The umpires who had threatened to boycott the playoffs after Roberto Alomar spat in one of their brethren's face last week, did some to work.
As did Alomar who took his spot at second base while being serenaded with a chorus of boos by his home fans.
But once the Orioles and Indians got game one of their series underway they were hitting instead of spitting.
Brady Anderson leads off the game with a solo homer to right and it's 1-to-nothing Orioles.
The Indians Manny Ramirez would answer that with a solo shot of is own to left field. It's 1-to-1 in the top of the second.
B.J. Surhoff would answer that one for the Orioles with another solo blast to right center in the bottom of the second.
But the back and forth nonsense would end in the sixth when the Orioles got five runs, four coming off Bobby Bonilla's grand slam, that plates
