Kevin Gausman 's start for short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Wednesday was expected to be brief, and it was as the right-hander went just two innings for the IronBirds in a 29-pitch outing. Gausman allowed one unearned run and one hit with one strikeout and a walk. Gausman retired the first four hitters he faced before he gave up a one-out single followed by a walk in the second inning. A run then scored on shortstop Austin Pfeiffer's errant throw as he attempted to turn an inning-ending double play.

BRADENTON, Fla. -- Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer was hit hard yesterday in his first exhibition game since 1984, leaving room to wonder just how much longer his improbable comeback attempt will last.Even Palmer wondered aloud after the Boston Red Sox had him up to his ears in line drives for two innings in the early stages of the Baltimore Orioles' 3-2 Grapefruit League victory at McKechnie Field. He gave up two runs, five hits and a number of hard outs, but he vowed to keep going despite growing evidence that his legs are not up to the challenge.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Mike Mussina wanted to get his pitches over for strikes yesterday. He did that. He wanted to make it through his two innings without injury. He did that, too.The rest was just details.Mussina allowed two singles and a sacrifice fly in the first inning and a one-out homer to George Williams in the second before being replaced by left-hander Terry Burrows in the Orioles' 8-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium.The right-hander could have dodged trouble in the first if a call had gone his way. Brent Gates was ruled safe at third base on Corey Koskie's single, though the throw from B. J. Surhoff easily beat him to the bag. Brian Buchanan then lifted a fly ball to medium right field, and Gates scored the game's first run.Mussina retired Matt Lawton to open the second, but Williams worked the count full and drilled a homer to right for a 2-0 lead.

BOSTON - The more important the games become in the postseason, the more New York Yankees manager Joe Torre leans on his skinny closer. Mariano Rivera went two innings again yesterday and allowed his first run since Aug. 20. It came in the eighth with the Yankees leading 4-1, and Rivera finished up for his 29th career save in the playoffs. While Boston Red Sox manager Grady Little has sorted through his bullpen all season for a late-inning stopper, Torre continues to rely on Rivera while expanding the pitcher's role.

Mussina, the Orioles right-hander who's recuperating from a strained muscle below his right shoulder blade, went the first two innings in the Bowie Baysox's 9-8 win over the Canton-Akron Indians last night and gave up two runs in two innings. The Memorial Stadium crowd of 12,460 was a Baysox record.The Orioles put a 50-pitch limit on the first start of his rehabilitation assignment.

First, the Orioles lost their starting pitcher to a blister. Then, their shortstop lost a line drive, which looked to be an out, in a white background. Then, the New York Yankees did what they seemingly always do, seize upon a small opportunity to create something big - in this case a 4-3 win over the Orioles in front of a sold-out Independence Day crowd of 47,355 at Camden Yards. The surging Yankees used designated hitter Paul O'Neill's two-out, three-run homer off emergency reliever Calvin Maduro to give Roger Clemens (12-1)

TAMPA -- Even though Orioles manager Buck Showalter said right-hander Mike Wright had been shut down with right elbow tendinitis, Wright pitched two scoreless innings Thursday in a Triple-A minor league game at Twin Lakes Park. Wright appeared to be OK and just had some minor shoulder soreness. Showalter said Wright, who is ranked as the No. 8 prospect in the Orioles' system, according to Baseball America, came into the trainer's room Wednesday at the minor league complex complaining of elbow discomfort.

SARASOTA, Fla. - It was only two innings of a spring training exhibition in the first week of March - not exactly Game 7 of the World Series - but Ubaldo Jimenez's Orioles debut Friday couldn't have gone much smoother. And that was a major relief for the 30-year-old veteran. “Definitely. You always want to make a [good] first impression,” said Jimenez, who threw two perfect innings in a 15-4 win Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies, striking out three. “It means a lot. Obviously, I want to go out there and be there for the team right away.” Jimenez is the club's highest-profile signing in a decade.

BOSTON -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said it during spring training - that he foresaw rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman pitching meaningful innings in September. And there weren't much more meaningful innings than the two perfect relief ones that the 22-year-old right-hander threw Wednesday night in the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Red Sox . In the win, which put the Orioles just one game out of the second AL wild-card spot, the O's bullpen threw 6 1/3 scoreless innings throughout a tie game.

The current Orioles treated a sellout crowd at Camden Yards to yet another extra-inning victory Sunday afternoon. The few fans that remained in the ballpark's lower bowl for the Brooks Robinson All-Star Game, however, caught a glimpse of the club's future. Left-hander Josh Hader (Old Mill) dazzled as the starting pitcher for the state's high school South All-Stars, fanning three batters in two innings. He gave up just one hit in the brief appearance before surrendering the rubber to allow more of the South's pitching staff to throw.

Chris Davis hadn't thrown a pitch in nearly six years, dating to his days as a draft hopeful playing at a small junior college in Corsicana, Texas. But more than five hours - and 15 innings - into the Orioles' series finale with the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday afternoon-turned-evening, manager Buck Showalter turned to Davis, the club's everyday first baseman, in the visiting dugout and directed him toward the bullpen to warm up. The Orioles had exhausted all other relief options - eight relievers combined to allowed one run over seven innings - in a game tied at 6. Davis shrugged.

On the field: Orioles third baseman Todd Zeile took third on a strange play in the third inning of the second game. Yankees starter David Cone whirled and threw to pick off Zeile -- but nobody was covering second. Cone's throw bounced off Zeile's back, ricocheted off second base umpire Ken Kaiser and rolled into short center field, and Zeile moved to third.In the dugout: Two innings later, Brady Anderson was on second and Roberto Alomar on first when Cone, at the start of his delivery, turned on his right leg, paused for a moment and stared at Anderson -- a la Luis Tiant -- before throwing his pitch.

SARASOTA, Fla. - In what has been a spring of watching the Orioles deal with injuries, one player that's on the mend had a nice moment Friday in the team's 6-5 win over the Boston Red Sox. Right fielder Nick Markakis who had just one extra-base hit in his first 12 spring at-bats, hit a wind-aided, two-run homer against right-hander Clay Buchholz in the third inning to break a tie and give the Orioles a lead they didn't relinquish. It was the first spring homer for Markakis, who is coming back from January abdomen surgery.

Buck Showalter thought Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada would carry some adrenaline onto the mound with him for his much-anticipated Grapefruit League debut against the Braves on Sunday afternoon at Champion Stadium. But when the Orioles manager looked at the stadium scoreboard radar gun on Wada's fourth pitch of his outing and it clocked Wada's fastball at 94 mph, he did a double take. Wada, known in his native Japan more for his deceptive delivery and pinpoint control than any blistering fastballs, had already struck out Braves second baseman Martin Prado on three pitches.
