Cincinnati Reds pitcher Norm Charlton says he intentionally threw at Los Angeles Dodgers batter Mike Scioscia in Monday night's game because he believes Scioscia was stealing the Reds' pitching signals.RTC Charlton said that when he hit Scioscia in the hand with a pitch in the sixth inning, it was no accident, the Cincinnati Post reported yesterday. Charlton accused Scioscia of stealing signs from second base and relaying them to teammates at the plate."I threw at him," Charlton said. "I hit him on the arm, but I didn't mean to hit him on the arm. He'll be lucky if I don't rip his head off the next time I'm pitching."

No question the fifth and sixth innings were a mess Monday night at Camden Yards due to a continual and heavy rain. And surely the Los Angeles Angels would have preferred if the game had been stopped after they scored a run in the top of the sixth. The Orioles scored twice in the bottom of the sixth as the field conditions worsened. Those two runs proved to be the difference in a 4-3 Orioles victory that included a two-hour and 14-minute rain delay. Here are post-game interviews with umpiring crew chief Joe West, Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Angels manager Mike Scioscia.

NEW YORK - His first chance to manage in the playoffs has brought all the second-guessers to Mike Scioscia's doorstep. Scioscia knew what was coming yesterday as he entered the interview room at Yankee Stadium before Game 2 of the American League Division Series. He reached into Anaheim's bullpen three times the previous night, but never touched closer Troy Percival. Left-hander Scott Schoeneweis gave up the tying single to Jason Giambi in the eighth inning, Bernie Williams followed with a three-run homer off Brendan Donnelly, and New York celebrated an 8-5 victory.

ANAHEIM, Calif. --We're at Angel Stadium, and former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden is eating a hot dog - "relish only, please," and talking about the sport he loves the most. "Baseball," he says. "The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers could be playing for the championship, and I'd rather be here watching the Angels and Yankees." Then Wooden pulls out his wallet, removing a newspaper clipping he must treasure - carefully packaged along with a picture of his wife, Nellie, who was 15 at the time.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - During the four decades that they existed as the unattractive sibling in the Southern California baseball market, the Anaheim Angels worked hard to create their own identity and emerge from the successful shadow of the Los Angeles Dodgers. No one would come right out and admit it, but it was generally understood that the Angels suffered from something of an organizational inferiority complex. They rankled at the notion that only the rich team up the freeway really knew how to do things right and that the Dodgers' national reputation as a "first-class" franchise somehow relegated the Angels to perpetual second-class status.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Last year it was Curt Schilling vs. Roger Clemens. This year, Game 7 of the World Series will match Livan Hernandez against John Lackey. Who? After his team's thrilling 6-5 comeback victory in Game 6, Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced he would start Lackey in the clincher instead of Ramon Ortiz, who has tendinitis in his right wrist. Lackey, a rookie, started Game 4 for the Angels and will be pitching on three days' rest. "With Ramon's wrist, I think we can use him at some point, but I don't know about the length," Scioscia said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia plotted his strategy through Game 5 of the World Series as if he never had a doubt his team was coming back, blissfully unaware the San Francisco Giants were about to turn it into one of the biggest routs in series history. The Angels have starting pitching concerns, and they faced an early six-run deficit, but Scioscia had seen his team do too much hitting this postseason to alter his best-laid plans. Before long, those decisions didn't look so foolhardy.

SO MUCH FOR the myth of the mellow Frank Robinson. So much for the kinder, gentler Washington Nationals manager who used to have every kind of sharp edge as a player -- and a few in his early incarnations as a manager -- but was widely believed to have gotten in touch with his softer side. He even took up golf a couple of years ago. Now, just when we've all gotten comfortable with the Hall of Fame player who went from firebrand to father figure (and maybe even grandfather figure) during his three-decade managerial career, the old Frank has resurfaced and served notice that if there's any truth to the notion that nice guys finish last, he's not taking any chances.

WASHINGTON Nationals fans are understandably gleeful about the position of their team in the National League East standings, but there is trouble on the horizon. Bank on it. Manager Frank Robinson, who has done a wonderful job turning a terrible situation in Montreal into a terrific early pennant run in the nation's baseball-hungry capital, might have unwittingly opened the Pandora's box that will undo the Nats' exciting season. Maybe you missed it, if you don't stay up real late and have satellite television, but things got a little nasty the past few days in Anaheim, Calif.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - As Washington and the Los Angeles Angels finished their contentious series Wednesday night, Nationals right fielder Jose Guillen, the former Angel who was suspended for the final eight games of 2004 after an on-field tantrum and clubhouse argument with Mike Scioscia, had a few parting shots for his former manager. "I don't really care much for Mike Scioscia," Guillen said. "I don't have any respect for him anymore. He is like a piece of garbage." Guillen was booed before every at-bat in the series and had to be hauled into the dugout by three teammates during Tuesday night's altercation.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Angels celebrated their first world title well into Sunday night, enjoying the obligatory champagne shower more than most because they had waited so long and endured so much. Nobody wanted to go home, because nobody wanted to take the chance that the Angels would wake up and find out it was really Sunday morning again and they still had a Game 7 to play against the San Francisco Giants. "I do feel like I'm dreaming," said outfielder and elder statesman Tim Salmon.

Francisco Rodriguez became the first pitcher in Anaheim Angels history to win two postseason games after striking out four of the six batters he faced in Friday's 9-6 victory over the New York Yankees. Rodriguez, who began the season at the Double-A level, cruised through his two scoreless innings while the Angels rallied from a 6-1 deficit in Game 3 of the American League Division Series.
