Nice fellow, Lenny Webster. Husband and father. Active in the community. Pretty good catcher. Fair hitter. Part-timer mostly during eight years of bouncing around: Minnesota, Montreal, Philadelphia, now the Baltimore Orioles. Never would have dreamed he'd be at the center of something like this. "Bizarre," is the way he put it Sunday night. "All I can say, man, is that it's very bizarre."

The ruling that Omar Vizquel did not foul off a squeeze bunt attempt, which bounced off catcher Lenny Webster's glove and allowed Marquis Grissom to score the winning run in the 12th inning, wasn't Baltimore Manager Davey Johnson's only beef with home-plate umpire John Hirschbeck. "I asked for an appeal from the second-base umpire and didn't get it," Johnson said. "I was about ready to go crazy because [Hirschbeck] made the call and began walking off the field. Then he came back to hear me out."

Pinch-hitter Eric Davis' sacrifice fly in the eighth inning lifted the Orioles over Texas, 1-0, Monday night, dropping the Rangers two games behind the Angels in the AL West. Baltimore has won six consecutive games, including three in a row from the Angels over the weekend.
