They have grown accustomed to this type of outing from one of their young starters every five days. For nearly 3 1/2 months, the Orioles sent Daniel Cabrera to the mound and watched him mix periods of dominance with frustrating wildness, until their patience finally ran out. The Orioles demoted Cabrera to Triple-A Ottawa last week, and summoned rookie Adam Loewen to take his spot. Last night, Loewen did his best Cabrera impression, allowing one hit in five innings but walking six. However, by the end of a near three-hour game played in stifling heat, Loewen's wildness was merely a subplot.

ATLANTA -- Before his three-day homecoming is over, Orioles pitching coach Leo Mazzone said that he planned on instructing his pitchers to take a look at the left-field facade at Turner Field. On a ledge under the out-of-town scoreboard are 16 pennants recognizing the Atlanta Braves' division titles, including one colored in red and blue for the 1995 World Series championship team. For all but two of those years, Mazzone led one of the game's greatest pitching dynasties, which abided by a philosophy that the 57-year-old pitching guru insists is quite simple.

CHICAGO -- A four-game series that started with so much hope and optimism ended last night with the Orioles leaving town as a beaten team. Over the past three days following Erik Bedard's two-hit gem on Monday, the Orioles were overwhelmed by the Chicago White Sox in every way. The gap between the two clubs, reflected in the standings alone, was clear again last night, when the White Sox made a three-run deficit disappear in no time at all. Designated hitter...

ANAHEIM, Calif. - With his team about to play Game 7 of the World Series, San Francisco Giants manager Dusty Baker faced another heavy dose of questions about his uncertain future last night and gave one of his most telling answers. Baker's contract is about to expire, and Giants owner Peter Magowan has put off addressing the situation until after the season. Magowan said he hopes to have the matter resolved within a week to 10 days. "It might even take longer than that," Magowan said last night.

WASHINGTON - So what could the Washington Nationals do for an encore? One game after their giddy home-opening win, the first-place Nationals got another top-notch pitching performance and continued heroics from third baseman Vinny Castilla last night en route to a 9-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Castilla followed his three-hit, four-RBI performance in Thursday night's opener with three more hits and four more RBIs, including his third home run. And John Patterson followed Livan Hernandez's strong pitching start Thursday night with a beauty of his own. Patterson, nearly relegated to the bullpen as the season began, surrendered no runs and four hits in seven innings and didn't allow a runner to reach third base.

Giants That was then: The Fabulous Dusty Baker Boys led the West at the All-Star break before succumbing to injuries and Arizona's desert storm. This is now: The Giants have traded in barren, cold 3Com Park for Pacific Bell Park, a 40,800-seat paradise in one of the warmest, sunniest parts of San Francisco. Season-ticket sales are up 24,000 from last year with attendance guaranteed to top 3 million. Upside: Barry Bonds' career-best ratio of a homer every 10.4 at-bats could get even better with Pac Bell's 307-foot right-field corner, the majors' closest.
