Left-hander Matt Taylor is enjoying one of the most under-the-radar strong starts to the season in the Orioles system this year with High-A Frederick, carrying a streak of 15 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run into early May. Taylor, a 6-foot-1 product of Middle Georgia College who was drafted in the fifth round in 2011, is holding opponents to a .230 batting average en route to a 3-1 record and a 1.32 ERA in six starts this year. He allowed two unearned runs in six innings April 26, and rebounded with seven three-hit, shutout innings in a win over Myrtle Beach on May 4. The only alarming stat from afar is his walks.

The number of women on corporate boards in Maryland increased last year, and for the first time, all businesses that joined the state's publicly traded companies had at least one woman board member, Network 2000 said in a report released Wednesday. The number of women on boards rose to 86 from 73 at the state's 76 publicly traded firms, the group said in its annual Census of Women Board Directors in Maryland. The number of women of color rose as well to 15 from 11. The increase is encouraging, "especially when one considers that for several years there has been little progress," said Katherine Bays Armstrong, president of Network 2000, a local group that works to increase the number of women in boardrooms and executive suites, in the report's introduction.

Maryland's top elections official expressed confidence Friday that the state will deliver absentee ballots to voters smoothly and on time despite a change in plans ordered just two months before the June 24 primary. The State Board of Elections decided this week not to move forward with a system that would have allowed voters who receive an absentee ballot through the Internet to mark their choices on a computer screen before printing the ballot and mailing it in. Linda H. Lamone, administrator of the elections board, said the agency will do what is needed to comply with the decision of the five-member panel.

The future of a system that would let voters download absentee ballots before mailing them in was cast into doubt Thursday when the State Board of Elections refused to move forward with part of the plan amid fears it would open the door to widespread fraud. The five-member panel declined to certify a system for marking the ballots on a computer screen despite assurances from its staff that the system was secure and ready to be used in this year's June primary and November general elections.
