On the field: Brady Anderson led off the first inning with a homer, and then Kevin Bass became the first Oriole to hit a ball on the fly onto Eutaw Street behind the right-field flag court, a 409-foot homer. The homer bounced into the open window of a second-story office in the B&O; warehouse. Bass said he walks Eutaw Street every day on his way to the ballpark.
In the dugout: Orioles manager Phil Regan said he really likes newcomer Terry Clark because he "throws strikes and he'll take the ball whenever you need him." Despite getting just a few hours of sleep, Clark pitched the ninth, giving up two singles but pitched out of trouble, getting a 6-4-3 double play.
In the clubhouse: Pitching coach Mike Flanagan talked with left-hander Brad Pennington before he left the Orioles' clubhouse for good yesterday. Flanagan said he told the left-hander to "get it all together and don't worry so much about so many extraneous things that are out of your control."
