SARASOTA, Fla. -- Chris Davis returned to the baseball field Friday, but it was a field far from the one the Orioles played on in Toronto. Davis was over a thousand miles away in steamy Sarasota, playing Instructional League baseball as he tries to remain in shape during his 25-game suspension for a positive amphetamine test. In his first game since reporting to the Orioles' Sarasota complex on Tuesday, Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk against a pair of 18-year-old Tampa Bay Rays prospects in a game that ended in a 9-inning, 3-3 tie. Davis - who will miss at least the first eight games the Orioles play in the postseason, should they advance that far - left Friday's game after three innings.

CLEVELAND -- Indians closer Jose Mesa made his World Series debut last night, but it was not a save situation.It was a survival situation.Mesa entered Game 3 in the ninth inning, with the score tied and the weight of the first Cleveland World Series in 41 years planted firmly on his reconstructed right elbow. If he blinked, the Indians would be in an almost impossible situation -- down three games with no historical precedent to show them the way back.Surely, he never had been in such a predicament before, but he was well prepared for the pressure.

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.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Not knowing whether ace Mike Mussina would be healthy enough to pitch by Opening Day, Orioles manager Davey Johnson said yesterday, is like "losing your security blanket."That said, Johnson should feel warm all over after Mussina's solid three-inning performance against the Florida Marlins yesterday. Mussina reported afterward that he felt no pain from the strained stomach muscle that sidelined him for almost two weeks."I feel good," Mussina said. "I'm looking forward to getting back out there."

It took three innings for Jose Mercedes to complete yesterday's start, and for a Minnesota Twins scout to vacate the premises upon the pitcher's removal from the game. A short day's work, indeed. The Orioles completed a fractured homestand by breaking down at critical junctures, allowing every Anaheim run to score with two outs in a 9-4 loss to the Angels before an announced crowd of 40,880 at Camden Yards. The defeat, the Orioles' 14th in their past 17 games, left them 2-9 in the second half and facing another makeup doubleheader tomorrow.

Southern of Anne Arundel pitcher Ken Misal had just 14 hours to rest his arm before he took the mound again in yesterday's continuation of the Class 2A state baseball semifinal against James M. Bennett. Given the way the Bennett hitters swung the bat in the fifth inning yesterday at Arundel High, it's possible no amount of rest would have sufficed. After managing one base runner in three innings against Misal on Tuesday, the Clippers broke loose for five runs on four hits against him in the fifth inning of yesterday's rain-forced continuation, rolling to a 5-1 win over the Bulldogs and securing a spot in Saturday's state championship game against Liberty.

Trevor Gott lets his arm do his talking. The right-hander struck out nine in three innings, didn't give up a hit and walked one to lead Southeast Lexington, Ky., to a 2-0 victory over West Raleigh, N.C., in a matchup of 2-0 teams in the Cal Ripken 12-and-under World Series in Aberdeen yesterday. "I just don't like to talk, but, yes, I expected it to be a good game with them," said the shy Gott, who kept his head down as he barely responded, though several of his teammates were standing around him. The win clinched a berth out of the American Division for Friday's single-elimination playoffs.

Glen Burnie coach Bob Broccolino couldn't remember the last time his team had beaten Chesapeake. Maybe it was 1989, the year the Gophers won the Class 4A state championship. All he knew for sure was there were plenty of frustration.Yesterday almost became another one of those times.Third-ranked Chesapeake rallied for three unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and had the winning run at the plate, but the top-ranked Gophers escaped with a 6-4 victory in Pasadena.The Cougars (3-1)

Quote: "I just congratulated him on the year and told him to enjoy the journey. You're not going to have this year every year."- Rangers manager Johnny Oates, on his conversation with White Sox counterpart Jerry Manuel. It's a fact: Adam Kennedy needs 14 hits to become the third Angel with at least 150 hits his rookie year. Wally Joyner had 172 in 1986 and Devon White 168 in 1987. Who's hot: Royals starters have pitched five complete games in their past 19. Who's not: The Twins' Eric Milton lasted just 3 1/3 innings, his shortest start since going just three innings against the Red Sox on the Fourth of July.

With three consecutive wins against the Texas Rangers, including Wednesday's come-from-behind, rain-soaked 6-4 victory, an obvious question has arisen. Manny Machado who? OK, maybe it's not really a burning sentiment at this point. But since the Orioles' Platinum Glove third baseman began serving his five-game suspension Monday -- leaving the Orioles roster short one player -- they haven't lost. “It's impressive, but it doesn't surprise me,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of his club's 3-0 record with 24 players.

KANSAS CITY, MO - Although he had been in the majors for parts of the past three seasons with the San Diego Padres, right-handed reliever Brad Brach admits he may have been a little jittery when he made his Orioles debut May 3. He allowed three runs while getting just four outs that day in Minnesota. He pitched in the next game as well - striking out one of the two batters he faced - before being sent back to Triple-A Norfolk two days later. “I'm definitely more comfortable this time,” said Brach, who was recalled Friday to give the Orioles a reliever capable of pitching multiple innings.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Making his second Grapefruit League appearance of the spring Saturday night, Kevin Gausman wore a pair of new prescription glasses in a game for the first time  - and had a formidable Red Sox lineup seeing double. Gausman retired the first seven hitters he faced on his way to three shutout innings in the Orioles' 13-2 win over the Red Sox at JetBlue Park. Gausman, 23, struck out three of the first four batters he faced, as Daniel Nava, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli all went down on split-fingered fastballs.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Right-hander Bud Norris continued to put up zeros this spring and the Orioles' offense touched up one of the Boston Red Sox's top pitching prospects to pick up a 7-3 win at Ed Smith Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Norris, who is expected to begin the season in the Orioles' rotation, threw three scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and striking out four. He hasn't given up a run in his five spring innings. “I felt pretty good,” Norris said. “The main thing was I wanted to work on my fastball command, get back out there for my second start.” Norris said his back tightened up a little in the second inning, but he pitched through it and said later that it was “nothing to worry about.” With his four strikeouts Saturday, Norris now has six, and one walk, in five innings.

TORONTO -- Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen pitched a three-inning simulated game -- a 47-pitch outing -- on Thursday at the club's spring training facility in Sarasota, Fla., throwing all of his pitches with no setbacks. His next step in his rehabilitation from a left oblique strain will be a four-inning simulated game on Monday. If all goes well there, Chen will rejoin the club in Baltimore for a work day with the team. Chen would then go on a minor league rehab assignment, where he would start with a five-inning stint by the end of the next week.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Storm Davis is listed as "day to day" after leaving Friday night's game with an inflammation in the arch of his left foot.If Davis is unable to take his regular turn Wednesday, Dennis Rasmussen will move up a day and take his place. That would put the veteran left-hander in position to assume Davis' spot in the rotation if necessary.Davis, who described himself as "sore" yesterday, has had trouble with his foot all spring, but Friday night was the first time he had to curtail activity.

Patterson's run Corey Patterson struck out his first three times at bat, but what he did in the 10th inning made up for it. Patterson led off by singling up the middle. After stealing second base, he tagged up and went to third on a fly to shallow right field. He scored the winning run on Nick Markakis' single. Jenks throws it away White Sox closer Bobby Jenks came into the ninth with a 6-4 lead, but the All-Star managed to cough it up. After Aubrey Huff's one-out RBI single brought the Orioles within one, Jenks retired Ramon Hernandez and got two strikes on Jay Payton.

Making just the sixth professional start of his career, Orioles first-round draft pick Kevin Gausman was thrown into the middle of a playoff series on Friday night. Gausman, the No. 4 overall pick in this June's first-year player draft out of LSU, made his debut for Double-A Bowie, starting Game 3 of the Eastern League semifinals for the Baysox. The 21-year-old right-hander recorded his best start as a pro, throwing three shutout innings against the Akron Areos, allowing just two hits and striking out a career-high five and walking none.

Despite rapping out 10 hits and limiting the host-team Staten Island Yankees to just three on Tuesday night, the Aberdeen IronBirds could not manage to plate more than one run in a 4-1 defeat. With the loss, Aberdeen's fourth straight after a Friday-night victory over Brooklyn, the IronBirds fell to 2-7 on the year, and through Tuesday were at the bottom of the New York-Penn League's McNamara Division. Aberdeen's three pitchers, starter Jorge Rivera, David Richardson and Enrico Jimenez, were stingy with the hits, surrendering just two singles and a double, but they ran into problems with walks, as the three issued eight combined bases on balls.
