To Bruce Kison, the importance of the moment was the event itself, not the shade of the sky. It lay in the stakes, not the stars. A reliever for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Kison appeared in Game 4 of the 1971 World Series against the Orioles, becoming part of a historical night at Three Rivers Stadium, but only because he was pitching at night. Kison had no idea of its magnitude. Nor did he care. "The big deal was the fact that we were playing in a World Series," said Kison, a Florida-based scout and former pitching coach with the Orioles.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 2 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: What have they said? A hero every night. Delmon Young played the role today. He's been marvelous off the bench and as a pinch hitter, and Young's postseason experience showed with a game-winning three-run double in the eighth. On to Detroit. Dan Connolly, reporter: Well, the Orioles felt like they had a seceret weapon in pinch-hitter Delmon Young.

SAN FRANCISCO - The October magic disappeared last night for San Francisco Giants pitcher Livan Hernandez. He had the same helpless look so many pitchers have had this month against the Anaheim Angels' relentless offense. It seemed nothing could save him. Not Barry Bonds. Not even Eric Gregg. The Angels were a red blur again running the bases. They scored four runs in back-to-back innings and withstood another mammoth home run by Bonds to claim a 10-4 victory in Game 3 of the World Series at Pacific Bell Park.

The Orioles will be mailing out invoices for postseason tickets to all season-ticket holders on Friday. The club is 5½ games out of the AL East lead and 3½ games behind the second AL wild-card spot entering Wednesday night's game against the Rays. But this it usually the time major league teams send out invoices for playoff tickets in order to provide enough lead time to process orders, said Greg Bader, the Orioles' vice president of communications and marketing. Season-ticket holders can guarantee seats for all 11 possible home playoff games (four World Series games, four league championship series games and either three division series games or one wild-card game and two division series games)

CHICAGO -- Gene Lamont would rather not risk Frank Thomas' health by playing him at first base, but the White Sox manager might not have a choice.Dan Pasqua is hitless in two games and has not played well defensively as a replacement for Thomas, who has been restricted to use as AL notebooka designated hitter. The White Sox's ineffective offense (they've left 23 runners on base) needs a boost.If Thomas can play first base in Game 3 tomorrow, either Bo Jackson or George Bell would go into the lineup as the DH. "I'll see how he [Thomas]

Five years after resuming the Saturday afternoon Game of the Week franchise, Fox may be poised to snare the entire baseball television broadcast package, with the World Series, both League Championship Series, all four Division Series and the All-Star Game included with the Saturday schedule. Fox's offer, said to amount to nearly $2.5 billion over six years beginning next season, would knock NBC and ESPN out of the playoff picture and return all of baseball's premier events under a single network roof for the first time since 1993, when CBS completed a four-year, $1 billion deal.

Damn Yankees. What more can be said - except for stating that they obviously have a pact with the devil? No other rational explanation exists for this baseball madness. While we were sleeping again, the New York Yankees came back Thursday to skin and gut the Arizona Diamondbacks. Same plot, different leading man: Ninth inning and two outs, the two-run homer and then, later into that good night, a 3-2 lead in the series going back to some place called Phoenix. Yankee Scott Brosius hit the home run this time - but it might as well have been Regis or George Costanza.

The Major Indoor Soccer League's decision to schedule championship series games in Milwaukee and St. Louis, without knowing if those two teams will even be in the finals, seems a risky step. But the league is willing to gamble on small crowds in the stands for a chance to draw a national television audience. MISL commissioner Steve Ryan said the decision "enhances the marketability of the championship finals for national television." Six of the league's seven owners agreed to set the dates and begin selling tickets as part of a plan to get a national television contract and increase the league's credibility.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland and Navy said all the right things about continuing their series, but with the Terps moving to the Big Ten Conference this summer, its likely that their annual rivalry will have to move from late April and early May to February or early March. “Our goal is to keep it going,” coach John Tillman said after No. 7 Maryland's 12-6 victory over the Midshipmen on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. “I think it's pretty important to a lot of people around here. … We understand the importance and the history of the rivalry.

How cold will it be Saturday night, when the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants meet in the Motor City for Game 3 of the World Series? Forty-three degrees, with temperatures dipping into the upper 30s by game's end, predicts meteorologist Jim Madaus, of CBS 62 in Detroit. "The [football] Lions have it better," Madaus said. "They play indoors. " The 1979 Orioles had it worse. It was a wintry 41 degrees at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 10 as they played host to the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 1 of the World Series - and downright frosty some 3 hours and 18 minutes later, after what was then the longest night game in the history of the Fall Classic.

Orioles manager Dave Trembley has effectively kept his composure throughout this train wreck of a season, answering the same questions day after day about his club's inability to win close games, hit in clutch spots, keep key players healthy and stay away from mental mistakes that continually haunt the team. After Sunday's 4-3, 10-inning loss to the Washington Nationals, Trembley's frustration -- and perhaps the pressure of being on the hot seat as his club enters a day off with a majors-worst 14-31 record -- boiled over.

TORONTO -- The Philadelphia Phillies have gotten a lot of mileage out of their image, but they will come up against a veteran pitcher tonight who has merged image and performance into an almost unbeatable postseason combination.Right-hander Dave Stewart may not be the same pitcher who won 20 games or more four years in a row during the Oakland Athletics dynasty, but you wouldn't have known it by his performance in the American League Championship Series. He went 2-0 against the Chicago White Sox to win AL Championship Series MVP honors and embellish his reputation as the biggest of this era's big-game pitchers.

NEW YORK - A smile spread across Derek Jeter's face last night as a jagged portion of Kurt Abbott's bat lay at his feet. He could appreciate every part of the Subway Series, comical or otherwise, and allow himself to have fun. There were no token gestures. Jeter's home run in the sixth inning tied Game 5 and tightened the collars of the New York Mets, who needed a win to extend their season. He had delivered another hit in October. No need to stop the presses. His touch in the postseason remains 14-karat, and he has the hardware to prove it. Jeter was named Most Valuable Player in the 2000 World Series shortly after Luis Sojo bounced a two-out single into center field in the ninth inning to give the Yankees a 4-2 victory over the Mets at Shea Stadium.

NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees' star-studded lineup received a rather painful reality check yesterday. A few of the Tigers' young arms made the Yankees' band of All-Star hitters look like a flailing Triple-A squad as Detroit won Game 2 of their American League Division Series, 4-3, leaving New York in a tenuous spot. The Yankees surrendered home-field advantage in the best-of-five series and must win two of three to keep alive their quest for their first world championship since 2000.

If a classic World Series game is played in Houston but no one in New York is watching, does that mean it wasn't really a classic? It's a question hanging in the air as the Houston Astros vs. Chicago White Sox - a series that features tight games, fresh storylines and two of the country's largest cities - draws some of the poorest television ratings in the history of the Fall Classic. "You've got terrific teams, you've got great players, great stories, but it's just not enough to capture that national interest," said Bob Gutkowski, a sports television consultant and former president of Madison Square Garden.
