WASHINGTON  - In an incredibly close contest between two evenly matched teams Monday night, the Orioles picked up an 8-2 victory in 11 innings against the Washington Nationals and, potentially, something much more important. The Orioles are hoping they also discovered a resurgent Chris Davis. The struggling slugger who had just two singles in his previous 38 at-bats, hit a full-count fastball from reliever Craig Stammen over the right-center wall to jumpstart a six-run 11 th inning.  After leading the majors with 53 last year, Davis homered for just the 14 th time in 2014 and the first since his walkoff June 23 against the Chicago White Sox. “When we stopped them the inning before, I knew the next inning I was coming up. And with Nelson (Cruz)

WASHINGTON -- Thanks to a persistent rainstorm Tuesday night, the budding Orioles-Nationals rivalry has been moved 50 miles up the road, but it will make a return appearance to the nation's capital in August. Tuesday's finale of a two-game series at Nationals Park was postponed after a two-hour, 30-minute rain delay. It will be made up Aug. 4 in Washington - no time for that game has been announced yet. According to Nationals manager Matt Williams, a day-night doubleheader in Washington and Baltimore this week was never in consideration because both teams have the common day off in the Baltimore-Washington area in August.

WASHINGTON - This is not the first time that the Orioles and Washington Nationals both have reached midseason with a chance to make the playoffs, but it might be the first time anyone seriously considered the possibility of a "Battle of the Beltways" World Series. Both teams were in contention in 2012. The Nationals were in first place for all but three days of that season, and the Orioles were redistilling the concept of "Oriole Magic" with a collection of strange and wonderful moments that eventually would propel them into the first-ever American League wild-card game.

Washington Nationals star pitcher Stephen Strasburg seemed a bit sad about vocal Orioles fans during the Nationals' 8-2, 11-inning loss in Washington last night. "Well, maybe someday it'll be different,” Strasburg, who fanned nine in seven innings but was victimized by a Nelson Cruz home run, said in a video posted by MASN. “But obviously that franchise has been a lot longer than we have. Can't really worry about it too much. Hopefully, our fans travel well after tomorrow. " It's a pretty diplomatic answer from a player who never says much, but his face in the video tells the story.

As the holiday weekend draws to a close, please pause from the cookouts and fireworks to reflect on the meaning of this freedom we've been celebrating, knowingly or not. When 50 years ago, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964, he placed it in the context of "a long struggle for freedom" that began when the Founding Fathers adopted the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776. "They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, not only to found a nation, but to forge an ideal of freedom; not only for political independence, but for personal liberty; not only to eliminate foreign rule, but to establish the rule of justice in the affairs of men. " Now, we know that the noble ideal of 1776 did not really embrace blacks, women, Native Americans or whites without property.

When Devin Redd thinks of Lawrence Cager, his mind goes back to the summer before Cager's freshman year at Calvert Hall. There, during July summer workouts, in his red shorts, white T-shirt and black Nike shoes, he ran routes and caught passes alongside guys who would go on to play Division I football. Redd, then the wide receivers coach at Calvert Hall, was mesmerized by Cager's size and athletic ability. But he was confused when he found out Cager wanted to be a kicker. "I said, 'Nah, man, you're not a kicker,' " Redd recalled.
