Orioles manager Buck Showalter hates having an emphasis put on one moment in a game, regardless of whether it's a win or a loss. To him, there are hundreds of situations in each game that ultimately determine the victor. So picking out just one drives Showalter crazy. In a game like Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Camden Yards, though, it's not a stretch to trace the outcome to a single decision in the fifth inning. With runners at second and third base and one out in a 1-1 tie, Seattle's best player, second baseman Robinson Cano, came to the plate with first base open.

This season my canoe was late into the water, proving again for me that when deprived of a pleasure I appreciate it more.The canoe is a remarkable craft. As transportation or as exercise, it is fully democratic. It can be paddled, poled, sculled, rowed and sailed, but one can't, like Hiawatha, guide it by thought alone.The expert canoeist Albert Van Siclen Pulling defined it as ''the most interesting link that unites the past and future of the outdoors. It may be the only still popular but truly aboriginal tool that we have inherited.

We generally don't do this. Something about the old warning, "If you do it once, you've got to do it for everyone. " But sometimes a letter comes in and it hits home. This one, from Michael Marlow, did just that. It needs no embellishment. It speaks for itself. I'd like to make it hard for anyone — that's you, punks — to get any pleasure out of stolen gains. And I'm hoping you, readers, will email the rightful owner, Michael Marlow (mfsmarlow@yahoo.com), or call the Baltimore City Watershed Rangers (410-396-9863)

A fierce storm that tore through the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center has sidelined one of its most popular programs: its educational canoe tours. High winds June 4 downed trees, knocked out power and phone lines and destroyed eight of the Edgewater facility's 10-canoe fleet, along with a canoe shed and a canoe stand recently built by a volunteer Eagle Scout. Canoeing programs at SERC have been suspended until further notice, center officials announced last week. The hiking trails have been cleaned of debris and electricity restored - after being out for up to 67 hours - but the solution is not as simple for the canoe program.

And embarrassed.Mr. Leo, 24, a Bethlehem Steel worker who lives in the 3100 block of Wallford Drive, said that he "had a couple of days off" and that he decided to take his canoe on an overnight trip.On Wednesday afternoon, he slipped his canoe into Herring Run in Baltimore.Things went well the first day, and he camped out. But yesterday morning, after he paddled down Moore's Run and into Back River, the wind picked up. The waves developed a 1- to 2-foot chop after he passed under the Eastern Avenue bridge.

From: Horse Heaven Hills, Washington Price: $30 Serve with: Roast beef, leg of lamb The red wines out of Washington state just seem to get better and better. Maybe it's climate change, but this state is increasingly closing the gap with the Napa Valley in cabernet quality. This wine is a riveting, intensely flavored red with penetrating black cherry, game, wild berry and herb flavors. Despite its youth, it's quite drinkable but with the backbone for long aging. My apologies for recommending another pricey red wine, but this one more than earns its price.

Once thought to be a somewhat out-of-the-way spot for winter ski trips and summer getaways from the scorching heat, Deep Creek Lake and the adjacent Wisp Resort could become "the No. 1 - bar none - adventure sports destination spot in the world" if Todd Copley has anything to do with it. Toward that goal, Copley's Deep Creek 2014 LLC will be helping run next weekend's USA Canoe Kayak Slalom Team Trials there, as well as the sport's world championships in...

Spring is a time for new beginnings, and that includes new hobbies. As the air gets warmer and the days last longer, it's the perfect time to try out a new outdoor sport. The Baltimore region offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun, from biking to paddleboarding. Thanks to local retailers that rent sporting equipment, budding outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen can try out new hobbies without investing too much money. Gary Weeden, of Annapolis boat and bike rental shop Paddle or Pedal, likens renting to test-driving a car. "Before you spend your money, this is a great way to try things out. Like with cars: Before you buy, rent and say, 'This is what I like and don't like.' " "If someone hasn't been on a bicycle for a while, and they're not sure of the type of bike they'll want to purchase, we offer several types they can try out at low cost," adds Jim White of Monkton Bikes.

The thing that bothered me about the Kansas City fans' treatment of Robinson Cano at the Home Run Derby wasn't the boos. I thought it was, until I realized that if I were a Kansas City fan, I would've booed too. I think the thing that really bothered me about the Home Run Derby, the thing that made me and others squirm in our couches on Monday, was that it wasn't fun. They yelled at his mother in the bathroom. His dad was dead serious. Cano wasn't laughing. And sure the fans in Kansas City were laughing, but they were laughing at Cano's misfortune, which is certainly their right as paying fans, but it wasn't fun, and forgive me but sports are still supposed to be fun, right?

A report of a capsized canoe, possibly with a body trapped underneath, had rescuers combing the waters of Gunpowder Falls in Baltimore County for more than two hours yesterday, but no body was found, county fire officials reported. Water rescue and medical units were called to the waterway just south of Masemore and Bunker Hill roads about 5 p.m. after a fisherman observed the overturned canoe lodged against a tree in Gunpowder Falls - with what appeared to be a man inside. Rescuers including county fire units, Maryland Natural Resources Police and the State Forest and Park Service ended the search about 7:30 p.m. Heather Lynch, a Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman, said that no equipment was found inside the canoe and that it appeared to be a privately owned craft that was blown into the waterway.
