Among the participants in this year's Baltimore Pride Parade will be Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur and Ken Ulman , who is gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's running mate. The politicians say they have embraced the local LGBT community, with Rawlings-Blake performing the first gay marriage in Baltimore City in 2013 and conducting the first mass gay wedding in Druid Hill Park later that year. Mizeur would be the first female and openly gay governor in Maryland if elected.

The Orioles needed a deep outing from right-hander Bud Norris on Monday night against the Boston Red Sox after the club's bullpen accounted for 6 2/3 innings the previous day. Norris gave the Orioles just that, recording his best start since joining the club last July, tossing eight scoreless innings and holding Boston to just three hits as the Orioles handed the Red Sox their sixth loss in the last seven games with a 4-0 shutout win in front of...

ARLINGTON, Texas - Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that he is open to going to a six-man rotation once left-hander Johan Santana becomes an option to help the club. The Orioles added Santana to the 40-man roster Monday and placed him on the 15-day major league disabled list, just before he could have exercised an opt-out clause in the minor league deal he signed in March. Santana, 35, will continue his rehabilitation process, making one more start in extended spring training this week before going on a minor league rehab assignment.

The night after The Shield had arguably their biggest win as a group, the long-awaited breakup finally happened as Seth Rollins turned on them and joined Evolution. Earlier in the night, Triple H came out and said Evolution's fight against The Shield wasn't over. Batista took exception to this, as he wanted to move on. Rather than continue on with Evolution, Batista announced that he quit, and walked out (this is being done to allow Batista time to promote Guardians of the Galaxy)

Mount St. Mary's ranked 67th out of 67 Division I programs in offense and points per game and 66th in assists per game and scoring margin. But the number that resonated most with coach Tom Gravante was the team's 1-15 record in 2014. “This was one of my toughest seasons,” said Gravante, whose previous worst mark in 20 years as a head coach was a 2-12 record in 2008. “I think I posted two or three wins once before. But to go 1-15, this is a tough year, a real tough year. You don't want to expect something like this or anticipate something like this, but under the circumstances of graduating 22 young men last year and not having a lot of experience coming back, we were hopeful and we battled, but it became what it was.” A 9-5 victory over Northeast Conference foe Wagner on April 19 helped the Mountaineers of joining first-year program Monmouth as the only winless teams in Division I. Gravante acknowledged that a 14-game losing streak to open the season began to weigh on the players.

Former Ravens safety Ed Reed stood in the middle of a makeshift softball diamond on a field he knows well and waved his arms as fans chanted his name. Reed, who played 11 seasons with the Ravens, has long said that Baltimore will always feel like home, even after his expected Hall of Fame playing career is over. When that will be, however, remains very much a mystery. Speaking at former teammate Lardarius Webb's charity softball game Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, Reed said that he is preparing to play in the 2014 season.

It was a battle of two eerily similar teams. Heading into Saturday's game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Ohio Machine - both 1-3 - sat at the bottom of the Major League Lacrosse standings. Both teams had struggled to put points on the scoreboard this season, as Chesapeake had netted a league-low 38 goals and Ohio scored just 45. Each team was looking to get back on track by ending a losing streak, and the Machine emerged as the team to do so, defeating Chesapeake, 15-11, to improve to 2-3 and pick up its first win since the season opener April 26. It was the first time Ohio beat the Bayhawks (1-4)

The plan is for Santana to throw one more game,...
