Terry McKenna scored four goals, including his team's first three, as Holy Cross defeated Navy, 7-5, in men's lacrosse at the inaugural Metropolitan Lacrosse Classic on Sunday at Citi Field in New York. The win was the first over a military academy for the Crusaders and ended their nine-game losing streak to the Midshipmen. The Mids (3-5, 1-2 Patriot League) cut their deficit to 6-5 with 11:51 remaining when Sam Jones (Severna Park) scored his seventh goal of the season. McKenna then sealed the win for Holy Cross (4-3, 1-1)

NEW YORK -- In his second at-bat in Tuesday's All-Star Game, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones doubled against Cliff Lee. It was his first hit in four All-Star at-bats spanning three games. Afterward, Jones wanted to talk more about his first at-bat, in which he struck out on a 98-mph fastball from the New York Mets' Matt Harvey. “That was my best at-bat of the year,” he told me afterward. Jones was down 1-2 in the count, fouled off a pitch, took a ball, fouled off two more, took another pitch to get to a full count, fouled off another nasty slider before swinging through Harvey's heat.

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, the Game's MVP, on what the night was like: “I can't describe it. I have no words for it. It's been a wonderful night. The whole event.” Detroit manager Jim Leyland on Rivera: “I said to the players before the game, I said I'm not a motivational speaker but my motivation for tonight is to work our fannies off and bring in the greatest closer of all time.” J.J. Hardy on breaking up a double play to score Adam Jones and what Jones and Chris Davis said to him when they met him after the inning: “They were talking about my speed.

After a deliberate process that stretched nearly two months, the Mets have chosen Terry Collins as the team's next manager, but the team was holding off an official announcement Sunday until the contract details are finished, Newsday reported. Collins emerged from a group of 10 candidates picked by general manager Sandy Alderson , who trimmed it to four finalists, and the Mets have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday at Citi Field. "We've made our decision," a Mets spokesman said Sunday, "and we are working on the terms of a contract.

Look out for the Phillies and Red Sox in the next few weeks. With the exception of Kevin Youkilis , they're starting to get their injured players back and seem poised to put themselves in better position entering September. … The Red Sox have Carlos Delgado trying to get ready in a hurry at Triple-A Pawtucket. It's fair to say he's motivated — he'll make $20,000 a month in the minors and could make $3 million if he joins the Red Sox. … The Rays aren't as worried as you'd think about Jeff Niemann and Wade Davis , who went on the DL with strained shoulders.

The Orioles have approached Major League Baseball about the potential of hosting the 2016 All-Star Game at Camden Yards, a club spokesman confirmed. There is no formal application process, but club owner Peter Angelos did send a letter to baseball commissioner Bud Selig requesting that Baltimore host the 2016 event. Although teams can present their interest to the league office at any time, MLB usually officially awards its next All-Star Game roughly a year before the event. And, traditionally - although not always - the Midsummer Classic alternates between American League and National League hosts, meaning the game would likely come to Baltimore only in an even-numbered year.

The firepower in their bullpen makes it easy for the Washington Nationals to envision life without Drew Storen, until the ninth inning arrives and the score is tied. Storen will visit Dr. James Andrews today for a second opinion on his elbow, the first step in a process that may leave him sidelined for half the season. The Nationals will continue to survey their options without the man to whom their ninth innings belong. Long after Edwin Jackson had left his first start for the Nationals on Monday, the New York Mets used a calamitous ninth inning to rally to a 4-3 win at Citi Field and remain unbeaten.

NEW YORK - Along the far side of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda at Citi Field on Monday afternoon, there was a scene that hasn't occurred at the All-Star Game in years: A full-fledged Orioles row. One wall, five tables and five Orioles players - all answering rapid-fire questions that ranged from deep to dumb in the annual media briefing a day before the midsummer classic. What does Chris Tillman think about the Biogenesis scandal? Why does Chris Davis believe 61 is more impressive than 73?

Kevin Spacey was in the house. And that, coupled with the broiling heat and humidity - it was cooler in Nicaragua, you can look it up - could have set the tone for all sorts of weirdness for the Orioles. Instead, they took apart the Toronto Blue Jays in a business-like fashion Sunday with a 7-4 win at Camden Yards to head into the All-Star break winners of four of their past five games, their confidence red-lining with the summer temperatures. And why wouldn't they be confident, with a lineup - six hitters with more than 43 RBIs - that can bludgeon other teams, led by the best slugger in baseball right now, Chris Davis.

I'll watch next week's All-Star Game because I love baseball and I'm a sucker for star-power, pageantry, tradition and all that other stuff. I want to see how Orioles starters J.J. Hardy, Chris Davis and Adam Jones do. And I want to see the game's newest Wonder Boy, Manny Machado, get in and make another miracle play at third that has the sell-out crowd at Citi Field and a national TV audience shooting to its feet and shouting: "NO! DID YOU SEE THAT?!" Because "Crush" Davis is in it, I'll even watch the Home Run Derby, which has somehow managed to become boring over the years.

I have no particular love for Shea Stadium. Never even been inside. From what I hear, it's not a lovely place. Leaky pipes and "curious smells," says one report. "A dump," says another. Still, I'm sorry to learn that last week's New York Mets season opener will be the ballpark's last. More to the point, I'm sorry to learn that next year they'll be playing in a new park called Citi Field.

It took 25-plus innings at Citi Field before the Orioles' offense finally woke up, finally shook off a near-historic malaise and put some runs on the board. They only had two more innings to make the runs count, though. And they couldn't in a 4-3 loss that cemented the New York Mets' three-game sweep against a suddenly scuffling Orioles squad. “It was a frustrating series, especially the first 25 innings, I'd say,” Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said. “Very, very frustrating.
