The Orioles have been, for the past season and a half, one of the most opportunistic teams in baseball, so it would not be fair for them to curse the fates for letting one promising opportunity slip away in a 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox. They can curse home plate umpire Jeff Nelson if they want, as he blew a call that led to a pair of Red Sox runs in a three-run fourth inning on Saturday. They can curse their own inability to put the hammer down on Boston pitcher John Lackey when they had a chance to get more out of a first-inning rally that might have made things a lot more comfortable for starting pitcher Freddy Garcia.

I was a bit confused by the letter Jeff Nelson wrote regarding the need for a White Student Union at Towson University. For the record, "white" is how most people would describe me. That's no more a part of my heritage than the fact that my eyes are blue. Now I claim no particular expertise in racial matters, but it seems to me that being black comes with a heritage, much more so than being white. White people in the U.S. were spared slavery, Jim Crow, segregation and having to struggle for equal rights.

OFFICIALLY, HE was the Orioles' "video coaching assistant," the young man who recorded and logged videotapes of baseball games as a way of helping players with their hitting and pitching. But unofficially, Jeff Nelson was a lot more than that. In a short span -- the 1995 season through 1998 -- he became a clubhouse spirit, a friend of players and even a source of inspiration. His death the other day -- of complications after surgery -- shocked and saddened a whole lot of Orioles. Many of them will attend his funeral today in Randallstown.

LANDOVER -- NHL teams now know when they play the Washington Capitals they're going to face first-class goaltending from Jim Carey, first-rate team defense and some pretty snazzy scoring from the likes of Peter Bondra, Michal Pivonka and Joe Juneau.But what the rest of the NHL is learning is that the Capitals are capable of doing something they've never had a knack for.The Capitals are continually finding a way to win.Yesterday, with three forwards out with injury and flu, their top defenseman, Sylvain Cote, tossed from the game 6:07 after the opening faceoff for checking from behind, and their usual goal producers closed down, the Capitals used goals by rookie Jeff Nelson and Kelly Miller to beat the Boston Bruins, 2-1.Miller's game-winning goal came with 2:01 left.

SEATTLE -- It began as perhaps the least compelling of the four divisional playoff series. The Seattle Mariners had the worst record of any American League team in the postseason and the New York Yankees won a wild-card berth even though they were out of division contention by early August.Instead, it has turned out to be the most competitive -- and most exciting. The Seattle Mariners rallied from an early five-run deficit last night and scored a heart-stopping 11-8 victory after 1995 American League batting champion Edgar Martinez hit a tie-breaking grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning of Game 4 at the Kingdome.

The emotions built throughout the night, both from being overwhelmed by Texas Rangers starter C.J. Wilson and incensed by the strike zone that he was afforded by plate umpire Jeff Nelson. Finally, the Orioles' most mild-mannered player vented. Nick Markakis was ejected in the sixth inning for the first time in 747 career big league games, and his manager, Buck Showalter, was given the hook three innings later in the Orioles' 2-0 loss to the Rangers before an announced 18,751 on Friday night at Camden Yards.

SEATTLE - The Seattle Mariners will get precious little time to bask in the glory of one of the greatest regular-season performances in baseball history. They open the postseason today against the Cleveland Indians at Safeco Field, and not one of their major-league-record-tying 116 victories will count toward the outcome of the best-of-five American League Division Series. The New York Yankees were in a similar situation in 1998, when they set an American League record with 114 regular-season victories on the way to their first of three straight world titles.

Quote: "It's tough if you're not in a groove to get in a groove when you only get one batter. I don't know it it's not being aggressive, I'm just not facing many guys." - Jeff Nelson, one of the Yankees relievers victimized in Anaheim's four-run seventh inning. It's a fact: Detroit failed in its bid to reach .500 for the first time since they were 1-1. The Tigers, who have won eight of 11 and 14 of 21, haven't been .500 this late in a season since 1997. Who's hot: Anaheim reliever Shigetoshi Hasegawa recorded his sixth save for the Angels.
