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.

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.
