ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Watching the Orioles for the past two weeks has to be especially frustrating for fans because the team's starting rotation, which had struggled with consistency over the season's first two months, is now pitching extremely well. But the Orioles still aren't winning. The quality start can sometimes be an overrated statistic, but over the past 11 games, the Orioles have recorded 10 quality starts, including eight straight games following the club's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay on Monday.

After a weekend of calling fellow horse owners "cowards" and "cheaters" for running fresh entrants in the Belmont Stakes, California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn said Monday that he needed to apologize "to the world," including the connections of winner Tonalist. Appearing on "Good Morning America" with his wife, Carolyn, Coburn told host Robin Roberts that "I'm very ashamed of myself. " California Chrome was trying to become the 12 th Triple Crown winner in Saturday's Belmont, but he finished tied for fourth . Tonalist, a horse who skipped the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes because he spiked a fever before the Derby, won a close race over Commissioner, another horse who didn't run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

ELMONT, N.Y. - The tension is palpable as post positions are drawn for the Kentucky Derby. Trainers entertain nightmare visions of their wonderfully quick animals becoming trapped behind a wall of 19 other horses. For the Belmont Stakes? Horsemen spoke as if Wednesday's draw barely mattered. With its 1 ½-mile length, wide turns and smaller fields, the race presents a different set of problems that overshadow fears of early traffic. Which might be a good thing for California Chrome, who will start from the No. 2 post as he tries to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.

DALLAS - As the Orioles open a three-game series against the Texas Rangers in Arlington on Tuesday, the club is optimistic that outfielder Nelson Cruz can return to the starting lineup after he was hit by a pitch Sunday in Houston. Cruz has a bruise on the outside edge of his left hand. He was feeling much better 24 hours after getting hit, and the swelling in his hand went down enough that he was able to hold a bat. One club official said that Cruz was confident he would be able to play tonight.

Mark your calendars for a new meteor shower - possibly a meteor "storm" - this week. While most showers are annual occurrences and easy to forecast, this one is a first. Earth is expected to pass through a debris trail left behind a comet that was discovered in 2004 and named Comet 209P/LINEAR. The shower could mean 100 "shooting stars" per hour, or more. Some scientists have suggested rates of up to 400 meteors per hour. How many end up being visible is uncertain because astronomers aren't sure how much and what kind of debris is trailing the comet.
