VERO BEACH, Fla. -- The Orioles' bullpen turned in another clunker yesterday in a 9-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, with Ricky Bottalico and Jim Brower the primary culprits. Brower couldn't hold a 3-0 lead after replacing starter Eric DuBose. He allowed a run in the third inning on three straight two-out singles, and an RBI grounder by Bill Mueller and bases-empty homer by Sandy Alomar Jr. tied the game in the fourth. Twins vs. Orioles Fort Lauderdale, Fla., today, 1:05 p.m.

As Sandy Alomar circled the bases after his home run Sunday, it appeared as if he were soaring. And as he thrust both arms up during his home run trot, it was almost on cue that the 43,863 fans at Jacobs Field did the same -- a spontaneous moment of joy that Alomar yesterday was almost apologetic about."

It took more than 18 months, but Mike Hargrove finally got the four victories he needed to reach the 1,000-win milestone in his managerial career. When the Orioles fired him at the end of the 2003 season, Hargrove was stuck on win No. 996. His fourth as the manager of the Seattle Mariners came Wednesday, a 2-1 win over the Royals. He joked afterward that if all of his wins had been as close as that one, "I'd be dead." Hargrove began his managerial career in 1991 with Cleveland and won 721 games with the Indians before being dismissed in 1999.

Each year the baseball All-Star starters chosen by the fans generate controversy because of the mix between performance (Cal Ripken) and popularity (Darryl Strawberry). Aside from Strawberry, who has only 183 at-bats due to injuries, Mark McGwire (.201 average) and Sandy Alomar (.205) also made the starting lineups.Because of such questionable picks, we'd like to know if you think the process for choosing the starters should be re-examined.1) Should the fans pick the starters?2) Should the players, managers and coaches pick the starters?

More than a game, more than a loss, the Orioles experienced the most hurtful moment of an already trying season during the sixth inning of last night's 5-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians.It was then that a line drive off the bat of catcher Sandy Alomar caught Mussina just above his right eye, knocking him to the ground and opening a gash that bled profusely onto the infield grass. What appeared grisly, however, was less than critical.The Orioles' ace suffered a laceration over his right eye, a broken nose and significant swelling.

Jesse Orosco walked up to Armando Benitez in the Orioles' clubhouse last night, placed an arm around his shoulder and whispered to him. Tony Tarasco, whose locker has been next to Benitez's all season, did the same.Eric Davis embraced him. So did bullpen coach Elrod Hendricks and scout Curt Motton. Each gesture, coming one at a time, brought a small smile from the reliever. There were no tears, but who could have blamed him if they had flowed?Fate took hold of Benitez once more and spun him on his heels.
