Former Orioles and current Washington Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Thursday to repair a torn right labrum. The Nationals feared the veteran's lingering shoulder injury was bad when it didn't respond as well as expected to rest and treatment, and recent doctors' evaluations and an X-ray with contrast dye revealed the tear. McLouth has been playing with a hurt labrum all season, manager Matt Williams said, but the symptoms worsened when he made a diving attempt for a triple late last month.

WASHINGTON -- Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams has seen Buck Showalter make bold late-game decisions before. The Orioles manager, who was the Arizona Diamondbacks' skipper and coached Williams there from 1998-2000, once made one of the gutsiest calls in baseball history. On May 28, 1998, Showalter's Diamondbacks were clinging to a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and Barry Bonds stepping to the plate. Instead of pitching to the powerful San Francisco Giants slugger, Showalter elected to walk him intentionally and concede a run.  The next batter, Brent Mayne, worked a full count and then lined out to deep right-center field, sealing a Diamondbacks win. “It takes a great deal of intestinal fortitude, I guess is the right way to put it, to do something like that,” Williams said before Monday's game.

After a fantastic first half of the season, the Washington Nationals' Rafael Soriano hasn't been the same in the second. He has allowed 10 runs over his past 112/3 innings since the All-Star break. He also has blown three saves, including one Sunday. He has been scored on in three of his past four outings. Soriano still has 29 saves, and his ERA is still only 2.59 ERA, but his five blown saves are tied for fourth most in the National League. His recent rough stretch and struggles with command have raised questions for manager Matt Williams.

"Where the Heart Is" is everything that cynical moviegoers despise and the tender-minded adore. Based on the Oprah-endorsed novel by Billie Letts, the story of a pregnant, penniless teen-ager's maturation in rural Oklahoma is a moist, overreaching valentine to the beauty and grace of small-town living. Natalie Portman stars as Novalee Nation, an ecstatically beautiful but misguided 17-year-old in her seventh month of pregnancy. The baby's father, Willy Jack (Dylan Bruno), has dreams of rock star glory, so he packs the uncomplaining Novalee into an $80 car with holes in the floor and sets off from their Tennessee hometown toward a new, uncertain life in California.

PHOENIX - Booed on his home field during the first round of the postseason, Arizona's Matt Williams was pulled out of the dugout last night by hands that wanted only to embrace him. Williams' three-run homer off New York Yankees starter Andy Pettitte in the seventh inning broke open Game 2 of the World Series and gave him a unique place in baseball history. A curtain call followed Williams' blast to left field, which finished off a 4-0 victory over the Yankees at Bank One Ballpark. He became the only player to homer for three different clubs in the World Series, including the San Francisco Giants in 1989 and the Cleveland Indians in 1997.

As an organist at his church, which he calls "the place to be," you can catch Michael Crawford with his hands on the keys just about any Sunday, bringing music to everyone's ears.But once those hands touch the football when ninth-ranked, unbeaten Patterson plays, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Crawford is not an easy catch at all.Witness his back-breaking 47-yard run against City on Friday night, which helped the Clippers to turn a 12-7 deficit into 27 unanswered points. Consider his four touchdowns vs. Southwestern in a 41-6 rout and two more while shellacking Poly by the same score.
