We are in a rain delay at Camden Yards And if official word comes that there will be no further play today, the Orioles win, 4-2. There will no be suspension of play or going back to the fifth inning (with the Orioles up 2-1). Some quick explanation from official scorer Mark Jacobson. If play had been suspended after four and a half innings with the Orioles up 2-1, the Orioles would have won because it would have been an official game. But because the sixth inning was started, and the Angels scored a run to tie on Josh Hamilton's homer, that changed things.

One day in early August, McDonogh girls soccer coach Harry Canellakis received several emails that had two common messages. The first was congratulations on the news that his Eagles had been chosen as the No. 1 ranked team in Student Sports' preseason Fab 50 national poll. The second? “A lot of different people, mostly coaching colleagues, were saying quote, unquote: 'No pressure!' “ Canellakis said. The lofty status - the first time a girls soccer team in the Baltimore area had been ranked No. 1 nationally at the start of a season - didn't last long, however, as McDonogh lost its top ranking the following week.

Did you ever think there would be a time when the home team might like to have a rainout?That could have been the case with the Orioles over the weekend, even though they were in the midst of their longest winning streak of the young season. They returned from the West Coast facing a horrible weather forecast that predicted storms throughout the Oakland Athletics' stay in Charm City.Rainouts, of course, are a touchy subject with the Orioles, because one at the wrong time could jeopardize the possibility of Cal Ripken's setting the consecutive-games record in Baltimore.

A heavy rainstorm forced officials to suspend play five minutes into the second half yesterday afternoon, and Fallston and C. Milton Wright, both unbeaten in the Harford County League, will try to settle the outcome tomorrow afternoon, when the game is scheduled to be resumed from the point of interruption.Although the National High School Federation rules consider it an official game if at least a half has been completed when play is suspended because conditions make it impossible to continue, there is a state rule that gives dispensation to teams when approved by a state official.

The torrential downpour that transformed the Camden Yards infield into a muddy slop Monday night made any routine baseball play difficult. But the timing was perfect for the Orioles, who scored two runs through monsoon-like rain in the bottom of the sixth, then held on following a two-hour, 14-minute rain delay for a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels. With the victory, which ended just 10 minutes before midnight, the Orioles (36-28) snapped a three-game home losing streak to the Angels (27-37)

ONE OF the enduring beauties of tennis (and golf, for that matter, but that's for another day, maybe) is the virtual self-policing of play by players. Call it sportsmanship, or as some folks in tennis say, adherence to "the code." Tradition requires tennis players to rely on one another in all but tournaments approaching the highest public profile and not cheat. Honest calls must be made on out-of-bounds balls, "faults" (when the server's foot touches the baseline during a serve) or "lets," as serves that tip the tape atop the net are known.

Hereford's Steve Goad said "`a fire's been burning in my stomach" ever since last spring's eight-inning, playoff loss to eventual 2A state champ Towson. Yesterday, Goad thought that victory over the visiting Generals (1-0) was in the bag after crossing the plate to tie the game at 5-5 on a seventh-inning balk by John Rynasiewicz. Goad was sure teammate Brad DuVall, facing a full count with one out, would knock in the game-winning run from second base. But fate took a cruel twist for Goad, one of eight returning starters, as officials called the game due to darkness.

Miami -- If they were mad before Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the Dallas Mavericks should be really, really mad for Game 6 tonight in Dallas. That's cussing, conspiracy-advancing, victory-guaranteeing mad. The Mavericks, already miffed at Jerry Stackhouse's suspension for Game 5, lost 101-100 in overtime to the Miami Heat on Sunday night and then lost their cool in the aftermath of some controversial calls. "The referees are trying to cheat us out of this," said forward Josh Howard. "What are we supposed to do?"

"The officials handed the Super Bowl to the Steelers." "The refs give games to Duke." It's a great week for you conspiracy theorists out there - or is it? ESPN is routinely blamed for the downfall of shooting percentages and Western civilization, but if there's one area in which the proliferation of televised basketball improved the game, it's officiating. When the public views the same highlights that are scrutinized in conference offices, home cooking dissipates and uniformity among whistleblowers increases.

They played through falling snowflakes so thick that visibility was hampered. They played through the sloppy conditions of Walbrook's stadium field that made scooping a lacrosse ball, let alone maintaining one's footing, nearly impossible. In the end, however, the boys lacrosse teams of Walbrook and Forest Park couldn't play through their flaring tempers. Game officials dished out 14 penalties - including two separate three-minute unsportsmanlike conduct infractions against Forest Park - before calling yesterday's Baltimore City A Division boys lacrosse game with 2:50 left in the third period and Walbrook ahead 10-2.
