The Orioles desperately needed to go through a game like the one that played out Friday night against the Indians at Camden Yards - one that helps a sputtering offense regain life. During the hottest day of the season so far - the game-time temperature at Camden Yards was a sweltering 100 degrees - the Orioles' bats finally started to heat up. In their 9-8 win over the Indians, a game that included five lead changes, the Orioles enjoyed an offensive performance not seen in two weeks.

The restaurant is a favorite spot for the music impresario, who is dining with his mother and two of his three children.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he would back the NFL in suspending players who deliver helmet-to-helmet hits. Vice president of football operations Ray Anderson told The Associated Press Monday that the league is considering suspending players in an effort to prevent and discourage the kind of violent hits that popped up in several games Sunday. "There's strong testimonial for looking readily at evaluating discipline, especially in the areas of egregious and elevated dangerous hits," Anderson said in a phone interview.

In a city steeped in the lore of the game, the Doyles are greenhorns, a first-generation lacrosse family. But the Towson brood is catching up fast. Four Doyle siblings have earned college lacrosse scholarships, and two - Jack and Conor - were named All-Metro Player of the Year at Gilman. Both now play for No. 9 Notre Dame (6-4), which hosts No. 6 Maryland (9-2) on Saturday. Egging them on in the stands will be their sister Caroline, a star at Notre Dame Prep who'll join her brothers in South Bend, Ind., next year; brother Casey, a seventh-grader at Gilman who also plays lacrosse; and parents Kevin and Grace Doyle, neither one of whom acknowledged the game until their kids did. "To us, lacrosse was always just another sport," Grace Doyle said.

Reed and Branch also slapped hands and the Patriots' wide receiver stayed in the game. That was one of several big hits for Reed in the game, including one on Julian Edelman that saved a potential touchdown.

Aubrey Huff has continued his antics in San Francisco, where he has been a hit in the Giants clubhouse. His magical thong helped them make the playoffs last year and he had some big hits on their run to the title. He also enjoys crying after wins and showing off his moves from the dance club , which he did for Showtime's “THE FRANCHISE: A Season with the San Francisco Giants,” which will be like “Hard Knocks” for baseball. I know Huff, who played for the Orioles from 2007 to 2009, thinks the Baltimore nightlife scene is horse manure -- well, he put it a slightly different way -- but it looks he got his moves at Power Plant Live or in Federal Hill.

Maryland's Fan Appreciation Day scrimmage was marked by big defensive plays. Did the fans appreciate the plays made by linebacker  Yannick Cudjoe-Virgil, defensive end Quinton Jefferson and others? It goes without saying that they would have enjoyed seeing first-string quarterback C.J. Brown and receiver-returner Stefon Diggs. The two were held out of the Byrd Stadium scrimmage so that coach Randy Edsall could observe reserve quarterbacks Caleb Rowe, Ricardo Young and Perry Hills.

As near perfect at Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel was on the mound Saturday night against the Braves, he did his share to help beat Atlanta with his bat. The Orioles put on a small-ball clinic in their 5-0 win over the Braves by moving runners over and getting key hits. And Hammel was in the middle of it, dropping sacrifice bunts in the fifth and seventh innings to put runners in scoring position. Both times, leadoff hitter Brian Roberts capitalized, hitting a RBI single in the fifth and slapping a two-run single in the seventh.
