Whispers Can the Angels catch the Rangers? They went 19-4 in the first 23 games outfielder Mike Trout started, including a 10-1 record in starts since he rejoined the roster in August. Trout was just named Baseball America's Minor League Player of the Year. … The Rangers went 12-11 in a stretch playing 23 games against teams with winning records. They believe that's when they would have collapsed if they were going to but aren't taking a playoff spot for granted, not with a season-ending series in Anaheim.

Angel, an aging 17-year-old giraffe born and raised at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , was euthanized Tuesday, officials said. Angel long struggled with leg and back pain, which worsened recently, Dr. Ellen Bronson, the zoo's chief veterinarian, said in a statement. "While we were able to provide her with pain medicine which made her more comfortable, we realized that her quality of life was declining and the decision was made to euthanize her," Bronson said. She is the fourth older female giraffe to die at the zoo since 2008.

Jason Hammel's bid to become an All-Star for the first time in his career took a big hit Wednesday night. The Orioles right-hander struggled through his worst outing of the year, lasting just 3 1/3 innings (his shortest outing of the season) and tying a career-high with eight runs allowed. Hammel entered the night having not allowed an earned run in his last 19 innings of work and yielded just six hits over his last two outings, one of them a complete-game, one-hit shutout at Atlanta on June 16. Until tonight, Hammel hadn't allowed more than four earned runs in a game this season.

The clouds didn't exactly part for the Blue Angels, but they lifted just enough Saturday afternoon, the rain stopped, and suddenly three F/A-18 Hornets soared past in tight formation over the southeast edge of the Inner Harbor — the show was on for the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Thousands of people gathered at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the national anthem waited nearly two hours for a glimpse of the team, as the rain sprinkled on and off, clouds lowered and lifted again, and the Blue Angels waited for safe flying conditions.

Scott Boras, often visible in his box behind home plate at Angel Stadium, remains in a stare-down with Angels general manager Tony Reagins over Adrian Beltre. There's no better fit for Beltre, but Boras is trying to get him the best deal possible. Texas has some interest, but it will disappear if the Rangers re-sign Vladimir Guerrero. … With Cliff Lee off the board, Carl Pavano is the most attractive free-agent starter available. He'll sign with the first team that offers him three years.

  Adrian Beltre's signing with the Rangers was another major blow to the Angels, who haven't added anyone more significant than reliever Scott Downs this winter. They had seemed a perfect fit for Beltre, as third base is a glaring weakness, but owner Arte Moreno believes increased payroll would force him to raise ticket prices. He has kept the Angels' average ticket price at $19, lowest in the American League according to Team Marketing Report. The Angels drew 3.25 million fans a year ago, ranking fifth in the majors.

Former Dodgers GM Dan Evans and White Sox assistant Rick Hahn are both under strong consideration for the Angels, although it remains unclear if Hahn formally has thrown his hat in the ring. Kim Ng, the former University of Chicago softball player who has been an assistant GM for the Yankees and Dodgers, is considered a serious contender, with Arte Moreno among the few owners who would be bold enough to hire baseball's first female GM. Evans and Ng also have ties to the White Sox. … The Athletics don't think coach Curt Young was what went wrong with the Red Sox's pitchers in September.

Robin Walker, unable to sleep, called up her online layaway account in the middle of the night, ready to make some grim choices about which presents her grandchildren wouldn't get. The answer, she feared, was most of them. She opened the first account, shocked to see the balance read "$1. " A computer glitch, she suspected. But when the second account said the same thing, as did the one after that, she started laughing. Someone, she began to realize, had paid all five of her layaway accounts down to a dollar.

Once again the popular preseason pick to win the American League West, Los Angeles has jumped ahead in the division with one of the best hitting lineups in the majors. The Angels are led by infielder Chone Figgins, who is in the top 10 in batting average and multi-hit games, and outfielder Torii Hunter, who is having another All-Star year with the glove and bat. The Angels' pitching has been disappointing - the staff has the third-worst ERA in the American League. The Orioles will catch a break as Los Angeles' hottest pitcher, Jered Weaver, isn't scheduled to start in the series.

As school assemblies go, this one was a winner. Austin Machin listened to a Blue Angels pilot speak for an hour at the Dundalk and Sollers Point high schools Friday, walked out and said, "I am at a loss for words about how awesome that was. " The 16-year-old wants to join the Navy SEALs right out of high school, and for him, the pilot was about as good a recruitment tool as he could imagine. Students from Dundalk and Sollers Point had dozens of predictable questions for Blue Angels pilot Lt. Mark Tedrow, who is in town for the Star-Spangled Spectacular, a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore and the writing of what would become the national anthem.

For six straight hours for four straight afternoons during one of the largest ship-hosting events in Baltimore history, all water traffic within a large rectangle in the middle of the harbor is being completely restricted by a cadre of law enforcement agencies. No tall ships, no personal watercraft, no dinghys. Period. Only the icebreaker A.V. Sandusky of the Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Coast Guard cutter James Rankin are allowed in the so-called box, and even they are not allowed to move.

  You've probably never heard of Claudette Colvin. And yet, had history twisted in a slightly different direction, she might loom as large in American memory as Rosa Parks does now while Parks herself would be a little-remembered seamstress. Ms. Colvin, you see, did what Parks did, nine months before Parks did it. In March of 1955, the African-American high school girl refused to surrender her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus. Local civil rights leaders had been seeking a test case around which to build their fight against segregation on the buses and briefly considered rallying around her. But it turned out Ms. Colvin had used some pungent language in defending her right to her seat.

Brian Matusz had already allowed 11 hits through five innings of work Tuesday night, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter wanted to see if he could scrape one more inning out of his left-handed starter. Showalter believed Matusz earned the right to go out for a sixth inning. He had allowed just three runs and thrown just 74 pitches. The manager wanted to put faith in his young pitcher. And beiginning a stretch of 13 games in 13 days leading up to the All-Star break, one inning would make a huge difference in preserving the Orioles' bullpen.

It was shortly after the All-Star break, about the time the California Angels started to leave the rest of the American League West in its wake, that Doug Melvin made an interesting observation.It is one that Orioles fans might not want to hear, or believe."Sometimes I think there are teams that almost have to hit bottom before they start to put things together," said the Orioles' former assistant general manager. "It happened to Cleveland, and I think that's what has happened with the Angels."

Based on the way the first five battles between the Orioles and Los Angeles Angels had played out, there was little question the season-series finale was going to possess its share of drama. So how about a scoreless tie that stretched into the 13th inning before the Angels finally cracked the Orioles' stubborn bullpen and avoided a sweep? Throw in a potential no-hitter that was thwarted by injury and you had just another ho-hum affair between two evenly matched clubs that could end up clashing again in the postseason.
