Right-handed reliever Heath Bell, who was released by the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, signed a minor league deal with the Orioles on Friday night and will report to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. A former, three-time All Star closer with the San Diego Padres, the 36-year-old Bell has struggled since signing a three-year, $27 million deal with the Miami Marlins before the 2012 season. He has been traded twice since then and compiled a 7.27 ERA in 13 games with the Rays this year before being released.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The drama of Thursday's night game had little to do with the Kansas City Royals' impressive hard-throwing rookie Yordano Ventura or another short but solid performance from the Orioles' Wei-Yin Chen. No, this one was mostly about who the Orioles would use to close out their 2-1 victory over the Royals. The answer was lefty Zach Britton, who had never had a save in his professional career - not in the minors nor the majors. And he handled it flawlessly, the way he has pitched this season.

A pair of former major leaguers are heating up this month for Triple-A Norfolk, adding to a list of veteran position players who are vying for a call-up should the Orioles have a need. Outfielder Quintin Berry and infielder Alexi Casilla are both hitting well over .300 in the past 10 days, after each saw his average plummet below the Mendoza line in mid-April. Berry, the speedster who won a World Series ring as a reserve for the Boston Red Sox last season, is batting .333/.438/.407 with three stolen bases in the past 10 games to put his line at .270/.365/.351 on the year.

Top-seeded Maryland rolls into the NCAA tournament looking to extend some of the most impressive streaks in any college sport. The Terps are in the NCAA tournament for a record 30th time and 25th consecutive time. No other women's lacrosse team has won more NCAA championships (10), more consecutive championships (seven) or more tournament games (54). They also have the record for most appearances in the title game (17). Maryland, whose program dates to 1974, has won 11 national titles; the first came in the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women in 1981, a few years before the NCAA took over women's intercollegiate athletics and the AIAW ceased to exist.
