Orioles right-handed relievers Darren O'Day and Tommy Hunter have been good friends for years. They even have vacationed together in the offseason. But there is a friendly rivalry brewing between the two, caused by bullpen-homer-gate. In the fifth inning Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays, first baseman Chris Davis launched a home run to left-center field. The ball was headed toward the visiting team's bullpen at Camden Yards when Hunter jumped up and caught it for a highlight that was listed among ESPN's top 10 plays of the day. "I didn't want the other team to get the ball," Hunter said.

Del. Jon S. Cardin and state Sen. Brian E. Frosh briefly shook hands Monday night. But that's where the niceties ended. In front of a packed audience at the University of Baltimore School of Law, the leading candidates for the Democratic party's nomination for attorney general got downright hostile. Frosh, of Montgomery County, accused Cardin of missing a large number votes in the General Assembly and associating with a rapper facing human trafficking charges. Cardin, of Baltimore County, accused Frosh of working against anti-child predator legislation and trying to implement an "Orwellian" bail system in which a computer decides a prisoner's freedom.

How do public health experts handle research when they know they cannot offer subjects the best medical treatment possible - only "less than the best" solutions? It poses serious ethical issues, especially when children are involved in the research, as a controversial Kennedy Krieger Institute study shows. Just 20 years ago, most houses in East Baltimore contained lead paint that was known to be poisoning children at epidemic levels. Amid the crisis, researchers at the pediatric hospital sought cheap, effective abatement techniques because full-scale cleanup could cost $20,000 or more per house - more than many of the properties were worth.

Anne Arundel's Republican county executive candidates Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh continued their intense and personal primary fight during a debate in Severna Park Wednesday night. Though they spent most of the debate treading familiar territory - who has a better record on taxes, who is best to continue to move past the scandal of the previous county executive - the debate brought forth a new accusation. Neuman, the current county executive, alleged that one of the restaurants co-owned by Schuh allowed Hell's Angels members to show their colors, despite a request from county police not to allow the practice.

When the Democrats running for governor met for their second three-way television debate Monday night, charges and countercharges flew - along with allegations of distortion, deception and half-truths. Doug Gansler was especially aggressive, pointing to votes Anthony Brown cast in the General Assembly more than a decade ago to make the case that Brown lacks sympathy for crime victims. Heather Mizeur avoided finger-pointing, but was the target of one of Gansler's more easily debunked - and likely intentionally sarcastic - claims.

For today's edition of the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial debate fact-check, we'll focus on a recurring point of contention between Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, and on the one aspect of Del. Heather Mizeur's platform that generated significant disagreement among the candidates. Is Virginia 'cleaning our clock'? Mr. Gansler attacked the economic record of Mr. Brown and Gov. Martin O'Malley in part by suggesting the economy in Virginia is much stronger than the economy in Maryland.

The Democrats running for governor traded barbs Monday night over Maryland's economy, marijuana laws, and the troubled rollout of its health insurance website in their final televised debate before a primary in which pundits suggest many voters are still undecided. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler repeatedly clashed, accusing the other of deceiving the voters. Even Del. Heather R. Mizeur, who stood above the fray in the previous three-way debate, was drawn into the contentious exchanges.
