Through the first six games, No. 5 Stevenson had won five games but had yet to demonstrate the killer instinct that Paul Cantabene was looking for. On Tuesday night, the coach finally saw what he had been waiting for in the reigning national champion Mustangs' 15-9 upset of No. 3 Tufts at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. Stevenson (6-1) never trailed against the Jumbos (4-1) as the offense scored the contest's first three goals. On two occasions - once in the first quarter and once in the second - Tufts narrowed the gap to one goal, but the Mustangs regained sizable cushions.

The Orioles' two participants in the annual Futures Game ended up facing each other in the fourth inning Sunday at Target Field in Minneapolis. And Low-A Delmarva right-hander Hunter Harvey got the best of Double-A Bowie outfielder Dariel Alvarez, inducing an inning-ending groundout to escape a jam.

If the Algerian runner had stayed disqualified. If a fellow American hadn't surged past him near the finish line. If he had run .05 of a second faster. Matthew Centrowitz almost medaled in the 1,500-meter race here Tuesday night, but for several might-have-beens. But the 22-year-old graduate of Broadneck High School in Annapolis doesn't play that game, and is accepting the heartbreaker of a finish in his first Olympic Games. "What I'm trying to swallow now is not a good feeling," the dejected Centrowitz said.

Maryland coach Gary Williams often opens post-game comments by saying he was proud of his team. Not Sunday night. After the Terps lost 64-61 to Temple in the BB&T Classic, a grim Williams said he was displeased with a number of his starters for not doing a better job attacking the Owls' packed-in defense. "I was mad," Williams said. "We can't throw it in to Jordan [Williams] and stand around and have everybody watch him. " Williams' frustration had been evident in his substitution patterns.

Mark Burdett is a big man who doesn't think small. He sees way more than just a football game when Maryland and Navy kick off the new season today at M&T Bank Stadium. He sees a signature event in the making. For openers, he'd like to see the two teams play each other every three years in Baltimore. Blow it out over a full weekend with parades, festivals, the whole nine yards. Let both schools use the game as a recruiting tool. Have a Navy destroyer anchored at the Inner Harbor for tours.

It's not exactly a surprise, but the Orioles' top prospects, right-hander Dylan Bundy and shortstop Manny Machado, have been named to the prestigious 14th annual SiriusXM  All-Star Futures Game. The all-level, minor league showcase will be held July 8 in Kansas City, two days before MLB's All-Star game. Bundy, the fourth pick overall in the 2011 draft out of an Oklahoma high school, and Machado, the third pick overall in 2010 out of a Miami high school, will be part of the U.S. team that will face the “world” team.

Orioles infield prospects Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop played in the MLB Futures Game on Sunday night. Schoop, a second baseman, had a single in his only at-bat as the United States team beat the World, 6-4. Machado, one of the top prospects in baseball, went 0-for-2, but he made a fine defensive play at shortstop. Unfortunately, I can't embed the video because Major League Baseball won't allow me, but you can check out his sweet scoop and throw here . While you're at it, here is video of him taking batting pratice beforehand.

It appears that the Orioles will be well represented in next month's All-Star Game in New York, and two of the organization's top prospects have been chosen to participate in the All-Star Futures Game. Double-A Bowie outfielder Henry Urrutia and Class-A Frederick left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez have been selected to play for the World Team in the Futures Game on July 14 at Citi Field. The game highlights some of the top prospects in baseball in a United States against the rest of the world setting.

A weekend trip to New York to play with the brightest stars in minor league baseball is likely a welcome change of pace for Orioles minor leaguer Eduardo Rodriguez, who will play for the World team in Sunday's All-Star Futures Game. But it's the routine he'll be taking a break from that has helped elevate Rodriguez from a skinny mixture of promise and arm speed to the organization's top pitching prospect not named Bundy or Gausman. Ryan Minor, who managed Rodriguez at High-A Frederick before his promotion last month to Double-A Bowie, said one of the biggest improvements he saw in the 21-year-old left-hander was his preparation between starts.

The Orioles' top two prospects turned in solid performances Sunday in the MLB Futures Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Dylan Bundy, the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2011, picked up the win for the U.S. in its 17-5 win over the World. The right-handed starter gave up three hits but pitched a scoreless fourth for the victory. Manny Machado, the O's first-round draft choice in 2010, went 1-for-3 with a double that scored two U.S. runners in a nine-run sixth inning.

Four years of labor unrest didn't change anything. Neither did revenue sharing, realignment, interleague play or expansion. Major League Baseball -- still in search of a renaissance -- instead continues on the road to ruin.Perhaps that is a little harsh. The game has survived two world wars and a canceled World Series, so it probably will survive another winter of economic unrest, but the issues that have dominated the headlines the past three weeks paint a dismal picture of the sport and its future:The Florida Marlins became the first wild-card team to win the World Series, then immediately set about the unholy task of dismantling their championship roster.
