Scott Erickson was one of the least likely candidates to throw a no-hitter. After all, he was baseball's most hittable starter in 1993 and was a member of the season's weakest staff. So, no one was more surprised when he pitched a no-hitter Wednesday night than Erickson. "I really didn't feel that good before the game," he said after pitching Minnesota's first no-hitter in 27 years in the Twins' 6-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at the Metrodome.

Despite uncertainty about the health of Odalis Perez, the Dodgers demoted Scott Erickson to the bullpen Sunday, creating two holes in the starting rotation. Perez will be placed on the disabled list today or Tuesday because of shoulder pain. The left-hander did not throw the bullpen session he had scheduled because he felt pain playing catch Saturday.

Before he pulls on his uniform and the black shoes that have become his trademark, before he reviews the opposing hitters or warms up in the bullpen, Minnesota right-hander Scott Erickson unfailingly observes one ritual. He calls his mother. "Her big words to me are 'Good luck.' I have to hear those two words," said Erickson, who adopted the habit of phoning home the night before he pitched while at the University of Arizona. "She'll say a few things if I didn't do a good job the last time out.

After sending Hideo Nomo out to collect losses for the entire first half of last season, you would think that Jim Tracy might have learned his lesson. Yet, here we go again with Scott Erickson. When a pitcher has a 7.26 earned-run average in the middle of May and he has not put together a respectable major league season since 1999, there is no reason to think he is going to turn things around. Every game counts, Jim Tracy. Please, pull the plug on Scott Erickson. Dodger fans can get to the park earlier if they want to see the opponents take batting practice.

The old No. 15 worn by Davey Lopes and Shawn Green appears odd on the back of a pitcher, but so be it: Scott Erickson, the Dodgers' newest No. 15, has all but won a job in the starting rotation. "Is it safe to say Scott Erickson is pushing his way toward a spot on this club?" Manager Jim Tracy said. "I'd say he's definitely headed in the right direction." Erickson pitched five innings Tuesday, giving up all three runs -- on two home runs -- in a 3-3 tie with the Atlanta Braves.

Erickson (3-1) learned late Thursday that he would replace scheduled starter Jimmy Key, who had a stiff neck. The right-hander walked one, struck out two and gave up only two runners past second base.

A second-degree assault charge against Baltimore Oriole pitcher Scott Erickson was dropped after prosecutors interviewed the player's live-in girlfriend, prosecutors said. Erickson was arrested July 22 after an argument with Lisa Ortiz that spilled out of their condominium and into a hallway and elevator. He was scheduled to appear before a domestic violence judge Sept. 6, but court records show prosecutors decided earlier this month not to press the charges.

Right-hander Scott Erickson seems to have left his best stuff in a Y2K shelter with the canned goods and distilled water. Since 2000 he is 12-28 with a 6.50 earned-run average in 311 1/3 innings. And he might be facing his last chance with the Dodgers. After giving up three home runs and seven runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday, he has a 7.26 ERA in 31 innings and has surrendered nine home runs and struck out only five.

The Dodgers rolled out another installment of Life on the Edge, starring Scott Erickson. In this episode, the aging fifth starter pitched six brilliant innings Monday night, lulling decision makers into believing he could venture into the seventh for the first time this season. Within minutes, a one-run Dodger lead was turned into a one-run deficit, Manager Jim Tracy was signaling for a reliever, and Erickson had the look of a gambler whose burgeoning bankroll had been blown on one lousy hand.

Sidelined since May 22 because of a herniated disk, Toronto pitcher Dave Stieb, who was 18-6 with a 2.93 earned-run average last season and won 16 or more games in each of the last three years, spent most of the summer in rehabilitation at his home in Gilroy, Calif. Stieb said that when the condition was at its worst, he was unable to walk or bend to tie his shoelaces and feared that surgery might be needed. He is still not able to pitch, but he is in uniform, trying to feel a part of the team.

It figured Scott Erickson would right himself in Tiger Stadium. The Baltimore Oriole right-hander pitched a five-hit shutout to end a career-worst five-game losing streak with a 5-0 victory Sunday over the Detroit Tigers at Detroit. "It took a while, unfortunately," he said. "It's been a struggle to get here. I've been working hard and it finally paid off. I finally threw some strikes."
