Typically terse, Orioles manager Paul Richards made one comment to Jim Gentile on his historic feat and never mentioned the subject to him again."Son," Richards said as Gentile returned to the dugout, "I don't think that's ever been done before."That was it. Gentile had become the first player in major-league history to hit grand slams in successive at-bats in the same game, yet all he got from Richards were nine words."Richards never got excited," said Gentile, recalling the grand slams he hit against the Minnesota Twins at Metropolitan Stadium on May 9, 1961.

Mayor Sheila Dixon pointed to the killing of a former city councilman as Exhibit A why someone caught with an illegal, loaded handgun should be imprisoned longer, a proposal she pushed Wednesday in the state capital. Just a month before Kenneth N. Harris Sr. was shot to death last fall outside a popular jazz club in Northeast Baltimore, a 20-year-old charged in the killing was sentenced to the 85 days he had spent in jail for carrying a loaded weapon in Baltimore County. "When you're out in a matter of days or weeks, what kind of message is that sending to them?"

As usual, the Super Bowl champions suffered a drain of talent in the offseason. But that won't stop the Seattle Seahawks from winning a second straight NFL title. Repeating as champion is difficult, so much in fact that the last team to do it was the New England Patriots after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The Seahawks also lost two offensive starters in free agency, and they cut two on defense to alleviate salary cap concerns. But Seattle is still loaded, especially on defense, which should carry it to the Super Bowl where the Seahawks will defeat either the Denver Broncos or the Patriots from the AFC. The Seahawks have allowed the fewest points in the league the past two seasons.

A bill that would penalize adults who leave loaded guns within reach of children was enacted yesterday by the General Assembly, giving the Schaefer administration a victory after two years of struggle.The measure requires gun owners to secure loaded weapons so children under 16 don't have unsupervised access to them. It passed easily yesterday in the Senate. The House of Delegates had approved it earlier.As amended by the Senate, the bill was acceptable to the Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, an affiliate of the National Rifle Association.

A MAJOR ASSET of a grilled sausage sandwich is the "load" that comes with it, as in the mix of grilled onions and peppers tossed or "loaded" on the sausage.A loaded sausage is ideal summer fare. All that smoke and all those peppers benefit from being in a well-ventilated setting, like a ballpark. This year, for example, whenever I go to an Oriole game at Camden Yards, I usually get a grilled, "loaded" sausage.The other night when I wanted to make "loaded sausages" in my back yard, I had to steal a recipe from a Boson Red Sox fan, Chris Schlesinger.

Officials with the Maryland Transportation Authority said the truck was carrying heavy stone slabs that were thrown all across the highway during the accident.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For the majority of this young season, the Orioles' vaunted offense - which led the major leagues in home runs last year and then added slugger Nelson Cruz this offseason - has failed to live up to its advanced billing. On Saturday, in a 1-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals, the Orioles' offensive struggles nearly took a historic turn. Royals left-hander Danny Duffy retired the first 20 batters he faced and was just seven outs away from pitching the first perfect game against the Orioles in modern franchise history.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After an opening five weeks to the season that included rain delays, irregular start times and early-morning flights, the Orioles were looking forward to playing three night games with no risk of weather delays under the roof of Tropicana Field. They didn't account for a 19-minute eighth-inning delay when a set of lights went out along a catwalk connected to the dome's roof Tuesday night. But when play resumed - the row of lights still out - the Orioles were finally sparked by a big hit they had lacked all night.

An article in the April 18, 1914 edition of The Argus reported the need for more help at the post office. In spite of the increase in the volume of mail coming to the Catonsville postoffice, including the load of parcels post packages, the Postoffice Department has not increased its carrier force for several years. The force of seven men are accomplishing the almost impossible. To attempt a regular schedule of delivery on certain days is quite out of the question. It simply can't be done- hence the delay in the delivery of The Argus to many subscribers last Saturday on account of the heavy Easter mail.

Police seized a loaded handgun, a bag of ammunition and drug paraphernalia, including packaging material and a scale, during a search of University of Maryland football player Wes Brown's campus apartment last summer, newly released documents show. Brown was suspended last year, and university officials tied the move to an incident in which he allegedly shoved a Baltimore police officer who visited the College Park campus as part of a shooting investigation. But Brown's connection to crimes under investigation turned out to be more extensive.

In addition, Pro Freight Cargo Services, a South Florida freight company, said it, too, was pressured by Aaliyah's representatives to haul equipment to the Bahamas without a careful weight check, citing production schedules.

In his four years at Notre Dame, point guard Eric Atkins has gone from being a steady freshman who came off the bench for a veteran team to the unquestioned senior leader - and now unlikely leading scorer - on a young team searching to find itself in its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 6-foot-2, 182-pound Atkins, who grew up in Columbia and played at Mount St. Joseph, recently saw his role change from facilitator to first option after Notre Dame's leading scorer, fellow senior guard Jerian Grant, was suspended by the university last month for an academic issue.
