FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Mike Mussina knew it wouldn't last forever, but the perfectionist in him could not let go of his 18-inning Grapefruit League scoreless streak without a moment of self-rebuke.Minnesota Twins third baseman Luis Quinones brought the streak to an end with a fifth-inning home run in the Orioles' 6-5 exhibition loss yesterday at the Lee County Sports Complex. It was a wind-blown home run at that, but Mussina wasn't letting himself off that easily."It's not the runs that bother me," he said.

The Orioles' sweep by the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field last weekend raised all kinds of red flags. But four days back home against the Tampa Bay Rays allowed the Orioles to get back to one of the things that has carried them to the top of the American League East -- a lights-out bullpen. Relief pitchers Brad Brach , Andrew Miller, and Zach Britton combined for three scoreless innings in Thursday's 5-4 win at Camden Yards, and the bullpen completed a four-game series against the Rays without allowing an earned run in 14 1/3 innings.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- It's an indication of how things have been going for the Orioles that one scoreless inning was the big news yesterday.Scoreless innings have been tough to come by this spring, especially for relief pitchers. The fact that Lee Smith, penciled in as this season's closer, was able to get three outs without allowing a run was the goods-news part.The bad-news side of the story is that the Orioles wasted their best-pitched game of the spring, losing a 2-1, 10-inning decision to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

NEW YORK  - One of the first things Orioles manager Buck Showalter said to reporters during his pregame news conference Sunday afternoon was about right-hander Dylan Bundy 's outing for short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Saturday. "Bundy was good last night, huh?" Showalter said. Indeed he was. Bundy, 21, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out nine in five scoreless innings against Brooklyn. Recovering from elbow ligament surgery last June, he has now allowed one run while walking one and striking out 15 batters in 10 innings in his first two rehab starts for the IronBirds.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Right-hander Rick Sutcliffe wasn't particularly impressed with himself, but his comeback remains on schedule.Sutcliffe pitched three scoreless innings in last night's exhibition game against the Texas Rangers. It wasn't a perfect outing, but it was an improvement over his Orioles spring debut Monday."I felt like I threw a little bit better," said Sutcliffe, who gave up three hits and a pair of walks. "Everything's fine -- three innings with no runs. I could have gone more, of course, but that's the program."

It certainly was not the spot Sam Perlozzo wanted for Kurt Birkins, but with all his other options in the bullpen exhausted, the Orioles manager had no choice. So, in a scoreless game in the 12th inning, Perlozzo summoned Birkins, who had not pitched in a game since extended spring training on March 30. The Orioles lefthander was one out from getting out of the inning unscathed before surrendering a grand slam to the Detroit Tigers' Craig Monroe. Monroe ripped a 1-1 pitch that sailed through the cold air and steady rain and disappeared over the center-field wall, helping the Tigers to a 4-1 victory over the Orioles before 13,288, the second smallest crowd in Camden Yards history.

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- If the Orioles are waiting for Fernando Valenzuela to expose himself as a myth, they may need a lot of patience.What started out as a spring training curiosity has suddenly developed into a subject of intrigue. Can Valenzuela, after an absence of nearly two years, make a successful return to the big leagues?There still isn't anybody willing to make that prediction, but even those who scoffed at that notion when Valenzuela reported to camp are beginning to have second thoughts.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- In their prime, Fernando Valenzuela and Bert Blyleven were considered franchise pitchers. One was C dazzling, left-handed trickster, the other an overpowering right-hander with a wicked curveball.Both took another step on the comeback trail yesterday, but only one went forward.Valenzuela, a former Los Angeles Dodger trying to return with a team about as far removed from his original as possible, pitched three more scoreless innings for the Orioles. Blyleven, whose career has made a circuit through both leagues, is trying to make it back where he started, with the Minnesota Twins.

The first game after a big trade always seems to get magnified into something more important than it really is - as if one game can dictate the course a team travels from that point forward. So two days after trading Jeff Conine back to the Florida Marlins, the Orioles weren't looking at last night's scoreless marathon against the Oakland Athletics as a harbinger for another long September. They couldn't. To do so would be pure torture. The Orioles will score runs again. They just haven't for the past 29 innings, and they didn't again last night, as the Athletics pulled out a 2-0, 12-inning victory before 19,517 at Camden Yards.

Dylan Bundy was the first Saturday night to say he still has work to do before he legitimately can be considered an option for the Orioles' major league club. Making his second rehabilitation start for short-season Single-A Aberdeen, the club's top prospect, working his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery a year ago, was dominant Saturday during a 3-1 loss in 11 innings. He threw five scoreless innings and allowed just two hits against Brooklyn, recording nine strikeouts, including five of the first six batters he faced.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Just three batters into his outing against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday afternoon, Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman was already on the brink of disaster. From his first pitches of the day, Gausman knew the strike zone was getting pinched. And a leadoff walk quickly turned into a bases-loaded jam following a looping single and fielding error by two-time American League Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy. Facing the possibility of an early exit, Gausman went on to show the Orioles another example of his continuing evolution into a dependable major league starting pitcher.

Winning a series against the division rival Boston Red Sox, especially at home and when the defending World Series champions are struggling, has to be considered somewhat significant for the Orioles -- even in June. What adds to the accomplishment, though, is how these searching-for-an-identity Orioles did it: With excellent starting pitching. It's nutty, but true. In the Orioles' 6-0 victory Wednesday night, Wei-Yin Chen became the third consecutive Orioles starter to go at least six innings and allow one run or fewer.

Miguel Gonzalez threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings for Double-A Bowie against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Wednesday night in an injury rehabilitation start as the right-hander recovers from a strained right oblique. Gonzalez, who is eligible to return to the Orioles from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, allowed four hits and struck out five batters on 70 pitches (45 strikes). He was pulled after striking out the leadoff batter in the fifth inning. A wild pitch and a walk helped the Fisher Cats load the bases with two outs in the second, but Gonzalez induced a groundout to escape the inning unscathed.

The Orioles needed a deep outing from right-hander Bud Norris on Monday night against the Boston Red Sox after the club's bullpen accounted for 6 2/3 innings the previous day. Norris gave the Orioles just that, recording his best start since joining the club last July, tossing eight scoreless innings and holding Boston to just three hits as the Orioles handed the Red Sox their sixth loss in the last seven games with a 4-0 shutout win in front of...

Orioles manager Buck Showalter's decision to pitch right-hander Miguel Gonzalez in today's series finale against Tampa Bay appears to have paid off. Gonzalez held the Rays scoreless for five innings this afternoon, yielding just three hits while recording six strikeouts and walking three batters. After the scoreless outing today, Gonzalez has allowed three earned runs over 11 innings in his past two starts. Gonzalez was scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rays, but after it was rained out, Showalter pushed Gonzalez to today.

COLLEGE PARK - It was a test Maryland had not cared to take: Could the Terps advance in the NCAA tournament against physically intimidating Texas on a night when star forward Alyssa Thomas - playing the final home game of her career - could not muster a field goal in the first half?  But there the fourth-seeded Terps were, tied at halftime with the fifth-seeded Longhorns with Thomas having missed all five of her field-goal attempts and both of her foul shots. Aided by her "supporting cast," the Terps hung in until Thomas found her game in the second half - she finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds  -- and Maryland earned a rugged, 69-64 victory.
