Known - and adored - as the mustachioed libertarian Ron Swanson of NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Nick Offerman brings his talents and quirk to Baltimore with his show, American Ham with Nancy and Beth, featuring the singing duo of Offerman's wife, Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace") and Stephanie Hunt. Offerman performs at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric on Sept. 4 and gave us 20 reasons to see his show. You better listen to him. 1. My wife's astonishing singing voice.

To be clear right at the start: This isn't a defense of Jose Offerman, who Tuesday retaliated for being hit by a pitch in a minor league game by charging the mound with his bat. It's more of a condemnation of one of the more stupid, more nonsensical aspects of baseball at every level: the Unwritten Rules. All over baseball, Offerman, the former major leaguer now playing for the Long Island Ducks, is being dogged for bringing a bat into a fight when the aforementioned rules dictate that he shouldn't even have gone fighting at all. The consensus is that he snapped, right along with his sense of baseball decorum.

On the field: Brady Anderson's home run in the second inning extended his hitting streak to 11 games. Anderson's homer, his ninth of the year, leaves him in a tie for the league lead with Detroit first baseman Cecil Fielder. Going into yesterday's game, Anderson was tied for third in the AL in runs scored, ranked second in total bases with 55 (Frank Thomas was first with 56), first in slugging percentage (.753) and second in extra-base hits (14), behind Seattle's Edgar Martinez.In the dugout: Jose Offerman was one of the Royals' primary acquisitions during the off-season, a young player who would supposedly add to the nucleus of Kansas City's young players.

LOS ANGELES -- His was a microcosm of the Los Angeles Dodgers' season, until last night, when Kevin Gross turned a forgettable season into an unforgettable one. He pitched a no-hitter.His victims were the San Francisco Giants, defeated 2-0 before 25,561 fans at Dodger Stadium, nearly all of whom uncharacteristically were there at the end.It was the first no-hitter in the major leagues this year and the first since three Atlanta pitchers combined to no-hit San Diego last Sept. 11. It was the eighth no-hitter in Los Angeles Dodgers' history and the first since Fernando Valenzuela threw one June 29, 1990.

Making the players around him better isn't something Towson midfielder Spencer Ford tries to do -- it just happens.And as a result, Towson's trophy case just happens to be getting more and more crowded.In his three years at Towson High, Ford has epitomized the term "gamer," helping the Generals win back-to-back 1A-2A state titles in boys lacrosse, as well as a state championship and two region playoff berths in boys soccer.On the lacrosse field this season, Ford has adjusted to the transformation from set-up man to finisher.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Orioles manager Davey Johnson is a half-full kind of guy, choosing to focus on the positive.If he were the half-empty sort, he might rant and rave about how David Wells gave up five runs to the Royals in the first inning last night, right after the Orioles scored three. But as a half-full optimist, Johnson can take heart in the fact that Wells showed some heart, came back and lasted eight innings.However, Wells was long gone in the 16th inning, when Mike Macfarlane's sacrifice fly scored David Howard to give the Royals a 7-6 victory over the Orioles in the longest major-league game of the year, by innings.

Jose Offerman signed for a higher average salary than Roberto Alomar earned last season. Alan Mills signed for nearly $2 million more than the Orioles thought he was worth. And the real spending has yet to begin.Orioles general manager Frank Wren said yesterday that Mo Vaughn was too expensive for his taste, and that Bernie Williams and Kevin Brown were approaching that point, though he didn't know the specifics of their offers.None of that is a surprise.The real problem for the Orioles is that second-tier free agents like outfielder Brian Jordan and right-hander Todd Stottlemyre might also land contracts more lucrative than expected.
