They were miserable in April. Suddenly in May they can't lose. They are the Marlins, whose hero-of-the-night Tuesday was Joe Orsulak, whose two-run single in a six-run eighth inning broke a tie and pushed Florida to an 11-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Miami. It was the Marlins' ninth win in a row, the longest streak in franchise history and in the majors this season.

Joe Orsulak glances at the calendar in his locker, counts down the days in his mind, winces and curses under his breath. Dammit, he tells himself, it's almost over. The Florida Marlins' home stand, their longest of the season, ends in four days. He'll be packing his bags for another trip, this time to the West Coast. He can't stomach the thought. "It's almost wasted time, you know what I mean?" Orsulak softly says. "You can't get that back. You can never get it back.

It took until the final weekend of the 1985 season for the St. Louis Cardinals to finish off the New York Mets and win the Eastern Division. Off their first meeting of 1986, it looks as if it could be more of the same this season. The Cardinals scored four runs in the 13th inning Monday to spoil the Mets' home opener, 6-2, before 47,752 fans at New York. "It doesn't look like it's going to stop any time soon," Willie McGee said after singling and scoring the tiebreaking run in the 13th.

Howard Johnson's comeback attempt with the New York Mets came to an end Wednesday when the infielder announced his retirement. Johnson, 36, met with General Manager Joe McIlvaine and Manager Bobby Valentine, and the team made it clear that Johnson wouldn't make it as a player with the Mets this season. McIlvaine said he wouldn't mind offering Johnson a coaching job. Johnson signed a minor league contract Feb. 10 and hit .129 in 31 at-bats this spring with one home run and two RBIs.

An organ grinder and his monkey made their rounds through Comiskey Park in Chicago. A barbershop quartet harmonized in the corridor. Popcorn sold for a nickel and general admission seats were 50 cents. The Chicago White Sox, who are leaving venerable Comiskey Park after this season for a newer model across the street, turned back the clock on Wednesday in a 12-9, 13-inning setback to the Milwaukee Brewers.

He's no Cal Ripken Jr. when it comes to durability, but Dodger third baseman Tim Wallach had hoped to end his career without ever having gone on the disabled list. But midway through his 13th season, Wallach was put on the disabled list for the first time July 18 because of a broken rib suffered the night before when he was hit by a pitch. "That's what upset me about it, that I had to go on the DL," Wallach said.

If it had been an emergency, Terry Whitfield would have been the Dodger catcher in the ninth inning Sunday afternoon. But it wasn't, according to Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda. So Steve Yeager ran for himself in the ninth inning, and that was more like a disaster as the Pirates defeated the Dodgers, 3-2, before 17,043 at Three Rivers Stadium. In the eighth inning, Dodger relievers Tom Niedenfuer and Carlos Diaz combined to walk in the tying and winning runs.

Just when it couldn't get any worse for the Baltimore Orioles, it got grotesque. The Orioles lost their 16th straight game to start the season, their trouble turning to travesty Friday night when the Kansas City Royals scored nine runs in the first inning and romped, 13-1. "It is embarrassing. It looks like we're starting to accept losing," fumed Baltimore Manager Frank Robinson, who unleashed an obscenity-filled tirade at his team in a closed-door meeting after the game.

Keith Hernandez drove in two runs with a single and a double, and Dwight Gooden pitched a six-hitter Tuesday night to lead the New York Mets to a 4-2 victory that spoiled the Pittsburgh Pirates' 1986 home opener and the debut of its new owners, front office and Manager Jim Leyland. Gooden, last year's Cy Young Award winner, struck out six and walked one in going the distance in his debut. The 21-year-old right-hander withstood a threat in the ninth.
