Tonight in San Diego, Sean McDonough will be at the microphone for one of baseball's headline events, the All-Star Game (channels 11, 9 at 8:30, pre-game show at 8). As CBS' No. 1 baseball play-by-play man, McDonough has a national stage, and, though he might not command the salary paid some of the stars on display at Jack Murphy Stadium, it's safe to say he's comfortably in six figures.But it wasn't so long ago that McDonough was glad to pick up an extra few bucks by hitting the road with the Triple-A Syracuse Chiefs.

THE evening of July 3, 1944, 50 years ago, started out badly for the Baltimore (International League) Orioles. And though none of the thin crowd of 1,500 in the park near Greenmount Avenue and 29th Street (it held 10,000) knew it, the night would get worse.The Orioles and the Syracuse Chiefs finished the seventh inning in a 4-4 tie, thanks, on the home team's side, to hitting by Bob Latshaw and Sherm Lollar. The eighth and ninth were scoreless. In the 10th, the chiefs broke open the game with seven runs -- four on a grand slam by a 17-year-old shortstop named Kid Carson.

If patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, could witchcraft be the last resort of a slumping Triple-A baseball team?The Rochester Red Wings, who are mired in a slump during which they have gone without consecutive wins since a sweep of the Norfolk Tides on April 24-26, have gone the "double, double, boil and trouble" route to turn around their fortunes.It seems that a fellow named "Brother Wease," a popular morning drive-time host on WCMF Radio, employed the services of one "Jan the Witch" to go into the Rochester clubhouse last Wednesday and use various and sundry potions, incantations and spells to get the Red Wings flying again.

For Bob Schneider, the songs remain the same.He is never at a loss for words, or notes, when it comes to baseball."I have always been a huge baseball fan," Schneider said.

Stephan provides the proper Rx for Red Wings bullpenROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Todd Stephan's career goal is to be a pharmacist. He likes chemistry, and he knows something about the medical profession because his mother is a nurse.If the Orioles hadn't responded to a letter from Stephan asking for a job after the 1990 season, he'd be filling prescriptions instead of filling a hole in the bullpen for the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings.Stephan has been one of the team's most effective relievers. He has allowed three of 13 inherited runners to score.
