Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

NEW YORK -- One day after being held to one hit, the Orioles found their bats Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The Orioles hit three home runs, including Nelson Cruz's 40th of the season, and had 17 hits in a 5-4 win over the Yankees in front of an announced 43,201, putting a dagger in New York's already faint postseason hopes. In Monday's series opener, the Orioles managed just one hit in a 5-0 loss, marking the 11th time they've been shut out this season. But they've responded to those games well.

Fishing Creek's Louie Frase is still hanging in on CBS' Pirate Master. Unfortunately, the show is not doing that well. A couple of weeks ago, the network unceremoniously removed it from the schedule altogether, a week after moving it to Tuesday at 10 p.m. from its primo Thursday-night spot. Now the only place you can see it is on CBS.com. New episodes will be posted every Tuesday until the show ends.

A man's body was found last night under a bridge in South Baltimore in an apparent suicide, city police said. Homicide Detective Fred Daum said a 42-year-old homeless woman who had been sleeping under the northbound span of the bridge in the 3100 block of S. Hanover St. awoke about 8 p.m. and saw the man hanging a few yards away. She fled and notified someone who called police, Daum said. The man - whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives - apparently tied several strands of heavy string around a pipe under the bridge a few feet from the edge of the Patapsco River while standing on a discarded chair, wrapped the other end of the strings around his neck, and kicked the chair away to hang himself, the detective said.

Federal employees will be allowed to carry money on their health savings accounts into the next year following a months-long lobbying effort by Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland and other lawmakers in the region. Some 323,000 federal workers set aside a portion of their earnings, tax-free, in flexible spending accounts, or FSAs, to pay for health expenses. Until now, they have forfeited money not spent by the end of the year. The Office of Personnel Management announced last week that employees would be allowed to carry over up to $500 beginning in 2015.

Congressional midterm elections, the poor cousin to presidential voting in the American political system, will take on a critical role for President Barack Obama in November. The results may well determine whether he will become a premature lame duck two years before his second and last term expires. If the Democrats lose the U.S. Senate, where they hold a practical 55-45 voting control with the help of Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine, the Republicans will be able to intensify the obstructionism with which they have paralyzed the Obama legislative agenda in the House of Representatives over the last nearly six years.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- There's no denying that the Orioles offense sometimes can rely too much on home runs, which is one of the reasons why the club can be so frustrating to watch when its power hitters go silent. Following an especially frustrating one-run loss to the last-place Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, the Orioles recorded their best offensive output in the past 14 games as a pair of homers sent them to a 7-5 win Tuesday night in front of an announced 10,803 at Tropicana Field.

It would be easy enough to look at the way the Orioles have hung around the .500 mark through the first three weeks of the new season and wonder what might have been had Manny Machado been able to start the season on time and had J.J.Hardy not temporarily been reduced to a part-time player by back and hamstring problems. It also would be grossly unfair to the three players who have stepped into that breach. Jonathan Schoop might be getting more "seasoning" at Triple-A Norfolk now if Machado were playing every day at third base.
