JUPITER, Fla. -- Sidney Ponson became the first Orioles pitcher to go six innings yesterday. He had to navigate some choppy waters to get there. At times, the waves were over his head. Looking to balance an uneven spring, Ponson raised more questions about his readiness for an April 5 start at Camden Yards after giving up six runs and 11 hits. He walked one and didn't allow a homer, the only positive developments in an 8-4 loss to the Montreal Expos. He also didn't record a strikeout.

TORONTO - Much bigger goals lie ahead for the Orioles, and their final regular-season series here is less about winning games than about fine-tuning for the postseason. Still, the Orioles don't want to trudge to the postseason. Following their 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Saturday, the Orioles have lost three consecutive games for the first time since being swept at Wrigley Field five weeks ago, and for just the second time since the All-Star break. The loss also ensured that the Orioles will finish the regular season with just their third road series loss since the break.

NEW YORK -- For David Cone, yesterday's start in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series was a labor of love.Cone loved being in the postseason, but he labored through six innings before being removed.Bringing little else to the mound except his guile and resilience, Cone pitched badly enough to lose, yet departed with the score tied, 2-2. He had nothing to do with the decisive blow, a two-run homer by Rafael Palmeiro off Yankees reliever Jeff Nelson that sparked the Orioles' 5-3 victory.

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.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- If Jason Johnson is, indeed, part of the Orioles' rotation for the 2003 season, then Rick Helling and Pat Hentgen are left to compete for one spot. Helling appeared to state his case a little louder yesterday, even with a performance that left him dissatisfied. Facing the Montreal Expos, Helling permitted two earned runs over six innings in a 3-0 loss. The game was halted in the eighth because of rain. Manager Mike Hargrove indicated before Saturday's game that Johnson would be counted among the starters, though he couched it after the right-hander allowed six runs in the first inning and seven overall.

Erik Bedard shut down the Red Sox for six innings and a driving rainstorm did the rest, as the Orioles beat Boston, 6-1, in six-plus innings yesterday. Bedard, the 26-year-old left-hander who entered the exhibition season projected as the No. 3 starter, continued his March mastery with a tremendous performance against a Red Sox lineup that only was missing one starter -- outfielder Trot Nixon. Bedard didn't allow a runner to second base until the fourth inning, when Manny Ramirez singled with two outs and David Ortiz drove him home with a double.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- For five innings the Orioles were held to one hit by Oakland Athletics starter Gil Heredia and found themselves trailing 5-0. Their answer was one of the most convincing this season.Battering one of the league's better bullpens with 11 hits and consecutive home runs during the next three innings, the Orioles rallied for seven unanswered runs to reward solid relief work by Doug Johns (1-1), Jesse Orosco and Arthur Rhodes. The uplifting result was a 7-5 reversal before 26,247 at Network Associates Coliseum.

Whether Kevin Gausman's strong start Thursday night, in which he shut down a Toronto Blue Jays team with one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball, solidified him a place in the Orioles starting rotation remains to be seen. But he has made it difficult for the club to do otherwise. Gausman held Toronto to just one run and five hits in six innings as the Orioles took the opener of their four-game series against the American League East-leading Blue Jays, 4-2, in front of an announced 17,403 at Camden Yards.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After an opening five weeks to the season that included rain delays, irregular start times and early-morning flights, the Orioles were looking forward to playing three night games with no risk of weather delays under the roof of Tropicana Field. They didn't account for a 19-minute eighth-inning delay when a set of lights went out along a catwalk connected to the dome's roof Tuesday night. But when play resumed - the row of lights still out - the Orioles were finally sparked by a big hit they had lacked all night.

Ubaldo Jimenez's Orioles debut didn't go poorly, but he served up two mistakes that cost him. The 30-year-old right-hander, who was signed this offseason to the largest deal (four years, $50 million) in franchise history for a free-agent pitcher, lasted six innings. He gave up four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six. The problem was two of those hits were two-run homers. David Ortiz absolutely crushed a 91-mph fastball to right in the third inning and Jimenez left another 91-mph fastball over the middle of the plate on a 0-2 count to Mike Napoli in the fifth.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez overcame a rocky first inning to allow two runs over five hits over six innings in a 3-3, 10-inning tie with the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday afternoon at Charlotte Sports Park. Jimenez fell behind 2-0 four batters into the game after allowing a towering two-run homer in the first inning to James Loney. Despite going deep into counts early, Jimenez avoided further damage in the opening frame and retired 10 of the final 12 batters he faced.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez turned in arguably the best performance by an Orioles starter this spring, tossing six scoreless innings in a 8-0 win over the Atlanta Braves on Friday afternoon. Gonzalez allowed just three hits with five strikeouts and no walks in front of an announced sellout crowd of 7,725 at Ed Smith Stadium.  “I was pretty happy about my performance,” said Gonzalez, who credited catcher Matt Wieters for calling several first-pitch curveballs.

Miguel Gonzalez was pretty down after Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays , a game in which the Orioles right-hander allowed three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings. Those numbers alone aren't disturbing. But Gonzalez allowed eight hits and four walks in his start. And for the third time in five starts, Gonzalez didn't complete six innings. “That was a tough one. First inning was great and then I just had to battle the other innings,” Gonzalez said. “It's tough to pitch against a team that is playing good.

Yankees' David Cone (7-3, 3.32) vs. Braves' Tom Glavine (17-11, 2.89)(records include postseason)What Cone throws: Fastball, a number of speeds on breaking balls. He loves to throw sidearm breaking balls and fastballs when he's ahead in the count against right-handed hitters.What Cone has done lately: Since his first outing off the disabled list in September, when Cone threw seven no-hit innings against Oakland, the veteran right-hander has been mediocre, very hittable. Cone gave up six runs in six innings in the Division Series against Texas, and the Yankees lost the only game he started in the ALCS against the Orioles.

After Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel completed his first half of the season with his fifth straight defeat in the Orioles' 7-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, manager Buck Showalter tried to positively spin the performance. Showalter said Hammel gave his team, “a chance to win, for the most part,” and put much of the blame at the feet of an Orioles' offense that managed just three runs and seven hits in what was basically a “bullpen” game for Toronto that featured six Blue Jays pitchers.

CHICAGO - When Scott Feldman walked into the Orioles' clubhouse U.S. Cellular Field on Wednesday, he saw several familiar faces from his days with the Texas Rangers, only in different uniforms. And when Feldman made his Orioles debut later that night against the Chicago White Sox, his old buddies helped pick him up in a 4-2 win in front of an announced crowd of 26,001 on Chicago's South Side. Chris Davis, who played parts of four seasons with Feldman in Texas, drove in three of the Orioles' four runs, hitting a solo homer in the fourth inning and breaking a 2-2 tie with a two-run double in the eighth.
