From Sun staff reports | December 11, 2012
Digital Harbor was having a little trouble getting some separation from Southside Academy in boys basketball Tuesday night. But a tripledouble from Corey Mendez and a switch in defense helped the host Rams pull away and win, 55-38. Mendez finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Digital Harbor (2-0). The Rams' half-court trap defense gave them a 10-point lead at halftime, but a switch to a full-court press pushed the lead up to 17 points in the second half.

For a guy who has always been such a proficient hitter, Carlos Mendez has a lot of strikes against him. He plays a variety of positions, but none particularly well. He has bounced around four organizations in the past five years, giving the impression that he's not worth keeping. And with his soft build - the only ripples on his stomach are from the potato chips he munches - he looks like he should be directing traffic into the ballpark or making last call at the beer concession. So what is this guy doing on the Orioles' bench?

The mission was a lot easier to define than it was to carry out. The Orioles wanted six larger-than-life bronze likenesses of the six living legends who have had their numbers retired by the team, and they had to be perfect. The first one will be unveiled at Oriole Park on Saturday, when the team celebrates the life and career of Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. Brooks Robinson will be honored next, then Earl Weaver , Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr. - one a month throughout the season.

The Orioles will begin their six-game road trip tonight with a new bench player and more depth in their farm system. Carlos Mendez's contract was purchased yesterday from Triple-A Ottawa, allowing him to reach the majors for the first time in 13 professional seasons. He accompanied the team to Anaheim as the replacement for Jose Leon, who returned to the Lynx after Sunday's game. "Jose really hasn't had too many opportunities, so we thought we'd move him out to Ottawa, freshen him up, and bring up a hot hitter in Mendez who can also serve as a third catcher if possible and give [manager]

Carlos Mendez missed one game at Triple-A Ottawa before the Orioles purchased his contract May 19, and that was only because manager Gary Allenson didn't want him to wear down over the course of a long season. It's not as if Mendez wanted out of the lineup. Now he can't get into it. Mendez has made six appearances with the Orioles, the last coming Sunday in St. Louis. In 12 minor league seasons, he was accustomed to getting regular at-bats. Now he's getting splinters. It's a good kind of pain.

The Orioles optioned infielder Jose Leon to Triple-A Ottawa after yesterday's game, freeing a spot on the roster that apparently will go to a minor-league call-up instead of B.J. Surhoff, who's eligible to come off the disabled list today. It also could touch off other moves before the club begins a two-city road trip tomorrow night in Anaheim, Calif. The Orioles are growing more curious about Carlos Mendez, signed in November as a minor league free agent. His .384 average is second in the International League, and his 66 hits ranked first.

The stolen car - a Toyota Camry - then crashed into a rowhouse at the southwest corner of the intersection, said Officer Nicole Monroe, a police spokeswoman.

Last year, Barry Mendez came to Baltimore from London to help a friend who was donating a kidney. His friend's generosity touched him so deeply that he decided to give up one of his own kidneys - not to a friend or relative, but to anyone who needed it. On Sunday, Mendez' act of charity allowed not one but three people to receive new kidneys, as a team of 50 doctors and other medical workers at Johns Hopkins Hospital simultaneously transplanted three...

John Leguizamo is an actor and writer known for being outrageous. So it's somewhat surprising that about half of the characters in his one-man show, "Mambo Mouth" -- being performed at the Forum Theater by Peter J. Mendez -- are xTC actually rather gentle, even -- dare I say it? -- endearing.An anthology of seven Hispanic characters, from a teen-aged boy to a transvestite prostitute, this show -- which brought Leguizamo to national prominence in 1991 -- is often as hard-edged and graphic as the graffiti-decorated street bills plastered all over the set. But when appropriate, Mendez's performance also demonstrates how Leguizamo's characters can touch the heart.

Frank and Shirley Mendez are thrilled -- and thankful -- that their Victorian home has a history.For them, it was more than merely interesting to be able to trace the ownership of their quarter-acre lot in Southwest Baltimore back to the Duchess of Leeds, a granddaughter of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.And it was more than simply appealing that under their linoleum floors were bits of newspapers with stories of President Roosevelt.For this couple, recently relocated from an earthquake-prone section of California, the history is downright reassuring.

As the wind whipped out of the Inner Harbor toward Fort McHenry late yesterday afternoon, Petty Officer Edward Mendez looked from the U.S. Naval Reserve Training Center on Fort Avenue and couldn't believe what he was seeing. "It looked like a small toy boat blown out of control," Mendez said last night, recalling the initial moments of Baltimore's catastrophic water taxi accident. "The wind was so strong. I'd never seen anything like it." "As the boat tried to make it back to shore, they tried to turn it, and there was nothing they could do. The wind didn't really push it up. It just rolled it over," said Mendez, 41, of San Diego.

Loyola's efforts late in the first half last night, when it took a healthy cut into a 13-point deficit against Niagara, could be identified as giving its fans false hope. Right now, there's no other kind of hope for those observing the Greyhounds, who quickly fell further behind in the second half of a 79-55 loss to the Purple Eagles in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game. It was the 12th straight loss to Niagara (10-4, 4-1) and 28th consecutive defeat overall for Loyola (0-15, 0-6)
