Designated hitter Aubrey Huff homered with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Orioles a 1-0 win over Tampa Bay last night. Huff played with Tampa Bay for five years before moving on to Houston and then signing with Baltimore in the offseason as a free agent. Baltimore starter Eric Bedard went seven innings, gave up three hits, struck out 10 and walked three. The third Orioles' reliever, John Parrish, got the win. Too bad almost no one saw it. The announced attendance at Camden Yards was less than 15,000.
* Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina helped get New York to .500 last night for the first time since April 21 with six strong innings in a 6-2 win over Texas. The Yanks got their derailed season back on track when they started playing the Rangers last week and went on a 5-0 tear against Texas.
* In a most fitting place, retirement-haven Arizona, Phillies left-hander Jamie Moyer and Diamondbacks lefty Randy Johnson combined for 88-plus years on the mound -- a MLB record for aged portsiders. Struggling Phils slugger Ryan Howard, hitting under .200 to start the game, smashed a pinch-hit grand slam to lift Philadelphia to a 9-3 victory.
