To a man, the Ravens insist that they don't have an explanation for why the team's offense has played so well at home and so poorly on the road. And as second-year wide receiver Torrey Smith wisely pointed out, if the Ravens knew the cause of the maddening inconsistency, they'd have it fixed by now. Either way, it's become impossible to ignore and if the Ravens are going to make a run at that elusive Super Bowl, they better figure it out soon....

Orioles switch-hitting  catcher Matt Wieters was the hero of Sunday's 2-1 win over the Nationals with his two-run homer in the eighth inning. And while it continued Wieters' domination of left-handed pitching this season, it was just his second homer from the right side of the plate. Wieters' split stats are incredibly intriguing. He's hitting .413 against left-handed pitching -- 215 points higher than his average against right-handed pitchers, even though eight of his 10 homers came from the left side.

DETROIT -- The long-awaited offensive breakout threatened to come Monday at Comerica Park, when the Orioles scored two runs and made Detroit Tigers ace Jeremy Bonderman throw 38 pitches in the first inning. However, Bonderman needed only 30 pitches to get through the next three, and the Orioles never could break the game open. The next day, they managed nine runners in 3 2/3 innings against lightly regarded Chad Durbin, but scored only two runs. They lost both games.

Player Key stat Grade Jeff Zrebiec's comment Matt Albers 28 games B+ Key in early bullpen success, his loss felt on nightly basis. Chad Bradford 2.70 ERA B- Allows a lot of base runners, though he has gotten big outs, too. Brian Burres 5.02 ERA C+ It hasn't been pretty, but staff-leading seven wins count for something. Freddie Bynum .179 avg. D Has struggled offensively, and defense becoming issue, too. Daniel Cabrera 129 innings B- Winless June hurt, but improvements clearly have been made.

Per your oft-repeated recommendation, I downloaded and installed Grisoft AVG anti-virus. I disabled Norton's anti-virus program. My computer works fine on Internet applications, but Outlook Express won't connect. Also, the computer won't always respond to commands. I removed AVG, enabled Norton and am back to normal. Any idea how to make AVG work? Also, you say in a recent column that XP has a backup program. I can't find it. - Ed Hutchison Let's start with your anti-virus problem. Simply disabling Norton's anti-virus isn't enough.

My subscription has expired for Norton's anti-virus program, and I am finally getting around to trying to check out a program you recommended years ago. Is AVG still around, and is it still free? -- Linda Gordon It's still available at free.grisoft.com. I really like Grisoft AVG and think it stacks up just fine with commercial programs. In the past several weeks, when I turn on the computer (Dell Dimension 4600 with Windows XP) as part of the boot process I have to run System Setup every time.
