BALTIMORE, JULY 14 -- Phil Bradley singled off Terry Leach with none out and the bases full in the 11th inning to give the Baltimore Orioles a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins tonight at Memorial Stadium. It was Baltimore's fifth victory in six games.

Mike Devereaux began the inning with a single to shortstop. Bill Ripken tried to bunt, but the Twins pitched out. Ripken then singled to center, moving Devereaux to second. Steve Finley did bunt, and Leach botched the pickup for an error.

That brought up Bradley, who fresh off the disabled list won the first game of Friday night's doubleheader with a pinch-hit grand slam but tonight left the bases loaded to end the ninth. He hit a liner to right-center to make a winner of Mark Williamson (7-1), who pitched 3 2/3 innings of hitless relief.

With John Mitchell holding the Twins hitless until the sixth, and Randy Milligan and Sam Horn hitting home runs, the Orioles had carried a 2-0 lead until Dan Gladden doubled home two runs in the seventh.

"I'm not going to be happy with one hit every 10 or 11 at-bats, but I feel like I'm making progress," said Bradley, who was zero for nine between his game-winning homer and his game-winning single. "I have a tendency to want immediate results. My wife told me today not to get too carried away. I'm just trying to have good at-bats and rebuild the foundation. I'm kind of starting all over again."

Horn led off the ninth with a single against reliever Tim Drummond. Brad Komminsk ran for Horn, and Craig Worthington came up wanting to sacrifice but wound up hit by pitch he had squared around for. Joe Orsulak pinch-hit for Rene Gonzales, but the Twins intentionally walked him.

Finley struck out on three pitches. Bradley grounded to shortstop Greg Gagne, who flipped to second for the force.

Mitchell's no-hitter was broken up by a bunt single.

But he had walked five batters and hit one by the time Kirby Puckett bunted safely with none out in the sixth and a runner on first. It was Minnesota's first hit in 27 at-bats going back to the sixth inning of Friday night's second game, when Kent Hrbek led off with a homer.

The Twins did no further damage until the seventh. Brian Harper led off with Minnesota's first hit to the outfield, a ground single through the shortstop hole. Paul Sorrento hit a line drive toward the hole on the right side, but it hit Harper, who was out and Sorrento credited with a single. John Moses lined a single to center that moved Sorrento to third and finished Mitchell.

Curt Schilling entered, and Gagne hit a blooper. Right fielder Finley sprinted in, made the catch, then slipped trying to plant to throw. He slid several feet on his backside, kicking up a virtual roostertail of water. But Sorrento held third.

Schilling got ahead of Gladden, 1-2, but Gladden lined a two-run double to right-center.

Manager Frank Robinson praised Mitchell for "a tremendous effort. His game is getting ground balls and that's what he did. I would have liked for him to come away with a win, but it didn't work out that way. At least we didn't let it get away."

After Schilling retired Puckett to begin the eighth, Robinson called for left-hander Kevin Hickey to pitch to the left-hand batting Hrbek.

This was a big moment for Hickey. Robinson has said he plans to activate left-handed pitcher Joe Price from the disabled list Sunday. Hickey, whose baseball raison d'etre is facing left-handed batters, entered having allowed 10 hits and a sacrifice fly in his last 18 encounters with lefties.

Hickey came to the mound with a change in look -- the bottoms of his pants hiked up -- But he left without a change in luck. Hrbek singled. Robinson signaled for Williamson.

Asked after the game about activating Price on Sunday, Robinson said: "That's the plan. . . . We asked {Hickey} to get a lefty out and he didn't do it."

But he said "I don't want to get into" whether Hickey will lose his roster spot. "There are a number of ways we could go."

The Twins went in order in the fifth, Gladden making the last out on a hard grounder directly at third baseman Worthington. The crowd began buzzing. It calmed somewhat when Al Newman led off the sixth by drawing a walk, Mitchell's fifth. Puckett then pulled the plug.

With Worthington playing well back, Puckett precisely placed a bunt along the line. Worthington charged, but it was quickly apparent he would have no chance. At 5 feet 8, 213 pounds, Puckett may look like a fire hydrant, but he runs like a sprinter.

His feat was not appreciated by the fans, however. They booed, and the Orioles' bullpen went into action again. Mitchell, apparently unfazed by all this, retired Hrbek on a fly to shallow left and got Gary Gaetti to ground into a double play.

The Orioles got a runner to second in each of the first two innings, but failed to score against Roy Smith, who entered with a 4-0 record and 3.40 ERA in nine career appearances (42 1/3 innings) against Baltimore. Milligan, who doubled with two out in the first, solved the problem with two out in the third.

He lofted a 1-1 pitch over the left field fence for his fourth homer in five games. He has 18 for the season and 16 in his last 41 games, going back to May 27. The Mets' Darryl Strawberry is the only major-leaguer to have hit more homers than Milligan since that date.

Horn made it 2-0 in the fourth. He led off the inning with a bullet just inside the right field foul pole, his fifth homer of the season and first at Memorial Stadium as an Oriole.

"I feel better about the way we are playing," Robinson said. "We're playing a more consistent type of game day in and day out. We're doing a lot of things right. We're giving ourselves a chance to win."
