Right-hander Armando Galarraga, who is hoping to make the Orioles after missing much of last season because of injury, tired after a solid early performance and ended up allowing four runs in four innings as the Boston Red Sox beat the Orioles, 7-4, in a split-squad game at JetBlue Park. The Orioles and Red Sox ended in a 3-3 tie in their other contest Saturday at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota. Galarraga cruised through the first two innings and allowed a run in the third before giving up four hits and three runs in the fourth.

AirTran Airways has yet to make its first flight out of Baltimore, but the budget carrier said yesterday that it will be expanding its service here to include several Florida cities. The Orlando, Fla.-based airline will add daily nonstop service from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Orlando, Miami and Fort Myers beginning late this year and early next year. About two weeks ago, AirTran announced it would be entering the Baltimore market with three flights per day to Boston and Atlanta starting Dec. 12. AirTran will begin service here about the same time as US Airways eliminates its low-fare MetroJet fleet based in Baltimore.

And how did they die? "They can give you a tremendous amount of information," said Walsh-Haney, a 39-year-old professor at nearby Florida Gulf Coast University. "You just have to know how to read them." The eight skeletons are part of an unfolding detective story in this small city two hours south of Tampa.
