Subtract last week's two-game fiasco in Cleveland and the Orioles have won six of their last nine. And they will be running into an Indians team that is slumping (five losses in a row) and zTC weary (coming off a 14-inning loss in Tampa Bay last night). The Central leaders, 9-10 on the road, obliterated the Orioles by a combined 20-10 last week. Cleveland battered Orioles pitching for 26 hits. Drabek was 1-2 with a 5.19 ERA in three starts vs. Cleveland last year. Mussina, who has not allowed a run in 16 2/3 innings since leaving the disabled list, was nothing short of dominant. In four starts, including two in the ALCS, he was 2-0 with a 1.16 ERA vs. the Indians. Geronimo Berroa will miss the trip with a torn foot tendon. The Baltimore stop on a promotional tour for Chief's latest video, Right Field My Way, has been reset for Aug. 21-23. First baseman Jim Thome leads the club with a .352 average. Five of his 29 RBIs came in the Indians' May 6 win over the O's.
