If anybody expected the Orioles to mail in their makeup game Thursday afternoon, right fielder Nick Markakis made it fairly clear how much they want to have an impact on the outcome of the American League East race. Markakis leveled New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli in the seventh inning in an attempt to dislodge the ball and score the potential tying run. Cervelli held on to the ball, but he was holding on to the ground for a couple of minutes after the collision.

CHICAGO -- Frank Robinson trotted out a "new look" lineup in last night's 5-1 victory over the White Sox, starting all five of the lefthanded hitters he had available.Glenn Davis was missing for the second straight night, but he managed to hit his fourth home run in his last eight games as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning.In addition to regular designated hitter Sam Horn (who struck out all three times he batted), outfielders Brady Anderson and Joe Orsulak, catcher Ernie Whitt and second baseman Juan Bell swung from the left side against knuckleballer Charlie Hough (0-1)

Nobody in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse wanted to touch the dreaded "P" word last night.As in, "Do you think the team is pressing now?""I'm not going to say anything about moods, attitude, or anything like that," said second baseman Jody Reed. "That's a piece of dynamite. Things are getting taken out of context."The Red Sox are fast becoming a powder keg entry in the American League East pennant race. With last night's 8-4 loss to the Orioles at Memorial Stadium, they relinquished their grip on first place, a grip they had held for 50 days.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- It was only the first game -- heck, it was only the first exhibition game -- and I made myself promise not to get carried away under any circumstances. And then Sam Horn hits the mother of all home runs in the very first inning, and I can't help myself.If this team doesn't win the div. . . .OK, I'll stop before I say something stupid.But, as Vin Scully would be the first to point out, it was a glorious day for baseball. The sun was shining, it was 82 degrees, Ben McDonald was on the mound, and the Orioles were on their way to an 8-0 slam-dancing of the White Sox. And you're supposed to stay calm?

They won on a wild pitch.They won on a wild pitch and on a couple of bloop singles and on some audacious base running and on what seemed like a dozen brilliant Johnny Oates maneuvers in a row.They won a game they couldn't win against the defending world champions, and what can you say?You can't say anything.You're dumbstruck.You're awestruck.Can I set it up for you? The Orioles are losing 4-1 in the ninth and Rick Aguilera, only one of the best relievers in the game, is on the mound, and the Orioles look like, well, they had to figure this would be just one of those nights.

* The Atlanta Braves just enjoyed their first winning month since August 1987, but not 1 player still on the team could remember those halcyon days. The stretch of 22 straight losing months is the fifth longest in major-league history.* The Tigers' Frank Tanana pitched a shutout in the inaugura game at the new Comiskey Park in April. But in his 7 starts since then, he has pitched 33 1/3 innings, given up 11 HRs and run up a 6.75 ERA.* Red Sox starters had the best combined ERA in the AL las year, but they have fallen on some hard times.

NEW YORK -- His introduction to the big leagues hasn't been quite the way Tommy Shields dreamed it would be, but it has postponed his retirement."I had pretty much decided if I didn't come up this year, I was going to retire," Shields said. That decision had been reached despite the urging of several people, including Jerry Narron, manager of the Rochester Red Wings, the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate, that he give himself at least another year."Jerry and a few other Triple-A managers told me to hang in there," Shields said.

Wings left-hander Moyer finds comfort zoneROCHESTER, N.Y. -- If Jamie Moyer gets any more comfortable on the mound, he'll be lounging in a La-Z-Boy and delivering the pitches by remote control.The Rochester Red Wings left-hander has won his first two starts and has a 1.42 ERA. Moyer, 30, never known as a strikeout pitcher, has struck out 11 in 12 2/3 innings.He has pitched four of his 10 professional seasons in the majors. The Opening Day starter on a veteran pitching staff didn't let his few weeks in big-league camp distract him from his real purpose this season.

Free-agent right-hander Bob Milacki has agreed to terms on a minor-league contract with the Oakland Athletics and has been invited to spring training to compete for a place in their starting rotation.Milacki accepted a one-year deal worth $350,000 plus incentives to join the A's, who recently signed former Oriole Storm Davis to a two-year deal and also have added former Orioles 18-game winner Jeff Ballard to their Triple-A roster.That leaves only three free agents from the 1992 Orioles roster unsigned, including Bill Ripken, who is believed to be close to signing with an American League West team.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- If Kevin Brown had stayed in the bullpen two more minutes, it might have been different.If Kevin Reimer's fly ball in the eighth inning had spun about five fewer revolutions, it might have been different.And if Rick Sutcliffe hadn't had four quick runs to work with, it might have been different.But so far this has been a different kind of year for the Orioles, and the ifs all seem to be coming up in their favor -- and last night was just the most recent example.Brown gave up four runs after throwing only seven pitches; Reimer missed a game-tying home run by no more than the width of the leftfield foul pole; Sutcliffe hung around until the eighth inning to get the win when Gregg Olson escaped with his seventh save.

When the Orioles season opened, a lot of people thought manager John Oates was whistling Dixie when he said he didn't have to worry about any department as long as he had the kind of pitching the club showed this spring.Two weeks into the American League season, it looks as if Oates might be right. This club, 6-5 and three games behind first-place Toronto in the AL East after three straight wins over Detroit, may have the pitching to carry it.The O's are getting one impressive performance after another -- from Rick Sutcliffe, then from Mike Mussina, yesterday eight strong innings from Bob Milacki in the 3-2 win over the Tigers here.

When Bobby Bonilla signed a five-year contract worth $29.5 million in late November, it set a salary standard for top-name free agents. It also guaranteed that this would be another record year for salary arbitration.Baseball executives winced when they heard the value of the package, but not just because the price of free agency had gone up again. The effect on the free-agent market was predictable -- and free-agent signings are, after all, voluntary. The major aftershock will be felt in arbitration, where a number of front-line players will be able to use the contracts signed by Bonilla and Danny Tartabull to help justify their own salary demands.
