Fourth in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. Charles Lollar was at it again last week, the only Republican on stage with the three Democrats running for governor, wooing a crowd largely unable to cast a vote in the fast-approaching GOP primary. His Republican rivals skipped the event at a Silver Spring church, but as he has done throughout the campaign, Lollar focused on charming voters in a Democratic stronghold. The ordained preacher and former tea party activist spreads a spirited message about rising above partisanship.

On Orioles optimism The front office made some smart moves to shore up the pitching, and good pitching will always allow a team to have a chance to win. For the first time in many years, I feel very positive about this team. This year's team looks and feels different, primarily because of the pitching. Three starters who inspire confidence, a closer who, with one exception, has just been lights out and a bullpen that appears, so far, to have justified its costs. If the season ended today, we'd get the wild card.

Goucher's five-year reign as the Landmark Conference regular-season men's lacrosse champion came to an end when the Gophers fell to visiting Scranton, 8-7, at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Saturday. The loss was doubly damaging for Goucher (6-7 overall, 4-2 Landmark), which went from potentially being the top seed in the conference tournament to finishing as the No. 3 seed. Susquehanna (9-7, 5-1) — which claimed last year's tournament crown and edged Catholic, 7-6, in overtime Saturday — captured the regular-season title for the first time in school history and will have home-field advantage in the tourney.

Today's men's game Towson (3-9) at No. 12 Hofstra (9-4) America East semifinal Site: Hofstra Stadium, Hempstead, N.Y. Time: 7 p.m. Radio: WMTD (89.7 FM) Skinny: The Tigers nearly pulled off an upset at Hopkins, despite losing half of their starters and 11 players overall to a one-game suspension. Towson will be at full strength once again, but it most likely will not be enough to overcome a hot Flying Dutchmen team that has averaged 17 goals in its last five victories and is fresh off a blowout win over North Carolina.

Maryland calls to a 900-number advertising a contest to win a trip to the Super Bowl were blocked yesterday after the state attorney general concluded that the advertisement was deceptive.The ad, which appeared in the Washington Post's sports section Monday and yesterday, urged Redskins fans to call a 900-number for the chance to "win a $5,000 trip to the Metrodome for the big one."The ad's fine print did mention one hitch: Phone entries from Maryland, Virginia and Washington were void.So anyone who paid $3.30 a minute to call from those areas couldn't win the trip.

What political people are saying about Tuesday's Democratic primary in Pennsylvania: "Hillary Clinton had a good night but not a great night. Tonight keeps her racing around the track. But after 150 laps in the Indianapolis 500, she won't pass [Barack] Obama unless he runs out of gas." PETER FENN, Democratic strategist "The notion that Obama cannot attract core constituencies is only being tested in matches against Hillary Clinton. That's not an argument that he can't win them against John McCain."

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Maryland returned to the Barclays Center a year older and maybe a year wiser, but the Terps seemed to follow the same script against No. 18 Connecticut on Friday night that they did in a three-point loss to No. 3 Kentucky in last season's opener. Seemingly as nervous as they were against the Wildcats, the Terps fell behind early and by a lot - 12 at halftime, 17 early in the second half - before staging a furious comeback that, again, fell short. Junior point guard Dez Wells missed two shots in the closing seconds and Maryland lost, 78-77, before a pro-Terps crowd of 12,867.

Hoosiers, Spartans tough Shannon Ryan Chicago Tribune I'm tempted to say "all of them. " In this topsy-turvy never-know-what's-coming college basketball season it seems like everyone has a chance. This is a season in which five No. 1 teams have been displaced in five consecutive weeks after all. But by looking critically at the season, I'll give weight to teams that are consistent and have been warming up recently. Indiana fits the former, Michigan State fits the latter.

A half-century after a Navy quarterback launched his legend here with a win over Army, another might have done the same Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. Showing why some have begun mentioning his name in the same paragraph, if not the same sentence, as the legendary Roger Staubach, freshman Keenan Reynolds displayed the poise -- and strong right arm -- that helped turn around Navy's season. Reynolds led the Midshipmen back from a rare fourth-quarter deficit against their service academy rivals, leading Navy on a late 80-yard drive and scored what turned out to be the winning touchdown in a 17-13 victory before 69,607 -- including Staubach.

Dan Haren, one of baseball's best right-handed starting pitchers for a half-decade, needed to choose this winter where to continue his career. He used a rationale that, while sound, for generations would have constituted pure fantasy. Haren came to pitch in the nation's capital, home to so many woebegone seasons, to join a first-place powerhouse, to spray champagne and to hoist a trophy. He picked the Washington Nationals, two seasons removed from 298 losses in three years, because he saw in them the makings of a champion.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Ninth-seeded Loyola faced a tough enough task yesterday at the HSBC Arena for its Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference quarterfinal with top-seeded Iona. A 13-0 hole from the start only made its job tougher. And even though the Greyhounds wound up suffering a 64-52 defeat, they played hard. Hard enough to shake off the effects of Iona's game-opening run. Hard enough to throw a real scare into the defending conference champions, when they cut the Gaels' advantage to just five early in the second half.

COLLEGE PARK -- It was hard to tell which was the more surprising aspect of Maryland's 31-17 defeat of West Virginia last night:The sellout crowd at newly upper-decked Byrd Stadium, now known as "The House That Bobby Ross Wanted Built."Or the sight of a Maryland team that was legitimate, talented and undefeated after three games.It's got to be the latter, right? As shocking as it was that the Terps drew their biggest football crowd in a decade on a rainy night, 15 percent of the fans were cheering for West Virginia.

When Zac Fowler was 3 years old and watched a NASCAR race on TV for the first time, he knew he would get behind the wheel one day. What he didn't know - even after firmly telling his parents, "I wanna do that," over and over again - was that his time would come less than two years later. So persistent was he about racing that Glenn and Brandy Fowler decided to allow their son to begin "getting a feel" for the brake and gas pedals at age 4 by tooling around in his newly purchased go-kart in the parking lot of St. John's Lane Elementary School in Ellicott City, just down the street from their home.

Just when things were starting to look up for the Orioles, they banged face-first into their glass ceiling again this weekend. They battled back to the .500 mark with an impressive five-game winning streak at Camden Yards, but faced with an opportunity to rise above sea level for the first time since mid-April — and a very ripe opportunity to beat one of the hottest young pitchers in the game late Friday night — they showed again why they are...
