ATLANTA -- Minnesota reliever Rick Aguilera stood in the center of the clubhouse talking to reporters. "Aggie!" manager Tom Kelly shouted. "Tell 'em about the beautiful swing you took."Aguilera and the Twins absorbed a 5-4 defeat in Game 3 of the World Series last night, but all anyone wanted to know about was his 12th-inning at-bat, when he became the first pitcher to pinch-hit in the Series since Don Drysdale in 1965.It would have made a great story: Helpless American League pitcher delivering a game-winning hit with two outs and the bases loaded.

The biggest thing to hit NBC's "The Voice" tonight was Baltimore's Nelly's Echo, a Nigerian refugee who wowed the judges with his rendition of Bill Wither's "Ain't No Sunshine," and who found a place on Christina Aguilera's team. Nelly's Echo -- the band and stage name of Nigerian native Nelson Emokpae --prompted both Christina and Adam Levine to spin their chairs with his oh-so-groovy take on the soulful classic, and undoubtedly won the audience's heart with his story. "We left Nigeria because of the political unrest," Nelson, 32, told host Carson Daly before performing.

On the cover of Back to Basics (RCA), her third album, Christina Aguilera poses as Jean Harlow, the 1930s movie sexpot. It's a classy retro look, a sign that the 25-year-old diva is ready for her close-up as the leading lady of the teen brat pack (Britney Spears, Pink, Beyonce) that emerged in the late '90s. The double-CD is designed as a response to those naysayers who saw her previous album, the 2002 release Stripped, as the work of a Disney singer-turned-nympho. Indeed, it was difficult to think of her leave-nothing-to-the-imagination videos from that era ("Dirrty," "Lady Marmalade")

In light of Christina Aguilera's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner during the Super Bowl, may I suggest the governor invite her to perform where the poem was inspired — at Fort McHenry during the July 4th celebration (if she is available). Or even better, next year will mark the bicentennial of the War of 1812 (even though the poem was written in 1814). The governor is looking for revenue. Why not kill two birds with one stone?

They really need to get it together. Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera are two of the most unfocused acts in pop right now. Their sound, their look, their kiss-my-you-know-what attitude -- all so embarrassingly contrived. As the two try on different guises, we wait, hoping that in the midst of their search they find something that resembles authenticity -- or better yet, the former Mouseketeers learn to just embrace whatever exists behind the masks. But that could take a while. "JT" and "Xtina," whose much-ballyhooed rescheduled summer tour stops at MCI on Monday, Aug. 25, have been on stages, delivering plastic Colgate smiles, over-rehearsed lines and choreographed-to-death routines since childhood.

CLEVELAND -- A contents label on Game 1 of the AL division series playoff between Boston and Cleveland would read something like this: Rain, 13 innings, comebacks, more rain, a corked-bat controversy, 14 pitchers, heroics, heroic failures.The Cleveland Indians won one of the most bizarre games in postseason history, 5-4, the winning run scoring at 2:08 a.m., on a bases-empty homer by Tony Pena. Boston sluggers Mo Vaughn and Jose Canseco combined to go 0-for-12, with four strikeouts between them.

The Minnesota Twins had this one all wrapped up. Bill Krueger tied the Orioles in knots for seven innings and stopper Rick Aguilera was in to tie up the loose ends. But that was before they fell victim to the curse of Camden Yards.The Orioles have been nearly unbeatable in their new ballpark, and last night they staged a comeback to rival anything that happened during the "Why Not?" season of 1989. They scored four times in the ninth inning off one of the best relievers in the game for a heart-stopping, 5-4 victory.

RoyalsThat was then: Kansas City, which hasn't made the playoffs since winning the 1985 World Series, was 13th in the AL in runs and 13th in ERA, then set free its leaders in wins (Tim Belcher), batting average (Jose Offerman), homers (Dean Palmer) and RBIs (Palmer).This is now: Payroll is already down from $36 million to $26 million. Next to go: Kevin Appier, Jeff King and Jeff Montgomery.Upside: Not that it counts, but Kansas City had baseball's best spring training record. First baseman Jeremy Giambi hit .372 in Triple-A; outfielder Carlos Beltran is a top prospect, too.Downside: The staff's 5.15 ERA was the worst in club history.

In response to Mary Lou Wickham's letter regarding Christina Aguilera's dreadful rendition of the National Anthem ( "Christina Aguilera: spreading the gospel of tacky ignorance," Feb. 8), I couldn't agree more! The Super Bowl was televised around the world, including to our troops in various locations who are always respectful of what it means to them and us. It was an embarrassment to hear her bastardize a song that should be sung as it was written! I noticed a number of the players being distracted, jumping up and down and not paying too much attention to someone who was more intent on glorifying herself.

Christina Aguilera might not be looking for redemption after she botched the National Anthem on Super Bowl Sunday. But if she is, she should consider giving it another try here in Baltimore. Hear us out, Christina. The Brooklyn Cyclones, a minor-league affiliate of the Mets, have offered Aguilera an opportunity to sing the National Anthem at one of their games this summer, but the Grammy Award winning singer deserves better than that. That's where Baltimore comes in. Christina, we know you " got caught up in the moment " as you said Monday, and that you're capable of getting this right.

Was I the only one to take offense at the disgraceful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at the Superbowl? Above and beyond the fact that Christina Aguilera flubbed the lyrics was her embarrassingly tasteless presentation of our national anthem to millions of people around the world. If we are determined to come across as a country of loud, ignorant barbarians, she does the job. Mary Lou Wickham, Glen Arm

Christina Aguilera's mangling of the national anthem at the start of Sunday's Super Bowl set social networks buzzing. Among those tsk-tsking on Twitter was Baltimore's own Enoch Pratt Free Library , reminding patrons near and far that the correct words to the anthem can be found at a branch near you: "Need to know the lyrics to the Star-Spangled Banner? Come to the Pratt tomorrow. We'll have it for you plus loads of books about it. " After all, the anthem has a special place in Baltimore's heart: The roots to the song about the 1814 British attack on Fort McHenry were immortalized in the poem by Marylander Francis Scott Key. Aguilera flubbed the line that's supposed to say, "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming" — she repeated an earlier line of the song with a word variation.

It was one of those everything-but-the-kitchen-sink shows. Christina Aguilera, the '90s teen-pop queen who in recent years has worked way too hard to prove how grown-up she is, brought her Back to Basics tour to Washington's Verizon Center on Monday night. And it was anything but basic. Much like her singing, the nearly two-hour show was sometimes thrilling, sometimes affecting but definitely over-stylized and, at times, downright exhausting. If you go Christina Aguilera performs at 7:30 p.m. April 28 at Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena.

This season has been one transaction after another for the Orioles, from the signing of Kevin Brown in April to the trade for Scott Erickson on Friday. But there's at least one major decision forthcoming -- next year's general manager.The contract of general manager Roland Hemond expires after this season, and his fate might rest on how the team fares the rest of the way. If the Orioles win the division and play deep into the postseason, they've made a great case for him. If not, owner Peter Angelos might look for a replacement.

My memories of childhood summer gatherings are bittersweet. Many of my relatives who were around then are either dead or halfway there: Mama Teacake and Ollie (my grandparents), Kay and Nita (my aunts), Ed-Lee and Miss Tootsie Baby (neighbors who were like family) are all gone. And several of my cousins, whose names I won't mention, are strung out or locked up. But back in the day, when things were cool and we were all together at Lake Catherine State Park near Hot Springs, Ark., or in my grandparents' front yard in Malvern, happy times and great barbecue seemed infinite.
