morgan won't have more saves than John Wetteland.

The struggling Milwaukee Brewers are tied for 10th in the American League in home runs this year, but they are one size-4 swing away from setting the major-league record for grand slams in a season. How do you explain that?Not very easily, except that this is the year of the Big Slam. There have been 115 bases-loaded home runs -- already 13 more than any other season -- even though this season started three weeks late and still has three more weeks to go.The Brewers, who are as far removed as the club could get from the days when Harvey's Wallbangers brought a pennant to Milwaukee in 1982, have hit 10 grand slams this year, equaling the record shared by the 1938 Detroit Tigers and 1987 New York Yankees.

The planets seemed to be perfectly aligned for an Orioles victory last night. Ace Mike Mussina was on the mound, facing a guy with a 5.56 ERA. Boston Red Sox offensive cornerstone Nomar Garciaparra was in the training room, nursing a strained thigh.What the Orioles had not bargained for was the strong performance of Red Sox right-hander Mark Portugal, who pitched just long enough and just well enough to earn a 2-1 decision in the deciding game of an important three-game series at Camden Yards.

Baltimore looked to be an unlikely stop on the road to recovery, but the struggling Chicago White Sox perked up considerably during the three-game series that ended yesterday afternoon at Oriole Park.They pounded former teammate Doug Drabek on Wednesday night and trashed Mike Mussina on the way to a lopsided 8-2 victory that dealt the division-leading Orioles their first series loss of the young season."It was very important for this club to come in and compete against a veteran ballclub and an outstanding pitcher," said White Sox manager Jerry Manuel.
