After another quality start Monday night, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman again gave credit to catcher Nick Hundley for being “right on with every pitch.” It has become a trend now. Hundley has caught Tillman's last six starts, and their numbers together have been fantastic. In 12 games with Hundley behind the plate, Tillman has a 2.67 ERA and opponents have hit just .205 against him. In seven starts with Caleb Joseph catching, Tillman's ERA is to 5.29 and opposing batters have a .287 average.

Two Anne Arundel County men who have joined a nationwide effort to collect baseball equipment for Americans serving in Iraq share more than the typical desire to cheer up the troops: They used to be in the military, too. Duane Cordrey of Glen Burnie graduated from the Naval Academy in 1990 and served in Operation Desert Storm, while Mel Sykes of Annapolis has served in Vietnam, Germany and the United States. Both understand the stresses - and boredom - of being overseas, and that's why they support the new effort started a few weeks ago by a Minnesota contractor in Iraq.

Colin Valentine, 14, is pitching diplomacy by sharing his passion for baseball with children who know little of the sport, lack even rudimentary equipment and have few opportunities to indulge in the American pastime. The Hampstead youth rallied his community into a campaign for gently used baseball equipment. Students, recreation leagues and coaches joined the drive that resulted in a shipment of nearly 500 pounds worth of bats, balls and all things baseball to Iraq. "Who knows?" said the teenager.

It's bad for the batter. It's good for the team. And in baseball terms, it's a "sacrifice fly" ---- when a batter hits the ball, but someone on the opposing team catches it. Although the batter is out, a runner advances one base and is safe. For most baseball lovers, the phrase is just sports jargon, but for Thomas Eberwein, 28, and Christina Lenane, 24, the term provides inspiration. The two started Sac Fly Inc., a Harford-based nonprofit agency, last year. The organization asks community members and local baseball teams to donate old or extra sports equipment to underprivileged children in Latin America.
