Rookie Steve Johnson hadn't started a game in almost a month when he took the mound in the first game of Monday's doubleheader. He didn't really care about the gap in starts. He's a local kid pitching in Baltimore's first pennant race in 15 years - really, that's plenty for him right now. "This is what you look for, pitching in a playoff race," said Johnson, the St. Paul's graduate and son of former Oriole Dave Johnson. "Just wanting my team to win, pitch in a big game, try to get them out. … This is a lot of fun. " Johnson (4-0)

BOSTON - Even when Travis Driskill was thriving in a starting role for the Orioles earlier this season, several baseball evaluators suggested he was best suited for a middle-relief role. It was a great story. Driskill, a rookie who turned 31 this season, took a 6-1 record into the All-Star break after nine seasons in the minor leagues. But it was too good to last. Driskill leveled off with a 2-6 record after the break, and the Orioles entered September with Driskill back in the bullpen.

Anyone predicting back in February, as the Orioles gathered in Florida for spring training and the difficult task of separating themselves from fourth place, that they would take the field five months later with Jose Leon at first base and Luis Lopez as the designated hitter, move to the head of the class. Or head to the nearest casino and bet big. Facing 11-game winner Barry Zito last night, the Orioles broke out their latest right-handed lineup, which now includes Lopez after optioning Brian Roberts to the minors.

PHILADELPHIA - The path taken by Orioles pitcher Travis Driskill to the visitor's dugout at Veterans Stadium is blocked by a swarm of flying insects, so tiny they can't be seen unless packed together to create a fog. "Ah, they're not so bad," he said, declining to use the standard hand wave that reduces the chance of inhaling them. What about the ballpark itself, a round, dank building with soggy carpeting, rusted pipes and all the personality of a cadaver? "Actually, I don't mind it at all," he said.
