Mexico coach Javier Aguirre wants only positive thoughts going into Tuesday's match with Uruguay. "If we go out there thinking that we can lose the game, fearful and full of doubt, then we're inviting the loss or we're doubting ourselves," he said. "I've impressed on my players that we have to go out there intending to win." A win would not only qualify Mexico for the second round but make its route to the quarterfinals much easier, facing either South Korea or Greece in the knockout round.

Although this year's American League Championship Series represents the two smallest market sizes in history, according to TBS, the Game 1 matchup Friday averaged 5.92 million total viewers for the network. The total represented an increase of 9 percent from the National League Championship Series Game 1 telecast between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals on TBS last year, the network said Saturday. That game averaged 5.45 million total viewers, according to TBS. The market sizes for Kansas City and Baltimore are 70 percent smaller than the market sizes for Los Angeles and St. Louis, based on available television households, according to TBS. In 2013, the number was 6.75 million, compared to 2.015 million this year.

By day, Washington Boulevard, the main street of Pigtown, has a steady stream of foot traffic, but few places for people to go. The street just off Martin Luther King Boulevard is lined with vacant store fronts, boarded or locked by iron gates. But signs of life remain, such as a coffeehouse, a dance studio, an art gallery and a graphic design office. "It's frustrating not to be able to walk out your front door" and walk to shops and restaurants. "We all live here for the convenience," said Ryan Bruchey, a nine-year Pigtown resident and member of the Barre Circle Home Owners Association.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

Jessica Karwacki never had any formal training on how to take the draw, but that hasn't stopped the Robert Morris sophomore from pulverizing the national Division I records. As a freshman, the Hereford graduate set draw control records for a game with 25 - seven better than the previous mark - and a single season with 152. Her season mark was 21 better than the previous record set by Jacksonville's Rachel Hannon (Archbishop Spalding) in 2012. This season, Karwacki has 108 draw controls in just eight games.

NEW YORK -- A bold idea, a flight of fantasy, a brief flurry of excitement -- all it got Gary Kasparov last night was an entertaining draw in Game 11 of the World Championship Chess Match in Manhattan.The stolid Anatoly Karpov held his ground against all the champion's machinations and could neither be overwhelmed by force nor lured into error.In the end, Mr. Kasparov was obliged to bring about a draw by threatening perpetual check.The match continues even, now at 5 1/2 -5 1/2 .Early in the play in the Hotel Macklowe, Mr. Kasparov looked as though he would be either the master of ephemeral attack or the goat who overreached himself.

SUCCESS has not changed or spoiled singer-guitarist Bonnie Raitt. Last year Raitt won four Grammys -- three for her 1989 album "Nick of Time." Raitt's follow-up album, "Luck of the Draw" (Capitol Records), released today, is a close cousin in mood and style to "Nick of Time."Raitt wisely hasn't tried to fix what ain't broke; her music remains firmly rooted in Delta blues and Southern rhythm and blues. She's used the same producer, Don Was, and some of the same backup musicians and songwriters who helped make "Nick of Time" a hit that sold 3 million copies, resulting in a stellar career comeback.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- There should be a sign, someone suggested yesterday, that hangs over the door of the Kentucky Derby Museum.It would read: "The bad luck starts here."It would be posted only when the museum is the scene of the random draw for Derby post positions, and it would apply only to owners and trainers whose horses draw the outside posts in an unwieldy 19-horse field.Yesterday, D. Wayne Lukas drew the booby prize.When 19 horses were entered for the 121st Derby -- the third richest in history with a purse of $957,400 -- Lukas' three esteemed starters were sent to starting gate Siberia.

More pre-race drama. More participants. More mystery. More strategy.Those are expected to be the offshoots of the radical change in the procedure for drawing post positions in the 1998 Kentucky Derby and Preakness.During a teleconference yesterday, trainer D. Wayne Lukas, a three-time Derby winner, said, "I didn't even attend the draw half the time [before]. This will add a lot of intrigue to it."Under the new procedure, a horse's representatives will draw a number by lot, then they will pick their own starting position in order.

Archbishop Spalding midfielder Marissa Brown sent a perfect cross to the middle in the closing minutes of the game against visiting Catonsville on Monday, and forward Sarah Ensor one-timed a shot that was headed on goal. But Comets defender Lauren Vogelpohl was where she needed to be - between Ensor and the goal - to block the shot. The ball was cleared immediately after. If there was one play that depicted the solid 80 minutes of play from both sides, it was that one. Both teams had scoring chances, and both simply played better defense as No. 4 Spalding and No. 13 Catonsville played to a 0-0 draw.

J.J. Reidy boarded a garish yellow RV parked in Harbor East and shared a vision: vast greenhouses in Baltimore raising produce to feed thousands, the plants feeding on nutrients from the waste of fish swimming in nearby tanks. In two minutes and 35 seconds of video time, the graduate business student and would-be entrepreneur delivered the pitch he fashioned with his business partner, Julie Buisson, wrapping it up with a punchy closing line: "We believe we can feed our city in our city.

The Doberman sits on the edge of a bed, oblivious of the remarkable view from the floor-to-ceiling window. Modern high-rises peep out from a dense forest dotted with palm trees and shrouded in mist. Artist Jereme Scott says his painting was inspired by a 1957 photograph in National Geographic. At 66 inches by 50 inches, “The Watcher of Suite Singapore” is the largest item on display at his store, Cotton Duck Art & Apparel, in Historic Ellicott City. The shop, which opened in March, also sells T-shirts, hoodies and tank tops Scott designed, and jewelry made by designers from the Mid-Atlantic.  Scott, 28, studied fine arts at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia and received his master's in studio arts from Howard University.

- Marylander Thomas E. Perez, who has served as secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor for a little more than a year, is now being eyed for an even more prominent position in President Barack Obama's second-term Cabinet: successor to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Perez, a former Maryland labor secretary and Justice Department official, is emerging as a candidate in part because of his extensive legal background but also because he has...

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

Dumser's soft ice cream cones were still twirled perilously high, Thrashers' french fries were still doused in vinegar, and the surf was clear and cold as ever, but there were signs of change in Ocean City this summer. In some cases, literally: Town officials posted signs along the boardwalk asking visitors to refrain from using profanity. It was an unusual move in an interesting season at Maryland's most popular resort town. The planning board discussed curtailing weekly rentals in some neighborhoods but ultimately rejected the idea.

The city's plan to award Baltimore Arena naming rights to the Royal Farms chain of convenience stores drew praise Tuesday as a pairing almost as good as Western fries and chicken, though some questioned the need to place another corporate logo on a municipal building. Under the terms of the agreement, Royal Farms would pay $250,000 annually over five years and rename the venue Royal Farms Arena. If approved, the deal would roughly triple the amount received by the city for the title sponsorship when it was known as 1st Mariner Arena . That agreement, approved in 2002, netted the city $75,000 a year before it expired at the end of 2012.
