Mark Harvey, the Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium streaker, didn't get the same deal that Morganna Roberts, a stripper and exotic dancer who was known as "The Kissing Bandit," did in 1988, when she ran onto the field at Memorial Stadium and bussed Cal Ripken Jr. as he came up to bat. Harvey, 26, a Severn truck driver dressed in a Batman cape and underwear, took to the field at Camden Yards on Opening Day in April. In September, once again dressed in his Batman outfit, he jumping onto the field during the second quarter of the Ravens's game against the New England Patriots.

If you think the Ravens are being coy about their running back situation, Lorenzo Taliaferro wants to let you in on a little secret. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak doesn't let the players know in advance how he'll divvy up the carries on game day, either. "He doesn't really tell us who's going to go in during the week," said Taliaferro, the Ravens' rookie running back. "[It's] … whoever they call and put in. We'll all step out there and get the job done. " There remains a shroud of mystery about the Ravens' running game as they face the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium.

To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again.Ralph Waldo Emerson TUCKED BETWEEN a tangled woods on one side and an old stone farmhouse and outbuildings on the other, the field lay -- new green in the spring deepening to a cool evergreen in summer as it grew tall with corn. Behind the field stretched a wooded ridge; before it wound a narrow country road.

Morgan Lussi had a hand or foot in every scoring play by host St. Paul's on Wednesday as the No. 7 Crusaders beat No.12 Archbishop Spalding, 3-1, in boys soccer. Lussi gave the Crusaders (4-2) a 1-0 lead in the first half before assisting on Nate Hall's second-half goal for a 2-0 lead. And when Hall got fouled inside the box late in the game, Lussi took the penalty shot to add his second goal of the game. The Cavaliers (2-3) scored their lone goal in the game's final two minutes.

UPDATED WITH DETAILS OF CHAN'S ARREST Two men were sentenced last week for jumping onto the field in Oriole Park in separate incidents, though only one is likely to have a conviction on his record a year from now. Peter Chan, identified in court records as a 23-year-old from Towson, was found guilty of trespassing Friday in Baltimore's district court.  He was given a 90-day suspended jail sentenced and ordered to pay a $500 fine and...

Initially, I had problems with the Ravens running a fake field goal and Sam Koch scoring a touchdown. The score was already 41-17 with 9:20 left in the third quarter, and the Oakland Raiders had no chance of catching up. But once Jacoby Jones ran 105 yards on a kickoff return for a touchdown with 12:34 left in the game, I felt no compassion for Oakland. At that point, the Ravens had to virtually take a knee to not score in the game. On Jones' run, the lead blocker ran through the hole untouched and didn't block anyone.

There was no need to ask Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff how missing a potential game-tying field goal Sunday in the final seconds against New England with a Super Bowl trip on the line gnawed at him. The disappointment already resonated -- a mix of remorse and resolve -- in his voice. "The timing seemed a little bit off. Just the dynamics of the play," said Cundiff, in hushed tones, during a telephone interview with The Des Moines Register after a 23-20 loss to the Patriots in the AFC championship game.

One of the criticisms aimed at the Ravens' coaching staff was the decision to settle for a Billy Cundiff 29-yard field goal with 6:58 remaining in the fourth quarter rather than go for it on fourth down-and-goal from the Tennessee Titans' 11-yard line. Three points are always better than zero points, but since the Ravens were still trailing, 23-13, at that point, what was the harm in going for a touchdown and possibly cutting the deficit to less than a touchdown? Coach John Harbaugh gave it a go during his post-game conference Monday at the team's training facility in Owings Mills.

No question the fifth and sixth innings were a mess Monday night at Camden Yards due to a continual and heavy rain. And surely the Los Angeles Angels would have preferred if the game had been stopped after they scored a run in the top of the sixth. The Orioles scored twice in the bottom of the sixth as the field conditions worsened. Those two runs proved to be the difference in a 4-3 Orioles victory that included a two-hour and 14-minute rain delay. Here are post-game interviews with umpiring crew chief Joe West, Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Angels manager Mike Scioscia.

Manchester Valley reached the midway point of its field hockey season Tuesday and enjoyed a 3-0 road win over previously unbeaten Winters Mill in both teams' first county matchup of the year. Manchester Valley (5-1, 1-0) had two goals before the game was 10 minutes old, thanks to scores by senior Lauren Swam and junior Kira Mitchell. Senior Madi Gary added a third goal with 1 minute, 11 seconds remaining in the first half, and the Mavericks had all the momentum. Rosalia Cappadora had two assists for the winners, who won their fifth in a row after starting the season with a loss to Roland Park.

Chris Moller made a 38-yard field goal with 28 seconds left in the game to lift Morgan State (2-2, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) to a 38-35 victory over Howard (1-3, 0-1) in the New York Urban League Football Classic on Saturday in East Rutherford, N.J.

CLEVELAND -- Before his final team meeting Saturday night was over, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh opened the floor to his players and asked them if they had any questions about the organization's handling of the Ray Rice situation. The response was silence. As the Ravens' organization continues to face heavy scrutiny for the way it responded to Rice's February assault of his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator, the players continue to say that it's not a distraction on the field.

The Reservoir boys soccer team pushed forward immediately at Marriotts Ridge on Thursday. Goals soon followed. Quinton Simmons opened the scoring midway through the first half, and then Serigne Gueye and Stephen Bork scored three minutes apart early in the second to send the No. 9 Gators to a 3-1 win over the Mustangs. Reservoir, which got two assists and a dominating performance in the middle from senior Kyle Saunderson, improves to 4-1 overall and 3-1 in Howard County play.  After seeing a couple of quality chances go for naught in the early minutes, Simmons settled a long pass from Saunderson and then turned and fired a left-footed shot from 12 yards. The Gators put the game away early in the second half with two more quality finishes.

Players on the McDonogh field hockey team say they never openly talked about last year's overtime loss to Archbishop Spalding in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference final. In Thursday's rematch, however, the Eagles left little doubt that it was on the top of their minds. Led by a goal and assist by junior Brindi Griffin, No. 2 McDonogh stormed out of the gate to build a three-goal lead early in the second half, then held off a furious comeback attempt by top-ranked Spalding to preserve a 3-2 win, ending the Cavaliers' 17-game winning streak.

Now that the NFL and the NFL Players Association have implemented human growth hormone testing as part of a revised performance-enhancing drug policy, Ravens veteran defensive end Chris Canty is hoping that ensures a level playing field. As the Ravens' player union representative, Canty voted in favor of the policy. The changes include a suspension of four games without pay for a first violation, a 10-game suspension without pay for a second violation and a minimum two-year ban for a third violation.

First baseman Chris Davis was not in the starting lineup on Tuesday with lefty CC Sabathia on the mound. That alone probably is enough to sit the slugging left-hander, who is 0-for-2 with two strikeouts against Sabathia. But Davis has also been in a deep slump. Counting his 0-for-8 performance in Boston on May 6 - the 17-inning game in which he picked up a win by throwing two scoreless innings - Davis has just three hits in his past 28 at-bats, dropping his average from .326 to .274.

Every point for Maryland this season is as valuable as a precious metal. The offense, weakened by injuries and led by a new freshman quarterback, is clearly a work in progress. It just doesn't score that often and can't afford to waste red-zone opportunities. That's why everyone will understand the decision revealed Sunday to use a new field-goal kicker - freshman Brendan Magistro - for the shorter attempts. Maryland has lost two close games in a row -- and Brad Craddock has missed kicks of shorter than 40 yards in both of them.
