The injuries couldn't have come at a worse time for second-seeded Maryland (18-2-1), which continues its bid for a return trip to NCAA soccer's final four when it meets 15th-seeded Akron (15-4-2) in a round-of-16 game today at 1 p.m. at Ludwig Field in College Park.

Making just the sixth professional start of his career, Orioles first-round draft pick Kevin Gausman was thrown into the middle of a playoff series on Friday night. Gausman, the No. 4 overall pick in this June's first-year player draft out of LSU, made his debut for Double-A Bowie, starting Game 3 of the Eastern League semifinals for the Baysox.

Awakened by the phone, the Morgan State football coach fumbled to answer it and peered at the clock. It was 1 a.m. This can't be good news, Donald Hill-Eley thought.
