With their AFC West lead down to one game, the San Diego Chargers have decided Stan Humphries' dislocated left elbow is well enough for him to start Sunday against the second-place Kansas City Chiefs.Humphries, who sat out last week's 10-9 loss to Atlanta, will play in a bulky brace."I'm getting used to going out there every day and playing with it," Humphries said.Since he joined them in 1992, the Chargers are 2-6 without Humphries."We're at a point where it's a big ballgame, a very important ballgame," Chargers coach Bobby Ross said.

My good walk began after an early supper: a short Jersey Boy from Isabella's in Little Italy. The Jersey Boy is an incredible little sandwich (grilled Italian sausage with rapini, and peppery cheese on six inches of baguette) heated in the brick oven in the small corner carryout at High and Stiles, where the neighborhood bocce teams gather for their evening games. Isabella's is not strictly a carryout; there are a few tables and chairs. But Tuesday they had the air-conditioning set on Polar Vortex, so I took the Jersey Boy with me. There was a shockingly blissful breeze and the temperature seemed to be falling, making the Inner Harbor feel more like Bar Harbor, so I decided to head for Camden Yards and the Orioles-Angels game.

Wei-Yin Chen probably would have completed seven innings on Tuesday night if it hadn't been for a 48-minute rain delay that ended his night with one out (and one on) in the seventh. He pitched well enough to get a win - nineĀ  hits, no walks two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings - but Alex Gordon's two-run homer against Brian Matusz tied the game at 3-3 in the seventh. Perhaps more important than the personal 'W' is that Chen (3.40 ERA) bounced back from a rough outing on Wednesday in Seattle in which he gave up five earned runs in four innings.

On the field: Among the Yankees' biggest problems this year has been the inability of their pitchers to keep the ball in the park. They have allowed at least one homer in 36 of their 50 games and a total of 70 -- second-worst in the AL behind Minnesota. Last night, they held the Orioles without a homer.In the dugout: Orioles manager Phil Regan went into last night's game praying that starter Jamie Moyer would pitch at least five innings and as many as seven to give his exhausted bullpen a bit of a break.

Quote: "I had all three [pitches] working, good velocity, good movement and good location. But once the K's are mounting up, you don't really realize it because you're losing the ballgame." -- Blue Jays' Roger Clemens, who struck out 15 and left a 2-2 tie.It's a fact: The Mariners' Bill Swift is 3-6 pitching with five days' rest. He's 7-0 with a normal four days between starts.Who's hot: Last season, the Yankees lost their 30th game on June 16, their 67th game.Who's not: The Yankees' Hideki Irabu was 6-2 with a 1.68 ERA in his first 11 starts.

ORONO, Maine -- Towson State baseball coach Mike Gottlieb said there is one hard and fast rule a relatively unknown team like his must remember when facing a national power like Mississippi State, especially in the postseason.Don't let the big-time team have any big innings.Gottlieb's Tigers forgot his rule in the first and sixth innings of yesterday's opening round of the NCAA Northeast Regional at the University of Maine. The result was a 10-4 Mississippi State victory and an uphill fight for Towson (27-22-1)

STRICTLY OUT of curiosity, I went to see Fever Pitch, the new romantic comedy starring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore. Maybe you know the story line: He loves baseball, she couldn't care less about it. That's why I went to see it. To me, that's more than just a movie plot. Are you kidding? That's my marriage. In the movie -- which is totally lame, by the way, save your money -- Fallon plays Ben, a geeky math teacher and die-hard Red Sox fan who wants to spend all his time at Fenway Park.

The Pasadena Saints baseball team already had one close defeat on its ledger yesterday when it stared at a 3-2 deficit with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. But Justin Greshko, with a little help from the opposition, prevented the day from being a total loss.Greshko drilled a pinch-hit double to left-center field that scored Darryl Keith with the tying run against Brooklyn. Then, in their next at-bat, the Saints evened their record in the Continental Amateur Baseball Association 18-and-under World Series at 1-1 when a throwing error by Brooklyn shortstop Danny Price led to a 4-3 Pasadena victory at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmans.

Now we know why Gary Bettman worked for David Stern, instead of the other way around.Both were staring at daunting labor-relations obstacles. Stern, the commissioner of the NBA, found a solution that enabled the games to go on. Bettman, the NHL commissioner who used to work for Stern, found that he needed a bodyguard.Stern's league now will have a monopoly on the sporting public's interest five nights a week, while Bettman's will sit idle, its momentum from last spring effectively hip-checked into the boards.

No matter how fruitless the recent past has been for the Toronto Blue Jays, their fans could always take solace in knowing they had baseball's most consistent pitcher in Roy Halladay. The 32-year-old right-hander won the 2003 American League Cy Young Award and finished in the top five in voting each of the past four years. But that streak will be broken in 2010. This offseason, Halladay was dealt to the National League and its two-time defending champion Philadelphia Phillies in a four-way trade with the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics that netted the Blue Jays three prospects, including highly touted pitcher Kyle Drabek, 22. It signaled the end of an era and the beginning of a rebuilding effort.

Vintage "base ball" comes to the county today with the debut of the Havre de Grace Dauntless, a team that will play by 19th-century rules and, eventually, wear old-style uniforms.Named for a club that played in the city nearly 150 years ago - probably against the Havres, the other local team - Dauntless is the county's first vintage group. Other 19th-century teams have been organized in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and New York. Fans will "see how the game was meant to be played," said Gary Wasielewski, a high school history teacher, city resident and team captain by virtue of having the only custom-made Dauntless uniform.

Many of the city's most prominent developers propose building Baltimore's new indoor sports and concert arena outside of downtown and pairing the facility with ambitious waterfront projects or struggling areas in need of a boost. Ed Hale wants the new arena in Canton, near his growing empire. Patrick Turner suggests Westport, where his $1.4 billion development is under way. Struever Bros. proposes a site north of Penn Station or keeping the current location downtown. Also possible is an 11-acre parcel south of the Orioles and Ravens stadiums, where state lawmakers are considering putting a slots casino.

Matt Leinart lost only two games in three seasons as Southern California's starting quarterback, twice leading the Trojans to the national championship and winning the Heisman Trophy as a junior. It took just two weeks as the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals for Leinart to match that loss total during his rookie NFL season a year ago. It took an additional month for Leinart to win his first game, against the Detroit Lions. "In college, we went out every single Saturday expecting to win, knowing that we would win," Leinart said earlier this week.

Bowie Baysox general manager Brian Shallcross routinely hears from parents who plead with him to look at up-and-coming players or from fans who question strategic moves the Class AA minor-league baseball team makes. They do not realize that his job is a different ballgame from that of the general manager of a major-league team. While the GM of the Baltimore Orioles or the Washington Nationals spends much of his time tackling player personnel issues, Shallcross' role is more like that of a business owner, juggling ticket holders, sponsors, vendors at Prince George's Stadium and community events involving the team.
