CLEVELAND - Sammy Ellis might be the perfect pitching coach for the Orioles. His hair turned white long before he got here. A season that began with 40 percent of the Orioles' projected starting rotation absent and their closer on the disabled list has never taken shape. The Orioles have the worst ERA in baseball in a season in which pitching has been virtually nonexistent. The Orioles are assured their worst team ERA in franchise history, entering the weekend at 5.58, more than a half run above the 5.01 of 1987.

Brewers: Ben McDonald, who has lost five straight decisions to the Blue Jays, last beat Toronto on Aug. 12, 1992 at SkyDome.Indians: The game was delayed for 14 minutes before the start of the fourth when a computer erroneously turned off the lights illuminating the field.Rangers: Warren Newson was the designated hitter because Mickey Tettleton was nursing a pulled hamstring. . . . This is the Rangers' first scheduled two-day homestand since April 1984.Red Sox: Boston sent pitching coach Al Nipper to the minors and demoted first-year bullpen coach Dave Carlucci to bullpen catcher.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Sammy Ellis won't plead guilty to having a superstition; just don't ask him to walk under the stepladder that is the Orioles' pitching staff. Yet at the same time, the Orioles pitching coach will admit it beats being under the gun as a semblance of normalcy has returned to a staff that ranked last in the American League with a 6.06 ERA as recently as May 18 and a bullpen still best-known for its 13 blown saves in 19 opportunities. Monday's 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays marked the first time in recent memory that manager Mike Hargrove could work his bullpen with confidence.

Former Orioles pitching coach Mike Flanagan spoke with Mike Mussina on the team charter Wednesday night back to Baltimore. Trying to put the memory of a three-game sweep in Toronto behind them, they also looked ahead to Mussina's next outing, and sought ways to avoid prolonging the worst start of his career. Flanagan, currently an analyst on Home Team Sports, said Mussina has been "jumpy" with his fastball. He's overthrowing it, a problem that also surfaced during spring training, and he's paying a stiff price.

Welcome, No. 7.That's what we'll call Sammy Ellis -- No. 7. There's no sense getting too intimate with the Orioles' seventh pitching coach in as many seasons, including Mike Flanagan twice. Before you can ask, "Where have you gone, George Bamberger?" Ellis could be gone.The Orioles aren't quite as unstable with pitching coaches as the numbers indicate -- Flanagan (No. 2 and No. 5) has been a consistent presence since 1995, and Ray Miller (No. 4) was with the club three seasons, including two as manager (No. 4 under owner Peter Angelos, for those scoring at home)

On a frosty night when there was no such thing as a routine pop fly, the elements appeared to conspire against the Orioles.There was Randy Milligan's fourth-inning cannon shot to centerfield, an almost certain home run until it hit head winds of 20 mph and dropped softly into Chicago outfielder Lance Johnson's mitt.An inning later, there was Scott Fletcher's twisting drive to right-center, a ball that hung in the air a long time before falling safely between Orioles outfielders Mike Devereaux and Dwight Evans for a two-run double.
