Goalie Duane Derksen quickly sensed it after he rejoined the Skipjacks. His old teammates seemed to have more confidence in him."They said they noticed the difference in my game," Derksen said. "They felt I was a lot better."More than two months of playing regularly in the low minors, with the Hampton Roads Admirals of the East Coast Hockey League, brought Derksen's game back to life.He played two games with the Skipjacks last weekend, picking up a win and a loss, and probably will start one of the two coming games against the Hamilton Canucks, tonight's or Sunday night's.

It's difficult to imagine a scenario where Nick Markakis, the Orioles' No. 1 draft pick in 2003, and veteran utility player Clay Bellinger would dress in the same clubhouse and participate in the same on-field drills. They're at completely different stages of their professional lives, separated by two levels of the farm system and 15 years. The only way they would come together, yesterday in the sweltering heat at Camden Yards, was for a workout with the Greek Olympic baseball team that will vie for the gold in Athens later this month.

Skipjacks goalkeeper Duane Derksen couldn't have picked a better time to have a spectacular game.In yesterday's 3-1 win over Southern Division foe Rochester, Derksen made 32 saves on 33 shots in his first full game in two weeks.Baltimore coach Barry Trotz said he hopes that, if his team can win their next three games (Hershey, Hamilton and Halifax), the Skipjacks (24-33-12) can earn a spot in the playoffs and put pressure on tomorrow's opponent, Hershey, to win eight of its next nine games to earn a berth.

LOS ANGELES - Orioles scout Rob Derksen, the coach of the 2004 Greek Olympic baseball team, died of a massive heart attack yesterday in New York. He was 44. Derksen served as a Pacific Rim scout for the Orioles before assuming the responsibility of assembling a national team for Greece, which has an automatic entry in this summer's Olympics in Athens. He also coached the Australian Olympic baseball team to a seventh-place finish in 1996 in Atlanta and coached the 2000 entry from Guam that failed to qualify for the games in Sydney, Australia.

Duane Derksen joined the Skipjacks with a batch of credentials but without illusions of instant greatness.That is a good thing, for Derksen is a reserve goalie at the moment. When the Skipjacks visit the Hershey Bears tonight, the 24-year-old rookie will be filling in for Byron Dafoe, who sprained an ankle last Friday."Byron is doubtful for this weekend, too," said Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz, referring to Saturday and Sunday games against Cape Breton and Binghamton. "He could be out another five days, a week or even two or three weeks."

QUEBEC -- With two picks in the top 17, the Washington Capitals hope take a big step toward strengthening their future in the NHL's annual entry draft.Washington is one of four teams with two first-round choices at today's draft (noon, HTS). The Capitals hope that pre-draft speculation -- which has labeled this first round as deep -- can place two blue-chip prospects in the system.While French-Canadian star Alexandre Daigle, a center who is expected to be taken first by the Ottawa Senators, will be fitted and celebrating in his new club's colors by the time Washington's turn comes, there is plenty of talent available.

Game 6 is scheduled Wednesday in Binghamton.
