Last year, Vincent attended several games at Memorial Stadium, and he recalled vividly one afternoon in September. "It was the very end of the season, a wonderful Sunday afternoon game against the Yankees and the last series before the Orioles went to Toronto," Vincent said. "The Yankees were out of the race, and they won. I remember saying to Ell, 'This Is one of the great things about baseball. Here's a team totally out of it, with nothing to gain, and they're playing like it's the seventh game of the World Series, diving all over the field and making miraculous plays.' " Vincent also put in a plug for the Orioles' new Camden Yards ballpark. He said he has been briefed twice by club officials on plans for the stadium, and has been impressed. "I thought it was terrific; It fits with all my nerve endings," the commissioner said. $379 n $379 B n CASINO REBATE r 2 Air One Tours OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK S 1-800-338-8860 !

Bourque, who had been expected to miss his fifth straight game with a left hip bruise, played a regular shift, had one assist and was on the ice for all three Boston goals. Moog stopped 27 shots. He lost his bid for his first career playoff shutout in 56 games when Ron Francis made the score 3-1 on a power play at 13:48 of the third period. The Bruins open the best-of-sev-en Adams Division final at home Thursday night against Montreal. Boston avoided becoming the first team since the 1970-71 Bruins to lose in the opening round after compiling the best regular-season record. Hartford was eliminated in the first round for the fourth straight year. It has reached the second round just once in its 1 1 NHL seasons. Bourque, Boston's star defense-man, got a 15-second ovation when he got into the game 52 seconds into the first period. The fans were cheering louder 38 seconds later when he assisted on Byce's first NHL goal. "Just his presence on the ice gives everybody a little added confidence," Boston's Cam Neely said. His hip "felt a lot better than I expected it to be," Bourque said. "In this kind of series, the emotion takes everything away and you go sky high."

The Amerks established themselves on the opening faceoff, scoring 23 seconds into the game as Jody Gage tipped in a shot by Scott McCrory. The Skipjacks responded with two goals. Right wing John Purves passed from the corner to the left of Rochester goalie Darcy Wakaluk and left wing Nick Kypreos lifted a high shot from the slot into the upper part of the net at 2: 1 7, tying the score. Then Wickenheiser put Baltimore ahead for the first time at 7:48, backhanding the puck past Wakaluk on a wraparound. The goal was Wickenheiser's first of the playoffs. At the other end of the ice, Baltimore goalie Jim Hrivnak repeatedly frustrated the Amerks, stopping a series of shots during a Rochester power play. His tough play contin ued through the game. Jim played well, probably one ot the few things that went right." said Skipjacks defenseman Mark Femer. Jim played a great game. Too bad we wasted it in a loss," said Wickenheiser. "Hopefully, we'll keep him from facing 40 shots next time." Right wing Bob Corkum, also newly arrived from the parent Buffalo Sabres, finally drilled a shot home from Hrivnak's right at 10:51 to tie the game, 2-2. But the puck got past Wakaluk as the Amerks goalie seemed about to get control of it, at 12:37. The puck appeared to bounce off Rochester defenseman Ken Sutton's skate. Center Mike Richard was credited with the goal for Baltimore, which led, 3-2.

Oakland City Council rescinds Raiders deal By Barry Witt Knight-Ridder News Service OAKLAND. Calif. Acknowledging the public rebellion against Oakland's effort to lure back the Raiders, the City Council last night voted to rescind the deal and start all over again on negotiations to get its former National Football League team back from Los Angeles. The council technically could not rescind the deal last night because the item hadn't made the formal agenda, but the unanimous vote asked the city attorney to draw up the necessary paperwork to complete the decision next week. The council took no public comment on the matter and, unlike previous meetings at which the Raiders were discussed. Raiders backers were few in number last night to hear the bad news. "We're not going to fight our constituents when they have spoken," said Councilman Dick Spees, referring to the more than 30.000 signatures turned into City Hall last week demanding that the unprecedented 15-year. $428 million offer to the team be repealed or put to a public vote. Mayor Lionel Wilson appeared optimistic that a new deal could be reached that would be acceptable to everyone including opponents of the earlier offer. But other key players in the Raiders negotiations were not nearly as upbeat as the mayor last night. Wilson told the council that he spoke twice early yesterday to unidentified Raiders representatives and "they're receptive to reopening the matter for further discussion." But reached at home after the meeting, Jack Brooks, part owner of Terps' O'Donnell being projected ! as a second- to sixth-rounder O'DONNELL, from IF scouts got a chance to see his arm strength at the combines. Since then, he has constantly risen In status, and he has the versatility to play in any system. Scouts are also impressed with his size." Philadelphia Eagles pro personnel director Joe Woolley said: "He's not what you would call a sleeper, but a lot of teams were made aware of him at that combine, because he is very physical. He performed well In Just about everything." O'Donnell said he was pleased Just to make it through the physicals administered by each of the teams during the three-day combine. At one point, he had to hold 25-pound containers of sand In each hand while X-rays were taken of his shoulders, arms, hands and chest. "Basically, they are all pulling on you at once," said O'Donnell. "One doctor is twisting your knee to the left, and another Is telling you to twist it to the right. You just hope your knee is going in the right direction at the right time. "But I understand," he said. "It's like buying a used car. In the last 10 years, this body has been pretty banged up. They don't want to invest in faulty merchandise. They are investing a lot of money. They want it around for a long time." O'Donnell said at least 15 teams have worked him out either at Maryland or at their training sites. O'Donnell, who was taking graduate courses during last season, lives with his parents in Madison, N.J.

"I will have to talk to Al Davis the team's managing general partner) and see," Brooks said. He also said yesterday that Oakland's troubles have prompted other cities to ask whether the team would be interested in locating there, but he wouldn't Identify the cities. Don Perata, the chairman of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors who headed more than a year of negotiations that culminated in last ; , month's deal, said he saw little chance that further talks In the East Bay could succeed. .' "I think the opportunity has passed," said Perata. who added that -.' -Wilson hadn't talked to him, either. " : yesterday. Perata was upset Monday when Wilson announced he would ask the council to overturn the Raiders deal without first consulting with any county officials, who are the-,,-city's partners In the Oakland Coliseum and in the Raiders negotiations. Perata. reached at home after the council vote, said he'll look at whaJ if anything, the city can negotiate' with the Raiders, but he showed no enthusiasm for trying any more himself. "-J "I'm not going to put the pot on Zi the front burner and heat It up," he- said.
