Manny Machado won't be playing in front of a national audience this October, but it's clear the Orioles' star third baseman has made an imprint beyond Baltimore in his second big league season. Major League Baseball released its list of the most popular jerseys that have been sold since the All-Star break, and Machado ranks fourth behind only Mariano Rivera, Matt Harvey and Yasiel Puig. The list is based on Majestic Athletic sales at the MLB.com shop. Chris Davis is the only other Oriole in the top 20, coming in at 16th.

One of Rachmaninov's greatest strengths as a composer is the way he concludes a piece. In most of his best music, the denouements have a sense of inevitability and mounting excitement. When the end finally arrives, it's usually with a grand peroration that lifts the listener out of his seat.Among his major works, the Symphony No. 3 is the exception to that rule -- and it was with that problematical work that Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Music Director David Zinman chose to end his all-Rachmaninov program last night in Meyerhoff Hall in the third of the orchestra's Summerfest concerts.

The Washington Nationals unleashed a rare display of hitting clout on Tuesday night, hitting three home runs against the New York Mets. The catch was, they all were of the solo variety, and while the Mets didn't collect more than a double, that was enough to send Washington to its fifth loss in six games, 6-4, and overshadow catcher Wilson Ramos' first multi-homer performance. Before an announced 14,603 at Nationals Park, Ramos connected off New York starter Chris Young in the second and fourth innings, and his second tied the score at 3. But Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann got into trouble in the sixth, and reliever Doug Slaten failed to bail him out when Mets catcher Josh Thole's two-RBI double produced what would be the decisive runs.

Moments later, Cirovski's 2-year-old daughter interrupted him by walking out on the field and asking her father to change her diaper.It was that sort of a day.Charging out to a three-goal lead, the Terrapins started the Final Four party a little early before having to sweat out the final 15 1/2 minutes and stave off Creighton for a 3-2 victory in an NCAA quarterfinal game yesterday at Ludwig Field.

Reyes is anti-baseball Paul Doyle Hartford Courant In one of the greatest 24-hour stretches in baseball history, fans were treated to wall-to-wall drama. Everywhere, players were seizing the moment. Then there's Jose Reyes, who decided to sit on his moment. He left the Mets' game after his first-inning bunt single in an effort to secure a batting title. Reyes isn't just the anti-Ted Williams, he's anti-everything we love about baseball. Even his manager, baseball lifer Terry Collins, said he understood the jeering he heard from the crowd.

The Orioles began their most recent nine-game homestand with a new manager and the faint hope that the change would give them a little spark, perhaps infuse some missing positive energy. After Sunday's 11-4 loss to the New York Mets in a game the Orioles were out of before their first hitter stepped to the plate, the potential homestand of hope mercifully ended with seven losses in nine attempts. "It would be nice to get a spark [from a manager change], but it is the same stuff.
